Lol ill raise your Cubs and hand me the Cards . Cards have a very important factor besides a very dangerous line up. The third best bull pen in the MLB . Anything can happen , and if they bench Carpenter for the hot hand , it bolsters their offense greatly. They wont wait long to do it. My guess if he doesn't pick it during current series.

Until they can get Wacha out of the starting rotation for good, the Cardinals will struggle.   

I think it may be a dogfight till the end, but I think the Cubs will win it.

Like I posted earlier. I think it is 50/50 at this point on who wins the division. IMO the Cards have the slightly better pitching, the Cubs bullpen is really bad at times. That is why I think the Cards will win the division if I had to decide. Lineup vs lineup is pretty even. Both teams on any given day can explode for 6 or 7 runs. The 2 teams play 7 times in the last week and a half of the season. 4 are at Wrigley which helps but the last 3 games of the season are at St Louis where the Cubs struggle on the road.

I still lean toward the Cards winning the division because their pitching is slightly better and their lineup is just as good. Both lineup's are dangerous. Cubs at worse should get in as a Wildcard.

I sure hope they both make it , don't want them canceling each other out . As far as starters will put Flaherty and Hudson against anyone in the league right now Hudson pitched 6 and 2/3 of no no last night against a left handed stacked lineup of the Brewers . Those two have been very impressive over last few weeks.

I think they both make it brother. The Nats may be the other Wildcard surprisingly.

Cards are up 5-2 now, Cubs are up 4-3 in the 7th. Believe it or not I am glad the Cards are beating the Brewers haha . That helps put them farther down in the standings. That helps the Cubs for Wildcard purposes if so be.

I would rather win the division but making the playoffs no matter how, is the most important thing. Brewers losing helps. If Cards win and we win, we are still only a half game out.

Cubs win 5-3 over the Giants, fly the flag the Hozer. There is no place like home. Now 67-58 on the season. Kimbrel looked great in closing the game.

Yes Kimbrel looked good, Rizzo seems to be getting his swagger back, and Castellanos is a machine, pay the man!!!!

Reds seem to give other teams a lot of trouble. 

 

Speaking of juiced ball, Pete Alonso has hit 39 HRs and this rookie player for the Reds is the fastest to 11 HR. @hippiejohn must be ecatatic.

Yes, Aquino has been fun. We were at the three home run game. He hot homers in innings 2,3,and 4. Next at bat, with a huge Reds lead, the Cubs pitcher offers 4 crappy curve balls way outside. I was hoping for my second 4 homer game. I have noticed he is getting tons of curves and sliders low and away. We will see if he adjusts.

even though the Reds will finish third at best, this has been fun watching this pitching staff. This is one fine rotation.

Cards lost 5-3 in a rain out called after the top of the 8th. Cubs back in 1st place after tonight. NL Central standings heading into August 22nd are:

 

Cubs 68-58

Cards 67-58 (.5 back)

Brewers 65-62 (3.5 back)

 

Here's a question to Cards fans, @Jay Kirk , @Barry Sears, and @Myles, what do you guys think about important games being called after the bottom of the 5th of games? This was called in the bottom of the 8th. In the playoffs it is different, if a game is called because of weather, the 2 teams resume the next day where it left off. Having said that the regular season is different, thoughts?

this wasn't addressed to me, but Milwaukee goes to St Louis again second weekend in September. I would have thought they could finish this game then. I think maybe Rob Manfred just wanted a shorter game. Who knows.

Tough call because I would want consistency.   It'd have to be the same for a team in the playoff hunt as it is for a team not in the playoff hunt.  It'd have to be the same early in the season as well as the last month or so.   I like the idea of completing the game at a later date if the teams play again.  Maybe a formula should be used based on the amount of runs one team is leading by.

There's different ways to look at it, but to me, if the two teams will play again before the end of the season, then suspend the game and complete it later.  Even though ALL 162 game count, when it gets to mid-August and later, then the games tend to take on more importance for the teams in contention for a playoff spot.

 

But, as was mentioned, whatever is done needs to be done consistently.  This time the Cardinals are the team that appears to get shortchanged.  We don't know if they would have ended up winning, or if the final result would have been the same.  I haven't had a chance to read any articles on this with opinions offered due to work schedule, but I would think most would have wanted the game suspended and completed later.

Pitchers duel so far into the bottom of the third, 0-0.  Hendricks vs former Cub Jeff Samardzija. Always liked the guy, wish he could have stuck, especially with how good he’s been lately. He was a heck of a receiver for Notre Dame too.

Yeah in the playoffs, they resume where the game left off the next day which is the fair thing to do. They had to do this for the playoffs. If a team is up 10-0 for example in the 3rd inning and the rains will not stop, it will not be a do over a game. Teams would resume in the 3rd inning the next day. If a team is down 5-4 in the 8th inning, game would be resumed in the 8th inning the next day. But in the regular season it is the opposite in both cases.

Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific". 

 

He lost. :scoregood: The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady. 

 

Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?”

This isn't looking good, Cubs down 6-2 in the 6th. The Nationals are better without Harper lmao . They are going to be one of the wildcards IMO and the Phillies may not even make the playoffs :funny:. Right now the Cubs would be the other wildcard based on the standings.

    • It'll be really interesting to see how consistent our run game will be week to week after teams begin to focus on it more. The Raiders particularly did a really good job with their gameplan against us.  
    • No one is disputing this, what we're concerned about is the nature of his play given the amount of experience in the NFL compared to a true raw rookie.    What exactly was the trouble you referred to in your previous post?
    • Playing time is how you gain experience. I do think that it should all come together quicker for him if he improves because he has sat and learned.   Also I realize we added speed. My point I guess is that those two guys are rookies and not 2nd and 3rd year players. If they were I would probably be more hard on JB. Especially if they had a proven season with Luck.  This offense has some of work to do so we can get those 250 yard games passing on a consistent bases. Like Reich said his perfect game is 400 yards. 250 yards passing and 150 yards rushing. I think it will be fun to see with having the bye week if we see some new things on offense. Something else I hope is that JB and Cain took some time in their week off to work together. Ballard also said Parris is learning to play outside and it didn’t help he missed all of TC.   i have never down graded hooker.
    • Hard to stack the box when you have to double T.Y. one of our TEs will be by themselves or send the back out
    • I'm talking about rating.  Now whether you think the ratings are legitimate is another question.  But in the rankings whether it be PFF, QBR, or PR, etc.  He is bottom half.  Maybe top of the bottom half, but bottom half.  In other words he is a replacable player by most of these analytics.   Now we can criticize these analytics and there is a lot of wiggle room and context, but some of his supporters, namely you Chloe are a little over the top.  I don't hate the guy, I just don't think he's very good. Now what I like to do on here is armchair analyze what I think I see and debate back and forth about it.  It's fun to me.  I really like this kind of diversion and think it requires some higher level thinking which is good for the brain.  I don't care if someone disagrees with me.  For instance, you downgrade Hooker, I think that kid is a freaking stud.
