I know the Cubs are bad, and on pace for yada, yada, yada...but five years? What an unbelievably stupid comment to make...longer than five years...that is an eternity in modern sports...in any sport...How could you even begin to quantify that statement with any kind of logic? All of the variables that factor in...money, development, injuries and misfortune to your competitors...
Listen, I am not saying they will be a play-off team next year(although I wouold not be surprised at all to see them competitive)...but sitting here on June 16th 2012, you are going to tell me they aren't going to be good until after 2017?
Please retire this arrogant, pompous, average talent, I was lucky Steve Carlton refused to have anyone else catch him but me...douchebag.

I know the Cubs are going to lose 90+ games. Losses don't bother me so much. Every team loses and the Cubs will lose more often than most.
Losing when they play on Fox is excruciating. Even winning leaves me feeling kind of empty. These two guys just make everything worse.

Five years to what, Tim? A .500 team? A playoff contender? A World Series? A perennial .500 team? A perennial playoff contender? What?
Five years for a perennial playoff contender is reasonable, but mostly because you would have had to start making some playoffs already to be considered a perennial contender.
