Lou unhappy with ESPN. (http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-070416cubsbits,1,2312414.story?coll=chi-sportstop-hed)

Memo to Lou: You yell on TV, you get on TV. Real simple. Not very sweet.

No joke. Pinella gets upset, that's just "Sweet ol' Lou doing his thing."

Ozzie gets upset, "Kenny Williams better get him under control."

Whatever. See the company that published the story and need I say more?

I've never understood the figure of speech, "someone wants his cake and eat it too." Who wouldn't want to eat their cake? What's the point of even having cake if you can't eat it too? I feel better now that I've gotten this off my chest. :smile:

I don't know, but Lou's not getting let off the hook here. :cool:Dennis Green managed to laugh about his meltdown later when he was an analyst on the NFL Network during the playoffs.
I don't know if Lou has the same sense of humor...

Thanks, Fuller. The expression should be, "you can't eat your cake, and then have it after it's eaten." With which I agree.

Fuller beat me to this. IIRC, the actual expression is, "you can't have your cake and eat it, too." Which is just a shorter way of saying what you said.

Anyway, re the Sweet Lou meltdown, did anyone seriously expect anything else?

Does anyone else think that meltdown was completely phony?

Yeah, that's because Ozzie is insane and tries to hit batters in retaliation. He is a huge jerk.:smile:

Hey dumb Scrub fans like BobApple or mshake, if you aren't the same person, GO POST SOMEWHERE ELSE. BTW, this is still "your year", right? MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Maybe, he's just throwing a fit because that's what fans and media types expect from him after a loss, so people can guy "Hey, at least the guy cares."
I, still think the guy took the job for the moolah. As much as he wants to win, I don't see the same hot tamale from his Reds, Mariners, and even Devil Rays days.
