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

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.  

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.

    • Assuming we come out of the 1st 7 games at 5-2 which is a likely outcome, we won't really find out what this team is made of until we play the Ravens and Titans.  
    • The only element that "might" struggle is our running game, but I don't think that will happen either. Our pass O, pass D, and rush D should all dominate. My fear is we come out with a very conservative game plan, playing soft zone, and trying to not pass. 
    • I'm optimistic too, but "potential" can be a trap. I like the measurables of the guys we have, but most are wildcards. And let's be honest, the "potential" we've had has been a bit stunted in terms of growth due to QB woes 2 of our last 4 years. But yes, we do have a lot of speedy athletic, although raw and small school guys at WR. TE is however another story. If we remove Burton from the conversation (he's not a traditional TE, and is more slot than anything), Doyle is the only proven, and MAC is the only one I see with legit potential. At RB, Taylor is the only legit true RB aside from Mack. Wilkins is good depth, but he's not bell cow between the Ts guy. He's a zone rushing back most effective on the edge. Great depth, and will look great later in games behind our OL, but not a #1. Hines is a great APB and is legit. 
    • The Colts not only need to win, but they need to come out and make a statement on Sunday. They need to destroy the Jets on both sides of the ball and win this game by a landslide.
    • Ballard completely rebuild 98% of the roster in three years. I don't count 2017 because he didn't have his own coaching staff and had to deal with Pagano. Even with Andrew Luck retiring, Ballard never stopped building the Colts into the highly talented roster they currently have today. I don't think Ballard gets enough credit just like I don't think Andrew Luck got enough when he was carrying the Colts pitiful roster for multiple years on his back.
