What’s it feel like to be an ‘honarary Bearded Bear’? Ask Rich Aurilia of the San Fransisco Giants, becuase he’s been bestowed this elite award. Why would a Giants player win an award from a website that celebrates athletic excellance with the Cubs and Bears? Becuase Rich made a key error in the 10th inning, attempting to field a routine grounder.
Eh, this beards for you Rich!
Other good news includes that the Cubs were able to extend their first place lead in the NL Central to a full game!
Well, we’ll look forward to Z taking the mound tomorrow!
Cubbies will make it 4 in a row today!
Yee-haw Ya’ll! I’m loving it! The CHICAGO CUBS ARE IN FIRST PLACE! Read and WEEP Cardinal fans!!!
Now, a few things need to happen today for the Cubbies to begin their distancing of these mediocre NL Central Teams:
1) REDS need to beat the BLEWERS today. This will possibly put a 1.5 game lead up for the Cubbies!
2) CUBS MUST SWEEP the Cardinals.
I’m so excited about the possibility of posting tonight about a CUBS sweep!
Brabson – Patty: HAVE FUN AT THE GAME!!!! GO CUBBIES!!!
Welcome to the scariest ride in Baseball – the Chicago Cubs Coaster! Weee….. Up, then down, now all around….
Wow. If you stayed up for last night late game, it was exactly like a roller coaster. First, the Cubbies were down 5-0 to the Dodgers after 5. The Cubs then picked up 1 in the 6th, and likely a season high 7 in the 7th. AWESOME INNING!
However, as I’ve posted here previously, our worst bullpen in baseball was able to snag defeat from the clutches of victory. The Cubs won’t be a playoff contender until the take care of the bullpen, which is a disaster this season. Note: Wade Miller has REDUCED his ERA to an svelte 10.54. Way to go Wade!
If this doesn’t tell a sad tale – nothing does. Bob Howry started things off in his normal fashion by allowing 3 runs and getting no one out. Bad Bob. The Will ‘Always a Thrill’ Ohman and Guzman combined for a one-two punch. It was a mess, but, in the end, Ohman was charged for a LOSS, and Guzman was charged for a BLOWN SAVE.
Well, the GOOD news is that the Cubs offense was able to rally to take the lead, just too bad the bullpen couldn’t hold them.
GO CUBS! WIN TODAY!!!
Just sitting here watching the Cubs game tonight. Not loving the fact that Marshall just gave up the 2 run long-ball, but, that stuff happens. Izzy had an error. Cubs need to get their bats out now!
I just hope the Cubs can pull it out! Come on Cubbies!!
