to this day, nobody has been able to tell me exactly when, other than the arrival of Dusty Baker, when the Cubs became this yearly contender I have been hearing so much about.
5 winning seasons in 35 years...
As for Dusty. I hope he runs away from that organization. Hell he has already quit, and who can blame him. Over the last two years, the Cubs fans have been some of the most disrespectful, digraceful fans I have seen in a long time.
They deserve this losing, they trully do.
I'm not sure what makes you think I'm young, but that's immaterial.
Dusty had nothing to do with anything. I thought it was a bad hire at the time, and I still do. He wasn't and still isn't a tactically minded manager, and that's what the team needed then and needs now. The emergence of Prior and Zambrano, along with Aramis and then Derrek, was the reason the Cubs and their fans expected to be contenders, not because of Toothpick Man. I hope Dusty runs away from the Cubs as well. I wish he would have done it years ago.
As for "taking us to the brink of the Series", Dusty watched as the team had an 88 win season and snuck into the playoffs. Wood and Prior did the rest, and if not for Dusty's idiocy in not going to the pen in Game 7, we might have even gotten to the Series. I've been nothing but unimpressed with Dusty's so-called skills.
I'm not even going to bother with your generalzations of Cub fans. It reeks of being grossly uninformed or severly biased, whichever shoe fits.
