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

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 don't I feel discouraged by the scheme. 
    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature.
