Another Cubs game has passed. On Tuesday I’m about to fly to San Francisco, we’re going to see the Cubs and Giants on Thursday and Friday nights. Joe has done a great job of spicing up this site with some awesome trivia, man do I like a positive attitude! And that is Joe Aiello – despite some issues with the ballclub he’s testing my mind with some good trivia. Thanks pal!
This has not been an easy season insofar as watching Cubs baseball – I look forward to watching each Cub game like I do an upcoming sigmoidoscope examination. Milton Bradley at bats – will he do something stupid or will Cub fans boo him? Why won’t Piniella play Jake Fox now that Soriano is done? Why is Bobby Scales playing in LF, are they trying to develop his homerun power?
More important to me are decisions regarding Baker/Fontenot, Soto vs. some other catcher to be determined, will D Lee be extended, will Reid Johnson be back next year (methinks not,) will Micah be 25 manned or exposed to the draft and will Harden be brought back (IMO we should save money here and go with Gorzelanny.)
Paul Sullivan posted on the Cubs’ theatre of the macabre in today’s Tribune. Despite a very mediocre season the Cubs had some fun and toasted their rookies. I’m not opposed to this because there has to be some levity in a poor season. My suggestion to the Cubs’ brass and team is simple – look at the prospects the rest of the season. Look for issues to address in the off-season and address them. I’m confident that Hendry has the skills to do that and I’m confident that the new ownership team has his back.
