Weepy Lou & The Whiny Bitch

You would have thought Lou Piniella led the Cubs to back-to-back world series titles they way he was sent off by the Wrigley Field stupid.
Cubs fans never cease to amaze me. Whether it’s still packing Wrigley everyday, still throwing visiting teams home run balls back onto the field, cheering Mark DeRosa upon his return as if he was Ryne Sandberg, or how the drunk fools in the bleachers still think it’s cool to act like a fool—those are just a few, I could go all day on the new age Cub fan. Seeing Lou Piniella cry before his last game was sad, as was his emotional post-game press conference. For a second, I felt bad for him. I know his mother is sick, so I wanted to understand his decision to walkaway now. Then I thought about it. This is the same guy who openly quit on the Rays when things weren’t going well. This is the same guy who only came to the Cubs knowing they were going to spend a ridiculous amount of money($300 million on horrendous contracts before the ‘07 season), threw a premeditated tantrum two days after the Zambrano-Barrett divas match, pulled Zambrano in game 1 vs Arizona in ‘07 while wanting to save him for game 4 or 5, inserted Kosuke Fukudome in the 2-hole in the Dodgers series in ‘08, emotionally quit after game 3 of that series, mentally quit 6 weeks into the ‘09 season, continued to ask….”what do you want me to do?”, berated a reporter asking him a question….”what the hell kind of baseball do you play?!, and came back this season to ensure he collected that extra $4 million dollars. I’m sure he needed the money, considering he’s been collecting baseball checks for 46 years.
Why everyone is hailing this guy like he won 2 world series titles for the Cubs is tougher for me to grasp than why Lovie Smith still runs his stale pathetic defense. His tenure in Chicago was one thing, a failure. I’ve heard enough of “the first Cubs manager to lead the Cubs to back-to-back division titles” garbage. Lou was brought here to win the world series. That’s it. The money was spent, and it was on him to deliver a championship while he collected that $3-$4 million each year. It didn’t happen. What happened to Piniella was what happens to all managers that take the job at Clark and Addison…they get Cubbed. It happened to Don Baylor and Dusty Baker before him, and I’m sure it will happen to the next sap who takes the gig(think twice Joe Girardi). If Cubs fans wanted to show their appreciation for Lou, they should have walked out of Wrigley prior to his farewell and said f*ck it because that’s what he’s doing. If the Cubs were in the hunt or in 1st place right now, do you think he’d be going to help his ailing mother? No chance. He openly quit on his team, the idiot fans who cheered him, and an organization that paid him handsomely.
The only thing dumber was the Cubs insistence that he stick around the last three months. It was obvious, early on this season, that Lou had thrown in the towel that Rocky should have thrown in during the Apollo Creed- Ivan Drago fight. And, you thought an ownership switch would change the culture of that horse shit franchise. Shame on you–and shame on Piniella for coming back this year when he knew he was finished. However you remember Lou, just know he quit on his team, and his tenure was nothing more than a typical Cubs failure.
Speaking of failures, I’ve been doing this blog for ten months and have yet to rip into White Sox douche lord-announcer Hawk Harrelson. Hawk has finally lost his mind. Look, I don’t hate the White Sox. I treat them like that annoying cousin that you have to deal with every once in a while. They’re there and you deal with them on holidays. It’s a shame Harrelson has made me unable to enjoy a White Sox game. That’s what it has come to. The mute button is nearly worn out on my remote anytime I have them on. Why do I watch? Because I love listening to Steve Stone talk baseball. What I don’t love is that dumb hillbilly, blaming umps, calling other teams hits “duck snorts”, saying the Twins got some “gift home runs” or “cheap runs”, and bitching about balls and strikes from 6 innings ago. I know Jerry Reinsdorf is loyal, but Jesus, he has to know how bad his play by play announcer is. I’m willing to bet anything that Stone was hired with the hope of easing Hawk away from the homer juice. You know, just call a game, engage in good baseball conversation with the game’s best analyst, and put the focus where it should be….the game. It worked for a while, but those evil umpires brought the penis back out of the worst announcer in baseball.
I’d love to ask this ass-clown when he thinks the umps conspire to screw the Sox? Do they hold secret meetings in hotels and plot out a strategy to make sure the Sox lose? It’s asinine, and a good portion of White Sox fans love this fool. I don’t get it. There isn’t another announcer in the league who is as obnoxious as he is. His true self came out over the weekend when Stone wasn’t in the booth. The constant bitching hasn’t sat well with Stone, and it shouldn’t. You know what the best part of a Sox game is? The dead air when the Sox are losing. For those several seconds at a time when you hope that Hawk passed out, walked out of the booth, or was abruptly fired for being the babbling asshole he is. I don’t mind if the Sox make the playoffs because I know I’ll be able to watch a quality team without having to listen to old Carl Yastrzemski stories. If you only knew what I would give to have Reinsdorf fire the dumb hick by saying “he gone.” If you like Hawk Harrelson, there is a 98% chance I would never have a beer or hangout with you. He is a baseball imbecyl and the biggest blemish on the White Sox organization. Now, if only the Cubs could get rid of their biggest blemish(Jim Hendry), we might just be onto something.
