The lockouts are everywhere.


Really? I wonder what I am going to do without football, basketball and ballet. What’s next?

    I’m thinking about locking myself out until Jim Hendry and/or Mike Quade are terminated.

  2. genrebuster Says:

    I’ve already locked myself out of supporting the Cubs in any way…and it feels great!

    FIRE JIM HENDRY…and I’ll reconsider my position.

    Ricketts is a “moran”…another a-hole with too much $$$, we all deserve better.

  3. genrebuster Says:

    I’d like to see Ricketts, Kenney & Hendry ‘locked out”…or “locked in” a Wrigley Urinal stall.

  4. MadCityMac Says:

    Scott and Fro, how about giving the 3 Stooges a swirley in one of the troughs!

  5. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Funny now that they’re getting solid pitching performances from nearly everyone including Marcos Mateo, Rodrigo Lopez, and Ramon Martinez…. the offense is completely dead (minus Aramis Ramirez. WTF was this the first 2 months?)

  6. genrebuster Says:

    Swirley time indeed, Mike…long overdue!

    Pie, had almost forgotten there was an offense.

    17 games below .500

    If Matt’s theory on a 10 game losing streak doesn’t come to pass, I maybe they’ll at least hit 25 games under .500….I wonder if that would be enough to prod Ricketts into real action….

    Nah…..I mean Bah……..probably not.

  7. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    They are now 17 games below .500 and it’s just past the halfway point. They are on pace to be 30 games under that mark. That would put them around 66 wins. Fine with me.

    What a bunch of losers. We all should have a debate on which team in the last 20 years was the worst. My bet is on the 2006 team although the 2011 version is given those other assholes a run for their money.

  8. chucky Says:

    Matt….the 06 team did suck goat balls, but I think this team is worse. What is making it worse is that the sheeplelike owner doesn’t see any problems with this team, other than injuries.

    Hey numbnuts, your team isn’t just injured, IT FUCKING SUCKS MASSIVE DICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. genrebuster Says:

    All teams have injuries…the GOOD ones don’t make excuses….the GREAT ones win regardless. It starts at the top…that’s why the Cubs suck…and will continue to.

    We all deserve better than Ricketts. Just another LOSER in a long line of idiots. Thanks for nothing.

    Boycott this PATHETIC organization and eventually changes will be made.


  10. genrebuster Says:

    Chucky, what is your assessment of Kingsford’s performance in this evenings contest? Do tell.

  11. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    3 losses in a row and 18 games under .500! Now that’s baseball!

    I know what I think I of Wood. I think it’s time for him to go another team and stay there. Nice guy and all but he is one is more a liability than anything else. Let him lose games for another team. To be real honest, I am getting sick of him.

    With the trading deadline at the end of the month, it’s time to unload players. With the exception of Barney and Castro, everyone is available. Assholes like Ramirez, Fukudome and Soriano are going to get paid regardless by Rickett’s so let them be someone else’s problem. They need to try to restock the farm system.

  12. Pie in the Sky Says:

    If Ramirez keeps this up, he’ll probably get his option for 2012…and maybe even an extension knowing Hendry /:

    Then he’ll suck for however long until final months of his contract year roll around again.

  13. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    I found Yeti. Or Al Yellon. Take your pick.

  14. chucky Says:

    Genre…Balsa Woods performance?

    Same shit, different day. In other words, typical. Fucking guy can’t pitch anymore.

    Ricketts will probably extend his contract too. Fuck this bullshit.

  15. chucky Says:

    Oh, and Matt….That kid is the evil love child of Yeti AND Al Yellon. Am I right?

  16. genrebuster Says:

    Kid’s parents don’t know that he’s playing hooky from special ed….what is the world coming to? Somebody put a gag on him.

    We’ll never know how great Balsa or Towel Boy could have been, thanks to the toothpick chomping idiot in Cincinatti.

    Where’s Bynum? It’s time for A-Ram’s nut rub now that he’s hitting the ball…of course! When they’re so far gone it DOESN’T MATTER.


  17. chucky Says:

    Genre…Didn’t Freddie follow Douche Baker to Cincinatti? That’s the first place I’d look.

  18. Jimmy D. Says:

    6 straight hits and no visit to the mound by the manager or the pitching coach. Really??? My bad, there was a visit before the 6th straight hit. 4 runs in, nobody out….OOOPPPSS!!! Now it’s 7 straight hits, 4runs in, the bases are loaded and still nobody out. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

  19. Jimmy D. Says:

    Sweet. Next batter gets a double. Now, the Schlubs are down 6-0, nobody out, runners at 2nd and 3rd and Garza’s thrown 658 pitches, this inning alone. But wait…there’s more…here comes our savior, the Wide Receiver…Samardzija. This should be comical.

  20. Pie in the Sky Says:

    I’m just waiting for the inevitable postseason guarantee by Tom Ricketts. Any day now…

  21. genrebuster Says:

    Seriously, just keep LOSING…….PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOSE, LOSE, LOSE and Ricketts will have to make changes or he’ll eventually start losing $$$…it’s obvious that’s all he cares about, WINNING is not a priority.

    What a complete and utter “Moran”.

    On a different note, I hope the Quade experiment ends soon…sorry guys, I’m not impressed with him.

    This organization has very serious leadership problems. When “the top” is already in the the toilet, you’re fucked. Plain & simple.

  22. genrebuster Says:

    Time to FLUSH.

  23. genrebuster Says:

    Great…they’ve tied it up!

    Hendry and Quade will get their contracts extended during the post-game press conference!

    Is there a God?



  24. The Ghost of Steve Goodman Says:

    Go Cubs Go!

  25. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    I stopped watching after the 3rd. As I was putting my daughter to bed, my wife comes in and says they came back and won. I pretty much laughed “Oh my God”. When I want these greedy assholes to win, they lose. And when I continue to root for them to lose, they pull this shit off.

    Son of a bitch.

  26. Yeti Says:

    Seriously, why are you guys still watching them?

  27. chucky Says:

    Trainwreck theory. No matter how bad it is, we can’t take our eyes off.

  28. genrebuster Says:

    I’m not Yeti…I check scores on-line when working at the computer…or read what people here are posting.

    The thought of watching them–even on tv–makes me sick. The thought of PAYING to attend a game even sicker.

    Kinda like the thought of going back to a certain hotel restaurant in Puerto Limon that featured live bugs in the sugar and rice.


    I was really hoping they’d hit 30 games below .500 by the end of August…on the bright side, it could still happen!

    Somebody tell the veterans that they’re locked in a close race for the division and things should return to normal, ie. LOSING.


  29. Jimmy D. Says:

    I only go to the Cubs mainpage a couple times a day in hopes that there’ll be an announcement made regarding a change in management; primarily Hendry and Kenney. No such luck….yet!!! I’d have no problems with them cutting Quade loose, either. When at the site, I can see the Gameday information and it’s fun to see what horrific performance is unfolding.

  30. genrebuster Says:

    Basically the same for me, Jimmy D. If it weren’t for this site and checking sports news online–hoping to read of Hendry & Kenney’s firing–I’d be clueless about how the Cubs are doing.

    Enough is enough. That includes Quade, who never had a chance but isn’t so sharp, it appears.

    Thanks to Ricketts, the Cubs have achieved new heights in PATHETICISM.

    (….is that even a word….hell, it is now!)

  31. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Since I am stuck here in West Virginia, I only get to see them on WGN for the few games they still have on there (compared to a decade ago when there were at least 100 games). I’ll watch them when they are on there.

    It was said above by Chucky that this a trainwreck that we cannot stop watching. These assholes will win a game that is dramatic every now and then (all teams do). As always with this bunch, they find new and innovative ways to lose. It’s hysterical because they lose by ways you can’t make up.

    Seriously, why are you guys still watching them?
    Seriously, why are you still posting here?

    Wouldn’t you feel more at home over at Al Yellon’s sheep pen?

  33. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Sour Marmolade. Possibly the most overrated closer in baseball.

  34. genrebuster Says:

    Keep losing!

    There is no CLOSER on this team. And, there is no ACE. Come to think of it, there is no GM, either.

    But there is a sheeple owner!



    On a side note, Pittsburgh appears to be moving in a good direction…

  35. Ron Santo's legs Says:

    You know what’s kind of funny about the Pittsburgh situation? When they fired their GM, Littlefield, a couple years back, guess who hired him later on? That’s right. Jim Hendry!

    Now they have an actual GM and are in a pennant race.

  36. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Yea.,.. with what? 1/3 of our payroll?

  37. genrebuster Says:

    An actual GM…spending less money more wisely…a pennant race….imagine that!

    Ricketts and family, get your noses out of Hendry’s ass….take note!

  38. irishyeti Says:

    Yep, Yellon and I are so much of butt buddies that I’m banned from his site.

  39. Yeti Says:

    Stupid new wordpress commenting

  40. chucky Says:

    David Ortiz is my new hero.

    Kevin Gregg throws a punch like a little bitch. Because he is a little bitch.

    And by the way, I want to kick Carlos Marmol in the nuts. HARD!!!

  41. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:,0,6653016.story

    How dumb is one to talk shit to Ortiz? Gregg is a first-class dumbass. And as far as Marmol goes, I don’t have the numbers in front of me but I am certain he has blown/lost a minimum of 6 games this year.

  42. genrebuster Says:

    Too bad Ortiz didn’t go after MacFAIL, too. Line him up with Hendry and Kenney and let the games begin.

  43. Pie in the Sky Says:

    MSS –

    I heard somewhere mention he’s blown 6 of his 24 saves opportunities. 1 of every 4 attempts and he’s probably made another 6-8 much too exciting also.

  44. Pie in the Sky Says:

    *someone, not somewhere

  45. genrebuster Says:

    A lot of guys have “nasty stuff” but cannot PITCH.

    Marmol is just another face in that crowd.

    The Cubs: Same old story, same old shit.

    What’s the difference between Ricketts and a bobble-head doll?

  46. chucky Says:

    Genre….the bobble head is smarter. And the reason Ortiz didn’t go after McFAIL is that he was too busy chasing that little bitch Gregg.

    Pie…You heard correct. I heard that too. It also ties him for the MLB lead in that catagory. It also qualifies him as “a serviceable closer” to some people who don’t know their ass from 3rd base.

  47. chucky Says:

    Is the Ramon Ortiz experiment over yet?

  48. genrebuster Says:

    I doubt it.

  49. genrebuster Says:

    As they say, SOS!


    For God’s sake Ricketts: blow this shit up…you can do it!

  50. Pie in the Sky Says:

    This place about to Gra-blow-o-o-o-o-o-o

  51. Andrew McCutchen to Chicago National League Ballclub Says:

    For the next 10 years, you all will be my bitch. The folks over here in Pissburgh call me McClutchen.

  52. MadCityMac Says:

    The Pirates OWN the Chubs! I want this fucking team to lose every single game the rest of this season,or until Moe and pencil neck geek Crane Kenney are unceremoniously relieved of their duties, so to speak. I want to cheer for the team again that got me interested in baseball back in 1968, but not until these complete and utter shitbags are gone; and if Ricketts decides to sell, even better- blow it ALL up!

  53. chucky Says:

    I think the Cubs have been Andrew McCutchens bitch for a couple of years already. Along with much of the National League.

    I agree with you MCM. You’re totally spot on. After all, what is there to really cheer about? This team is getting more unlikable than the 04, 05, and 06 teams that had Asshole Baker, Cunt Merker, LaToya, Neifi Perez, Freddie “Fuck up” Bynum and the rest of those sniveling bitches. And don’t forget “Holly”.

    Sorry for the bad acid flashback.

  54. genrebuster Says:

    Andrew…to be clear: WE won’t be your bitch…but the the Cubs WILL!

    All kidding aside, I’d be thrilled if the Cubs could compete with the Pirates…but it’s not even close, Pittsburgh is moving in a good direction.

    MCM, you hit the nail on the head (too bad it wasn’t Rickett’s throat). I completely agree with you.

    Rest up Cubbies and come back refreshed, ready to LOSE…you can do it!

  55. Robert Says:

    Just tell rhem they won there last two games that shpuld cause them to loose four or five in a row

  56. erniesarmy Says:

    Reporter: “Mr. Ricketts, your team is losing game after game and you continue to do nothing. Do you have no responsibility to the millions of Cub fans who want something done, and done now?”

    Ricketts: “What a beautiful day for a ballgame. Cub fans are the greatest and most loyal fans in the game. True Cub fans (like Irish Betti for example) understand that we have suffered a multitude of injuries, and if it weren’t for all those injuries we would be in first place by now. I have complete confidence in my manager Mike Quade, my GM Jim Hendry, and my president Crane Kinney. I know they are trying really really really hard, and once we get those players back and we are back at full strength, watch out here come dem Cubbies!”

    Reporter: “Uh, Mr. Ricketts … er … uh … Uncle Tommy, the players are back. The club is back to “full strength”.

    Ricketts: “What a beautiful day for a baseball game, don’t you think? Well its been real nice talking to you today, I think I’ll go out in the bleachers and mingle with the fans. Ah, Cub fans, they love me!”

    That, fellow Cub fans is your owner. And with him as owner this team has no chance! None!

  57. Robert Says:

    jim hendry has said he is not looking to make any deals

  58. Jimmy D. Says:


    That doesn’t mean that the rest of the baseball community isn’t preparing to fleece his retarded ass of any remaining talent/potential AND also devising a way to dump their own over-the-hill, washed up, overpaid misfits on the Cubs. Just because Hendry’s not “looking” for deals doesn’t mean that we’re safe.

    Jimmy D.

  59. Pie in the Sky Says:

    I had a dream

    The Cubs traded Starlin Castro and some prospects for Jose Reyes, who agreed to a big-arse contract before the deal was made at the deadline.

    Mike Quade then used Reyes as our 3-hitter.

    Assure me that this is impossible.

  60. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Pie…I was thinking more along the lines of Hendry trading Castro and Barney to Baltimore for Lee, Gregg and Pie. Of course, McFail is the GM over there and he believed trading those guys would be an awful idea.

  61. genrebuster Says:


  62. Robert Says:

    Jimmy how many other gms have a pillow so when he calls they have to put it over there face to prevent frpm laughong

  63. MadCityMac Says:

    Ah yes, being a Cub (or will be again when the Asshole Triplets are gone); it’s why we drink!!! Gentlemen, all well stated!

  64. MadCityMac Says:

    Meant to say Cub FAN, and I’ve only had ONE beer, so far! Potosi Wee Stein Wit Wheat Ale- YUM!!

  65. robert Says:

    Here is the probem with moe ….he has chuck lamarr syndrome…you may ask who is chuck lamar…he was the first gm of the rays he went out and signed veteran players like boggs mcgriff canseco gooden etc…then refused to trade them to contenders…when vincent namoli took over as owner the first thing he did was canned lammar and when lammarr asked why namoli told him cause you had the chance to improve the team buy trading veterans for young prospects and you stood buy and did nothing now get out of my site

  66. genrebuster Says:

    God in heaven…..Tom Ricketts SUCKS.


    That’s all I got tonite!

  67. genrebuster Says:

    Oops…one more thing: NOTHING is impossible. Sleep good, Pie!

  68. genrebuster Says:

    To be clear: when looking at how stupidly Cubs management/ownership operate…..expect the worst, as nothing is impossible.

  69. robert Says:

    the only thing consistent with this franchise is they have a we willl show you attitude….that is just when you think things cant get worse they do

  70. MadCityMac Says:

    Complete fucking fluff piece- looks like something The Muskrat would be associated with!
