Uh, I don't think so.
Remember way back when Dusty Baker first became the Cubs manager?
I do. It was 2003, and the oddest thing happened right after Dusty was hired: good players on other teams said out loud in the paper that they wanted to be a Cub.
I wonder when that'll happen again.
We're about to come to 2010 trade-time. This season has been a teeter totter, and over the next couple weeks or so it's gonna go up or down. (Hey, the Sox suddenly became relevant - the same could happen with the Cubs, right?)
If they start winning, then everything Jim Hendry has been saying will happen will happen: they play like they're supposed to and ride out the rest of the season.
If the teeter totter goes down, then we can expect some trades to happen in July. The guys you've read the most about in trade rumor fodder have been D. Lee and Ted Lilly.
And I know about you guys.
You pretty much think like I do about Ted.
He's our coolest Cub. Our lone bad ass. Teddy Ballgame. Don't Tread On Ted. Terrible Ted Lilly of the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
The ONLY thing that could make this season worse is if he goes.
So, what's it gonna be, Cubs?
