Wanna Dump Beer? 5 Cubs That Should Get It
I wrote that the Cubs fan’s dumping of beer on Shane Victorino was misplaced anger. They should be dumping it on their own players. Here are 5 that deserve the beer bath. (Aside: no player deserves beer dumped on them. Speaking metaphorically here)
Carlos Marmol: You have to believe that Marmol is creeping much closer to the lead in the ‘Worst Cub of the Year’ poll. He’s walked 52 in 54 IP, and it has driven most Cubs fan completely batty.
Kevin Gregg: Gregg is a closer without closer stuff. It’s obvious he is better suited to a set-up role, but nobody thought he would be this inept. He’s given up 11 homers, blown 5 saves and has 4 losses. And beyond numbers the team’s psyche when he enters the game must be a wreck.
Milton Bradley: Don’t tell me how he’s coming around. The truth is that the Cubs would have been better off with a combo of Fox and Hoffpauir, at least until now. When ARam went down he was supposed to step up and carry the Cubs. He didn’t and his numbers stink to boot.
Aaron Heilman: One of the most aggravating pitchers to watch. Is he afraid to throw strikes, or just unable?
Alfonso Soriano: Still struggling to keep OBP above .300. This year his OPS is down 100 points from his career average. And he makes all kinds of mental mistakes and defensive gaffes.
