    Same lineup as last night, hopefully they are as productive. All hands on deck, gonna be a lot of pitching changes and it could be an epic chess match. I’m nervous as hell, I was never like this for the Bulls and Blackhawks titles because they seemed like such a sure thing, but this…this is the Cubs…in the World Series…in Game 7, the last possible baseball game to be played this year!

    Go Cubs!

  2. Nemo Says:

    Why change now? I predict the Cubs lose big tonight. I love to be wrong.

  3. erniesarmy Says:

    I’m not going to predict this one. I predicted Cubs would win WS 4-1. And I predicted the Indians would win game 5. I’m done predicting.

    I’m still steamed about Maddon bringing in Chapman with a 7-2 lead! 3-2 makes sense. He may have just burned out his closer for the biggest game for the Cubs in 108 years! All to “preserve” a 7-2 lead in the seventh. Even if the Cubs win tonight, I still think it was a stupid move.

    I hope, for the sake of the players and all of us die-hard Cub fans, that his dumb move doesn’t come back to bite him tonight.

  4. Nemo Says:

    Fuck Dan Plesac! That tool is on MLB Network’s pregame coverage and he’s a total apologist for Cleveland. Better not hire his sorry ass back when he gets fired from there.

  5. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Okay…I don’t know about pulling Hendricks there. That felt like a panic move. Was feeling very good until that.

  6. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Yup…why pull Hendricks and put Lester in mid-inning? Maddon’s mismanagement just cost them two runs.

  7. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Okay. 12 Outs to go. Joe Maddon, can we please stop making panicked decisions? Hendricks could’ve easily taken that game into the seventh or eighth. Show some faith in your potential Cy Young pitcher. Geez.

  8. Nemo Says:

    That ball 3 call was well over the plate. Called strike 3 would have ended the inning. But way to fucking panic in a game totally under our control!!!!

  9. Pie in the Sky Says:


  10. Nemo Says:

    I so desperately wanted to believe these cubs were not THOSE cubs, but alas, they are.

  11. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Bunt with two strikes. Um, okay? Again, mismanaging by Maddon. Baez is perfectly capable of a sac fly…

    I’m done watching. They can still win but I’m tired of watching Maddon dictating the results. I’m not a Maddon hater but he’s letting his boys down big time. LET THEM PLAY. This is the type of shit where the team will lose confidence in him in future seasons because he has shown ZERO confidence in his players.

  12. erniesarmy Says:

    I said this today at 4: 42 pm: “I hope, for the sake of the players and all of us die-hard Cub fans, that his dumb move doesn’t come back to bite him tonight.”

    Well, what do you know. Four outs away from their first WS in 108 years. All gone in one at bat.

    Maddon may be smarter than Dusty, but not by much. 52 moving into 53 years of this kind of thing. I thought this year would be different. I should have known … these are still the Cubs!

  13. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Doesn’t help that he always uses Chapman with runners on. How many times have we seen him fail with inherited runners? We have other relievers…USE THEM. Or just stick with Lester for that 3rd out. You’re telling me he couldn’t get that out? Come on, Maddon.

    Maddon has put his players in uncomfortable positions for most of the night. They can only overcome so much. I still can’t believe he pulled Hendricks just because he allowed a controversial base-runner. Just fucking dumb.

  14. dvxprime Says:

    Rain delay.

    I’m sorry, I’ve had enough. Going to bed.

  15. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Please, Maddon. Bottom of Inning 10…do the right thing.

  16. genrebuster Says:


  17. Pie in the Sky Says:

    It happened.

    So glad for the players and fans. Maddon too, even if he sucked tonight.

    Congrats to ya’ll here. You’re older than me and have had to deal with a lot more than me at 30. You deserve this moment.

  18. erniesarmy Says:

    I don’t believe what I am about to say… The Chicago Cubs are …

    WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. erniesarmy Says:

    Thanks, Pie, I’ve been waiting for this for 52 years! I have tears in my eyes especially after watching David Ross in his last game go out a champion!

  20. erniesarmy Says:

    Genre, hey buddy, you can put the clock in the garbage! No more “tic – toc – tic – toc” it is over! I hope Fro weighs in soon. He also deserves this.

  21. chucky Says:

    I don’t fucking believe it! They pulled it out. The ends of all my fingers are bleeding where I used to have fingernails.

    Congratulations to the Cubs. I honestly never thought I’d see this day.

  22. Robert Nolting Says:

    even though joe channelled his inner dusty the cubs are the champs….I dont believe it

  23. Robert Nolting Says:
  24. erniesarmy Says:

    These Cubs have proven to me that they are tough minded! They never quit! I quit on them after that home-run, but they didn’t! No more questioning their toughness from me.

  25. Nemo Says:

    HOLY FUCK!!!!!! I’ve waited 43 years for this!!!

    After I wrote my last post, I walked away, but my wife kept watching. After awhile I hear her walking around in the basement and I figured she was getting ready to come up and that the Cubs had lost the game. Then I checked the score on my phone only to see that the Cubs were batting in the 10th. I figured the app just hadn’t updated, but when I turned the game back on, we were trying to rally in the 10th. Just WOW!!! I mean, I totally thought that we had lost. Frustrating we couldn’t put it away in the top of the 10th. Bottom was scary, but none of it matters now!!!!

    No more stupid goat talk! No more dismissing the Cubs because they are the Cubs! No more Bartman talk!! The kids are veterans now. This will come easier next time.

  26. genrebuster Says:

    I’m posting a new thread guys. Please continue the conversation tomorrow.

  27. genrebuster Says:

    and thanks for posting the Harry video Robert….

  28. genrebuster Says:

    Guys, I saw that our leader Fro has posted a new thread, beautifully written…”Awake from my eight-year coma”…

    I added a few words – special thx to Dave for starting things off – and will write more in the days ahead, as time allows.

    I actually cried tonite, but they were tears of joy…

  29. genrebuster Says:

    ernie, pie, nemo, chucky, dvx, jimmy, and the rest of youse….we all doubted this team…but I think we can agree it was worth “hanging in”…Dave, you stayed level-headed through it all and managed to help me keep it on the tracks….thank you, sir!”

    I would enjoy hearing from any “old-timers” and long-time fans who used to frequent the sites… 🙂

  30. Fro Dog Says:

    Hey Genre, there were a bit of tears after the final out from me, too. Like yourself, they were tears of joy. For the first time in my life, I wasn’t sad about this group.

    Dave was probably the only sane one during this whole thing. In fact, Dave is probably the only sane person in our group.

    And old timers are allowed? Are you sure? Fuck. Fine. Yeti, I would text you, but it’s late. Even he’s allowed to post again.

  31. Dave Says:

    Haha!! You thought I was sane, that’s cute. When Chappie gave up the homer in the bottom 8th and we did not score in the top 9th I was nervous, pacing about like a crazy person. The choke was coming, Chappie was gonna give up a walkoff bomb and the home team would win. Believe me I am a realist, an eternal optimist, but yes, a realist. But when Chappie shut’em down in the bottom 9th and I saw Schwarber was leading off for the 10th, I was like yes, the Cubs are going to win the World Series. We will score next inning and Montgomery is gonna come out and throw his funky ass curveballs and end it. Of course Joe threw Carl Edwards JR out there first (He’s good, Fro, I promise you.) and he got two outs before running into issues, but then it was Montgomery. Lets wait until next year, and win another shall we?

  32. genrebuster Says:

    Yes, Dave!
