I just finished listening to the press conference announcing Dusty Baker as the Cubs new manager. Now I'll write a little entry here to get some scattered thoughts down, then back to doing what I should be doing.|
First off a health report. Other than a cough and my voice sounding a little off, I'm back to normal.
Now, random paraphrased Dusty Baker quotes and my comments on them:
I win because I'm supposed to win.
I like that attitude.
Sammy's da' man.
Hmm, up to now all I've heard on the radio is how he and Sammy could have some ... conflicts. Well, we'll see how things go when the season starts next year.
The past is the past.
Gee, that sounds familiar.
plenty of minor league pontential.
Yep, that has been the strong point of the Cubs system. The only problem there is that the minor leaguers the cubs develop usually wind up on major league teams other than the Cubs.
on teaching--sometimes you have to let someone fail before a person is ready to learn.
That applies to a lot more than just baseball.
