The Big News is that he says the Cubs are seriously annoyed with Ryan Theriot holding out for $3.4 million. So pissed off they may try to trade him or even non-tender him when the season is over. Bruce said he's sure the Cubs will go to arbitration this year ( unless RT backs down of course )
That's just fucking dumb. A couple hundred grand means nothing. Sounds like typical Cubs management strategy.
Most fans like Theriot (he's white and dumb like them), management thinks they might trade/release him since
they hope to have a replacement so they start the stupid character assassination. First they'll act like he's greedy,
then there will be some leak about him supposedly not showing up in as good of shape or some shit, then there
will be a leak about him having some kind of bad attitude.
It's all just because the Cubs spend so much type hyping mediocre to average players to the fans that they have
to find some way to try and get rid of them without admitting how they were lying through their teeth.
