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!!

I Think You Got A Monobrow On Your Face

Wow, I found the most amazing videos ever and I must share with you:

The first video is just freaking hilarious. And the second is from the Not For Women Only panel at the 2009 Cubs Convention. I was actually at the panel and it’s much longer. But these are some of the really good parts. Riot and Reed were just priceless!

Now on to business.

I am sort of ashamed to say that I had no confidence in my team after the first inning. We were facing Jake Peavy who struck out 12 in his last game. So I feel like a bad fan cause we won 6 to 2!

Fukudome! Woo hoo! He went 3 for 5 on the night. That was awesome. And Fons! Also 3 for 5 with two RBIs! Don’t forget about Bobby Scales! He had his first career homer tonight! Congrats buddy!! And Ryan Theirot… wait, nvm. MILTON BRADLEY! Hitting in his last six games and bombing one tonight!

Those for guys lit up the offense and Harden was fab striking out 5 and giving up one home run (that happened to be a 2 runner).

Lee was back in the lineup but didn’t do much. He really needs to get back on the horse. We need him to start hitting esp with Rammy out.

Riot is still in my dog house. I’m one of his biggest fans but another 0for night?! Come on Ryan… if you don’t start hitting again then I’ll never hear the end of it. I believe in you!!

And unless I’m missing any… We have had guys strike out or ground out or just get out with bases loaded 3 times in the last three games. Something has to be done about that. I think Gerald Perry needs to step up his coaching game and help these guys figure out what’s wrong cause once again Soto, Lee, Theriot did nothing and Font and Miles weren’t lookin’ too hott either.

And did I ever mention that I miss Mark DeRosa? I’m a HUGE Dero fan and I was very upset when they traded him. I hope to get to a Sox/Cleveland game or even Cubs/Cleveland so I’ll get to see him.

The game tomorrow is at Wrigley at 7:05. Young and Lilly go head to head. Let’s hope for another Cubs W! (And a milwaukee, cinci, and st louis L)

And tomorrow I have to get up EXTREMELY early to pick up my uniform because I start my job at the Milwaukee County Zoo tomorrow and it’s an hour drive. Yay!

goodnight & GO CUBS!!!
