Ok, Dusty, So Does THAT Mean...
« on: October 01, 2005, 10:35:42 pm »
Baker had said that the only thing his team was scrapping and playing hard for was a .500 record.

Well, you can kiss that goodbye.  Best they can do now is 2 games under.  

Soooooooo..........

Does that mean the regulars will play tomorrow?  How long will Maddux go?

Dusty is a piece of shit. He might talk the talk about not wanting to be a spoiler, but deep down he'd like nothing better.
Oye. Vamos, vamos.

Wanting your team to play hard and win makes you a piece of shit?
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

No, of course not, if so, by proxy, all fans must be pieces of shit. My question is, does managing the Cubs make you a piece of shit?
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Interesting question.  Granted most cub fans are pieces of shit either because they are bandwaggoners or lovable loser mentality.  Some cub players are pieces of shit (Barrett), some are not (Lee).  Dusty Baker is a piece of shit (for reasons other than playing to be a spoiler).  The question becomes: Will a manager who is NOT a piece of shit convert the cub fans/players or will they convert him?  I lean toward thinking the fans would convert the manager.
