It’s only Spring Training and the Chicago Cubs drama is already in mid-season form. A dugout beef occurred between pitcher Carlos Silva and third baseman Aramis Ramirez on Wednesday after the Cubs gave up six runs in the first inning of a spring training game.
Unfortunately the fight was quickly broken up by players and coaches before it got any good, it began after Silva gave up six runs and while his shitty teammates committed three errors behind him, including one by Ramirez. I was hoping Carlos Zambrano would get into it and get real nasty.
You’ve got two ticked off people,” new Cubs manager Mike Quade said. “It was a brutal first inning. Plenty of blame to go around. Maybe it’s what we freaking need — maybe we need to get ticked off. It’s Day Four of spring training. I’ve got no business getting all fired up on four days of work, but today was really tough to watch, and it hasn’t been fun to begin with. Guys get upset, and we’ll handle it in-house.”
Yeah that is not exactly what you want to hear just 3 games into Spring Training, ESPECIALLY when your last Championship win is going on 103 years strong.
In other Cub news, it seems like the “Charlie Sheen drama” has overtaken the locker-room, outfielder Reed Johnson said “The clubhouse stops and turns up the TV when he’s speaking, everybody enjoys watching everybody else go crazy, I guess, for some reason.” I can’t blame them the dude is straight up crazy and friggin entertaining. If you haven’t seen the Charlie Sheen 20/20 interview that aired Tuesday Night check it out! He is full of catch phrases that I’m guilty of repeating all last night and all day today.
I mean when you think of the Cubs you INSTANTLY think of the one thing Charlie Sheen is all about.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTEuLeh5JOI[/youtube]
