The Venting Room - Blow off Your Trade Deadline Inactivity Frustration Here


This is the place - the place to post your best rants about the fact that Tom Ricketts and Jim Hendry seem to be completely unable or unwilling to accept that the 2011 Cubs are a terrible team and that it would be in the best long term interest of the Cubs and their fans that significant trades be made to build for the future.

As the hours click down to the deadline, as you click refresh on the MLB Trade Rumors site, stare at Phil Rogers' story with your head in your hands, sobbing, and go off to get that fourth midday beer, just remember to post your rants here. We may be screwed as fans, but there's no reason we can't share each other's pain.

And for those few remaining optimists, ranging from "glass half full" to "Pollyanna", please understand that this probably isn't the right place for you. This is for bitter, angry ranting. This is for frustration. We aren't looking to change anyone's minds here. If you want to be optimistic somewhere, you can create a room for that. Thanks for understanding and have a day.
