Yeah it's real early and I already promised myself I wouldn't let losses bother me in April or May but our division is so good that we need to beat teams like the Rangers. I had us winning 2 of 3 here but we lost 2 of 3. jack nicholson yes GIF  On to Atlanta.

Looks like the Cubs did not get off the plane in Atlanta and are still asleep. 4-0 Braves already. Cubs playing very sloppy so far and Hendricks has no control early. michael scott no GIF

 

I love that gif. One of my favorites.

Dreadful evening for my Cubs. Lose 8-0 to the Braves. Now 1-3 on the season. Very early in the season so no reason to panic. For fun I added up what the Cubs W/L record was for the whole decade so far (2010-2018) and they have a winning record despite struggling from 2010-2014. It has been a very successful decade as a whole so far. The best in Cubs history since integration took place in the 1947 Season. 

 

-Cubs have a W/L record of 738-720 (50.6%) for the decade so far. 

 

-Playoff record of 19-18 (51.4%) and 4 Playoff appearances in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.

 

-1 World Series Championship in 2016.

Even if for some odd reason the Cubs have a bad season, I will still post in here and watch a lot of games. I am not a fairweather Cubs fan and have been through the bad and good with this team since becoming a fan in 1984. The last 4 seasons they have given me as a fan is priceless. I am a diehard fan until the day I die even if they go 70-92. I have been a Cubs fan as long as I have been a Colts fan.

I'm on board.   I hope they do go 70-92.  :thmup:

 

The Cardinals haven't started much better.    They are averaging 12 strikeouts a game through 5 games.   That seems like it should be close to a record of some sorts.

So far I do not like the Cubs vibe but it is so early in the season it is hard to tell what will happen. It looks like the Brewers are for real unfortunately.

Amen brother. They’ve hit rough patches in the last few years but have persevered, I’m not worried. If it turns out to be a bad year then it is what it is,  I’m not going anywhere. Same goes for my Colts!!!! GoCubsGo!!!! GoColtsGo!!!!

It is still basketball season in TigerTown so I am not focused on the Cubs and since I live out of market I rarely watch games

Yes they have , but let me ask the average runs they are putting up ? They will be fine, the pitching will fine tune . They have not even been close to being shutout can you say the same thing this time last year ?

Cubs do not have a legit closer = huge problem. When we won the WS we had Chapman, in 2017 we had Wade Davis. Strop was ok last season but seems to have lost his touch now. Now we have doodoo :funny:. It is what it is, we have won more games over the last 4 years than any other team and won a WS in 2016 so bad stretches happen. I am not in panic mode or anything because it is April 3rd :funny: but I am watching some bad pitching right now going on in Cubs land.

I'm pretty happy with 3-3 with the poor pitching and poor hitting.   The hitting has been timely though.  

Looking at the current batting averages, it's fortunate to be 3-3.    Don't get me wrong, they will come around.   Molina will hit better than .083.

I was talking to a Whitesox fan at work last night and he like many have was mocking the Cubs for not winning it all in 108 years. Whitesox actually went 88 years without winning it all themselves (1917-2005) and haven't won it all since 2005 :funny:. That is almost as bad. At least the Cubs just won the WS in 2016 which is real recent history. Recent history is considered the last 5 years in any sport. Cubs and Whitesox both have 3 WS wins as well if you go by when the MLB started back in 1903. Cubs won the most recent one though in 2016. Whitesox don't have jack on the Cubs as a franchise. kris bryant wink GIF by NBC Sports Chicago

@NorthernBlue and his team shut out my team in the Mets home opener today. :( 

 

Looks like it was a good pitching matchup between Stras and Thor (Noah Syndergaard). Thor gave up his first hit in the 6th, which was a HR. The Nats also manufactured a run without a hit earlier in the game. Stras gave up no runs.

 

Anyway, can't complain too much with their 5-2 record. Their hitting has been much improved, today notwithstanding.

    • That’s not entirely true. Like my post above they’ll be scenarios where Colts can sneak in at the 6th, 7th seed. Currently the Steelers are the 7th seed 3-3. AFCN is going to cannibalize itself. That leaves the Raiders, Colts, Bengals, Browns competing for the last 2 spots. This is if the Colts can’t win the division.
    • You know you're a real cancer on this forum. I dont know if your intention is just to troll or if you are really that pecimistic about everything. I am not sure if i have ever read a single well thought out post by you aside from just arguing and stirring the pot. Thank god I can hide your post from here on out.
    • lol well looks like time to change the name @StartEason
    • The matchups for this week are very intriguing, and also very tough to determine. Lot's of circumstances to be considered, and I'm probably going to be wrong on more than a few of these.    Thursday Night Football BRONCOS 13 vs. Browns 12   Sunday Games PANTHERS 7 vs. Giants 3 Jets 10 vs. PATRIOTS 22 CHIEFS 51 vs. Titans 45 Football Team 24 vs. PACKERS 31 Falcons 7 vs. DOLPHINS 13 BENGALS 31 vs. Ravens 28 Lions 20 vs. RAMS 42 Eagles 18 vs. RAIDERS 24 Texans 9 vs. CARDINALS 41 Bears 14 vs. BUCCANEERS 21 COLTS 19 vs. 49ers 18   Monday Night Football SAINTS 20 vs. Seahawks 13   Browns are without Baker, but the Broncos haven't exactly been inspiring of late. The Panthers and Giants are both trending down so that could go either way. The Falcons seem to find new creative ways to lose each year, so it's not much of a stretch to think Tua could get a win, and the Saints will be facing a WIlson-less Seahawks team.    Last Week 11-3; Overall 58-34
    • Tony Dungy was on the colts podcast yesterday. He had a good perspective on when to go for it on 4th down. He said you have to be aware of what kind of team you have and what kind of team your playing. He said with his Bucs team he was perfectly fine kicking field goals because of their defense. With the colts he said he would of had no problem going for it on first because of Manning and the offense. I think this is the kind of awareness Reich is missing.
