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...

Yeah Moose is a very important player, he won some games playing with the Brewers. Regarding Votto, he drilled that pitch but it was just a perfect line out that Almora was able to get. He made great contact though.

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

   What is Bell doing?

Insane isn’t it? He’s acting as if we need to save our pitcher’s arms... Someone needs to remind him we only have 60 games!

It is mind boggling as a Cub fan

Last I looked Cubs were up 6-3 in the 9th. I will take beating the Reds at least twice in a 4 game series all day if it happens. Winning the 1st 2 makes it a possibility that the Cubs could take 3 of 4. Hendricks is pitching tomorrow. It is a 4 game set.

Cubs win! Cubs defeat the Reds 8-5 and go to 4-1 on the season and lead the NL Central. Fly the flag @HOZER

You guys have looked good. The Reds continue to be a disappointment like usual haha... 

 

I had a feeling we were too hyped up. At some point we’re going to have to spend the big $$$ to get a strong manager. It’s been mediocre since Dusty left.

Not really. He’s had a trend that started last year where he pulls his starters way too early.

Strangely Maddon did that a lot unless Jake or Hendricks was pitching. He even did it with Lester quite a bit. Other than Chapman we have had a suspect bullpen too since 2016. I am nervous when they come in lmao

Man I know it is early but we look fantastic so far.


Even Chatwood has looked good! Let’s hope our bullpen can get it worked out!

Well... the Reds offense is much better when we have our 3 starters back. Surprised they allowed Senzel and Moustakas to play tonight, but I’ll take it!

Yeah this is the 1st one this season where I do this go away pink GIF by Hacklock, flushing the toilet haha. 9-0 Reds.

It happens. Starting the year at 4-2 is still very good. 
 

But this does show a problem for this year for everyone: players who normally play with the sniffles are going to be out for days, and that means potential losses. 
 

I don’t even know where to start with how the Marlins season is turning out.

Cubs still have 1 weakness and it is their bullpen. That is major actually. It has been like that since Chapman left after 2016.

Apparently it’s our weakness too. Our closer’s era after tonight is 18.00. That’s absolutely atrocious lol... 
 

Good game Cubs fans, your team is going to be tough this year!

Nice win, I would've been surprised with a sweep.

The Mets bullpen is pretty bad too. Two of the 3 games the Mets have lost were games they were winning in the late innings, including one with 2 outs in the 9th with a one-run lead.

Yeah, that’s very frustrating, completely undoes the work of the starter.

Hey guys, I'm back...was on vacation (at home) for the past week and was able to catch some baseball.   I took a break from this Forum and the internet, in general.

 

After a nice start, the Cardinals have dropped 3 straight and now face the Brewers.

 

Cubs look good so far and the NL Central will be interesting in this short season.  We lost Mikolas for the year and Carlos Martinez got pounded in his first start.  So, our pitching has not looked very good, with the exception of Wainwright's start.

 

But, we'll see what happens...going to be lots of ups and downs in the short season, but games mean even more than they would in a 162 game season.  I heard that each game in the 60 game season is the equivalent of 2.7 games in a regular 162 game season.

If I’ve learning anything over the years of following baseball, it’s that you never count the Cardinals out. They’ll find a way to the postseason someway, they nearly always do haha...

I'm afraid if the trend of players testing positive and/or contracting Covid-19 at the rate it's been going for the first week of the season, then I have serious doubts that MLB will finish the current season.

 

Won't be surprised if MLB shuts down by mid-August.
