Series Streak On the Line

I hate that headline…should I change it? Did I just jinx the Cubs? The Cubs are going for their eighth straight series win today as they take on Washington at Wrigley Field.

I don’t want to do a full preview that includes pitching matchups. Why? Becuase Jason Bergmann…Who? (Seriously Who?) goes for the Nationals today. He of a 2-9 record and a 4.50 ERA. He is facing Rich Harden. You know, the Rich “This Could be a No Hitter” Harden.

Seriously, did I just jinx the Cubs?

I hate to ever look past any games but from time to time you are going to see me mail in a preview…usually on a Sunday too…It’s usually my golf day – but I am tired for a different reason…

BozeCubbies is back and will be at the game today, and we will be trying to do a live chat under this thread and not under the live game chat page.

By the way, I am not trying to really jinx the Cubs…because we know jinxes and curses don’t exist. If they did  – the Red Sox and the White Sox would still be pining for a World Series ring along with us. I just dont feel like doing all of the work because I stayed up on the west coast to watch USA Basketball  win the Gold Medal last night….I am whipped…I just wanna enjoy the game like the rest of you. See you here in a couple of hours.

    section 123-row10-mb u will see me on tv,these are my seats always,3 seats to every home game,well most,sometimes,rarely i only get two but its always these seats,ive been on tv many times my friends say cause im kinda behind home plate just a bit to the the left if your looking at it from your tv,and obviously im 10 rows back in this section,still real close to the action though.

  2. bozecubbies says:

  3. bozecubbies says:

  4. bozecubbies says:

    harden has never faced the nats,can u imagine how many k’s he will have against the worst hitting team in the game,im gonna say 13… say more but lou will pull him

  5. bozecubbies says:

    wind seems to be blowing in by the look of the flags,not to hard though.

  6. bozecubbies says:

    i don’t think lee is gonna play today

  7. bozecubbies says:

    dunno hes has not been on the field at all since i been here

  8. bozecubbies says:

    “We know the Cubs shit the bed today…yes journalistically irresponsible to use such language we know. But is there a better way to say it?”

    i just read that,thats fucking hilarious how you put it!!!!!!!!!!LOVE IT,IM STILL LAUGHING!!!!

  9. bozecubbies says:

    holy shit i think thats what 4,5 in a row in games

  10. mikeychx says:

    in case you didnt read the post…boze is blogging live from wrigley today….ill be right back, im going to go scare up some dudes form espn

  11. bozecubbies says:

    kicking ass now

  12. mikeychx says:

    man…youre a good luck charm there today 3-0…nice to see soto hitting again

  13. bozecubbies says:


  14. mikeychx says:

    well hopefully some of the regulars come over here to talk…i sam cheaux, and illini, and cubs2002…so hopefully they stop by and say hi

  15. mikeychx says:

    tough crowd to get off of those boards though…

  16. bozecubbies says:

    yeah i know it

  17. bozecubbies says:

    fucker looked foul from where im at

  18. mikeychx says:

    thats the first run allowed in the first five innings in the entire series

  19. bozecubbies says:

    huh didnt know that

  20. Larry says:

    Hey, Bo. Good to see you seeing some good action at Wrigley!! GO CUBS!! LD

  21. mikeychx says:

    yeah…strating pitching has been dominating thru five…even marquis game

  22. mikeychx says:

    too bad the winds blowing in…that was out

  23. mikeychx says:

    check it out…larry stopped by…what up larry?

  24. mikeychx says:

    man…they are seeing this guy well

  25. bozecubbies says:

    damn if the wind was blowing out both of those last two woulda been gone

  26. mikeychx says:

    i know your eon your pda, but larry stopped by/….scroll up…the rest of the guys at espn seem to be ignoring me….haha.

  27. bozecubbies says:

    hey larry if your still here,i guess those guys over at espn would rather talk shit and argue all day,i dunno……..i can get over to espn i think,mb i will try to round some up

  28. mikeychx says:

    5ks already for harden

  29. Larry says:

    They get a little crazy sometimes – I tried the other night to give the itch a plug – a few checked it out – but habits are hard to break. If you could recruit raven and a few others you would see a lot of others follow. Try to get Chicubs725. She’s a good lady – cute too!! But some idiots pretty much ran her off the board on Friday. What a shame, Get us some runs, BoBo!! Larry

  30. bozecubbies says:

    here is my argument………hardin is awesome,he only throws two pitches,fastball,chageup
    howry fucking sucks and he only throws two pitches,fastball,slider……….dunno if thats a argument,but im just sayin

  31. mikeychx says:

    yeah…i tried with raven once or twice…i think that the troll factor keeps them there though…it is pretty fun to smack them around….

    maybe i will invite some brewers fans over for a live chat…not this style but the real kind…

  32. bozecubbies says:

    will do larry,so far this yr all the games i have attended they have only lost 4 times…… pretty sure its 4,its on my calender at home

  33. mikeychx says:

    jimmy, jimmy, jimmy

  34. bozecubbies says:

    great mikey bring the brewer fans over and we will have a “shit talking trash blog day”,lmao!

  35. Larry says:

    GoPack & FYP (fire yost please) would be 2 great pickups. Quality people that will pull for the Cubs once the Brewers are out of the picture.

  36. mikeychx says:

    ive invited alot of them to be authors and none has accepted….wierd huh

  37. mikeychx says:

    yeah…i know them well….i want to interview FYP for a short subject on “The Mind of a Brewers Fan”

    I got one coming this week that should be a good read…an interview with a cub hater

  38. Larry says:

    I thought Wisdom Cube was going to do something? Wasn’t someone else going to submit the troll of day comment? Maybe they don’t understand what you are asking for … possibility???

  39. bozecubbies says:

    Maybe they don’t understand what you are asking for … possibility???

    i think thats a good possibility or they just don’t care too

  40. mikeychx says:

    yeah…wisdom cube and me and you…man in the box was recruited from the comment section at view from the bleachers….a highly trafficed cubs blog site….i just want all of you dudes to do a better job than jay fucking mariotti with our “fan” insight and analysis…i like reading other fans perspective….espn and the rest are just the same associated press story with a box score….thats no fun

  41. mikeychx says:

    the passionate insight and nuggets are the best

  42. bozecubbies says:

    interview with a cub hater……….mikey u gotta find the worst,i mean the fucking absolute most idiotic retarted dumbass cub hater around…….now that would be funny,wouldnt make much sense why he hates the cubs prolly but it would be funny as hell.

  43. Larry says:

    6 K’s for Harden – his fastball must have the wicked good movement today!!

  44. bozecubbies says:

    yeah i can hear the pop in the mit from where im at,hes getting up there

  45. Larry says:

    7 K’s – Bo one of the biggest Cub haters – and he is an absolute idiot – is an ESPN user – goes by Zor chu, but has many other names as he gets suspended so much!!

  46. bozecubbies says:

    larrry i sent u a email in response to ur request about tix in sept…….check it when u can

  47. bozecubbies says:

    Zor chu huh,we gotta get his ass here then,and find his other names,some of those guys just amaze the hell out of me,just how damn stupid they are and have absolutely no knowledge of baseball or the cubs

  48. mikeychx says:

    i shut him up yesterday…when you get home or if youre infornt of the computer now…just read the last 100 or so comments from yesterdays game…he would be fine, but hes an amature cub hater

  49. mikeychx says:

    zor chu


    most of thes guys if you take away 100 years, 1908, goats, bartman, and curses…they dont have alot to say

  50. bozecubbies says:

    mikey who was that one moron cub fan,cubs2000forever?? or somin close to that,remember his dumbass last year,boy he was a disgrace to cub fans

  51. mikeychx says:

    the guy that was guaranteeing world series and when we told him to shut up he siad we wernt cub fans because we didnt have faith in our team???

    cubsbest i think

  52. bozecubbies says:

    yup thats it,i remember his guarantee,idiot…have you seen him on the espn forums this yr?

  53. mikeychx says:

    not under that name, but i could guess hes about a half dozen others….someone yesterday said we were going to go 29-4 down the stretch and win 108 games

  54. bozecubbies says:

    wtf i know he aint k’d 19??thats what it says on the leds????

  55. Larry says:

    Harden’s right at 100 pitches so I say he finshes this inning and we go with Marmol & Wood to finish up and take another series win. Everybody OK with that??!!

  56. bozecubbies says:

    k its says 10 now

  57. bozecubbies says:

    sounds good larry

  58. Larry says:

    Mikey that was that nutty broad Bwigglesworth or something like that. She is certifiable!!

  59. mikeychx says:

    id like to see the shark…but it looks ike marmol is up

    11ks strike out the side!!!

  60. Larry says:

    Bo, another inning if Lou decides to extend – I don’t think he will – could get to 13K’s

  61. bozecubbies says:

    i thought his ass was a sox fan,remember last yr when the crowd started saying all his bad movies,that was some funny shit

  62. bozecubbies says:

    yeah if lou would let him id be right with my guess on 13,but i see someone in the pen so i think he is done

  63. 1cubfan2002 says:

    lol, our resident clown 2008cubs4ever is who you’re looking for…how about a battle royal between him and zorchu or bucsfanron? Hope you’re enjoying the game there boze, i have to assume now that harden’s over 100 pitches that Lou’s going to the pen.

  64. mikeychx says:

    save him….for the love of GOD dont send Harden back out

  65. bozecubbies says:

    hey i got ?,i heard this somewhere else,whadda think,big z as a dh in the playoffs???

  66. Larry says:

    Mikey – 40 minutes from Winston Salem & an hour north of Charlotte

  67. mikeychx says:

    i chased zor chu way to easy yesterday…not much of a fight

  68. bozecubbies says:

    2008cubs4ever …………AWESOME BRO…………thats the one i was thinking of too,is his dumbass still around??

  69. mikeychx says:

    wow…cusak brings up a good point

    our waiver pickups….reed johnson and jimmy edmonds have been huge….and they were castoffs

  70. Larry says:

    Biig Z as the DH? I’d rather see the Cubs have him focus on pitching. But the dude does love to hit and ha shown that he can. Interesting proposition, but I still say his main job should be on the mound.

  71. bozecubbies says:

    1cubfan2002….yeah its actually nice here today,usally on sundays everyone is drunk and stupid…………but yeah im having fun…..battle royal………too funny!!!!

  72. mikeychx says:

    110 RBIs from CF position…holy shit!

  73. bozecubbies says:


  74. Larry says:

    IMO, Edmonds & Johnson are the club MVPs. I know others will get the nod, i.e., Soriano, Dempster, etc, but those 2 guys have given us over 90 RBI’s and outstanding defensive play. Edmonds can still flash the leather and Johnson’s catch when he crashed the wall is a season long web gem.

  75. mikeychx says:

    KOSUKE… are forgiven

  76. mikeychx says:

    yeah but larry…..they werent traded for…we got them for nothing… crazy is that?

  77. bozecubbies says:

    that reed catch in the wall had to be the best ive ever seen

  78. 1cubfan2002 says:

    glad to see kosuke get a big hit, hopefully break out now, and start heating up for the postseason

  79. Larry says:

    Makes Hendry look like a freakin genius – that’s all I can say about that. Ask Bo how keen he was on the Edmonds signing at first!! I thought Johnson would be solid all the way. That must have been some meeting Lou had with KF in his office before the game today!!

  80. bozecubbies says:

    lol.larrry……..keen on edmonds……….i didnt know wtf to think.

  81. mikeychx says:

    i gotta be honest….this shit is getting pretty hard to contain and not talk about….you know what i am talking about too

  82. bozecubbies says:

    i know i was bitching

  83. mikeychx says:

    wow 31 hits in 70 innings for Marmol…things i didnt know volume III

  84. mikeychx says:

    so bo…you gonna post some pictures of this game later…ill help walk you thru it just in case

  85. bozecubbies says:

    ok sounds good

  86. bozecubbies says:

    my blackberry has only 10% power left so if i lose you guys i will catch up later

  87. Larry says:

    It was just great to see Kosuke connect and deliver a big hit to pad the lead. People have been merciless on him. I’m not saying he is not deserving of some of it, but you need to support the whole team, not just the guys who are going good.

  88. mikeychx says:

    im with you on that one larry….why does marmol do this to my stomach though

  89. bozecubbies says:


  90. mikeychx says:

    hate to be a homer but that caught the inside corner before it tailed off….good called strike

  91. bozecubbies says:

    so larry do u think fukudome was all-star worthy………i don’t??

  92. Larry says:

    The error opened the door. Just need to be tough and either get the 3rd out or limit the damage. We have a 5 run lead – just so we don’t pull a Pittsbough and cost Harden the W

  93. Larry says:

    Yes, way to be tough!!

  94. mikeychx says:

    no way was he all star worthy…but he has been solid in the outfield despite his woes at the plate….there has been no let up in his game, whereas if that were say sammy sosa…he would be pouting

  95. Larry says:

    No, Kosuke was not all star worthy, but the fans voted him in and I guarantee a lot of the vote that put him in the game came from Japan.

  96. mikeychx says:

    its a shark siting…..

  97. mikeychx says:

    I think I am developing a man crush on Jeff Samardzija

  98. Larry says:

    Put another way, his performance in the ASG was far superior to Dan Uggla’s!!!!

  99. Larry says:

    Mikey – you’re invading Chicubs725 territory – she refers to him as my Jeffy!!

  100. mikeychx says:

    yeah…dan was str-uggla-ing that game for sure

  101. mikeychx says:

    i should tell her that there is a whole girl site dedicated to jeffy…they linked here a couple of times when i bring up the shark

  102. Larry says:

    I would guarantee that would produce traffic!!!

    1 out…2 more for the W

  103. bozecubbies says:

    im gonna try somin mikey

  104. mikeychx says:

    thanks for stopping over today larry…and to everyone else who came by

  105. Larry says:

    30 games over .500……AMAZING!!! Great job, Cubs.

  106. mikeychx says:


  107. bozecubbies says:

    i just tried to post a pic and i got this thing all fucked up now

  108. mikeychx says:

    lol…i dont know if you can post a pic in commnets

  109. bozecubbies says:

    ok this thing is dead i’ll get with ya later and we’ll figure out these pics

  110. Larry says:

    Mikey – no prob, always enjoy a Cub win!! I’ll try to bring a few good folks over and will periodically plug the site if that is OK with you. LMK. Good job on setting this up. Good blogging at the game, Bo. I’ll talk to you later. Larry

  111. mikeychx says:

    alright…good chat today…ill stop in later

  112. mikeychx says:

    larry…if you would like, i need a few more authors…if you want shoot me an email to
