Greg Couch has an off day in his column today. He, correctly, identifies the flaws in Dusty Baker and says that, "(i)f Rich Hill is on the mound next season, find a new manager. If Matt Murton is leading off, new manager. If Felix Pie and Ronny Cedeno are starting, then the Cubs are building for the future, and clap-clap, clap-clap-clap, Baker should go."
What he fails to do is connect his own dots.
In the old days, the Cubs didn't put money into the team, didn't try. This time, they tried, spending $100 million to build a pennant winner. And this is what they built?
So, why no talk if it's time for the architect to go? Why isn't Jim Hendry's name mentioned once in the column? Try again, Greg.
