Some things to look at…

September 29, 2008

Good thing the Cubs aren’t playing until Wednesday. Two stress-free days to recharge the batteries but that is not going to stop me from worrying about the Dodgers. Here are some players that play for the Dodgers that kill the Cubs everytime they step up to the plate against them:

Andre Ethier, Jeff Kent, Juan Pierre, Matt Kemp and Derek Lowe.

In addition to that, their bullpen is much better than ours.

This is going to be really hard but as baseball is in the postseason, anything is possible.

Buy a gun, put a bullet in it, put it up to your head and pull the trigger you stupid motherfucker.

You have been the best Cubs manager I have seen in my 22 years of living and probably the best any true Cubs fan has ever seen. You took this team from the cellar to one of the best teams in baseball. It took talent, skill and some luck.

If Chad Gaudin, Kevin Hart, Neal Cotts or Bob Howry are on the playoff roster, then do not bother going to the playoffs. Please save us the frustration and do not even show up.

Who is on the playoff roster?

September 21, 2008

We all know here that our starting rotation is pretty much set for the playoffs. However, the bullpen is a mess. I like what I am seeing from Randy Wells but MLB rules are that players must be on the 40-man roster by September 1st and his contract was purchased on the 9th so he cannot be on the playoff roster. So without further due, this is who SHOULD be on the roster:

Rotation: Zambrano, Dempster, Harden and Lilly

Bullpen: Marquis, Marshall, Gaudin, Samardjia, Marmol and Wood

Lineup: Soriano, Edmonds, DeRosa, Ramirez, Theriot, Fontenot, Lee and Soto

Bench: Johnson, Blanco, Ward, Cedeno, Hoffpauir, Fukudome and Pie

– I would put another pitcher on this staff but you figure there is no need for a fifth starter so that means there can be an extra bench player which is Pie. I think Pie is needed for defense in late innings. Unfortunately, there are not many options in the bullpen so I decided that an extra position player is a must.
