Been There, Done That.

Hello Everybody,

 

This is my first post to this blog. Sadly, I am in a negative frame of mind about our Cubs. You see, I am sixty-three years old and I am experiencing deja vu all over again. I have seen this all before. Tom Ricketts says he wants to bring in somebody new, somebody who has fresh perspectives on the situation. Well, I have a tip for Mr. Ricketts - MLB is a small community and everybody knows everybody. Not only that but everybody already knows the problems that everybody else has. As if that were not bad enough,  there is isn't anybody out there who knows anything that baseball's community doesn't already know. In other words, what good would a new General Manager do?  Dallas Green and the new tradition were supposed to be the answer. He wasn't. Andy McPhail was supposed to be the answer. He wasn't. Larry Himes was supposed to bring new ideas and a fresh perspective to the familiar problem in the Cubs organization. He didn't.  Back in the day Leo Durocher was supposed to the answer. He wasn't.  Then we have Herman Franks, who ascended to the mountaintop and proclaimed: " There is something wrong here, and I am going to find out what it is and fix it." Even if he found anything he did not fix it. Of course he was not around long anyway. In other words, the Cubs are going to start over, and for what? I wonder what it would be like to watch the Cubs in the World Series?
