Things about Milton Bradley

Dear Milton Bradley:

Remember when I was at that game you threw the ball into the crowd with 2 outs? Yeah. I was mad… but I forgave you.

Remember when I was at that game where you dropped two balls in right field in one game, and struck out every time you were at the plate? Yeah. I was mad… but I forgave you.

Remember the entire month of June? And May? Oh, and April, too? Yeah. Forgiven.

With some trepidation, I rallied around you one more time when you swore you “were back 100%” in late July, and I proceeded to give you more chances, because, hell, you’re on the team I love, ergo, you are automatically a beneficiary of some of my hopeless but perpetual optimism.

Really. I’m a Cubs fan. I stick by my team through thick and thin. I suffer through pain and disappointment on a yearly basis. A lot of disappointment.  And I forgive. I don’t boo players on my team or the opponent’s, ‘cuz I think that’s asshatty.

But seriously? All that being said?

Get off my fucking team.

You are the worst parts of baseball all rolled into one.

Get off my team.

Get off my team.

Things about Sam Fuld 2

SEE???  Do you see how amazing Sam Fuld is yet?

No?  Well go check out his “Big Day” reel from yesterday.  His catch in left (well, the 2nd one) was #1 MLB play of the day and #1 webgem on ESPN for August 22nd.

Yup.

The only downside of this all is I’m afraid he’s going to hurt himself if he keeps running face-first into walls across all these MLB parks.  On the other hand… he’s the only one doing a damn thing in the Cubs outfield right now, so… keep on keepin’ on, Sam.

Things about the Cubs

I know that Baker is the hot bat everyone’s excited about lately, but I’ve only got two words:

Sam. Fuld.

I’ve been a fan of his for a while, but lately the kid is on fire.

He’s a smart player, is hot at the plate right now (although admitably is not a power hitter, he’s smart about watching pitches and placing hits), and his defense is better than anyone else in the Cubs outfield – evidenced once again by his game today.

Fuld Kisses the Ivy... again

Fuld Kisses the Ivy... again

The man is running into walls – again – to make the plays.  Cubs outfield hasn’t seen plays like this since… well, Sam Fuld.  The guy has heart.

Milton? Sori?  Be afraid. He’s better than you right now and deserves your salary.

(The fact that ESPN recently reported his love of math and sporcle.com may have increased my appreciation of him, but… c’mon. Dorky fantastic baseball player who plays his all every day? KEEP HIM.)

Dear Randy Wells

Randy Wells:

On behalf of all Cubs players and fans, I’m sorry.

I don’t really have anything left to say.

Oh, other than to say when you see Kevin Gregg in the locker room, if you have an urge to kick him in the dark void of his loins, don’t fight it.  If Aaron Heilman’s standing next to him, make it a twofer.

Keep on.

Love, Me


PS – You could also send a telegram to Kerry Wood with lots of X’s and O’s.  Well… I mean, it might not help, but it’ll probably make both of you feel better.
