No more excuses for Cubs fans
In May when the Cubs were a mere seven games below .500, Cubs brass would constantly remind us how the Houston Astros had a similar record the previous season and still managed to make the playoffs. This was their way of telling us to not give up and that the season was not lost.
Well, now it's our turn to point to another team as an example. Instead of bemoaning all of the rookie pitchers and injuries as an excuse to this horrible season, I will point to the Florida Marlins who have more rookie pitchers than the Cubs, a $15 million dollar payroll and they also had a worse record than the Cubs had in May, yet they are near the .500 mark and fighting for a playoff spot.
The 2006 Cubs are an absolute disgrace and it is the result of a complete failure from the club president down. Please don't insult Cubs fans with any more lame excuses
