Do I sense a new BEARD by three of the bearded bears?!?!

GO CUBS GO! Talk about a good old fashioned ass whooping!
Cubs Pitching. Ted Lily notched 7 strike-outs and only allowed 3 runs in 7 innings of work. Wuertz and Bobby Howry each pitched a scoreless inning to finish up the Cubs victory!
Cubs Hitting. Lee (18) and Ramirez (22) each homered and Jones went 3-4 with 2 RBI’s. Craig Monroe added 2 runs in his pitch hit appearance. Great hitting today, and frankly, it’s about time the Cubbies got there bats into the game!
Bearded Bears in Attendance. A few of the Bearded Bears were in attendance today and enjoyed the Cubs crushing the Cardinals. In particular, I’d like to see how Brad Patterson is doing today with two losses today. First, his beloved Cardinals were slaughtered by the Cubs, and then, the Cameltoes were SHOCKED by F*ck Keyshawn in a stunning upset!
While I was over at Gayle Fidler’s house I happened to notice this old pic of one of the Fidler boys…………

Happy Late Memorial Day!! Hope everyone’s was good. The weekend would have been a little better if the Cubs were better than the Bad News Bears.
This weekend has brought up one irrefutable fact for the ’07 Cubs – YOU WILL NOT WIN WITH A PIECE OF CRAP BULLPEN. Why does the Cubs management never seem to get this little gap corrected?
Let’s see, the last time the Cubs had a solid bullpen was…. oh yeah….2003….when they were one out from the World Series. Might I add, that our closer from that season, Joe Borowski is second in the majors in saves in 2007.
In order to not give myself a coronary, I’m only going to focus on one game, Tuesday May 29, 2007.
TUESDAY 5.29 GAME
In a quick recap, the Cub’s managed to rally on Theriot’s (PH Homer) 2 run HR in the bottom of the seventh. However, a DETERMINED Cubs bullpen made sure the Cub’s rally would be short lived. Tonight’s helper was Wuertz. To be fair to Wuertz, he’s been the best Cub’s reliever so far this year. Tonight, he allowed 4 runs on 3 hits, and walked 2. He was credited with one whole inning worked. Slap Hands! His ERA shot up to 3.13.
Here’s an awesome Cubs Bullpen stat, W-L Record: 4-14! Maybe Wade Miller can chime in with his 10.54 ERA?
I can’t type anymore about this bullpen. This team is scoring runs, but ALLOWING too many.
We’ll take that 2 of 3 – Thank You Very Much!! Even though the Cubs were beat up by the long-ball yesterday, they still took the series by winning 2 of 3!!
Woo-Hoo and GO CUBBIES!
I found this on the Internet, so, it must be true… but, the CUBS HAVE THE LOSING-EST BULLPEN IN BASEBALL!!!
Puke…. I know that Nick will defend this group of misfits, but, yesterday’s game was a new low – even for the Cubs.
Michael Wuertz had pitched 1 1/3 innings, giving up one walk. Will Ohman struck out four over 1 2/3 innings. Then it was Dempster’s turn. The bullpen, which now has 11 losses, most in the National League, has been puzzling to Piniella.
BEARDED BEARS THOUGHT: I bet it has been puzzling, Lou. This bullpen is AWFUL!Our relief pitching needs an overhaul if this ins’t fixed quickly. Thursday’s game should be a BIG wake-up to Cubs management that something is serously wrong here!
