Welcome to the Show!
Well first things first. I think that is great that you guys have taken the initiative and signed a talent such as myself. I definitely think my presence is needed, due to the apparent anti-Cub environment, I will be a breath of fresh air, or least someone who hasn't yet drank massive amounts of the Kool-aid. That being said there has been some inquiry to what my opinion on the "Tale of two catchers" may be. For our readers who aren't familiar with this worn out tale, during the "Cross-town Classic" Michael Barrett punched A.J. Given A.J.'s past, my feeling is that he most likely deserved it. From a fans perspective It did anger me. Basically it just perpetrated the image of losers that the Cubs for some reason love to cling too. You've got a decent catcher in Barrett losing his cool and punching a superior player. Although I disagree with the way Barrett acted he should check into leaving the Cubs for the UFC, because he did lay a massive hurtin' on good old A.J. So now you know, although I don't agree with it, if your going to act like an animal that's the way to do it. To my fellow gents here at Fleece and Flog, I look forward to being part of your well informed, intelligent, cutting-edge, and sometime ridiculous antics!
