I'm sick of quoting...patience? Dude, this team has been sinking to new levels since half way through 2009. For a large market team, that is unacceptable. You have to do better. Jesus the Cubs may have the biggest and most loyal fan base out there...yet they continue to put worse products on the field. Why should any of us have patience?

 

Ok, a strip down rebuild, which should never have to happen to this franchise...fine, but at least give me/you/us something to believe in. They put a scum bag puppet in the dugout and keep trying to plug in awful players in an attempt to blind us that they are actually trying to be a respectable team. It's frustrating. How can it not be? As bad as this FO hoped they would be this year, this team has been in almost every game. And has blow almost every game it has been in. All about leadership, which I'm sorry, has been pig shit to this point. Where should my patience come in?

lol, you know stacking the lineup with RH hitters isn't working when Texas puts all LH relievers in the game, rofl.  I think it might be time to scrap the platoon idea (at least in CF and one IF spot).

That was my point earlier about Sappelt. Yet you insulted it. Now you are agreeing that the all RH again and again is stupid.

Yo, kids.  This isn't the front page.  The "I Hate Theo"/"I Support Theo" stuff isn't welcome here, nor is it wanted, nor is it warranted.  Gameday threads are for today's game.  Get it?

This is the first time all season that I've been able to just space out and watch the game.  I've only missed three of them, but I've been *doing* something for all of them.  Kickin' back and just watching is nice.  This JD cat isn't too bad at all.

TBH i'm not expecting the cubs to be a contender this year.  I am, however, closely watching the development of the young talent in our organization, and am mostly pleased.  The bullpen has definitely blown as many games to put us at .500 (or better), but the cubs hitters find a way to make things happen late in games, which I like.  Bullpens are fickle, even the best teams (on paper) can have a shitty bullpen to spoil everything (2004-2005 cubs, anybody?).  

 

The leadership has been fine.  Sveum seems to have a good grip on this club and seems to be a good mentor for these young players.  Not a single instance of off-field shenanigans has taken place during his tenure, which is a testament to how he is handling the dugout.  If you don't believe this, fine.. but point me to evidence to the contrary.

 

All of what I said is only applicable to the 2012, 2013 seasons.  The Quade season was an abomination and I don't think anybody here is going to argue otherwise.

this is literally the only thread on this forum that sees enough traffic to warrant discussion, tbh.

Bull pen didn't blow this game. When you don't get any runs whats there to protect?

See, right now.  Cubs have the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the ninth.

 

How can you not be encouraged by that?  How many times THIS SEASON have they done that?  Quite a bit, actually.

You're wrong.  Everyone else on the Message Board has (mostly) left that discussion to the front page, where it can be rehashed againandagainandagain.  There's plenty out there who are willing to keep discussing it.  I suggest you take it there.

 

Please.  Keep it out of the Gameday threads.
