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

I have never seen you take a loss like this. Enthusiasm is always nice sad homer simpson GIFupset homer simpson GIF

 

I've taken Vikings losses like that.

 

I was wondering why this loss bothers me so much. I have a feeling that it is because I am following the game threads. Those threads have hundreds of posts, many with negative messages. That negativity permeates our psyche. It shows the power of words.

 

I've only started following the game threads this year. This is one of the only games that I watched from beginning to end but I did miss the Baez HR. So I saw all the moves, rather than reading about them.

I have followed the game threads since 2009, no wonder why I feel old haha . If you knew how many people have ripped the Cubs since 2015-now you would be shocked. Many people think Maddon should be fired and we suck lmao , Bryant is overrated, Jake was a flash in the pan, etc.. :funny:. This has been going on for 5 seasons. These are Cubs fans saying it haha  but yet we won a WS in 2016 and have more wins than any team since the 2015 Season.

My Cubs all-decade team 2010-2019 for 1 game would be:

 

CF Dexter Fowler

3B Kris Bryant (MVP)

LF Ben Zobrist

1B Anthony Rizzo

2B El Mago

C Wilson Contreras

SS Addison Russell

RF Jason Heyward

P Jake Arrieta

*If the DH is in play then Kyle Schwarber would bat 9th, no pitcher.

 

Pitching would be:

Jake Arrieta for 5 innings (righty)

Jon Lester for 3 innings (lefty)

Aroldis Chapman for the 9th (lefty)

You don't think that having had McNeil and Conforto in the lineup would have given the Mets a better chance to score more runs?

 Of course it would have but nothings guaranteed. The Cubs have had Rizzo, Bryant, Baez, and Schwarber the whole series, all great hitters, but have come up short for the most part the last 3 games.

Here's a legit question, are people that are not Cubs fans sick of the Cubs?

 

I mean they win all the time over the last 5 years in dramatic ways. They have won a Championship but they aren't the Warriors who have won 3 Championships. They are not LeBron James who makes the news if he uses the bathroom lol. They are not the Pats who have 6 SB's. Just a legit question I was wondering about.

But you don't agree with what the negative posters have to say. So, you can ignore them. On the Vikings game threads many times I don't agree with comments and I ignore them. The difference yesterday is that I agreed with the fans. What made me upset yesterday were 1) the lineup, 2) leaving Lugo in after being gassed, 3) not bringing in Diaz, 4) making a double switch on the 8th that made no sense -- our best hitter in McNiel never got to bat, 5) not pinch-hitting for Cano or Gomez (we needed players to get on base for McNeil). We may not have won but he could have given us a better chance to win. 

 

Notice that the word "Cubs" never came up in what I wrote. It would not have mattered who our opponent was. It just happened to be the Cubs. The manager did not put the team in position to win.

 

Ever get upset with "playing not to lose" and playing prevent defense. Would it matter if the Colts were playing the Pats, Texans or Arizona Cards? You may not like it regardless of the opponent.

I have never seen you so upset after a loss but El Mago does that to teams.

You weren't upset after the loss? What do I have wrong homer confused GIF

 

You wrote that El Mago has a way of getting people upset. That is what you have wrong. He did not upset me. The Mets manager did.

What? You have it all wrong.

I don’t think his question was implying anything about yesterday’s game against the Mets, I think it was a general question.

 

I read a lot of negative crap about the Cubs, and for the most part I ignore it too. I don’t know if the hate is due to them winning so much recently, a lot of people accuse Cubs fans of being fake bandwagon fans and only recently starting to follow them and not being fans of them when they flat out sucked. I’m not really sure why it matters to anyone when someone started being a fan, to each their own. If the Cubs start to suck again, we’ll know who the true fans are. Some people don’t like the Cubs culture, the Wrigleyville atmosphere, the W flag, etc. etc.

I've never had a problem with the Cubs or their fans. I actually don't have a problem with fans of any baseball team. Now, it is different in football. 

 

Anyway, the Mets are losing 10-6 to the Phils who were swept by the Marlins. Lol.

Mets being pounded now. They have a reliever in there called Pounders. The Mets were losing 7-6. Pounders gives up 5 runs in relief. Lol. It is 12-6 now.

 

This bullpen is just so bad.

I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!!

    • My thoughts exactly watching thay game last night.   Brutal     2-4 division leaders, he could be just what they need.
    • Bro I've been here for almost 10 years. I'm no troll. All I'm saying is stats are not the biggest indicator for the HOF especially for a first ballot HOF. I never said he's not a HOF. I said it might take him awhile to get in. 
    • I'm thinking the Cowboys could/should have interest in him right now.?  
    • Yes he even said it in 2018. He didn’t like him as well. 
    • No, in your first post you say stats aren't important without post-season success.  Then you use a very poor example by comparing Rivers to Kenny Anderson.  Your logic in this post was very flawed.   Then you suggest I don't realize today's NFL is more passer-friendly than it was when Kenny Anderson played, which you were wrong about.   Then you come back with another post suggesting that stats do matter and use a list with 75% of the guys you named not having a superbowl ring (only Marv has 1).  Then you lie about your statistics, so not only were you trying to reverse your stance on flawed logic, you were lying with your claims (by the way Carter isn't in the top 10 in receiving yards).     Ray Lewis wasn't (i.e., was NOT) found guilty on double murder.  He is also pretty much unarguably the best middle linebacker of his generation and arguably of all time (and had multiple super bowl rings).  Ray Lewis was always considered a team leader and an exceptional team mate.  There was a video of Randy Moss hitting a crossing guard with his car.  Randy Moss was known for taking plays off if he felt like it.  Owens had character issues on and off the field his entire career (including spitting in an opponents face on the field and overdosing on pain killers off the field).  Owens truly displayed his character by being the only member of the NFL HOF to skip his induction ceremony and instead held a private party.  Marvin punched a young fan at the pro bowl and was in the news related to multiple shootings outside his carwash very near the time he was up for eligibilty.   I'm really not nitpicking anything at all.  I'm saying you have flawed logic to start the argument and you are lying (maybe not intentionally, maybe you're desperate and don't realize you're making stuff up) and reversing on your logic from your initial argument.  And you're obviously not reading my posts fully and are seemingly attempting to be a troll.
