Two idiots, no waiting

So, on Saturday, the Phillies fired folksy old Charlie Manuel and replaced him as manager with Ryne Sandberg.  Cubs fans had three reactions: That’s nice for Ryne. Who gives a shit? THE CUBS ARE SO STUPIDS! WHY DIDN’T THEY HIRE RYAN SANDBURG TO MANAGE THE TEAM, HE’D MAKE STARLIN CASTRO MAKE NO ERRORS OR ELSE! Two of our favorite deep thinkers, Chicago Tribune national baseball writer Phil Rogers and erstwhile Cubs...

Phil Rogers wants to do away with outdated things

Several times per week (hell, twice a day, sometimes) baseball dumbass Phil Rogers writes mind-numbingly dumb things that he deserves to be ridiculed for.  So just how dumb must something he writes be, to have him be completely self-aware about how dumb it is?

Back in May, when these two teams last hooked up, Phil declined to pick his awful annual (and prestigious) best of two team.  Surely nothing much has changed, right?...

Philo’s Power Wankings — Gotta watch that headhunting!

When last we left our beloved national baseball writing dumbass he was trying to figure out why Joe Maddon can’t just pick a lineup and use it, his boner was only partly flaccid over the Conor Gillaspie era in San Francisco (alas, Conor lasted only six days and hit a robust .150), and he just couldn’t figure out what was wrong with Luke Hochever (well, Luke sucks, that’s what’s wrong with him.)  What will Phil...
