Weekend Recap: Oh, Son of a ...

. Monday, June 15, 2009



"Why are they booing me? Oh, right."

Remember last week, when we recapped the series with the Reds and said that it sort of felt like a loss? That it didn't feel that great because of the tedious, 5+ hour games? Well, it turns out that actually losing series feels worse. Our mistake. Allow us a brief Pros and Cons of our series loss to the Minnesota Super Blands.

Friday: Twins 7, Cubs 4
W - Kevin Slowey (9-2, 4.23 ERA), L - Randy Wells (0-3, 2.55), S - Joe Nathan (14, 1.85)


Sweeeeet

Milton Bradley went 2-4, raising his batting average to .224. Hey, you've got to start somewhere.

Sweet fuck, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?

Randy Wells - Some of the shine came off of the golden boy on Friday, with him giving up 4 earned runs on 7 hits over 3.2 innings. Waddell, Patton, and Heilman spent the end of the game taking turns sucking. Aaron Heilman is just Bobby Howry in a fat suit.

Oh, and Bradley's ball flip thing? The next day, I was fairly certain I'd dreamed it.





Perhaps they'll knock some offense into each other

Saturday: Twins 2, Cubs 0. W - Anthony Swarzak (2-2, 3.90), L - Rich Harden (4-3, 4.53), S - DAMN YOU, JOE NATHAN! (15, 1.78)

Portillo's

Nice to have Rich Harden back, and he gave his usual solid 6-inning performance. Just don't breathe too hard if you're at the game. You might injure him.

The Olive Garden

THE ENTIRE CUBS OFFENSE. THEY WERE SHUT OUT BY SOME DICK NAMED ANTHONY SWARZAK.



Stop giving me hope, Derrek!

Sunday: Cubs 3, Twins 2. W - Carlos Marmol (2-1, 3.26), L - Jesse Crain (2-3, 8.15)

Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven"

I hope this sent a message to Ryan Theriot - bring back the slap swing, succeed. Try to hit home runs, fail. Bring back the low-intensity singles hitter! Someone's gotta get on base, dammit.

Also, Fatty Soto went 3-4 with a couple of doubles. Run off those Hot Pockets, you magnificent bastard!

Clint Eastwood's "The Bridges of Madison County"

D.Lee is hitting, Bradley may be starting to hit. And we're such critical bastards, we always need a goat (poor choice of words). We're going to be looking at either Fuku or Sori pretty damn soon unless they pull some White Sox heroics. And I'm thiking Soriano gets shit first, as even when he's sucking hard, Fuku magically manages an almost-.400 OBP.



Again, this is one of those series that really pissed me off, because they won the last game and gave me hope. And we need some damn hope, because the hated White Sox come to Wrigley Tuesday, followed by K.Wood and Mark "Panty Target" DeRosa over the weekend. Hope, damn ye! HOPE!
