SOMETIMES......

......the other guy just plays better. The Cubs didn't do anything stupid. They got outpitched and the notably clobber-footed and stonehanded Tony Clark had his body occupied for for about three hours by the spirit of Wes Parker or Keith Hernandez (pre-coke). Career minor leaguer Augie Ojeda suddenly invented flubber but that really didn't hurt anything. It would be alarming if the Cubs had played badly. They didn't. So it's still...first one to three wins....wins.

There's geniuses all over the internet saying that Lou pulled Z. too soon. The Stated Goal of the '07 Cubs is a World Series. Lou was doing what he thought best moved the Cubs to that goal. I can live with that.

A radio genius is saying this morning that Lou let Z. bat, then jerked him. He's wrong. Z. struck out to end the top of the 6th. He pitched the bottom of the sixth and then was told he wasn't going out for the 7th. It is just fatuous to say "You shouldn't have let him bat in the sixth, knowing he was only going one more inning!" Huh? I love Colin Cowherd but he was selling "facts" that didn't happen.

it's the damn want it all right NOW attitude.

year one of lou and we are post season .

I sleep fine with that . It's a move in the right direction.




So sick of the press & public "win right now " attitude.


Like St Nic Saban says ........


Winning is a PROCESS . It is not overnight , but following the process and executing ...will achieve the desired goals .



Cubs : Process ....and it is starting .

Surely you find this whole Rush vs The Democrat thing interesting on some level? Is is just too embarrassing to comment on. I mean come on. Durbin, Obama and Hillary sign this letter to Clear Channel?

1014,

I have to be intellectually honest here and say what I said before. It is trivial and unimportant what Rush The Entertainer and Seller of Soap said or didn't say about troops.

If that is true (and I hold to my earlier arguments), then I can't very well argue that it was smart for the dems to add gravitas to it by filing some kind of formal complaint.

I think there's a lot of stuff that's really important going on (see my post about SCHIP) and trivial crap like this just takes our eye off the ball.

"trivial crap like this just takes our eye off the ball"

I suspect that is the Dem's intent.

Fair enough. One last ?. Why do you suppose it is that talk radio from the left has never been successful?
