First, I'd like to say that Z went too far in pointing out a certain player. This is a team effort at looking like an indie minor league club.
Now, to my main point. I'd like to see more players with the fire that Z is displaying, minus the calling out of teammates. Right now, I see one player getting pissed at losing, while everyone else on this team is acting like their only concern is whose mom brought the fucking pop and twinkies after the game. I'd say calling this bucket of shit a triple A team is being damn kind right now. Ricketts is acting too nice for my liking, Hendry is incompetent, and there's a wave of complacency in that clubhouse that someone needs to end right now. They're acting like it's a fucking badge of honor to have gone 103 years without a World Series title (let's not fool ourselves, that streak continues this season). Like it's their identity.
So, you get rid of Z. Then what? The rest of the team is more vanilla than the 80's Atlanta Braves. When does a shakeup start to happen? Fine, get rid of a lot of these guys for pennies on the dollar, but what is their plan to restock the team? The pitching in the minors has yet to produce jack for the major league club, and considering the new pitching coach was promoted, I think we can see why based on the results we're seeing in Chicago this year. Everyone is waiting on Pujols to show up next year, but I just don't see it. How many times will Hendry have to fuck up before everyone realizes that as long as he's GM, this team is going to remain stagnant? Sure, he had a good trade to bring Lee over, along with the deal for Ramirez years ago, but since then we've had shit like the Soriano and Fukudome busts. When is this shit going to end.
While I may not agree with how he threw Marmol under the bus, I COMPLETELY agree with the basis of the statement. This team sucks, and will suck for a long time as it's set up now.
