Anyone named Mark for the Cubs is pretty good tonight. Too bad Grudz broke his hand.

Ha ha! A three-hitter! Bite that Eyechart Gwosdz!


Oh yes! And a 3-2 win as well? Feel any wrath yet? Any day rueing amongst the Padre faithful? Wrath, hm? Rue?

I just hope Big Choi is working on those grounders to first. I am excited to see the Scrubs making a move in August no less, but fear the curse.

Ho ho! Even an Alfonseca appearance cannot save the Padres from their penance.

Swept! Wrath! Rue!

Enjoy kicking us while we're down.

We're going to own the NL next year.

Let's be honest: Red Sox Nation's motto is 'They'll rope us in, fuck us over, and we'll like it damn it, just like our parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren liked/will like it?' This is what happens when I come to the realization that if the playoffs began today, John Burkett should be the #2 starter.

You can say anything you want today, but I can say 1984... the scoreboard never lies.

An excerpt from game 5. Rich Gossage on the mound: "It's a one-hopper to Nettles. He throws to Wiggins, and the Padres win the National League pennant. OH, DOCTOR!!" (Thanks to Jerry Coleman.)

Good lord, please don't bring that up... I remember punching a wall when Garvey hit the home run to win Game 4, and then watching the ball dribble through Leon Durhams legs in game 5.... bad memories!!!

I was at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium for game 5. It's still the best birthday present I've ever gotten.

You can thank California's new Governor Peter Ueberroth for hosing the Cubs out of home field....

Well, the way I see it, the Big Three of Failure break down like this:

Cubs: "Wait til next year. When we can all come out again and get drunk in the sunshine and pretend to watch a baseball game. GO SAMMY!"

White Sox: "Screw the Cubs. We know we will never win, we'll always be mediocre, always be the forgotten team/fans in the city, but if we can somehow screw the Cubs over, it's all right. .500 for life!"

Red Sox: "The team's cursed. The fans know it. And giving us Byung-Hung Kim as a closer down the stretch is just trying to add diversity to the list of names that haunt our dreams."
