Sad quotes. Sad score. Sad record. Sad Cubs.
Well, the good news is 2012 is almost over for the Chicago Cubs.
Probably I was one of about 47 people who watched last night's 2-8 Cub-drubbing by Arizona.
I mean, I watched but it was unwatchable.
I googled "Cubs tv ratings" and the newest article (the Sherman Report) is from August 31st.
It says White Sox games rule tv in Chicago (yada yada whatever dude), but worse is that the guy compared the 2008 numbers with this year's.
It's a drop of 62%.
In your basic world of tv, that "Cubs" show would get cancelled.
Now, I'm still totally for the Theo Plan, and the minors are seriously, truly, amazingly looking up (see Boise!).
But damn, if I'm Tom Ricketts I'm pretty worried about the family business.
Because it is bee ay dee.
The Jed Hoyer quotes about having money to spend on some free agents (pitching) for next year, that can't be a lie because the product at Wrigley Field has to improve.
A handful of 2-year Paul Maholm-types, a handful of Shawn Camps...
This 2012 season HAS to be the Cubs hitting rock bottom (isn't a hundred losses enough?), and next year the fans HAVE to see some kind of improvement.
Or who's gonna watch?
This is also sad: if everything aligns in my schedule, I'll be at Wrigley on Tues nite against the Astros.
That would be only game number three for me this year.
And I'm kind of a big fan.
Lately he hasn't looked like Ted Williams...
Bryant leads NL rookies in HRs (26), RBIs (99), 2B (31) and runs (86). Last rookie to reach 26 HR, 99 RBI, 31 2bs, 86 runs and 74 BBs?

Boston’s Ted Williams in 1939
Probably going to a bar/restaurant with TBS. Cord-cutting is so over-rated.
Thanks for the update on Underwood.
I'll take that omen instead...
"oh yeah, and get the fuck off my lawn. :D"
Ok, now that was funny. :)
Dodgers ahead 2-1.
96 wins with one game to go. Who woulda thunk it.
cubs win, pirates lose...
the curse is now yours.
cog a HR away from the cycle after a single in the 6th.
Hendricks: 15 up, 15 down.
