According to Bruce Miles in today's Daily Herald, the Cubs are considering no longer flying the "L" flag to notify the El passengers and neighborhood if the Cubs lost. The assumption would be that no "W" flag means a loss. (What if it rains?)
I think this is goofy. To me, getting rid of just the "L" flag makes the "W" flag an unneeded gimmick.Should they have a "Nice try" or "Played hard" flag? I realize that I might not be in the majority, though, and want to know what others think.
