Change of Fortune Needed…Quick!

Time to wake up Cubbies. We have been through this before. The bats were quiet to start the second half of the season….but not this quiet.

In keeping with long standing baseball traditions regarding superstions, we here at 100 Year Itch will also change it up…grow a mustache if you will. No preview…No recap, no mention of the teams…no tags…lets see if it breaks us out of the funk

Live game chat below…

  15. 1cubfan2002 says:

  16. MikeyCHX says:

    wow…gotta like the start

  17. MikeyCHX says:

    i told raven about it a long time ago…he knows…hes chasing tail though most of the time…lol

  18. cuban4cubs says:

    you raven is not my best friend.. he tried to tell me about japanese baseball..he said nothing true and told me i was wrong about it.. I LIVE IN TOYKO!!!!!

  19. mikeychx says:

    i know this will turn out to be a lie…but i dont think i want to go to espn anymore…i get banned every other day….you never get to talk baseball…if the opposition hits a HR 25 people stop in to tell you to fuck off….

    its just getting old….and as the postseason approaches it is only gonna get worse

  20. cuban4cubs says:

    its been a week of ground outs, i would rather see the ball in the outfield…

  21. mikeychx says:

    yeah…i agree

    someone needs to look at the tape before this slump started to see what changed….even derreks double was another ground ball

  22. cuban4cubs says:

    shit when is it gonna start.. get the bats started c’mon….

  23. mikeychx says:

    awww. man that tastes good….my first sip of beer for the day

  24. mikeychx says:

    there will never be a big exodus from espn to this place….people like the sugar shack / myspace / social network aspect over there

  25. cuban4cubs says:

    i went to the outback stakehouse for the first time, its been here for about 5 years.. it was so fucking good man.. i now know why americans are so fat…

  26. mikeychx says:

    for sure….all the red meat and blooming onions and beer

  27. 1cubfan2002 says:

    lol…my son got tix for the game in st louis last night vs the marlins…wore his cubs hat, people were yelling to him f**k the Cubs, the Cubs suck, etc

  28. mikeychx says:

    figures…and they say cubs fans have no class

  29. 1cubfan2002 says:

    come one jason, bear down big guy, we need you tonight like never before

  30. cuban4cubs says:

    and if you tell a st louis fan that story they will tell you thats a lie.. those fans are so stuck up on how baseball friendly they are!!!!

  31. mikeychx says:

    i see big mouth is there @ espn…who the fuck is this alex the great guy…cubs fan or not?

  32. 1cubfan2002 says:

    i can’t get this friggin game on my house radio or tv, i am going out to the car now and then to listen to it

  33. 1cubfan2002 says:

    NO, alex the great, I think is bucfanron…i told him in no uncertain terms never to refer to the Cubs as “us” it was an insult to real baseball fans

  34. 1cubfan2002 says:

    ok, walked bako to get to cueto, and IT WORKED!!

  35. 1cubfan2002 says:

    you guys having trouble keeping the espn convo board going? mine won’t download properly the last two nights

  36. mikeychx says:

    yeah…me too…and it always seems to be just in time for some fuck to fuck with us

  37. cuban4cubs says:

    mlb japan has said mark cuban is the front runner and he will sign man ram from la and c.c. from the crew and will also put fukudome in center and fonzi in right… i hope thats not true.. i dont want to pay man ram 200 million…

  39. mikeychx says:

    i wouldnt mind that so much…manny would crush at wrigley

  40. Larry says:

    That was cranked!!

  41. cuban4cubs says:

    #25 could not of come at a better time…. AAWWWWWWW lets go cubs….

  42. mikeychx says:


    was that some offense?

  43. 1cubfan2002 says:

    man ram is not a cubs player, too much me, me, me…he is done pulling in the big $$$, at his age, he’ll be lucky to get a two year deal…he will be a cancer no matter where he goes

  44. Larry says:

    Feels kind of funny to have a lead. Keep it continue!!

  45. mikeychx says:

    larry…im sick f espn……and the trolls…ill be here all day only

  46. cuban4cubs says:

    wit manny and soriano in the outfield would be the wost “D” in the world!!!!!

  47. mikeychx says:

    big suprise…derrek w a ground ball

  48. mikeychx says:

    thats why fukudome in center…he could patrol the gaps

  49. 1cubfan2002 says:

    alex claims to be such a big fan, can’t even spell alfonso’s name right lol

  50. Larry says:

    Ahhh….don’t let those people bust your balls too bad. The Cubs will have to have a complete and total collapse to not make the playoffs. I see where the Dodgers beat the Dbacks today and the Rays beat the Jays. Cubs just need to win and all will be well.

  51. cuban4cubs says:

    you mean the jays beat the rays….

  52. Larry says:

    Marquis needs to be very focused on the strike zone. BOB will kill him/Cubs.

  53. 1cubfan2002 says:

    well, it’s time for Jason to make his case to be included in the plaoff roster. If he steps up and gives us that huge game to stop the skid, maybe people will cut him some slack. He has been pitching well the last month. I get aggravated with him at times, but I am not down on him like a lot of Cub fans

  54. mikeychx says:

    @ larry

    not upset at busting balls…i expect that as a cubs fan

    i am just tried of repeating my self

  55. Larry says:

    cuban – you are correct. I could have sworn I saw a score where the Rays had one by 1 run in extras. Gotta start layin off…..

  56. 1cubfan2002 says:

    why the f**k did wgn carry the sox tonight? like anybody cares? they have a first place team and still can’t sell out the cell

  57. Larry says:

    1cubfan – Marquis has actually pitched very respectably. A lot of fans just don’t like him. He hasn’t always portrayed himself as a team player so I.m sure that counts against him.

  58. mikeychx says:

    sam zell owns part of the sox…and tribune too….tribune owns wgn dont they?

  59. mikeychx says:

    if marquis ould stay away from that one big inning…he would be fine….but he always seems to have the one big inning when the cubs are struugling….which magnifies the mistakes

  60. Larry says:

    It all comes back to them this inning!!

  61. 1cubfan2002 says:

    i thought sam zell was a part owner of the brewers, but i could be mistaken

  62. mikeychx says:

    larry read my comment three back

  63. 1cubfan2002 says:

    lol, how’s this one? alex claims he’s seen more Cubs games than i have…i was a fan before he was born/hatched/shit, however he came out

  64. mikeychx says:

    yeah, maybe hes just buddues with reinsdorf…i dont remember how it all works

    nice double soto….slowly dusting off the cbwebs it looks like

  65. Larry says:

    Yep, the big inning is a killer. That’s why throwing stikes is important. A lot of those big innings start with a streak of “I can’t locate the strike zone.”

  66. 1cubfan2002 says:

    is that what you call a good groundout?

  67. cuban4cubs says:

    dude alex did not know jodi davis and the song harry would sing when he came to bat.. i hope all you can.. i can and i saw it from japan…

  68. Larry says:

    C’mon DeRo – pick up the RBI and grow the lead. Keep it continue!! Tuen the wheel.

  69. Larry says:

    On gamecast that looked like Marquis put some poke behind that swing.

  70. Larry says:

    1cubfan – if it gets us a run, it’s good!!

  71. Larry says:

    cuban – what was the song Harry did for Jody? Bette Davis eyes?

  72. Larry says:

    Marquis is working the count to be in favor of the hitter. Too many balls, not enough strikes.

  73. mikeychx says:

    if we ot all of the guys that normally chat here for one game we would have about 1000 comments i think


    the wisdom cube
    man in the box

    theres like two others i cant think of right now

    i guess what i am saying is we wouldnt be missing much

  74. cuban4cubs says:

    no…… ” jodi, jodi davis king of the wild frontier” HARRY CARRY’S favorite player…

  75. mikeychx says:

    i would love to have go pack and FYP over here….now…but especially for the brewers series

  76. mikeychx says:

    man i hope this isnt the one big inning

  77. cuban4cubs says:

    this is jasons bad inning, he needs a dp now….

  78. Larry says:

    cuban – I am drawing a total blank on that one. I knew Harry really liked Davis, but the Davey Crockett sing along just doesn’t register!! LOL

  79. mikeychx says:

    i invited them over

  80. Larry says:

    No where to put him & tough to double up. Throw strikes, damn it!!

  81. mikeychx says:

    sitiing here quietly..praying

  82. cuban4cubs says:

    it was the first time i saw a cubs game so its kinda burnt in my mind.. after that when ever i saw a game i would sing along wit him and everybody would get a kick out of my 8 year old ass singing in a bar…..

  83. mikeychx says:

    wheere was that on k zone i wonder…it looked like a strike

  84. mikeychx says:

    not so bad…it coulda been much worse

  85. cuban4cubs says:

    wow close one…

  86. Larry says:

    Well, we gave them 1 back, but it could have been worse. Keppenger could have put one in the seats and that would have been that. We go on to fight another inning

  87. cuban4cubs says:

    awwwww i love it yesssssssssssssss

  88. mikeychx says:

    man i wish soriano would hit third or fourth in the lineup

  89. cuban4cubs says:

    c’mon lee no ground balls lets put this game out of reach….

  90. Larry says:

    This is the time when Soriano put the team on his back last year, wasn’t it??

  91. 1cubfan2002 says:

    fons is the man tonite?

  92. mikeychx says:

    you gotta figure lee is due at some point…todays his birthday

  93. mikeychx says:


    yes….how many HRs in september last year? 14?

  94. Larry says:

    cuban – Lee would have to hit a 12 run HR for that comfort level to be achieved.

  95. mikeychx says: least it wasnt a ground ball….things are looking up

  96. mikeychx says:

    i need to clelbrate that dlee fly out with another beer

  97. cuban4cubs says:

    lee would have to get a hit, but he got it in the air no ground ball is a start….

  98. mikeychx says:

    i know that espn board is fucked up but there are so few people over there right now

    so the question is

    are the cubs fans really in hiding

    or just sick of the fucking trolls

    i see the trolls arent even there now

    unless you count alex….which depends on his real affiliation

  99. mikeychx says:

    base hit geo…comn baby

  100. cuban4cubs says:

    mikey i think football is slowing down the boards

  101. 1cubfan2002 says:

    alex’ profile says he is a cards and a sox fan…i think he should change it to alex the moron

  102. mikeychx says:

    tip your cap to phillips there…hell of a play

  103. 1cubfan2002 says:

    now alex is trying to be friendly to me…i think…fuck him

  104. 1cubfan2002 says:

    history is made…phillips made an out…he is a certified Cub killer

  105. mikeychx says:

    i am laughing a little right now…we may actually pass up the number of comments at espn

  106. 1cubfan2002 says:

    is there a comment counter here?

  107. cuban4cubs says:

    yo mikey do you have the cal game cause your in cali.. they are thrashing wash st…

  108. mikeychx says:

    yeah…at te top…we are at 108 and espn is at 112

  109. Larry says:

    Marquis needed a neat 1-2-3 inning and got it. He may give us 7 solid innings. The bats need to drum up some more support just in case Lou decides to use Howry!!

  110. mikeychx says:

    cal is the second best team in the pac 10 for sure….its not even close….ASU and Oregon ar both overrated…but if beanie wells is hurt – USC should run the table

  111. cuban4cubs says:


  112. mikeychx says:

    speaking of using howry….where the fuck has marshall been?

  113. Larry says:

    Did Lou leave him at the gas station on northeast Ohio??

  114. 1cubfan2002 says:

    well, here’s a useless comment to help out lol

  115. mikeychx says:

    never mind …marshall is scheduled to start tomorrow

  116. mikeychx says:

    only one comment behind with this one…haha

  117. 1cubfan2002 says:

    i couldn’t believe it when i read that story…i lmao…it was hysterical

  118. Larry says:

    Work the count Reed. Cueto is currently a little wild. If he grooves one, paste it.

  119. mikeychx says:

    do you have a link?

    i wanna read that one…sounds funny as hell

  120. Larry says:

    Too soon to PH??

  121. Larry says:

    I guess so. Time to help yourself, Jason.

  122. mikeychx says:

    i dunno, i was thinking that too….get him out BEFORE the big inning…but man…if its howry i say fuck no

  123. Larry says:

    Into the bullpen – time to rock, Cubbies!!

  124. mikeychx says:

    i gotta say something i didnt wanna say at espn

    the cubs have a 99.3% chance of making the playoffs right?

    the angels who are 17 games up in their division are a 99.9% chance to make the playoffs…

    so despite this little losing streak, we only have a 1/2 percent chance less of making the post season then a team that is 17 up


  125. mikeychx says:

    3 HRS


  126. Larry says:

    Mikey – here is the link to the article in the Sun-Times,CST-SPT-cub06.article

  127. Larry says:

    Holy shit!! Who woke the Fonz up??? I am glad they did!!

  128. mikeychx says:

    fucking lou…why didnt he go with the team?

    thats pretty funny though?

  129. Larry says:

    Barring a collapse that would require the Cubs to essentially lose out – and hell even the Nationals can’t do that – the playoffs are a reality. How we get there and how the Cubs feel about themselves will depend on well they finish. Not lookin too bad tonight, but then again, the Reds laid a ton of runs on the Cubs last night so I’ll wait until the 9th is over to count this one in the W column.

  130. mikeychx says:

    yeah…now i see…i wish howry was left at some truck stop on that trip…or out in a corn field

  131. Larry says:

    GEO = ROY

  132. mikeychx says:

    im with you larry…cautiously optomistic

    milwaukee only up by one…top nine

  133. mikeychx says:

    GEO = ROY

    / its science

  134. 1cubfan2002 says:

    careful fons…the next one may come vvvvveeeeeeerrrrrrryyyyyyyyy close

  135. mikeychx says:

    did cuban fall down drunk…or is he just asleep…or translating for some idiot sailor?

  136. mikeychx says:

    yes….fonzie may wanna wear the facemask on his helmet next AB

  137. mikeychx says:

    in a developing story…if the dodges continue to win….we dont have to face good pitching in the post season

  138. 1cubfan2002 says:

    cubs will not lose out in the playoffs, and i am hoping this little blip makes them stronger…i agree with mikey’s posts the last couple days…nobody can avoid a five or six game losing streak over the course of a season

  139. mikeychx says:

    wow…breaking out in a big way

  140. mikeychx says:

    we were lucky to never have had a losing streak the whole sesaon

    when you go 110 games and your worst streak had been four games….well you are a pretty fucking good team

  141. mikeychx says:

    base hit ties it in milwaukee

  142. Larry says:

    Very nice to see all this. Reminds me of how spoiled we have been all season. And Mikey, you are spot on with the analysis of other teams losing streaks. It happens and is part of the game over a 162 game season. It certainly appears as if the bats are alive and well again.

  143. mikeychx says:

    i cant believe that milwaukee is letting sheets go after a complete game

  144. mikeychx says:

    its a final in milwaukee….1-0 brewers

  145. Larry says:

    MIL just went final 1-0

  146. 1cubfan2002 says:

    crew wins 1-0, complete game by sheets…yost will have his arm duct-taped back on

  147. mikeychx says:

    i wish cuban was here….does anyone know when the japaneses league season is over?

  148. Larry says:

    1cubfan – might need some baling wire as well LOL

  149. mikeychx says:

    i was wondering because it would be nice if it was this month…then the cubs should hire whoever fukudomes hitting coach was in japan for the rest of the year for $1M consulting fee to remind kosuke that he is a power hitter and not ichiro suzuki

  150. mikeychx says:

    1cub…what was his pitch count?

  151. Larry says:

    Look like Japanese baseball wraps up their season around October 9th.

  152. mikeychx says:

    i know you guys wont want me to get ahead of myself…but do you guys realize we are going to be a contending team every year for the next five?

    whoever buys this team will makesure of it…but look at who we have locked up

    its part of the reason i started this site

    even if the itch gets scratched this year, 100 Year Itch will stand as a remider of all of the shit we had to endure form all of the assholes out there

  153. 1cubfan2002 says:

    sheets threw 120

  154. mikeychx says:


    i take it all back jason

  155. mikeychx says:

    why would anyone let sheets throw more than 95?

    thanks neddy

  156. mikeychx says:

    wow…derrek another double

    but why all of the ground balls?

  157. 1cubfan2002 says:


  158. Larry says:

    Marquis has gotten us through the 7th inning – his pitch count is at 93 – maybe one more inning , but I would put the Shark & Wood out there for an inning apiece.

  159. Larry says:


  160. cuban4cubs says:

    i’m back had a quick booty call knock on my door and she was wanting the dick… wow they broke out , holy shit 3 dingers…

  161. Larry says:

    I guess Soriano wanted Jason to enjoy his moment in the limelight a little longer so he just singled this time

  162. mikeychx says:

    a lot of things happened tonight

    hoffpauir and reed started in place of edmonds and kosuke

    geovany soto hit fifth behind ramirez

    soriano redicovered his stroke

    marquis didnt have his one big inning

    hopefully lou is remembering all of this…because i dont giive a fuck if we are paying kosuke $20 m a year…you dont hit – you sit

  163. Larry says:

    I fell really good about saying the losing streak is OVAH!!

  164. Larry says:

    Smart move to give Soto a blow. Little break when the game’s outcome is pretty much determined will help these guys stay sharp.

  165. 1cubfan2002 says:

    here’s a thought…for some extra rest…since they have expanded rosters, why not start marshall, and just make it a six man rotation for the last three weeks?

  166. Larry says:

    C’mon Micah, drill one

  167. mikeychx says:

    marshall is actually starting tomorrow

  168. mikeychx says:

    espn cub board…we may not out comment them….but thats gotta be an all time low over there for a cubs thread

    trolls chaced everyone these past few days i guess

  169. Larry says:

    1cubfan – I think it would be a smart move. Rest the arms a little more between starts and see how it goes.

  170. cuban4cubs says:

    on the fukudumb thang he is done for the year he has never hit in the late season and in the post season.. the dragons loved his bat for 3/4th’s of the season but he saw the bench alot near the end and post season.. it was a blessing he went on the DL at the end of last season, cause they went on to win it all…

  171. mikeychx says:

    lol…reds announcer just asked about marquis…

    “how can you have a seven pitch and a nine pitch inning with a guy that had so much control problem early in the game?”

  172. 1cubfan2002 says:

    yeah, i would like to see the effort from marshall that marquis gave us tonight…fans have been a little hard on him, but he’s pitched well the last month, and he stepped it up tonight…i’m giving him a standing o

  173. mikeychx says:

    what happened to you cuban…fall down drunk?

  174. cuban4cubs says:

    ronny in left has he ever played in the outfield?

  175. cuban4cubs says:

    mikey had to take care of some pussy it was dripping all over me…..

  176. mikeychx says:

    well i gotta say i owe the biggest apology off all to rayn dempster

    read his post frm preseason

    preface…i posted a retractiona nad an apology later

  177. mikeychx says:

    it wasnt the kind where it was a warm cup of water then?

  178. mikeychx says:

    well for the few guys we had here tonight…we had better conversation…troll free….and for the five or six of us who havebeen here…or was it four…we kept good pace…without the bullshit….let that be a lesson to you guys….haha

  179. cuban4cubs says:

    no this pussy is one of my main stays, she is a good girl that i should marry but i’m a fucking fool and want to tasta as many as i can.. we have been hittin it for the last 5 or 6 years… but i know the day i ask her it will be to late…

  180. mikeychx says:

    well my first marriage i married a girl that any guy would want to fuck….you know the high maint type…short lived marriage

    marry the marrying type….not the “club girl”

  181. mikeychx says:

    wow…how many fucking errors this week?

  182. Larry says:

    What happened??

  183. cuban4cubs says:

    yeah she is not the club girl more of the family type the perfect wife and mom.. i’m just stupid and dont want to grow up… we have tossed it around and its 100% she is down but for how long? i hope i dont wait to long to get over this love for pussy..

  184. Larry says:

    If Marquis does not get this win I will not watch the rest of the year. This is ridiculous.

  185. Larry says:

    Pitching change?

  186. mikeychx says:

    ill be back in 10 minutes…can i trust you guys with this lead?

  187. mikeychx says:

    if i dont get to talk to you guys because the game is over i will definetly be here tomorrow for marshalls start….

  188. 1cubfan2002 says:
