Headline in today's Cubune (could not locate it online, but was in the paper itself):
Wood blames Stone for '04 discord

These guys need to get over themselves. Really.

That is really just weak. The players should be blamed first for paying attention to what announcers say while on the air, and Dusty should be blamed second for not telling them to stop whining about it and for being an enabler.

I have a feeling that whoever the hell it is broadcasting Cubs' games this year has been told to keep criticism to an absolute minimum so as not to ruin everything.

That is hilarious. Will the media begin to blame itself next? This reminds me of a famous painting: Goya's Procession of Flagellants (http://www.abcgallery.com/G/goya/goya62.html).

"Forgive us Cubbies! We are to blame for sowing discord!" :rolling:

And here's your history lesson for the day: Flagellants (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06089c.htm)

Nice to see the Cubbies concentrating on baseball. Yeah, it's Stone's fault that the Cubs went 2-7 vs. the Reds, Mets, and whatever other **** team they played at the end of last year. He gave up those 30 doubles to Austin Kearns that final homestand. I look at this as a positive: Tools such as Wood, Baker, Prior, or whoever don't seem to want to learn from their mistakes, thereby, never correcting them. I've heard of 5-star players, well, the Cubs are a 26 tool team (the roster + Baker).
