As Opening Day is now upon us, Matt Peebles penned a poem in honor of America’s past-time.
Santo didn’t have the eye-popping numbers that elicit a Hall of Fame feeling. He had very good numbers, and he played a very good all-around game. But he’s suddenly in the Hall of Fame — because he’s dead.
WSCR The Score’s Matt Abbatacola joins Matt and Colin to discuss Theo Epstein, the Cubs managerial search and the organization moving forward. Matt and Colin also break down week 8 of the NFL and preview Bears vs. Eagles on Monday Night Football.
Billy Corgan said that the Cubs’ decision to decline interviewing Ryne Sandberg was “childish” and “a disservice to the Cubs legend.” Having to listen to your unfounded opinions, Billy, is a disservice to everyone else.
Tom Ricketts said, “I have every confidence that Theo [Epstein] will lead us to the championship Cubs fans so richly deserve.” I say, why do fans deserve a championship? Furthermore, why do fans deserve anything?
Over the last 103 years, the Chicago Cubs have enlisted plenty of people as “saviors.” Epstein is just the next man on the list. There is the good, but there is also the bad. Take off those sunglasses, Cub nation.
Since word spread nearly two weeks ago that Theo Epstein, the mastermind behind the 2004 and 2007 World Series champion Red Sox, was leaving Boston and heading to the Cubs as President of Baseball Operations, millions of words have been spoken, written, heard, posted, tweeted, etc. All of them in some form or fashion trumpeted Mr. Epstein as the new “savior” for the Cubs. I’m here today to tell my fellow Cubs fans to cool it. At least for a second.
