About Last Night: I Have My Doubts

Written by , Posted in General

The great thing about this blog is that it has readers who disagree on a number of topics. Today, the topic is panic over the season record and play of the last week. To some, it’s time to panic. To others, it’s not quite time yet. To even others, it’s never time to panic because it’s the Cubs and they’re fun to watch. The great thing is that we’re all right. If you feel it’s time to panic, then panic. If not, then wait patiently. It changes nothing whatsoever, so if it makes you feel better, do it. With the […]

Tristeza

Written by , Posted in General

Aside from being the name of a post-rock band, tristeza means “sadness” in Portuguese.   And that’s how I feel right now, sort of a melancholy funk – each season is like a roller coaster with it’s ups and downs. Usually our ups exceed our downs. But watching the Cubs right now is sorta like watching a plane that has lost part of it’s tail section, it’s nothing but a downward spiral. We can only hope that things turn around – right now the club looks like a vanquished team, one that is conditioned to lose. Without going into a […]

When will it ever end?

Written by , Posted in General

Today’s loss marked the seventh consecutive loss; during the last six games the Cubs have scored a total of five runs. This is nothing less than anemic and it’s time that changes should be made. Ironically Derrek Lee (who has hit safely in 12 of his 27 at bats) was forced to sit today due to flu symptoms, his lack of production is one of the main reasons the Cubs are a .500 team but he is our hottest hitter. I’m starting to wonder why we have so many role players that don’t produce. Every team is going to have […]

Good news and bad news

The bad news is he will be taking Rich Harden’s spot on the roster – Rich appears headed to the disabled list with lower back trouble that he allegedly got while running the bases. What’s gonna be next? It was reported on many sources that Lou […]

GirlieView (05/22/2009)

Written by , Posted in General

.!. Going to try a new abbreviated format for GirlieView for this week, for three reasons: 1. I have been too long-winded in previous episodes. 2. I’m on my way to Pennsylvania for a wedding (not mine). 3. Not a lot of uplifting thoughts are coming to mind about the Cubs this week! I’m not in a panic, I don’t think the whole team should be benched or the whole coaching staff fired. But a well placed statement here or there (via benching, firing, or some sort of acquisition other than Jake Peavy) wouldn’t hurt. Recap: Date Opponent The Amityville […]
