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

Cubs win! After starting 2-7, the Cubs are now 19-12 and in 1st place in the NL Central. 7 wins a row and a sweep. Fly that flag Hozer.

I won’t boast much more after this win out of respect for my good friend Jay.....I am proud of the Cubs for the way they have played, especially winning so convincingly today after 4 errors!!! And Bryant with a grand slam! Hope that was the spark he’s been missing!!! BRING ON THE MARLINS!!!!!

Yeah I can not believe we swept them, @Jay Kirk knows how much I respect the Cards. Cards are loaded but we are red hot right now and just caught them at the right time. Coming into this, a sweep didn't even enter my mind. I was thinking 2 of 3 because of being at Wrigley at best.

Seems like I remember some writing off Maddon and the Cubs

Many did early on but it is such a long season that to write a team off after 10 games is plain silly. I still think the Cards have the most talent in the division after picking up Goldschmidt and the Brewers are a very good team as well. As @Jay Kirk would say, Baseball doesn't really start until June. April and May are a feeling out process more than anything. In a 162 game season anything can happen because it is so long. Teams go on losing streaks and go on hot streaks. That is Baseball. I am still very concerned that Yu Darvish may not pan out and that is a major worry.

Ironically June is when baseball ends for me

In the NL before the season started I had the Cards winning the NL Central, Dodgers winning the NL West, and the Braves winning the NL East. My 2 wildcard teams were the Cubs and the Brewers. Braves are only 1.5 back of the Phillies in the East as of now but are right there. All the teams I picked to make the playoffs are above .500 so far so we will see.

Games like last night will come back and haunt the Cubs in September and October. You've got to win that game. I know it is still very early in  the season but man we should've won that last night! Very disappointed with that loss. Today is a new day though and a chance to start a new winning streak!

What happened?

 

Cubs went from sweeping the best team in the National, to losing to the last place team....Strop had some control issues again and loaded them up, then our newcomer had a brain fart......

 

Cubs closer Pedro Strop lost his control, and then Kyle Ryan had a brain cramp on a comebacker.

The Miami Marlins, with the worst record in the majors, found a wild way to win against previously red-hot Chicago.

Games like these happen unfortunately. Games you should never lose and we did blow it last night but we were due for a loss. I had us winning this series 3-1 so we still can if we win the next 3. I am glad to see Bryant out of his slump, he hit a huge HR last night in the 9th inning. We will rebound and win tonight.

Phillies up 10-1 over the Cards, @NFLfan, Mets lead 1-0 already in the 1st inning. Cubs still tied at 2-2 to the bottom of the 7th.

 

2-0 now. Cano with his 2500th hit. It was a ground rule double and a fan got a valuable souvenir.

He's been on fire lately, I thought he would get a hit to win it but that was awesome! 20-13 now on the season and in 1st place in the NL Central.

 Hopefully watching them play will put a smile on your face and bring back some good memories of him.

Still don’t know how we beat the mighty Cardinals then struggle against this team? Are the Marlins not as bad as their record shows? Hendricks with another great game though, that’s a positive! Let’s see if we can finish this out.:bored:

Baseball is strange like that. Cards lost again tonight by the way. I had us winning this series 3-1 coming in but this game right now looks 50/50.

I hope Rizzo is a lifetime Cub, he is an amazing person and player. Very smart player. Saw Russel is back, lots of Boos tonight. Wonder what’s going on with Zobrist, he took a leave of absence.

Not sure about Big Ben. Maybe a family problem, nobody has said anything.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
