    PITTSBURGH — The Chicago Cubs tied a Major League record Tuesday night when they rattled off eight straight hits in the first inning, and it’s the second time in history they have done so against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    According to Elias Sports Bureau, eight successive hits to start a game has been done five other times, most recently Sept. 25, 1990, when the New York Yankees did so against Baltimore. On Sept. 27, 1981, the Oakland Athletics collected eight in a row against the White Sox, and on Aug. 26, 1975, the Pirates did so against Atlanta.

    baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Who cares?

    Muskrat still Rambles.

  4. chucky Says:

    It makes me wonder why that bitch still has a job.

  5. Nemo Says:

    maybe her employer is attracted to unattractive, masculine women.

  6. genrebuster Says:

    Muskrat has a job…Hendry has a job…Milton Bradley has a job…call Chris Collingsworth.

  7. genrebuster Says:

    On a more serious note: Big Zero has thrown 64 pitches in 3 innings…

    He is NOT — and hasn’t been — the ACE of the Cubs staff…not this year. Maybe if he could fathom that, he’d get his head together and become an even better pitcher than he’s been, perhaps even an ACE (after watching his career to date, I’m not holding my breath).

    I would have no problem trading him before next year –while he still has value — if they got player(s) of VALUE in return.

  8. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Genre, thanks for clearing that up that they should only trade him if they get players of value or better in return. Apparently, the sheeple still don’t understand the meaning of “you can trade anybody on the team for the right price” thing. That counts trading players just to clear up space to sign some egotistical maniac.

  9. genrebuster Says:

    Matt Stairs, I see that Gregg has struck again!! I wonder if the idiot sheeple will ever understand just how LOUSY he is? What a liability, a true hack at this point. I wonder if Lou will ever STOP putting him in the game?

    DUMP Gregg now. That is an appropriate action.

  10. erniesarmy Says:

    Cubs have just three more games with the Pirates, so there’s three wins they can count on before the season ends.

    Too bad they still have to play St. Louis, Milwaukee, Houston, San Francisco, and Arizona in the other games. Otherwise, they could have a pretty good season if all they played were the Pirates.

    Might even win a playoff game.

  11. Captain Kirk Says:

    SorryONo SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Trade them all.
    Send them home bring up the entire Peoria Team
    How about trading that bitch Smardzjia to the Bears?
    Hey how is Josh Vitters doing???
    Another year down the crapper!
    I hate this team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Release them all………..
    Can we have some players that can hustle while they lose?

  12. genrebuster Says:

    You go Kirk!

  13. chucky Says:

    Don’t hold back Kirk. Tell us how you truly feel.

    Good post Captain.

  15. genrebuster Says:

    robert, I believe it’s time for Yeti to access that link and defend Gregg…


  16. erniesarmy Says:


    I’m afraid “Irish Betti” sleeps with the fishies … er, I meant sheepies.

  17. Irish Yeti Says:

    I’m just waiting for Robert to respond to my questioning of his usage of his income.

  18. Dave Says:

    Chone Figgins up for grabs by the offseason. Currently making $5.77 million this year. As a free agent he will likely be asking for $10 million. He is the leadoff hitter for the Angels. At 31 years old he has put up the following numbers this season

    AVG .304
    104 runs scored
    89 walks
    39 steals
    He plays third base.

    The Cubs, White Sox, and Yankees are all after him.

    I would say Moe Hendry is great at signing older players who have breakout years so they can bat .250 or less as one of the Cubbies. Nope, I don’t want him. And if Hendry is fired, I don’t think Ricketts will want him too. I could be wrong though.

  19. Dave Says:

    I could just see the names you guys could come up with if he triggers your frustrations while in a Cub uniform. Let me think of some examples.

    Choad Figgins
    Fuckin Figgins
    Chone Faggins
    Chone Fuckins
    Any combination of the above. LOL

  20. Irish Yeti Says:

    Figgins hasn’t had that much of a breakout year. He was pretty good in 07 and marginal in 08. He’d be a decent pickup, but don’t expect him to steal bases like he did in 05 since his SB has basically gone down since. He has more this year than last year, but his CS is a bit high. Not so good.

    His OBP is excellent at .402. It appears he’s played some games at SS and 2B. 27 and 113 respectively. His range factor is decent at those two. He could be a decent fielder there. I’d say it’s not a horrible move. We’ll have to see if the money’s there.

  21. robert Says:

    are you my wife
    are you my banker
    are you my accountant
    if you cant answer yes to any of those questions why do you care

  22. Irish Yeti Says:

    I’m just trying to figure out why you brought it up, and why you can’t afford an editor.

  23. Irish Yeti Says:

    And, Robert, I could be your accountant, since I am a tax accountant

  24. erniesarmy Says:

    Dave –

    If he is asking 10 mill. then forget it. At his age, and at this point in his career, offer him 7.6 mill for three years. He’s not worth Teixeira type money.

    He would be great for that infield, but no long term deals!

  25. robert Says:

    no my accountant is not based out of illinois

  26. Irish Yeti Says:

    Teixeira’s making an average of like 22 mil per year, not 10 mil per year.

    And Robert, please address the question. Why did you bring up income? Is it because you wanted to brag about your money? Or is it because you thought you had a bigger penis than me?

    And I knew I wasn’t your accountant. I was saying I *could* be your accountant if you wanted me to be. It was a joke since I work for a company that specializes in a certain industry. I’m sure you don’t work in it.

  27. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:


    You have attacked just about everyone here on a personal level, namely Fro for what he does for a living. Don’t you remember? Now you get mad when someone attacks you on a personal level?

    You love to come here and attack us just because our opinion differs from yours. Pull whatever you have up your ass and grow up.

    Or better not, don’t come here.

  28. The Ghost of Leo Durocher Says:

  30. Irish Yeti Says:

    You seem to misunderstand me. I’m not offended. I just wonder what money has to do with it. I’ve attacked intelligence (with exception to Fro), not someone’s income. I just don’t get why he’d bring it up, along with the “I don’t usually like to bring up income…. but I’m going to bring up income anyway” disclaimer

  31. genrebuster Says:

    Yeti: Who knows, who cares.

    Ghost of Leo: damn…ouch!

  32. chucky Says:

    This might belong in the “not really important catagory”, but I’ve kept this buried for a long time:

    I have made the decision not to go to a Cubs game until the marketing department is fucking buried in a ditch. I’m typing this right after the Cubs 6-4 win over the hapless, useless Bakerfied Reds. Cubs win, and on the TV they show 40,000 sheep dancing in the stands to the most retarded, wretched goddamned excuse of a song, “Go, Cubs, Go”. Nothing, absolutely fucking nothing gets under my goddamned skin faster than miserable piece of fucking shit song. I’ll quote the late, great George Carlin: The cocksucker who wrote that song should hit in the face repeatedly with a piece of heavy mining equipment.


  33. genrebuster Says:

    Chicago, which began the day 11 1/2 games back of NL Central-leading St. Louis, is 18-6 against division rivals Cincinnati and Pittsburgh and 54-61 against the other teams on its schedule…

    …for the stat lovers among us.

    Complete the sale. Take out the garbage.


  34. genrebuster Says:

    …hard to believe the same guy who wrote “City of New Orleans” — Steve Goodman — wrote “Go Cubs Go”.

  35. chucky Says:

    I’m still in favor of Carlin’s idea from my earlier post.

    Repeatedly beaten in the face with a piece of heavy mining equipment.

  36. genrebuster Says:

    …Goodman already sleeps with the fishes.

    Dan Fabian
    Director of Baseball Operations
    Comcast Corporation

    “He sort of represented to me that whole period of bleacher bumdom,” said Dan Fabian, the WGN program director at the time who asked Goodman to write the song after listening to him give an interview in 1984. “He was a hard core Chicago kid… The guy was blood, for heaven sakes, a Cubs groupie.”

  37. chucky Says:

    Ok genre. Let’s do this: We save Carlin’s punishment for the douchebag who decided playing it after every win was a good idea. Who does that fall on?

    1) McDonough? Yeah, I know he for the Blackhawks now. So what? Did he make the decision?

    2) Crane Kenney? Hell I’d like to bash his face with something just on general principals.

    3) Hendry? I don’t think he’d have anything to do with that decision, but just in case, read #2.

    I don’t know of anybody else who would be involved, but if there are any more, line ’em up!

  38. genrebuster Says:

    chucky. I have read your latest plan: you have my support!

  39. chucky Says:

    Good. I think I may need it, genre. Thanks.

  40. genrebuster Says:

    Breaking news on (alert the media…..baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa):

    “Cubs LF Alfonso Soriano is to get a second opinion on the left knee injury that has sidelined him since Sept. 4, and Piniella said it was “doubtful” Soriano will play again this season.”

    Fine with me!

    “Piniella also said Soriano’s days of batting leadoff were “over with.”

    Better late than never! DOH!

    Make no misunderstanding, I hope that Soriano recovers from whatever ails him.

    Yeah, can you imagine the Cardinals, Yankees, Dodger, Red Sox, or any other legitimate MLB organization using this cheesy kindergarten song to generate fan reaction?

    This organization is in desperate need of adult supervision. The priest in the dugout thing last year was embarassing! I didn’t want to show my face as a Cub fan after that.

    No wonder this franchise is the laughing stock of not only baseball, but professional sports in general. They’re a joke! Plain and simple! They have a minor league front office with a Jack-In-The-Box marketing strategy.

    The only hope this team will have if, or when, they ever get another shot in the postseason, is if the other team loses their best players to the DL from pulled muscles caused from so much laughing!

    “Go Cubs Go” “Go You Cubbies Go” “We Love You You Lovable Losers” – “Oh, Sally, aren’t they cute!”
