I’m sorry to disappoint, but the Cubbies are trying to re-stake their claim to actually having a snowball’s chance in Chicago’s August. I’m not sure I’m willing to jump on board this time. I’m a – get ready for it – fair-weather Cub’s fan. Yeah. There. I said it. I don’t regret it.
Too many years of sorrow and managerial neglect. Not enough up’s to go with the down’s. And when they do blow an up, they find a poor ol’ Billy Scape Goat. Or a Bartman.
And if you think that the management’s little diplomacy trick this off-season of signing huge contracts would sate me: nope. Or the fact that they will be sold this next off-season. Again. Nope.
But since nothing else is happening now (no, Bears preseason doesn’t count)…
Wait, what do you mean he’s not on the team anymore?
