    I'm glad I'm not a Cubs fan and I do not feel sorry for those that choose to be.

    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    They are unwatchable. Why do I follow the teams that I do...


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Most of this team needs to be dismantled. Start over is the best the Cubs can hope for.

    Re: Reds 12 Cubs 0

    Having never lived in Chicago, I guess I don't understand all the animosity toward the Cubs from other fanbases, especially when comparing Cubs fans to the Yanks or Red Sox. That being said, as a Cubs fan, I feel a lot of animosity toward Jim Hendry and the Cubs organization for signing a bunch of past-their-prime players to RIDICULOUS long-term contracts.

    I love D-Lee and A-Ram, but they aren't producing right now and I don't know if they ever will at their former levels again. When you add that to the problems with Big Z, Soriano (until this year), and Kosuke, you've got issues. It's time to let Castro, Colvin, Byrd, and some good farm team talent develop a bit as a team, and hopefully Lou retires after this year so the organization can get a new manager and start to move on.


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    Says the Iowa State fan


    From the Land of Sky Blue Waters,
    From the land of pines' lofty balsams,

    As a White Sox fan, I'll say it is simply due to their fanbase. Most of us like Lou, like guys like Derrek Lee, etc., but simply hate the Cubs fans.

    I'm a Cubs fan and I don't like the Cubs fans. Honestly, I grew up liking both the Cubs and the Sox, but people get too riled up one way or the other. At least with a college, it is always "your team." In pro sports, not as much.

    Well that statement truly is amusing coming from a White Sox fan.

    Unless something changes by season end, my guess is a lot of heads roll. The new owner will go to work.
