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.

    • I think it might come down to who has the final better record, the Colts or Ravens.  Reason being is that Patrick Queen is his chief competition.  Since the positions don't directly compare, and the Raven's D by media default is more respected than ours historically, I would be concerned if they finish with a better record and/or playoff seeding, especially since we already lost to them at home.  But I hope you're right.  He's been fantastic and perhaps may get votes for All Pro.  
    • You missed the purpose and argument of Dan's post, and that is that he thinks we should bring Rivers back.  The strawman part only occurs concerning that point.  Our actual record and Rivers part in it isn't up for argument.  It "is" rather than being an argument. It is simply a statistic, a fact and not open for debate.     The "strawman" argument is that we will need Rivers again NEXT YEAR.  The "strawman" portion concerns assuming our only alternative options would be the same as this years options were, in the future.  If Ballard decides there is a better option for next year, then you'd have to argue THAT specific (and completely unknown) option versus Rivers.  To do otherwise is a "strawman" argument.      
    • Your logic is wrong on so many levels. That is not a straw man argument at all as far as I can tell.   You are actually making a straw man argument by taking what Dan said and exaggerating it.    He said we could be 5-5 without PR, not that we would be.     Another distortion of logic in your post is that Ballard would have to feel that his option was better.  That is wrong.  It's a non-sequitur. What if Brady stayed in NE and Rivers signed in TB?  If Ballard thought PR was the best, then he would have to sign someone he thought was worse.     Teams do not always get to sign who they think is  better option.  In FA, the FA decides who is his best option, not the other way around.
    • Now if you are talking about beating KC in the playoffs, I don't think this team or any other is legitimately good enough.   But are you freaking kidding?  The last few weeks have proven that we are good enough to compete Supe.  Winning is not guaranteed, but surely it's pretty obvious that we are competitive with the best teams.   I didn't know if we were or not and was skeptical before Baltimore, but we've competed pretty well against them and since them.  
    • They have been all been great contributor's, and yes I hope Eason turns out to be the man
