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

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

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

Even when we were down 7-0 I still thought we could win even without MVP lmao . We didn't but that is how good we are right now. I have been spoiled with this team since 2015. Reds won't be easy starting tomorrow but we should win. Reds are much better this season than last.

@NFLfan, Mets won again. They have now won 4 in a row and are 24-25 and still only 4 games out of 1st place in the NL East.

 

Thanks but it's nothing to brag about. That was preceded by a sweep by the Marlins. haha

 

How is our friend @Jay Kirk doing? He is missed around here.

Me too. I am worried about him because he normally chimes in at least once a week.

 

There are times that he gets busy for a while. I'm hopeful we will see him soon.

We really missed Bryant in the infield yesterday, as well as his bat. No more breaks for MVP!!!!

 

And yes, was wondering where Jay is, hope everything’s ok.

Congratulations! Time flies. It seems that you had just told us 2 years ago that you were a senior in high school. I can't believe 4 years have already passed. All the best in your professional (and personal) life.

So finally back after having layovers and delayed flights to misconnections. Rogers Centre is interesting. When you walk in you end up on the 3rd level and we sat in 130 for one game and 123 for the other game.The stadium did not have a real baseball stadium feeling though. Idk if cuz the roof was closed or what but it did not feel the same as a normal game. I did like the stadium though. It was nice that it was inside as weather was bad all week. I did like the fact the turf was so bouncy that they would just start to bounce the balls between innings. I also like there was no dirt flying to get into my eyes. The best thing was the unlimited souvenir cups for drinks and a bargain type  stand of general baseball food. 

 

I will rank this one once I reach 20.

Tough loss. Reds have our number lately. We need a closer.

Epstein really needs to do something about this bullpen, and I don’t think Strop returning is the answer. Unreal.

 

Still lots of baseball left. The Nats are not doing anything this year. They have a good closer that the Cubs can trade for.

I hear you. Is there any pitcher you want. CBE wants Chapman back. I like Doolittle but he and Maddon had a little back and forth; so, Maddon may not want him here. He is the Nats closer. I like him a lot.

So far this season Chapman has 13 saves and has only 1 blown save, era of 1.83. We should've never let him walk or let Jake walk. We could've re-signed both but didn't. The Cubs are still a very good team but not great because of the bullpen. We have had chances to build on the NL Central lead and failed to do so, so far. Brewers, Pirates, and Cards all lost yesterday. Instead being up 1.5 over the Brewers we should be up 3.5 or 4.5 by now had it not been for the bullpen.

Although he would be expensive, Kimbrel is still out there. I just don’t see Theo spending that kind of money, and he’ll prob be gone after the draft next month to avoid the qualifying offer penalty. Might need to get crafty with some trades, although our top prospect Nico Hoerner is currently hurt so....:dunno:

 

I still don’t understand why they let Jesse Chavez walk after one season, he was a great closer, and wanted to remain with the team. 

 

Yeah definitely don't see Doolittle coming after the comments he made about Madden. Don't really know much about him.

Thank you, Chavez is who I was thinking of after yesterday's loss. I could not remember his name. Should've never let him go either.

    • Which is why teams don’t do that down three score.  Just building off your point.
    • There is nothing wrong with pulling for your time.  That’s why most of us are here.  You shouldn’t be shamed for that.     With that said, remember people who point out flaws aren’t always doing it to be doom and gloom they are just saying hey this is what I saw and I think it could be a problem.  The vast majority of those people would love to be wrong and for it not be a problem and for the Colts to win every game they play.  I know I am that way when I point out something I think is a problem.     To me it’s not about being right, although I will admit to some here it is, it’s just reacting to what I saw and if I end up wrong so be it.  If I am wrong and it turns out good for the Colts I’ll be happy to be wrong.  
    • A parlay is a sports book bet that has multiple games and you must win them all to collect.  But at much better odds than even odds for picking just 1 game.   If all the games all have even money lines a multiple parlayed pays approximately: 2 team pays 3-1 3 team pays 6-1 4 team pays 10-1 5 team pays 20-1    Money lines of course affect parlay odds. Point spreads are approx odds shown above.
    • I think the problem is people take comments out of context on both sides and take it to the extreme.  Example if you say hey I don’t think Frank called a good game someone is going to say you are calling for him to be fired.  At the same time if you say hey Rivers played a good game on Sunday someone is going to take that as you saying Rivers is the best ever QB problems solved!  I think everyone would be better served to just take things at face value and not try to read into it to make your opinion, whatever it might be, stronger.  
    • Nah..  But I'm sure somebody somewhere will give Reich or Ballard credit for being geniuses lol.
