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.
from the Sunday Trib...
Motte has been on the 15-day disabled list since Aug. 24 because of a right shoulder strain, but there’s a possibility he could rejoin the Cubs if they advance deep in the playoffs.
Motte is scheduled to pitch in simulated games and in Instructional League games in Arizona.
8 in a row to end the year...let's do this playoffs thing.
3.02 era, 1.25 whip, 205.1ip, 171K
By making the start (his 32nd start of the season) he picked up $500K, and he'll get the remaining $500K if he can throw at least 8.2 IP in the game (he was at 181.1 IP coming into the game, and he needs to reach 190 IP to get the remaining $500K),
It's a bit like the old "Bowling for Dollars" TV show, but of course Haren is actually "Pitching for Dollars."
holy crap, MIL is just...awful.
i think he's currently playing for the Santo Domingo Meths. he's an Adderall-Star player there.
I'm longing for a Neifi sighting.
TBS, TNT, ESPN 1+2, etc...100% legal.
68 pitches (50 strikes)
love seeing that...especially with the batters doing very little with it.
Yeah, keep him off the playoff roster.
Or, he's looked exactly like Ted Williams.
Lately he hasn't looked like Ted Williams...
Bryant leads NL rookies in HRs (26), RBIs (99), 2B (31) and runs (86). Last rookie to reach 26 HR, 99 RBI, 31 2bs, 86 runs and 74 BBs?
