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

Freakin Rondon, our Bullpen is very suspect. 1 strike away from victory and the guy gives up a 3 run HR to Garner of all people. A game the Cubs should've had in the bag. Hey Princeton, that is why I miss Chapman, our Bullpen is a joke.

Still do not want to pay for AC it wasn't the bullpen it was Rondon

Come on man, he gave up a 3 run HR and just needed 1 strike to end the game. This would've been a huge win, he blew it plain and simple.

I am not defending HR just stating it was one player not the entire bullpen 

 

Reminder: 

 Wade Davis had pitched the last 3 days and was unavailable

@2006Coltsbestever Everything Will Be Okay

Yeah I am ok but Rondon can go suck an egg :sarcasm:. Anyway I had to do some massive research and found out Bud Selig actually changed the rule for Post Season games regarding rain outs. In a Post Season game, 9 Innings have to be completed regardless even if it continues the next day. So if a team scores 10 runs in the 1st Inning and leads 10-0 and the rains come pouring in in the 3rd Inning and it gets suspended, the score remains 10-0 and play resumes the next day in the 3rd Inning. That is great to know, that rule change took place in 2011 and I had no idea that it did. In the Regular Season 5 Innings still need to be completed though otherwise it is wiped from the books. No bigge there, the Playoffs is the main thing. It would suck if your team was up 10-0 in Game 1 of the WS and it got called in the 3rd Inning because of rain haha and they started from scratch but under the new rules not the case. Excellent rule change! Now we need to change the rule of HFA being determined by the winner of the All-Star game.

Yankees had plenty of opportunities to put runs on the board earlier in the game & ran themselves out of innings. Their defense was less than stellar yesterday as well. 

 

Almost got shut out for the first time this season before Gardner launched one in the 9th.

 

It really must have been like pouring salt on a wound seeing Chapman close it out.

 

Let's see how it unfolds today.

Not for me AC was a pure rental what would have really hurt would have been if Castro had hit the HR

Yankees are playing well. And they are doing it mostly with young players. I like that. I would never have been a fan of the Yankees teams that traded away future very good to great players like Fred McGriff and Jay Buhner, both prospects in their farm system back in the day. McGriff ended up having a borderline Hall of Fame career. 

 

Things are different with the Yankees now.

 

Btw, congratulations on finally being named a "Senior Member". (It just means that you have over 1000 posts.)

Yeah congrats on the win, that was a tough one to take. Cubs played beautifully the whole game up until 2 outs in the 9th. Gardner smashed one out, I knew at that point you guys would win because Chap was coming in.

@Jay Kirk how is life on the Wabash

 

 It is not real nice down here along the Patoka, Wabash, White and Ohio

Every things flooded PT wasn't any way it couldn't be , what we have probably had 10 inches of rain in 2 weeks some areas down south close to you have had 13 or 14 . Its definitely not good hope we get some Sunshine for a few days and dry some up . I feel for families that have or will be devastated by this.

There goes a wasted start by Hendricks, excellent outings by Duensing and Strop and wonderful D

Leake had the same thing happen pitched a gem had a 4-0 lead leaving in the 7th and loses game its devastating for moral. In his last start.

It is bad down here and the sad thing it will only get worse when the water gets here from points North and East

Cards end up winning 10 -0 last night Bats are alive even in absence of Fowler and Piscotty . Pham looked good . Several Cards are at or above 300 avg . Now others are heading that way. If they would just move Wainwright to the pen lol . Lance Lynn was very good again hes heading towards being a stellar Ace and FA at end of year unless Cards get him to sign .

That is a lot of rain! I pray for the best for everyone. We had torrential downpours yesterday with heavy winds. I can't imagine getting a full week of this. I hope everything is okay with you.

Princeton and Gibson County will get in from the North and South since the White and Patoka are Tributaries of Wabash and the Wabash the same with the Ohio

Yes we are ok , our pond got within a few feet of our back door. If the saturation doesn't recede will end up losing my roses. Have not even started a garden thank God , it would be gone.

    • *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.
    • Gonna be on vacation next week. Sorry
    • As I have probably nothing else to do at weekend, due to "sleepy" covid management over here, I'm in!    To be honest, I would've been in anyway.
