Back to the All-Tom Crean Show after this quick interruption

>> Wednesday

Just in case this story didn't make it out of the Chicago market, here's proof that Jim Hendry isn't the only idiot in the Cubs' organization.

More importantly, though, why the hell did it take so long for Ernie Banks to get a statue? Granted, I think statues of athletes outside of stadiums are an unnecessary extravagance, but if anyone got one outside of Wrigley first, it should have been him and not Harry Caray.

1. Statues and busts are intended for people admired for their physical attributes, not their voices.
2. He's Mr. freaking Cub--which isn't to say the nickname alone merits a statue, but the fact that he's still the best player that the franchise has ever had does.
3. Harry Caray was with the Cubs for 16 years... as a broadcaster. Banks was there for 19... as a player... a Hall of Fame player. And unlike Harry, he was (presumably) sober during the action.

I don't know... it just seems like a total disrespect to me. Anyway, if the typo story is already old news to readers in Milwaukee and elsewhere, sorry for wasting your time.

Totally true. Though it might be apples to oranges given the differences in location and neighborhood/aesthetics, the Brewers have two statues (Yount and Aaron) and could probably have more than that (Spahn and Matthews).

Also, speaking of not this post, did you see the thing on Fire Joe Morgan about how Hideki Matsui loves porn? Apparently, he loooooves it.

Whoever made the decision is as classless as all of the franchise's fans anyway so it fits. It was probably Crean's idea

Yeah, I'd actually heard the Matsui thing a day or two ago but forgot whence the story came. Conan maybe? I forget.
