One of the uglier stories of last week (when this forum was on "down time") involved the emails from within involving Ricketts family, owners of the Cubs, were revealed to contain disparaging remarks about certain groups. GM Theo Epstein was not too pleased, and I imagine neither was a lot of the fan base. Coupled with other issues carrying over from last season, damage control was on the agenda on the eve of spring training.

Thoughts?

If I were a Cubs fan I would be outraged! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I am already and I am a Padres fan. I cannot imagine how I would feel if I were a Cubs fan who happened to be Muslim.
