Cubs turn out to be ... the Cubs
How inappropriate that on the day that Cubs lose their fourth straight, and are all but eliminated from the Wild Card, post this on their site. This was their top headline prior to the loss.
This year's Cubs is considered to one of the most dislikable. They have turned from the lovable losers into just... the losers. The big story today is how Cubs manager Dusty Baker and Cubs management are all upset with critical comments made by Cubs' color analyst Steve Stone. Stone made comments yesterday about how the Cubs did themselves in. This turns into such a media firestorm that Stone had to meet with Cubs GM Andy McPhail prior to today's broadcast. The team is on the edge of falling out of playoff contention and their biggest concern is whether their analyst is too critical? What a sad team they are.
