Finally someone more prone to disaster than the Cubs.
This is how TVs get broken.
Definite Jheri Curl Hall of Famer.
Good thing he's mediocre at his day job.
They've never won since he's been alive. Not even a single game.

Okay. Sure. Now, or?
The deal, all of the Chicago Cubs players in return for all of the Boston Red Sox players, was not accepted by new Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington.
"I don't want to panic anyone, but with this trade not happening, we're going to suck for a long time, if not forever," said Epstein. "My expertise is more in the area of running really talented teams. Without those Red Sox players, I'm kind of out of my element. My rebuilding effort was based on getting Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez and all of their pitchers except John Lackey."
"Let's be honest, there is not one single professional reason for me to leave the Red Sox for the Cubs," the 38 year-old told reporters. "I mean, objectively speaking, the Red Sox are a better team with more money and a deeper farm system. I should be here. But this state is so fucking lame now it's unbearable. Seriously, it as a cultural wasteland."
The Brookline native and Yale graduate added that while it was not too long ago that he was proud to be from the Bay State, those feelings have eroded over the last few years.
