    Jim Hendry is a BUM.

    Tom Ricketts is an IDIOT FAN BOY.


    Next! (batter up)

  2. Yeti Says:

    Well, I was thoroughly pwned in the last thread.

  3. Jimmy D. Says:

    NICE!!! After giving up a Grand Slam in the bottom of the 1st, apparently Ryan Dempster thought that it would only be fitting to subsequently walk the bags loaded again. Perhaps he was hoping to get a chance to give up 2 Slams in the same inning. Way to go….TARD!!!

  4. genrebuster Says:

    All in good fun, Yeti.

  5. genrebuster Says:

    I know it’s somewhat irrational…but I would really be happy if ALL the overpaid high dollar contracts that remain from the last 5 years or so were gone at the end of this year…just blow it up already and start over with a new GM.

    A-Ram, Zambrano, Soriano, Fukudome, Dempster…who am I forgetting?

    What’s there to lose?

    Bears draft seems to have gone better than usual. I’m not 100% sure about Enderle…I would’ve personally preferred Tolzien, but I’m biased since I saw him play in high school. But they called Enderle a “poor man’s Cutler,” pointing to his INTs and tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. That seems…unwise. But again, biased.

    And…baseball is bumming me out right now. I’m ready to rekindle my childhood Oriole fandom.

    I am sure we all like to think that the Bears went with a better draft. The fact still remains that Jerry Angelo is the general manager of this damn team. When they drafted Chris Williams a few years back, a lot of us were excited until we found out that the Bears drafted him knowing he had a history of injuries.

    I like Carimi and he is suppose to be a great player but knowing that Angelo is making the decisions with his luck, he will suck. I would love to be wrong.

    Did Tolzien go to the same high school as you or did you just watch him play against you guys? A couple guys I graduated high school with in Rochelle ended up going to NIU but didn’t go far.

    Well, yesterday was a refreshing win in the late stages of a game. It would be nice to see that become a routine event.

    Here is something I found interesting…

    So now that some of the sheeple are finally going away, Ricketts is finding a way to bring them back in: Cheaper beer.

    It seems obvious that Ricketts has won this fight also.

  11. fallscountanywhere Says:

    Ha, cheap beer at Wrigley isn’t a bad idea since that’s really the reason a lot of people go.

    Fro, I went to the same school as Tolzien. The whole family created a bit of a legacy there because of their talent (and being smart kids, too) haha.

  12. MadCityMac Says:

    Whomever signs Tolzien as a free agent will never regret it. Somebody may already have, I just haven’t seen any local news today that says he signed. Having watched him for the past 2 years here in Madison, the guy is one of the most intelligent QBs out there and quite honestly I’m surprised he wasn’t drafted, albeit late in the draft. As a backup, he’ll be a great compliment to any starter, and it will be almost like having another coach on the sidelines, just like Jim Sorgi, coincidentally another former Badger, was when he backed up Peyton Manning. And he’ll never embarass himself if he does have to play. I wish like hell we had him here for another year or two. Jon Budmayer starting (from Mundelein?) scares the hell out of me, but he’s probably only going to be handing off to our stud running bscks anyway!

  13. MadCityMac Says:

    Just woke up from my brain fart- DUH, no free agent signings until the lockout is over- that said, I really hate Jerry Jones! And Moe Hendry. And Crane Kenney! I know, random…

  14. erniesarmy Says:

    Cubs up 1-0 versus Dodgers …

    Who here thought that would hold up? Anybody? Anybody? Ferris?

    I was reading sports mail sent in to the L.A. Times on Saturday. One guy said the L.A. Kings were an embarrassment to L.A. hockey. And he added the worst insult he could think of, he said they were in the same category as the CHICAGO CUBS!

    That’s right Ricketts, you’re baseball team is the adjective used by all sports fans to describe utter ineptitude … and that was being nice.

    You scum! Hundreds of thousands of loyal Cub fans starving for some sort of championship, and all you can think about is free beer.

    Sure, go ahead, give Hendry another 5 to 10 year extension. And while you’re at it do the same for Soriano and Dempster too.

    Has this guy got any semblance of a brain left, or did he leave it in the garage for repairs and forgot it was missing?

  15. chucky Says:

    He forgot it Ernie.

    Seriously, I’m really starting to hate Ricketts. Stupid little bitch fanboy.

  16. genrebuster Says:

    Nothing new here.


    Too bad Mark Cuban couldn’t buy “the Cubbies”; he would have been better than Ricketts. Then again, that would be easy for most.


  17. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:,0,7210138.story

    Some things just never change.

    By the way Genre, that Ricketts guy, he sure knows how to lure the sheeple back into the world’s largest urinal known as Wrigley Field. I am certain that the Irish Yeti’s and TDubb’s of the world will be more than happy for the cheap tickets and discounted beer.

  18. genrebuster Says:

    MAtt. The Milton Bradley SIGNING alone should be grounds fro Hendry’s firing. As GM, he had some say in that.

    Is ANYBODY here surprised at Bradley’s continuing troubles/issues? I am not. It is so obvious the guy is a narcissistic nut-job, an accident waiting to happen. I wouldn’t have signed him at any cost, much less $30 million for 3 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    It’s no wonder that the Cubs are the laughingstock of professional sports.

  19. genrebuster Says:

    *for, not fro (sorry Fro, sorry Mitch)

  20. Fro Dog Says:


    No worries. I know some of us here miss Mitch very much. Going back to the starting days of the old website, he was a very entertaining person. I don’t remember much about what we all use to argue about, but he was always there to put on a show.

  21. genrebuster Says:

    He used to give Captain Kirk a very hard time as I recall.

    Kirk: Where are you? How are you?

    The Cubs still stink! Go figure……………..
