Yeah I am not sure when he is coming back either. 

 

Hes slated to pitch another game for Iowa tonight I believe, could be back next week.

 

I am visiting family in San Antonio, who have baseball team, the San Antonio Missions, who are a triple A affiliate of the Brewers. Coincidentally, the Iowa Cubs played against them last Tues-Thursday. I was going to try to make the Thursday game but didn’t get back in town on time. Would have been neat to see the Cubs up and comers, but maybe next time.

Cubs are up 2-0 again tonight in the 4th. Astros up 6-0 over the Cards in the 3rd. We will see if these scores hold up. If so the Cubs and Cards will once again be tied for 1st place in the NL Central at 56-48 with 58 games left.

I agree brother. I’m going to have to start tuning out the games while on vacation, putting me in a pretty bad mood lately. Barf. Maybe someday we’ll also get some batters going?!?

We can't close games out on the road for some reason. If we had a 3 run lead heading to the 8th, I would not trust our bullpen. This is a pretty bad loss, they all are at this point of the season. I was in a good mood until this crap happened.

I hear you brother, it is the way we are losing that bothers me. We have had the lead 8 times heading to the 8th inning this season on the road where we have blown games. Just go 4-4 in those games and we are sitting pretty. All in all we are just 1 game behind the Cards and tied with the Brewers so still a ways to go. I do not trust our bullpen at all right now though.

So far Houston up 1-0 over the Cards in the 2nd. Cubs start a huge 3 game series at St Louis on Tuesday, hopefully both teams enter that with the same record so nobody has the advantage.

Kyle just hit another HR, this one a 3 run shot! 7-0 Cubs the sleeping giant is waking up now. Kyle going to work today. He is one strong dude haha. Astros now up 2-0 over the Cards in the 3rd. These games are fun to follow when the race is tight going into the last 2 months/last 55 games or so.

Caratini just hit a 3 run HR, Cubs now lead 10-3 in the 7th. Cards are down 5-0. We are about to be tied for 1st place heading into St Louis. If our bullpen blows a 10-3 lead, I will go to Eagle Creek put on a speedo and do a nestea plunge in disbelief lmao .

Yeah it is pretty cool that both teams have the same record up to this point. This series will take us into August. I am hoping the Cubs can win at least 1 of these games since it is in St Louis so at worse they will only be 1 game behind after Thursday.

Lots of doom and gloom on the Colts forums, my word!  Never good to hear your starting quarterback is nursing an injury but you have to let things play out, like @PrincetonTigersays....”everything will be OK.”

 

Getting pumped for tonight’s Cubs/Cards game, hoping for a good one and not a blowout in either direction(ok that’s a lie, I’d be fine if the Cubs blew them out,  but I doubt that will happen.) Darvish is pitching, hopefully the good Yu and not the bad Yu. Robel Garcia leading off with Heyward batting second, I like it!

 

Looks like the Cubs  made some moves. Strop to the 10 day IL with neck tightness (not happy if he’s hurt but won’t miss him)and they signed RHP Phelps from the Blue Jays. Don’t know Much about him other than he has an injury history. Are there any more trades left before the deadline???

Yeah some of the posts about Luck on here were really mind boggling. Like calling him soft, a liar, and stupid. That is really uncalled for. He has given us 4 seasons so far where he has been very good to great. You would think after last season, people would learn to have patience and let things play out. Some just do not appreciate Luck and never will but we win a SB they will be the 1st in line to jump around and celebrate. 

 

Regarding the game tonight, so far 0-0 through 2 innings. I would love for the Cubs to win game 1. That would put all the pressure on the Cards being at home to win the last 2.

Phelps is a ND grad and was a starter with the Yankees

Yeah these games are usually 1 run games between these 2 teams as you know. Kyle had bases loaded in the 6th but did not come through. Cubs are in trouble now. Both teams pitching has been solid. Yu has only given up 2 runs, I will take that anyday.

    • Go with Brissett against the Saints.  There is still a shot at the playoffs.   Assuming we lose that game, start Kelly the last 2 games.  There is no downside.   It gives the fans what they want.  It gives the coaches and Ballard a look at what Kelly is.  Worst case is that we lose both games and gain draft position.   It's not tanking.    If Kelly doesn't get some playing time, I think we go into next season with Jacoby as the starter and Hoyer as the back up again.  They signed Hoyer to a 3 year $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed.  
    • One of two things will happen with Luck. He'll either return next year (I can see Irsay making a plea to him based on our QB position and so we don't have to draft a QB) or he'll stay permanently retired. This is a perfect chance for him to return where INDY and the fanbase will welcome him back with open arms. It's next year or never for Luck.
    • Another wide or TE! Why? JB would not throw the ball to them unless it was to late! JB is to timid. He's scared to fail. Therefore, we have to have another QB. If we don't, i believe it will be major mistake. Oh, for all of you JB hine kissers, if you don't like threads like this don't read them. I don't care what you dislike! If you can't see the weakness in JB then ....... WOW!
    • Last time he was seen was at the Colts facility during the bye week. He was JACKED! Looked bigger, like a baby Hulk.
    • Chad Kelly needs to play the final 3 games. Houston and Tenn are both 8-5 and will face Sunday, so we are eliminated anyway. Play Kelly and see what you have in him. If we're lucky, he'll look great and we won't have to draft a QB early in the draft next year. Nothing to gain from starting Brissett and Hoyer. Brissett is regressing and Hoyer is who he is. See what you have in Kelly.
