I know that I have loudly disparaged the inferior Chicago team in times past, but even I feel bad for 'em right now. All this has happened today:
Ron Santo got screwed. AGAIN.
Greg Maddux retired.
Kevin Towers announced that the Cubs are not only bidding against themselves for Jake Peavy, but if they don't agree to the Padres' ransom by Thursday, they'll keep Peavy until at least Opening Day.
And now your owners, the Tribune Company, is bankrupt.
Now that's a lousy day. At this rate, Lou is going to demand a trade back to the Rays.
