Chicago Cubs fans, please read!!

People at the Cubs Message Board are trying to get a petition together, so if you could take a minute to sign it and possibly post a link to any other high traffic messageboards.

If we get enough sigs, we will send it via email and hardcopy to anyone involved in Cubs management.

I know you might think this is stupid, but its worth a try.

I'm not signing anything with typos. First time his name is listed- Latory? But I agree with it. Too bad there is nothing really good on the market. Maybe we can get Bruce Sutter out of retirement.

F*** the F.C.C.

Hahaha, the guy had 25 saves last season; cut him some slack.

Just be glad you're not like the Giants who are stuck with a guy who hurts himself stepping off the mound (Armando Benitez). Dude, even Rivera has 2 blown saves in 5 opportunities... cut Hawkins some slack.

HAHA that's funny.

I am a Phillies fan and saw the highlights of Hawkins throwing the ball off the Phillies players head, and into the crowd. Bad luck for him really on that play.

^^^^^
This also stems from the end of the season last year when he was a part of the Cubs collapse.

exactly. I dont think you people are watching basbeall to closely if your telling us to cut him some slack.

Last season when we were in line to make wildcard, Hawkins comes in and blows like 9 games. Some of them were like 3 or 4 run games in the 9th.

Then this season he comes back and starts the same shit all over again. He is NOT a closer, everyone seems to know this except for Dusty baker. Put him in the 8th, let someone else close. He cant handle the pressure.

Holey donut, in all honesty, i WISH Hawkins would get hurt. Whether it be getting hit by a pitch, falling down a flight of stairs, having a crazy cubs fan pull a Nancy Kerrigan on his ass.

Who would you rather have be closer?

Bartosh? - maybe but he's too inexperienced

Remlinger? He's too old (almost 40)

Maybe they can just convert Maddux to be a closer

ANYONE. Try ANYONE other than Hawkins. Baker is too stubborn. Give the other guys a chance.

The other guys have amazingly high WHIPs and lack a good fastball.... yeah, Hawkins shouldn't be a closer - but there really isn't anyone else to pitch there.

Having a slider isn't going to get you any saves; Hawkins is doing the best he can playing a bad role; but the rest of the Cubs' bullpen isn't going to do better.

Borowski should be back in a couple of months... hopefully he's got his velocity back.

Well if I was a Cubs fan I would be more than happy to do this but seeing that Im not it would be pointless. GO DBACKS!!!




BTW, Yankees have the most talent in the world and they still can win a damn game. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
