John Kass Gets it!

Hell has not yet frozen over, but we’re beginning to feel a cool August chill.

 

Progressive fans of Chicago’s National League ball club finally – after more than a decade! – see eye to eye with Chicago Tribune Page 2 columnist John Kass. In an August 1 column, Kass, who replaced first ballot hall-of-famer and life-long Cub fan Mike Royko at the Trib, precisely identified the Cubs as the “Obama’s of baseball.” While the conservative White Sox fan no doubt meant for that remark to be disparaging to our cause, his one-liner drives deep into the left field power alley. Kass should be careful of that which he mocks, especially as the Royals tee off on his Sox.

 

While this page has not always agreed with Mr. Kass, we admire his prescient view that Obama is the Cubs, and the Cubs are Obama.

While Obama has played .500 ball since returning from Europe, the Cubs head into the first full week of August solidly positioned as the presumed NL Central nominee. The team’s fundraising advantage over the Brewers and Cardinals has enabled it to execute a 27-position roster strategy where no position in the rotation, field or bullpen is taken for granted. The Cubs can even afford to keep John Lieber and his $4 million-plus salary in limbo, without having to have lukewarm fundraisers to pay off that mismanaged debt.
