Yep now hes out for season .

Yeah thanks for the Baez comment above. Cubs have been hit with the injury bug a lot lately. Brewers have a 3 game series coming up with the Cards starting tomorrow. I am half tempted to root for the Cards and hope when we play the Cards we come out of that 4-3 or 3-4

What if he can play second base ?

 

Then Russell kicks rocks. Not sure what we’d get for him with his baggage. Also not sure when he becomes a free agent. Cubs Bullpen was main issue, now it seems the bats have fallen silent. What gives?

Darvish with 12 strikeouts so far in the bottom of the 6th!!! He’s been bringing it lately, too bad he’s one of the only ones.

I was really worried coming into today but so far it is looking like Yu is saving the day.

Cubs win, Cubs win, 4-1 over SD. What a huge win. Fly the flag Hozer. This is how the NL playoff picture looks as of now:

Dodgers 94-53 #1 seed winning the West

Braves 91-56 #2 seed winning the East

Cards 82-64 #3 seed winning the Central

Nats 80-64 #4 seed, first Wildcard spot

Cubs and Brewers are tied for the final Wildcard spot at 78-68. Cubs have a 3 game series coming up at home vs the Pirates, Brewers travel to St. Louis for 3 games. Brewers have won 7 in a row, they are due to lose now and without Yelich I can see their bite not being as big. They just played the Marlins, now they are facing the Cards, huge difference.

If anyone is wondering, if the Cubs and Brewers end up with the same record than they would play a 1 game tiebreaker to determine who gets into the playoffs.

Pirates put up 4 runs in the 1st inning. Cubs comeback and put up 5 runs in the bottom of the 1st lmao . I was ready to jump all over this team but the Cubs never cease to amaze me. Lester is very shaky so far and I am not sure if it is just age or maybe he isn't 100%? 5-4 Cubs to the 2nd, what an unreal 1st inning.

Yeah, the old flag is bringing us good luck. I think Russell's days may be over if Nico continues this. Baez will be a Cub for life IMO. When we went down 4-0 I was angry, just no excuse I was thinking. 10-4 now. We need to sweep the Pirates being at home to gain momentum, Pirates are a bad team so I should think that. No Cubs team has ever made the playoffs 5 seasons in a row since the MLB has started in 1903, we are playing for that part of history.

Bro, it’s gotta be the FLAG!!!!!!!! Are the Pirates that bad or are the Cubs heating up at the right time??? No offense to the Pirates fans on here btw, I know it hasn’t been a good season, but I hope it’s more the Cubs getting hot! GoCubsGo!!!

It is the flag, it has now sparked us. We just crushed those guys today. :thmup:. MVP is on a tear with another HR and how about Nico? Nico is batting nearly .400 and also hit a HR today.

    • Yep. Some are allergic or get sick when they take pain pills...they are so very fortunate in that way. Others are not as lucky. And a person with easy access to a consistent supply (like a pro football player for example)...that could get ugly real fast.   Not to deter the thread...but what is happening with Purdue Pharma is too little too late...there is no way they can repay the debt for the damage they cause. 
    • Tom Brady at 38 went 12-4, 4770 yards, 36 touchdowns with 7 interceptions.   Peyton at 37 and 38 went:  13-3, 5477 yards, 50 touchdowns and 10 INT 12-4, 4727, 39 TD, 15 INT   father time catches up eventually, yes. But at 38, guys have performed at the highest level. Anything close to the numbers above will make this roster a championship caliber team. 
    • I mean... Just from personal experience: it's really, really easy to get hooked on that crap. I nearly fell into that path after my tonsillectomy... My family has a long history of addiction, so it's always in the back of my head to be extra careful.  
    • Personally, I think Dak is going to end up going the Kirk Cousins route and will end up being franchised twice before signing with another team in 2022. With the Mahomes deal, the bar was raised even higher for QB's. And even though Dak is not going to get Mahomes money he is is probably going to get between 37-40 million a year. Will the Colts be willing to pay that? I don't know, but I do believe that Dak will play this season and next under the franchise tag before moving onto greener pastures.
    • Texans traded for and gave Tunsil a 3 year extension to his rookie contract. I see them doing something similar to Watson after this year.  Thus Watson would play 5th year option in 2021 at $17.5 million, then get 3 years added at 31+ mil per season, with much (if not all) guaranteed, taking him through 2024.  This circumvents using franchise tags that would keep the UFA on the roster, but maybe sow derision as well.     Texans were improving as a group, notably toward the end of last year, and then added Tunsil.  Max Scharping at left guard and Tytus Howard at right tackle are no longer rookies. That group won't chase Watson away.     Never say never, but this more a dream then reality. Coaches that give up on franchise QB's get kicked to the curb. Even BoB knows this.
