Between The Lines
Barry Rozner reminds us that Greg Maddux was the Cubs' only pitcher to make every start the last two years. Stop and consider how pathetic that is for a team supposedly built around pitching.
Then, Greg plain disses Dusty:
Cubs manager Dusty Baker tried to imply last August that Maddux was considering retirement after the 2005 season, though Maddux says that was a figment of Baker’s — or someone’s — imagination.
And to know Maddux is to believe it was total nonsense.
"I don't know where it came from. (Stuff) happens, you know?" Maddux said. "I think what I always think when people say stuff. They're entitled to their opinion.
"I never waste my time worrying about someone else's opinion. I went about my business, and I'm not going to waste a lot of time trying to change people's minds."
So, Dusty was full of shit and Greg isn't going to listen to him.
That a hell of an endorsement by a Hall of Fame pitcher who doesn't exactly have the "Joe Montana" reputation.
I hope the suits in Trib Tower remember this when they are asked to approve a contract extension for Jim Hendry.
