I think that this is the third time a team has scored ten runs in an inning against the Cubs and this is the second time there have been two outs before a run came across. I wonder if that's a record.

I happened to go to a Cubs-Reds game this year where the Cubs had a ten run inning and the Cub fan sitting next to me said to one of his friends "You know, this might be the kind of loss the Cubs need to turn this season around." They were ten under at that point. I turned to my dad and said "I wonder what it's like to live that far out of touch with reality. It's like being in North Korea."

Since the Rox are an above .500 team and their skid wasn't too long, I don't think it's really a stretch to think it won't. Plus Tulo just came back and they needed these few games to get back to normalcy. I think they may just go grab that WC spot again! :wink:

Dempster Explains --- after a fashion....

After Ryan Dempster (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/topic/sports/ryan-dempster-PESPT001767.topic)'s four-inning outing, the Rockies poured it on in a 12-run, 13-hit eighth inning against Sean Marshall (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/topic/sports/baseball/sean-marshall-PESPT003736.topic), Andrew Cashner and Brian Schlitter. Colorado set a major league record with 11 straight hits, including six straight off Cashner, who served up two home runs.

"It's embarrassing, but it's a fluke thing," Dempster said. "You can't do that very often. That's why it never has been done before "

I don't remember much about when he started managing the team, but I still remember how he would goo all over the Cubs while doing color commentary for Fox. You could tell he was begging for the job on air. The best was one game where he sat there all game long talking about how Cubs fans were the best fans in the world. That was the same game that got delayed in the 8th (or maybe 9th?) because those wonderful fans kept throwing garbage on the field after their team blew a lead.

Sorry I missed it, maybe Comcast will do an encore. I have an idea that there's an unwritten rule about the boost a team in any sport gets from the manager/coach doing something dramatic, like announcing his retirement as Lou did, or blowing up at an ump and getting suspended, as Lou did a few years ago. It lasts about 5 games, then the underachieving mopes revert to past form. How many games did it last in this case? The delusional fans were actually talking about "not too late to turn it around" on the basis of a couple of wins.

Cubbie Swagger. Gotta love it.

I don't remember him saying anything overwhelmingly kind about the Cubs, I remember in '06 he did the Cubs-Sox series and was talking about how the Sox success was built around pitching, defense and speed and then said something like "I'm a little surprised the Cubs have never built a team like that. It seems like they always build around their park and that's not the way to go."

If you mean his blowup in 2007, it came when they were at rock bottom in last place. They then proceeded to float to the surface in a very bad NL Central and hold off the Brewers for the division crown.

Gotta admit, though, if I remember right wasn't his blowup the next day after the Zambrano/Michael Barrett altercation? Nice way to draw attention away from the real buffoons on the team, Lou.

I agree about Byrd. During the infamous inning vs. Colorado, a ball went past Sorryano in left, and he just jogged after it. Byrd wound up beating him to the ball and fielding it. I think it was 15-2 at the time but nice hustle 12.

I wonder how ol' Ron Santo took it? I'd imagine there were lots of "Oh no!!" calls flying around.

I don't care enough to actually tune it, though. LOL

Probably more like "Aw, gee" repeated over and over. Just heard a juicy tidbit about one of Ronnie's recent business ventures. I won't post it but I hate him better than ever now. Most Cubbie baseball I've watched in a dog's age. It's fun, too.

I don't think they were intentional at all. The Cubs are just bad....

Iowa Cubs getting destroyed at the Urinal right now, and the Cubs just beaned Carlos Gomez of the Brewers in the head after a bases-clearing triple.

This should be a fun series to watch.

:popcorn:

More comedy gold tonight out at the Shrine. :roflmao: I had this game on so I could glance up at it occasionally when I was sitting out on my balcony earlier. Tonight wasn't quite as funny as Friday night's debacle, but 18 runs on 26 hits for the Brewers was entertaining in its own way. :tongue:

Brewers have sixteen runs, this is the second time in three days the Cubs have trailed by fifteen.

Cubs pitching gave up 18 runs on 26 hits.

Wow. I bet Lou's in no hurry to get back to this trainwreck.

LOL. With the Astros comeback win vs. St. Louis, the Cubs are now in fifth, behind the "putrid" Astros they all thought they were so much better than last week.

The Cubs scoreboard didn't even have a placard for 26 hits, they had to use someone's number for the hits.

Hart, Braun, and Fielder were a combined 14-for-21. They must have wondered why Macha scheduled the Cubs pitchers to throw BP.

I don't know if anyone else can verify this, but I have never, ever seen Comcast rerun a WGN game.

Our 8/1 game from WGN is on Comcast On Demand right now. (8/2)

That would be Billy Williams and I am ashamed to remember that. (though along with Jenkins, Kessinger and Banks he is among the only four Cubs I ever liked in 50 years of Cub loathing)

I will say this, as bad as they have been Marlon Byrd is fun to watch. Regardless of the score he hustles every play and it's fun to watch.

He's definately the only one who is hustling. The rest of the team has been sleepwalking all year.

I'm guessing his decision had nothing to do with baseball. Good for him.

I kind of know what you're going through, my parents have not had a great deal of satisfaction on the baseball end with the Cubs either. None of my family has, it's really rough.

Being a Sox fan continues to pay off :cool:

During the six-game losing streak, the Cubs have been outscored 62-17. That's really unbelievable.

Really?!

I know they used to never do this. Thanks for letting me know. :thumbsup:

I have always just assumed I couldn't see a replay of a WGN game that I didn't watch or record - which I know was correct at least last year. Maybe WGN struck a recent deal to put their content on On Demand.

Thank goodness for the Cubs they play in the only division with 6 teams.....and that 6th team is Pittsburgh! Fun fact: the Cubs had the 3rd highest payroll in MLB to start this season.:happyguy:I looks like the era of trying to buy a championship by throwing money at Lilly, Soriano, and Fukidome is ending with a huge thud.

Seriously, this yet one more reason why this year is a golden opportunity for the Sox to make the playoffs - and go deep in the playoffs. The Chicago market has long been dominated by the Cubs. 2005 made great strides in starting to turn the tide. If the Sox want to keep turning the tide, they've got to seize this moment to capture Chicago's attention while the other guys are stinking up their joint (or should i say "shrine").

Now I'm not saying that the Sox players should have an eye on the Cubs or anything like that. Nor am i saying I care more about the Cubs losing than our AL rivals losing. I'm just saying that it's a great opportunity for this franchise to make more inroads in this town. I know the Sox have a history of squandering golden opportunities like this, but maybe they can cash in this time.

Lots of pretty green seats behind home plate.

Unpossible! Cubs fans are the worlds greatest fans and there are never empty seats at Wrigley!

I think it's a sign of how much the fans have given up that they don't even bother throwing garbage on the field anymore.

If you mean his blowup in 2007, it came when they were at rock bottom in last place. Gotta admit, though, if I remember right wasn't his blowup the next day after the Zambrano/Michael Barrett altercation?

It was staged, and he admitted it was. That's what incensed me about it. He commented he was gonna get thrown out. And people loved him for it. Talk about contrived.

I think managers probably do that more than we know.

Coob will need a 1B next year, short-team deal as the franchise/Ricketts family continues to shed payroll. My Cubs fans friends think they'll make a play for Paulie, can't see him taking a short term 1 year deal though.

I agree.

I'm hoping they pick up someone younger. They have some good young guys (Colvin/Castro/Cashner) coming up and should try to get a core group that will stay together for years.

Is that a record? Or how about in the 4-game span between Friday and Monday? That has to be a record.

Has anything like this ever happened to the White Sox?
