I might be the only fan here, but that's ok. Pretty sick of seeing the Reds thread. Cubs vs Reds today. Big game this early in the season. Like 5 teams have a shot in the central. Cubs have two series against the Reds and a series against the Cards. This is a huge stretch. Good thing Carlos Pena's bat has come alive.

What do you mean? Do I believe in curses? No. Do I blame Bartman? Nope. Cubs had a lot of chances to close that series out. Do I sit in the bleachers and get drunk? ABSOLUTELY!

I dont enjoys cinnics park but it was fun when i went there. I am sitting in 400 on tuesday paid $4 for the tixs on stub hub. I havent sat outside the bleachers since 08 playoffs when i sat front row and watched us lose by 10 vs the Dodgers. Once Wells and Cashner get healthy we should be aright. But Russel blows and should be sent down ASAP. Plus we dont have a true 3 hitter which really hurts. Cant wait till school gets out i will be at Wrigley once a week.

I named by dog Wrigley Banks after the Cubs.

I dont know why we dont give Tony Campana a start or two we need more speed and he brings that. We literaly have no speed besides him. I still have little faith in this team defense isnt gonna get better any time soon we may start hitting better but i dont know if it is enoght.

that would be really stupid Cashner just reinjured his arm but Wells should be back in the next few weeks. When Cashner gets healthy coleman will go back to the minors.

H e's been really good two out of his last three starts against two of the best teams in the ML ( cin and fl ). Doug davis needs to go for sure. If coleman continues to be solid they can put Cashner back in the pin.

4 man rotation would just be stupid when wells gets healthy we will be fine. Obviously Davis is just here untill Wells is back that is a given. Then when Cashner gets healthy Casey will ethier go to the minors or a LR out of the pen.


Glad to see the Red soxs playing like the Cubs tonight. Sori is an idiot and cant run the bases lol. I just dont get why we cant play smarter and at least run the bases well.

Rami gets my game ball for toinght great AB in the 8th.

Tomorrow im pretty sure Russel is starting :mad:

Its gonna be him or Shark both teams are gonna have spot starters. He is really the only option he sucks but he is all we have. I only expect him to go 3innings. My poor sister went to go see Russel start a few weeks back. She wanted me to go but i said no way in hell i am gonna go see Russel pitch. It was 4-0 after the 2nd lol. She lives in chicago so it wasnt that bad for her. But no way i am driving to chicago to see Russel.


The Red Sox are just playing like the Cubs do tonight

I swear i have watched 40gms this year and we play like they have tonight 95% of the time. Bad defense and bad base running and poor hitting.

I know the Tigers were allegedly among a few teams showing interest in Jeff Baker only to have Jim Hendry inexplicably state he wasn't trading Baker. Because apparently Hendry is retarded.

Fonso is willing to waive his no trade clause (to bad no one wants him)


Henery is a moron he gives everyone a no trade clause and called Sean Marshall "untouchable" if I was him I would trade every player I can besides Castro and rebulid.

while im disappointed in the season. I am excited by what we did in the draft. The Ricketts seem like they are commitment to player development a much needed change.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/ct-spt-0816-cubs-bits--20110816,0,345983.story

We signed 34 player and 9 of the top 10 and some how signed Dillon Maples who is 1st round talent that we got in the 14th round. We had to pay him like a 1st rounder though.

The Ricketts spent double what was spent last year in the draft which is much needed our farm system is terrible.

I can now watch the team I haven't watch the team since early in the season. I vowed not to watch until that clown is gone.


Thank you Ricketts great draft then fire the clown bravo


And Ricketts wants a guy focused on the farm system and more statistical our OBP has always been terrible under Jim.
