Slacker of a Blogger Could be New Cubs GM

I've been a very lazy blogger. As the summer of 2005 wound down, I had a hard time exerting any energy on the Cubs. My initial malaise, followed by the birth of my son, a relatively ho-hum offseason, and an Ohio campaign season that seems to be heating up hasn't left much passion for blogging.

But I did recently purchase tickets to see the Cubs' trip to Jacobs Field. Still, I'm not nearly as excited about the baseball season as I was at this point last year. Quite frankly, I don't expect much out of the 2006 Cubs. I'll still root for them, I'll still follow them and I'll still tune in faithfully- but like most of my life as a Cubs fan, I'm just hoping that they finish higher than 4th in the division. Hopefully I'm wrong, hopefully I'm surprised- but I'm not holding my breath.

On the bright side, I think my own malaise and apathy toward this blog and the Cubs organization may qualify me for the General Manager position. Had I been GM over the last few months, I'm not sure that the team would necessarily be in a worse position than they are right now heading into spring training. I'm pretty sure I could ink over-the-hill pitchers with replacement parts in their arms for twice market value. I'm pretty sure I could down-grade the right field position and do nothing about left field. I'm pretty sure I could issue the same, recycled press releases stating "If we're healthy, we'll be competetive."

I haven't posted since August and with 10 minutes of typing, I think I'm caught up.
