I didn't like the 2004 Cubs team. I'm starting to really dislike the current 2019 Cubs team. You still don't get it. Thanks for posting.If you want to compare situations at least make them valid.
1. 2004 has little resemblance to 2019. It was closer to 2017. They chose to move on from their CF.
2. 2019 they were pay roll blocked. More like what Zell did to Jim Hendry in 2009. Hendry wrecked the team Theo retained.
3. Compare Theo now to Theo Boston is fair. He has made the same errors
That is healthy discussion.
