Rest in Peace, Don Zimmer…and thank you for those few, fleeting moments for teaching the Cubs players and showing Cubs fans that we don’t have to accept being losers all the time.
Unrelated topic: WGN is dumping Cubs radio and well eventually end broadcasting Cubs/Sox/Bulls games. WGN/Trib Co was losing $6 mil a year since they sold the team to the Ricketts family. That’s what you get when you market a Major League Baseball team as “Loveable Losers”; eventually the losing stops being lovable (and expensive!). Another arrest by the Karma Police.
Noooo! The lovable losers need to keep losing so they can surpass Tampa Bay for the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft! All those top-five picks … we’ll be unstoppable! Then trade Samardzija and any other halfway decent player we have for prospects! Repeat cycle for next five years until Manny Ramirez is ready to replace Renteria as MLB manager. Yea!
