Derek Lee hits a run in. Micah hits a home run and a funky infield single makes it 4 – 0 going into the top of the ninth for the Cubs. But, it’s amazing how little time it takes to take a way a win from a pitcher who’s pitched two really good games, only to have the bull pen F*CK it up in the final inning or so.
Yeah, Kevin Gregg. You are a waste of talent that we traded away for because of Kerry Wood wasn’t resigned. They have to sit your *** because of your knee. They didn’t sign WOODY because they didn’t want a long deal. (Bet you’re re-thinking that decision—as I am by the way–Mr. Hendry.)
Lou didn’t managed this game for ****. The minute Gregg gave up the home run, you should have had someone tossing in the bullpen. That way if he gave up another hit or a home run you could have yanked Gregg’s butt and throw him into the dugout. And after that third hit, I definitely would have yanked him by the shirt collar.
Heilman came out and did what he had to do to keep it from going completely out of control. And if it wasn’t for a bad throw…
Well.. just be thankful that’s still only a 1/2 game and not a game like it could have been.
The once hearlded centerfielder Felix Pie and picther Rich Hill days are number as Chicago Cubs if they cannot pull their act together. Both players out out of options both in the bigs, and in general.
On Wednesday, Cubs GM Jim Hendry made it clear that the team will not wait for Pie and Hill to figure out how to play in the big leagues.
With the addition of Joey Gaithright, Pie’s days are numbered as a Cub.
The Cubs have pulled out the Jake Peavy sweepstakes. Cubs GM Jim Hendry said he had more important things to work out—like getting a left handed bat.
On Wednesday, MLB announced that the game for the Cubs-Astros series would be moved up to 1:05 p.m. (CDT) because of Hurricane Ike. The next day, they decided to play a double header on Sunday with the final game on Monday.
Are you frakking kidding me? Galveston, along with Houston had a big huge bullseye on their heads with Ike moving in over the weekend.
This is what the GM of the Astros had to say:
“This could be the biggest series in the history of this season,” McLane told the Houston Chronicle. “And the fans would be a tremendously inspirational force for our players. And I didn’t want our players to be away from their families.
Your fans? You dumba$$. Your city just got hammered by a category 2 hurricane. Over three million people are without power. Homes have been swept out to sea. There’s probably deaths and you’re worried about keeping your fans happy?
Notice to Astros fans: Your GM is the biggest jerk on the face of the freaking planet.
What moron in their right mind would hold out hope that a series would be played just one day after a major hurricane.
What the hell is this world coming too.
I don’t blame the Cubs for being mad. I don’t blame Hendry for being pissed off. I’m pissed off.
HOUSTON—THIS IS WAR! I hope you lose the next 10 games and make the wild-card unattainable for this tom foolery! You could have swept the Cubs and hoped that Philly beat the Brewers and you’d be tied for the wild card.
But no! Your GM had to put the power of the almighty dollar in the face of human suffering. What a swell guy!
