Shame on You

… Drayton McLane

You sold us out.  Without your stamp of approval, this either wouldn’t have happened, or it would’ve happened under serious and unified protest.

… Bud Selig

Obviously, we did not play two “home” games in Milwaukee, nor did we play two games at a “neutral” site.  We played two games in a roofed stadium full of 23,000 Cubs bleacher bums.  That’s more bleacher bums than fit at Wrigley, making it a worse venue for us than the one on Clark Street.

… Aramis Ramirez

Wow, I really didn’t know you had this in you: “If they cry about it, that’s the wrong thing to do because you’ve still got to play the game,” he said. “You’ve got to go out there and try to win ballgames. It doesn’t matter where you play or what situation you’re in. We’re on the road, too. Even though we had a lot of Cubs fans, we weren’t playing at Wrigley Field.” 

So, you’re betting you won’t face Oswalt in October?

  1. Wow.

    ‘We’re on the road, too’

    Situation: Guy with Knife. Guy with Gun.
    Guy with gun: “If he cries about it, that’s the wrong thing to do because you’ve still got to fight,” he said. “You’ve got to go out there and try to win. It doesn’t matter where you are. He could have thrown the knife. I’m in danger here too.”

  2. Jason Stark made a helluva good point on Mike and Mike this morning. Namely, that, aside from the fact that these were essentially Cubs home games, it was hugely unfair to the Astros players to make them fly to Milwaukee so soon after the hurricane, at a time when they might have more pressing concerns as people than playing a game.

    The games should have been moved to the end of the season.

  3. Cabeza De Vaca Says:

    I couldn’t agree more with Donovan (and Stark). Did y’all read the story on astros.com about Blum and Newhan’s two flat tires? That was actually a pretty good look into how ballplayers have to deal with everyday crap, too. The fact that they had to get their sh*t together to get out of town was totally unfair in those circumstances.

    I’m not whining, Phil Gramm, I’m complaining.
