The vast majority of Cub blogs hate this move as well. BCB seems to be the only place that at least has some measure of support for this. Honestly, when Phil Rogers thinks what you are doing is pretty stupid you should stop right there and slowly back away. Save us Tom Ricketts, you're our only hope.
