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.

    • I think it's possible we resign him on a 1 year, 2 million dollar ish contract.    However, that is up to him if he wants to compete for snaps, rather than go in as the expected starter.    I think Dallas or Seattle would be a really good fit for him. 
    • Brees isn't struggling too much.   He's completed 65% of his passes for 3 TD's and has only 1 INT.   Maybe not as "Brees-like" as some years, but still better than the QB's of most teams. I think the spread is simply a home field spread.
    • Yeah, the Jags certainly stumbled a bit.  Bummer because I wanted them to win.   I don't want them in a spot to draft Lawrence or Fields.   Keep them in another division.   It's not like Minshew looked bad last night.  He did complete 30/42 passes for 275 yards.  
    • Agreed,  and I've been harping on this void for about 6 years.......prior to Ballard even getting here.  While AJ, Funchess, and even TE Ebron were talented guys brought in to contribute immediately, their short contracts suggested they were strategic place holders until something better came along.   And it never did.  Dorsett, Moncrief, Campbell (still hope but doubt it), nobody emerging from a pack of mid to late round draft choices has left that spot empty for years.  I am enthused about Pittman's ability to win that spot and MEANINGFULLY CONTRIBUTE from that spot for many years more than at any time in the last 6 years.     It would have been nice to get that second WR from a deep class last spring to sit behind TY, but it apparently didn't fall that way.
    • I honestly think Mack’s injury increases the chances he takes at least a one year prove it deal with the Colts next year.
