Cubs Cut Three
Muskat says club-jester Ed Campusano, porn star Rocky Roquet and bonus baby Andrew Cashner have been re-assigned to the currently non-existent minor league camp. Mitch Atkins and his 15.75 ERA remains. Jeff Stevens didn't do himself any favors today either.
I've been doing links for most of the week so no TCR Friday Notes, but I thought this excerpt about Milton Bradley and the media crush was worth mentioning from one of my favorite new Cubs blogs - Tales from Aisle 424.
...That will be preferable to having a daily Bradley Tantrum Watch that will only serve to antagonize the man:
Milton, you pissed yet? How about now? A little angry? Even a little?
Seriously? Everything is good and happy? You think you'll get pissed?
When do you think? Now? How about now? No? OK..... BOOOO!! How about
now? 'Cause if you don't get off to a good start, you'll be hearing
some of that from the bleachers. Ask Jacque Jones. Does that piss you
off? Hypothetically? Still all good? OK - see you tomorrow. Unless, you
know, you want to get something off your chest now. No? OK, then. You
should talk to Jacque though, he'll tell you. Maybe Corey Patterson.
They'll both tell you how it is. Want Todd Hundley's number too? I have
to tell you, you seem like you are a bit agitated. Is it because you're
hurt? You know, because you're always hurt? I know I'd be frustrated.
You know what helps with that? Talking it out. Just vent it all out.
No? Alright then. Hey! Oh, sorry... you just wanted to shake my hand. I
thought you were going to take a swing at me. You don't want to do
that, right? Yeah - my bad. Sorry. OK, this time I really have to go.
Here I go. Now. Nothing? Damn...."
