As Chicago Cubs fans and part of a blog that’s a member of the FanSided Network, we are tied into essentially every social media channel available. And some of what we see from fans has us disappointed.
In an age of digital media, Cubbies Crib reaches our readers via all of the available social networks. We’re dialed into Chicago Cubs fans like never before. One thing that is different from back in the day is the immediate response we can get from our readers. We post it, and our readers can instantly give their take on it. Whether this is right or wrong can be debated from one fan to the next. But one thing is for certain. Winning may have ruined many Cubs’ fans.
Listen, we’re all aware that the Cubs aren’t playing great baseball right now. The pitching hasn’t been what it was last season, and the bats are simply non-existent. The same guys that helped the Cubs break a 108-year drought have gone “Jason Heyward“–except for Heyward who is playing better this year. But do you think the Cubs could have done what they did last season without Joe Maddon? Because there are many of you that think “anyone” could have managed that team.

I’ve seen recommendations of sending down Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Schwarber and Addison Russell. Are they all struggling? Hell yes, they are. But these are the players–the young players–the Cubs have built this thing around. So we win the World Series and just ditch anyone and everyone that was a part of it because they’re slow out of the gate? Because that’s the extent of what we see on our Facebook page. There’s nothing wrong with being frustrated with their performance. But some of you have gotten out of hand. Winning ruined you. It really did.
