Well, I started this gif around Christmas.
If you get the physical Trib, you saw a headline this morning that said, "Fresh Vocabulary" - mostly about Cubs' management insisting that this is not a "rebuilding" year, but rather a "building" year.
Anyway, I figured it's about time to put this one up.
You can see these new terms can go on and on, and aside from the "rebuilding" vs "building" I really like most of these new ways to talk and think.
I still read around and there's some unhappiness with Theo, but whatever.
Some people are never happy.
I do wish management would acknowledge reality - people just don't like to feel like they're being bee-essed. Besides, no matter what you call it (building or rebuilding), there's tons of optimism to go around.
Jim Hendry's last year was horrible not really because of the awful team or the dopey manager, it was horrible because there was no end of bad baseball in sight.
Like there wasn't a future.
I've said this before: when a White Sox fan says "You're so lucky" to me, well, I kinda think that says it all.
Okay, Ryan Braun.
Man, I heard him talk yesterday and if he's lying and is aware that he's lying, they should have a special award for him Sunday night at the Oscars.
But I can't imagine this is over, is it?
If the "collector" actually did some kind of hanky panky with the urine sample that's one thing and that guy should be flogged for ruining what should have been Braun's shining MVP moment. But if there's something wrong with the science or process then I'd say to MLB, "You're in trouble."
Quick, say that out loud.
"You're in trouble."
That's so funny, Tim!
