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

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  

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

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)

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.

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.

Finally finished with my Undergrad Degree so may be around a bit more. Except the next few days as I head to Toronto in the morning, will give review of the stadium, will be there Monday Blue Jays vs Red Sox on LF line

 

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.

I told you Chili sucked a big bag of cowboy bebop eggs GIF

 

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.

I would. I paid to see Gooden pitch against the Mets on my birthday. Lol. How do you like that for a birthday outing? We lost to Gooden and the Yankees.

    • I like Herbert a lot.   I agree about Kliff. He is really mis-using Murray.  Seems he likes to make things complicated for some reason.
    • Kliff Kingsbury's play calling has not impressed me whatsoever, just like Mike McCarthy in Dallas. Right now, they were relying too much on Kyler Murray's rushing till they are now forced to use their RBs more. Murray still does not use his TEs and slot WRs enough. Herbert as a rookie is a better passer than Kyler Murray, IMO, with the way he distributes it around. 
    • Yeah, its just one analysts opinion, but he seems to have nailed what we have seen with RYS already.  The other analysts opinion on DN also identify similar things (notably poor footwork, which explains getting beat and grabbing).  And he had only one year of CB experience at the FBS level.  A transfer from FCS-now-DII Presbyterian,    https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/rock-ya-sin   And not a real strong summary, but maybe accurate:   If he can avoid being a penalty machine and keep from getting matched up against the speedier receivers in the league, Ya-Sin has a shot to be a strong no. 2 outside cornerback in a press-man scheme at the next level. His effort and intensity will impress coaches, especially given how he defends the run, but his mediocre-at-best athletic testing is definitely pause-worthy, especially given the level of competition he faced in his one season at the FBS level.  
    • The Cards baffle me. They should be playing a lot better than what they are. Lots of inconsistency, to the point they remind me of the Luck era teams. 
    • To your first point, I am not saying that Rock should have improved over his first two years.  Being drafted high and having a high grade placed upon him that is something you absolutely expect.  I am saying that based on your two year model some players are different.  I am saying that in my eyes Rock is different because of his smaller football background compared to many others.     As far as his stats this year compared to last, penalties are something to get use to while he is being targeted much higher than the others (Rhodes and Moore for easy comparison).  Again, this is something I see as "fixable" still.  I have never blamed covid as you mentioned but having a drastically different off-season can effect some but I will not say that is a massive impact with this. Now mentioning Green or Werner, that is being over dramatic in my eyes.  Green was over drafted and Werner was an all-around terrible fit, plus I think Grigson was terrible at his job while here.   Mo Allie-Cox is an UDFA that has made an NFL team and shows good promise at TE.  He doesn't need to be top 15 to show my point of growing in the NFL with limited football experience.  He has grown at blocking and becoming a pass catcher.  He will remain a TE for us next year and hopefully continues to show growth.
