Black Rodeo in Los Angeles

So, I’m not really sold on the Cubs yet…after all, we’re only about 26% though the season. Lots of baseball to be played.

Good to see the bats wake up today in St. Louis. But what about the relief pitching so far?

    Cut Pedro Strop! And I’d say trade Jon FUCKING Lester, but who’d be stupid enough to take that contract?

    Oh yeah, I forgot.

  2. Pie in the Sky Says:

    It’s better, at least so far. Still nowhere near where it needs to be. Hoping they acquire someone in July. They need a left-handed specialist and someone to replace Strop in the setup role (or replace Soto with Soto moving down to setup).

    “Hello Mr. Hendry, I’m here with your pizza…and boy, do I have a deal for you!”

    Warren just gave up a three run homerun to make the score 9-7 after he took over with a 9-4 lead.

    So, in answer to your question; no this team does not have the bullpen arms to challenge for a pennant or a world series. Strop, Warren, Richard (“spit”), and Cahill are crap shoots every time they take the mound. Arrieta is starting to revert back to his old self. Lucky for him that every time he pitches he gets a five to six run lead. And, as Chucky so eloquently puts things, Lester has been a total bust for the money they’re paying him!

    This team is far from a sure thing this fall.

  5. Erniesarmy Says:

    Ha! Hilarious! After posting the above, Woody, another “great bullpen arm” just gave up a home run! Now it’s 9-8! Now it’s Grimm’s turn to give up the lead and the game!

    This team is still a joke!

  6. chucky Says:

    Bottom of the ninth Ernie. Two on, no outs. Color me a pessimist. I think it’s over.

    Hope I’m wrong.

  7. Erniesarmy Says:

    Pessimism? With the Cubs? No, reality! A closer who can’t close, what a concept! Only with the Cubs. Another in the line of Carlos Marmol clones.

  8. Erniesarmy Says:

    Hey Chucky, Rondon wiggled out of it by the skin of his teeth. That’s unacceptable for a closer. I know it can’t always be 1-2-3, but this clown, like Marmol and Gregg and Farnsworth (remember him?), makes it “interesting” way too many times.

  9. chucky Says:

    Yeah, that’s true Ernie. Maybe he need to punch out a fan and bust up his hand. Farnsworth had quite a temper back then.

    And I am glad I was wrong about them losing the game. That got a little too “interesting” for my taste

  10. genrebuster Says:

    I don’t want interesting…beat-down is preferred.

  11. chucky Says:

    Uninteresting would be a nice change, and it might be….interesting.

    Good to see the White Sux reverting back to what they really are……just plain bad.

  12. chucky Says:

    Fucking goddamned Strop. Lose that motherfucking ass burglar before he loses another fucking game. I’m at the point now where I wouldn’t trust him to protect a ten run lead. Useless bag of fuck.

  13. genrebuster Says:

    Clayton Richard is doing his very best to waste a strong performance by Arrieta….

  14. genrebuster Says:

    PATHETIC bullpen.

  15. genrebuster Says:

    Paging Mr. Grimm and Mr. Richard….tick tock…tick tock…tick tock.
