Errors, errors, errors and more errors. That's what.
As you might have heard Monday, former Cubs pitcher Geremi Gonzalez, 33, was struck by lightning and killed on a Venezuelan beach. Despite his 11-win rookie season as a Cub in 1997, I'll always remember Gonzalez for what he did while a member of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Normally, I enjoy a good Ozzie Guillen tirade. But the latest rant left me shaking my head in dismay.
