    So I see that Dusty’s boys have now taken control of the central…for now. Let’s see how long they keep that up before Harang’s or Arroyo’s arm falls off. PATHETIC.

    By the way, what happened to all the sheeple that came here last year talking like they knew everything? (Yeti, Dr. Noisewater, etc.) Interesting…

  2. chucky Says:

    Matt…would you keep coming back to a site where everybody rightly kicked you in the nuts every day?

    I wouldn’t.

  3. genrebuster Says:

    Matt, I hear there is a circle-jerk convention going on, that would explain the absence.

    As for the Reds, I doubt they can hang in past the break (if that long). If I was a betting man, I’d put money on at least one of their starters being injured before too long.

    Mike Leake is a talented young man, I hope Dusty doesn’t ruin his career…

  4. ksmc2000 Says:

    It sucks to be young pitchers like Leake, Cueto, and Chapman. They will never reach their full potential after being tainted with Dusty’s tutilige.

  5. chucky Says:

    Good fucking god. This can’t be true. I didn’t hear it because I have the volumn down on my TV. But I just saw on a Comcast update a caption that said “Cubs agree to terms with Bob Howry”.

    Did they really re-sign that cocksucker again? I’ll tell you this. If they did I’m done with this bullshit team. I’ll cheer for the goddamned Washington fucking Nationals before I cheer for the Cubs again.

    Something like this should not even talked about, let alone being done.

    chucky its true…just when we thought moe could not get any dumber he goes out and proves he can

    Chucky, I love ya.

    Hey, since we’re into lunatic mode, why don’t we see if we can re-sign Mark Prior? And if he’s not available, I’m sure Latroy Hawkins could be had in a pinch.

    What was Jim Hendry before he was a GM, a Maytag repairman?

    This organization thrives on being a laughingstock-it’s their clever marketing device.

  8. chucky Says:

    Thanks Ernie. Hell, since we’re in recycle mode, let’s rehire fucking Baker. Lou doesn’t want to be there anymore. He wants to sit on the beach and suck down margaritas all day long.

    I am so embarrassed to be a Cub fan these days.

  9. MadCityMac Says:

    Ernie, I’ll bet if Moe called Doug Melvin he’d trade LaToya to him in a heartbeat. He’s on the DL right now; I didn’t think “useless” was a reason for the DL but….

  10. genrebuster Says:

    tick tock. The only way I continue to give a crap about the Cubs next year is if one of the following happens:

    1. They win the WS this year (baaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)

    2. Hendry and Rothschild are fired.

    I’d like to see Lou retire, too.

    I’d also like to see A-Ram, Lee and Zambrano — at least –traded once Hendry is gone.

    So far, Ricketts gets a “D”….D for dumbass. Just another rich guy who doesn’t get it.

    On a positive note, the Game Boy for Silva trade is looking pretty good at this moment….HA HA HA HA.

  11. robert Says:

    is it just me or does any one else find it pathetic that dlee has 8 more rbis and aram has 10 more rbis than castro and castro has only been up 2 weeks

  12. genrebuster Says:

    no, it’s not you…i say bench lee and a-ram and play some more young guys …piniella and hendry will run this team into the ground before the end of the season


  13. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:


    I would have to disagree with you. Hendry ran this franchise into the ground many years ago.

    I think Hendry signing Brown Spot Bob again sums up his tenure in a nutshell. Really? There isn’t anyone better in the minors who they could call up instead? I will steal your word for a moment…PATHETIC.

  14. Erniesarmy Says:

    Mad City – “He’s on the DL right now; I didn’t think “useless” was a reason for the DL but….”
    “Useless”? That’s the only kind of player Hendry is interested in singing these days.

    Melvin: “Hey, Jim, I’ve got a player here who’s pretty useless, could you use him”?

    Moe Hendry: “Doug, I definitely want him. I could use a few more useless players to go with the one’s I already have. If you got any more, please call.”

  15. robert Says:

    the cubs do have two pitchers dominating in triple a diamond and cashner ….but we dont want them we want the righty lefty combination of howry and gayblow

  16. genrebuster Says:

    Matt, you are right of course about Hendry/the franchise…

    I apologize…my edge has dulled a bit….years of watching this PATHETIC franchise and all the sheeple followers must be getting to me.

    As for the word PATHETIC, I encourage all readers/posters to use it as they wish…as I am borrowing it myself…


    Welcome back Brown Spot. Thanks Moe.

  17. genrebuster Says:

    Seems like Hendry and Lou are two old geezers who can’t keep up with the game of baseball anymore…even Dusty is making them look bad right now! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    Ricketts, please blow this crapola up so we can have something to cheer about!

  18. robert Says:

    did anyone notice in the 10th the rangers walk castro yet pitch to lee and aram

  19. Erniesarmy Says:

    Gentlemen, it has finally come to this –

    Manager Lou Piniella:

    “Look, you’ve got to hit with men on base, that’s all there is to it. It’s really not that hard. I played 17 years. It’s not like I haven’t played up here. It’s not that hard. It really isn’t. I know everybody’s trying but it’s not that hard.”
    He’s finally done it, he’s officially flipped his lid.

    It’s ok, Lou, just empty your pockets, follow that little yellow line over there, and we’ll take good care of you.

    Hey, Ricketts, nice manager ya got there, any more like him and you can officially call your organization the Chicago Loons.

  20. genrebuster Says:

    Bench A-Ram. Bench Lee. If possible, trade them and Zambrano for younger, talented players. Fire Hendry. Fire Rothschild. Let Lou retire…or push him out.

    Then the re-building process can begin. Until then, it’s SOS.

    Truly PATHETIC. SO far, I’m not impressed with Ricketts or his money (but I haven’t seen the new troughs yet).


  21. chucky Says:

    You know something Genre, the fact that Ricketts didn’t get rid of those goddamn horse troughs should have been the first clue to the rest of us about what this asshole “fan’ is all about.

    I’m fucking sick to death of the stupid bullshit gimmicks. The 7th inning bullshit conductors, Len and Bob broadcasting in the bleachers, the stupid, bullshit playing of “Go Cubs, Go” after they do win a game (as far as I’m concerned, Steve Goodman is fucking Satan), and all the other retarded bullshit going on to promote this shit.


  22. chucky Says:

    And while I’m at it….

    FUCK YOU BOB HOWRY!!!!!!!!!!!

    FUCK YOU MOE HENDRY!!!!!!!!!!


  23. genrebuster Says:

    Chucky…It’s all about $$$. I won’t believe the new owners really give a crap about winning until they do something to PROVE IT. I kinda wish Cuban had bought the team…I bet he would have made more changes right off the bat…

    TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE. IT’S OLD…AND IT STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Erniesarmy Says:

    Well knock me down and call me Oscar, the Cubs won another game …

    is the season over yet?

  25. genrebuster Says:

    All kidding aside, who would have thought Silva would have performed this well? Hendry really lucked out on the Game Boy for Silva trade…but the fact that he signed Game Boy in the 1st place is unforgivable…what a moron…or is it “moran”?

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Ernie. Yes. The season is over, no WS title this year I’m afraid…wait ’till next year!

  26. genrebuster Says:

  27. genrebuster Says:

    Chucky, I just found this:!/video/video.php?v=10150158909590232&ref=mf

    I think you’ll enjoy it more than Steve Goodman’s song…

  28. genrebuster Says:

    “Choke Cubs Choke”…here’s a better link:

  29. chucky Says:

    Oh. My. God!!!!!!! Genre, you are my hero, man. That is THE funniest thing I have ever seen. I’m in fucking tears right now. That is classic.

    Wouldn’t it be funny as hell if somebody actually played that over the PA at Wrigley after the game?

    Thanks for the laugh Genre. I really needed it.

  30. robert Says:

    Howry and gayblow on the same team bad

    Howry and gayblow in the same bull pen

    Howry and gayblow pitching in the same game was worse

  31. genrebuster Says:

    chucky…I only found it…can’t take credit for it!

    I wish they would play it over the PA @ Wrigley Stadium when the Cubs blow their next game there…maybe people would WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




    (translation: I met my wife in the bleachers at Wrigley Field!)

    Gee, that’s really sweet Mr. Ricketts! Go Cubs Go!


    tick tock…

  32. Erniesarmy Says:


    I agree with Chucky, you are da man!!!!!

    That has to be the all-time best sports song I have ever heard!

    Whoever did the Harry Carey voice was better than Harry himself. For a minute there, I thought Harry had come back from the dead!!!

    “All this talk about 100 years has got to shtop … the crusthachean perioahd, now that’s long …” BBBBWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    Hey, Ricketts, how does it feel to be the owner of a team that has it’s own song celebrating it’s suckyness ? Do you even care? Nah, you’re just sitting home counting your money while you blow off kisses to all the stupid fans who come to your park that smells like PEE…Losers PEE.

    I’m with you Chucky, I am almost there, I am almost ready to find another team to root for. I’ve just about had enough!

  33. Erniesarmy Says:

    Oh, by the way, Fro, or KSMC, you guys have got to put this video on the home page as the official song of the “Fire Moe Hendry” Blog.

    This is too good to pass up, I want to play that video everyday.

  34. MadCityMac Says:

    Scott, that was frikkin’ priceless! On another note, how ’bout those Blackhawks! I wouldn’t want to be Duncan Keith’s dentist today, but it certainly looks like a 49 year drought is reall close to it’s end!

  35. robert Says:

    found maybe the dumbest sheeple

    I have to vent some frustration with the decision to call up Castro. The Cubs are struggling offensively and they justify the callup and Ryan Theriot position switch by citing improved defense when the defense is not the problem. Consistent offense is the problem. Mike Fontenot is a stud and was having a superb season. What a slap in the face to bench him so the organization can go through growing pains. I understand the kid can play, or so everyone keeps telling me, but now he’s averaged an error a game. Our defense is suffering, too. If you want a spark, bring someone up to make Aramis Ramirez and Derrek Lee sweat and sit them a couple days a week. Your thoughts?

  36. Erniesarmy Says:


    Mike Fontenot? A stud? Seriously?

    Must have been Irish Yeti who posted that, only he could be that dumb.

  37. robert Says:

    this is what you see when you open carrie douchebags mailbag

  38. Erniesarmy Says:

    I don’t like Dempster, never have, but his game tonight was pure beauty. Marmol wasn’t bad either. They absolutely dominated the Dodgers tonight.

    It is too bad the Cubs have such doofuses for manager and general manager, they just might have a chance with this bunch if they had competent baseball people running things.
