14) Reinstate official naptime before first pitch... him and junior can sleep on cots next to each other if they desire.

15) Cubs may win this series, if it gets rained out and rescheduled to say, August. (cue justin timberlakes cry me a river). Because this team doesn't look like it can beat much of anyone lately with any sort of consistency over the past 2 weeks.

Single words just dont cut it,

but this is what I got...

Once again the Cubs were too limp-dick to come up with the big hit. Randy Wells was doing his best, trying to remind them how it’s done by serving up the long ball.

Today the Cubs will mail it in on the final game of the series. The hitters are taking naps, again, during batting practice to help in their eternal quest of stranding runs.

The pitchers will be replaced by little leaguers to keep the Marlins from scoring runs. The defense will continue playing dodgeball, passing out souvenirs and make us long for the days of Neifi’s defense (and bat, you pitiful pieces of shit!)

Who's Hot

Our old buddy Eric Patterson - .222/.258/.444/.702 going into today - is showing promise, or at least is not as nauseating as the Ghosts of ThirdBase Past, also known as Aramis Ramirez.

Who's Not

Jeff “the Muffin” Baker is backing up so bad it might be time to grab a match, point his rear at the clubhouse and get our Barn Burning Party on taking all these gutless assholes out!

Conclusions

Fuck it, just watch reruns of Full House. It still aint as bad as this crap

DLee jogging off?

Anyone else notice today how Derrek Lee is jogging when coming off the field? His back is totally straight up when he runs—just like last year when his back discs were flarring up.

Anyone else notice this????

Yes, George

good catch.

I have also been saying all year that Ramirez looks to be about 20 pounds down, and has absolutely NO strength.

Why they keep sending these two guys out there, when they are OBVIOUSLY hurting, is beyond comprehension
