Baseball Thoughts

- Poor Brewers. Dave Bush is all that stands between them and a first round sweeping. Has any team come back from a 2-0 deficit in the NLDS?

- How many times has Ben Sheets and his fragility let down the people of the State of Wisconsin? To quote Flight of the Conchords--- "Too many to count, Mutha uckas."

- The Cubs may have the most two-faced, self-entitled fans in the country. I can understand being furious after the second inning, where two infield errors led to four unearned runs. But relentless and constant booing for the rest of the entire game? Pathetic. And not only pathetic, it hurts your own team-- the players obviously needed encouragement at that point and the crowd pissed on them. I think Cubs fans believe that after so many years of junk, they're entitled to success. That's just stupid. No one's entitled to anything in this world, folks. Good things happen to total jerks (how else can you explain Michigan's win last weekend?), and bad things happen to people who don't deserve it. Your team's past history doesn't entitle you to anything, Cub fans, so quit whining and root for your team like real fans.

- Manny Ramirez has only been in LA for a couple months, right? How'd he get his batting helmet so beat-up looking already?

- The networks have to be crying. The Cubs in the playoffs are a guarantee of big ad revenue. A Cubs-Red Sox or Cubs-White Sox series would have brought in a ton of dough. Tampa Bay-Phillies doesn't really do it for anyone, except Philly fans. (Until someone can prove that Devil Ray fans actually exist, I will treat them like the Yeti-- mere mythology.)
