Once again the Cubs showed why they are the WORST MANAGED, and WORST COACHED TEAM in the league.
For all those who feel that the Cubs are losing do to a lack of talent, I say this...better set aside a few minutes...
First, Runners in scoring position with less than 2 outs.
My God!...How long is it going to take before Dusty Baker realizes that the lineup he gives to the umpires is NOT MURDERERS ROW?...Last in Home Runs, near last in runs scored, and most definitly LAST in SACRAFICES..bunts sac flies..hitting the ball to the right side with runner in scoring position.Players don't do this, cause DUSTY DOESN'T practice his players to DO THIS!..WHY? WHY?..WHY?
Secondly, WHY do the Cubs have a BOATLOAD of leftys on the bench, and hardly a right handed hitter? WHY?...WHY?
Why does DUSTY continue to manage a 28-50 team like they are 50-28?...meaning why does Dusty NEVER play for the tie...BEFORE going for the victory...ONE RUN LOSES ARE TOTALLY DUSTYS FAULT!
Because he does not EVER sacrafice under ANY circumstances.
Speed kills...especially when NEVER USED!
Gene Clines (so called hitting coach).256 team B.A. obviously has never taught a single player how to advance a runner with less than 2 outs(Dustys Buddy).
Another DUSTYPAL is Larry Rothschild (Team E.R.A. 4.89) couldn't manage...hasn't shown a thing with young talent other than to give BAD ADVICE on trips to the mound!
GOD PLEASE give TRIB ownership some BALLS to end this nightmare!
FINALLY, I ask you this.
What has Dusty accomplished SOOOOO great that we Cubs fans argue continuously over his employment here in CUBSLAND?
Going to (1) world series?...and losing it?
getting within championships twice and blowing it with 5 outs to go?
HIS TEAMS FAILED RIGHT?
