Sox today actually "out-storied" the cubs in todays Cub-Times,
but the Cubune made up for the Cub losing a "story" in the standings by putting out 5 for the flubbies. Interesting read in the Cub-Times today regarding the Sox bizarre decision to make ALL the seats in the maligned UD "box seats". I didnt necessarily agree with that decision. The writer laments the seat "naming" and will wait til Opening Day to come to a conclusion on the UD.
Also, More CUBPOGANDA by Mike Kiley, who has resorted to 3rd person reporting again. His "Kiley-ism" is in the very 2nd paragraph in which he states ..."Sosa, who helped revive interest in baseball with a record-setting home-run race with the St.Louis Cardinals Mark McGuire....." Again I say to you Mr Kiley....HE DIDNT SAVE BASEBALL. Ask the Pirates and Reds.
Ask Derrek Lee. Ask Aramis Ramirez. Ask Matt Clement.
Ask Michael Barrett. These are all guys that couldnt be "afforded" by their teams, only to have the Vulture Cubs swoop in and pick them up.....thru no scouting or other exhibition of talent other than to Open up a Wallet.
