Tuesday Barebones Game Thread: Pirates @ Cubs 8:05 EDT/7:05 CDT

Why can't this happen all the time?

So, folks this is a do it yourself gamethread.  Nuthin' fancy here.  It's just the Cubs against the Pirates.  Unfortunately, it's no longer International Talk Like a Pirate Day,  but feel free to tell pirate jokes, since it annoys gravedigger so much.

It's Dempster against Kevin Hart today, so this could be fun!

(Julie pipes up, just in from soccer practice): As this is probably the night we are eliminated, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it will NOT be fun, but maybe that's just me. Also, having just turned on the game, I can see that Mike Fontenot is starting, and that is definitely not fun. Oh, and we're playing the Pirates, so there's that.

On the other hand, we're already up 3-0 in the bottom of the 1st, so that's kinda fun. As long as it stays that way.

Hey, anybody here like. . . . lineups? Well have I got a treat for you!

Theriot

Fukudome

Lee

Hufflepuff

Baker

Fontenot

Soto

Fuld

Dempster.

Uh. . . ick.  Oh well, it IS the Pirates, after all.

Game is on WGN.

Gah--thanks, Sec. Totally my fault. I was late for everything today. Me= boo.

Bah--it's not like I did anything really special. I started this about 2 minutes before game time.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Yeah sorry, I really dropped the ball on this tonight.

secdelahc said:

It's okay. I would've gotten to it sooner, but I've been studying all night. I've got a quiz, a test and a final all due tomorrow. I'm a busy beaver tonight....

Keving Gregg shut down for the season, Cubs fans around the nation rejoice. "He Can't Hurt Us Anymore," says Cubbiejulie.

Send him to Abu Dhabi.

Why isn't anyone here to comment? I mean, you'd think this game didn't matter or something.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Uh.. . I just posted like the BEST COMMENT EVER. check out the link.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I should've stalked him when he was in Indianapolis. If only I'd known.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

seriously.

Greg Morelli said:

Seriously.

JulieDiCaro said:

Oh, hell there. Did you bring dinner?

Greg Morelli said:

user-pic

Hang on, there's a call on hold.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Oh, hell there. Did you bring dinner?

Greg Morelli said:

user-pic

Hello? You sound familiar.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

LMAO!!

Wow--I'm extremely comment-challenged tonight.

Greg Morelli said:

user-pic

It's okay, I'm on the small bus: extremely challenged!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

the small bus always smelled like tinkle.

Greg Morelli said:

user-pic

Couldn't hold it anymore, sorry.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

LOL. Ew.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I'm having a lot of issues with comments posting. Anyone else?

Maim said:

user-pic

All kinds of problems. The fancypants internet we're paying $50 a month for isn't working AGAIN. I'm back to stealing from the neighbor.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I'm getting just a hanging "posting" and then the comment doesn't post when I refresh.

Hmmmmm.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Do you guys think being too tired to go downtown tomorrow is a valid reason to cancel a meeting with a client?

Mike Wuertz has over 100 strike outs this year. Wow should we have ever hung on to that guy. Instead we get Gregg. Worst Christmas Ever!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

No. No more Wuerzt. I hate that guy. Also, I'm annoyed that my clever nickname for him never caught on.

Maim said:

user-pic

My idiot supervisor used to always say, "Oh no! It's gone from bad to Wuertz!" every. single. time. he went into the game when we were listening at work.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

but see, i'm more clever. i switched the letters around so it makes sense!

i'm going to go back to looking at my pciture of Garrett Jones for a while.

Maim said:

user-pic

It's true, you ARE more clever. And I'm not just saying that because EVERYone is more clever than he is.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I kind of feel him, though. max won't even be in the same room with me when So Taguchi is playing. And yet, I still crack myself up.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

COL down 2-1 in the Top 5th.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Oh Garrett Jones, thanks for salvaging these last few games for me.

Maim said:

user-pic

I think those paintings they gave them at their ceremonies were so friggin' ugly.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I agree.

Also, I don't watch "Vampire Diaries," but I think the bad vampire is way hotter than the "good" vampire.

Maim said:

user-pic

He is. And also, he's Boone!

Maim said:

user-pic

The "good" one has been on several different Law & Orders. He does make a slightly hotter vampire than he does a bipolar baseball player who beat up a girl or a kid that murdered his father but has blocked out the memory.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

eh. he's a little too. . . stiff.

HA!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

OMG--you're right! I didn't see that!

Maim said:

user-pic

Good game, Demps!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Indeed.

Unfortunately, I think colorado is about to clinch.

Dammit.

Maim said:

user-pic

You knew it would happen sooner or later. Best to just rip the band-aid off now.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I'm convinced that Marquis can still bring that team down.

MillsChC said:

user-pic

Hooray Jason Kendall!

MillsChC said:

user-pic

Boo Chris Ianetta... well fuck.

secdelahc said:

user-pic

And it's official..... we've been eliminated from the playoffs. Boo.
