RICH HILL LIKES HIMSELF MORE THAN YOU DO
I usually don’t post too much on weekends with so much going on (Home Depot, Bed, Bath & Beyond…if there’s time), but I just had to show you this gem. Bleacher Nation is quickly becoming my favorite Cubs blog, and they have a fantastic post called “Rich Hill Thinks He’s Really, Really Awesome“.
You have to go over there and read it.They burn Hill to a crisp because of this statement he made to the Baltimore Sun about his recent struggles: “People get the misconception that this has been going on for a long time when it’s like, no, a year ago, I was one of the top five pitchers in the National League,” Hill said.
Sorry if you just spit coffee or food on your screen. I know I did. But now at least it’s all clear to me why we didn’t win the World Series last year. How can you send one of the top 5 pitchers in the league to the minors and expect to win it all?
