“ All we really need is to be able to run our business like a business and not a museum.” ~ Fanboy Ricketts, Owner (Chicago Cubs)

Oh really? It’s that simple?

“The reason the Cubs are such a tourist destination … is because it’s a ballpark in a neighborhood,” – Beth Murphy, Owner (Rooftop Club)

uh oh, Trouble in Paradise. Your thoughts?

    Genre….I heard the clip this morning that Fanboy “threatened” to move the Cubs someplace else if he couldn’t get the jumbotron in left field and the signs he wants in right. My bullshit detector went on tilt. How about yours?

  2. MadCityMac Says:

    I heard that cunt Murphy on the Score a few weeks back. What an arrogant bitch! Every one of those fucking parasites who own the rooftops can eat shit and die. Even if Fan Boy is blowing smoke up everybody’s ass, it’s about fucking time. I hope he moves the team out of that urine-soaked cathedral to bad baseball. THEN let’s see how much money those cocksuckers on Sheffield and Waveland make. Fuck them and their property values. Scott, hope I’m not offending you, because I seem to remember you saying at some point your folks lived relatively close to the park, hopefully NOT close enough to fuck up THEIR property values.

  3. MadCityMac Says:

    …and I think Beth Murphy’s crappy bar sucks as well.

  4. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    He should get out no matter what…all of the buildings around it are old, the bars smell like shit and when you are in Wrigley, the urine is in the air. Screw them all!

  5. genrebuster Says:

    Mike, I agree with you. Regardless, I doubt that my folks’ property values would be adversely affected.

    I don’t give a FUCK about what happens OUTSIDE the stadium and that includes the rooftops and their owners. They made some money off the CRAP Cubs, enough is enough.

    I want a winner and if that means leaving the ARROGANT, PARASITIC, GREEDY, BLEATING SHEEPLE – do they really give a shit about WINNING; NO!!!; just $$$ (they learned their lessons well from the Tribune) – and the neighborhood behind, then so be it.

    As stated in a previous post, last summer I walked by Wrigley Field late one night and it indeed smelled like a fucking toilet… DISGUSTING.

    I’m sick and tired of the PATHETIC CULTURE surrounding the PATHETIC Cubs and that includes the rooftops, the shitty bars, the texting poser fans, the dumb-asses who can’t wait to sing “Go Cubs Go” (sorry Steve)…

    I’ve been pretty quiet because barring a MIRACLE this is “consecutive lost season #106”, but I’m really pissed off and disgusted that Marmol and Gregg are on the roster because they are MEDIOCRE at best and clearly NOT the FUTURE of this Cubs dis-organization. If they were so great, they would have been offered jobs elsewhere…

    Most of “us” agree: FanBoy should have blown this shit up when he bought the team. All of it. If it happens, better late than never.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Anyone else here realize that if it wasn’t for all of the blown saves in April, instead of 11-16 or whatever they are, they would be 16-11 and in contention for at least a Wild Card spot?

  7. Pie In The Sky Says:

    If it wasn’t for all the blown saves and Single-A defense, they could have the best record in MLB. But they played Single-A defense and insist on mishandling their closer situation, so…

  8. Yeti Says:

    The Cubs have been bad in Save Situations, but they’re not the worst: http://tinyurl.com/czzslp5

    Part of their perfomance can be attributed to bad luck. There’s a stat on the far right side of that called BABIP (Batting Avg of Balls In Play, basically any batted ball in the foul lines). Typically 30% of all batted balls in play fall for hits. (there are factors involved, such as the type of hits allowed, etc), but the Cubs’ pitchers BABIP in Save Situations is .405, which is abnormally high. This is sure to go down, and things will level out.

  9. chucky Says:

    Not as long as Marmol is on the team. And I don’t expect Gregg to last much longer either.

  10. genrebuster Says:

    Things will “level out”? What does that mean?

    This team goes NOWHERE until a real closer is signed. And even then, there are more pieces needed to complete the puzzle.

    1908….seems like yesterday!

    ….one 15 game winning streak and “they could go all the way”!

  12. genrebuster Says:

    Wait till next year.

    It’s sheeple for BAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! BAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

  14. cubs suck Says:

    Tommy Boy can do what he wants he owns the team, if the window peepers dont like it they can go fuck themselves… he should build a dome, that will teach them…. lol
