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.

    • No more than someone being convicted and imprisoned when it's obvious the police force engaged in improper procedure.   I guess the issue here is that I can see the world outside my own head better than a lot of people.  And I know a little more about physics than the average bear, simply from boredom clicks that turned into self directed study sessions.    The idea that the balls were below PSI because the air was cold and cold air is denser and reduces air pressure, makes a lot more sense to me than some nefarious conspiracy, especially because the Colts' balls were also just barely under PSI, and we all know Andrew Luck doesn't cheat.   The way I had it explained to me is the Patriots keep their balls at the low end of the allowed PSI limit at room temperature.  Throw in a super cold January evening that was way below room temperature and the nefarious becomes the inevitable.  That's why the Colts' balls were also low, because air cold enough to shrink a Patriots ball will shrink a Colts ball too.    The reason that the Colts' balls had higher PSI is that they started higher -- Colts don't push the lower edge of the PSI limit.  Also the Colts balls were tested later, after things had a chance to warm up and normalize   If it was Manning or Luck being accused none of us would have been satisfied with the standard of "proof" on display.    there might just barely be enough actual evidence to get the equipment people themselves on something, if you completely ignore the way temperature affects air pressure, but the evidence tying any of that directly back to Brady is practically nonexistent.   They would have had a better reason to suspend either of Robert Kraft or Bill Belichick than Tom Brady.  Both of them have more authority over the equipment personnel than the starting QB does and at least you could get them on the commander clause. '   All they have on Brady is that he destroyed his phone after they said they didn't want it and before they changed their minds and decided they did
    • I was going to respond to each point but it's not really worth it so I will just say, the fact that he was suspended and fined was not proof enough for you?
    • I don't see anything that makes me expect him to be a very good T.  He should continue to improve as he plays against a wide variety of players and learns their tendencies. But the smaller, faster rushers are likely to always give him considerable problems.  You are probably right, he is a lifer with that "slow punch". Just no improving that!  After watching him do a good job handling JJWatt, and you think his lower body is insufficient. chuckle
    • I would back any player being successful in the NFL against what they did in college. Two different beasts. Leave him where he is....
    • I think there was a chance Cain catches both those balls if there was no interference.
