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.

Here are my favorite pitchers chicago cubs mlb GIFdwight gooden mets GIF. I would pay money to watch those 2 guys pitch. 

 

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.

    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
    • It's Rivers he will play, the dude is made of steel  . He played with a torn ACL.
