Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

UGH! Montgomery to the DL and Chatwood to start in his place.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

The Cubs have the best record in the National League and are probably going to finish with their second-best record over the past 4 years and have reached the NLCS in the previous three. They will also, barring a major collapse, reach the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season for the first tim...

2015 69-51 2016 77-43 2017 63-57 2018 70-50 6-4 through 10 again and a season high 20 games over. Really great to see Lester look so good tonight and the bullpen does it again, closing the game out. Even Wilson got a big out for the Cubs yesterday. Really looking forward to seeing Hamels pitch again...

Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

The Cards are making a big push since changing managers. The Brewers now have as many losses as the Cards. This makes the Cubs’magic number the same for both teams (39). They were 47-46 when he was fired. They are now 66-55 after the 8 straight wins against very weak teams in Miami and KC plus a va...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Overused bullpen. Poorly played Cubs. Oh, I might add that Angel Hernandez is just about the worst umpire in all of baseball. Period. Could of been their worst game of the year. Lester walks the pitcher who wasn’t even interested in swinging, later that inning Almora decides to dive for a ball that...

Re: Urban Meyer

I think it's completely and utterly tone deaf the way the program and school handled this, especially in the wake of Penn State. To state this isn't on the head coach is just flat out irresponsible. When you are leading a major college athletics program, in a sense, you are a cult leader. People ci...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

If this part is true the Cubs had to take a shot at this. Earlier today, Sherman reported that the Cubs were willing to take on about $4MM of the roughly $14MM still owed to Hamels ($7.98MM of his $22.5MM salary plus at least a $6MM buyout on next season’s $20MM club option). Sherman and others have...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

This was just posted. The Cubs and Rangers are in agreement on a trade that will send Cole Hamels from Texas to Chicago, reports Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News (via Twitter). Multiple reports had indicated that the two sides were making progress on a deal, as was first indicated by Joel Sherm...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

Many, many rumors out there that Hamels will be a Cub before the night is done. Not that I agree with this but I’m guessing they move Monty back to the bullpen and keep Chatwood in the rotation. Hopefully they can get a couple good months out of Hamels if this deal happens. It also sounds like the ...

France’s goals involved offsides and a penalty that should not have been given.
Are you talking about the 2nd goal by France? That was 100% a hand ball.

Re: Cubs

The current years record would be an A+, non-complainable, in most years. It only seems to be non-acceptable because of 2 factors: 1) Brewers have a better record 2) The Cubs Starters give up too many early runs, putting pressure on the hitters to always come back in the game. There are numerous ga...

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

The next 3 weeks is a big stretch of games for the Cubs. With 14 out of the next 17 on the road, the Cubs really need to stay close to where they are in the standings when it is done. If they finish the trip leading the division, they should be able to slowly pull away from the competition. If they ...

Nice 10 game stretch since my last post. 8-2 and playing really well. What is surprising is how many people doubted this team and they can only get better. The Cubs as of now own the best record in the NL percentage wise. After the Pittsburgh series the Cubs are on the road for 14 of 17 games, so if...

With the departure of Jordy Nelson, one would have thought Calvin Ridley would have been their pick. I’m glad as a Bear fan that he went elsewhere.
