Friendly Reminder From TigerTown 

kid president everything is going to be okay GIF by SoulPancake

After winning the WS in 2016 everything to me is actually gravy now. We got the ring and snapped the jinx. The haters can't say anything now so it is all good. Of course I do not enjoy seeing the team struggle as a diehard fan but it happens :thmup:

Baseball has always been a bridge sport for me and depending on what happens this weekend it could be even less from now on

Baseball is the toughest sport to repeat as Champions and it is very tough to even make the playoffs 2 years in a row. Cubs have made the playoffs 4 straight years from 2015-2018 and won a WS Championship in 2016 = a great run. So if they do have a bad season so be it. The mighty Cards have missed the playoffs 3 years in a row, Whitesox are a dump haha. I am content and happy and just going with the flow now days. Just very thankful we won in 2016 because when you get to the WS, no guarantee you will get back. Look at the Indians. Look at the Dodgers who can't get over the hump in this era. 2 teams that haven't won a ring in decades that are very good but no ring. Bragging rights = RING.

 

-Yankees haven't won a WS since 2009.

-Last team to repeat as WS Champions are the Yankees in 2000.

Here is how tough it is to win a WS Championship. Last time these teams won it all were:

Cards 2011

Yankees 2009

Phillies 2008

White Sox 2005 LOL

Reds 1990 

A's 1989
Dodgers 1988

Mets 1986

Pirates 1979

Indians 1948

-all notably solid franchises and the one's in bold are talked about the most and most successful. Cubs just won 1 in 2016. By the way the Brewers have never won 1 in franchise history will ferrell lol GIF

San Diego is starting the season pretty strong. I hope the Cards can stop that.
I hope the St. Louis crowd gives Fernando Tatis Jr a good ovation since his dad was a Cardinal. I remember him hitting the 2 grand slams in one inning in 1999. He had a great year. Batted .298 with 31 doubles, 34 HR's, OPB of .404.
Tatis Jr is going to be real good. I watched him 2 years ago playing for a local minor league affiliate of the Padres. The Fort Wayne Tin Caps. He was great.

I remember his father playing for the Cards. He was a pretty good player. His son is or was the #1 baseball prospect. The Padres have something like 10 top 100 prospects. They will be a contender for the playoffs for years to come.

I seen it, it did not even bother me. I am used to it from him :funny:. You are right though, last I looked this a sports website and I love the history of the game and following sports is technically a hobby. No big deal :thmup:

Funny how much sports can unite us or tear us apart. I'm the only Mets fan here. I'm the only Vikings fan here. Thankfully, folks are generally nice to me.

 

Did you hear about another person getting beaten at Dodger Stadium? Someone is hospitalized after some fans beat him. What's wrong with those fans? I have always felt safe when I go to games. I have been to close to 100. There were several when I went alone and at night. I never feared for my safety. I would not go alone to Dodger Stadium.

I hear ya, I just love posting history stuff about the game and what teams and players have accomplished. It may be redundant to some but this what the forum is for right? I am very proud of what the Cubs have accomplished this decade, hence the posts :thmup:

Congrats on the ND win last night. Beating UCONN is always huge.

What does that mean? Is Crip a name of a gang? Sounds familiar but I don't follow gangs. Lol 

 

But these don't seem to be gang-related. These seem to be opposing fans fighting with each other.

I did not realize they won. I noticed UConn up by something like 8 with a few minutes left. I assumed UConn would win. Didn't ND win last year too?

Crips are a Gang

    There have been several occasions of innocents being attacked because of what they wear

     Rivalries can be bad too

         Princeton had an Series end with a rival for 30+ years after a fight between fan bases at mid court

One reason why I only went to home games when I went to Colts games was because I felt safe. I went to around 50 games in my time from 1984-2013, last game I went too was the Texans game in 2013 and we stomped them. Anymore I just enjoy watching at home and not messing with crowds of people. I did go to 1 Colts road game, that at Chicago in 2004. I went with 3 other guys and 2 of them played O.Line for Ben Davis when I was in school lmao . Nobody was messing with us :thmup:. Colts won big that day but the Bears fans around us were actually cool.

Former Cubs and Mets relief pitcher Turk Wendell is at CitiField. Mets are bringing in many Mets alums. He is being interviewed now. And we hit a HR. 1-0 Mets in the top of 5th. :cheer2:

 

Turk was so popular here in NY. He was great with the fans. 

 

Now they're talking about Pat Mahomes, Jr., QB of the Chiefs. His father Pat Mahomes, Sr pitched for the Mets when Turk was there. I think Jr. is a Mets fan.

Actually, as snarky as it may have sounded, I meant it. I suppose I should have said 'another' hobby, though.

 

For someone who's obviously, and deservedly, proud that their team 'recently' won the WS, he's awfully insecure about what fans of other teams (White Sox & Brewers) think of the Cubs. It makes for a really bad read.

 

If he doesn't like what other fans think of the Cubs, he shouldn't go to their forums.

 

He can talk baseball all he wants. I just take issue when he feels the need to take childish swipes at other teams, and yes, even though his swipes aren't at mine.

I thought you were just joking with him at first, Geez.......

Its not childish swipes, it’s called friendly banter, ribbing, trash talk. A lot of fans do it.........and he always gives credit where credit is due. Just like you mention he doesn’t have to go on thier forums or read thier comments, you don’t have to read his posts if it gets your underwear in such a knot. Also noticed no one else seems to have a problem with it. Oh and btw, with social media the way it is, you no longer have to go to thier forums to see what they are saying, sometimes they bombard the Cubs/Colts sites with trash talk.

 

Speaking of Crips......

I'm not sure what your second sentence refers to, so if you'd clarify, thanks.

 

Regarding the White Sox thing, regardless. The White Sox won a WS recently also. Why the jab at them just 'cause it wasn't as recent as the Cubs? I'd guess he's taking a jab at someone not even on this forum(?). The Cubs won more recently. Why would he take guff from a White Sox fan, and feel the need to take the jab. He comes off as petty, and insecure.

 

Or is this a trash talk thing. Which, BTW, changes nothing in my mind.

I don't want to block him. I enjoy some of his posts in other forums, but I know of no way to block him just in the baseball forum.

 

Trash talk, you can keep.

Friendly banter? Ribbing? Who's he ribbing? There's on White Sox fan here who doesn't post much, and zero Brewers fans. Seems more like pounding his chest to himself.

    • I hate this...the Hot Stove period was off to a great start.  Manfred and the owners didn't have to impose the lockout, but did so for leverage, as they claim.   Hope the two sides can get this worked out to avoid any delay to spring training or the season.
    • Now whose reaching?  Lol.   I think you’re just arguing to argue.      again.  Manning would have checked out if run plays to a pass play if there were 8 in the box but maybe he hasn’t watched as much football as you.  
    • I honestly do not see us winning out.
    • Let me expand on this. The scheme we run on Defense requires good communication. Prolly more than anyother scheme. Especially in the secondary. With the injuries every week it's like someone new in your ear. Communication is worse with new players. Maybe why Senejo is starting instead of someone else. Willis will come back Defense will be better but not by his talent but the way he communicates.
    • Well there are many more scenarios than the ones listed.   For starters, number 1 is a gurantee to happen if we win out. The Bills and the Pats have 2 head to heads left on the schedule, so either the Bills lose 2 or the Pats lose the 1 additional game. No matter what happens, that is a given. We would also hold the tiebreaker over both teams due to head to head.   As for the rest of it, there are a bunch of games that are guaranteed to help us no matter who wins, and a handful of others that are very likely to help us.   12-5 Bengals vs. Chargers*; Broncos vs. Chiefs*   12-6 Bills vs. *   12-12 Raiders vs. Chiefs*   12-16 Chiefs vs. Chargers*   12-19 Bengals vs. Broncos*   12-26 Raiders vs. Broncos*; Bengals vs. Ravens; Patriots vs. Bills*   1-2 Broncos vs. Chargers*; Bengals vs. Chiefs*   1-9 Chargers vs. Raiders*; Broncos vs. Chiefs*     I mean you can just tell by looking at those games left on the schedule that there is no way at least 2 more of those things DON'T happen.   And most likely, the Chiefs will do most of the heavy lifting for us.   I put a star next to the games that are guaranteed to help us by giving one of the teams on the list a loss.    #1 is a given, as already laid out.   #3 is also a given. Because for the Raiders to win the rest of their games that means #'s 4 & 5 are down to 1 loss needed for each team to ensure we finish ahead. So what are the odds that both those teams win all the other games left on their schedules? Especially considering they play each other on Jan 2nd?   0%.   So thats 2 of the 3 right there.   The Bengals also have games left against the Chargers, Broncos, Ravens and Chiefs. Id say there is at least a descent chance they lose 3 more games. And even if they dont, they likely beat the Chargers or the Broncos to prevent that and give us our much needed 3rd shoe to fall.   But even if that 3rd shoe doesnt fall, there is likely another way.    You could also look at the Chiefs schedule and see that either they end of the season on fire and give us all the help we need, or they stumble, lose the division and likely fall below us in the standings as I believe we would also have the tie breaker on them with only 3 conference losses.   And, in fact if we win out we are gonna have the tie breaker on all of these teams due to conference record if I am not mistaken.   I actually think 4 of those things happen. I think we finish ahead of the Chargers, Broncos, Raiders AND Pats.......IF we win out of course. And I will be optimistic and believe we will.   I think it will ultimately be.....   Ravens Chiefs Patriots Titans Colts Bengals Chargers   ......in that order.
