This kid has to move out of CHC right?

My Two Cents

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Thu Oct 16, 2003 6:22 am

First of all, shame on the media for not helping this kid's well being. A Chicago newspaper actually posted this guys vital statistics, home, and work address. That's just morally wrong.

Second, the Cubs blew it for themselves. Any Cubs "fan" who points a finger at this guy isn't truly a fan. I'll say it again, the Cubs blew this whole thing with little help from a fan in the stands. Just like Buckner didn't blow the series for the Red Sox in 1986. It was a team effort and the kid is just a scapegoat.

Also, it's the fan's right to try to catch that ball. Hell, there were like eight fans putting their gloves out to try to catch that ball. Singling this one guy out is ridiculous. All of those fans had every right to try to snag that ball. Getting caught up in the moment is easy to do, especially when a foul ball is coming your way. It's not like the fan reached over the railing to catch it. The ball landed right in his seating area.

Remember, this is a game people. Not life and death. This kid is being wrongfully scapegoated and the media should be ashamed of themselves for only fueling the fire.

Agreed. At least quite a few people in the Cubs organization (including Alou himself) are being reasonable about the whole thing.

Sick of those who are spineless.

I know .... The Marlins pay him to dress up as a "Goat" ... and then run around on the field trying to catch flyballs... It will quickly become a "pregame ritual" ...
"How Many did Bartman catch today?" :-) they could even have an over/under
