    Sammy, Sammmy part II

    Other Cubs who corked I love piling Colorful Cardenal, a cousin of longtime shortstop Bert Campaneris, played for nine teams in 18 major-league seasons. The Cuban immigrant couldn't crack San Francisco's outfield and was traded to California following the 1964 season. He finished second in the AL in steals (37), showed good range and a strong arm in center field, but also developed a reputation as a moody player. After two subpar seasons, Cardenal was shipped to Cleveland. He led the Indians in steals twice and tied a big-league record for outfielders by making two unassisted double plays in 1968. Traded to the Cardinals in 1970, he hit .293 with 74 RBI. In a 1971 season split between St. Louis and Milwaukee, he drove in a career-high 80 RBI. Finally reaching the Cubs in 1972, Cardenal stayed for six seasons. As the Cubs' right fielder in 1973, he led the team in hitting (.303), doubles (33), and steals (19). He was named Chicago Player of the Year by the Chicago baseball writers. In 1978-80, he played for the Phillies, Mets, and Royals, ending his major-league career batting .340 down the stretch for Kansas City and starting two games in right field during the 1980 World Series. Cardenal retired after the season and later became a major-league coach with the Reds, Cardinals, Yankees and Devil Rays after retirement. In 2001, Cardenal was accused of using a corked bat by Pete Rose, his teammate on the 1979 Phillies and himself the subject of innuendo. "I did have a corked bat one time," Rose told ESPN's Jayson Stark. "You know who corked them? Jose Cardenal. I never used it in a game. But we'd come in the clubhouse in Philly, and Jose Cardenal would be corking bats. You'd hear the drill going -- zizzzzzzzzzzz. But I never used none of them bats in a game." (ME/JGR)

    True sox fans

    I've had the pleasure of knowing a few pro athletes in hockey and football, one superstar the rest role players. They all talk about the days when a kid would come up and ask for an autograph because they were excited about meeting a pro athlete. The kids would cherish them, pulling them out to show friends that they had met a celebrity. Now as often as not the kid runs to an adult and asks "how much is this one worth?" I don't blame guys that have lost their enthusiasm for fans. Back in the 60's when I was a little tot we lived on Maplewood Ave near Irving Park Rd. To avoid traffic on Irving, some of the players living in the north suburbs would short cut behind out neighborhood. My friends and I would hang out at one corner with a sign asking for autographs. I remember Santo, Kessinger, Huntley, and a few others stopping and signing autographs. I forget which pitcher threw a no hitter and received a car (Hootin?) he stopped and gave us a ride. Imagine if a 7 year old jumped in a car with a stranger today. I'm not sure if it's the money that spoiled today's athletes or if they are just reflecting society.

    What the hell is Manuel talking about?

    lol and then throwing up. I've had a pounding headache I've pounded my desk I've pounded my tv Why not give JM a chance to manage in the NL? At this point he's like a late night bar pick up that f***ing won't leave. He's used up his usefullness, time to move on, adios, have a great life.

    Rumor: Time Running Out For Manuel

    Unlike the last white flag, this team will catch Cleveland If they don't do something in the next week or so it doesn't matter. This team will be in such a hole no manager could dig them out. At that point let JM stay and save some money. How does he save this gig? By winning a couple of games? We are going to sputter and sputter, almost get going then sputter some more. Hasn't JR seen enough? Who cares if they win 5 of the next 8? I'm still thinking an offseason dismissal, along with a decent free agent signing, to keep the season tix checks flowing in. They need to create buzz this next offseason even more so if the Cubs continue having their "magical season". What better than hiring a new manager. If they do dump JM it will be for an interim type of guy to be replaced by a permanent person during the off season. It would also be KW last chance. Speaking of our friends up north, I just talked to a buddy who works for the Houston newspaper and the guys around the Astros organization are privately (or so he says) believe the Cubs are in it for the long haul and feel this is their (Astros) last chance for a few seasons. They actually are thinking a couple year run for the Cubs Makes my stomach churn if we aren't winning also.

    nice catch jose

    And when did he drop the "e" from his last name? Of course if he was a Valentine yesterday he would be marked return to sender. To paraphrase Jimmy Buffet, If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane . . .
