Larry Rothschild is Not Interested in Your Advice


I don’t know if this is legitimate, particularly since it came from TDubbs (thanks for the tip), but- Well, just read the e-mail TDubbs got from a friend:

Well,

I’ve been calling Rothschild once a month for over a year. He never answers, but I always leave a message. Sometimes its Cubs related, but other times its not (happy thanksgiving larry!, etc.). I’m nice in the voicemails and I always act like we know each other.

Back in March I had ACL sugery. It was performed by the Cubs doctor (Dr. Gryzlo). Last Thursday I had a follow up appointment. While I was there I asked him for a status on Zambrano. He told me he’d be fine.

After the appointment with Grzylo I called Rothschild to let him know how we should handle Zambrano. I told him we have a comfortable lead in the central and we shouldn’t rush him back. I also told him to call me if he wanted to talk about it. Apparently, he wanted to talk about it, because he called me about an hour later.

I will have attached the voicemail. I’d classify Larry’s tone as “angry”

Here is the voice mail. Now, why the hell anyone outside of the four-letter site would feel entitled or obligated to call Cubs personnel and make suggestions as to what is best for the team is beyond me, but it sure SOUNDS like Rothschild. What do you guys think?

    I think TDubbs needs to stop using the “friend” excuse.

    P.S., right on Larry. Who the fuck calls a Cub coach with advice on how to handle a pitcher? Larry Rothschild just got cooler in my book.

    I love that. We have a guy at work who claims to be friends with Mike Shanahan and that he’d call Mike during the week to talk about the Broncos’ upcoming games. So we started acting like a) we believed him and b) that he could call Shanahan on the sidelines during games. So we’d say stuff like, “Hey Chuck, why did you and Mike go for it on that fourth down? You guys really fucked the Broncos with that screen pass.” He’d act irritated, but you could tell he thought we really thought he had access to Shanahan during games and he loved it. What a fucking delusional jackass.

    Awesome! Can someone call and offer suggestions for Ted Lilly pitching in that fucking band box in Philly?

    I couldn’t agree more. IF it is really Rothschild, the dude calling him deserves way worse than he got. I wonder what his NSBB screen name is.

    The e-mail is priceless. I love its tone. “So I stalked this semi-famous dude for a year or so. Left him messages. Pretended we knew each other. Told him how to do his job. Then finally, he calls me and he’s all pissed off. What’s the deal with that? What a weirdo!”

    I can’t wait for the “Larry Rothschild ironing naked in his hotel room” movie to hit the internets.

    Is it just me or does Larry not look at least a slight bit like Bee Arthur in that shot? It is a flattering angle though, in that you cannot see the beastly hump on his upper back/neck.

    I have a newfound appreciation for Larry Rothschild, after telling that douchenozzle to leave him the hell alone.

    I will be less quick to gripe the next time he waits until one of our relievers has given up two runs before getting his ass up and making a trip to the mound…
