Cubs and MLB news — balking at the expense, and other stories

Lou Piniella Press Conference Louuuuuuu

Sometimes my tongue is so far in my cheek that it comes out like the spring in a piece of crunchy frog. This may or may not be one of those times. The same wags that defined insanity say a picture is worth a thousand words.

My publisher has other ideas, but I digress. Several thousand words’ worth of baseball poetry below:

“It’s been written,” the fan continued, “that the definition of insanity is trying to do the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Yet we’re probably gonna have a very similar lineup this year to what we had last year. Can you articulate what we should expect differently and why we should get different results from that?”

Food for thought:
