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

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

11 Marlin's Players have tested positive for Covid. Their game tonight is postponed as well as the Phillies where they just played. BAL is planning to return home from Miami and if they do play it would be games in BAL per reports.

 

COVID-19 is creating lots of problems. I can't see how football will be played. Some football players (OL, DL) are at higher risk because of their weight. It is a mess.

Basketball has it right, hardly nobody is testing positive because they are in a bubble. The NBA is going to finish the season IMO.

Cubs up 6-0 over the Reds after the 2nd. Great stuff!

Reds just don’t have it tonight. This makes the David Bell’s decisions against the Tigers even more baffling.

What is a bubble? Is the NBA playing now? I thought their season starts in October or November?

I was surprised when I seen the score.

Yeah. Moustakas is out with an “illness”, and I’m wondering if the virus is in some of the player’s heads tonight with everything going on.

Fly the flag Hozer, Cubs win 8-7. Now 3-1 on the season. Reds had one hell of a comeback but we held them off. We are now 3-1 in the division, I will take that all day. Lester got the win.

Yup, was sweating bullets there at the end. Will take the W whatever

 

(I was cussing the bullpen... full disclosure) LOL

Yeah that was a gut wrenching ending especially with Votto up with bases loaded. Kimbrel isn't cutting the mustard in my book, he wasn't good last year either. I miss Chapman.

oprah winfrey relax GIF

Well it was nice to see the Reds actually show up. For a while there I thought it was gonna be the same ole Reds. 
 

 

I felt like I was going have heart attack following that game, I was at work on top of it lmao . Reds are dangerous. I thought for sure the Reds were going to win when Votto came up with bases loaded. I even told a co-worker it is over haha .

Votto’s usually clutch for that stuff, but he’s not the player he used to be for sure.

Also don't forget about the NHL. They begin in Aug. 1 with their qualifying games. They are in Edmonton WC and Toronto EC for that  and Stanley Cup will be in Toronto. They too will be in a bubble environment

As 2006 said only one guy, and he was out of bubble for funeral originally, not stuck in quarantine for 10 days. Anyone else who leaves bubble gets a few days.

I am curious with him, He had the last two nights with game tying run on third. I am use to him normally being able to drive them in. I wonder if it is his age or something else

Yeah, I think it’s in his head. He’s been ace early for each game, but when it’s all on him at the end he seems to fade. 
 

Moustakas being out has really been noticeable, which is saying something considering we only got him for one game haha...

    • No idea you are a woman, always thought you were a guy. Learned something today on the forum!
    • so the only Colt impacted is Nelson?   So do I have this right - now teams could release a 5th year option player after year 4 and not be on the hook for the contract unless he got hurt in in that 4th year?   If that is right, seems a minimal impact rule to me.  
    • Using Mahomes as an example is kinda an exercise in futility.  Of course you trade multiple picks for the best QB in the game.  I would give up 3 first round and two 2nds for Mahomes and a third any day of the week. That trade is the exception and not the rule.  The real expectation level should be set at what should we do for a QB like Matt Ryan, D Watson or Matt Stafford.  All three are good solid QBs but not in the conversation as the best.  This is most likely the ceiling of whatever QB we would get.  You can build teams around them and compete in the playoffs but if you miss on other parts of the roster it can make you miss the playoffs.     I would not trade more than two first round picks to move up for a QB of this caliber.  They aren’t good enough to overcome multiple deficiencies on a team.  They are good enough to take an average team and put them in the playoffs tho.  Combine that with a good coaching staff and you have a shot at making a run in the playoffs.  This team has upcoming needs at premium positions: Tackle, DE and corner and we need the draft picks to get replacements to start grooming. Kinda in no mans land right now so something will have to be sacrificed unless we get lucky.  This decision will make or break Ballards career and I’m sure he knows this.  I appreciate his willingness to be patient and search for the right guy.  I hope it pays off and he finds him.  
    • Seriously - who is going to be giving up a 2nd round pick for “an injured tight end on a big contract?”   I mean if he is out 6-8 weeks as suggested, what good would he do a team this year anyway?  And would he not be able to pass the physical until after the trade deadline has passed?   To me the answer to all these questions lie in Philly as in that is where he finishes the season. 
    • I see some talent but nothing that truly blows my dress up.  Nothing that says go ahead and pay the ransoms it will take to get him.    This is really a ridiculous thread anyway - the Giants will not be giving up on Jones just two years in unless they are in position to draft Lawrence or Fields. That won’t happen because they are in the NFC East and will stumble into enough wins to take away that possibility.
