BREAKING: Phil’s still dumb

I spent yesterday actually writing about the Cubs…writing the Cubs season wrap up for our good friend Kevin Kaduk and the Big League Stew Blog at Yahoo! Sports.  And because of that, I had to halt the urge to rip a particularly awful (and that’s saying something) Phil Rogers shitfest. Hah!  Phil doesn’t get off that easily. Talking baseball while feeling Jay Cutler’s pain:  If you mean that both of you suffer from...

Phildo maps out the Cubs “fire sale”

On Tuesday morning, Phil Rogers went through the Cubs roster and mapped out who they could trade and why.  It was predictably terrible and demanded mocking.  It’s Friday and I’m just now getting around to it.  I needed to pace myself.

The offseason is a great time to be the fan of a bad baseball team.  You can delude yourself into anything.  Right now there are Cubs fans who are actually talking themselves into the idea that Tyler Colvin isn’t going to completely blow next year.  Offseason delusions are the best. Well, I let you have your little fantasies for a little while after the World Series.  But today’s the day you face the cold, hard, reality....

E-ramis has nowhere else to go

When the Cubs re-signed E-ramis Ramirez in the offseason after the wonderfully enjoyable final Dusty Baker year, it seemed like folly that they would give him a player option after the 2010 season.  Surely, E-ramis, one of the best third basemen in the game would at the very least exercise the option to get a new deal from the Cubs, if not to get the hell out of town. But yesterday, E-ramis let the deadline to opt out of his contract...
