Do not tell me to calm down.

by

I am not going to calm down and no one on this site should be told that by anybody.

We are REAL Cubs fans. Not the 38,000 out of 40,000 rich business fuckers who pack Wrigley Field who do not know a damn thing about the Cubs. Not the ones who say “Go Cubs”, wear the apparel and yet, do not follow this team on a daily basis. We expect collapes at any moment. I am not saying the season is over. I am not saying the Cubs are going to fall. Going into September, they will have a 4.5 game lead on the Brewers. However, the Phillies have proved that they are a BETTER team than the Cubs. Like it or not, they are and it wouldn’t fucking surprise me if they run away with the NL title. As of right now, they are the best team in the league. They should of won the first two games rather easily and we got lucky winning them.

Even though the Cubs still have the best record in baseball, the fact of of the matter is that the Brewers are right on us STILL.

People come into my work and tell me to calm down when the Cubs are losing and some of these people do not know a damn thing about baseball. I am tired of it.

    .500 at home in the playoffs likely leads to losing the series. Pathetic that the Cubs couldn’t build on the momentum from the gifts they received in games 1 and 2. So many stranded baserunners the last two days. In the playoffs, you are only going to see a teams top 3 starters, so the runs will be even harder to come by. I don’t feel confident going into the playoffs with Dempster, Lilly, and Marquis/Marshall as the top 3. We’ve been waiting for Harden to get hurt-and let’s face it, he has made things much harder on himself throwing near 100 pitches in 5 innings so many times. Dempster’s pitch count is high-114 in 6 last time. Sabathia pitched a complete game today with 117 (although the Brewers are fucking stupid letting him pitch the 8th and 9th with a 7 run lead-fuck the one-hitter). Cubs are only 6-6 against a slightly better than .500 Houston team. Marquis vs Oswalt-not a good matchup. fuck this!

    Sabathia had a no-hitter going and it ended as a one-hitter. (So, that is probably why they let him go the 9 innings this time.) Many have probably read or heard that the Brewers are disputing the official scorer’s decision that he gave-up that hit. Instead they want it scored as an error committed by none other than Sabathia himself. Ha, ha, ha – How obnoxious and unfocused can you get?

    Over the next 6 games we’ll get a better read on whether this team is folding. The 4th place Astros have been winning and they have a better record than any NL West team. And then it’s Dusty’s Reds while the Brewers take-on the Mets and Padres. I don’t think I can handle folding to a team managed by Dusty Baker, but worry about that if/when it happens.

    I agree that the weekend portion of this series wasn’t what Cubs fans wanted, but hey that is baseball. I don’t understand however how the Cubs got lucky and won the first couple of games. Aramis Ramirez is incapable of hitting a homerun late. He is probably the best clutch hitter that the Cubs have. I truly expected him to hit a grand slam in that situation because he has done things like that over the past five years. Remember last years game against the Brewers where he crushed the pitch in the bottom of the ninth, that started the Cubs run to the top. Alfonso Soriano is also capable of winning games however he is just as likely to strike out as well. If the Cubs could have hit with men in scoring position this weekend they definitely would have won at least one of those games. There is no reason to panic that you split a series with a good team. Fro I am not telling you to calm down or anything close to it because I was yelling at the televison plenty of times this weekend, I just don’t necessarily agree with you that the Phillies are a better team than the Cubs.

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    I hear you on that cubsfaninAR. I am just getting that image that they are. They took four out of the seven games this year. They scored plenty of runs and we just did not execute in clutch situations the last two games. Historically, they have killed us. The Cubs have not won a series against this team since 2001. That is sad.

  5. genrebuster Says:

    I still remember Cubs-Diamondbacks post-season series last year. ‘Nuff said.

    IF the Cubs lose this series to Houston, I wouldn’t expect them to advance to a WS. And if that happens, I won’t be surprised if they back into the post-season, instead of peaking at the right time.

    The Brewers have been playing really well, even more impressive given that Ned Yost is the manager.

    Can you imagine Lou bitching about a “no-hitter” (like Yost is)? That would be expected of Dusty, of course.

    The Astros are making yet another late-season charge, all too familiar. Let’s hope the Cubs are motivated to beat them down this year. Anything less is unacceptable.

  6. Bonk Says:

    The 4.5-game lead isn’t a whole lot when you consider how tough the schedule gets this month. After the DisAstros and Reds, every team the Cubs face is good.

    However, I don’t put too much stock in the split. Marshall gave up all five runs, and Piniella only started him to give Z a rest. I’m fine with that. Lou has also given some other players rest the last few days.

    The hitting slumped a little this weekend, but it happens. Not saying I’m happy with a split, but the Cubs are still 9-4 during this 16-day stretch without an off day, which is pretty damn good.

    D-backs scare the fuck out of me. The Cubs have never been able to hit Johnson, and Webb and Haren are both awesome.

  7. armycubsfan Says:

    The Cubs went 20-8 in August. That was the best month of the season win/loss-wise. This is even with some periods of sleepy-offense and Zambrano’s dead-arm periods. So while I’m not telling anyone to calm down, I’m far from going into panic mode about this team. Here come the callups now, and there are some hot-hitters in that group. So no, I’m far from worried.

  8. erniesarmy Says:

    Damn straight FroDog, no one should be telling any Cub fan to “calm down.” The only one’s who say that are at BCB. And when the Cubs have another collapse down the stretch or in the postseason, they are the same dopes who say, “Oh, well, we should be better next year,” or “well that’s baseball, get em next year.”

    They’re the ones that make all of us a laughing stock…”LOVABLE LOSERS.”

  9. Fork Says:

    The Cubs have the best record in baseball

    Even when they lose, their pitching, for the most part, has been excellent.

    They will clinch a playoff spot bu the 15th or so, the division by the 20th.

    I’ve been a Cub fan since 1967.

    Calm down.

  10. genrebuster Says:

    “The Cubs have the best record in baseball”?

    So what.

    They haven’t been to a World Series in your lifetime, unless you were born between 1908 and 1945.

    baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  11. Jon Says:

    Calm down.

  12. RV Says:

    Fro Dog is providing a valuable service here, a gathering place for fans who clearly have never watched a game of baseball.

  13. chucky Says:

    I’ll calm down….. right AFTER the Cubs win the fucking World Series. If you don’t agree, then KISS MY ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Jon Says:

    No team that has ever lost more than 2 games in a row has ever made it to the World Series. That’s a fact as sure as Ty Wiggington has hit all 600 of his career home runs against the Cubs THIS SEASON ALONE.

    That guy just kills us.

  15. Chucky Says:

    And take it down town and PRINT IT

  16. CT Says:

    The Cubs will never win a World Series, Fork. Because they haven’t since 1908.

    “They haven’t been to a World Series in your lifetime, unless you were born between 1908 and 1945.”

    I’m not sure what your point is here. But if you were born in 1907, the Cubs went to the WS in your lifetime too. In fact, if you were born in 1905 and are still living, the Cubs have been to the WS a shit ton during you lifetime, you spoiled bastard.

    I can’t decide which is worse, you guys or the BCBers. It’s pretty close.

    But, if the Cubs go on to win the World Series this year, you can tell your children how you spent the summer of ’08 curled up in the fetal position, wallowing in a pool of your own urine.

  17. The Ghost of Leo Durocher Says:

    CT, the BCBers really miss you…hurry back but don’t be a stranger!

  18. morpheus Says:

    For the record… I’m not sure that what the Cubs have done over the past 100 years have any bearing at all on their performance this year. In fact, I’m pretty sure that those two periods have little to do with each other.

  19. genrebuster Says:

    Sorry if my point wasn’t clear, I could have done a better job phrasing it. Sorry Mitch!

    OK, let’s see if we can all wrap our minds around this:

    Cub fans born AFTER 1945–and STILL LIVING–have yet to see the Cubs appear in a World Series.

    As somebody that has watched many baseball games, I find that pretty pathetic, especially for a “major market” team.

    “Spoiled bastard”? My my…how grownup! Have we struck a nerve here? baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Trust me: Many, many people will feel better about the Cubs if they win a World Series.

  20. genrebuster Says:

    Morpheus, of course you are correct. That’s why they play game…and why we continue to watch.

    Also, I was wondering if “DOOM!” means anything to you 😉

  21. genrebuster Says:

    uhhh…”the game”, sorry again Mitch.

  22. morpheus Says:

    Ha, genre… DOOOOOOMM!!!!!!! indeed!

  23. genrebuster Says:

    wtf…..”Bleed Grizzly Pink”?!?!?!?!

    EXCELLENT!

  24. jf Says:

    Fork, so you’ve been a Cub fan since 1967. My condolences because, quite frankly, this game is more fun when you win. You should’ve picked another team. You didn’t mention how old you were in 67′, but sometimes kids don’t know any better.

    CT, the answers to your questions are:
    1. BCB – BCBers are worse than us guys.
    2. We’ve been having a little “fun” here just being fans of a franchise that has somehow not managed to win a WS title since 1908. While not philosophical clones of each other, that’s the point. There is no logic and there are no excuses (no good reasons) for this major market team to fail after having 98 chances since the last to win it all. I’m sure most of us think the Cubs have a good shot at it this year, but we’ll believe it when it happens. For the time being, it’s been 100 years (believe that).

  25. Bonk Says:

    Fro – By the way, I want to congratulate you. That’s the first time in four years the word “losing” has been spelled correctly in the header of a FDB thread.

  26. erniesarmy Says:

    Fork –

    I’ve been a Cub fan since 1964. I was 19 when they blew it in 1969. So don’t tell me to calm down. I’ve been through all five Cub meltdowns (1969; 1984; 1989; 1998; 2003), so I have personally witnessed this pathetic franchise blow one opportunity after another.

    For that reason alone, the Cubs are more likely to blow this lead than any other baseball team in the history of MLB. It will take a huge effort from some very strong willed personalities to win ballgames, and overcome the psychological pressure of 100 years of failure. When they get to the WS, then we can talk about a new era. Until then, stuff it!! The sheepie are all over at BCB.

  27. erniesarmy Says:

    Hey Fro, somebody must have left the gate on the corral open, I smell sheep…..whew.

  28. chucky Says:

    Smells more like jackasses to me.

  29. Irish Yeti Says:

    “I’m the only motherfucker online who doesn’t attack anyone who hasn’t attacked me first. Go through the history of this blog… try and find an exception to what I just wrote.”

    Are you sure about that?

    And do you have a different line besides “It takes your mother 9 months to shit”?

    I do like how you explained the joke twice in about a 10 day span. If this site is one that everyone reads, then they wouldn’t need to have that joke explained.

    Also….

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
