« NFL Notes and Fantasy Nerdin' Out: Week 1 Molten Down »

Cubs Wed Sep 10 2008


There is little more satisfying to a baseball fan whose team is losing badly as a manager who tells it like it is. And I quote:

"We're not executing, we're making mistakes and we're getting beat. I'm getting tired of watching it, to be quite honest with you."

Cubs fans, who isn't tired of watching it? Again, I quote:

"We can talk about having fun, we can talk about relaxing. You've got to get your shirts rolled up and go out and kick somebody's ass!"

Ladies and gentlemen, Lou Piniella.
