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

Great stuff! We need to win because last I looked the Cards were up 4-0 over RedSox. Brewers won today as well.

Cubs still up 6-4 going to the Bottom of the 7th. Just need 6 more outs. Cards lost 5-4, so a win here puts us up 2.5 over the Cards. Brewers catching fire again though, won their 4th straight so they will be only 1.5 back if Cubs do indeed hang on here. These 3 teams = Cubs, Cards, and Brewers are so inconsistent! They sometimes win 4 or 5 in a row then lose 4 or 5 in a row. Tough to figure these teams out :dunno:

What is up with the Umps and Zobrist, that ticked Maddon off! God glad we won this game, this is one game had we lost I would've really been mad about. Huge win too. Up 1.5 over Brewers and 2.5 over Cards now.

IDK, maybe there's a hit out on him with all umps after he called them out over blown calls, lol!  The Ump that he got into it with during the Diamondbacks series, Mark Wegner, actually admitted to Madden the next day that he got the call wrong and apologized. Man Madden was furious after this one, called it "asinine!"

Holy cow! I was listening to game on radio, wasn't able to watch.....just watched the ejection online...dang, he WENT OFF!!!!!!! They're saying he could get suspended for making contact with the umps! lol!!! Man I love that guy, he puts it all out there and isn't afraid to take one for the team!!!!!

Honestly I am more into Baseball right now than I am even Football, Playoffs are right around the corner and the Colts cant even field players that can stay healthy. If you cant stay healthy in your early 20's that isn't good RYAN KELLY. Oh well, Go Cubs. My World Champion Cubs have players that play injured like Bryant has, Rizzo has, etc.. I am leaning toward Baseball being my favorite sport which Football always has been, Basketball and Baseball I have always swayed between the 2. Been a Colts fan since 1984 but also been a Cubs fan since 1984 - sweet coincidence right! I have been a Pacers fan since the late 70's but the NBA Playoffs stink now days.

9-9!!!!!!

Damn man, I was listening to it on my way home from South Dayton (Im an hour North).  I started listening when they batted around and went up 8-0.  I gave up but kept listening and stopped around the time Happ homered, maybe 1/2 inning more.  Just checked in....................

I CANT BELIEVE IT IS TIED      :monkeydance:

Donte, Philip, Hooker, dot dot dot- etc etc etc.... same lump of crap every freakin year.  Get your * on the field

 

And no, you are just frustrated and worn with injuries holding back our Colts like a lot of us are.  It sucks, but it will get better.  It will get better because Ballard will build our team with quality backups once he has his starters in place.  THEN when someone really good goes down it isn't such a drop-off in talent that we can still win.

It does get old though.  And the guys thinking they will sit out over bumps and bruises may find themselves moving on down the road.  I don't think there is going to be a lot of tolerance for missing time over typical to moderate injuries.... at least that is the feeling I am getting.

Maybe Lester partied last night because he sucked.

LOL

Has to be.  Pitching has been nothing short of lackluster all year.  It is hard to believe that the SAME guys were so damn good last year..... could say the same about hitting too.

 

I saw your post the other day about runners left on base and that is absolutely the difference (offensively) this year.  So add the LOB % and mediocre pitching and you get what we have been seeing lately.  

 

Real head scratcher how it can turn around in one year and stay that way.  I get a "slump" but that isn't what this is.

Well I can say this, at least I am off work tonight, I put almost 70 hours in this week. Off until Sunday actually, going in that day for a few hours. Cubs are going to lose this one I can tell but they are still in 1st. The inconsistencies are really asinine to use a Maddon term!

What do you do for a living?  If you don't want to disclose that information it won't hurt my feelings (can always PM).... just curious.

I work for a pretty big company, deal with a lot of semi trucks/inventory of semi trucks, and help with Security issues as well, some IT stuff too dealing with computer issues. I cant give out INFO where I actually work but that is the details of it. I am still able to Post here a lot because I have downtime at work (at night more) that allows that. When I get busy though it's stressful. My hours are all over the place, I work days and nights.

Cards won 11 - 7 and  CBE I hear ya Brother nights 12 hour ones in the heat and humidity takes it out of this Ole Boy .

Where I am at Mornings/Afternoons are a killer regarding truck volume, then with the sun/heat it is bad. I like nights much better, it's cool out and I don't have to deal with management. I am basically a supervisor but not in upper management. I get along with everyone but don't always agree with what they are doing and it's stressful.
