Ok, did any expert predict that the Cubs would be in 4th place at this point in the season?

Tonight, the highest paid set-up man in baseball gave up the winning homerun.

Any chance that the band of geezers will be playing this (http://www.ilovewavs.com/Holidays/July4/TAPS.wav) outside The Shrine tomorrow?

I think Les picked them to either be in 3rd or 4th...and the Sox in 1st. But other than him, um....no.

If we could get Chad Hutchinson to throw a spiral like that alleged curveball Wood threw to Chipper, the Bears would be headed to the playoffs. :redneck

Loved how the Trib's sport section front page had an article today asserting that Larry McPhail is pleased with the team's "progress." Haw!!!

Les did pick Cubs 4th and Sox 1st. This might be wrong since the Reds are just 2 1/2 games behind the losers and the Pirates just 7. Why mention the Pirates? Well - THEY have 5 games left against the Cubs; if the Cubs think they can catch the Astros because of a bunch of games with them, why can't the Pirates think the same thing and overtake the Cubs?

How about because it means that the Cubs are closer to finishing in LAST place than the Sox are to finishing in second?

A win the Braves desperately needed after Tim Hudson's mistake pitch to Derrek Lee in the seventh that tied the game at two following their come from behind win over the Padres Sunday night. Hudson had everything working throughout the game, baffling the Flubs batters, and getting a couple of key double plays to get him out of a couple of tight jams. Also, Chipper was huge tonight with the two two run homers that the Braves also desperately needed.

My fellow Sox fans in Chicagoland, do those of us who are also Braves fans a HUGE favor. Tough it out at the Urinal for the remaining two games and cheer the Braves on to a clean sweep of the season series with the Northside Losers. John Thomson, who had a rough outing his last time out against the Dodgers, allowing seven runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings of work in his second outing since returning from the disabled list, takes the mound for the Braves Tuesday night. All of you can also check out N-L Rookie of the Year candidate Jeff Francoeur this week as well.

BTW, a Wimpy sighting is definite on Wednesday afternoon as FSN-South will televise the game here in the Southeast.

That would be great. And it very well can happen.

No thanks. I seem to rememebr there being a couple of White Sox games the next two days. If I have any spare time I will make sure to at least catch part of a Sox game, not a Cub game.

No, you wouldn't be watching a Flubs game, you, instead, would be watching a BRAVES ROAD GAME. Seriously, watching the Sox crush the Twinkies at the Baggiedome would be a bit more important for those of you in Chicagoland. I understand, BUT YOU WOULD MISS POSSIBLY BUMPING INTO WIMPY IF YOU DON'T TOUGH IT OUT AT THE URINAL ON WEDNESDAY!!!!

Woo-Hooo! He also hit a 2-run dinger off Zambrano in the 4th. And I've got Chipper on my fantasy team. :thumbsup:

Another side note from that game: Zambrano retired the side three up, three down in seven of the eight innings he pitched. AND THE CUBS STILL LOST!!!!! If that doesn't prove the incompetence of the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc., I don't know what does.

I'd love for the Sox to meet Atlanta in the World Series - It will be cheaper buying a plane ticket and face value tickets at Turner Field than trying to get a pair from a scalper.

I'm not playing in any fantasy leagues this season, but last year, I introduced a "No Flubs, No Twins" policy for my team. It worked out well because I never had to cheer for any individuals playing on my two most hated teams.

I did a similar thing this year, even though it's my first. I have a "No AL East players" policy, just to show everyone in the league that that division is overrated. Granted, I really like Toronto as a team, but I absolutely despise the red flubs and spankmees, so it feels good to be in 2nd place in the league (1st for every week until now), be a "rookie", and show up the AL East. I had one flub (Wood) and one twinkie (Rincon) that I drafted; guess I cursed them or something :smile:.

I picked them 4th behind St. Louis, Houston, and Milwaukee. At first it looked like Houston was going to go away early, but I think if any lesson has been learned it is that the best pitching in the division can't be held down. The Flubs have the 4th best pitching staff and honestly I thought that by now the BrewCrew would be at least 5 games or so ahead of the Flubs.

EDIT: Everyone that works with me thought I was crazy because they had the Flubs winning the division. They didn't get it whenk I laughed at them for having no bullpen and not filling in for the departed Matt Clement. In fact, the one good move I thought they had made was dropping Shammy and picking up Hairston, but they dropped the ball with that big time. I predicted that Hairston was going to become the fulltime 2B and leadoff man and that the Flub fans were going to appreciate him as much as any other player, but man they screwed up there.

I believe that was around the 6th or 7th inning of Game 6, as I followed the "Woods" kid up Clark Street toward Waveland. I biked over to the park to take photos beginning around the 5th inning, and captured the full gamut of emotions that night, that's for sure. I didn't even have to stick around for the 9th inning, either -- the fork done got stuck in the 8th.

During one of the "Hot Stove" baseball talk shows on ESPN 1000 Bruce Levine said Kerry Wood would win more games than Freddy Garcia. I'm almost 100% it was unregistered who said "Freddy Garica would win more games than Kerry Wood would start."

On March 28th on another board I predicted the Sox would win the division and the Cubs would come in 5th in theirs. So I'm rooting for Cincy to overtake them and let me at least get that one right.

Actually, should the Yanks pull a 5 out of 6 against Boston come the end of the season, I could get all 6 divisions right for the winners :D:

To toot my own horn:

I told my flub fan teamates that the Cubs would finish in fourth place this season. There outfield offense was attrocious from the start and their rotation was bound to get hurt. They all laughed and guaranteed playoffs. I feel pretty vindicated now. Only thing is, I thought it would be StL, Hou, Cin, Cubs..:gulp: ...oh well...can't be a hundred percent right.

I don't care what hes done this year... I'll never forget his home-run in Game 7 of the NLCS and his 20-strikeout game...plus hes throws SO FAST!!

Mark Prior got so many bad-bounces yesterday...stupid physics.
