Mark DeRosa chases after Jim Hendry
I feel for Mark DeRosa.
All the guy wants is to play for the Cubs. Instead, he’s suiting up with the rival Cardinals.
No doubt it’s a move up from playing with god-awful Cleveland, but I would rather see DeRosa in a White Sox uni before seeing him wear the birds on the bat.
It’s fitting DeRosa now has the chance to punish his former GM, Jim Hendry, for the remainder of the season, and maybe even longer if the Cardinals decide to resign Mark to a multi-year deal.
What’s worse, however, is watching Milton Bradley, DeRosa’s offseason replacement; slowly divide the Cubs’ clubhouse.
Who knew ditching DeRo would ever hurt the Cubs this much?
Many moons ago I made a prediction.
I said Milton Bradley would keep the Cubs from winning a World Championship this season.
Through the first three months Bradley has held up his end of the deal.
His lack of hitting has gone hand-in-hand with his lack of professionalism. His blame-game is in full swing, and worse, he’s quickly dividing the Cubs’ clubhouse.
When teammates rip one another publicly, it’s a sure fire sign the team’s chemistry is off the mark (yes, I believe in clubhouse chemistry).
Thank Bradley for igniting the recent press barbs, and thank his teammates for leaking them out from behind the sacred walls of the clubhouse!
