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

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

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.

    • This is my 1st attempt at one of these so far, and I have little information right now, but I'll try and do the best I can. Hoping to crank out 3 of these by the time the draft begins on the 29th.   Round 1.) Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan- I realize we need a LT very badly. However, I believe Darrisaw will go before 21, and Teven Jenkins is more of a RT than a LT. That's why we choose Paye in the 1st. He is by far the best EDGE in the class to me, fits the scheme from what I've seen, and can start immediately on a team that is extremely weak at the position after missing out on re-signing Autry and possibly Houston.    Round 2.) Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame- He may or may not fall to us in the 2nd round, but there will be a OT or two that does fall, and I'll assume for the sake of this mock draft, that he's the guy who falls to us. Eichenberg is solid at everything, just not great. He reminds me of Anthony Costanzo and I think he can start right away for us at LT. This would solidify the line for a long time after we paid Braden and Quenton.   Round 4.) Monty Rice, ILB, Georgia- I haven't studied him a lot yet, but I think he'd make a very good Anthony Walker replacement in the LBer group. EJ Speed and Glasgow aren't good enough to start behind Okereke IMO or start if he goes down due to injury, so that's where Monty Rice comes in.   Round 5.) Bobby Brown, DT, Texas A&M- Excellent run defender that plays well in a 4-3 defense. Very solid scheme fit that can possibly get playing time on running downs. Only downside is he's not a 3 down player, but with Buckner and Grover starting, it really shouldn't matter.   Round 6.) Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin- He is more of a slot corner than anything else, but he can play any scheme. Only played two games last year due to injury, but that's why he fell. Very intelligent player that has room to improve, and with Rhodes and Carrie under 1 year contracts, they'll be no pressure during his first year for him.   Round 7.) Dax Milne, WR, BYU- Dax can play in any scheme and can also play special teams. Solid route runner who can catch the ball. He's very quick and can make big plays.   Let me know what you think below!
    • Thank you! I was very happy to get Wentz as I thought he was the best option available at that point once Stafford was traded for, and the price wasn't too bad. We may get off very easy with Wentz for another decade. I think we'll be in good shape!    Nice seeing you again! I appreciate the kind words!
    • Welcome back, Jared.   You’ve been missed.  And we’ve noticed your absence.   It’s nice to have you back.    I can only speak for myself, but I can’t imagine anyone not forgiving you for any offenses, real or otherwise.   We just want you happy in your life and able to enjoy the Colts! Hopefully there are many better days ahead both for you and your favorite team!      
    • I'm guessing most of you remember me well. I wasn't in a good place a few months ago before I stopped posting on the forum. I probably annoyed some people and made some enemies. For that, I'm sorry. I've had to get away from here for a while, and just spend some time evaluating my life. Been working on my people skills, living life to the fullest, getting comfortable finacially, and just getting right with myself mentally and emotionally.    I have spent a little time here and there looking at FA as it has happened. Same thing with the draft. I have a lot to learn in less than two weeks though. My main focus was improving myself though, and now I think I'm finally back on a stable level where I can communicate at a normal level with people again. I'm ready to have fun again. We have a possible new franchise QB with Carson Wentz, most of our team is still intact, and we have some new depth on the trenches with less than two weeks to go before the draft.   To the Mods, I apologize for my behavior the last couple months before I stopped posting. I wasn't in the right frame of mind at all. I needed some help. I even created another account to try and eliminate myself and just start over so the problem wouldn't exist and everyone would forget about me. I'm sorry for doing that too. I'm going to do my very best to be a great poster from now on, and I can't wait to start chatting with everyone again. No matter how well I got along with each and every one of you or not. All I ask is a 2nd chance.   Thanks for reading this, and I'll see you guys on the forums!   ~Jared
