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.

Bullpen keeping it interesting.  lmao

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

    • Which is why teams don’t do that down three score.  Just building off your point.
    • There is nothing wrong with pulling for your time.  That’s why most of us are here.  You shouldn’t be shamed for that.     With that said, remember people who point out flaws aren’t always doing it to be doom and gloom they are just saying hey this is what I saw and I think it could be a problem.  The vast majority of those people would love to be wrong and for it not be a problem and for the Colts to win every game they play.  I know I am that way when I point out something I think is a problem.     To me it’s not about being right, although I will admit to some here it is, it’s just reacting to what I saw and if I end up wrong so be it.  If I am wrong and it turns out good for the Colts I’ll be happy to be wrong.  
    • A parlay is a sports book bet that has multiple games and you must win them all to collect.  But at much better odds than even odds for picking just 1 game.   If all the games all have even money lines a multiple parlayed pays approximately: 2 team pays 3-1 3 team pays 6-1 4 team pays 10-1 5 team pays 20-1    Money lines of course affect parlay odds. Point spreads are approx odds shown above.
    • I think the problem is people take comments out of context on both sides and take it to the extreme.  Example if you say hey I don’t think Frank called a good game someone is going to say you are calling for him to be fired.  At the same time if you say hey Rivers played a good game on Sunday someone is going to take that as you saying Rivers is the best ever QB problems solved!  I think everyone would be better served to just take things at face value and not try to read into it to make your opinion, whatever it might be, stronger.  
    • Nah..  But I'm sure somebody somewhere will give Reich or Ballard credit for being geniuses lol.
