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  

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

Cardinals have been quiet at the trade deadline so far.  1 hour left, I think.

I'm fine with them staying put if the alternative is giving up prospects for 2 months of a player.

That is why I have the moves the Cubs have made

    Getting Derek Holland for Cash David Phelps for Tom Hatch and  Tony Kemp for Mike Montgomery(Martin Maldonado) not to mention signing Craig Kimbrel

Cubs just made a splash

   Get Nick Castellanos from Detroit for Paul Richan and Alex Lange

Thanks for the update. I have to be honest, I know nothing about any of those 3. Cards look like they are staying pat, I don't blame them. They are the best team in the division as of now in the division.

Cubs make another move before the deadline....Carl Edwards Jr. Traded to Padres for LHP Brad Wieck. It’s to bad Edwards couldn’t get it together after his injuries, maybe a change of scenery will help him out.

That is the advantage of being a stat guy

 

  a one game lead means nothing especially when the two teams made moves

   The Cards are not the Yankees or Dodgers

Struck him out! Cubs win 2-0. Kimbrel closes. Order has been restored and the Cubs and Cards are both tied for 1st in the NL Central once again at 57-50. Fly the flag Hozer.

Heading into August 1st, both the Cubs and Cards are 57-50 tied for 1st in the NL Central. If we can keep it within a game or 2 until Hamels and Zobrist gets back, who knows what may happen. We are missing 2 very important players right now. I trust Hamels as much as I do Lester or Hendricks. That is how important he is. Zobrist is a veteran leader that knows how to win. August baseball is here now folks, buckle up and get ready.

6-0 Cards. We won 1 game of the 3 so I will take it since it was there. Only 1 game out of 1st place still. Matt (Johnny Bench) Weiters hit a 3 run HR haha . He has only hit 8 HR's all year. Typical series but we did win 1 so it's all good. I guess we got stinky Jonny instead of good Jonny tonight. 

 

Hey we do have 1 hit at least against a guy that wasn't won since May :funny:

We should never lose when Jon Lester is pitching against Jack Flaherty is why I am making sarcastic posts. All in all I thought we would only 1 game of the 3. I am ok with that, I just didn't want to get swept and be 3 back. Usually if they play at Wrigley we win 2 of 3 and they do the same at St. Louis. I thought maybe we could turn the tide but NAH lmao

Cubs have been playing some very uninspiring baseball lately. Base hits, all you need, not this crap. Unreal.

This team seems content too much. We won a huge game last night so they took tonight off lmao . Cubs have been like that this since after we won the WS.

    • Oh man, that’s awful, thoughts are with him and his family.        
    • It's a good thing the NFL has everything in place.  Wonder what these nancy-boys are complaining about?   https://www.fantasypros.com/nfl/rankings/covid-19-tracker.php
    • But I think TNs O skilled players stay in the game for nearly every situation, causing our defense fits.  Henry middle, Henry left, Henry right. Tannehill rolls right, rolls left, throws short, throws deep.  Brown catches short, catches middle, catches deep.   Our defense struggles against a balance O, IMO, because most of their O players are 3 down players.   Our running game switches RBs depending upon if we want to run up the gut  (Mack, JT) or wide (Hines) or off tackle (Wilkins).  Our best short ball catcher, Hines, can't go deep.  Our best deep ball threat, TY, doesn't go short.  Neither of our TEs are middle/deep threats.  Defenses just have to defend one element of each skilled player.  Our defense has to defend all of TNS skill position players doing anything/everything.   What about KC?  Would you say that Kelce is a short ball threat or a middle seam threat, or both?  Hill, short or deep or both?  That new RB, is he a runner or a pass catcher?  Three down players.   We don't have enough defenders who are three down players because they only have enough talent to do one thing well.   Our team takes the situational packaging to the extreme, IMO.
    • @2006Coltsbestever @Jared CisnerosCisneros    Hey. Need some advice. I'm in the semi finals in my league and I'm considering benching Murray for Herbert. Murray is playing the Rams and Herbert is playing the Patriots. Murray since injuring his shoulder, is not running which is taking a lot of his fantasy appeal away and the Rams have a top 5 defense. Herbert against the Patriots worries me though because Rookies that play BBs defense struggle.  
    • yeah the 7th seed wont be much better than missing the playoffs imo.  that will just be a road date with the chiefs or steelers
