    Yeah, I think the Bulls are in trouble. Sad to think that Derrick Rose was the main reason for that #1 seed.

    This is an article about our old rivals, the Knicks, but it points out the long standing problems of one of our baseball teams…specifically, its “public image”:

    Damn DVX. You can replace the Knicks with the Cubs and replace Amar’e Stoudemire with Carlos Zambrano and it would be the exact same story.

    At least the Cubs got rid of their psychopathic bitch.

  4. Pie In The Sky Says:

    So… how long before we get rid of Carlos Marmol?

  5. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Marmol explodes again! If you can’t get 3 outs with a 3 run lead, you don’t have any business being in the Majors.

    “No, the best comparison for all-time professional-sports awfulness is the Chicago Cubs. The Cubbies haven’t won a World Series since 1908, and they, too, have lost in embarrassing and mind-boggling ways (Bartman . . . the 1984 collapse), and they, too, have squandered great talent, effort and, recently, investments.

    The difference is this: The Lovable Losers are at least lovable.”

    Go check out Fire Jim Essian’s Top 126 Worst Cubs of My Lifetime, and rethink that statement.

    “The Cubs are a mockery everywhere, but those losers are celebrated to the point that there’s a perverse joy their fans get in allowing themselves to believe year after year and then, when history repeats itself, just shrug and wait for “next year.” There is a kind of victory in bringing your fans joy, even if you do that through a pattern of defeat.”

    Way to go on the marketing, TribuneCo! No wonder WGN can’t program a TV lineup that has to scramble with DirectV to stay on their radar.

    Over the last two MLB seasons, I see lots of SportsCenter highlights featuring half-empty stadiums. Given the Cubs’ recent history, I think it’s time Wrigley Field become a ghost town until this team can try to compete. Fuck this “Loveable Losers” bullshit. Why should we pay one of the highest ticket prices in MLB for AAA (being generous) talent, effort, and maturity?

    Cigarette did it again

  8. chucky Says:

    Fucking Marmol is making me wish that Joe Borowski would make a comeback.

    Speaking of comebacks, did anyone notice who just signed with the Boston Red Sox?

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mark Prior.

  9. Dusty Says:

    Dude, we were clogging those bases in the 9th!

    Prior signs with Boston? Dude. I was trying to figure out where my horse was at!

  10. genrebuster Says:

    Dusty, I hear they have nice towels in Boston.

    ….can Mitch Williams still pitch?
