Game over, Cubs win, MVP to Rizzo. 6-5 Cubs win again ladies and gentleman. Fly the flag Hozer. Still in 1st place in the NL Central by 1.5 games over the so-called fabulous Brewers, 4.5 over the awesome Cards.

An ugly win, but a win none the less! Hope Javy is ok, that ankle roll looked painful!

Yu pitched well for a while and even had the crowd behind him but couldn't hold the lead. This is looking bad, Cubs down 3-1 to the 8th. Jake is going get the win unless we come up with something in the last 2 innings.

This is what you and Hozer feared: a matchup between Yu and Jake.

This will be a nonsense loss, Cubs had a strike 3 call taken away from them in the 9th that would've ended the game. Now the Phillies hit a freakin 2 out HR in the 10th.

Cubs lose. Nonsense Umps. When you are at home and a player check swings where it is close, you should get that call. Cubs got screwed but have to move on, it's only 1 game.

Yeah in a 162 game season you are always going to have a handful of games where the UMPs are bad. I still think out of Baseball, Football, and Basketball, Baseball is the best officiated sport since out and safe calls became reviewable but last night the Cubs got jobbed. Hopefully they can put this in their rare view mirror and get a win tonight.

Another tough loss unless we rally in the 9th. Down 2-1. This series has been full of bad luck so far :wall:, then our announcers keep calling the Phillies player Fronco lmao . It is spelled Franco. I guess Fronco Harris won 4 SB's with the Steelers and Chopman, not Chapman was the man in 2016 for the Cubs. Missing El Mago has hurt a bit.

So far counting this season = last 5 seasons (2015-2019), the Cubs have won more games than all teams + won a WS in 2016 in that timeframe. I guess the haters can go suck eggs come GIF. The goal now is to win another WS to prove we can do it twice. I am enjoying this season very much as the Cubs look really focused so far after starting 2-7. Long way to go but this is reminding of 2016 a bit.

    • I don't think the waiver provision has changed, which is still a big issue. I think that makes it very unlikely that Eason goes to the PS this year; it makes little sense to spend a 4th on a guy and then expose him to waivers, unless you don't think he's working out. If Eason looks at least decent in camp, I doubt they waive him.    If I had to project right now, it would be Kelly that gets waived, with the intention of signing him back to the PS. (Followed by more unreasonable but totally predictable outcry from the three Chad Kelly stans on this board.)   Part of this goes back to the hard-coded resistance some have to carrying more than two QBs on the active roster. That's great if you have an entrenched starter who never misses games, in his prime. But over half the league typically carries 3 QBs. If you have a shaky starter, an injury-questionable starter, an old starter, or any questions at QB2, it's logical to have 3 QBs on the active roster.   In the Colts case, we have an old starter, on a new team, and our backup shouldn't be considered a potential franchise level starter. So having a developmental guy on the active roster is not only defensible, it's preferable.    Btw, I hate that first year players have to go through waivers to be put on the PS. If that rule were changed, I think some of these young players that bounce around for three years and then wind up out of the league might have a better chance at sticking somewhere.
    • I’m still a Fountain fan.  He had some bad luck with his injury, but he had a dominant camp last year...
    • Great video !!  I'm excited for this season.
    • No....  when Reich said Jacoby was ahead of Eason you said...   “who knows if that’s true or not?”      As if Reich had some reason to lie about it.   You’ve been talking in circles ever since. 
    • I never said he was lying. I said Reich is a optimist so don’t expect anything but positive stuff from him. The colts actions speak volumes of what they think of Jacobys upside.
