“What’s Wrong with the Cubs?”

A member of the media asked this question of Tom Ricketts and he replied with, “Nothing. Just a lot of injuries. We’ll be fine.” And then he apparently ran for his life. I can’t imagine why. Those press folks are so congenial and snuggly!

Anyway, Tom’s hastily uttered words as he fled for the safety of somewhere else kicked off all kinds of commentary, all of it negative.

So I guess I’m the only one who thought it was a stupid question in the first place, huh?


First of all, it was unnecessary. Everyone already KNOWS what’s wrong with the CUbs. The press knows. They’ve been writing about it since spring training. More like January.

No, scratch that. They’ve been writing about it since they started writing about the Cubs.

Do you really need an answer to that useless question? Here, use mine:

The Cubs have a fragile defense which has been shattered by injuries; a promising pitching rotation tanked by injuries and under performance; and an offense that’s here today, gone tomorrow, back on Thursday, gone fishing Friday.

I think that sums things up nicely.

Secondly, to ask this question of Tom Ricketts and expect anything other than sunshine and Skittles shows that you haven’t been paying attention. I’m goign to assume that’s the case and that you’re not as stupid as people claim Tom Ricketts thinks you are.

We’ve experienced Tom for over a year now. He’s going to put a positive spin on everything. He’s going to build up the good and downplay the bad. He’s not going to suddenly turn into a Steinbrenner or a Wilpon. Why bother taken such issue with him acting like the Howdy Doody he’s always been?


Yeah. I'm not sure he even knows a curse word.

 Oh, that’s right.

Because you know exactly what’s wrong with the Cubs, but you want to hear him say it.

I hope you’re not holding your breath.
