Default I don't believe the Cubs are real

I don't believe the Cubs are real. OR at least the 2012 season didn't really happen.

1. The owner of the team is from the financial industry and we know how evil they are.

2. The team President is jewish. And we all know they control the world (please know this is being sarcastic).

3. They get a lot of money from Lou Malnati's for commercials and such. Suspiciously closely named to the illuminati.

4. They got rid of Bob Brenly the broadcaster for no reason.

I think they're phony simply because they're based in Chicago...

No, but they did back in the early sixties.

They had some good ballplayers, but other than the 1969 meltdown team, I don't remember the Cubbies ever really being competitive, except when the Marlins took them out of the NL playoff's in 2003.

Their latest move toward becoming competitive in two season's (Epstein's prediction), is a renovation project at Wrigley Field. Now, of course, there is the old "Curse of the goat" conspiracy theory about the CC, but actually, with more runs scored there (usually against the Cubs), than any other major stadium in history, Wrigley Field is really the curse. Plans underway to build a new electronic scoreboard and a ribbon advertising board, which would limit the view of the rooftop seats across the street has management threatening to abandon Wrigleyville and Wrigley Field, and move to a more modern stadium. Gatta be kidding me, have been to Wrigley Field dozens of times, and yes, it is old, cozy, dilapidated and fun. Management also wants permission from MLB to play another 40 night games at Wrigley, which has serious consequences for the neighborhood.

Moving out of Wrigley Field, huge mistake. Like the Colts pulling out of Baltimore in the middle of the night, destroying a great franchise name (no matter what their later success, Indianapolis in no way has the aura of the old Baltimore Colts), the Chicago Cubs are Chicago and Wrigley Field, and vice versa. What makes the Wrigleyville neighborhood attractive is, in fact, the Cubs and Wrigley Field. A MLB stadium presence enhances the neighborhood, generally, and the two coexist well. Doesn't always happen (particularly down here in South Florida), where the Dolphins Stadium and the new downtown Marlins Park, exist in two of the crummier neighborhoods of what generally is a beautiful city. Neither team draws anybody to their games, and nobody hangs around afterward, to make the neighborhoods vital, and several major restaurant and bar chains pulled out of their commitments to construct in Little Havana when the Marlins were dismantled (again), by their miserable owner, Jeffrey Loria.

What Chicago has in the Cubs should be preserved. Like Fenway Park in Boston, which has been renovated and will still be standing 100-years from now, messing with the neighborhood - baseball chemistry of the Cubbies in Chicago, would be a mistake. It IS magical, no matter how the Cubs compete on the field, and almost impossible to emulate anyplace else.

The Cubs in anyplace other than Wrigley Field would also be a mistake (they would become a team like the Twins or Brewers, unknown). "The Babe" calling his home run shot; Ernie Banks "Lets play two; Andre Dawson's "The Hawk" Ron Santo; Billy Williams; Ryne Sanburg; Mark Grace, Sammy Sosa (saw him play there as a rookie); come-on Cub ownership. Renovation, fine, moving - stupid.

Hmm......didn't name any pitchers. Hmmm.....can't think of any talented pitchers who ever played for the Cubs (or did and most were traded to later have great success on other ball clubs). Perhaps that is the "curse" of Wrigley.

Sorry, got carried away, not often we get sports commentary on Political Wrinkles, too bad everyone is too busy with their political ideas. I am heading to Chicago this summer as part of a two-week baseball excursion, and including the Cubs at Wrigley in that swing......Stan
