The Mailbag: Are The Bears Going To Suck?

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

Conor Gillaspie Is No ‘Slap-Hitter’

Conor-Gillaspie1

On Monday evening, as happens so often during any edition of the Boers and Bernstein Show, there was a caller on the line with a stupid question. Well, actually, the question itself wasn’t entirely stupid, but the voice and delivery of the man asking it made it seem stupid.

The man wanted to know, with Paul Konerko retiring after this season, if the White Sox should move Conor Gillaspie to first base to allow Matt Davidson to take over at third. It was at this point that Dan Bernstein said something that caught my attention, because as often as I disagree with Bernstein on many different topics, he’s normally much smarter when it comes to baseball.

The Cubs Could Be Moving Down The Radio Dial

It’s frustrating that all the major news involving the Cubs these days is either about Wrigley Field, the rooftops, television contracts and Old Style, but that’s just the way things are as the Cubs continue this never-ending-but-hopefully-ending-somewhat-soon rebuilding project. And the latest major news is that the Cubs could be moving down your radio dial in 2015.

Ed Sherman is reporting that WBBM-AM 780 has become the favorite to become the new radio home of Chicago Cubs baseball.

I know you’ve heard about the conversation that allegedly took place between Joakim Noah and Carmelo Anthony during All Star Weekend. It’s been every where today, but just in case you haven’t read it, I’ll recap it for you.

Chris Broussard says that somebody told him that they overheard Joakim Noah tell Carmelo Anthony that if he wants to win he should come to Chicago.

The Morning Constitutional: So We’re Still Talking About A Mascot, Huh?

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 9.42.31 AM

I love this city, but sometimes Chicago acts like the biggest collection of hayseeds ever assembled. Nobody feels slighted for no real reason like a Chicagoan.

When a comedian says he doesn’t like our pizza on his show, the local news does a story about it. Chicagoans respond to small, insignificant things like this on a regular basis. It’s so strange to me because the one thing the national media says about Chicago that nobody seems to fight, in spite of the fact it’s completely false, is that this city is a war zone. But I’m not going to get into that since there’s something so much more important going on.

That damned Cubs mascot.
