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

Has a team ever made 4 straight NLCS other than the Cards from 2011-2014? If they have I don't remember it? Cards made 4 in a row from 2011-2014, Cubs just made 3 from 2015-2017 so if they make it in 2018 they could match the Cards.

Its a good question , I really doubt it , I was thinking Reds big Red machine but know that's not possible because of the Pirates in the same era and different format for playoffs.

I did some major research Jay. Here are the results - Since the 1947 merger when African Americans were allowed to play, the teams that have made the most NLCS in a row are:

1. Braves from 1995-1999, they made 5 in row. Braves won the WS in 1995.

2. Cardinals from 2011-2014, they made 4 in a row. Cards won the WS in 2011.

-So if the Cubs make it in 2018 they would tie the Cards for 2nd all-time as they have made it from 2015-2017. Cubs won the WS in 2016.

 

- The most the BigRedMachine of the 70's made it in a row was 2 in 1975/1976. Reds won the WS both of those seasons The 80's Mets never even made it 2 years in a row just to bring up other power house teams. Mets of course won the WS in 1986.

The team that came to mind when you originally asked the question was the Dodgers of the 1950s with Snyder, Campanella, Newcombe, etc. They went to the World Series four out of five years from 1952 through 1956. They did not win the pennant in 1954, but I could not find whether they made the NLCS that year. 

 

I can't believe I forgot about the Braves. They were a thorn on the Mets' side for years!

The Dodgers did not make the Playoffs in 1954 to answer your question. Yeah the Braves are easily forgotten because they only won 1 WS and the year they won it was the strike shortened season.

Wow Rockies paying Wade 52 Million? That’s great for him!!!! Can’t see Theo paying that much for a closer. Wonder if we do lose Arrieta if we end up picking up Darvish...

 

Is it Spring yet?????

Not a big Darvish fan. If we sign him and he wins his first 4 or 5 starts I may change my tune. He was bad in the WS. I love Jake so until I see someone pitch like him in a Cub uni, it will be tough for me to say anyone can match him.

I don't think Darvish would fair well long term in Wrigley . I think Jake is more solid with the art of pitching .

I agree. Cubs should quit being stubborn and just give Jake his contract. If Theo is going to give Darvish a boatload of money on a longterm deal, might as well keep Jake who is better suited to pitch in Wrigley.

Does anyone need a MLB Player because the Pirates are having a Fire Sale

 

I know it looks like it because they were big names, but two guys isn't a fire sale.

If it were me, though, we've got a couple more 'up and comers' I wouldn't mind dumping on you unless they pick it up soon.

Who are the 'up and comers' that you are referring to? 

 

Who else besides McCutchen was traded away?

We traded Cole to the Astros a couple of days ago. He's been a bit underwhelming for a supposed 'ace', and we have a couple of good prospects that may be ready to bring up.

 

I'm starting to lose a bit of patience with Marte, and Polanco.

Both have a lot of promise, and are still young, but it's time  each stepped it up a bit. Especially with Cutch gone now.

 

I'll miss Cutch, but it was time.

I will say not much movement in the FA market , with spring training a little over 3 weeks away. Still some good pitchers and position players to be had. NFL congrats to your Vikings

One reason is that players are dragging things out

Still no Jake Arrieta news. I haven't Posted in here lately because nothing big has happened except for McCutchen getting traded to the Giants.

FA market should heat up , time getting short.

The Mets have not done much except sign Jay Bruce who they had traded to the Indians last summer. Most Mets fans, including me, are okay with bringing Bruce back. We also avoided arbitration with many of our young pitchers (Harvey, deGrom, Syndergaard).

 

Baseball has been so far from my mind that I forgot how to spell Syndergaard.lmao

Latest word on Yu Darvish is, the Yankees want him badly and offered him a team friendly contract = 6 years for 120 Mill where Yu gets 30 Mill in the first 2 seasons. I hope this happens because then the Cubs will probably be all in on Jake at that point. Jake is simply the better Pitcher and is clutch when it counts. He is a TrueCub and needs to stay in Wrigley where he dominates.

    • Not sure if we're better, but I think we have more hope. I for one, am just happy we checked the box. And I'm growing more confident it works out.
    • Not sure if it was ever a "character" issue. Sounds more like attitude to me. Purely my opinion, but he's a smart guy, has likely read everything written about him, and knows he needs to embrace this chance. If he chokes at Indy, he's likely done. Hoping he's self aware, and comes in with a fresh perspective and attitude. Regardless, I'm not sure fixing him, is really a monumental task the more I read, and the more I think about things. If his mechanics fell apart in one year, he should be able to fix them in an offseason. Sounds like he just got sloppy, and that was compounded by a lot of external things. Or one could say a lot of external things created a negative situation, and he became sloppy (perhaps stopped caring).   Whatever it is/was, I'm just not near as worried as I once was. Like I said, I think he'll return to at minimum 2019 form, and not sure Reich will have a lot to do with it. I think the freshness (new team, new city) will create a new attitude. And the OL and overall quality of the team in Indy will resonate.   I think I'm back to being more concerned about Reich lol... I don't buy all the QB whisperer stuff. Sure he's had musical chairs to deal with, but overall I credit his conservative scheme more than anything. And that's great when you're working with chaos or musical chairs. Not sure it'll be good enough to go deep once the chaos and musical chairs stop.
    • With some of the stuff that was going on with the Eagles it's not unreasonable of me to think it didn't have an effect on the whole QB/coaches/GM relationships with each other. And none of it being good for the team. Regardless I am not going to point a finger at anybody. I don't care. All I care about is from now forward.  IMO we are a better team right now that we were a few days ago.   
    • I think Reich will turn him around and beleives in him. If Reich had a real issue with his character, I doubt the trade would habe happened.
