The Chicago Cubs’ early season struggles continue as they suffer a 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Wrigley Field. With the loss, the Cubs slipped to a 5-14 as they were booed by the 9,391 fans in attendance. This led their manager Lee Elia to deliver the greatest rant in the history of baseball, if not the history of sports. Elia would eventually be fired as the Cubs finished the season 71-91.
