So much fun, any day at Wrigley is a good one. First time I’ve ever been there for a grand slam, that was so awesome!!! Can’t wait to go back.

 

When my sister lived in a suburb of Chicago (Oak Park), I visited there and wanted to attend a Cubs game. All games were sold out. :(

 

I thought Chicago was a great city, very clean. I did not see any of the violence that is reported on the news. I'd like to visit again one day. I'd like to visit Indiana too one day. I'm going to Miami (FL) tomorrow (my uncle's ex-wife/my cousins' mother passed away).

First off my condolences on the loss to your family , :sorry:

 

 

You HAVE to catch a game at Wrigley, it’s like nothing else! I always talk to opposing team fans after games and they all say they loved their experiences at Wrigley and would definitely be coming back. I was surprised at how many A’s fans actually flew in from Oakland. The area has definitely changed with all the new buildings and stadium upgrades, but it still maintains its nostalgic charm and uniqueness. Love the atmosphere as well!

 

Would be great if the Vikings played in Indianapolis sometime soon, doesn’t look like they do this season. Lucas Oil Stadium and downtown Indy are also a great time, I think you would love it. Still think it would be cool to have a forum get together sometime. There’s also a baseball stadium next door to Lucas Oil, where the Indianapolis Indians play, who are a Triple A team for the Pirates. Great little stadium as well. 

 

Chicago is like any other big city, just depends where you go. The downtown and north end districts are safe for the most part and have plenty of police protection. Just have to know where you’re going and what you’re getting into.

After tonight we will be 3.5 ahead of the Brewers and 4 ahead of the Cards. Nice to sleep well for a change excited homer simpson GIF. Go ahead and fly the flag Hozer, this has been over for a while lmao . El Mago batted left for fun and he did hit a deep fly ball haha . 12-5 to the bottom of the 9th.

I'd love that. Sign me up. :D There are some very nice people here. 

 

I am pretty sure the Vikes play the Colts in 2020. If they play in Indy, I may attend.

We look really good right now but still a ways to go brother. I am feeling good about this now but things can change quickly in baseball lmao . We have had the best team over the last 5 seasons so why I doubt these guys is my problem :funny:

It is looking way ahead but if we play the Dodgers in the NLCS, we have to put pressure on them early. That is our only chance, they are very strong. We have to steal game 1 in LA to have a chance. I know I am looking way ahead but teams that win game 1 in the NLCS win 77% of all series in the history of MLB.

And the Cardinals freefall has begun.  Most everyone in the starting lineup is back and healthy, then we start losing.  No idea why they extended Carpenter...I think he's toast, for the most part.  Ozuna says he wants to stay in St. Louis, but he's become injury prone.

 

Nothing done of significance before the trade deadline, while the Cubs got better.

 

There needs to be a major shake up in the front office in St. Louis if they don't make the playoffs for a 4 straight season.  Their formula isn't working.

Dang it! I knew the Cubs should have saved some of those runs for tonight, they seem to have taken the night off again. 5-1 Reds in the 7th with the only run coming ala HR by you guessed it, Castellanos!

 I listened to the first few innings but stopped to get ready for the WNBA game featuring Jackie Young that starts at 9:30 on CBSSN

Yep, that was brutal and the road woes continue. Before this 10 day road trip begin I said I would be happy with 5-5 and at this point I will be. We then will play 6 in a row at home. Lead is down to 1.5 over the Brewers and 2 over the Cards. Cards are playing the Pirates right now and the Pirates can't beat their way out of a wet paper bag. If you want to gain ground just play the Pirates haha

Cubs win Fly the flag Hozer,

 

I am happy, 2-2 vs this team is a win on the road lmao . I am being serious. We usually stink against these guys. Reds have a good club. It's all good. MVP saved the day and he should now and then being the great young player he is.

This game started off very bad until MVP and Happ saved the day!!!! Cubs off tomorrow, then back at it in Philly on Tuesday!

Happ has been impressive lately. Strop looked great in relief too.

When MVP came up in the 7th I had a feeling he was going to hit one out. He was due. Watching this team all season I just felt it.

He was definitely clutch today.  I read earlier that Chisek when in the IL for inflammation........So many injuries starting to pop up. Zobrist has been hitting Dingers in the minors, so well hopefully be seeing him back soon! Strap on your seatbelt Brother, it’s going to be a bumpy ride to the finish I’m afraid!

Ok, going into August 12th the NL Central standings look like this:

 

Cubs 64-54

Cards 61-55 (2 back)

Brewers 62-57 (2.5 back)

Reds 56-60 (7 back)

Pirates 48-69 (15.5 back)

 

-At the beginning of the season if anyone would've told me this would be the case on August 12th, I would've took it. I thought the Cards would have 70 wins by now, I really did. Cubs are right where I thought they would be (10 above .500 or so) and I had us as a wildcard. We still have a shot at winning the division despite the Cards having the better roster IMO. We won a WS recently and still have a talented roster but it isn't as great as 2016. Cards overall have a better roster. Brewers are pretty equal to us. We do have Joe Maddon though and IMO he is the better manager of the 3 teams.

What a wasted outing by Q. We just can't figure it out on the road. I have no idea why.

 

The road woes continue. You know, at least they kept this one close and were in it literally until the end, Heyward had a chance for a walkoff but couldn’t get it done. I would much rather see these types of losses then the sloppy ones they’ve had lately. Still a loss though and that sucks.

 

On a side note...I’m having a tough time biting my tongue over on the Colts forum, my word there is some major stupidity being spread. I need to stop going over there and reading that crap.

The road trip is half over, Cards and Brewers are both winning tonight. If they both win we will still be in 1st place but the lead in the NL Central is dwindling.

I had to meet some relatives for dinner so I missed the last 3 innings. I am here now and Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu pitched a great game. He got a win at Wrigley :thmup:. Cards lost as well, so the Cubs are now at 60-51 and Cards are now at 58-52. We have a 1.5 game lead in the NL Central and the sweep of the Brewers (who fall to 57-56) puts us 4 ahead of them. Brewers fans talked so much junk last season and at the beginning of this season, so glad to see them struggle.

Lol here we are right back where I said we would be , Cards stunk up the west coast trip. At that time it worried me. Now back within a Game of Cubs. It will come down to head to head most likely . However the Cards probably have a more favorable schedule down the stretch so who knows. Its going to be interesting and wouldn't have it any other way. I think your better off fighting to get in the playoffs than cruising in sometimes that has a negative effect.

I know it's far from over and we have some guys coming back from the IL.

 

I do wish they would go back to at least a 3 game series for the Wild Card teams.  All the effort to get a Wild Card birth and then have it be a one and done seems useless.

I wish they would to Barry.

Signed by our long-time Mets radio announcer Howie Rose (pictured). Mets have been doing a lot of that lately (winning), albeit against poor teams. Let's see how they play against the Nats.

They are still in the hunt

    • Smith to RG and draft a tackle?   or    Draft a RG and leave Smith at RT.
    • Im talking Dj Chark or Evans type. I wanted the Colts to draft Chark. We could have got him instead we got Turay and Lewis lol. Not complaining can hit on everything. Drafted Chark.
    • Actually those are all short heights for the average NFL reciever. I think I said a bigger possession reciever. Something more like 6'4 6'5. I guess Pascal is average height. I want that guy with a huge catch radius who can go up and bring down those high 50/50 throws. Dont get me wrong we have good talent but height insnt coachable. If you find TY talent that is 6'4 you take it over 5'9.
    • I think it doesn´t matter which Qb (IF at all)  you take at 15 (or 14 or16...),he should sit a year and learn anyway. So it wouldn´t be really a loss to start him in his 2nd year.
    • I thought we’d go 8-8 or 9-7 with JB, the rooks, turmoil of losing a franchise QB. we’re not that far off, even with all the injuries.  Which were many.   I was hoping we’d squeak in the playoffs.   I also thought Frank wanted an offense that put pressure on the D.  I really didnt see the creativity i did last year.  Not gimmicks, But creativity in formations and playcalling.  Perhaps it was due to our losses at WR and TE.  I also was confused by our bi-polar personality when it comes to risk and being aggressive.   I dont think the sky is falling (long-term), but some changes, and perhaps tweaks, are necessary.
