Welcome Back to Chicago…Johnnie B. Baker


It must make Dustys stomach turn every time he enters “The Friendly Confines”. The last two seasons as Cub manager was a nightmare for not only him, but all of us also. It’s good that he’s only invited for a few days at a time, then he can go away for a while. It must make Dusty and that pisshead Marty Brennaman miserable to come to Chicago. Hope you enjoy your weekend, boys.

  2. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    I think this is what the team is lacking…

    I want to repeat this from the other thread –

    Irish Yeti & Dr. Nosepicker –

    “My point would be that he’s not as horrible as you guys claim. Do I really need to go back and point out every post that you guys said he sucked?”

    Chucky –

    “How the fuck can anybody defend this asshole. He’s the fucking closer, coming in with a 5 run lead and he’s shitting the bed. Guess it’s a good thing it’s not a one run lead.”

    I think I’ll take Churcky over those two pathetic clowns that actually think Kevin Gregg is a legitimate closer.

    Cubs finish in 4th place this year!

    Hey, Sheepie…baaaaaaaaaaaabaaaaaaaaaabaaaaaaaaaaa

  4. erniesarmy Says:

    Angel Guzman today: 11 pitches, 8 strikes, 2.45 era.

    I would like to see him be the closer.

    Trade Gregg for a bat, and have Guzman close.

  5. Dave Says:

    Gregg has converted 20 of 23 save opportunities. But yes Guzman is amazing, and probably a better closer. Marmol is getting it together too after striking out the side today. Soriano was 3 for 4 today as well. I don’t think fourth place is gonna be what the Cubs are going to get. They have only lost 2 games since the all star break. If anything this team could be identical to the 2003 squad if you look at the trends.

    I know I have a lot of positive things to say about the team right now. But the fact still remains that the garbage still needs to be taken out. I am optimistic enough to say that 4th place won’t happen however.

    Hi Dave –

    “I am optimistic enough to say that 4th place won’t happen however.”


    Well, you could be right, but I’m going to stick with my prediction. Why?

    1) Because they’re the Cubs (That reason alone trumps everything else)
    2) They still need another bat, and they haven’t proven they can hit consistently yet.
    3) Gregg as closer.
    4) I don’t trust Dempster, and Lilly may be down for a long time.

    But, we shall see.

    Fire Hendry! Tick Tock

  7. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    If Mike D. is reading this, please take notes on the following:

    Notice that the last post was Erniesarmy disagreeing with what Dave said. Look how he posted it too. Did you read anywhere where Ernie said he is right and Dave is wrong? Did you see Ernie posting a piss-poor comment towards him? Oh that’s right. We aren’t sheeple here.

    But if I to agree with Ernie though, I said a couple months ago that I will be laughing when this team finishes in 4th. The offense cannot be consistent and that bullpen is suspect.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    Yes, we don’t always agree here (the refugees from the “old” site)…but we mostly get along.

    Dave, if this team is indeed “identical to the 2003 squad”, then they will make the playoffs. Supposing that happens, I hope Lou handles a “Bartman-type incident” better than the toothpick chomping fool did….because the Cubs most certainly would have played in a WS in 2003 had Dusty acted like a leader…but as we saw and know, Johnnie B. Badde was clueless…

    The problem is, you could say the same about Lou in the playoffs last year…at least it seemed that way to me.

    Lou HAS been talking some shit lately and I for one welcome that, at least it’s ENTERTAINING (are you enjoying it, MLB?). The players will either respond positively…or not. There’s nothing to lose (that’s worth anything)…

    Chicago Tribune –

    Does Soto need to get in better condition to avoid injuries like his oblique strain?

    “No, he’s naturally a big-boned guy,” Hendry said. “I don’t think his weight is any different than last year when he won [ National League] Rookie of the Year. He came to camp in real good shape, gained a few pounds after the [ World Baseball Classic]. He’s never going to be tall and skinny, but he’s not overweight.”

    The story was originally about a rumor that the Tigers were interested in trading for Bradley, and Hendry squelched the rumor. If the Tigers want this fool, then give him to them! Wrap him in giftwrapping paper, and send him via Federal Express!

    Yeah, Hendry, Soto is “big boned” not fat. HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!

    Will some body fire this clown and put him out of his misery!

  10. chucky Says:

    Erniesarmy….”Will some body fire this clown and put him out of his misery!”

    Screw his misery. Shit-can his ass and put him out of OUR goddamned misery!!!!

    All joking aside, I didn’t see the article. Were they really interested in Bradley? And did Moe really squelch it? If that is all true, he shouldn’t just be fired. I’d say 5- 10 years in a maximum security prison would be in order.


  11. erniesarmy Says:

    Chucky –

    No, that is what the Tribune said – if they can be trusted – Detroit was interested in Bradley, and Bradley got wind of it. Apparently, Hendry didn’t want Bradley to know about it, or something like that.

    Anyway, 5 to 10 in Joliet would be fine with me. Hendry should be locked up just on the basic principles.

  12. genrebuster Says:

    Fire Jim Hendry.


  13. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:


    5-10 years in Joliet? You are being too kind.

    Let him go to Statesville.

  14. Dave Says:

    There seems to be some truth to a trade rumor of Bradley to the Tigers. What could happen is trading MB for Magglio Ordonez. It would be player for player and dumped salary for dumped salary. And who knows, a change of scenery for both of them could be just what the doctor ordered.

    Has anyone ever thought this? Mags in Cub blue?

  15. erniesarmy Says:

    “Has anyone ever thought this? Mags in Cub blue?”

    I don’t care if it was Mott the Hoople, just as long as we get rid of Bradley!

  16. Sheep Boy Says:

    Cubs in sole possession of first place, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    18 walks for Bradley this month, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Cubs gonna win the division, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

  17. genrebuster Says:

    Sheep Boy, we were expecting you….now, don’t get too excited….unless I’m mistaken 7 out of 8 Cubs victories since the break were against the Nationals and the Reds. That said, those wins do count in the standings…

    Bradley for Mott The Hoople is fine with me, too.

    This could be the year!


  18. genrebuster Says:

    Isn’t it just grand seeing Dusty lose again?

  19. genrebuster Says:

    from ESPN on-line gamer summary: “Outfielder Milton Bradley didn’t seem happy about the team’s ascension, complaining about the demanding fans and media.

    “Are we going to get more cheers now?” he asked reporters. “Are we going to start getting bashed … in articles about our lineup and was it better last year and all that garbage?”

    Is it me…or is this guy just a stupid entitled bum? Trade him for a bag of shit, we’ll never get Mott. I wonder what Hendry and Lou think about Bradley’s latest comment?

    Maybe Milton is confused and thinks he just won the World Series. Please…just shut the fuck up and play ball.

  20. ksmc2000 Says:

    I realize that it is required that the players make themselves available to the media. But in Bradleys case, they should make an exception. Every time he opens up his mouth, something stupid falls out. He can’t be satisfied with winning 8 of the last 10 and taking over 1st place. He has to use it as a forum to verbally attack the fans and media. No surprise that this is the 8th team he’s played for. His fucking act gets old quick.

  21. Nemo Says:

    All the young dudes probably don’t know who Mott the Hoople is.
