Shaking My Head Still – But I am Here to Chat

“We’re playing like we’re waiting to get beat,” manager Lou Piniella said. “You don’t have a big enough lead in September to play ball like that.”

                                       – Lou Piniella

So, we meet here again. Lamenting the slide…the swoon…the choke. What ever you want to call it. We were going to invite some trolls in here to remind us how the Cubs have historically have been Completely Useless By September.

I gotta say…I usually am the last one to crack.  You know you are going to lose a series here or there…you are gonna drop a game. I spend days and nights telling people to calm down. But who is going to tell people to calm down if I can’t do it? Because frankly…I can’t.

I am drinking the troll Kool Aid right now.

Listen…I am not being unrealistic. I am 99% sure we will make the postseason. I am a bit afraid of what will happen once we get there. I say that as I sit here today….being completly honest with everyone. I want my mind to be changed…FAST.

I dont want to be that faithless fuck who gets bullied into believing his team will choke…

Help me the fuck out fellas…just play ball and stop pressing already…the pitching is there – just relax and get some hits!

Lilly faces Looper tonight. This is the extent of the preview….the preview is a fucking plea.

I am asahmed of myself. Tell me how bad of a fan I am by chatting with me below…

    my live blog isnt very lively…this makes me sad…let me go fish some fuckers from espn

  2. Larry says:

    I’m hooked – how you doing Mikey? Big inning ahead? I hope so.

  3. mikeychx says:

    cerainly would be nice…im outta my effing head withthis “streak”

  4. Larry says:

    Don’t lose faith. As bad as we have been, the Brewers have been unable to make any head way – still have a 4.5 gm lead assuming the Cubs counter with a win tonight.

  5. mikeychx says:

    yeah..thankfully…read my last few posts…it goes down that path basically

    inspired….jittery…snarky….pissed….enraged

    just want this to end already

  6. Larry says:

    It ends beginning tonight. I base that on the simple fact of the replay I saw on ESPN where Lilly just barrel rolled Molina (or whoever is catching tonight). That was a message to both the Cards and the Cubs. We are going to kick ass and take names tonight!! Too bad he chanced it – he would have scored on the next AB and we need every run we can scrape together. Can Lou please just walk Pujols if there are men on base? Even if the sacks are loaded, walk him. 1 run is better than multiples!!

  7. Larry says:

    Bullpen feasting should be coming up

  8. Larry says:

    Had a shot – 2 men LOB again. The bats just aren’t working. We had so much 2 out success for the first 3/4 of the season and now….ZILCH.

  9. mikeychx says:

    well…it looks like i didint miss much…glad to see we still are in front…read your comments…i hope that that was the “pivotal” moment

  10. Larry says:

    Lilly just crushed Molina!!

  11. mikeychx says:

    i know…i wish i could downlaod and keep that on the site….molina has a deep thigh bruise…aka charlie horse

  12. Larry says:

    Cubs are just as flat as the Cards. We got lucky and scored some runs in the 2nd.

  13. Larry says:

    Mikey, if you come across a clip of that play at the plate, please email and I will do the same. Now we need to hold on. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lou let the starter finish today.

  14. mikeychx says:

    just need to let loose and have fun…seriously….playing way too tight…there is no reason the cubs shouldnt be up like 10 games right now with all of those brewers losses

  15. Larry says:

    Ditto on your last comment. Thank God the Brewers have sucked almost as bad!!

  16. Larry says:

    This game tonight will go along way to righting was has been wrong – assuming we hang on. I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t go out and really tie one on

  17. mikeychx says:

    i am tentatively agreeing with you…but i wanna see two in a row before i strat to feel better

  18. Larry says:

    Who pitches tomorrow? Marquis?

  19. Larry says:

    AHHH… Harden is coming back. Let’s hope he is sharp and give at least 6 strong innings. I hope he lets them hit it and doesn’t drive up PC with double digit K’s. The Cubs have not provided him much run support, so perhaps they are due for a breakout day.

  20. Larry says:

    One out!!

  21. Larry says:

    I am surprised Wood is in the game.

  22. Larry says:

    OH MY GOD….Wood has done the unthinkable. My gut is churning

  23. mikeychx says:

    harden tomorrow then marquis

  24. mikeychx says:

    this is like watching the 2007 version of dempster

  25. mikeychx says:

    ok…now i need to see two in a row

  26. Larry says:

    See my comment at 7:44; too late for that now.

  27. Larry says:

    They held on. I am going to go pass out!! See you tomorrow (if it’s at night)

  28. mikeychx says:

    allright larry, i gotta write a post for 100 year itch and two for sparty and friends…i gotta get crackin…ill talk to you tomorrow
