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

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

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

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?

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.

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.

    • So 2 of their starting WRs are out, and one of the number 2s is questionable.  They are basically down to one healthy starter (Hoagan), a questionable depth guy, and one healthy depth guy. Josh Malone has been signed to the active roster.   Starting RT is out, starting C is questionable.    Gotta feel sorry for Darnold. Not really. Hope we crush him lol.    
    • I agree with the WR statement, not necessarily a high first round pick  Then again, Pittman isn't really a take-the-top-off the defense type of WR like TY is, and Ballard spent a very high second on him.    Reich's offense is supposed to be about disbursing the ball around with plays schemed to assist non-stud pass catchers, more so than the offense we used to have.  But any NFL offense needs playmakers who can do something with the ball once they get it.     Having mid level talented skilled position players is sort of what we've had, and the lack of individual playmaking puts too much pressure on the QB and play caller executing the correct play.  Coaches benefit from having a player who can make two moves and go 60 yards by themselves, and they tend to not be found in mid to late rounds.   Also agreed about CB.  The zone scheme doesn't need a shut down corner like VD.  The scheme does need a 3 tech on the dline, and a better pass rush, so its nice to see the investment of pick 13 into a position that matters with the Buckner acquisition.   Personally, I think the pass rush can be done by committee.  Even great players get gassed.  But there should be one DE along with Buckner that the defense has to account for when he's in the game.  I think that player requires a first round investment.   I've always been less enthused about the need for a stud TE.  I think the plamaking pass catchers should be the WRs and versatile RBs, but to get the kind of TEs the NFL seems to want, I think its going to take a pretty high pick.   And then there is AC's retirement looming.  Always need a 1st rounder for a LT if you want him to start as a rookie, unless dumb luck lets one drop out of tree.
    • I really don't give 2 sheets about Ebron, but it's still all speculation. We don't know what the argument was.   But as I've said before, going from a guy who was our primary red zone target, to only getting 3 targets inside the 10 in 11 games in 2019 is pretty WTH, especially given our problems on O. And aside from his 3 drops in the Oakland game, he was pretty good (0 drops in the Pitt game and 3 games leading up to it) afterwards.    IMO, the writing was on the wall in terms of him not being extended. I don't blame him for going and getting his body taken care of if he knows he's not coming back. It's business.   At Pitt so far, he's got 4 catches for 61 yards, and 3 of those are for 1st downs. He's also had 2 drops.    
    • We need to worry about ourselves in this game. Players need to be smart and focused. No turnovers, no foolish mistakes. If we do that then we’ll be fine. But if we start turning over the ball in our own territory, then it’ll be a long afternoon.    We better be mentally prepared...
