Cubs, White Sox in a losing battle
By Jon Greenberg
CHICAGO -- If there is one place where trouble might find you this weekend, it’s downtown Chicago, where the NATO summit is attracting hordes of protestors and the possibility of violence and chaos.
In related news, mayhem is coming to Wrigley Field, too. Alfonso Soriano and Adam Dunn sharing left field? I broke my UZR just thinking about it.
Kerry Wood, the provincial saint of lost causes, unwittingly coined the catchphrase for this weekend’s crosstown series when he snapped at a reporter after being asked about throwing his glove last week.
“Irrelevant, dude.” Two words that describe Chicago baseball in 2012.
Hey, it’s better than “It’s a Way of Life” or “Baseball is better” or “Appreciate the Game.” You know, the ones the Cubs and Sox actually use.
