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

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

Me too. He deserves a Ring. I never blamed him for what happened. Many Cubs fans did though. Cubs just choked with error's and bad play in Game 6. Still had Game 7 at home and lost as well.

Very nice gesture.   Is this the only thing the Cubs did for him in all this time?   Just curious.   I hope not.   He was treated so unfairly by too many of the Cubs fans.

They have tried other things like wanting him to come to a game for free for example but he has always refused to be a part of the Cubs since what happened. The Ring gesture is pretty awesome.

Then you have some dumb reporters like the one below who have an issue with it.......you know what, get over yourself lady, quit trying to be an edgy reporter and make the Cubs look bad. The Cubs organization didn't go after him or try to ruin or hurt him in any way..... in fact, not only did they protect him right after it happened, but they reached out to him numerous times to try to make it right. He didn't want anything to do with it, and actually still remained a Cubs fan after everything. The Team doesn't even have the same owners as they did in 2003 for Petes sake!!!!!It was a select few NUTJOB fans that made his life hell, not the Cubs!!!  It is an AWESOME gesture IMO. If the rest of her stories or comments are like this then I won't be surprised if they let her walk after her contract expires......

I totally agree. The Cubs security got him out of the stadium really well and he made it out without injury, I say that because you had fans throwing things at him, etc.. Also the organization tried several different things to make it up to him and refused them all. A few fans caused the whole thing basically.

I don't know, she may not be all wrong.   I like that she speaks her mind instead of just riding along with the ESPN agenda on everything.  

 

It is time to just put the Bartman fiasco in the past.

What better way to do that then to give him a ring and say sorry for what our fans did to you? They didn't have to give him one, and even if he didn't want it I'm guessing he could sell it and maybe make some good money off of it! I have no problem with her speaking her mind, just think she's wrong in this case IMO.

She may be just partially correct.   We don't know if the Cubs did this as a publicity stunt or if it was "heartfelt".   I suspect some of both.

Wade Davis just gave up back to back HR's. Cubs down 10-8. This game has been going on for 6 hours. Looks like it's over. Brewers did win today and took 2 of 3 from the Cards so if this holds, Brewers would be 1.5 back (still 3 in the loss column). Cards would remain 4.5 back. Cards crapped the bed vs the Brewers in that 3 game set. I thought they would actually take 2 of 3 from them like the Cubs did.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
