Going to try a new abbreviated format for GirlieView for this week, for three reasons:

1. I have been too long-winded in previous episodes.
2. I’m on my way to Pennsylvania for a wedding (not mine).
3. Not a lot of uplifting thoughts are coming to mind about the Cubs this week!

I’m not in a panic, I don’t think the whole team should be benched or the whole coaching staff fired. But a well placed statement here or there (via benching, firing, or some sort of acquisition other than Jake Peavy) wouldn’t hurt.

VFTB conversation this week made the rounds from Mustaches The Spirit film to Sabermetrics to whether Derrek Lee needs traded, to Mark DeRosa back to Derrek and his stats to what to do? I’m hoping the what to do Notes on a Scandal trailer conversation continues … even if your suggestion at this point is to “do nothing” I’m still interested in what everyone would do if they were the boss.

Have a great week!
