Default Baker Slams Media / Cub Fans

I'm shocked this hasn't appeared on the web site yet!

In the internet edition of today's Sun Times, Dusty Baker says part of the reason for the Cubs losing record at home is because of the "negativity among the media and certain fans..." He lists other reasons and goes into details about his media, fan comments.

LOL

Now THAT'S funny especially considering we're heard that before at lenght here on the South Side from the Sox organization!

I suggest taking a look at the story.

Only his race allows him the slack he continues to get for the moronic things he says.

It took until the 2000 playoffs before Dusty was paranoid about media criticism in SF, but it only took half a season for it to get to him in Chicago. Guess the honeymoon's over.

Here's the link: http://www.suntimes.com/output/cubs/...t-kiley28.html

Seems that Dusty's a bit surprised that Cub fans are expressing negativity at their .500 play so far...welcome to reality, Dusty.

Geez, more cubbie excuses from Dusty. He certainly is a quick study in the blame game. Can you imagine all the conspiracy theory conversations and whining sessions that he and Barry Bonds must have had back in SF?

Default Kiley+Ink= Cub Apologist

Mike Kiley performed yet another act of Journalistic Presumptuousness today, reacting to a feisty and sharp remark by the Messiah Mark Prior on the many questions hes gotten regarding his health and missing a few starts. "Thats all Im talking about this til I get into a game!" said the Arrogant One.
Kiley, prefaced this by then saying that "Priors competitiveness is being shown now off the field". Kiley, thats not "competitiveness, thats called a Jerk". When Thomas makes crass remarks like that, the Media Calls him a Whiner. When Prior makes the same comment....hes Competitive. What
a bunch of BS. dont worry Kiley, were on to you....

Kiley, ever the Cub Apologist, also noted in todays column on his own, that the Cubs are saddled with a poor schedule, having to
Endure countless day games after nite games. Again...what a bunch of bs. Does it sound like the Flim Flam man himself DBaker is just angling for more NITE GAMES on the Tribs behalf? Kiley himself, a SUNTIMES "Writer", is helping the Trib out. Id almost believe him, if not for the Fact that the VISITING TEAM ALSO HAS TO WAKE UP EARLY TO PLAY IN THE SUN TOO. sorry Dusty...
im not falling for this "Cub-poganda". All this tells me is the Cubs are about to mount another Campaign shortly to get more nite games and this was simply a front to "soften the targets".
Has anyone reminded mr. Kiley that hes a beat writer, and NOT A COLUMNIST ?? KILEY....stop believing the excuses...because tomorrow every cub fans going to say....."yeah.....its unfair we have all these nite games"

Is Dusty still wondering "Why not us?." Why don't you ask Lee Ellia. Ha ha.

"Part of [the disappointing home record] is scheduling,'' Baker said. "You come home late from a trip someplace and we got to play the next day. [St. Louis and Houston] come home and get some rest. I believe that. We play a lot more day games. But you got to find a way. It ain't going to change. We got to find a way to combat it. You try to do it with different lineups and you rest guys."
Hey Dusty, doesn't every single visiting team that you face at Wrigley also have to deal with this same thing? When St. Louis or Houston come to town, they also get in late & have to get up the next day for a day game! Boo frickin' hoo! What's your next excuse?

Kiley was at it again today...saying Dusty 'willed' the Giants to the playoffs last year. Uh no...I think it is called having Barry Bonds on your team.

Theres a Difference between being a BEAT WRITER and being employed by the Chicago Cubs media dept. Does anyone know what that is? Kiley has crossed the line many many times, putting his own thoughts, wishes, hopes, dreams into his stories about this team. Unfortuneately, we know cub fans to be sheep and believe everything they read. Now, all cub fans will say that Dusty can WILL A TEAM TO WIN. what a bunch of bs.
We need a Reporter to REPORT ON THE STORY, not try to twist statements, fudge actions by certain arrogant players. This guy would do great to work for State Run Newspapers. Can you see Mike Kiley, foreign sports correspondent for Al Jazeera ?
