Any homer that gets Thom doing his best Sulkin Hawk Harrelson impersonation is a good one:
https://twitter.com/RonanOShea/status/855611279330902016?s=09

He's such a miserable bastard. I watched the Reds' feed for the bottom of the 8th and top of the 9th. He spent almost all of it being negative, nitpicky, snarky, sarcastic, and bitter. He was bitching about the Cubs questioning the home plate umpire on some of those strikes being called. He especially went after Schwarber and his color man added, "hashtag stop whining." They were oh-so-smug about winning. tHom also sounds like he thinks he's recording dialogue for a baseball video game. He'll say the same thing twice in a row but try it a different way, which usually means louder and even more condescendingly. Glad the Cubs broke his heart because their broadcast is a brutal listen. 

I know there is plenty of previous history that might be playing a role in Thom's behavior during Cubs games, however I personally think the 2003 NLCS still ticks him off. He was five outs away from being the voice that would be heard for all eternity as the guy on the call when the Cubs finally won a pennant... And it was taken away from him.

2003 took a lot away from all of us.
It sucked but most of us got over it.
1984 was even worse.

BC don't be an apologist for that self serving douche.

Truly shameful bullshit toleration by Bullshit Condoner BC.

But then he became the first person who ever tried to suck off Tim Tebow from the broadcast booth, and they can never take that away.

Anthony Rizzo put the Reds in the garbage where they belong.

I'd like to go back to being wrong about Kyle not being a quality start machine, please.

Bump. Not sure but he might like hitting at Wrigley.

Noted murder enthusiast and occasional football player Aaron Hernandez hung himself in his cell. (His lawyer and agent suspect foul play.)

Starling Marte just got an 80-game suspension for PEDs.

Not a great stretch.

ANY TEAM THAT HAS RYAN BRAUN IS MY ENEMY.

Which will be the Dodgers, soon enough.

How long until DFA-ing Stop is an option?  He's becoming a massive liability.  Also, whoever had the idea to throw Cutch 4 straight sliders when the guy can't hit a 95 mph fastball anymore needs to spend some more time with the opposing scouting reports.

It's more than four fucking innings, you dope.

Yeah, that's just stupid. I hate watching them piss away a lead but CFiHP is gonna CFiHP no matter what.

Shit it's not even like his velocity is down. He looks like Strop, he's just in one of those funks where he has no command. I'd be worried if he hadn't done this for various stretches for his entire career.

Sign a guy to an extension.
Overreact to the first 12 games.
DFA said guy.
Profit

That's Cub.

It happened to me: I laughed at a Forkjoke.

That game sucked.

This game also sucks.

Yeah, dude--they're going to lose like, at least 60 games.

Try to fucking pace yourself, eh, mate?

Those two posts were about (1) losing after they loaded the bases twice in the last two innings and didn't get a single run and (2) losing after blowing a big lead to some slapstick windblown hitting and maybe two well hit balls. So if we're not allowed to express some tiny amount of frustration with bad losses anymore I guess I'll just start checking box scores instead of watching the games. Don't worry, I'll tell you when it's the playoffs.

"Clear the deck cannonball coming" in the most nasally voice this side of DUI Dan McLaughlin. If nothing else this game has revived my hatred of the Pirates.
