Looks like Cubs got bait and switched again

Remember a couple of Fridays ago when we were all excited that our big slugging rookie phenom third baseman was coming to the big leagues after a torturous 12 day wait? Oh, he came up alright and went hitless in five at bats and struck out three times. And but for a single here and a double there, what has he done really?

Phildo’s Power Wankings: The (not) putting Pujols into context edition

What caused the idiot horde to take their rage out for a spin yesterday?  Busty Olney reported the Cubs would listen to trade offers on Matt Garza. WELL HOLY SHIT MERLENE, GET THE PITCHFORKS AND TORCHES, WEEZE GONNA PAY THEO A LITTLE VISIT! A quick scan of the Cubs 40 man roster is a...

Phildo on Theo, Ryne and Albert

The best thing about the Cubs getting a new general manager is that we can all live through the countless, pointless, “Ryno deserves it!” posts about the Cubs managerial job.  Granted, there’s somebody in that job, but nobody has ever had any problem talking about Mike Quade like he’s not in the room. Mike Quade’s pediatrician: I’m sorry ma’am, your son’s going to be a smooth skinned,...
