Lou is an IDIOT

Instead of all of us scattering all the stupid things this senile old bastard does in different threads , I made this for us to post each time Lou exasperates us.


Today , Lou will start Nady Perez at first !!

Check out ComCast one on one with Lou . It gives you great insight, I love the way he refers to the Yankees as "us" and the Cubs as " they " and "them"/

It looks more and more like he has lost this team.

Lou benched Theriot after a reporter told him that Theriot went all of May with one walk in hitting in the first of the order .

You guys have me thinking about Lou more and more and more and more I agree completely with you. Did these really happen:

1. He had to learn from a reporter about Theriot's non-production? Terrible , just terrible. Completely out of touch.

2. He refers to the " ... Yankees as "us" and the Cubs as " they " and "them"... " Astounding ! If I were Ricketts I would sit him down for a private talk - very polite, mind you - and find out just where his allegiances lie and how much he cares - really cares - about the Cubs. Remember, he hired on with the Cubs primarily for potential personal glory.

3. I know this one is true because I read this article: http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/news/art...=.jsp&c_id=chc which contained this comment:

" ... "We needed one more out from Lilly," Piniella said. "I had Carlos Marmol [was] ready to come in to pitch, and we didn't get it. Lilly pitched a good ballgame. One more out and we bring Marmol in to face [Lastings] Milledge, but we didn't get to that." ... "

The out referred to is the last out of the 8th inning. Not bringing Marmol in for that out resulted in this: ... [Lilly] surrendered a two-run home run to Pirates second baseman Neil Walker. The first home run of Walker's career lifted the Pirates to a 3-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday night at PNC Park. ... "

Lou is apparently so locked into some baffling and idiotic formula he refused to bring Marmol in for anything but the 9th inning. Just 1 out in the 8th but he would not bring him in.

Lou really must go.

I think I may refer to Lou as Uncle Fester. Not so much because he looks like Uncle Fester from Adams Family but it has more to do with him shepherding this festering puss hole of a team.

The same could be said for the entire organization and its philosophy.

The Tigers team that went to the WS in 2006 grew up playing ball under Trammell. I think he'll be better for the young players than Sandberg. Give him a shot for half a season, although, I think that will be up to Lou; if Hendry didn't fire Baker in 2006, he sure as hell won't fire Lou this year. We already know that Lou and Larry/Trammell don't see eye to eye.

I agree Bock. I really don't think Hendry will fire Lou. If you believe what is coming out of Hendry's mouth , he loves Lou and he is not going anywhere. The Ricketts claim to love Lou too. So there is not much chance of it and i really don't want them to bring up any other rookies under this guy but , they probably will.

RIcketts may just be fans and not really think much about the damage Uncle Fester could do to these kids but I can not see Wally Hayward not seeing it. Maybe Tom doesn't listen to Hayward and Kenny really is still president ( eek gad ! ) .
