Friday Funnies. Everybody wants to play the Cubs right now.

I know I didn't represent ALL the teams who'd want a piece of the Cubs right now, if they could.
The ones with a chance to get in this new expanded playoff system.
But after watching the Nats just score at will off some of the lamest pitching ever, you know they'd all want to play the Cubs.

Like shooting ducks in a barrel.
Playing with a loaded deck.
Men against boys, as we've recently heard.

The Pirates get the Cubs 7 more times before the end of the season, the Reds 3...

But there's one team that doesn't want to play the Cubs.
A team anxious only to beat the Cubs to the worst record, and thus the number one pick.
Namely, the Astros.

Hope you got a laugh, they're hard to come by lately.

  • RVIMPENY: It's raining today so the Cubs will probably play intrasquad game(s) tomorrow and/or Saturday, but it's pretty much a day-to-day proposition, and a lot of times it's decided at the last minute.

    Best bet is to check in at Riverview in the morning and ask somebody what's going on that day.

  • Thanks Phil, I had the Salt River chart, but based on that, it looks like they hardly play and was not on the Surprise on 9/28...I assume they do not really want fans there anyway? Do you know if they play today, Friday or Sat? Sorry to be a pain, but I am only here until Sunday.

  • Bear fans are so impatient! They signed that great All-American QB out of Columbia--Luckman--just a little while ago, didn't they? Now it's the Eagles' turn. After all, it's been almost ten years since McNabb.

  • " . . . when he signed Edwin Jackson?"

    He makes a lot of moves, people remember the ones that pan out. Kind of like MJ's approach to shooting. When it all shakes out, you get a formidable 25-man roster.

  • Dan Vogelbach is working on his firstbase defense in Seattle. Seems to say the Cubs didn't teach him properly.

  • Oh my! Cards down 2-1 to Reds in the bottom of the 9th -- get a leadoff triple -- and don't score!

  • Gameday has stopped at the top of the 8th inning. Google tells me it ended up 8-4 Pirates but I can't get further detail. Guess I'll have to wait until the Cubs' website updates...
