Mad Dog on Twitter?

If this is real, I can't wait.... "Hello Larry"...

Rick Telander's bad, bad column...

Really? Educated folks like Tom Ricketts and Theo Epstein caused the Wall Street meltdown, so they are the wrong people to turn around the Cubs? This is possibly the worst piece of garbage writing in the Sun-Times since that asshat Mariotti left.

A Not-So-Nice Slice Story

Gosh, I sure hope Giordano's doesn't go out of business...I sure love their pizza!

Paul Sullivan is a tool...or a bad reporter.

Tom Wilken...or is it Wilkens?...is the Cubs' scouting director? I believe this is called "mailing it in"...

Sosa supports Zambrano...

Of course he does...quitters always support quitters.

The 100 worst baseball players of all time

Highlights include Crazy Schmit, Neifi Perez, and Tuffy Rhodes. Lots of ex-Cubs on the list.

Cubs management continues to profess its love and reverence for Wrigley. But privately, the same group is making sure that people in baseball are well aware that it would take a massive infusion of dollars to keep Wrigley functional for much longer -- and even that might not be enough. "Honestly, I don't know if that place can survive for five years," said one of those baseball people. "The infrastructure is in brutal shape." Asked if Wrigley was even a candidate for a Fenway-style renovation, the same source replied: "To be honest? I'd have to say no way."

Kazmir released from Angels...

Very sad to see what started as a promising career end at 27. Angels eat a significant amount of money. This was a killer Rays trade from the hapless Mets back in the day and it definitely appears he was traded at the right time.

The Rise of Ronny Cedeno?

THIS is a what a truly jaded fanbase looks like, folks....

Opening Day 1955

Amazing how much hasn't changed. Including the fact that the mayor's name is still Daley.

It turns out that [the Cubs] attendance is the least sensitive to performance in all of baseball. The sensitivity of attendance-per-game to winning percentage for the Cubs is only 0.6...the league average is 1.0.... The Cubs despite their futility, are still the 5th most valuable team in MLB, according to Forbes, behind only the two New York teams, Boston and the Los Angeles Dodgers.... Attendance at Wrigley (Field) is actually more sensitive to beer prices---much more--- than it is to the Cubs winning percentage. ...In other words, Cubs fans will tolerate bad baseball and high ticket prices but draw the line at bad baseball and expensive beer. That makes for a fun day at the ballpark, but doesn’t give the ownership much incentive to reverse the culture of losing.

1915 Chicago Whales Jersey

Here's the link for the company... http://www.ebbets.com Pretty cool stuff...

Ralph Houk dead at 90

Recently mentioned in game recap and Lou HOF discussion that he was still alive...

Zambrano no longer "angry"

but reports indicate he is still perturbed.

Breaking up with the Cubs...

Same old, same old complaints, but interesting observation on the ticket prices and the empty seats. The tipping point may have been reached with the casual fans.
