Chit Chat

By the time the next GirlieView is published, summer will be more than half overwith and we’ll be past the All Star Break. What are a few things you’d like to see the Cubs do during the remainder of the season? “Be done with Ian Stewart” was on the top of my list so I’m a happy gal, and I know many are very happy that Marmol won’t be throwing any more games for us (literally and figuratively.) How about you? What’s on your Cubs to-do list?
