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

Cubs have now won 5 in a row, 48-35 on the season. Once again just a half game out of 1st in the NL Central behind the BrewCrew who are 49-35. Fly the flag Gozer, Cubs defeat the Tigers 5-3. I am going to watch the Postgame show so hopefully I can give you guys an update on Kris Bryant.

I was doing some research and this is the best 4 season stretch that the Cubs have ever had since the merger in 1947 when African Americans were allowed to play in the MLB. Take a look:

 

2015 = 97-65 (Made the NLCS as a Wildcard)

2016 = 103-58 (Won the WS as #1 Seeded Division Champs)

2017 = 92-70 (Made the NLCS as #3 Seeded Division Champs)

2018 = 49-35 so far this season (Currently a Wildcard team) 

Totals: 341-228 59.9% winnings - 4 seasons in a row, win 60% of your games!

3 NLCS Appearances

2 Division Championships

1 WS Appearance

1 WS Championship

 

-It will never get better than this for us Cubs fans so lets not take it for granted. It would be so sweet if we can win at least 1 more WS with our same core group. If it doesn't happen at least we did get 1 during this run. I am just going to kick back and see how 2018 ends up :thmup:.

 

-Here's how clueless some of the Posters are over at ESPN. William Bryant Posted "Let's see what cubs can do against a good ." That was the exact quote but I am sure he meant good team. I would say like go 8-3 vs the Brewers so far :funny:. They have the worst Posters in the world over there. Now days there are only like 10 Posts too on the Game Thread's and if the Cubs lose the same 3 Trolls always pop up. ESPN has went so down hill on their Convo Board that it's a joke. Glad this is here, Thanks Jay.

Just want to point out there wasnt a merger. And technically AA could always play there was no rule just no one would let them do it.

Maybe merger isn't the technical term to use but what is fact is no African Americans played in the MLB until the 1947 Season, so any records or WS wins before that have to have an * by it IMO.

First black player ever to play in the MLB was Jackie Robinson on April 15th, 1947. The 2nd was Larry Doby on July 5th, 1947. A guy by the name of Moses Fleetwood Walker (an African American) played in the 1880's but that wasn't the MLB, it was the American Association.

No one remembers Larry Doby but he started playing in the majors less than 3 months after Jackie Robinson did.

I think Integration is the word you were thinking about.

It means “The Magician.” It can also mean wizard, sorcerer, etc. He definitely makes the impossible happen sometimes, he could be called a thief as well since he lives to steal bases, especially home, lol!

 

Rizzos always got my vote, the dude is a class act, and heck of a player!

Winning streak is over, Cubs lose 3-2. Almost came back, Reds have our number I guess - funniest thing ever. Reds in the end may win the WS LOL. Against us they play like the 98 Yankees, against everyone else they are MEH. It's all good. We are 8-3 vs the Brewers but 3-7 vs the Reds, Baseball sometimes makes little sense.

The comeback kids do it again! It looked bad early on down 7-2 but we pull it out 8-7! We owed the Reds that one as they have been getting every break imaginable against us over the last 2 series. Lester Pitches tomorrow so hopefully we can take the series 2-1.

Cubs about to get 2 of 3 from Reds and pull within a half game of 1st again. Lester on the mound today. Hard to believe the All-Star break is 1 week away. 

 

-Kris Bryant update: Still wont be back for a few days. Joe thinking MVP may be back vs SF sometime this week.
