Of Cub flubs and familiar faces
“Buy me some popcorn and Cracker Jacks.”
Kind of hard to believe the stout Cubbie defensive tandem of Jacque Jones and Michael Barrett would botch a game-losing play at the plate, huh? Bruce Bowen The Spurs stopper has done everything but handcuff ... via Journal Star

Michael Barrett is not a major league ballplayer. I don't care how difficult it is to find a catcher if he is not released the Cubs will continue to lose. Big Z tried to get rid of him for us cubfans. He recognized that Barrett play is disgraceful and Lou must know it too.

It is hard for me to single out just one Cub to blame, unless it is Jim Hendry. Afterv all he put this ugly mess together. We have a lot of players we should get rid of. To start the process you are right, Barrett and Jones are high on the list, but let's not forget Blanco, Izturek, Ward ,and several guys in the bull pen. Of course they all can;'t be gotten rid of at the same time, butHendry MUST start doing the right thing quickly. I still think Theriot and Fontenot should be the double play combo till they prove other-wise. Hill seems to be a good defemnsive cathcer so why not use him for now. Let's face it, to have a good team year in and year out, YOU NEED A PRODUCTIVE MINOR LEAGUE SYSTEM. Freev agents are available because of two reasons: they are too exspensive or they are washed-up!!!!So why not spend that money on young players??????????
