Weasel on the Radio

I was browsing over Ben Weasel's blog when I found a great link of him talking baseball on the Madison ESPN radio affiliate back in April. The man knows his baseball.
The thing I found the most intriguing is the bit where he talks about how he just stopped being a Cubs fan back in 2000 after watching 'em run in 2 walks in the bottom of the 9th. I've repeatedly sworn off the Cubs many a time when they've pulled that crap, but Mr. Weasel seems to have made it stick. I didn't think it could be done.
He also raises a good argument on how Dusty Baker single-handedly destroyed one of the greatest pitching lineups of all time.
I don't always agree with him, but he is extremely well informed, and makes some damn fine points (at one point he even prognosticates the Yankees/Clemens deal).
If you're into the game (and have 15 minutes to kill) I'd highly recommend checking it out.

Does this signal a change in our friend? Are switching teams? I mean, in the baseball sense.

Nope. I'm far too retarded to ever move on to greener pastures.

Plus, My natural go-to would have to be the Nats - The one MLB team that makes the Cubs look awesome.

I'm screwed and I can accept that.
