Cubs win 8-2 over the Reds, fly the flag Hozer. Cards won tonight as well so they are still 2 ahead in the NL Central. 

 

Did I hear that right? Cubs Bullpen leads the league in ERA for month of September? Wow! Keep it up boys, maybe we can catch those Cardinals!!! One game at a time, GoCubsGo!

Brewers won tonight as well, so we are still only 1 game ahead of them for the final wildcard spot. The division is still winnable though. Our bullpen has been pitching much better the last 2 weeks. Our bats are unreal right now :thmup:

Could have really used that win last night.....ugh. Yu started off cold and made up for it later with 13 strikeouts, including 8 in a row! Too bad the damage was already done and they couldn’t get more runs in. Reds playing with nothing to lose now, can be an issue for teams still in the hunt.

 

GoCubsGo!

We are now down 3-2 in the 10th to the Reds. If we lose this game it will be costly. At least the Brewers lost tonight.

Costly loss for the Cubs tonight, Reds playing spoiler. Just can't continue to lose games like that and make the playoffs. Bad news is, we fall 3 games behind the Cards in the NL Central heading into our 4 games series with them starting tomorrow at Wrigley. Good news is, we are still tied with the Brewers at 82-70 for the final Wildcard spot. Only 10 games left and 7 of them are against the Cards.

Cubs shoot themselves in the foot again. As you guys have been saying, it’s going to be a fight until the end between Cubs and Cards, with the Brewers trying to get in on the action.

It is put up or shutup time now. We let one get away last night.

Dont know what it is with the Cubs. Zobrist comes back and they bring in a guy like Castellanos, who are both doing great. Our bullpen starts to get it together, Yu starts doing great, even Chatwood, but then the bats go silent. It’s been an interesting season. Last season they had to fight just to get into the wildcard then got knocked out, this season they’re fighting tooth in nail just to get into the wildcard. Somethings going to have to change, especially if they Miss the playoffs altogether. Do you think Theo will give Maddon his walking papers if that’s the case?

I was thinking the same thing after the loss last night. If we fail to make the playoff, I think Theo needs to go after younger pitching and yes Maddon will be fired IMO. Lester and Hamels both look shaky. I like Hendricks a lot.

I think the Brewers will win the division.  They get Pirates, Reds and Rockies to end the season.   Cubs get Cardinals and Pirates.    Cardinals get the Cubs and Diamondbacks.   

 

Go Cardinals!

We need the Nats to lose so maybe, if the Brewers do win it, the Cubs and Cards can get the 2 wild card spots and play each other again.   Nats remaining schedule is Marlins, Phillies and Indians.

Yeah I thought the same thing. Before the season started I had the Cards, Cubs, and Brewers all making the playoffs. I did not count on the Nats being this good. Their last 2 series will be real tough.

Well, here we go!!!  Cards and Cubs can control their own destiny now.  Hoping the Reds can play spoiler when they take on the Brewers.

 

Just wish I could get the STL v. CHI games on TV here...maybe the networks will have some and leave the Yankees and Dodgers alone for a few games so the rest of the nation can watch someone else.

The game is actually on Fox (WXIN), you should be able to get it. Yeah Baseball is putting this game on Fox so everyone can see it.

4-1 Cards now in the 6th. Cubs are just not hitting and not playing great defense. Cards do look like the better team as I have said all season actually. So if we lose I can accept it. The Cards simply won the offseason by getting Goldschmidt, Theo needs to make some changes heading into 2020 if we fail to make the playoffs.

After failing the way they did against the Reds, I’m not surprised to see them struggling like this against a good team.   Not looking good.

118 pitches for Flaherty, he’s doing a great job against the Sorry Cubs bats, but not sure it’s a great idea leaving him in this long, could have repercussions later, imo.

He just flat out has dominated us. Cards are really that great.

Yep, this is the Kimbrel I was afraid would show up. Carpenter with a HR, back on top. Goldshmidt up, let’s see what gift he’s given.

And Madden yanks him after getting Goldie out...Not sure unless it’s a better matchup?

Bottom of the 10th, they should just roll Flaherty back out, that would effectively shut the Cubs down.

 

If they lose this game, my opinion on Kimbrel will drop further down. And before anyone says it’s tough coming back from injury, he seems to be injured often, a very expensive benchwarmer that I’m pretty sure has cost us more games then gotten us wins(I’ll have to check on that.) I was so excited when we signed him, just sucks he hasn’t been as good as advertised. I prob just need to be more patient, I wasn’t with Yu and boy has he made me eat crow.

Not really sure why Madden put in Bote and Lucroy when Zobrist and Contreras were catching fire, doesn’t make sense to me at all. As I say that Bote strikes out.

    • He had his best year last year, getting 13 starts on D in Detroit.  He also plays ST.   We needed depth at S and I think he was the best FA S available at this time.  Still curious as to why Geathers remains unsigned anywhere.
    • He only played more than 6 games two times in his career.  He was a first-team all-pro and pro-bowler both times.  He had a 44 inch vertical and a 4.3 forty and was a freak of an athlete.  Unfortunately, he had trouble staying healthy throughout his career or he would likely have gone down as an all-time great.        Yes, even though he only played 4 games in the 2006 regular season, his return for the playoffs was huge. We had the worst run D in the league (every game that year, in regular season, we let up >100 yards rushing) and in the playoffs we had the second best allowing only 73 yards per game.  Aside from the forced fumble in the SB, he had a big play in the AFCCG breaking up a pass with 2:30 seconds left in the 4th quarter when we were down 34-31 on a 3rd and 4 (scroll to 2 hr  2 min portion of this video: https://www.colts.com/video/2006-afc-championship-game-indianapolis-colts-vs-new-england-patriots).  Had the Pats converted, they would've run out the clock.  He also intercepted Rex Grossman with ~10 min. left in the 4th quarter (the drive after Hayden took a INT to the house to put us up 29-17) which did a lot to kill any chance of a comeback from the Bears.  Look how fast he closes on this ball:   
    • hey, gotta think positive with all this doom and gloom around this year
    • Remember our argument a few months before Luck retired where you said Luck was elite and I said he didn't have the passion for the game and Mahomes would win a SB before him? That happened very quickly and I can at least say before Mahomes won a SB and Luck retired that I liked Mahomes over Luck.
    • I don't think Luck is netting anywhere near that type of return...just too much uncertainty at this point.
