The Box Seats : Views from the Media


Mark Prior is boring even when he's in court. Couldn't he get in trouble for something more exciting? [Chicago Tribune]
Say hello to our early season heroes. We'll need a lot more where this came from if we're to be competitive. [Chicago Sun-Times]
It's Mariotti time, that fat flip-flopping bastard. [Chicago Sun-Times]
Peter Gammons gives the Cubs some love, ESPN-style. Could this be the year? Really? [ESPN Insider, reg. req'd]*

* I'll dissect this later for you plebs who don't have Insider.

Well, I can't get to two of your four links...keep up the good work. I usually hit the trib via google news. And Insider? Everybody knows that's for suckers...

Funny, as they all worked for me. As for Insider, it might be "for suckers", but ESPN seriously hides all their better, more insightful content behind it. And when someone gets you a gift subscription to ESPN the Magazine [which includes free subscription to Insider], you can hardly call me a sucker.

F**k Mariotti,

He makes some good points, but I seem to remember him railing against the for umm, the past 2 1/2 years.

But I do give him kudos for cubbing Wood and Prior "baseball's equivalent to Blue Cross and Blue Shield"

umm, i suck at typing.

Insert "Cubs" where a noun is missing and replace "Cubbing" with Dubbing.

That is definitely true. Prior and Wood get too much of a free pass sometimes because of their always-high potential, but honestly, how many "freak injuries" will Prior suffer before his time in Chi-town is done?

Same goes for Wood - it seems like Hendry builds a reasonably good team, only to base their success on any kind of triumphant return from W & P.

Yeah. Cause we really have too much pitching right now. Let's build a team around Williams, Rusch, and Hill. That'll be good.
