First off....what a terrifying moment tonight, I can’t begin to imagine what Almora felt after that as he’s a parent of two toddlers...so awful!!!! Glad she’s going to be ok it seems, here’s another link. Heartbreaking. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/1281122001

 

Although I’m happy for the win, I would take a loss if it meant that didn’t happen to the poor little tike.....but I’ll still dust this thing off.....

Thanks for the article. It got very silent at that stadium. I'm surprised they kept Almora in. He seemed so shook up.

 

The article does not necessarily say that the kid is ok. It says she was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. Hope she is fine.

 

Anyway, the players on this Cubs team are very likeable.

Cubs have the day off tomorrow, so they can enjoy this win. They play their last game of May at St Louis on the 31st. Open up a 3 game set with them. Should be fun.

These Dodgers hitters are so tough. Mets and Dodgers tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 3rd. Men on first and third and 2 outs for Dodgers.

Dodgers are very good every year but still haven't won a WS with this group. Every year it seems like it may be their year but then they fold in the WS or the NLCS.

They played better teams. No one was beating the Red Sox last year. The year before was Houston's year. Maybe this year the Dodgers will win. 

 

Btw, Minnesota Twins are looking good. Best record in baseball as of this morning.

Dodgers should've beat Houston IMO, they had Game 7 at home. I do agree though, they have lost to great teams the last 3 years. Cubs beat them in 2016 (NLCS), Houston in 2017, Sox last year. Some teams just have bad luck and never get over the hump. Look at the Indians for example the last 3 years too.

They lost to the WS champs every year. haha

 

Mets lead 5-3 now, after the 2nd 2-run HR in this game by our rookie Pete Alonso.

True but they were better than Houston in 2017 all year until Game 7 of the WS. Cubs and Sox were definitely better, those teams had special seasons winning a ton of games. 2017 should've been the Dodgers year.

Houston was and is a great team but the Dodgers were favored in that series. It's up in the air this season. I can't believe how well the Twins are doing right now. Indians are in trouble.

@NFLfan, sorry but the Mets lost 9-8. Can't believe they blew a 4 run lead.

 

Thanks, buddy.

 

The prized closer we traded for blew the save. It is infuriating. :flaming:  We give up very good prospects for this pitcher who is supposed to be lights out. To make the trade happen, we take on Robinson Cano's crazy contract (Brock Osweiler-esque). Seattle's top prospect is a guy we gave up in that trade. I'm very disappointed but not surprised. That is what you get when you trade good prospects for older players. :scorebad:

 

We waste an ok start by Noah. Now we have our worst pitcher going against one of the best hitting teams. :facepalm:

 

I'm annoyed. :rantoff:

You guys gave one away. Sorry that happened. Cubs have done that a couple of times this year too. Should never blow an 8-5 lead in the 9th so I see your frustration.

Nothing confirmed yet other then she was conscious and alert and taken to hospital for precautionary measures. I will be surprised if she is unscathed, I can only imagine the amount of swelling a hit like that would cause, and sometimes it’s very difficult to diagnose head injuries/concussions on children that age. I’m sure they’re keeping things on the down low for now due to the sue happy lawyers that will inevitably be pounding on their doors!

True! When I was 16 or 17, I was a passenger in a car accident involving 6 vehicles on a highway. These lawyers kept  calling my parents encouraging them to sue. I refused to cooperate. One got me on the telephone and tried to persuade me. I don't believe he was allowed to do that (I was a minor). I told him that the driver of the car that I was in was my friend and I did not want to sue him or anyone else. They really go after money.

 

I hope the kid is fine. She was crying so much.

I was fine, thankfully. I had trouble walking for a couple of weeks and the barrette in my hair broke. I assumed I must have hit my head a bit, but there was no bump or bruise. There was no reason to sue anyone. Too many people sue for no good reason.

Yeah I just seen the call in the 10th inning that should've been a strike call for the 2nd out. That did influence the game a lot at the end. We need to score more than 1 run though. Cards take the 1st of 3. We are still in 1st place as the Brewers lost. St Louis is always a tough place to play. We have had a rough schedule lately.

If we do not get some offense going it will be a Cards sweep. Down 1-0 in the bottom of the 7th. Cubs only have 6 more outs to work with. Hamels has pitched great but still may lose.

Wow is all I can say on that one and laugh. When it isn't in the CARDS for you it is for the Cards lmao . Kolten freakin Wong, coffee lol GIF . Usually teams get breaks but I have never seen a team get breaks like the Cards have this series. The non call strike the other night and now that OZZIE Wong play. Not our series. I can't wait for the Cubs to get back home.

Why did we even take the plane ride to St Louis. We looked like a bunch of chumps this series. Then in the Brewers/Pirates game yesterday you have Yelich hit a fly ball and three dudes stand around and look at the ball and let a sure out drop foul lmao . Next pitch Yelich 3 run HR blast haha .

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
