The Red Sox need to get a little winning streak going, esp with schill and wells out.

Wake should be solid hopefully.

Also, good luck to the white sox, nice to see them doing so well, and with good pitching for once!

A couple of 300 game winners going at it in Houston. Hopefully Houston's anemic offense will show up and the Cubbies can get a couple for Maddux off of Clemens.

In an effort to fill these threads with expletive-laced tirades and to commemorate a benchmark in Chicago sports journalism, here is Lee Elia's (then manager of the Cubs) masterful rant, spewed out 22 years ago today:

"We got guys bustin' their (expletive) ass, and them (expletive) people boo,'' Elia said. "And that's the Cubs? That's what my players get around here? ... Everybody associated with this organization have been winners their whole (expletive) life. Everybody. And the credit is not given in that respect.

"All right (it) don't show because 5 and 14, and unfortunately that's the criteria of them dumb 15 (expletive) percent that come out to day baseball. The other 85 percent are earning a living. I tell you, it's take more than a 5 and 12 or 5 and 14 to destroy the makeup of this club. I guarantee you that. There's some (expletive) pros out there that wanna win. But you're stuck in a (expletive) stigma of the (expletive) Dodgers and the Phillies and the Cardinals and all that cheap (expletive). It's unbelievable. It really is. It's a disheartening (expletive) situation that we're in right now.

"Anybody who was associated with the Cub organization four or five years ago that came back and sees the multitude of progress that's been made will understand that if they're baseball people, that 5 and 14 doesn't negate all that work. We got 143 (expletive) games left.

"I hope we get (expletive) hotter than (expletive), just to stuff it up them 3,000 (expletive) people that show up every (expletive) day,'' Elia said, getting more worked up with every word. "Because if they're the real Chicago (expletive) fans, they can kiss my (expletive) ass right downtown. And print it!

"The (expletive) don't even work,'' Elia said. "That's why they're out at the (expletive) game. They oughta go and get a (expletive) job and find out what it's like to go out and earn a (expletive) living. Eight-five percent of the (expletive) world is working. The other 15 percent come out here. A (expletive) playground for the (expletive).''

Well no matter what happens, the O's will finish April in 1st place. That hasn't happened since 1997 I believe.

They need to take care of business vs the Rays at home. Sucks that they had some good momentum only to run into 2 days off.

Hopefully Webb can get the better of Peavy this time, even though he didn't lose last time out.

Bob Watson is such a douchebag. How in the holy hell can you give Lance Carter a 5 game suspension for a) throwing at Manny, and b) throwing a fastball at Ortiz's head following Manny's HR, but give Arroyo 6 games for hitting Chris Singleton in the ass in retaliation? Carter threw at two guys, and went for the head. Great work as usual, Bobby. What a dipshit.

LOL Astros cleanup hitter is batting .200 with 0HR and 3RBI, Cubs cleanup hitter had 2 HR and 5RBI in his last game (oh he also happens to lead the NL in BA, RBI & HR)

Harsher penalties for the Red Sox instead of the other team involved? Where have I seen this before? He is a fuckin asshole.

Angels up 2-0 on the Twins thanks to an RBI double by Figgins and a solo shot by Cabrera.

Now the Twins are at batting in the 2nd and there's only one out, and runners at the corners for Lew Ford.

Ford singles, and it's 2-1 Angels with runners at 1st and 2nd....Michael Cuddyer at the plate.

Double play
