    Blasphemy! Surely you know that you are only allowed to post about the Cubs and White Sox on this board.

    I see they danced around the steroids issue with him - you have to be Stevie Wonder not to notice how much smaller he's been the last couple of years...

    I don't see that he's gotten any smaller at all. He has always been "stocky" and I think he still is. I also disagree about the "dancing around the steroids issue". The article said he had never tested positive for steroids and was not mentioned in the Mitchell Report. He denied using steroids to the interviewer and said he would never use them because it would be "stupid" and make his family embarrassed.

    GO CYCLONES!!!

    Re: Good Pujols Article

    I think the only ones that are still accusing Pujols of 'roiding up are bitter Cubs fans that can only wish they had someone as talented as Pujols playing for them...

    why would cubs fans be bitter about winning the central the last two years (and a third this year)?? I am a cub fan and am not bitter about pujols at all. He is a great player.

    Re: Good Pujols Article

    A great Pujols article was written earlier this month in Sports Illustrated (it was the cover story). It covered extensively the steriod issue and tried very hard to show those in the public he has not and will not, especially concerning his religious beliefs, take steriods.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Keep thinking that. Cardinal fans wish their team had the Cubs pitching staff.

    A. I didn't say ALL Cubs fans, I said "bitter Cubs fans" - that only implies some.

    B. When was the last time the Cardinals won the World Series? 2006? When was the last time the Cubs won it? When was the last time they were even there? That's enough to make a lot of people drunk on Old Style quite bitter...

    Who are they again? The only reason why the Cubs win the division this year is because the rest of the division is that pathetic...

    I do not. Yes, the Cubs do have a better pitching staff. Yes, the Cubs are the clearly the better all-around team right now, and have been for the last couple years.

    However, the Cards have won 10 World Series since the last time the Cubs have even been there. I am in no way jealous of the Cubs.

    Why, you could be a member of the mainstream media! Also, Old Style is disgusting, but I'll still be drinking one this year - for the home opener.

    Please - everyone knows it was 1908 and 1945, resepectively.

    To make this sound even more pathetic, of the 14 teams that have entered the league since the Cubs last MADE the world series, 11 of them have made the World Series since the Cubs have last been there. Hell, 6 of them have WON the World Series since the Cubs have last been there - some of them multiple times...
