Interesting article. I agree:

I still don't understand why the only approach to the Cubbies by Epstein was a total gut job. With the resources at Epstein's disposal - one of the richest teams and owners in MLB, he couldn't have produced a rebuild AND a (potential) winning team this season?

And what's the timetable on this current Cubbie rebuild? 3 years? 5 years? If they don't win a World Series by then, what? - DrCrawdad 8/1/2012

This season has been successful for the Cubs in the long term plan. Do you agree with that? - Coopaloopa 8/14/2012
I disagreed then with Coopaloopa and apparently the Sun-Times writer does to.
