And now, a Cubs no-hitter.

September 13, 2020

Alec Mills pitched a no-hitter today. And, Baez stole home. And, the Bears came from behind to beat the Lions. Glorious!

2nd one at Miller Park…Zambrano pitched one in 2008 against the Astros.

That’s all, my frendts…I’m going for a walk in the woods. Carry on!

Another ex-Cub is gone.

Worst trade in MLB history? You be the judge.

Your comments welcomed…IF anybody even cares.

Cubs are playing like it really matters…but will it?

August 12, 2020

So, the Cubs are 12-3, and off to their best start since 1970.

They look great. It seems like David Ross is really connecting with the players, and taking care of business.

Normally I’d be checking the ball scores regularly, but I’m finding it hard to engage…and expecting the season to “end” before it’s completed.

Thoughts, anybody?

 

Da Cubs.

strange days

Greetings to all and apologies for my prolonged absence…current events have thrown a wrench into many things, and like many I’ve been affected. Between scrambling to make ends meet, and how to release an album that was scheduled for a mid-March release (I held it back for awhile) my plate has been full.

That said, I’m healthy and doing my best to remain that way; here’s hoping that the same is true for you and yours.

Under normal circumstances, we would be 2 months and counting into the 2020 baseball season. But the way things are looking, I won’t be surprised if baseball is canceled until 2021….what do YOU think is going to happen?

As for the Cubs, I honestly haven’t been keeping up with what’s happening/new. If anybody wants to post an in-depth analysis to spark a new thread, please comment here. Upon request, I’ll start a new thread with your post featured and a credit to you.

As weird as things are, a summer without baseball makes everything worse…(for me).

In 2016, the Cubs surprised (shocked?) most of us by winning their first WS since 1908. Now we sit and wait…

tick fucking tock…

…hello again, David Ross

chucky Says:

Hey Genre, or Fro…..I think we need a Cubs post, asap. We have a real serious problem on our hands, I’m afraid.

Dave Says:

I’m giving David Ross a pass until he actually screws up significantly. Joe Espada was probably the best choice but lets see what Ross does.

***************************

chucky, thank you for the gentle prod…I’m buried with work. Like Dave, I’ll give Ross a pass for now. I expected Espada to be hired when they brought him back for 2nd interview.

Ernie, what do you make of this?

Thank You, Joe Maddon!

October 3, 2019

Well…….I, for one am disappointed that Joe won’t return in 2020. He was the perfect manager for the Cubs when hired, and the 2016 World Series Championship proves it. I suspect that he was ready to move on, and wish him the best moving forward.

I’ll write more later….in the meantime, I know my frendt Ernie is happy that Maddon is gone…what about the rest of youse?

…waiting to see who the next Cubs manager will be….tick tock.

 

Shades of Kevin fucking Gregg!

September 21, 2019

Whose idea was it to sign Kimbrell? He’s a one man wrecking crew…PATHETIC.

Color me DISGUSTED.

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

….go Cubs go?

August 16, 2019

My frendts: the Cubs are making my head hurt.

So, what are the issues with this 2019 Chicago Cubs team? And, why can’t they win on the road?

Discuss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ernie…this one’s for you!

July 5, 2019

First off….I apologize for being AWOL for so long. Life, work, music…they all got in the way. I won’t bore you with the sordid details….but I apologize for dropping the “fucking ball” (thx, Giselle!).

Now, let’s get down to business….I just saw this: https://www.nj.com/sports/2019/07/mlb-rumors-cubs-theo-epstein-laying-groundwork-to-fire-manager-joe-maddon-hire-joe-girardi.html

Ernie, I think I know where you stand (bwah hahahaha) …but I am interested to hear from ALL that want to weigh in….and don’t don’t hold back, or I’ll summon the “Ghost of Leo Durocher”.

I havn’t given up on the Cubs yet….given the injuries, etc. U dig. Regardless, Darvish SUCKS. But there’s still a lot of baseball to be played.

Fro. I’ll be in town 7/13-15…I’m on a short leash but let me know if you might have time for a burger, etc. Sorry for short notice.
