1. From Tom Chambers:

Food for thought: With all of the Joe Maddon antics with the onesies and faux hippie mentality, it doesn't ring true. Was he a hippie back in the day? He's a few months older than me and by the time I was old enough to be a hippie, it was over. If he means the '70s, guaranteed there were substances.

Is Maddon trying to create a diversion in case they don't succeed? He's right if he thinks the fanboy media has already been properly indoctrinated.

Also, no one is saying that he's taking Cubbie Cuteness to previously unimagined heights. I think that DOES put more pressure on the organization because (smart) Cubs fan won't take humorously to the Cubbies having so much fun with pie fights, pin the tail on the donkey, water balloons and air guitar with baseball bats as they lose 11 out of 18 and have to beat Milwaukee to stay out of the cellar as they near Memorial Day.

This Cubbie Kumbaya® is NOT funny to anyone who has been a fan for any number of years.

Didn't Kirby Puckett come out of Triton College? I you mentioned it, I missed it.

Coffman replies: The awesome Kirby Puckett (RIP) played ball for Triton after graduating from Calumet High School and playing for Bradley for a season (where he switched from infield to outfield. So did "One Dog" Lance Johnson. We did not mention these facts and shame on us.

And you nailed it with your thoughts on Maddon apparently trying to actually increase Cutesy Cubbie Bullshit. dude desperately needs to just focus on baseball for a while. There are still 60 guys in camp, you would think he could somehow keep himself busy with just coaching.

Rhodes replies: +1.
