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

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  

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 thought that was the case, how far are most of you guys from STL? @Barry Sears @Myles@Jay Kirk @landrus13

Actually out of those 4 guys, @Myles is the only one that can't stand the Cubs lol. As a Cubs fan I have never really liked the Cards but I don't hate them. I respect them actually. Brewers on the other hand I can't stand, it is their fanbase that is awful. Never won a damn thing and they talk smack lmao

I don't hate the Cubs.  It is more the Cubs fans I work with.  I like that the Cubs/Cardinal rivalry has always been one of respect.

That is how I feel about Brewers fans in general lol. I work with a couple of Cards fans and they are pretty cool. They always bring up their 11 championships to me but it is in good fun. After the Cubs won it all in 2016, I had a Cards fan at work say he was happy for me.

Ya I will be about 15 minutes from Busch now

Wrigley is only about 2 hours 25 minutes away from me. St Louis is about 4 hours from me.

Ya Wrigley right now is about 3 hours from me, next month it ends up being 5, was thinking also as games at Busch have been cheaper even for Cubs/Cards series

I'm about 2.5 hours from STL. I'm right on the Indiana/Illinois border. About 2.5 hours from Cincinnati too. Went to a game in Cincy a few years ago. Beautiful stadium overlooking the Ohio river. Not as beautiful as Busch though. :default_20smile:

Cubs 5-0 tonight to stop the slide..

Was worrying about the O, showed some improvement late.

 Still good D and pitching can prove valuable in the playoffs!

Good to see the team score some runs!

 

GO CUBS GO

CUBS WIN CUBS WIN CUBS WIN 

FLY THE W 

 

I think this win clinches the playoffs

El Mago is for real!!!

 

Just watched some replays of the game tonight and he just keep me shaking my head at what impact he has game after game.

Special Player!

Yeah he may be our best all-around player at this point? I love Bryant but he has struggled all season and has been injured a lot. Bote is more than capable of taking over at 3rd for Bryant if need be. Rizzo is still a huge key to our team as well.

I like Cincy's too. I went there for a couple games a few years ago and felt like it is a good park if you brought kids to, like they had lots of things a Minor League park would have to help keep kids entertained

You guys see the response by Schwarb? After getting pulled yesterday responded with 2 doubles 2 RBIs a run and hustled out his first double. Then we he gotten PR for by Hamilton, grabbed Rossy leg so that he could hug him


Feel bad for him really, he just doesn’t have what it takes to play left field in my opinion...he does have a great arm but just not athletic enough. He was primarily a catcher in college I believe,(IU:yuk:) But also played outfield. Has a heck of a bat though, and a great motivational team player.

Welp, Cubs officially clinched with Philly losing last night....but not overly optimistic about their chances right now. Keep playing like they have been and it’ll be a short stint. 
GoCubsGo!

Yeah we are playing inconsistent offensively. Not sure what to think? I guess we have as good a chance of winning the WS as anyone else. The Dodgers are really the only team that stands out but when it comes to the playoffs, well they choke lmao

If the season ended today

The season does not end today, thankfully, but if it did, the postseason brackets would look like this:

American League
No. 1 Rays vs. No. 8 Blue Jays
No. 2 White Sox vs. No. 7 Cleveland
No. 3 Athletics No. 6 Astros
No. 4 Twins vs. No. 5 Yankees

 

National League
No. 1 Dodgers vs. No. 8 Brewers
No. 2 Braves vs. No. 7 Reds
No. 3 Cubs vs. No. 6 Marlins
No. 4 Padres vs. No. 5 Cardinals

 

Here are the first round matchups if they playoffs started today. Not liking the Cards chances against the Padres. Cubs would potentially play the winner of the Reds/Braves. Cardinals would get winner of Dodgers/Brewers.

I like those matchups for the Cubs, I hope it stays that way.

I mean, he isnt, but he also isnt as bad as all thought. He needs to show up more on national tv, but he also has made some real good plays. His arm saves him a lot too. This biggest issue is go hard every time, you may misplay a ball but go hard

Uninspired baseball once again. :facepalm:

If there is a good twist to this, if we remain in the 3 spot our matchups are real favorable and we avoid the Dodgers or Padres until the NLCS. After tonight we are still 3.5 ahead of the Cards and Reds, 4.5 over the Brewers in the NL Central. Cards have now played 53 games, we have played 56. That is a pretty comfortable lead at this point.

I know I need to be a better fan and be more optimistic, but their offense has been Pitiful lately. They need some kind of spark...maybe they’re paying possum? lol!

I hate the fact we are struggling but we are pretty much locked in at that 3rd spot anyway. We are 32-25 so the most losses we could have are 28. The Reds and Brewers both have already lost 28. There is a small outside shot that the Cards could catch us, they are 27-26 but that is a long shot. They would have to get real hot and we would have to almost lose out.

    • Those three PLUS wide receiver!   Those Big 4 match our four biggest needs. 
    • *Colts re-sign Justin Houston- This may be after the draft but as of now I think he is the best chance to help our pass rush not take a step back unless we want to try Ingram or Clowney.   **I still have hope Ertz could end up available but if not oh well.   Here we go... yep. No trades.   1. Sam Cosmi- LT- The time to replace AC is now. This may not technically be the best valued player available but he's not far off. If we wait until 54 I think there will have been a run on the best remaining OTs. Take a quality athletic LT at 21 and keep the o-line in great shape. Next year we are likely without a 1st, there may not be a better time. We could trade back but that's hard to predict. We would need a great deal to pass on our pick of the litter imo.    2.  Ifeatu Melifonwu- CB- Great fit. Tall, athletic, excels in zone. Not quite as big a need as DE but not far behind. Rhodes only has one year for now and I, like others, would like to see an upgrade over RYS.   4. Elerson Smith- DE- With the need at LT and the lack of value in round two we opt to dig for athletic upside for our pass rush addition. We come up with Smith. He's a bit of a forum favorite and I get why. We can't confidently fix every issue this year imo, but if you can't, at least find some upside.   5. Dazz Newsome‐ WR- We may very well pass up a lot of good value at WR this draft but the good news is some solid prospects are likely to fall into the later rounds. An explosive prospect who can compete with Campbell to replace Hilton as our little guy speedster. Lol   6. Quentin Morris- TE- One of my favorite late round prospects. With this being an average to below average TE class after Pitts, Morris offers some upside to provide us with a move TE down the line.   7. Franklin McCain III- CB- Borrowing again from a pool of forum recommendations. You can't realistically expect late round guys to all be hits but I'm down for investing those final picks in depth we can groom.   Final notes:   - Cosmi and Melifonwu are my favorite no trade 1-2 realistic punch. Value and need matches pretty nicely imo.   -I've seen Newsome graded as a 2nd rounder but most have him at rounds 4-5. He also ran a 4.38 so I might be a bit optimistic about his availability   -I could always do another mock but I don't see my view changing much from now until the 29th.
    • It’s the University of Michigan for goodness sake!    It would be a bigger deal if Dodds wasn’t there!   
    • I'd like to hear the board's thoughts on this topic from more of an outside perspective. From my experience Steelers fans fall into two camps (generally speaking); totally irrational and loyal to the death, highly critical of anything to do with Pittsburgh Football unless it results in a championship (and not always in a rational manner).     Now for my thinking, this issue should have been addressed much sooner, but if nothing else after the disaster that was the 2019 season. You have an aging QB who just blew his elbow out and were starting "junior varsity" replacements. You have been bleeding free agents all off season in 2020 and have lost or watched the decline of key players at LT, C, LB, RB, S, CB and just resigned a WR free agent. Plus, you also need a LG. These stooges are actually suggesting using a 2nd round pick on a QB from college when the decision to do nothing about the QB position has caused half the team to get sent packing because you have next to nothing to spend in free agency.   This is after these same people lauded the Dwayne Haskins singing as a "steal". Pittsburgh literally got him for nothing this year after WFT ate all the "bad" in his contract, a 15th overall pick coming into his 3rd year in the NFL who drastically needed a change of scenery.   I'm convinced that if it was up to Tomlin he would have already moved on. We all know he's a master at coach speak at the podium but he's a completely different guy otherwise. Even at that, he's started to unravel a bit because you can tell he's getting frustrated with some of his more recent public comments. He is no BSer. I get the warm fuzzy feeling we all have when a team is loyal to a player who has been valuable and produced at a high level, but I mean even New England and Indianapolis let Manning and Brady walk after all of their success.   Please tell me in what universe does any of this even make sense? I am confused.
