    Anyone else think its quite a strategic error to not put Kershaw in front of the home crowd tonight? Make’em pay, boys!

    I would agree, however, Roberts moves have been eerily accurate this whole postseason. So, if I were a Dodger fan (perish the thought!) I would trust this guy’s instincts. He made Dusty look like a fool in that fifth game against Washington. But, I know, that was Dusty this is Maddon.

    Meh. Dodgers are terrible against southpaws this season. A full-rested Kershaw vs Hendricks in Game 6 is actually more preferable than a short-rested Kershaw vs Lester Game 5. I felt like the Cubs needed to win both of Lesters’ starts and I still feel that way. Even more so now.

    Soo…I just came home from Buffalo Wild Wings. Got a prime seat where I could watch the bears and the Cubs at the same time.

    At this writing, the Cubs and Dodgers were a combined 2 for 18 with runners in scoring position. The Cubs got both of them. thank you, God.

    The Cubs really don’t need 10 runs per game and some Kerry Wood throwing 20 Ks every time out. Provided the Cubs can hold on, what they did tonight should be good enough.

    The Bears? Rock motherfucking bottom. The defense couldn’t cover anybody, couldn’t tackle anybody, couldn’t stop committing stupid fucking penalties, and just let Ol’ Discount Double-check and Co. march up and down the field all night long.

    Ten penalties. Ten. This team has no discipline, along with no skills or talent. I thought we made some free agent signings and drafted nine players; how did we end up with the NFL’s worst roster?

    The Bears are now down their third QB after seven games. Took a nine years sack without anybody touching him. Lord help him. Offense tonight isn’t worth the keystrokes right now (just after midnight EST).

    How did this team get three prime time games in the first half of the season (two Monday night games and a Thursday night game)?

    Oh…as if this three hour shitshow wasn’t enough, one of the Bears players got a picture with Rodgers after the game. This show we treat the NFL’s oldest rivalry, by getting a selfie with the QB who just field-stripped your asses on national TV?

    Fro Dog, if you’re reading this, hope it saves you a recap tomorrow.

    …or you can just say, “FUCK DA BEARS FOR 2016.” Same difference.

    Go Cubs Go…for the love of God!

    Cubs got back into ass-whoop mode late in the game. Kershaw has to be perfect on Saturday or the Cubs may win the pennant.

    Chapman….not good.

  7. genrebuster Says:

    Happy for the win.

    dvx: “let Ol’ Discount Double-check and Co.” ROFL!!!!

    Genre: I didn’t like the performance of either Chapman or Strop, and Rondon last night hasn’t thrilled me either. That bullpen is still a concern for me going forward.

    Perhaps its just rust. I don’t know, but that bullpen has to do a better job no matter what the score is!

  9. MadCityMac Says:

    Hey Guys!!! Bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth. Kinda did; haven’t had computer access except for work, until now. Scott, Fro, Jimmy D. and company, it’s good to be back!

  10. genrebuster Says:

    Just in time, Mike…welcome back!!!!

    Jimmy D. hasn’t been around lately, hoping he’ll check in at some point, too. And, I wonder what Captain Kirk has been up to…

  11. genrebuster Says:

    ernie, weren’t the Cubs considering going after Andrew Miller at one time?

  12. Nemo Says:

    Genre, I believe the asking price for Andrew Miller was Schwarber and the Cubs didn’t want to do that. Personally, I think that was a mistake, because I think Schwarber is going to be a one-dimensional player and we have a closer who now royally sucks.

    Well, things look a lot better than they did. Still, we’ve been here before in 2003-with Cubs up 3-2 at home and they had clear pitching advantage then-which they do not now. Also, how is the bullpen going to hold a lead if they are not blowing out the Dodgers?

    My guess would be a close loss Saturday and then a wild game 7 where the Cubs bullpen blows it. I would love nothing more than to be wrong. I exist to be wrong. We shall see.

  13. genrebuster Says:

    “I exist to be wrong”. Ha.

    Perhaps the Cubs blow out Kershaw tonite…is is possible?

    Uh oh…Have I been infected with sheeple syndrome?

    When will the Cubs win it all?

    Too many questions. TICK TOCK.

  14. Dave Says:

    Speaking of Schwarber, he has been activated to the minor leagues for a few rehab starts. It started out as a rumor but was quickly confirmed by local media and the team as well. Should the Cubs win today or tomorrow, the goal is to get him on the WS roster in a likely DH role for the road games. Of course swing timing will be a big issue, but he has been working out since early September to include batting cage time. Secret weapon much?

  15. Dave Says:

    Kershaw getting lit up out there! Over 45 pitches and 3 runs in. Time to step on their throats!
