Cards take 2 of 3 in Pittsburg , will take it and be glad. My much awaited day comes Wednesday when Alex Reyes takes the hill against the Brew Crew . We need to take at least two of these three games to real them in a bit they have been red hot.

I hope you win all 3, that team needs some losses :thmup:

I hope you are right. They just look better to me compared to last year and we don't look as good. Yeah we have beat them this year 6 out of 7 games but they have beat teams that we have no business losing too. Cubs have lost games to the freakin Reds, Marlins, and WhiteSox this year. We just dropped one to the Giants yesterday. Stuff is just frustrating and silly.

I hear you really the Cards have done the same , loose teams that are not expected to win can be dangerous.

With the BrewCrew law of averages will set in, somehow we have owned them but they are just as capable of beating the Cubs 3 straight IMO. Thankfully the Cubs have beat them for the most part so far otherwise they would be like 5 or 6 games out.

I agree they are a better team than they were but everything seems perfect right now , we will see in the long run how this plays out . I am not jumping ship or even close I still like my Cards team.

June will be huge. That will show us a lot. That is always the truth month after April and May, July-Sept = down the stretch months.

But even bad teams have to win games. Losing 1 to White Sox and Reds in series is gonna happen the only bad was Marlin first series but even then they did end up evening up with the sweep

Yep, Cubs win 7-0. The BrewCrew keep winning though as they beat the Cards 8-3.

Of course I don't expect the Cubs to win every game against those teams (nobody wins every game) but the way they have lost against those teams is what is frustrating. Walking in Runs, losing in extra Innings leaving guys on base, etc..

What’s everyones thoughts on this.....

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/anthony-rizzo-dirty-slide-or-not-chicago-cubs-pittsburgh-pirates-elias-diaz-483894451.html%3famp=y

 

Rizzo admits to trying to break up a double play, and yes he wasnt taking a direct route to base but still within reach of tagging it which is why they won the review. I know there’s new rules to protect the catcher, and it could have been a lot worse, but I know from my previous experience as a catcher that if you have a play at home there’s always a risk you might get trucked over. Rizzo is my favorite Cub so I know I’m biased but I feel like he wouldn’t purposely try to hurt anyone or skirt the rules, doesn’t seem like the type.

Ya playing catcher growing up I liked the idea of protecting yourself and making the play still I always found the challenge fun

Because of the new Rule it is interference. It did kind of look like Rizzo went a little out of his way to distract the Catcher but I don't think Rizzo had it in his mind to try to injure the guy or make it a dirty play. I cant ever remember Rizzo being a dirty player. Anyways Pirates are up 3-0 tonight. Not looking good tonight.

Had to hang on but a win is a win. If the Phillies lose tonight to the Dodgers, the Cubs would actually be in the Playoffs if the season ended tonight LOL. They would be a Wildcard. 29-22 now on the season. Getting 2 wins in Pittsburgh is sweet.

I agree with this. I could not find the video but I saw pictures. Rizzo seemed to go out of his way to slide into the catcher's leg to break up the play. But Rizzo does not seem like the type to intentionally hurt other players.

You disagree?

 

Btw, this morning I posted another video in the thread that you created about Memorial Day. Same song but different video.

Once April and May are out of the way, Baseball gets a little more serious. June is a huge month for teams that have gotten off to slow starts and teams that maybe want to separate themselves a little for a Playoff spot heading into July-September.

Phillies up 3-0 after the 2nd. Unless Jake eats a couple of huge Philly Steak and Cheese's and gets delirious this is already over LOL. The Phillies along with the Braves have really been surprising teams IMO. Jake has really brought leadership to the Phills. The Braves have just played hungry all season so far. Dodgers have been shockingly mediocre all season but June is upon us.

Lol. Nah, you did not jinx anything. That has been happening for a while now with the Mets. They routinely lose leads. They have had at least 3 walk off losses in the past week. 

 

Let's hope for better.

Well....Cubs take 2/3 from Pirates. Another bench clearing incident with no punches thrown after a hard slide at second into Baez by the Pirates pitcher Musgrove. After the dust up you see Musgrove and Diaz (catcher Rizzo slid into in first game) high fiving in dugout, but it wasn’t payback....

Dont like what you’re readiing/hearing(Darvish)? Fix it, actions speak louder then words.

Yu Darvish has simply been awful and injured so far. We are entering June now so he needs to get healthy and step his game up.

    • I'm actually dropping the jags D in favour of the patriots D. I don't like the jags D versus the new bills that have two weeks to prepare.    Right now I've for Ari for this week, Mia for 12,  KC for 13, NE for 16 and backup on all my weeks except for 15. Which I plan on getting Den or Buf for 14 & 15.
    • Gurley already got that, $45M actually. You need to do some research.
    • Luck is 9-0 vs the Titans let's make it 10
    • We've talked about it a lot this year.     Especially in August and September.    Ballard brings in all these kids and he has to see what he has.    How do the kids do in real games?   This past week,  we had Smith make a rare penalty in the 3rd quarter and suddenly we're facing 1st and 20.   The very next play works to perfection...   the J'Ville defense clears out and Hines is all by himself in the middle of the field.    Luck's pass is perfect but Hines turns his head to run with the ball before he catches it.    Dropped.     If he caught it,  he might have run a long, long way.   The next series,  a well conceived pass play finds Luck hitting Allie-Cox with a great pass.     Allie-Cox looks the ball into his hands,  but it goes through his hands, off his chest protector, bounces off and gets intercepted.     The perfect play works perfectly right up to the moment where it doesn't.   That's what kids do.     They make mistakes under pressure in big games.   This is the bad with the good.     If you're looking for Reich and Ballard to bench these guys --- you're going to wait a long time.   The kids still need to play.     The more experience they get this year,   the better they will be NEXT YEAR.   And that's what this year is about.     Making next year,  and the years after them,  as good as can be.   So, if we see more mistakes from the kids Sunday,   don't be too surprised and don't get freaked out.    It's what happens when you play the kids.   And Ballard and Reich know it.   Should be a great game Sunday!!  
    • Of course you wouldn't mind.    Problem is,  it wouldn't happen.   What has Hooker done to warrent trading a 1st or a 2nd round pick?      Not nearly enough.   Right now,  we'd be lucky to get more than a 4.   Hooker isn't going anywhere...
