In all seriousness, that web site epitomizes the reasons everyone else in the world laughs at the Cubs and their fans.



i was going to do this once he was hired.

—Krish, Fire Lou Piniella!

get your Christmas gifts at or you’ll be on notice too. Or, if yer so f*&#ing funny try posting sumthin there fagg0tt. Yer probly a communista who can’t read good American.

—Patrick, Fire Lou Piniella!

I know you think what you’re doing is right. But it is my job not to let that happen.

—Jack Bauer, Fire Lou Piniella!

I’m making a second comment here in hopes of getting listed in the testimonials: “Bad Kermit is the best Cubs blogger I know.”

—Domer MQ, Fire Lou Piniella!

YOU’RE AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

—Sammy Sosa, Fire Lou Piniella!

I hope I’m not late to the party on this one. This guy kills me, though. And not in a good way. And what about those commenters? They ain’t Deadspin no matter how hard they try. He needs to just give it up. It’s no wonder, though. I noticed that he’s also writing for Desipio or something. That place is a ZOO! Those guys could learn a thing or two about how to have a friendly debate. I tried posting over there ONCE and some jerk called me a…well, I won’t repeat it. That place bugs me, but I won’t link there because they don’t deserve the traffic.

—Pickle, North Side Baseball


i just checked out that site…he IS all-ego.

he has a link called “From the guy who helped run out Dusty” that’s his “about” page.

is the internet big enough for an ego like that? he actually believes he had an impact on dusty’s firing…a pivotal one, nonetheless.

now he’s on to his next target for no other reason than it gives him something else to write about that feeds the only audience he knows how to talk to.

criticism skewed into comedy still doesnt change the fact he crossed the line of satire* and injected his own real-world issues into the blog.

that’s a hybrid that doesn’t mix and its pretty sloppy.

you can rip off the onion (national lapoon, etc, whatever) or you can rip off a legit news/blogging site, but when you mix the two somewhere along the line someone forgot why they started doing something to begin with**.


*Editor’s Note: Satire is a technique used in drama and the performing arts, fiction, journalism, and occasionally in poetry, the graphic arts, and more commonly popular media. Although satire is usually witty, and often very funny, the purpose of satire is not primarily humour but criticism of an event, an individual or a group in a clever manner.

**Editor’s Note: Satire is one of the most precise literary terms; it usually has a very definite target, which may be a person or group of people, an idea or attitude, an institution or a social practice. In any case the target is held up to a ridicule that is often quite merciless, and sometimes very angry; ideally in the hope of shaming it into reform. A very common, almost defining feature of satire is a strong vein of irony or sarcasm, in fact satirical writing or drama very often professes to approve values that are the diametric opposite of what the writer actually wishes to promote. Parody, burlesque, exaggeration and double entendre are all devices frequently used in satirical speech and writing – but it is strictly a misuse of the word to describe as “satire” works without an ironic (or sarcastic) undercurrent of mock-approval, and an element at least of anger.

    Lou seems like a great guy and a wonderful coach. So, your “blog” is total waste of time.
