Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

That was an ugly inning after a promising start. Sometimes Happ tries to become the big man instead of taking the walk like a lead off man should. Bryant has bright spots then he goes back to going after pitches in the dirt. Team needs to be better than that.

I believe that Ian Happ has now struck out 8 consecutive at bats.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

I am not sure how much longer the Cubs can go with a 2 man pitching rotation. I don’t count on Lester anymore. Apparently our farm system was depleted of quality pitchers the passed few years both starting and relief. Even with 15 games remaining this team has not consistently hit or pitched to put ...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

Two things about the loss. You cannot start Almora, batting .167 he struck out twice with one out and runner on third. Looked bad on every pitch. And two, give the ball to Jefferess with game on line. Forget Kimbrel was ever a closer, period. Rossi didn’t manage that game well, turning a sure win in...

Any auditions for the bullpen? I know it’s a short season, but they have been bad since day one. Imploded again tonight.

Re: NASCAR 2020

It is probably better without fans at this point. Think they would be tired of Hamlin and Harvick dominating the races this year. There really haven’t been many exciting finishes. Although commentators really have been pushing for Jimmie Johnson to get into playoffs. He will have to do it on his own...

See where Big Ten players now want a season. Wasn’t it Big Ten players who demanded certain things before taking the field?? At least that was what I thought. If so they kinda messed up themselves. And apparently AD’s had no input into the decision? According to media, Chancellors and Presidents mad...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

Season is about a third over and honestly I just don’t watch a lot of it. Not exciting without fans present. As a fan, canned and piped in noise doesn’t do much for me. There will always be asterisks for this season.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

Cubs with best record in baseball, but Schwarber is striking out at better than a 40% clip. He still can’t catch up to a 95 mph and constantly swings at bad pitches. Regressing to say the least.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

IMO Kimbrel isn’t missing zone that much. If he can just locate his pitches he should be fine. Still throwing 95-97. I am concerned about Schwarber bat.He is striking out at a 35% clip and his bat speed is not catching up to a low 90 mph fastball. Definitely a concern.

Re: IHSA Announces New Schedule for 2020-21 Sports

What a cluster. The IDPH was suppose to take the lead, yet it appears the IHSA had to wait and follow Gov Pritzker and his guidelines. No offense, but what does his office know about scheduling sports. Nothing, and reading the PJS take it has only added to the confusion. Like, who’s on first?!

Re: 2020 MVC Recruits and Transfers

Not surprising. A streak shooter that plays no defense won’t make it in the NBA. NIU will have scorers however, as one of the freshman coming in is another Greene. Interesting conference matchups this year, if we play.

My only question is why the IESA went and took everything away in the fall. Same sports, different decisions. Don’t understand that at all. The kids will miss out jr high, then go directly into high school.

Re: IESA Cancels Fall Sports

Great read in PJS today. It is really hard to fathom that the IESA looked for guidance from Governor’s office and the IDPH, but got virtually no help. On the other hand, it said “emailed” them. A decision that affects so many and they emailed. And Blue, I do apologize for the remarks about referenci...
