Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.

I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)

Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well.

This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

Are the Cubs playing Monopoly ?

I was bored today . . . and while I am a “vintage” card hobbyist (60's and 70's) and Chicago Cub fan, I still hope that the summer of 1969 repeats itself but with a different ending. I am sorry to those "modern day baseball enthusiasts" but I find myself compelled to comment on the latest of the Chicago Cubs acquisitions. Are the Cubs playing Monopoly with Milton Bradley ? It seems to be so.

They “purchased” a property that is terribly expensive and serves no purpose. $ 30 million for a DH – has anyone told the Cubs top brass recently that we are in the National League ! Buying Pennsylvania Avenue (Bradley) is the worst money wasting move any good Monopoly player can do.
The Cubs are taking a Chance !

Will we end up advancing to Boardwalk but not making it all the way ?

Will the Cubs be sent “directly to jail” for deceiving us fans once again ?

Will the Cubs make it HOME but not much past.

Are we “going back three steps”.

I am sorry (yet still very hopeful) that the Cubs have decided to play Monopoly and take such a CHANCE with Milton Bradley.

I will stick to believing there is a new ending to the summer of 2009.
