Why am I NOT surprised?

by

The Marlins (Fucklins?) did it again!

Much as I wanted to, I never really believed the Cubs had a chance this year. They shot out of the gate but couldn’t sustain the energy for 60 games (less than 1/2 a normal season). They limped into the playoffs (again) and the hitting was almost non-existent (when it really matters).

I expect a very different roster next year. So does the guy who wrote this article: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/why-cubs-early-playoff-exit-is-end-of-the-road-for-core-group-that-won-2016-world-series/

Any thoughts? I promise not to be offended if nobody wants to weigh in…it was difficult for me to be excited about, much less pay attention during this ‘mini-season’.

Wait till next year.

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

    I’m just grateful for 2016. They probably should’ve had at least one more title but Epstein hasn’t really kept up the roster or the farm system. I’m surprised they did as good as they did this year.

    Genre, I’m going to cut and paste what I wrote on the previous post. It really doesn’t belong there.

    Off topic……So the mighty Cubs drop two straight against the Marlins, quietly ending their season

    THE MIAMI MOTHERFUCKING MARLINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GOD-FUCKING-DAMNIT TO FUCKING HELL!!!!!!!!!!!! One fucking run in two games. The goddamned ghost of Chili fucking Davis is still haunting them. And like it or not, David Ross is not the fucking answer. They had the chance to land a real manager in Joe Girardi, and do they do? They do the typical Cubs thing and hire crowd favorite David Ross. Fucking stupid. I fucking hate this shit.

    Another thing that pisses me the fuck off is this: Ownership of the Marlins. I fucking hate Derek Jeter. Something about him just goes against me like fucking rat poison. There’s no fucking way in hell the Marlins are a better team than the Cubs. The difference between them? Don Mattingly is a real manager. David Ross is not. Thanks Theo, and go fuck yourself.

    I’m glad you cut and pasted your post, chucky…(I haven’t looked at the other thread yet).

    I can’t argue with anything you stated. Fuck it.

    Pie, I’m with you on 2016. They started hot but couldn’t sustain it…average at best the last 30 games or so.

    In other news, the great Bob Gibson died today of pancreatic cancer…he was 84…RIP.

    2020 sucks.

    Bullet Bob Gibson dead at 84:

    Pay attention youngsters, for this is back in the day when pitchers, pitched actual complete games and would instantly hit anybody who dared to flip their bat after a home run or crowd the plate.

    Bob Gibson was one of the best, and I had the pleasure of watching him on television live. I was 14 when he won the MVP of the 64 World Series against my Yanks. Gibson was of course instant death when he pitched against my helpless Cubs in 64-68. I knew when he pitched it was an automatic loss. In the 1968 World Series he struck out 17 batters in the first game against the Tigers. That year Gibson had an era of 1.12! That’s right, as matter of fact the league lowered the mound the next year mainly because of Gibson’s dominance. Carl Yastremeski won the batting title with a .301 avg.!

    Ace pitchers won 20 games a season, not 15 or 17 like today. In 1968 Denny McClain won 31 games!

    These were men who played for the love of the game and left politics to Politicians.

    Goodbye, Bob, Lou, Tom, and Al Kaline, you guys were the best on the field and off. That was a time when owning a Bob Gibson, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, Sandy Koufax, or Hank Aaron baseball card was like owning the Hope Diamond for a kid.

    For me, the fifties and sixties were the pinnacle of greatest sports players and games ever played. Gone forever.

    Ernie…..I posted on the thread when Lou Brock died about the very first game my dad took me to back in 1973 when I was nine years old. Bob Gibson was the pitcher for the Cards. And the Cubs won the game. Damn, this just sucks. We’re losing too many legends.
