    F-U-C-K. I would have

    as the pitching coaches, then to have Rothschild in that dugout one more game.

    Because they're the Cubs?

    Would the Yanks take a lame-arm Kerry Wood and some farm prospects? Do the Cubs even have farm prospects?

    If someone knows how to get back copies of the free Cubs program distributed outside Wrigley Field on game days and pokes fun at the Cubs throughout, email me. I was there over the summer and got so into the program I quit watching the game, enjoying the laugh.

    I dunno, seems to me Piniella is hitting the retread portion of his managerial career.

    Then again, people said the same about Torre when he went to the Yankees and that worked out just fine.

    So let me get this straight.

    Tribue, which owns the Cubs, is slashing jobs company-wide, but can afford to take on a salary like A-Rod's?


    You could pay 250 journalists $100,000 each with the same $25,000,000 a year that A-Rod makes.

    suburbia, thanks for mentioning that little ditty. Giants fans never forgave Dusty for handing that stiff the ball to start Game 7.

    Lazy, from what ESPN (TV) is saying that Lou wants to bring A-Rod here. But, can the Trib dish out ungodly amount of jack to bring this curse to Clark and Addison? I don't want A-Rod. The sumbitch may cost us a chance in the playoffs by just standing around with the black cat and the goat.

    Happens all the time. Madison Square Garden was firing real working people at the same time they were buying gifts for Patrick Ewing Night. Tell a single mother making $18,000 she doesn't fit in the budget, but spend $100,000 on a trinket for a multi-millionaire.

    Nobody ever said the world made sense.

    The Rangers are already paying the bulk of A-Rod's salary and I wouldn't be surprised if the Yanks pick up a portion as well just to get rid of him, regardless of where he goes.

    He could potentially not be the highest-paid Cub in terms of money the Trib actually spends on his salary.

    Where ever A-Rod goes, the Yanks would almost have to pick up a huge chunk of his remaining contract by default. The Cubs have a couple young power arms in their pen plus a decent hitting catcher in Jake Fox (24 y.o.) down at Double-A West Tenn. Include that with Aramis Ramirez and that's probably the best-case scenario for the Yankees, plus they're dealing out of the AL so any smidgen of a chance that he comes back to hurt them is gone.

    For ARod, the Cubbies would probably have to give up Felix Pie.

    Yeah, the Tigers hired a retread who already had won a World Series title as a manager and look how badly that turned out.
