"It became one of those things where you see him putting the blame on everybody else, and sometimes you have to look in the mirror and realize that maybe the biggest part of the problem is yourself and wanting to be there and wanting to play every day and wanting to have some fun.

"He's a quiet guy, I think he likes his privacy. ... I think a lot of frustration built up in him and he didn't let it out the right way."

Imagine how good that must have felt to get off their collective Cub chests?
Like going to a shrink or something...
Why, they felt so good they went out and pounded the Brewers ten to two.
Derrek Lee felt so good he drove in 4 runs and tied his all-time career RBI record at one zero seven.
Tyler Colvin felt so good he decided to join the big club and get his first major league hit, rbi, and walk.
Lou Piniella felt so good he offered Tom Gorzelanny a job next year.
Richard Daley felt so good he said, "Well, that makes our chances of getting the Olympics in Chicago go waaaay up!"
My cat felt so good she offered up a truce with the dogs.
And I felt so good I walked over to Dairy Queen for a chocolate malt with double malt.
