Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Illini beat Brock and Sun Devils 17-14. I was at that game.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

It all comes down to Nagy not trusting his qb to win the game. Simply no guts. You can’t let the kicker decide the game.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

That was a terrible series going for a 54 yard field goal. Nagy would not trust Mitch to win the game.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Howard wants to be part of the offense, but can’t even hold onto the ball at the goal line without anyone getting a hand on him. Some things never change.

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Makes no difference who Miami starts, we still have an ineffective Mitch Trubisky. So which one will show up? No one knows. Play calling is just awful against a bad Miami team.

MLB Series

Watching the Brewers at home against LA. Although hard to watch, it was the moves the Brewers made and Cubs didn’t to get them past us. Hopefully we won’t be complacent next year and play every game as if they all mattered.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

The first half, Cubs batter .265 tops in NL. That was Chili Davis. Not sure why these hitters couldn’t hit second half, but not all blame goes to Davis IMO. Joe puts the lineup out every day, so Chili was just a scapegoat whether others like it or not.

Re: Washington @ Metamora

The game I remember was a playoff game, perhaps against Cahokia or O’Fallon at Malone. GBG marched the mayor of the visitors out onto the field pre game! They had met by chance at Casey’s. I can’t make a story up like that.

Re: Washington @ Metamora

With only a few days before the big game, can anyone of the Redbird fans tell me when was the last time the Redbirds played a game like this one. I can recall some past playoff games that I attended, but don’t recall one where they are undefeated and conference title and state ranking are on the line.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Off season will be interesting. Russell had trade value when Machado was available. As did Schwarber. IMO they will stay for no other reason than little trade value. In addition the Cubs may not be willing to go and spend money in the off season, based on what happened with Darvish, Chatwood and Mor...

Re: Luke

I sat next to Luuk at the dinner last night. He mentioned “broken femur”. He also said that he is not allowed to shoot around or anything for at least a couple weeks. Also sat and talked with Ari, man is he a big guy. Can’t wait to see him on court. Makes Child’s look like a small forward. My grands...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

I also think that Joe will stay, but with only one year left the Angels could make a push for him. Then Girardi could be in the picture. Don’t see that scenario playing out, but who knows anymore.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Listening to Chicago Sports today, many are calling for Joe’s firing. This is not all Joe’s doing. I would say using Morrow when you have a 5 run lead or letting Strop hit, then losing him is on Joe, but players not performing is not his issue. Also a lot of talk that Bryant’s issue is “mental”, and...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

There are lots of things to address this off season. If you look back, Brewers went out and got Cain and Yelich to go 1-2 in their lineup. We missed out on both because we were sure that Happ and Schwarber would have breakout seasons. That unfortunately didnt happen. I am not sure how many changes w...

Tough decision, but we need a run. It is a run or done. Dang, first pitch swings just killed us again.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

I am still somewhat surprised that he chose Mills over Edwards. However he did give Carl several chances in key situations lately and he just can’t throw strikes. Might just be a wake up call.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

I am not trashing the Cubs. And I know that the season is not over. But I am frustrated with an offense that is so inconsistent and the fact that little things such as Bryant not guarding the line in the 8th lead to the lead run. I noticed that, but didn’t see the baseball experts say anything. That...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Yep. 10 one day 1 the next. 31 games lost in which we have scored one run or less. Inept offense, especially second half.
