woo hoo. We are going to the Reds and Cubs game in Zinzinnati Tueaday. 10 rows behind the Reds dugout.  It is Bark in the Park night, where people can bring dogs to the game. I bet someone sets behind me with a sheepdog that will lick the back of my head all night. But th weather is supposed to be good..

That’ll be a good time, wish i could go, been wanting to go to a game in Cincinnati for a while. A lot to do within a short driving distance.

 

I wish i could take my dogs to a game, but they’re too socially awkward, lol, that would be a disaster!!! lol

Cubs have the day off today and then start a 3 game series at Cincinnati tomorrow. Almost halfway through May, the Cubs are 2 games ahead of the Brewers and 3.5 ahead of the Cards and Pirates. I will take it after starting 2-7. Since starting 2-7, Cubs are 22-7 and sitting at 24-14. It was just a matter of time that Kris Bryant (aka MVP) would get his timing back and go on a tear. Lester and Hamels both are pitching like they are 27 again as well. A lot of Baseball to be played so we need to keep it up. The Cubs beat the Brewers yesterday without Rizzo even.

Brewers lost again. Mid May is here and the Cubs are possibly on the verge of building a little cushion in the NL Central going into June. The Brewers and Cards both have 5 more losses already. Long way to go but so far so good.

 

NL Central standings as of May 14th

Cubs 24-14

Brewers 24-19 (2.5 back)

Cards 22-19 (3.5 back)

Pirates 20-18 (4 back)

Reds 18-23 (7.5 back)

Cubs win again 3-1 over the Reds to improve to 25-14. They are now 11 games above .500. 25-14 is the best record in the NL.

Welp....now we know why Zobrist took a leave of absence. You just never know what’s going on with folks.:( Really sucks to hear this, going through a divorce is never easy. Hope they keep their 3 kids best interest in mind throughout the process. I wish them all well.

Cubs let one get away tonight, lost in 10 Innings to the Reds. A rare loss as they had won 13 of 15 games coming into tonight. That is what happens when you let a team like the Reds hang around that has a dangerous lineup. Cubs are still 10 games above .500 at 25-15 and in 1st place by 1.5 over the Brewers and still 3.5 over the Cards.

40 games are in the books for the Cubs meaning 25% of the season is over already. The next 41 games and we will be 50% complete at 81 games. So far through the 1st Qtr of the season I give the Cubs an A- :thmup:. Very close to a solid A but the slow start was bothersome when they started 3-8. Having said that since starting 3-8 Cubs are 22-7 and in 1st place by 1.5 games over the Brewers in the NL Central. They now have the 2nd best record in the NL behind the Dodgers.

Disappointing series, Cubs lose 2 of 3 to the Reds. Still in 1st place in the NL Central though at 25-16. The Reds bullpen pitched lights out tonight, not much else to say. x factor puffing GIF by X Factor Global

Cubs take care of the Nats 14-6, MVP hit 3 HR's! Fly the flag Hozer. The NL Central Standings look like this as of May 18th:

Cubs 26-16

Brewers 27-20 (1.5 back)

Pirates 22-20 (4 back)

Cards 23-22 (4.5 back)

Reds 20-25 (7.5 back)

-Cubs looking solid so far this season, Brewers are hanging close, Cards after starting 20-10 are now struggling a bit. Long way to go though.

Cubs lost but so did the Brewers so no harm done. Cubs still maintain a 1.5 game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central, 3 over the Pirates, and 3.5 over the Cards. If we can have the lead in the division going into June which is a huge month I will take it. After starting the season 2-7 I wasn't sure how May would end up. Still don't.

Congratulations! Time flies. It seems that you had just told us 2 years ago that you were a senior in high school. I can't believe 4 years have already passed. All the best in your professional (and personal) life.

Being swept by the lowly Marlins and getting shut out this weekend. That's embarrassing. Mets fans are ready to ship Chili Davis out.

Cubs 4-0 through 4 innings. Professor still with a no hitter. Cubs look so awesome, after sucking for so many seasons, these last 5 seasons I feel spoiled now. 2016 Championship and 5 straight playoff appearances is coming if health holds up.

You and Hozer both said that. I think you or Hozer told me that the Mets were in big trouble when they hired Davis. Mets fans are fed up. I read that he had been fired at 2-3 jobs already.

Yeah I wanted him gone and so did Hozer. All Cubs fans disliked him. Our hitting took a dip with him at the helm.

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
