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...

    • If we traded for Jones, we’d likely have to give up a 1st round pick.   If we do that Jones isn’t coming here to “compete” for the starting job.   He’s coming here as the man, the starter.     Eason would be the backup.  
    • Not even terrible players want to play for the Jets. Lol
    • Could you imagine Michael Thomas in this offense? We can dream, right? Will it happen? Probably not.
    • Ask the same question at the end of 2021 season. It will be interesting to know everyone's answer by then
    • Note-1:   I never care if any poster and I agree or disagree.   I care far more about the arguments you make to back up your point.      Note-2:   You post a lot.  Not complaining.  And when you post a smart, thoughtful post, as you often do,  I give it a like.  I only give a negative emoji (said or laughing) when I think it's called for.   I don't do it all the time with you.   Earlier this week,  you literally wrote that you try to give a player a half a season before making a judgement.   When I got done laughing,  my response was....   Oh, really?    Where was the half season for Okereke?    Where was the half season for Willis?   Where is the half season for Blackmon?    Where is the half season for Burton?    Where was the half season for Brissett?    I'm sure there are more,  but you get the point.    None of these guys got a game, much less a half-season.   Okereke:   You didn't like him on draft day.   Said he can't play the run.   Somehow in his first year,  Okereke was the highest graded rookie linebacker in the NFL.  Not in the AFC South.  Not in the whole AFC.   But in the entire National Football league.   Now this year, he's not playing the pass well.  And your're all over that.   So, how exactly did Okereke become the highest graded rookie linebacker in the NFL?   Because if a poster only read your posts about him,  one would think Okereke is terrible.  One would think Ballard blew the draft pick.  Your commentary is totally one sided.   Willis:   You didn't like him from the jump.   You criticized him after the Buffalo pre-seasonn game.   He played a lot his rookie year.  He's starting this year.   He may not be great,  but most think he's pretty good.   You think he's a situational safety in the box...  a hybrid linebacker I think you called him.   The front office and coaching staff think otherwise.   Blackmon:   Yet another you didn't like on a draft day.   You've been calling him a future STRONG safety from the beginning.   The GM,  the scouting staff,  the HC,  the DC and the position coach -- everyone -- has called him a free safety.   But up until this week,  you've been hinting that you're not yet convinced.   And when Blackmon started making plays,  you told other posters not to get too excited because he was doing it against bad offenses.   Then, he has yet another good game against Cincy and now you're starting to move your position.   Moving like a glacier.   Maybe he's a FS afterall.  So, now you're new argument is that the coaching staff made Hooker look bad by using him in the wrong defense and they're making Blackmon look good by putting him in the right defense.   So, you're now explaining why you've been wrong by blaming the coaching staff.   Burton:   Didn't like the signing at all.   In fact, while he was injured and before he played a single game you wrote about how you hoped the staff didn't use him too much.   So, he plays his first game,  scores two TD's, one rushing and one receiving, and back you jump to tell posters not to get too excited...   that sincy has a bad defense.     There always has to be an explanation why you're well stated positions seem wrong.   It can't just be that you're wrong.   Brissett:   When Jacoby Brissett started off 5-2 there you were telling everyone it was Fools Gold.   You think the rest of the season proves you were right.   Many of us think the fact that he was hurt in the Pittsburgh game which led to his falloff in play is the reason.  Either way, he didn't get a half season from you.   You were negative from the start and shaped your arguments accordingly.   Reich:   You and I are long on the record on our view on Reich.   And you don't deny that you're argument about the entire 2018 season came down to one game, the playoff game vs. Cincy.   And now it continues.   This week,  you went out of your way to say how much you like Reich (As a GUY!)   He passes the famous Beer Test.   Which brings us to this thread...  it's title is "10 burning questions about our WR group."   But one look at it and it's not hard to see it could also be titled  "10 more examples of how bad a play caller Frank Reich is.   Or,  Why does Frank Reich suck so much?"     Summary:   You have lots of interesting observations.   You think you're protected by the use of Next Gen Stats.   Frankly, I don't think you know how to use them -- at least,  not honestly.   So, my arguments are not that you do or don't like any given player.   It's how you present your argument.   How you present your case.   I'm rarely impressed.   When I am, you get a "like" from me.   Not that you care, and I don't expect you to.   I'm just saying I try to be fair with you.   I give credit when you earn it.   And I show my disapproval when I don't think you're being honest.   You give players a half year to show themselves?    Yeah,  that's not true, and I think I just showed it.
