    Lol. Hell, Quade thinks that no football team has ever endured so many injuries. Guess he’s never seen the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, or Green Bay Packers last year.

    PATHETIC.

    BAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    (cough cough)

  8. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Nice going by Wells to lose the game in the 7th today.

    In the words of Genre: Same old shit. Barf. PATHETIC.

    Too bad this season is only half way over.

  9. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Why does Quade insist on keeping his starters in until they’ve surrendered 6+ runs? Most pitchers would be on a short leash after six innings unless they were pitching a shutout or 1-run with a low pitch count. Even then they might be.

    He may be a nice guy but I’ve never seen anyone who was worse in managing his bullpen and making in-game decisions. Just baffles me.

  10. chucky Says:

    Pie…there is one guy who was worse. He was the inspiration for this website. His name: Johnny B. Baker.

    Yeah, that fucking guy. He was even worse than Quade. He destroyed the careers of Kerry Wood and Mark Pryor.

  11. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Ah, yes. Why must we be cursed with such incompetent management, both in the dugout and front office?

    Damn injuries. I can only imagine a rotation with Wood-Prior-Harden-Zambrano if it weren’t for injuries and mismanagement. Shame what happened to those three they were awesome to watch.

    http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/01/38-year-old-ramon-ortiz-to-step-into-cubs-rotation/

    Welcome our newest 5th starter and the future of the Chicago Cubs, 38-year-old Ramon Martinez! He has a career ERA of nearly 5.00, had a 6.30 ERA with the Dodgers last year, and had a 4.44 ERA in Triple-A Iowa. He couldn’t even make it in Japan back in 2008 and he’s probably regressed since then. I think I used this guy in Ken Griffey Jr’s N64 baseball sim.

  13. Jimmy D. Says:

    That’s just fucking retarded. Jesus Christ!!! Would somebody jump out from behind the curtain and say “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera”? There’s absolutely no way in hell that this is happening. If I’m a GM or president of another (I should say “a”, not another) Major League Baseball franchise, I’m sitting back and laughing my ass off at the total incompetence of this Chicago Cubs team. I wouldn’t want any change in their leadership as they will just be a cellar dweller forever. Plus, they’re an outlet for all of my degenerate, “has been”, washed up pieces of shit. I can trade them off to Dumbo Hendry and fleece the team of any talent which they might have in the minor league system. This joke needs to end….NOW!!! Why can’t this be done?

    Later,
    Jimmy D.

    P.S. I wish you all a Happy 4th of July weekend. Be safe.

  14. genrebuster Says:

    Keep it coming, Ricketts! For those who DON’T enjoy watching train wrecks, this season has the potential to be one of the worst ever.

    I can’t even watch this crap anymore!

    Pie, I wish we had the answer to your question re: Quade/starters. I’m not impressed with Quade at all. But Chucky is correct: Dusty is still the king of ineptitude…too bad he can’t be barred from ever managing again, based on the damage to Wood & Prior under HIS watch.

    We’ll never know what a healthy rotation of Prior-Wood-Harden & Zambrano would have been capable of….too bad.

    In the meantime, I look forward to Ricketts next press conference: I can only imagine the moronic, sheeple-esque drivel that he will so confidently spew forth! And if he plants a wet one on Hendry’s mouth at the conclusion, fine by me.

    BARF.

  15. erniesarmy Says:

    I hope you guys keep me abreast of all the news regarding Ricketts being forced to hire bodyguards to protect him from outraged Cub fans!

    That’s the only news I want to hear right now, or something along those lines. This guy needs to hear from you guys loud and clear!!

    If this hasn’t happened yet, then shame on all Cub fans in Chicago.

  16. chucky Says:

    Here comes Kerry Wood to give the game away…….

  17. chucky Says:

    Jesus fucking Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why the fuck is Kerry Wood pitching in a close game? The only time he should go in is if the Cubs are either up 10 runs or losing by 10. I’m goddamned sick and tired of this bullshit notion of him being a real Cub, or some other shit about how he belongs here. He fucking sucks! He can’t fucking pitch anymore. Get that through your thick skull Quade! Do you want to win more than 60 games this year? If you do, stop putting this fucking loser in close games. What the FUCK!!!!

  18. Christopher K. Says:

    “Great times are waiting. Grab some Buds”! Sure, thanks Len. And thank you Carlos Marmol for yet another loss.

  19. genrebuster Says:

    Just keep losing…because there is NO CHANCE of this team winning it all….NONE. It is so obvious…and has been for awhile.

    Eventually the bottom line will be affected,,,, and Ricketts will have to make a move….or eventually sell the team.

  20. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    As of right now, I would rather see them lose than win. I want this team to finish 62-100. Let’s see if those fucking sheep show up next year. When their next homestand arrives, I want to see that urinal half empty on a 85 degree Saturday.

    For all the dumbasses who have tickets for any remaining games, I just have one thing to say, if you aren’t going to show up, don’t go to the concessions. That’s where asshole Rickett’s makes most of his money.

  21. erniesarmy Says:

    I’m with Matt Stairs on this –

    If the only way this team can get rid of that vacant eyed wool gatherer Tom Ricketts, then by all means I join Matt in rooting for the Cubs to lose EVERY SINCLE GAME! I’ve been a Cub fan for 47 years, and this will be the first time I will actively root against them.

    But Ricketts has got to go it’s as simple as that. This franchise has zero chance as long as he owns the team. And all of us on this board know that.

  22. genrebuster Says:

    read the excerpt below…that and the fact that so many people — I mean sheeple — are willing to pay $6.50 (or has it gone up) — for a non-premium beer supports the premise that Cub’s fans (I’m generalizing, of course) are the dumbest in the land. Ricketts may go down as the biggest “moran” in pro-sports ownership of recent times if he doesn’t grow a pair and clean house….SOON.

    FIRE JIM HENDRY. FIRE CRANE KENNEY. CLEAN HOUSE.

    from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/07/chicago-cubs-tickets-pric_0_n_529154.html

    It’s cheaper to sit in much of the lower deck at Yankee Stadium this year, with the Chicago Cubs overtaking New York and Boston for the highest-priced regular tickets in the major leagues.

    Overall, the average cost of a non-premium ticket for a major league game is up 1.5 percent to $26.74, the Team Marketing Report said Wednesday in its annual survey. The rise is the smallest since TMR started tracking baseball tickets in 1991.

    The NFL’s average last season was $74.99. In seasons still underway, the NBA is averaging $48.90 and the NHL $51.27, TMR said.

    Many baseball teams mostly held off on increases following a drop of 6.7 percent in Major League Baseball’s average attendance last season, from 32,528 to 30,350.

    Tickets at Wrigley Field for non-premium sections average $52.56 this season and Fenway Park is second at $52.32 following a 4.1 percent hike.

  23. genrebuster Says:

    “vacant eyed wool gatherer” (Ricketts), HA HA HA HA HA…

    Ernie, you are a true POET…BINGO!!!

  24. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    I meant to say “If you are going to show up”. But let’s all be honest, the idiots already threw their money away the minute they bought those tickets. Those assholes don’t deserve our money.

    I don’t know why I am thinking this but if they can somehow get a losing streak that reaches 10 before the end of July, we could see the demise of Jim Hendry as GM. Then again, all the failures (every year to be exact) since Hendry took over nearly a decade ago should have been plenty.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
