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

Lester pitching a whale of a game. 120 pitches & he looks pretty fresh. 2-1 going to the bottom of the 7th.

I have feeling you guys may sweep us, after losing Friday I felt like that all weekend. That game Friday was something else. Sometimes you just get those feelings that it isn't your teams series. Everytime the Cubs do something well, the Yankees respond with something better. We will see how these last 3 Innings play out.

Report I'm hearing is he developed a migraine after playing golf the day before & didn't show up to the ball park for yesterday's game.

 

I heard that too but I don't know how much I believe it. If that was the case, I would figure his suspension would start today. The GM said it started yesterday. 

 

I believe there is more to the story.

Lester has kept the Yankee hitters off balance all night. It's gonna come down to the bullpen for sure.

And they bring back Grimm......:wall:

 

I know options are limited, better start shopping.

 

Would you like Harvey? I'll take a couple of your valued prospects.

I'm heading to bed. Goodnight all. If the Yankee bullpen blows this one please don't wake me I'll find out in the morning.

I don't think you have to worry, Chap will probably come in and throw 103 and strike out the side in the 9th lmao

What happened to Harvey? He was Good in 2015 the year you beat the Cubs and went to the World Series. He only 28 years old as well.

 

He had Tommy John surgery. He has not been as dominant since. But he also is not a team guy. He does his own thing. He is too self-centered. The year the Mets won the pennant, his agent was pressuring the Mets to shut him down. Yet, he did not want to get out of that World Series game when the manager tried to replace him. He ended up giving up the lead and we went on to lose the game.

 

I thought we should have traded him when his value was high (last year).

Last year, I proposed that we trade Harvey to the Rangers for one of their top prospects named Joey Gallo.

Boy I hope Rizzo can get out of this funk soon.

 

Grimms the pitcher the Cubs sent to Iowa last week then brought back today due to Andersons injury. Not a fan.

Is he the guy who gave up the 2-run HR? I was not watching closely.

I get where you coming from because you didn't want to sign him long term but without him we don't the WS. He was huge out of the Bullpen.

I root for the current team or those who didn't get to chose not those who did

    • The Colts will have an easier time prying Watson out of Houston than the top pick from the Jags.  
    • Way too early to know.      I mean I could say I want a free agent but we don’t know whose going to be available or what the price tag would be.  With the draft they haven’t had to the combine or whatever the Combine will be this year to really give you an idea of where guys will be drafted.     just too many variables.     what I do know is that Ballard will address it.  So for now that’s good enough for me.
    • I don’t get the rage from the OP.  I don’t think anyone thinks if the Colts bring Jacoby back he’s going to be the long term answer at QB.  At most he’d be a bridge starter to a rookie but even that is unlikely.  If he’s brought back it would be as the back up QB.  It’s also not going to be close to the money he made before.  I also got the impression from Ballard’s presser it seemed like while he likes Jacoby he seemed to be saying it’s unlikely he would be back.   So I guess I don’t think there is much to worry about on this front.  
    • Just to give you an idea of how draft trades work when the Redskins moved up nine spots to pick 26 at the end of the first round it cost them two second rounders.  A first and second aren’t going to get you up high enough to take a QB unless someone majorly slips and if that happens you have to wonder why they are falling that far.  Yes Rodgers slipped but so Johnny Football and Brady Quinn and guys who have careers that turn out like that are far more common for QBs who slip that far in the first round than a guy like Rodgers.  They slip because teams don’t think he’s the guy.     Now with that said I do think that’s what Ballard was talking about when he said it takes a little luck.  He knows for them to get a QB early in the draft someone he really likes is going to have to slip some.  So I wouldn’t rule out him going up to get someone if they slip bit picking at 21 your talking mid first round at the earliest for a first and second.  They aren’t going to jump into the top ten for that.     the closet I can find to that kind of move is the Jets going up 12 picks from 17 to 5 to get Sanchez and it cost them a first, a second, and three players.  Point being it didn’t come cheap and 1st and 2nd alone isn’t going to get you where you want to be to get a stud QB when your picking 21 in all likely hood.
