    Gary Matthews Jr. and Nomar for sucking while they were in Chicago and making the all-star team this year. I cannot fucking believe GMJR made the all-star team. Just cannot fucking believe it.

    I can only blame Wrigley Field. If that team played anywhere else, there would be 200 people in the stands. Instead, they sell out every game, rain or shine. What's the deep motivation to sell or change or win?

    I've been saying this for a few years now. When you market the "Wrigley Experience" it shows you don't give a shit about the product on the field.

    They also managed to spend $95 million on a team that's going to lose 100 games now that The Village Idiot gets to finish out the season.

    Don't forget Barry Larkin, who blew out his shoulder in '88 during a fielding competiton. Missed the rest of the season, and the Reds post-season chances went down the drain.

    The Fosse and Dean injuries happened in the actual game. I think the Larkin injury is more comparable. Kinda like the guy who blew his knee out playing flag football at the Pro Bowl.

    That to me is one of the most shocking events of the season. He was a guy who couldn't put together two straight good seasons and seemed to have swing issues. Now, at 32 (almost) and after playing for six teams, he's having a career year. Hmmm, it's also a contract year. Will be interesting to see if he maintains this next year. He certainly can play some defense (that catch against the Astros was one of the best I've ever seen, anywhere).

    Isn't there a sign in most ballparks that reads: "NO FUNGO"?

    Edwards didn't just tear knee ligaments, it was the equivalent of a small bomb detonating in the joint.
