They initially offered Schwarber instead of Jimenez, and Hahn rightly told Theo to pound sand, they ain't getting Q unless he gets Eloy.

Default Cubbie Fan Hatred of Hawk

Cubbies fans hatred for Hawk amuses me. Ive had a dozen debates with them about their hatred of Hawk. The reason they hate Hawk? Homerism. Catch phrases. Bashed the cubbies.

Regarding the first two, ever see the statue of Harry outside Wrigley? Harry and Jack were homers. What about Hey, Hey and Holy cow? Those catch phrases were on the Wrigley foul poles.

The, I hate Hawk because all he does is bash the cubbies, I always ask, what has Hawk said about the cubbies? Hawk dislikes Wrigley but cubbies fans said this about Hawk before he expressed his dislike of Wrigley. I have yet to get an answer. I should be clear, I have been told, Im not researching this for you... and I cant give exact quotes... and my favorite, I dont watch Sox games... If you dont watch Sox games how can you emphatically claim Hawk bashes the Cubs all the time?

If they don't watch Sox games, how do they know anything about Hawk?

It's a valid question. In these conversations with cubbie fans about Hawk I've asked that question. This, "I hate Hawk because he bashes the Cubs..." line is pure BS. I've not once been given an example of Hawk bashing the cubbies. That's when these conversations then slip into ad hominem attacks.

Cubbie fans on Hawk bashing the Cubs reminds me of Bill Maher's show segment, "I Don't Know It For a Fact...I Just Know It's True."

I read somewhere Theo was offering Schwabs to all 31 MLB teams. No takers.

Cubs lose 5-1, Brewers tied with Cards 4-4. Another chance to close to 1.5 back.

Brewers back to 1.5 games. I honestly think the Brewers will have to run the table this week if they want to win the division.

Yeah, they can afford *maybe* one loss.

Apparently, Cubs losses expose their fans for the violent, racist pricks they are, as such: https://deadspin.com/sloppy-wrigley-...dspin_facebook

Hey, hey - turns out the Cubs aren't just fighting the Cardinals for the division, but in the battle for racist fans!

"Security" at Wrigley is a joke. I was at a game against the Brewers a couple of years ago and sat in the Budwieser Deck (Right Field corner Bleacher section). A fan in the regular Bleachers kept yelling non-stop vile anti-Semitic **** at Ryan Braun for five innings along with comments about what he (the fan) did with Braun's wife "last night" (hint: it was not attending Bible class). This was at the top of his lungs and not only could everyone sitting in RF hear this, so could Braun who did a great job of ignoring him (well, Braun did a couple of really nice catches and hit a dinger in what was a Brewer win) . After five innings of this non-stop crap, two "security "people came down to tell him to shut up. They left with the "fan" still in his seat and he continued his harangue until the game was over with the "security" people standing at the top of the section taking in the ballgame.

At Comiskey, I've seen jerks escorted out for one inning of yelling **** at an opposing player that is over the top offense (personal attacks beyond "you suck!").

..and they (Cub fans) tell us we lack class...

Brewers may be 0.5 games back after tonight. They lead by 3 and the Cubs trail by 4. It's getting interesting. The Cubs will make the playoffs. But, it would be awesome if they had to play in the Wild Card game.

Only half a game separating the Cubs and Brewers. Plus, the Rockies move ahead of the Cardinals for the second Wild Card. This has gotten VERY interesting.

Rockies also right on the Dodgers heels in the NL West race. Only team that has no drama in the NL are the Braves who are currently on a 6 game winning streak.
