One Down, Several To Go
Despite the hatred some had for Jacque Jones, this page never really despised the guy. Sure, he had the Dusty Bakerish habit of blaming everything but himself. Sure, he had awful numbers when it mattered and good ones when it didn't. Sure, he tried to change the subject from his poor play to the fans.
But hate? Not really.
That gets reserved for guys like Todd Hundley who was not only a poor player, but also flipped off the fans despite making millions while being strung out.
Or Dave Kingman who decided to blow off the fans on his own appreciation day.
Or Korey Patterson whose sins are easily found by using the search box at the top of this page.
See, those guys all were not only bad players, but insulted the fans. It's not like Jacque did that....
Yeah, good bleeping riddance to one of the worst Cubs of all time.
It's just too bad that some schmoe with the power to decide to make him a Cub didn't make him one in the first place.
Damn good think Lou Piniella is here to be the defacto GM.
Ryan Dempster and Jason Marquis? Keep your bags packed.
