    Default Official Cubs Thread

    For no other reason than this thread should have been started long before the Official Reds Thread was ever dreamed up.

    This comes at a bad time, given last night's performance against the Reds. I should have started it on Monday night. Liliy was great last night, however. Let's just hope he's the 2007 Lily, and not so much of the 2008 version.

    I was hoping my Gregg as closer thread would be the start to a good Cubs thread. Guess not.

    Let's revisit that. Are we still to believe that Lou chose Gregg over Marmol or is there something else to it? I can't believe that you'd leave such a great pitcher in the set up role, just to have Gregg blow it in the 9th. Well, whatever.

    You are just looking for a way to get some one-on-one time with MarkGrace. I see right through you. In 2 months when the Cubs are out of the pennant race and MG has lost his will to post about them, I imagine you'll start an official Radiohead thread.

    Not sure what's going on, but Gregg can't last much longer. He's just not throwing well.

    Speaking of Radiohead and the Cubs, My Boys gave them a shout out the other day. My Boys is a show on TBS about a female sportswriter that covers the Chicago Cubs. On an episode the other night, she and her friends were going to participate in the Decathlon, which among them was a competition they had set up where they play ten different board games. After the teams are divided, one of the guys starts trash talking about how much better their team is than the other, and how they are going to hammer them in the competition. The dialogue was this:

    ANDY: The Decathlon is on! It's the Dream Team vs. Angola, Cheese Nips vs. Cheez-Its, Godfather vs. Godfather III, Radiohead vs. Coldplay...

    BOBBY: "What's wrong with Coldplay?"

    BRENDAN: "Dude, if you even have to ask..."

    Anyway, made me laugh.

    Actually, I really like My Boys. Andy is the best character by far, I love Jim Gaffigan. I saw part of that episode, but I missed the Radiohead comment. My wife, who would not rewind it for me, at least cared enough to do her own version of the Joke so I could enjoy the smugness that comes with being a Radiohead fan.

    Since Harden has been a Cubs, he's given up very few hits; but an insane % of them seem to be HRs.

    Big Z was a triple shy of becoming the first pitcher to ever hit for the cycle. Dude can rake for a pitcher.

    The thing that really pisses me off about the whole bartman thing is the fact that Moses Alou was such a baby after the play. Seriously his crying like a baby was pathetic.

    The cubs didnt lose that game due to bartman. They lost that came because alex gonzalez botched an easy double play and Dusty Baker is such a shitty manager.

    Lets see Dusty Baker you have a 23 year old pitcher in the biggest game in his life. You are in the 8th inning winning. Your shortstop botches an easy double play. Your left fielder acts like a a whiny little girl because a fan caught a ball that was in the stands. What do you do? you sit there and chew on your stupid toothpick. Here is an idea. Why don't you go out to the mound and settle down your pitcher?

    Burn in hell Dusty Baker

    Dusty Baker is a loyal Dodger. His World Series days were played in LA.

    He now is on a secret mission on behalf of the Dodgers to destroy every other NL franchise. Why do you think he went straight up to SF? He did a wonderful job with the Giants, teasing the fanbase with a World Series trip (LOL!), then tormented the Cubs with a sniff of the World Series. Now he will continue to work his magic with the Reds, except this time, he will take the old fashioned approach of missing the playoffs entirely.

    Cubs just got Piniero'd. Cards win 3-0, JP pitches a CG shutout in 95 pitches.

    95 pitches? Nice.

    Two in a row over the Cubbies! Carpenter with the win. The pitching staff is doing a great job this series.

    Two runs in the last four games. Z comes off the DL, Harden goes onto the DL. Love it.

    I did get to see them break the streak on Tuesday night, left at the rain delay and was glad they called it, mainly because it assured the win. Glad to see they finally won a 2-1 game today, especially against LA.

    Cubs weren't swinging it much either in the first two games.
