KABOOOOOM! Here come the CUBBIES! After waking up from a tough loss Monday, the Cubs and Ramirez pounded the Mets 10-1. An EXCELLENT start from Z helped a lot. Z needed a great start, and got one tonight!
A few things looked very positive tonight:
1) Theriot at lead-off = off the heezy fasheezy!
2) Z solid 8 inning start, and allowing 1 ER. Also, he got a hit and raised his AVG to .250 on the season!
3) Ramirez beat up the Mets for a GRAND SALAMI!
Still worried about:
1) D. LEE! We miss you!
Now the Cubs can win the last 2 games against the Mets and take a 3winning streak into the weekend series against the SUX!
I’m back! Thanks for the kind words about my dissaperance. I’m in Omaha this week for work. So, I’m going to catch up!!!
Let me catch you up on where I’ve been:
1) I heard Super-fan Patty was raving with the Teletubbies. Sadly, it was true. I think he’s trying to lick the yellow one. Rumor is this was in San Fransisco. Bud Light, it’s a helluva a drug!
2) Then I heard stories of Nick Brabson crusing the desert with our old friend Keyshawn Johnson! I caught up with Brabson and F**K Keyshawn in the Mojave desert. Brabson and Keyshawn have worked together to produce the wildly popular, “Pimp my Van”. No, thumbs up to YOU Mr. Brabson! Mini Keyshawn appears to be looking out the window….
3) I found Nick on Patty’s last post! He’s seen better days!
4) I was in Chicago meeting with Tribune Executives to discuss our final purchase price of the Cubs….stay tuned for more posts!!
Well, I’m back, and BETTER THAN EVER!!!!
RAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! GO CUBS!!!!!!!

Ryne Sandberg may be well-suited for managing. He was ejected Monday night in the Class A Peoria Chiefs’ game in Fort Wayne, Ind.
The visiting Chiefs beat the host Fort Wayne Wizards, 10-4, but Sandberg wasn’t around to see the finale.
The trouble may have started Saturday. The Chiefs staff, which includes pitching coach David Rosario, apparently wasn’t happy with the calls by home plate umpire Bronson Martinez while Jose Ceda was pitching.
On Monday, Rosario felt Peoria starter Rafael Dolis was being squeezed, and voiced his opinion from the dugout in the bottom of the third inning. Martinez ejected Rosario while he was still in the dugout. Rosario then went onto the field to argue face-to-face with Martinez, and covered home plate with dirt.
After Rosario exited, Martinez approached Sandberg and the two exchanged a few words. Martinez quickly tossed Sandberg, the Hall of Famer’s first ejection as a manager.
In his playing career, which spanned from 1981-94, and again from 1996-97, Sandberg was ejected twice. This is his first season as a manager.
The Chiefs snapped a 1-1 tie in the fifth against Fort Wayne starter Aaron Breit and reliever Wilton Lopez. Yusuf Carter led off with a solo homer that initially looked like a triple until the umpires got together and ruled the ball hit the netting for a homer. Jim Adduci singled and advanced to third on a one-out hit by Matt Camp. Dylan Johnston walked to load the bases, and Alfred Joseph hit a two-run single. Russ Canzler added a two-run double to go ahead, 6-1.
Dolis walked four and struck out five over 4 1/3 innings. Alex Maestri (2-0) picked up the win in relief, pitching 2 1/3 innings. He gave up one run on two hits
Take Me Out to the Ballgame with Harry
That’s hard to write Round 1: Cardinals. The Cubs were finally put down in the rubber game by Pujols extra-inning home run. The only thing comforting Sunday was we were drinking beer at Hooters, and Barrett continues to rock the long ball.
Even thought the Cardinals TRIED to give the Cub’s multiple chances, we couldn’t capitalize on their mistakes. Round 2 in STL will see an improved Cubs team. At least that’s the hope.
So let’s recap the weekend:
The Good, Bad, and the Ugly
- Barrett. Barrett had one heck of a series. He’s been on a home run run here lately, and he’s in the top ten in HR in the NL right now. Go number 8!
- Jason Marquis. Wow. What a game Saturday. Marquis doesn’t look like his old self yet and he’s had solid starts. Hope this continues throughout the season. He’s now 2-1 with a 1.88 ERA. Even Ohman (puke) couldn’t blow it for the Cubs. He brought his svelte 6.00 ERA into the 8 and 9 innings on Sat. Thanks dude.
- Cubs Hitting (Sat and Sun only). The Cubs finally broke out of their hitting freeze Saturday and Sunday, and scored plenty of runs Saturday and Sunday. Friday they could only manage one run, in a game they should have won!
- Friday’s loss. Typical. Take a 1-0 lead into the seventh, and give up the 2-run long ball. Stupid Preston Wilson. Lily has wasted TWO awesome starts on a team that refuses to score any runs for him. Reminds me of the run support Maddux used to get. Lilly has pitched 13 innings in his last two starts, allowed 6 hits and 3 runs and is 0-2 for his efforts.
- Sunday’s loss. A windy day in Chicago made for a wild score. Combined the teams scored 21 runs. Too bad, but the Cubbies just got outslugged. Stupid Pujols.
- Pujols and Wilson. Whose home runs beat our Cubbies.
- Freaky Friday. A triple play? Nada. Some of the ‘wierdest’ baseball ever. Welcome to Chicago Lou.
- Cubs hitting Friday. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HIT THE DAMN BALL!
