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.

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

Color me DISGUSTED.

….go Cubs go?

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.

And they’re off…with a PATHETIC whimper!

Where the fuck is the pitching?

I know the season has just begun and there is much baseball to be played…but I don’t see the Cubs competing with ANYBODY if they don’t right the ship immediately.

What are the odds that Darvish becomes the biggest Cubs bust ever?

PATHETIC.

ernie, my frendt….maybe the stars are lining up for Girardi and the Cubs! 😉Girardi

 

 

 

The Cubs are (……………………….)

October 1, 2018

3-1, Brewers. In Chicago. Tiebreaker, top of the 9th.

I think the Brewers want it more…or maybe they’re the better team.

Your thoughts?

If the Cubs win it all this year, I’ll be very impressed…

September 27, 2018

…but based on what’s been happening lately, I’m not counting on it.

For now, I’m hoping they win the division…(not feeling the wildcard scenario).

Also, IF the reports on Addison Russell are true, then he’s done and I hope he’ll get some serious professional help. I’ll never understand “serial” abusers. Regardless, the timing of this is definitely hurting the team.

Let’s see what the Cubs are made of…this is it.

September 11, 2018

My frendts: Clearly, reports of the Brewers fading away haven’t panned out…and the Cardinals are now lurking only 3 games back.

Yes, the Cubs have been saddled with injuries all year long, affecting key players expected to make a difference. But they are not alone: this is something that all teams must deal with. They just can’t keep it going. The weather postponements have likely affected them….I had a bad feeling when the game that Lester started Fri 9/7 was cancelled. They responded by dropping both games of the 9/8 doubleheader. Sun 9/9 was again postponed. Mondays response? Carl Edwards Jr. wild pitches in the winning run in a loss to…the Brewers.

I haven’t had the luxury of seeing many games this year on tv, but I keep up online and thru box scores. Seems to me the pitching has far too often been inconsistent (again) and same goes for the hitting. Hot and cold.

Daniel Murphy appears to be calm…

I was very young at the time…but I faintly remember the infamous 1969 choke job (the Ghost of Leo Durocher just crapped in his grave). Please….not again.

Your thoughts and rants welcomed.

 

 

WHOA! Daniel Murphy to the Cubs.

Does anybody remember the 2015 NLCS? I sure as hell do….by the end of it, I was almost as disgusted with Murphy as I still am to this day by the thought of Steve Garvey (google it). Murphy was a one-man wrecking crew.

Hopefully he inspire the offense to wake up…the pitching isn’t going to be enough for a deep run in the playoffs, IMOP.
