Cubs live game thread: I hate the Brewers and I want blood

I hate the Brewers and I want blood. That’s really all I have to say. I’ve hit the dreaded “wall” this season. You know, the “wall” that makes you not care about anything baseball-related, and especially Cubs-related, and I just want to cheer for the Blackhawks and Bears and someone wake me up when the Cubs are worth watching again. That wall.

ouiIkAG3And yet, here we are. I have a blog, and it happens to be about the Chicago Cubs, so I’m condemned to write about this team until their last dying gasp this season. In fact, “gasp” is probably too strong a word. More like a “wheeze” or a “gurgle.”

Anyway . . where was I? Oh right, the Brewers. If I have to continue to watch this team, there’s no one I’d rather play than the Brewers. Why? Because the Brewers are extremely beatable, because I hate them, because I want the Brewers to finish in last place, because Ryan Braun taking a suspension during this lame-duck Brewers season is total bullshit, and because I hate them. I might even hate them more than the Cardinals. I have a grudging respect for the Cardinals and what they manage to do every year. On the other hand, I have zero respect for the Brewers and wish they would fall down a well, along with Ryan Braun and his entire t-shirt line. Is it wrong to hope for a fight?

Someone asked me the other day if I realize I’ve given up on any kind of baseball analysis and am now just ranting like a crazy person. Yes, I do know that.

Tonight’s lineup:

Castro
Valbuena
Rizzo
Schierholtz
Sweeney
Lake
Castillo
Barney
Jackson

A few things to note: 1) Luis Valbuena is inexplicably hitting second. Not that it really matters, but still. 2) Can anyone confirm that Edwin Jackson is now pitching every other day?

    2): Yes, but at this point, I think Edwin Jackson on one day’s rest is still our best pitcher.

    So if I have a developer design an app based on “Beaning the PED user” staring Ryan Braun and crew. What kind of functionality would you like to have and who would pick as the supporting cast?

      I will seriously make a play to have it developed so all ideas are welcome. Lets do this.

        Everyone in the Mitchell Report, although I’d imagine you’d have one hell of a time with the licensing of player likeness. Perhaps if you were to make up your own players like Bryan Wrong, Larry Longs, Kandy Ketit, Eric Gagme, DoucheBag Rodriguez, Rammy Manirez, etc. Think garbage pail kids style parody.

          The player likeness thing is easy to get around. There are a lot of corn fed big white dudes with big bulging veins and a red face that came from St. Louis. It would be comical if some guy named Mark came out of nowhere saying it looked an awful like him.

            Don’t forget Kirk Gibson and some of the old school cheaters….

    Watching the Cubs is making me hate baseball.

  5. J says:

    I have found it much easier to be a Cubs fan by just reading what you have to write about the Cubs. I am now realizing what a selfish jerkface I’ve been by just reading of your misery and keeping a healthy distance between me and the flaming bag of dog poo known as the 2012-2013 Cubs.

      Bwahahahaha — best comment ever.

    Soooo- did Dale punch out Jackson? The ESPN Blog said something like,”Jackson and Swain exchanged words, then disappeared into the tunnel leading into the clubhouse.” You could come up with lot of scenarios with that description…
