Flub Cans - 07/23/08 07:54 AM

Are the Cubs done yet? Alright, maybe it is toon soon to give up but funny how a team can have the best record in their league and most people realize they are in trouble. August is not too tough of a schedule so they will hang around but once September 9th hits - they will fall fast. Sucks to be a Flubs fan.

Re: Flub Cans - 07/23/08 08:14 AM

the chubs are just setting the stage for another colossal failure...or, as a friend of mine from alabama would say "a good 'ole fashion come apart"

gutter--why wait til september 9th?? we have sets with houston and cinci before the nightmare stretch...might as well strike while the iron is hot...fcukers!!!

Including and after September 9th. 3 in STL, 3 at home against MIL, then 3 vs STL, 4 in NYM, and then 3 in MIL.

Yeah - and if St. Louis had any sort of a bullpen - they'd be dangerous.

It's July. Long season. Then again, it is the Flubs we're talking about...

I dunno ...

but a good buddy of mine and I have already said if it is a Cubs/Rays World Series, we're getting there!

Don't know how, but we're getting there.

He grew up on the Southside, but he's a Cubs fan.

Getting where? Tampon or Shicago? No way you get a ticket in Chicago for under 750 bucks.

Re: Flub Cans - 07/23/08 05:08 PM

You have surprised me enough that I have learned never to be surprised by what you can and have accomplished. Let's hope both teams make it to the Series and then we can worry about how we get in.

Re: Flub Cans - 07/24/08 08:46 AM

Notice this response?

If Bartman takes $25K to show up and sign an autograph, do you think Kirk Heinrich would take an extra $2 mil and pass a ball?

Bartman is screwed. If he doesn't show up then he will be slammed for not wanting to help a charity? If he does show up, he is going to get slammed just for showing up. I can fully admit to being someone who was chanting "azzhole" when it happended but looking back on it, he did exactly what most people would have done IN THE MOMENT. I am tired of the media saying that if you are a real and knowledgable fan of course you try to back away and let Alou catch the ball. I say Bullshet!!!!

Bartman turns down $25,000 offer to sign photo of infamous play

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Steve Bartman has refused yet another offer to cash in on the moment he became the most famous -- or infamous -- Chicago Cubs fan in history.

Bartman friend Frank Murtha says that Bartman won't accept an offer of $25,000. For the money, all Bartman would have to do is attend the National Sports Collectors Convention in Rosemont and autograph a photograph taken of when he tipped a foul ball that seemed destined for Cubs' outfielder Moises Alou's glove during a 2003 playoff game with the Florida Marlins.

Bartman was vilified by Cubs fans, who thought that he helped prevent the team from reaching the World Series. Alou has made conflicting statement on whether he would have caught the ball.

Bartman has declined all offers to appear or make money off his brush with fame.

Bartman is still alive and living in Illinois?

I'm surprised he didn't move to Iceland and change his name to Baldur ... or just hang himself, one or the other!

What a horrible article. Bartmann did not have anything to do with the Cubs not going to the World Series. And yet that article cements it as fact.

Blame the shortstop, who booted the next play instead of turning an inning-ending double play.

Blame Dusty Baker for not inserting Kerry Wood late in Game 6.

Typical Cubs fans crap. Can't take responsibility so blame as many things - goat, black cat, Bartmann - as possible.

easy chikn...i am a "typical" cubs fan and i blame no one but the players, management and staff. i dont want to speak for everyone here, however, i think more often than not cubs fans realize it was not the fault of bartman, rather their (my) team for the collapse, and subsequent failure...

Fukudome sucks nuts. Sit his ass. Pitchers have figured him out. He is worse than Shawon Dunston when he constantly chased balls low and away. Sayonara home slice.

Re: Hawklin - No go on Bartman - 07/25/08 04:25 PM

while we're on the subject of cutting dead weight, can we PLEASE get rid of len kasper. he has got to be the biggest milquetoast a$$clown in broadcasting...well, second biggest...mccarver easily takes the cake in terms of baseball guys. good god, i didn't think it could get any worse for the cubs than chip caray, then along comes kasper...nothing new here though...move along...

Nice effort - 07/25/08 05:03 PM

DONE!!!!!!!! Wonder what kind of odds I can get that they play under .500 ball the rest of the way? It's a shame because they are getting some great starting pitching but their relievers and their bats have blown turkey sausages. Time to tinker around Lew. After the weekend you will be fighting for the Wild Card.

In the World of Suckdom, Kasper can't hold a candle to Ron Santo.

Sorry. It had to be said.

By the way, my three year old will be experiencing her first Cubs game tomorrow afternoon.
Posted by: larryb

Re: Hawklin - No go on Bartman - 07/25/08 05:18 PM

chikn - Ron Santo is painful to listen to. One day I had my Mother in the car and we were listening to a game. My Mother thought he was horrible and she doesn't know the difference between him and a young Jack Buck or Vin Scully.

Hope your daughter enjoys herself. Also hope she doesn't have to experience her first Wrigley Field Mens Room visit.

The kid's stuff is flat out nasty. He was a starter in the minors. Maybe the Cubs can come clean about Wood instead of feeding us the usual crap about how he has had a blister for 3 weeks.

I thought he was supposed to back tomorrow? Hope they don't send Smardz back to the minors, would like to see him hang around. We def. need Wood to keep it going though.

Wonder how he got the blister?

Posted by: chiknbut

Re: Hawklin - No go on Bartman - 07/29/08 12:23 PM


I think the blister is on his throwing hand - or in this case, his picking hand. Not likely due to finger picking the guitar - he looks like a pick man.

Anyway, Smardz ain't going nowhere. He's already a fan favorite. But it will only take a few weeks before the rest of the league has him scouted. He's very young and appears quite wild at times. But he definitely has a presence. And the Bears could use him right now, too.

And by the way, my youngest made it through 10 innings Saturday and then fell asleep. She had a pretty nice time. So did I.

As long as I say the Cubs are done they play well and vice versa. Next time I say the Cubs will get to the World Series they will lose 5 in a row. I will keep on track and say they are done.

Posted by: larryb

Re: Need to keep on track - 07/30/08 09:12 AM

Well maybe the Brewers will realize there is another team in their division who can play ball. Not a good mental message for the Brewers when their two aces get beat at home in back to back games by the team they are trying to overtake.

Lots of games to still be played. Cubs can win the divison by 10 games or be out of it by mid to late August. We shall see.
Posted by: stevemize

Re: Need to keep on track - 07/30/08 09:15 AM

I believe it will remain close to the finish, with St. Louis not disappearing from either team's rear view mirror.
Posted by: digitalkookie

Re: Need to keep on track - 07/30/08 09:19 AM

good points ^^^ st louis will remain a factor, and as annoying as always...can never count them out of it.

and yes gutter, very true...this is the cubs we are talking about. you and i (and everyone else) have witnessed some monumental collapses over the years. if they can maintain their confidence and continue doing the little things it takes to win ball games, they SHOULD have no problems taking the division

Re: Need to keep on track - 07/30/08 09:34 AM

I am enjoying the race between the Cubs and Brewers I just hope they don't forget about the f'ing Cardinals and let them sneak up on them. That would make me ill.

Re: Nice effort - 08/04/08 08:36 AM

So Cubs fans shouldn't be happy and boast that their team has the best record in the NL? Or should they not come back down to reality when they lose and realize this is the Cubs that they support? Maybe it's both or maybe it's neither. I am confused - remember I am a Cubs fan and most of us are confused souls.
Posted by: Hawklin

Re: Nice effort - 08/04/08 02:51 PM

Im talking about the back and forth opionion of the team.

Same thing when the Bears lose their first game. Best in the world to the worst overnight.

Guess I should blame the media for instilling it in the fans.
Posted by: chiknbut

Re: Nice effort - 08/04/08 06:19 PM


No, just blame typical Cubs fans like Gutter.

Hey Gutter, when do they hand out "We're in First In August" rings?
Posted by: larryb

Re: Nice effort - 08/05/08 07:11 AM

Hawklin - As usual you really do get it. Very true what you say.

chikn - No rings to be handed out in August but tell me how it felt to have the Sox fall out of first place? I have been the same way about the Sox as I have the Cubs. A month ago I thought the Sox were going to the World Series. No Joke. I even will continue to say (well maybe not any more since their starting pitching is pretty much junk) that the Sox may be better than the Cubs.
Posted by: chiknbut

Re: Nice effort - 08/05/08 01:27 PM


The Sox falling out of first place in the first week of August means almost the same as the Cubs in first place at the same time.

Not much.

I know White Sox fans are just as bad, but I'm trying to encourage a "stop the hate" movement. It's stilly. It reminds me of the Illinois posters from several years ago who weren't happy just being in the national title game in basketball. They needed something else to bitch about - namely losing the good looking girlfriend in Bill Self.

Something very special going on in Chicago. I just want to make sure you don't miss it.

Just checked the newspaper, Gutter. Swisher's dinger in the 13th puts the Sox back in first play by a game over the Twinkies.

Still early. Still early.
Posted by: larryb

Re: Nice effort - 08/07/08 07:10 AM

chikn - Sox 2-0 with out Ozzie at the helm this year. What to make of that?

I admit yesterday when Marquis looked like crap early that I figured the Flubs were done for the day. Then Cecil Cooper proved he was a brain dead idiot and let Backe give up one of the worst innings I have ever seen a Pitcher pitch with out EVER getting anyone up in his Bull Pen. TYhe Astros conceided the game midway in the 4th innning. If I was an Astros player, I would have told my manager that he is an ass hole for giving away a game.

As far as the Sox game, zzzzzzz. Nice to see they got a decent performance from a starter. If they could get as many decent starts from their Pitchers as the Cubs do - they would win the World Series.
Posted by: chiknbut

Re: Nice effort - 08/07/08 10:07 AM


Was thinking about you last night while watching the Sox game. Great first inning and then pretty much a snooze the rest of the way. Made for a pretty long day, huh?

Speaking of leaving a pitcher in, Verlander through 130 pitches last night and was great to the end. One bad pitch (in the first) and it cost him.

Incidentally, Joey Cora is 3-0 as interim manager. Expect him to get a head job sometime in the off season.

Red Sox in town this weekend. I don't hold out too much hope.

It was a long day but since I am not a drinker I felt pretty good. Two years ago I thought Verlander would win a Cy Young at some point in his career. last night he was good but not great.

Cora and Ozzie to me are almost one in the same. Both have good baseball minds and really understand the game but are capable of doing the insane. During the Cubs game they played the radio broadcast. I am amazed that a guy like Ron Santo really doesn't have a clue about the game sometimes. He was saying things that were humorous. Such as, they are pitching around him when the count was 3-0 and then when it went to 3-2 he said, well obviously they are not pitching around him.

Red Sox / White Sox may be an ACLS preview. Let's hope so.

nice finish to the double header as well...tonight, chubs go for their first season sweep vs braves since 2000. cant seem to gain any ground on the milk though...ever since the "little" fielder threw his dugout tantrum, they have been on fire...go figure. 6 games to go against them (all in the final two weeks of the season), should make for an interesting finish to say the least!!!!!
Posted by: chiknbut

Re: Nice effort - 08/14/08 12:52 PM


Pretty interesting that the guy who essentially quit on his first team and pretty much gave up on his season (and maybe career) is leading the pack for Comeback Player honors.

I think that speaks volumes to the guy's character. He's having a terrific season, though. Gotta give Hendry credit for this one.

Big trouble brewing in Flubbie land. Zambrano may be done for the year and the Flubs are starting to have some doubts they are "all that". I know I am in the minority when I say this but I really don't have a strong desire to see the Flubs make the Playoffs. Why? I don't care to see them not make the World Series YET AGAIN. I fully expect the Cubs to lose in the NLCS. [censored] happens and then you are a Flubs fan. Or should I say your a Flubs fan and then [censored] happens?

dempster can't get it done at wrigley, zambrano missed his MRI and is out indefinitely, harden has a start pushed back due to "normal" soreness in his throwing arm, sean marshall joins the rotation, kerry wood got rocked for a 2 run dinger in extra innings, all while the cubs lose five straight... yup...sounds like things are going according to plan on the northside...
