Prepare yourselves to get the crap beaten out of us again. Fortunately, the second half will be over sooner than the first half.
Marlon Byrd fukken Represented at the All Star Game. The Phrase "key walk" never really meant much to me until Byrd stepped to the plate on Tuesday. And the slick defensive play, gunning down Ortiz from right, well that was all sorts of yummy.
So now we have the Ted Lilly, Derrek Lee, Kosuke Fukudome, death watch. Their days wearing a Cubs uniform are numbered. Except probably Fukudone because nobody int he right mind would take him without (as Brian Hanley put it this morning) sending a Brinks truck along with him. If Jimmy can't swing anything for him by the deadline, then fine, cut him next May 1. He can slink back to Japan where apparently they're more forgiving.
I'd suggest for the rest of this year, we take the W off and just fly the White Flag after every game, win or lose.
