Garza, Benoit, same difference

Matt Garza The Chicago Sun-Times went big with its cover story the day after the Cubs traded for Tampa Bay's Matt Garza, running a full-page photo with the headline "BIG G." The problem is, the photo is of BIG B -- former Ray and current Tiger Joaquin Benoit (photo courtesy of the St. Petersburg Times ).

In fairness, the jersey name and number are not visible in the photo, and the two right-handers do have the same facial hair and are listed at almost the same height and weight.  But that's obviously not Garza (who is pictured on the right).

I know, I know, people who live in glass houses ...

This brings to mind the mishap concerning the photoshoot of America's Sexiest Athlete. A photographer was told to take pictures of the KC Chiefs QB. The photographer was not experienced nor particularly bright so he took pictures of the first KC QB he saw...Elvis Grbac. But he was supposed to tale picture of Rich Gannon..the starting QB. This mistake by the newspaper is not a big deal. Who told Garza and Benoit to grow weeds on their face?
Cubs fans need not apologize because the Brewers won't be making bringing much excitement while dwelling in the cellar.

Wrong sCrubbie!  Why anyone outside of Wisconsin could root for that three yards and a cloud of failure, but it sure isn`t me. Keep dreamin if your best hope is da Bears pal.  Watch em choke the chicken and lose to the Seasicks.

Hey Slammin you sure are funny.  Calling Cubs fans dumb when your post is a true work of english literature.  More then likely a cheesehead Wisconsin fan who saw his team get killed against TCU, get killed in CB against Illinois and will watch the Bears wipe the field with the Packers for a trip to the Super Bowl.  Effin loser.

Perfect work for drunken Cub$ fans who probably think the Big Z is "in shape."  Fat, Dumb & never winnin the World Series is no way to go through life.
