Unconditional Faith in Theo Must Endure

So, the lineup that needs NO introduction, because, even if I introduced it, nobody would care….your 2012 Chicago Cubs! DeJesus RF, Barney 2B, Castro SS, LaHair 1B, Soriano LF, Stewart 3B, Byrd CF, Soto C, Dempster P. A 22 year old third hitter, a Quadruple A poster boy, a miserable, godforesaken contract, a rookie-of-the-year who... Read more »

Quade out; Ryno removed from consideration, yet period of unconditional Theo support continues

Theo flew down to Florida to personally fire Mike Quade today.  Then he stated that the new Cubs manager must have “managing or coaching experience at the big-league level”.  Sorry, Ryno.  I guess this is just not your organization.  Apparently, and this was confirmed by more knowledgeable observers at yesterday’s press conference, Theo has someone...

Now, Cubs fans, let's bring in the Ryno!

Now, Cubs fans, let's bring in the Ryno!
It appears that Ricketts has done it…he has brought in a Theo Epstein-esque figure.  It happens to be Theo his own bad self.  Kurt is right.  Bringing in Dusty Baker when we did was big.  Soriano was big.  Piniella was big.  This is big-cubed.  Get yourself to your local college, and learn some basic statistics,...

The 2011 Cubs - Insubordination, Disconnection, and the Pursuit of False Goals

The 2011 Cubs - Insubordination, Disconnection, and the Pursuit of False Goals
So, Cubs fans, here’s where it has come to.  The 2011 season, boiled down to its “simplest” form in one play.  Of course, nothing is simple, not when it involves 25 players, a front office, 162 games, 3 million attendees and many more millions of fans throughout the world, and 103 years since the last...

We listen to Cubs related banter on the radio, so you don't have to

Over the past few days, I have had the opportunity to listen to tons of Chicago sports radio, nearly all of which are concerned with the upcoming Cubs/Sox series.  Of that, most of it has devolved into comparisons between the good-pitch/no-hit Sox being torn apart by the constant bickering between their manager and Gm, and...

Ricketts broke the cardinal rule of General Managers

Z is right; couldn’t be more right, and Quade is weak. This weekend has absolutely left me shell-shocked, and I am sure I am not alone, huh? Marmol has blown two wins in the past week.  The Cubs could have certainly used either win, if not both.  Zambrano had something to say about it today,... Read more »

Cubs Manager Mike Quade is really pissing me off

Several of you may recall the long-awaited unveiling of the “Cubs are dead” post. In it, I categorically stated my wishes for the Cubs to sit all the old, feeble, expensive and expiring contracts, raid the farms, and start evaluating our prospects under live fire.  The organization needs to know what we have to build...

Monday Morning News-Blitz

The Cubs split a weekend series with the Giants, thanks in large part to the rain on Sunday. I highly doubt the Cubs were going to beat Tim Linecum, but I guess stranger things have happened. As always, lets look around the newspaper/online world to see what our favorite writers are staying about the Cubs.... Read more »

Mike Quade Speaks His Mind on Carlos Silva

  It was a busy weekend for the family, and myself as I got ready for two auction drafts this week. I did stumble accross the fact that the Cubs let Carlos Silva get a jump start on spending his paycheck. Well, the news spread and Silva took a couple shots at the Cubs pitching... Read more »

I for one am not diggin' the way Mike Quade is handling his team

I for one am not diggin' the way Mike Quade is handling his team
14 errors in four games.  A churlish fatass has all winter long to consider how to get guys out, and in his first opportunity gives up two long bombs and six runs in the first inning, and has the temerity to go back to the dugout and bitch about it?  In four games, the Cubs... Read more »
