    Sounds like there’s some rumbling in the Cubs ivory tower that Dale Sveum may be done at the end of the season. Thoughts?

    I wouldn’t lose any sleep over it. Yes, I know they are bad, almost bad by design. But Sveum has really had some head scratching moments during his tenure. Continually putting Gregg in to save games, Valbuena playing instead of the very hot hitting Donnie Murphy, shit like that. And this may just be my imagination, but I he might have actually lost this team. Samardzija has a blow up with third base coach David Bell, and Sveum himself had words with Edwin Jackson, aguy from what I’ve heard, he’s never really gotten along with. And it just seems that they’re going through the motions many days. They players do still care about winning, I know that, but I wonder just how much they respect Sveum. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.

    these guys are f’n terrible! All of those arguments in the dugout are clear that Dale has lost the team…Jackson sucks, yes…but if a manager is respected like that, that shouldn’t happen! he needs to go! The crap with Gregg and Marmol was it for me – this season finally will end in a couple weeks and I couldn’t be any happier!

    The Cubs STINK and Sveum is in over his head.

    Honestly, I could care less what happens….this season has played out as expected…mind-numbing….and PATHETIC.

    On another note, Wrigley Field still smells like cat piss and Tommy Boy doesn’t want to leave it. He must have gotten use to that smell since he was an avid bedwetter until getting his driver’s license.

  5. chucky Says:

    Ron….I think he kept up the bedwetting even after getting his drivers license. And it’s not just cat piss. There’s a few dogs and coyotes thrown in for good measure. And there’s a very strong waff of dog shit coming from the clubhouse. Oh wait! That’s just Kevin Gregg.

    Never mind.

    Headscratching Moments:
    Gregg — Only you would be all like “WHY YOU THROW DAT GUY OUT DERE?!?! HE’S ONLY THE CUBESS’ BEST RELIEVER!”

    Murphy — He and Valbuena are pretty much the same shitty hitters.

  7. genrebuster Says:

    No, it’s not only chucky, you bean counting dimwit!

    If Gregg IS the Cubs best reliever, all the more reason to can his ass!

    The Cubs weren’t going anywhere this season…Gregg is past the prime of his career…this would have been a good opportunity to give some younger players an opportunity to pitch in the big leagues.

    That you don’t seem to understand this is what’s truly mind-numbing.

    Congrats Elena Delle Donne on rookie of the year. This made me think…..

    So a little known story I would like to share with you about Ottawa, Illinois aka the 93 Toronto Blue Jays illegitimate child dumping grounds. 2 sisters from Ottawa go to spring training and managed to get knocked up. 1 by Dave Stewart and the other by Joe Carter, I ended up working with Dave Stewarts daughter and after becoming comfortable to ask I had to know how much her mom pulled in from child support from Dave Stewart and she told me they made an out of court agreement on $5,000 a month.

    I then made it a personal goal to try to make babies with a female professional athlete and Elena Delle Donne would be a great target! Anyone wanna start going to Sky games?

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    Wow. This has turned into a creep thread. Well, considering the fact I don’t have nor want any kids (Really. Who would want to willingly breed with me?), Elena Delle Donne would be a rare exception.

    I actually wanted to go one of their playoff games this weekend but I am stuck by myself at work because one of my employees had her tonsils taken out last week and won’t come back until Monday. Speaking of Monday, I am going to Monday Night Raw at the same place the Sky play, the AllState Arena. That should be entertaining.

    Hey CS, if they go deep into the playoffs, we should go. That’s one professional basketball team in the city that actually has upside.

  11. chucky Says:

    You know what Yeti? What Genre just said is very true. What YOU have just said is unimportant, and your words are unworthy of a response.

    And on that note, how would you rate Mr. Greggs performance today?

  12. jimmy d. Says:

    Oh Chucky…stop being such a dewsh! I mean c’mon…it’s a long season and we can’t expect a cLOSER to be perfect all the time. You’re just being too critical of the goggle wearing maroon!

    Now, on to serious business. So, after the game, this bed-wetting, cry baby, sad excuse for a baseball player has the gonads to actually blame the brass for his disgusting performance. The same brass that gave his out-of-work ass a chance to PLAY A FUCKING GAME and get paid for it (no matter how shitty of a job he did). He pitched in his 50th game today and therefore earns a bonus of $500,000 (10 years worth of earnings for a significant percentage of the American population). I think they should release him immediately just because of the stupid shit that has come from his mouth. GO AWAY you fucking hack. Nobody else wanted your “stellar” pitching at the trade deadline because they were supremely aware of the fact that you are a mediocre pitcher…not a superior closer!

  13. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Yeti is such a damned moron – every single time he defends Gregg…he shits himself. If Gregg is the best bullpen pitcher, I’d rather have the team take their chances with a minor leaguer and give them a chance. Sure…they may suck too but at least we as fans can find out.

    So to change the subject a bit just for a sec…I have a huge problem with something else I saw today while seeing the highlights. I am not sure what the attendance was but it looked like the bleachers were completely full – IT’S SEPTEMBER 20 WITH A TEAM 25 GAMES OUT OF PLAYOFF CONTENTION! THOSE FUCKING SHEEP KEEP SHOWING UP TO THE GAMES FOR A PATHETIC FRANCHISE. STOP GOING TO THE GAMES YOU DAMN MORONS.

  14. genrebuster Says:

    Fuck Gregg and anybody else who’s in his corner. I’m so sick of highly paid athletes whining about ANYTHING….especially the the MEDIOCRE hacks who are lucky to have a job that pays so well.

    I don’t expect the Cubs to ever win it all, not until this kind of PATHETIC bullshit is absolutely NOT tolerated.


    tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tock…

  15. genrebuster Says:

    btw, great post jimmy d. …nailed it.

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    Hey CS, as I am sure you know, the Sky lost Game 1. Since the WNBA Playoffs are a best-of-three, they must win on Sunday to force a third and final game. The Fever are the defending champs but finished with a sub .500 record. It’s crunch time for Delle Donne and the ladies.

  17. Nemo Says:

    Joe Girardi’s deal expires with the Yankees at the end of the season. Phil Rogers thinks the Cubs have a reasonable chance to get him if they pay him properly. Time to go for it.

  18. chucky Says:

    Yeti says I’m the only one who is ripping on that loser. Ass backward as usual for him. He’s the only one defending him. I see he’s crawled back under his favorate rock. Stay there loser. Nobody here wants to hear from you again.

  19. Fro Dog Says:

    What the hell happened to the Chicago Sky? They are about to be swept. You know that means.

    Fire Pokey Chatman!
