Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

I just got an anonymous call on my phone which I usually don't answer when I don't see a number I recognize. I answered it and the person said SOX and hung up.  I have no clue who it was

lmao Poor Dusty. Reds do have promise IMO, I like their lineup, just need better Pitching.

We have some rising talent like Schebler, but it will be another couple of years before this team can even think of contending. And I'm okay with that in a way, as it makes the stress lower. I have very low expectations so I can just enjoy the game at the ballpark haha...

The whole Division has talent, Pirates and Brewers are even dangerous. Cards always scare me the most when it comes to the Cubs but anything can happen in Baseball. Regarding this season, the Dodgers are a machine and I just think it's their year.

Oh I agree. I went to the Dodgers - Reds games during Pete Rose weekend in June, and I was blown away by how stacked that team was.

Wow. I knew Yankees fans were not happy with Joe Girardi but I did not believe he would not return as manager. The Yankees made it much farther than anyone could have expected.  I don't get it.

 

I wonder who will get the job??? @coltsfansince65 @bababooey Who do you want to be the next manager of the Yankees?

 

As for Girardi, I would not be surprised if he was the next manager of the Nationals.

Cubs Bench Coach Martinez being looked at by both Nationals and Yankees for manger position.

I was not crazy about some of the head scratching moves Girardi has done this season but I wasn't one of those fire his butt fans either. I was mildly surprised but not shocked by the move. In the end, the front office decided not to renew him. I think Joe & Cashman didn't exactly see eye to eye on things going forward & the handwriting was on the wall regarding Joe sticking around.

 

As for who I would like to see as the new manager...........I like someone who's name I haven't heard mentioned yet. How about Tony Pena? I want someone with at least some experience managing on the major league level. Plus, he was a catcher & I like ex catchers as managers. Cashman interviewed Pena for the job back in 2008 when Girardi got the job.

Dave Martinez, Brooklyn born, shoot you might know him! I mean, Brooklyn New York is so small right? lol

haha Thank you. I know Dave Martinez from his days as a Montreal Expos outfielder. I did not know he was from NY. He never came across as someone who would be a manager. He seemed to be one of the quietest players out there. I did see him in the Cubs dugout. It would be interesting if Nationals hired him, as the Nationals replaced the Expos.

Thank you for replying. Funny you should mention Tony Pena. He is the only name I thought of, as he already has a relationship with the Yankees. I too like former catchers as managers.

 

The Mets hired a pitching coach from the Indians as manager, Mickey Calloway. I know nothing about him.

If we don't sign re-sign Jake I will be very sad. I love the guy. Man huge game tonight because it is 1-1, whoever wins Game 3 has a huge advantage. Yeah Cubs were down 3-1 even but that was the Cubs who were on a mission with the MVP in Kris Bryant and Jake+Chap. I think whoever wins tonight's game wins the series at this point.

I always watch Baseball when the WS I on. They don't  kneel and disrespect the flag for one thing and #2 it's the WS. I cat wait for this game.

I rarely if ever watch a full baseball game esp games that start after the new TV season. Remember I am a child of HS sports

He's the best Pitcher we have had the last 3 years and the only Pitcher that beat LA in the Playoffs. He won CY Young in 2015, don't get what you are saying :dunno:

Terrible ERA at points and lackluster performances at time. Not to mention if he is resigned the Cubs could be carrying dead money

Being too picky IMO, all pitchers struggle at times. Kershaw has stunk in the Postseason for the most part and look at Kluber. Cleveland fans thought he was a God and not only did we beat him in Game 7, Yankees beat him as well.
