Bwaahahaha! Oh, this one was good. For those of you who didn't see it....

He gave up two singles to Burrell and Bell start the inning. Bell's single actually hit off Hawkins and ricocheted toward 3rd where there was no play. He then struck out Howard and then walked pinch hitter Offerman. Polanco pinch hit and hit a line drive back to Hawkins. He caught the ball for the second out, then looked at 3rd, spun to 1st and threw it as hard as he could. He wound up hitting Offerman as he was going back into the base. The ball ricocheted into the 1st base seats and two runs were allowed to cross the plate. Now 3-2 Phillies. This after Billy Wagner gave up a 2-run HR to Derrek Lee in the bottom of the 8th. :roflmao:

the man makes a nice stab on a ball that could have taken his ear off, tries to make a play to end the game and gets unlucky when it plunks the runner, and those dirt-bag cub fans boo him.

Go somewhere where the "Genious" GM will get you some help in the bullpen, Letroi.

I know the cub bullpen sucks, but who in their right mind would put Hawkins in a 1-run-save situation? Let me guess . . . Steve Stone made him do it.

Oh man, that was funny, booed off the field. I was a little surprised that the Philly 1st basemen didn't bunt the 2 men over, but it didn't matter, LaTroya took care of it. It's entertaining just to watch the fans behind the screen. They rise and put their hands up arguing about a ball way outside, then everybody is all happy when he catches the comebacker, and then he throws it away, lmao.

And to show how intelligent these fans are that pack the place, when they were up 2-1, some one had a rally cap on

Cub fans boo LaTrine off the mound after he pisses the game away with an errant, dumb throw. 6 in a row Flubbies.

The only downer for me is I was hoping Prior was going to get the loss. He pitched 8 innings of 1 run ball, and I was hoping he'd suffer the tough luck loss. But Wagner gave up the lead with a 2-run homer to Derrek Lee--WHO TOOK A CURTAIN CALL--which took Prior off the hook.

Another one run loss for Dusty Baker. :bandance:

When that happened, my jaw hit the ground and i just stared in absolute amazement...

I saw it like 10 times in this thread, and its true....Not only does Latroy invent ways to blow saves, but the Cubs are (still) inventing new ways to lose....

I wasn't listening to the game while at work, but was following along on MLB.com. I saw they had lost right before I went home, so I listened to WGN (the REAL radio for the Living Dead) re-play the high lights in my car. Santo was SOOOO excited when Lee hit the homer to give the Cubs the lead (ALLL RIGHT ! YESSS ! YESSSIRRR !), but when they replayed the hilarious antics of LAtroy, he literally sounded like he was weeping. (OH NO !! NO NO NO NO !!!...) Also, when Hughes was doing the wrap up, Santo comes on to give his "player of the game" to The Messiah, and he sounded like he was going to go home and swallow a bottle of pills. Good stuff. :bandance:

I was getting ready to watch the Sox-Jays game last night on MLB-TV, and the webcast was stuck on the Comcast feed of the Cubs roundtable discussion after the game.

Or the time he called a press conference when he was named the closer just to tell the media to get off his back before they even have a chance to get on it?

Yeah, this guy doesn't have mental problems.
