Chicago Cubs suck
! So how bad did the chicago cubs suck in 2013? They did make a 5 game improvement to their record, going 66-96 for the season. They did manage to ship off bad contracts during the season, making the roster look like a minor league team. Their two future cornerstone players Marlin Castro and Anthony Rizzo could not hit above .250 and had a combined 33 HR’s. All of this led to the firing of manger Dale Sveum who will join the long list of failed Cub managers. As much as Cub fans would like to believe the Ricketts family was going to turn things around the only thing they seem interested in is improving the largest single’s bar in Chicago.
They have recently hired the San Diego bench coach Rick Renteria as their new manager. I don’t know for the life of me why anyone would want to ruin their careers by working as a Cub manager. I have to believe looking at Epstein’s track record so far with the Cubs that this move will make no significant improvement to team that has lost 200 games in the last 2 years. Boston’s World Series win in 2013 was proof that Epstein inherited most of the key players in his 2 championships he watched over during his Boston years and has absolutely no similar players on the cub roster to make him look like a “genius”. Heading into the 2013 season the Cubs had some promising young players…all of which failed to produce during the season. Their is little reason to believe the 2014 season will be any better for the Cubs unless Epstein can pull off a miracle during the off season. What I find astounding is the Cub team is the top 5 grossing teams in the MLB. This demonstrates that Cub fans remain an enigma and will still believe this is a team worth watching. It’s hard to even consider Cub fans as true baseball fans since they are just not able to come to terms with the fact the
Chicago Cubs suck
. I will again predict that the Cubs will lose fans in 2014 because even through their Kool-aid induced stupors they will begin to doubt the boy genius. When will they ever learn that the Cubs simply won’t win another World Series so long as they play in the cursed Wrigley Field, the biggest single’s bar in the world.
As I predicted before the beginning of the season the lost of AJ and the moves Rick Hahn made led to disastrous season for the South Siders as well. Could there ever have been a worst season for Chicago baseball? The White Sox are not quite as bad off as their North-side rivals as they have a better than average pitching staff, but their offense needs a serious overall. The question that remains is can Rick Hahn deliver the goods? The White Sox seem light years behind the Tigers and the much improved Indians and Royals within their division. It is again likely the Cubs and Sox will battle for the right to claim worse team in baseball. One thing for certain is the fact that even Cub fans will end up agreeing the Chicago Cubs suck.
Now I created this website for Cub’s fans that are tired of ‘wait ‘til next year’ and want to vent their anger. This site is also for all the White Sox fans who know their team is consistently better but never seems to get credit for it in the media. And for all those recently converted Cub fans who couldn’t take it anymore. And let’s not forget our Cardinal, Brewers, and Reds fans that have had to put up with the ‘Cub Nation’ for far too long.
It is my intention to continue the stimulating conversation that has been thriving for over 100 years in Chicago about its baseball teams. I encourage everyone to leave their comments so we can all share in the conversation. As the moderator for all the comments I will not tolerate stupid, nonsensical dribble. Well, maybe just a little. Try to limit any foul language, as children may be visiting this site.
I will not apologize for the fact the
Chicago Cubs suck
. There are so many reasons for this and I will share some of these on future posts.
I will share some of the great Wrigley Field history (thank god for the Bears) and some of the more ridiculous excuses (Steve Bartman incident to name one) Cub fans have used throughout the years.
