Riding A High… Then CRASHING AND BURNING

“WTF CUBBIES!?”
So we go in and sweep the Nationals. No surprise there. We look like a really good team. And then we fly in to face the world series defending champs the Phillies. 
Damn… I def went in feeling a little bit better than I should have. I wasn’t think straight. Why did I think the Cubs could win the series against the Phils? Was it cause Ted Lilly was on the mound for our first game? Was it because we scored 11 runs the night before? Maybe. But I was forgetting that 1. Ted Lilly has a bum knee now and 2. WE WERE PLAYING THE NATIONALS. They dont have 88 errors for nothing… 
So the first game of the Cubs/Phillie series was terrible. To sum it up we lost 10-1 after Teddy gave up a 3 run homer and a 2 run homer. He gave up 9 runs in four innings. Our lonely run came from a Ryan Theriot ❤ RBI in the 5th. 
Sad day. 
And tomorrow we have Rich Harden on the mound and I have no confidence in him what-so-freaking-ever (even though he was great against the Nationals). Maybe Carlos can pull out a win on Wednesday (he kinda struggled against the Nats). Sigh. 
Even if we lose 2 out of 3 to the Phillies we will still have gone 5-2 on this road trip and that is a great way to start off the second half. 
Until tomorrow… or whenever I get time to log back on,
GO CUBS!!

Randy Wells Can’t Catch A Break

Randy Wells cannot catch a break. The kid goes 7 HIT LESS innings and he can’t get a win. Ridiculous. And he got his first major league hit! Congrats kid!

Chi Cubs IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Wells, R 7.0 2 2 1 0 4 1 1.69

THAT SHOULD GET YOU ONE IN THE WIN CATEGORY. So what happened?

They happened.

Lou called to the bullpen in the 8th inning. Wells gave up a SOLO home run… solo. He was only at 83 pitches. Sooooooooo you put in Carlos Marmol. Who then (with one guy already on first) walked a guy, gets a guy to line out, than hits a guy… yup bases loaded with 1 out. Then what happens? He walks ANOTHER guy to bring in a run. Than a sac fly to score another. Next thing you know, it’s 5 to 3.

All the while Randy is sitting in the dugout watching his first big league W go down the drain.

Then our wonderful closer is brought in to finish the game. Did I ever mention how much I dislike Kevin Gregg??

I’m watching the bottom of the ninth unfold nicely. The first guy flies out. The second guy should have struck out but it was a wild pitch so he’s on first. Okay, no big deal. Oh wait… this is Kevin Gregg we’re talking about. Next guy flies out. SWEET. 2 outs! WRONG. Next guy comes up and homers… yeah, homers. With one guy already on that ties the game at 5.

I dislike Kevin Gregg.

lots of guys have bad days.jpg 
 

Gregg’s bad day is everyday. Found that at http://www.cubby-blue.com. Love it.

We need a serious make over in the bullpen. Jim Hendry best be out there lookin’. Or else…


shakes fist.jpgNeedless to say we lost in the 12th inning.

I found this hilarious picture on http://www.cubby-blue.com.

Zambrano is suspended 6 games for his little burst on the field and then he misses the flight to Atlanta? Come on Zambrano. Get your act together. He’s probably going to be fined and he’ll have to apologize to the team.

And all these injuries. Really guys?! I’m starting to think your faking it. Miles, Freel, Harden, Ramirez, Bradley… come on now.

And for a minute there I was scared that I might have to see Mark DeRosa in a Cardinals uniform. PHEW, I don’t think that will be happening. Or at least I hope not. I’m still mad we traded him. It was a terrible decision. I’m going to the Sox & Cleveland game with my best friend on friday. She’s a sox fan. I just want to see DeRo.

I made the mistake of watching I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here yesterday. I thought Dog the Bounty Hunter was supposed to be on it but I guess I was wrong. And Spencer and Heidi Pratt need to be eaten by a dragon in the jungle.
