I hear Tom Treblehorn is coming back to give some motivational pep talks out by the firehouse.

That was the sound of RV owning Chuck's face off. Chuck, you no longer have a face.

Sounds like Bickell and Burish will be in the lineup tomorrow, with Fraser and Eager hitting the bench.


Love Bicks, glad he's playing. The Brouwer hate is strong from Coach Q. Would love to know where it's coming from - though he has been rather sloppy defensively and non-existent offensively. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with his dad.

The offense part probably has more to do with playing on the 3rd and 4th lines since he came back.

Issues with clearing the puck perhaps.

This is either crazy stupid or crazy brilliant.  I'll give Lou credit for one thing--not giving a shit about egos or defined roles, but just caring about winning....and not about getting fired.

I think that this should free up Lou to use Marmol earlier in a game in "need a K" situations--like 2nd and 3rd, 1 out, in the 6th in a 1 or 2-run game or something.  You can always leave Z for the 9th.  Or you can bring in Z to get the big outs earlier in the game.

If Carlos pitches 3-4 innings every 5 days, and Gorzellany pitches 6 innings every 5 days, the loss of innings won't be 100 innings.  Maybe 40.  But if you get better innings with a lead than the 40 you'd lose from Carlos, it might be worth it.  Or break even.  Or something.

I'm going to roll with this because it at least makes this team more interesting than it was when I woke up this morning.

Doing something different for the sake of doing something/doing something stupid/doing something that makes zero sense = caring about winning.

Got it.

His on-base is well over .500. Geo ain't the problem.

Suck on that-a one time, Pen.

I just learned that because the Cubs are winning today, I'm an idiot for hating this move.

Who in Fuck's name do you commiserate with?

I'll fire the hatemobile up as soon as the Hawks are done assfisting me.

This is what happens when the counterintuitive, overly-emotional rantings of Asshhat Nation--Kaplan, Maude et.al-- get taken seriously by the drooling masses.

They're giving 100 innings of Zambrano to Tom Gorzellany?  Wow.  Urge to remaining.  Detached.  Easier.  What a ginormous pair of clown shoes.  I'm laughing right now. These jackasses have really outdone themselves.  And that goes for Dementia Fuckhead Lou.

They're giving 6 innings of Z against Milwaukee to Gorzellany or fatter Carlos.  Again, I'm hoping this is just a calculated move to get Carlos some action the next 10 games, but also avoid another 120-pitch start because the bullpen sucks. I think they're buying time. They're coming into a weak part of the schedule.

I'm with the part-owner of TJ O'Slaky's. This is not permanent. Although I'm hoping for a report detailing the damage that Carlos does the clubhouse when he finally lets this news sink in.

I know this isn't permanent. Because the Cubs aren't THAT fucking dumb, right? RIGHT?

Let's assume it is temporary. It's still fucking stupid. I don't care if it's for one week. You're taking a guy who's been one of the most valuable starters in baseball over the last 7 or 8 years and moving him to the goddamn bullpen. It's a dumbfuck reactionary move that would only be made by a dumbfuck reactionary organization.

Whoever said upthread that this move has turned them from indifferent to ANGER is correct.

RV's rotting corpse is right!

I can't wait to see Z overthrow his slider knowing he's only pitching a few innings at most, making his sinker not sink.
This trumps the Juan Pierre trade in stupidity.

On the bright side, his 99 mph fastballs should get hit spectacularly far. Wait, that's not good either.

The fill-in for Karl Ravech is Steve Berthiaume.  I know it was brought up 366 days ago, but I hate the guy, so I felt the need to share.

I went to school with Berthiaume's brother while he was at the U of Iowa.  Lil' Bert would always talk about how his brother had made the big-time in Bristol.  He was almost every bit as annoying as Steve.  Almost.

Steve is cut from the cloth of those modern age sportscasters who believe vocal volume is what sells.  Those who believe that their banter is more important than the highlight itself.  Fuck that school of thought, and fuck those who call that school 'alma mater'.

I don't care how long it took you to agree but I'm damn glad to hear it. Your visits are all too sporadic and I hope that changes.

So is he a set up man? That's going to work out really well. Is he going to set up for close losses?

To be fair to Yeti this guy makes a game review just as interesting as such a thing could possibly be. He's one of a kind.

Anyone reminded of the stretch in 2005, I think on the west coast, when the Cubs barely scored a run for what seemed like two weeks? I remember trying to watch those late games but just getting stoned to bejesus instead and falling asleep on the couch. Miserable.

I don't see that stretch, but there's one in 2006, May 3-11 to be exact, that they lost 8 out of 9 and scored 20 runs total (8 in one game). They also fell below .500 during it and stayed that way.

Yes, that is exactly the one I was talking about - thank you.
