Leading Off

The Ron Santo statue was unveiled before Wednesday’s game against the Nationals.  This is the fourth statue outside of Wrigley, with the others being Harry Caray, Ernie Banks and Billy Williams.  Who should be the next Cub to be honored with a statue?

Buy or Sell?

  1. Buy or Sell that Santo will finally be inducted into Cooperstown next summer.
  2. Dusty Baker said this weekend that Mike Quade deserves more of a chance.  He said that it seems like Cubs fans always want whoever is there to be fired.  Buy or Sell Baker’s point?
  3. The Cubs seven game winning streak makes you optimistic about next season.  (Buy or Sell?)
  4. This is the first time that we’ve done a show since the trade deadline, so are you buying or selling the Kosuke trade as a good move?  What letter grade would you give Hendry’s deadline?
  5. Tony Campana’s inside-the-park home run electrified the crowd last week.  Buy or Sell his chances of being an everyday starter at the big league level.

  1. Ron Santo was a _______ person.
  2. The fact that Ronnie was not inducted into the HOF before his death is ________.
  3. Santo’s broadcasting was ________.

    Dusty Baker said this weekend that Mike Quade deserves more of a chance. He said that it seems like Cubs fans always want whoever is there to be fired. Buy or Sell Baker’s point? SELL, BAKER IS AN IDIOT.
    The Cubs seven game winning streak makes you optimistic about next season. (Buy or Sell?) SELL,SELL,SELL
    This is the first time that we’ve done a show since the trade deadline, so are you buying or selling the Kosuke trade as a good move? What letter grade would you give Hendry’s deadline? SELL, SINCE WE ARE PAYING HIM NOT TO PLAY FOR US and HENDRY GETS A BIG FAT ‘F,’ mainly because JEFF FREAKING BAKER WAS AN UNTOUCHABLE.
    Tony Campana’s inside-the-park home run electrified the crowd last week. Buy or Sell his chances of being an everyday starter at the big league level. SELL on DOUG DASCENZO JR

    What’s the Word?

    Ron Santo was a PASSIONATE person.
    The fact that Ronnie was not inducted into the HOF before his death is UTTER BULLS–T.
    Santo’s broadcasting was ENTERTAINING.
    The fire that Mike Quade has shown this season, being ejected from five games, is GOING THRU THE EMOTIONS TRYING TO DEPICT SOMETHING HE IS NOT.

    Thanks guys. Brandon deserves the majority of the credit. He thinks up the talking points, and he keeps the ball rolling.

    Joe, we need you back next time. With a 3rd fewer hosts, I’m at least 30% more prone to ramble.
