Got to love it when reporters are taking pot shots at your 8-4 team. Take a look at #5

No way attendance is in the 20's for tonight. Even with the crappy weather.

That matters to me about as much as a primordial slime mold in the bottom of the Marianas trench, underneath a rock.

In the red eye today the had to mention the fate of that idiot Wm. Ligue again. Great reporting Cub-une. Lets keep bring that idiot back into the spot light.

Rodriguez misses Esteban Loaiza entirely this season, a left-hander he has hit for a .522 average (12-for-23) with five home runs and 10 RBI.

Since when is Loaiza left handed?

I don't remember the wrigley hat thieves names being so public as our boy Billy Ligue.

I noticed this, and also noticed that even the Tribune counters this, saying there were at least 25K in pre-sales for each game.

This kind of stuff makes me sick. Anybody remember last year when the whole chicago media was making a huge deal of the Cubs vs. Yankees series? I understand that the yankees hadn't played at wrigley since the WS but I remember something in the Red Eye comparing Chicago vs. New York in areas such as food and environment. And Im thinking this to my self...THIS ISNT THE FIRST TIME THE YANKEES HAVE COME TO CHICAGO!!!!!!!

Its sad not one writer mentioned how the cub fans were acting when they were throwing cups on their own field on Saturday. If that would of happened it Comiskey, it probably would of gotten its own pull out section.

5. Hot ticket?

Only if the games were being played at Wrigley Field.

-Sun Times Sox Beat Writer Chris Deluca


Does anyone else get the vibe from Chris Deluca that he would rather be covering a certain team from the North Side? Actually, I get the feeling that he'd rather be covering ANYTHING than the White Sox. Deluca always seems to be quick to slam the Sox fans, attendance, team, etc. This isn't the first time he has made comments like this. He is the beat writer for the Sox, he shouldn't be this way.

Message to Chris Deluca:

Shut up about attendance and cover the damn team objectively!! Mike Kiley will retire one day and you'll be able to get your dream job.

You were exactly right Mickseter. According to ESPN (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/teams/schedule?team=chw) the attendance was 32,034.

Anyone expecting an article retracting the stupidity of the statement by Mr. De Luca any time soon?

While I have nothing to substantiate this claim, it seems that the Cubune while owning the Cubs tries to not look like they are outwardly rooting for them. It is more subversive and subtle. But the Cub-Times on the other hand seems to have their entire sports department loaded with blue bleeding, kool-ade drinking delusional Cubs fans who hate the Sox the way that we hate Cubs fans.

At least the Cubune has Phil Rogers who I think most of us can agree is objective and may even slightly slant twards the South Side. I can't even think of a Cub-Times writer who is even objective.
