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

Oh My... Who do I watch today?

Pacers or Cubs...

 

Ha, no problem, I've got two TV's connected to cable in my living room.

Just switch between audio from the feeds... yes I am a sports junkie!

 

FLY THE W

GO CUBS GO!!!

As long as you don't go to a bar to watch them, you should be ok. :thmup:

Can't everything is closed, you can only get carry out food.

 

I know. I was joking.

 

I did not realize basketball was still taking place.

 

The Cubs are doing well. I hope the season will continue but Rob Manfred seemed to indicate that they may have to terminate the season. That would be terrible.

Not good news for the Mets

     Yoenis Cespedes is AWOL in Atlanta and Jed Lowrie has been placed on the 45 day IL after only 7 AB so JL made 2,857,142.86 an AB

 

   @NFLfan

 

Lol. That is why I don't like to spend big money on free agents.

To the bottom of the 11th, 1-1. That crowd noise sounds real. That is one thing baseball did get right lmao .

 

Did the extra innings start with a guy on second base? As I wrote before, I am not crazy about it.

I dont think he will, I dont think he had medical condition to warrant it and that is how they get paid, otherwise you just can opt out and no pay.

They need the money since they paid Jed Lowrie 20M for 7 ABs

Lol. They need the money for a lot more. They are still paying Bobby Bonilla. I hear that will end in 2035 or so. What a smart move by him. He has money coming to him well into his 60s.

 

The Mets need to learn that free agency is not always the way to go. The Mets have been burned by almost every older high-priced free agent they have acquired. (Mo Vaugn, Jason Bay, Michael Cuddyer, so many more.)

They will be paying Cano until he is 40 at least

Yeah the 10th and 11th innings did it. I don't like that rule either but today the Cubs benefited from it haha

I enjoyed the rule but grew up around it

    It makes the Coaches and D step up their play

In the post game interview, David Ross seems to like it as well. He was saying you really have to manage well and use smart strategy to overcome that obstacle. I still like the old way better though.

The best record in the AL so far is the Yankees at 8-1. Best record in the NL so far is the Cubs at 8-2. I guess if they cancel the season those 2 teams should share the WS Title lmao 

Actually the NBA thought about doing that with Bucks and Lakers a couple of months ago because they had the 2 best records in their conference.

Great start 9-2

Bullpen keeping it interesting.  lmao

On the road next 8 days, gotta keep it up. 

 

GO CUBS GO 

5-4 Cubs win again over the Royals. 9-2 is a sizzling hot start. Our bullpen still scares me haha .

    • Last I checked Russell Wilson ain't a RB.  If you can't see that JT is stiff in the hips and so far his vision and anticipation is sub par and pretty predictable because just about every wisco rb in the past 20 years had the same problem adjusting to the nfl from the primitive badger running scheme them I really don't have a whole lot to add to you as a poster even though you make long posts.     So you don't recognize the difference in the line this year to Mcks rookie year.  Ok I dibt know how to respond to that.  I mean it would be like arguing with a kid.   You haven't noticed that JT tends to run right into the backs of his online them I wonder if you really watch the games.   You assign the lack of rushing production to play calling without taking into consideration that JT s lack of agility us likely a major cause of that.   We are going to have to run under center probably with a FB to maximize Jts game.  That is patently obvious.   The line sucks the QBs sucks the receivers suck and the coach sucks.  That is your real argument as to why this guy is not dazzling out is the backfield.   He will be good I short yardage .  Occasionally he will break long ones when their are wide obvious lanes.  He will gain some yds when schemed open in the passing game.   He MAY develop some vision over time and quit throwing away big gains by running into the backs of linemen  ut if this I am skeptical.   He will maximize his potential as a1 cut back if he learns to anticipate but this is often instinctive and not guaranteed.   We shall see.
    • Sweet Jesus - isn’t it about time for you to take another long winter’s nap?   Go get some rest and come back in the spring with tales of Player X is a future hall of fame level player. 
    • I am aware of who Philly has at the position.  Does not impact the point at all.    Nobody was giving up a 2nd round pick for AB.    My entire point is no one is giving up that high of a pick for Ertz with his current circumstances.    If your proposed deal was offered to Philly they would take it in a nanosecond. No one will though. 
    • Yeah man.  Just about anything but an Achilles.  No guarantee he and Hooket will even walk right anymore 
    • Honestly, keep running well and improving your vision and find the holes. The YPC is becoming very consistent and solid. Just find the holes, don't fumble, and you should be alright.   The way teams are stacking the box Vs him just shows how good he actually is already. Rivers isn't doing him any favors tbh.
