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

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.

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.

That was an absolute nonsense call, :censored2:

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.

El Mago delivers, Cubs win. Fly the flag Hozer. This makes up for last night's nonsense.

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.

    • Tomato, tom-ah-to.  Thanks for the correction tho, that is a slightly more interesting matchup imo.   I'm in central il too.  We used to get colts games all the time (or it felt that way anyway) during the Manning era.    I'll probably just buy a service, feels like the best way to get the content I desire.  I'll wait til we get a win tho.  If last Sunday's D becomes a trend watching 2 minute recaps and highlights online may be all my heart can handle.
    • Bingo.  Kinda shoots the opinion of zone coverage out the window for those who are harping on it.    Most of those who are complaining are not comprehending what they are seeing. 
    • Yes they did use Ertz last week. He had 3 catches and a TD. 
    • That play where it appears Rhodes gets beat across the formation for the TD doesn't really make sense to me. Rhodes is playing off coverage all the way on the outside and he's asked to follow the inside receive who runs up  under the linebackers across the field.  Seems to me on a play like that if the guy runs inside you would pass him off to somebody else.  I mean if you ask Rhodes to cover that guy based on where Rhodes was positioned the guy is already going to be wide open regardless because of the angle.   I hope I said that right. 
    • The only way the seat starts to get hot is if Buckner and our draft picks play like busts all year. I think if Rivers has a bad year it is a bit of a wash because he is on a 1 year deal and there weren't any clear long term options available. (Maybe other than Cam, but I don't blame them).    If Buckner doesn't start to show up like we expect then that is a huge problem. If Taylor and Pittman don't show nice growth then that is also very bad for us.   That said... I'm pretty optimistic that that was just a bad game. On paper we still look improved and we knew going in to this offseason we might still have some holes that need fixed even by season start. Particularly in the secondary.
