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

Cards continue to pursue the International market         https://sports.yahoo.com/news/end-cuban-revolution-coming-soon-luis-roberts-signing-014518825.html

 

I hope they can make it happen.    The team is loaded with slightly above average talent, but lacking top 10 talent.   Molina may still be the best on the team, but he is losing a step.

Butler's control is iffy early. 2 walks already! Brew Crew with 2 on in the 1st Inning but now 2 Outs. Throwing way too many Pitches so far though.

Yes he seemed shaky to start in Cards game , but they settled him down. He does have good stuff.

Let's see if the Mets can turn it around before June 1st. We have our best healthy pitcher going today. We scored a run in the 1st and made the opposing pitcher work (26 pitches). It is 1-0 in the top of the 2nd.

 

We need a win tonight. :beg:

Yeah the damn Brew Crew beat my Cubs today! Now 3 back in the NL Central, SMH.

 

The Brew Crew have a very good team. They swept the Mets, scoring what seemed like 100 runs without Ryan Braun. 

 

Did Braun play today? I heard he might be traded to the Dodgers. Why now when they have a good chance to win the division?

In my opinion they have no chance to win the division the bats wont carry them that far , I don't think the pitching overall is not good enough. Just my opinion.

The Mets won 3-0 over the Angels. That is our first shutout since Opening Day when Syndergaard and the bullpen shut out the Braves.

 

Nice to see the manager stick with deGrom in the 7th when he had the bases loaded and no outs. He got the next 3 guys out without giving up a run.

That's something Warren couldn't do tonight.

You may be right. But they can trade for pitching.

I am not a fan of Ryan Braun. I would never want him on my team after what he did to that drug test collector.

    • I think it's more about when to use Hines, or when not too. He has great AVGs on 1st and 2nd down, and doesn't need a FB. He just IMO shouldn't be used in 3rd or 4th and short.   And a FB is always nice in short situations regardless of RB, so IMO it's not really about Hines either.   IIRC MAC got really good run blocking grades. I remember October articles when he was grading out top of the NFL in run blocking. I don't have a PFF sub to see the end of year breakout, but I'm going to bet he ended the year at least top 10 in the category.   As far as FB is concerned in general, I think there are things you can do in short yardage situations that reduce the need for a FB... Now that we don't have Rivers, teams really can't key on things like they did last year anyway. And in short or goal line, we can line up wide, instead of tight like last year. Just lining up wide makes it easier, and you can still use a TE if you want.
    • Well if you want to use a guy like Hines on the rush, you've got to use either a fullback or a 2 TE set, and as much as I like Mac, Mac and Doyle both grade out only somewhat above average as run blockers, and Doyle's been showing his age on the injury front recently so a specialist would be helpful.  If we don't have one, then we need to manage our expectations of little gap shooting RBs like Hines appropriately.
    • Happy Mother's day to all !!! If you are blessed to have your mom still around, you truly are blessed   
    • Godfather 1 and 2 are obviously incredible and probably my favorite movies of all time, just thought his role was too limited and perhaps surrounded by a bunch of other great actors. Kind of like AN. I just thought his AN role and character was off the charts.    When you Pacino, DeNiro, Caan, Duvall, Keaton, Shire, Cazale, plus all the other great but less known actors, it's a bit hard to focus on one guy. Clearly Pacino was the lead throughout the movies, but there was so much greatness all around. AN had great actors too, but just not on the same level. Brando just stood out more to me I guess. My fav Sheen movie too.
    • Hope NFL Shop adds Dayo’s jersey soon.. not on the drop down list yet.   He’ll be the Leonard of this draft, where other teams fans question the pick and then wish they would have grabbed him.   *** Disregard - you can custom one, ORdered!! ***
