Listening to the Mulligan & Hanley on our flagship station, & what are they talking about? Yes you guessed it the Flubs & Cuban buying the team. A caller is going on blah blah blah & the onlt reason he goes to Flub games is "to get drunk and look at the girls" Beautiful!!!!!

Yeah, winning is boring -- the way having a couple of million dollars in the bank is boring, the way driving a really primo car is boring, the way not having to worry about losing your job is boring. Who wouldn't prefer to be dead broke, driving a '96 Escort, and working at McDonalds?

Watching the Sox whomp the Indians yesterday was SO boring, I'm hoping they do it again tonight.

I heard that guy too. What an ass. His last comment on how "when they get Wood and Prior back next year, they'll be set" sounded like one of us making fun of the idiots that populate that urinal. The guy flat out admitted he only went there to get drunk and "check out the hot chicks". Also, where in the hell did all this Mark Cuban pipedream garbage about him buying the team come from ? I think I'll start one of those rumors too....Hey, did you hear that Michael Clark Duncan wants to buy the White Sox ? He's a huge Sox fan ! This will be awesome !!!!

Mark Cuban is an admitted Pirates fan, so I don't see why he would be particularly interested in buying the Cubs. Given his business acumen, I could see him buying the Pirates "on the cheap" and reaping the benefits of turning that franchise around (in the form of increased tickets and merchandise sales and TV revenues), kind of like he did with the Mavericks.

On the other hand, what possible upside do the Cubs offer? The Tribune has already maxed out the profit stream from the Cubs, to the point that they shamelessly and openly scalp their own tickets. They already sell out all of their games and have the second or third highest ticket prices in MLB. Most importantly, given the Tribune's current financial situation, you can bet that they would be looking to squeeze every last dollar out of a potential buyer, who would inherit (i) a massive payroll with little actual talent to justify the costs (ii) and even greater expectations from a near-suicidal fan base.

If I am Cuban, I wouldn't touch the Cubs with a ten-foot pole.

Wasn't he turned down by MLB when he tried to buy the Pirates? Why would MLB let him buy the Cubs and not the Pirates?

I sure have a hard time keeping awake seeing the Sox come back from getting 6 runs scored on them in the first inning or Ozuna placing a winning bunt in the ninth. That takes intelligence to talk about. So much easier for someone with no baseball knowledge to talk about firing Dusty.

I'm getting really tired of all the Cubs talk on both stations. The only reason they bring up the Sox is to show how bad the Cubs are by comparison. The first couple weeks of this were entertaining. Lord knows I love a good Cub-bashing session. But at this point it's just annoying. The Cubs are bad. What's new? How about talking about the defending World Champions, who have the second-best record in baseball. Just for half the time, at least.
