This team isn't the 07 Rockies, or 04 BoSox. These are the underacheiving, overpaid 2009 Chicago Cubs. Face it hopefuls, we're just not good enough. I gave up after Gregg and co blew it against the Fathers last Monday.
I can't wait unitl the Cutler era officially begins in September, and when pitchers and catchers report next February.
I am somewhat happy that the Deal is finally going to get done and by Opening Day 2010, we will have The Ricketts as new owners. Anything is better than the Zell-bune. Hopefully, the Ricketts will somewhat clean house and we'll see more younger talent, and less overpaid, underacheiving veterans.
I just can't see how any logical fan can believe that the Cubs will all of sudden get magically hot and catch up with either the Cardinals or Rockies. This team keeps showing us its true colors. Most of the players gave up, along with Lou. Please enlighten me with your reason why some of you continue to believe.
