Poor Jay Marriotti. Apparently Cub fans (and blogs), have been giving Jay a hard time. His latest article is a regular whinefest. Marriotti lists a bunch of stuff Cub fans have supposedly said and counters with his own prickly assurances that they are wrong. I'm sort of confused as to why he even bothered to write this tripe. Isn't he the sports writer, the one who gets paid to put words on his processor? Since when does he give a shit what the common man (or blogger) has to say? I don't agree with all the pie in the sky hopes for this season either, but I'm not ready to count the Cubs out before the first pitch is thrown. Marriotti asserts that he believes the Cubs will win the division, but lose in the playoffs once again. He asserts that Wood will have an arm injury by May 1st. He also says Cub fans need to "get a life one of these centuries". Apparently some of the web criticisms have hit home for the King of Schlock. Perhaps he needs to write better articles rather than worrying about what the blogs are saying about him. This article reeks of unprofessionalism and childishness. As for me, it's too bad I already assigned the ShitMissile of the Week honors to Jose Canseco. Congratulations Jay, you're first runner up.
