Fire Lou

leave a comment »

Sporting news just recently interviewed Lou Pinella, and Lou proved to Cub fans why he has to be fired now. Before I point out what Lou said, let me make it clear that due to my Major in Journalism I tend to analyze what people say, by obviously looking at the words somebody says.

Pinella was asked the following:

You’ve managed both the Yankees and the Cubs? Are the pressures and expectations the same or different in each place?”

And Lou’s response:

“You never would think it, but there is pressure in Chicago. They haven’t won in so long. They are going to win. It’s just a question of when and how soon. It’s a wonderful franchise. It’s a really nice city and Wrigley Field is a fun place to play. You start a ballgame and you feel like you are in the British Open with the wind blowing, light rain and so forth, and all of a sudden it ends up a sunny day and you’re hitting the ball with 9-irons into the left-field bleachers.”

Key word here: They. They are going to win. No WE are going to win, but instead he used “they are going to win.”

Lou has to be fired immediately if he doesn’t believe that WE don’t have a shot at a World Series title.

Pinella also went on to make excuses in the interview from sporting news:

“I’ve never seen so many injuries. We lost 12 players for over 30 days, and they were all our top people. None of our backup people, except for our fourth outfielder and fifth infielder. Outside of that, everybody else was either a 1-2-3-4 starting pitcher, a key reliever or a position player.”

Really Lou? You’re going to make excuses now for why we sucked last year. NO! Unacceptable, WE we’re built for a run at the World Series Crown last year and you have the nerve to blame it on injuries.

If Pinella thinks WE don’t have a shot this year, then show him the door.
