    It's ironic, because wasn't Mac's last at bat taken away from him by La Russa for a pinch hitter?

    It's also ironic because Mac was blaming macular degeneration as his reason for his hitting woes and retiring. Can't believe it would have gotten better over the last nine years unless there is some steroid that can reverse it. But that's not possible 'cause Mac isn't a 'roid guy.

    Let him bat.
    Hope his fragile little body can handle a fastball to the ribs.

    as a cubs fan, i laugh. i have respected la russa because he seems to have his team under control at all times. and now with mcgwire as the hitting coach it is turning into a drama that takes away from the actual team the cards have put together. not to mention that mcgwire sucked at hitting anyway, so hiring him as a hitting coach is just rediculous. but as a cubs fan, it's just funny.

    It is funny. I can't wait to see their hitters. Mac hit a homer or nothing. Not exactly expert hitting.

    Yes, since was giving Holliday hitting instructions last year.


    Cyclone
    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'
