It’s nearly June 1st, the Cubs are now four games below five hundred. Again. We got rid of the twin cancers of MacPhail and Dusty; Hendry spent over three hundred million during the offseason. But are we competitive? No sir, you can’t change a culture overnight. You don’t come to Wrigley to win championships, you come there to make big money, play a lot of day games and enjoy one of the finest ballparks in baseball. I think that’s what the players think, whether they’ll admit to it or not. It shows in their performance.
Either that or these guys don’t have the personal character it takes to win ballgames consistently. I truly don’t know how long it will take to turn things around but I’m starting to think that Mark Cuban might be the best owner for this team after all.
