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 do not like Boras

 

Me neither. That is another reason I wanted Harvey traded. Boras makes ridiculous demands. Rumors had it that he wanted Harvey to sign with the Yankees when he becomes a free agent (for the $$$).

Think I'm going to bed. I sure hope the same thing that happened last night when I went to bed before it was over doesn't happen again.  10-4 Yanks bottom 8th.

 

Good night everyone.

 

I have to go also, as I have to work tomorrow.  I hope the Mets game doesn't go into extras. It is the bottom of the 9th, 1 on and 1 out.

 

Edit: 2 Outs now

I am pretty sure Patoka and Hazleton are still having problems

Another 1-2 inches Wednesday night through Thursday.  A stray thunderstorm Friday...then perfect weather Saturday through Thursday next week.  Pool time this weekend and next.

Truth hurts. :)  They'll warm up.  Cards did :thmup:

Yes they did everyone swinging bat well now , what bothered me more than anything was sloppy play fundamentals. They have it turned around , I think WainWright should go to the pen however hes always been a warm weather pitcher so who knows.

I figured they would be ok, Cubs and Cards both have the ability to reel off 6 or 7 wins in a row at anytime.

Me too. If my team is losing but playing good fundamental baseball, the losses don't bother me as much, especially early on. Baseball has such a long season. Lots of time for a turnaround.

Different lineup for the Cubs. Zobrist is leading off tonight. It seemed to provide a spark. Cubs lead the Rockies 5-0 in the second.

That's more like it!!!!

Finally playing like World Champs, this is fun tonight! Still 5-0, last I looked Cards were losing 5-1 as well. A win puts us back over .500 at 17-16, respectable. We have been playing some real tough opponents lately.

    • Like I said months ago, there's 12 teams OVER the cap.  Bills(right at the cap), Titans and Bears and probably the Vikings, all of which are over the cap by less than 8 million can make easy, painless moves to get back under the cap without disruption to their rosters.  Course, that's not figuring on any signings, including the upcoming draft picks so they will have to be a little bit creative.   Chiefs, Texas, Raider, Rams, Packers and Falcons are between 15 million and 33 million over the cap. Expect some more drastic moves here too, especially with some of the starters,  I see some big time movements there.   However, the Steelers only have 35 players signed and are still  31+ million over so I'm not sure how they are going to do it. So really, they're in the next category   Saints, Eagles- Lets face it, very drastic and full rebuild mode. Even if Brees retires and the Eagles move Wentz, it doesn't help them very much. at 99 million and 52 million over the cap respectively, I see a LOT of their quality players moving. Has too. May not be a super star, but they've got some solid depth and starters that will get some money elesewhere.   As for the rest of the league, there's 6 teams sitting at minimal cap space, almost none after draft picks are figured in. I don't see many drastic moves from those 6. Maybe someone likes 49ers if they restructure someone or something.   That leaves 14 teams to fight over the players those first 12 most likely releases/trade. Tampa's effective cap is just 16.8 million, again, without the rookie reserve set aside. Really, the teams in pretty decent positions to sign their own and possibly pick up a really solid starter cast away or two are really the Bengals, Washington, New England, Indy, the Jets and the Jags. Of all the teams that made it to the post season, we have the most cap space of any of those teams. By far With the most players under contract too.  That part is KEY   I said a while back that I think we see a record number of 1 year prove it type deals where players who normally would be getting record setting contracts, end up with less than they would in a normal year, simply due to the 30 million reduction in cap. it really narrows what teams are going to be able to get in on the action.  Less bidders, with less money, typically results in lower prices. 
    • We have to stop treating Rivers like he is some young pup who is gonna run every play just as Frank calls it.  I believe that a future HoF like Rivers has the ability to audible any and every play depending on a look he gets from the defense.  Frank will defer to Rivers' judgment more often than not.  Frank even stated after the Steelers game that runs were called and Rivers audibled out of them.    Any wonder why Frank went to Jacoby on 2nd & 11 the following week vs the Jags?  Well he told us.  He "really wanted to run the ball right there and put the game away."  Even if they had to use 2nd, 3rd, and 4th down.  Why couldn't he keep Rivers in and run it?  Because he knew Rivers would audible out of some of those runs.  It was his M.O. this season.  Jags, Ravens and Steelers games were all close games we lead in the 2nd halves.  Why would Frank abandon running the ball in those games?  
    • I thought he had a pretty good season all things considered. If there's someone else out there that's better, so be it. By all means, upgrade if possible. But Rivers did what was expected of him this season, and helped get a 7-9 team to 11-5 and back in the playoffs.    If we don't bring Rivers back, I have a feeling it's more due to cap issues than performance. 
    • You understand rivers isn't the play caller....  right?
