Well, it’s not like Mat Latos isn’t good.

The Cubs’ bats came up with bupkis today, and lost another one-run game. They had a good chance in the 8th when a couple quick base runners bounced Latos from the game, but a sac bunt, a Soriano strikeout, and a great play up the middle ended the threat. And then it was Aroldis Chapman time. (Incidentally, wouldn’t it be nice to have a guy like that in the 9th?)

Jeff Samardzija pitched well enough to win today, though he did give up quite a few hits. He worked out of several jams by way of the strikeout, and all in all pitched fairly well.

    I’ve been saying that!!!

    In MLB the show if someone isn’t holding there
    Weight I bench or trade…period!!!!

  • JulioZuleta

    Some of the comments on here…just…inexplicable.

    • TWC
      • JulioZuleta

        I just try to tell myself that most of these people are seven years old. It’s the only thought that semi-restores my faith in humanity.

  • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

    Julio don’t talk down I know my baseball
    ESP my cubs!

  • Morken

    Note to anyone who’s not blindly obedient to the Theo/Jed regime: Most of the people on this site are intolerant to your opposing view.

    They are smug in their ignorance.

    • Dale’s Ear

      Yes run while you still can before the mean people on the internet hurt you with their scary arguments.

    • MichiganGoat

      I am dead serious about TFM posting his business plan on here. Yes most of us thinks it ridiculous to think that by playing a game created the perfect plan, BUT if TFM believes it to be flawless he should be able to justify it among a group of critics.

      I really want to see this plan, I’m tired of posters giving absolute solutions with no realistic plan. Now we have a poster that has a plan that is being ignored by the FO, share it with everyone and probe to us it is perfect and we will all agree and crowd source it to the FO.

      Seriously TFM post this plan. Be the hero.

      • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

        It’s 22 pages and you Michigan goat
        And I are on the same page!

        We want what’s best for the cubs!!!

        • MichiganGoat

          Okay send it to me and we can discuss the greatness of your plan.

          • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

            Would love to what’s your address

            I’ll let you know just like I told the cubs
            I copyrighted this! I sent it to myself in the mail
            It’s a poor mans copyright but its binding and if
            Anyone tried to steal my ideas for another
            Baseball franchise I’d sue for damages!

            • Jp3

              Did you send this letter to yourself into the future to stop the cubs from making a huge mistake like in Back To the Future?

              • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                Huh?

                No idea

                I sent 3 single page leaflets and one DVD
                Wasn’t sure they were getting them so I
                Sent a business model and DVD in a bubble
                Envelope certified and some female signed 4 it
                So I know they got it!

            • MichiganGoat

              I’m not going to steal your ideas and I’m not giving you an address on here. I gave you ways to contact me. So ill just wait for you to contact me.

              • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                Ok but have to send it to in way that confirms u got
                Maybe yousendit ? In case later on u claim u didn’t
                Get it but benefitted from it

                • Tommy

                  Alright Monty, I’m starting to think you’re yanking our chains here. You’re too good to be true, man.

                  • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                    Huh? Clarify to good to be true

                    • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                      Clarify to good to be true

                      And Michigan goat here’s a lil appetizer

                      Section 17:1

                      Wrigley and extra revenue
                      To sign free agents

                    • MichiganGoat

                      MIND BLOWN – use extra money to sign players. Come on man this is just getting silly – send me an email, start a real dialogue or stop this charade.

                • MichiganGoat

                  Fine reach out to me to start a conversation, instead of refusing to get this plan out there. Send Brett an email then but quit saying you have a plan on here without finding away for it to get to the FO. After seeing the link you have attached to your name and your reflecting all my attempts to open a dialogue I’m smelling the product of belly fire. Hell at least share something from your opus. Quit stalling.

                  • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                    Just did

                    And what’s wrong with my website
                    And what’s belly fire!!!

                  • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

                    I keep pressing your name
                    How do I send u a private message

                    • MichiganGoat

                      Okay michigangoat at gmail dot com – quit avoiding a meaningful conversation

                    • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty
    • Tommy

      Morken – is this your way of being tolerant of opposing views and NOT being smug in your own opinion, then?

      Do you not see the irony in your post?

      • Morken

        You obviously fail to grasp the meaning of irony.

    • TWC

      Note to anyone who disagrees with the Theo/Jed regime: most of the people on this site are entirely tolerant of your opinion, provided you’re not a self-satisfied, whiny-victim dickhead about it.

      • MichiganGoat

        +1 – TRUTH. I’m dead serious I want to see this and any other plan that can fix the Cubs. If it is the great solution I will praise the writer.

      • DarthHater

        Kyle, for example, while always immensely self-satisfied and frequently a dickhead, is rarely a whiny-victim about it and, accordingly, is largely treated with grudging respect by the countless fearsome legions of Theo fan-boys who inhabit this blog.

        • JulioZuleta

          Well said. While I usually disagree with Kyle, I can tell he’s a smart guy and at least backs up what he says with a respectable argument. No problems there. It’s the people that question every move in hindsight that drives me crazy.

        • Kyle

          I love you too, man. I love you too.

          • MichiganGoat

            Love right back – GROUP HUG.

            • Kyle

              I love Darth. I guess I can love you, too.

              • DarthHater

        • Kyle

          Although, honestly, after the interview today, I’m really starting to lean toward the “It’s mostly Ricketts’ fault” explanation. Somebody’s statements don’t add up, and I find Epstein more credible of the two.

        • TWC

          I don’t think that Kyle is *ever* whiny-victim around here; often cocksure of himself, but there’s really nothing wrong with that.

        • Morken

          The monotony endured while reading countess Theo/Jed cuckolds overreacting to anyone remotely questing ‘the plan’ is painful. The torture is compounded by the lack of reasoning behind every post; along with the absolutely dreadful sense of humor circulating. DarthHater – amongst many others – maintains the pedigree of a “Drake and Josh” lead writer. A dumpster located behind a planned parenthood facitlity is funnier than you cunts. It’s absolutely painful to attempt to reason with you cultish motherfuckers.

          • Tommy

            Yeah, but no monotony involved with you constantly stating it in your posts, at all.

          • DarthHater

            Careful, everybody. The Duke of Dumbria will be trying to pick a streetfight pretty soon.

            • Tommy

              He’s going to beat us down intellectually again, and it’s been a while since he’s told us how smart he is. I’m waiting with bated breath.

            • Morken

              ‘The Duke of Dumbria’

              Holy shit! Your attempts at humor are excruciating. Reading your posts must be what rape feels like.

  • Larry Bittner

    What’s so bad about the girl in the bad idea t-shirt. Is she wearing a t shirt.

    • Jp3

      It’s an awesome shirt…

    • jt

      The ideas on the bad ideas t’s were bad enough that I had trouble seeing the girl…. which is always a bad idea.

  • http://Www.aorrockstop.com The Full Monty

    I know a Larry bittner

  • Tommy

    I LOVE YOU BLEACHER NATION MESSAGE BOARD! Who needs cable!

    • DarthHater

      Get a life, Tommy. :-D

  • MichiganGoat

    Okay TFM you have shown through your comments that you can’t write a clear sentence or spell the majority of your words. I’ve reached out to you to open a dialogue by sending me a message and you’ve gone out of your way to ignore, deflect, and insult whenever possible. You’ve shown your true colors- good night.

  • Katie

    Oh dear. It seems I’ve missed the fun.

    • MichiganGoat

      Oh darling it was a fun night.

      • Katie

        It would appear so. And I’d call you an adorable term of endearment but this is not a dating site!
