Yeah I am not sure when he is coming back either. 

 

Hes slated to pitch another game for Iowa tonight I believe, could be back next week.

 

I am visiting family in San Antonio, who have baseball team, the San Antonio Missions, who are a triple A affiliate of the Brewers. Coincidentally, the Iowa Cubs played against them last Tues-Thursday. I was going to try to make the Thursday game but didn’t get back in town on time. Would have been neat to see the Cubs up and comers, but maybe next time.

All I can do is laugh at this point. Hiura homers to win the game, what a joke haha . Our bullpen sucks.

I agree brother. I’m going to have to start tuning out the games while on vacation, putting me in a pretty bad mood lately. Barf. Maybe someday we’ll also get some batters going?!?

We can't close games out on the road for some reason. If we had a 3 run lead heading to the 8th, I would not trust our bullpen. This is a pretty bad loss, they all are at this point of the season. I was in a good mood until this crap happened.

Take a deep breath my friends , you cant win them all. Where would the fun be in it. Life goes on even if we lose .

I hear you brother, it is the way we are losing that bothers me. We have had the lead 8 times heading to the 8th inning this season on the road where we have blown games. Just go 4-4 in those games and we are sitting pretty. All in all we are just 1 game behind the Cards and tied with the Brewers so still a ways to go. I do not trust our bullpen at all right now though.

Fly the flag Hozer we are tied for 1st place in the NL Central again. Standings heading into July 29th are:

 

Cubs 56-49

Cards 56-49

Brewers 56-51 (1 back)

Reds 48-55 (7 back)

Pirates 46-59 (10 back)

 

-We start a 3 game series at St Louis on Tuesday. Let the fun begin. It is crunch time now. 57 games left and August is upon us. 

 

-Following these games today felt like watching playoff games. Teams playing hard and positioning themselves for the final stretch run. Fun stuff.

Cardinals v. Cubs this week in a very meaningful series for both teams.  Going to be fun!

Yeah it is pretty cool that both teams have the same record up to this point. This series will take us into August. I am hoping the Cubs can win at least 1 of these games since it is in St Louis so at worse they will only be 1 game behind after Thursday.

Lots of doom and gloom on the Colts forums, my word!  Never good to hear your starting quarterback is nursing an injury but you have to let things play out, like @PrincetonTigersays....”everything will be OK.”

 

Getting pumped for tonight’s Cubs/Cards game, hoping for a good one and not a blowout in either direction(ok that’s a lie, I’d be fine if the Cubs blew them out,  but I doubt that will happen.) Darvish is pitching, hopefully the good Yu and not the bad Yu. Robel Garcia leading off with Heyward batting second, I like it!

 

Looks like the Cubs  made some moves. Strop to the 10 day IL with neck tightness (not happy if he’s hurt but won’t miss him)and they signed RHP Phelps from the Blue Jays. Don’t know Much about him other than he has an injury history. Are there any more trades left before the deadline???

Yeah some of the posts about Luck on here were really mind boggling. Like calling him soft, a liar, and stupid. That is really uncalled for. He has given us 4 seasons so far where he has been very good to great. You would think after last season, people would learn to have patience and let things play out. Some just do not appreciate Luck and never will but we win a SB they will be the 1st in line to jump around and celebrate. 

 

Regarding the game tonight, so far 0-0 through 2 innings. I would love for the Cubs to win game 1. That would put all the pressure on the Cards being at home to win the last 2.

Phelps is a ND grad and was a starter with the Yankees

Kind of post season nerves feel to this one lol

Yeah these games are usually 1 run games between these 2 teams as you know. Kyle had bases loaded in the 6th but did not come through. Cubs are in trouble now. Both teams pitching has been solid. Yu has only given up 2 runs, I will take that anyday.

    • I think Watson will get some kind of suspension. Zeke got 6 games and was never charged for a criminal crime and that was with 1 girl. I still bet it will be 8 games at worse. I originally predicted 8 games once it came out that no criminal charges would be filed. It could still even be a year. It will be interesting to see how this ends.
    • Don't forget this Sunday's game on Fox 59 at 7:30 pm I think!
    • Im sorry I’m responding a little late….   But I took the time to re-view the 25 minute Luck press conference, and the 25 minute conference from Irsay, Ballard and Reich.    Luck says his final decision was made roughly 10-14 days before the announcement, and the execs say they knew 7-10 days ahead and the week leading up to the game was filled with almost daily conversations.  I don’t know where you got that the front office found out “that day.”    I’ve never seen that claim made by anyone else here, and there’s been plenty of mis-information put out there about Luck.    Also….  Luck didn’t participate in any team activities the entire off-season.   Zero in the Spring.   Zero in training camp.  At the presser Ballard talked about the strange off-season saying Luck ended the 2018 season feeling pretty good, then something happened at the Pro Bowl that no one could pin down.  Ankle sprain?   High ankle sprain? Shin?    No one knew.   So the team knew something was up.     Ultimately, Luck did a bad job at his press conference explaining things, and the media did a poor job of getting enough details to write a good story so people could understand.    But I’d add, that no one in the Colts seems angry with Luck.   Not Irsay, or Ballard, or Reich, or players.   No one.    Yet people here think Luck screwed the team.   A guy driven to do the right thing all his life, and yet fans here are convinced he did the wrong thing.   I confess that disappoints me.   It’s as if people never learned anything about Andrew Luck beyond his wins and losses.  I find that sad….  
    • Like most surface fans? Not sure what kind of shot ur trying to take here but okay. As for the points, there aren't really any intelligble ones to respond to. In both instances Wentz gives the ball to the other team at the very end of the game. In both TEN matchups. Also, in those specific plays there were checkdowns available.    Reich kind of took blame for one, saying he shouldn't of called a TE screen so close to the end zone. But I guess i'm just a surface fan, even though I consistently talk on a colts fan forum, frequent multiple other sites where many people post a plethora of uncensored opinions about the colts, attend games frequently, and I understand football more than most casual people.    I don't sit on the board and pretend to speak some scheme specific terminology, but I know what football looks like. And with that being said, it is easy for anyone to see that Wentz consistently put our defense in bad positions, and tried to play hero ball despite not being very good at it.  As for how that applies to this specific thread; I think having a more sensible QB on the roster will make our Oline look a lot better.    Also, as i've stated multiple times, I do recognize our offensive line had issues. However, that doesn't takeaway the reality of 2sprainz and the type of game he wanted to play, even at the cost of his own team.
