The best team in the NL is going to the 2017 World Series.

October 20, 2017

It doesn’t always happen…but no surprise here. NOTHING was easy for the 2017 Chicago Cubs, they never clicked, (as discussed here,  https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-2017-cubs-never-clicked/ )

The Cubs were fortunate to win the division and make the playoffs. It was obvious to anybody who knows baseball that the pitching was suspect. Hitting was all or nothing at all, much of the season.

There will be some big changes next year. I hope they can shore up the bullpen, and IF he returns (unlikely?) get Wade Davis some help, before his arm falls off…ha ha ha ha.

Now that they have won a World Series, it sure feels different (as Fro and I “discussed” recently via text). I’ve enjoyed the success they’ve had these past 3 seasons, and hope they can make it to the post-season a 4th year in a row.

You KNOW that Theo wants another WS ring with the Cubs…………………….

As Dave posted in the previous thread: “Good season for the Cubs. I can’t complain too much, its been a nice 3 years. Just have to fill in the holes like we did after the 2015 season.”

All the Best, my FRENDTS!

Cubs are not looking good…wait ’till next year?

October 17, 2017

Guys…I apologize for not posting more; my plate is pretty full.

Not looking good…Happ just dropped the ball after hitting the wall. The Cubs can’t pitch or hit (again) and I’m not “feeling it”.

That said, somebody has to win 4 before this series is over, which could happen tomorrow…it’s starting to feel like Cubs-Mets (2015).

The floor is yours, my frendts.

p.s. Walks do NOT clog the bases…the Cubs’ bullpen SUCKS.

 

 

Can this ever be easy? Bears 27 Ravens 24

October 15, 2017

Well, when your team has a lead of 17-3 and then, 24-16 at the two-minute warning, there should be no excuse them to blow it. The Bears won this in overtime thanks to a gutsy run by Jordan Howard and a prayer from Trubisky to Wright. Then, hell officially froze over as Connor Barth nailed a 40-yard field goal to win it.

Mitchell Trubisky: He’s doing what he can. The offensive line can’t protect him and receivers cannot get open. The play-calling also needs to be better. The Ravens were prepared for his bootleg runs. He needs to have more plays with him to be in the pocket WITH an option to scramble. Maybe next year when the Bears have another high draft pick, Pace can trade that along with three other picks just to move up one spot and take a wide receiver. I have faith in that.

Adrian Amos: Hey, this guy and Kyle Fuller came to play. Amos had an interception for a touchdown. The entire defense was solid only giving up three field goals. Akiem Hicks had a field day on Joe Flacco.

Tariq Cohen: Touchdown pass? Great! Fumble leading to points by the Ravens? Bad. Back to the touchdown, great play-calling by Dowell Loggains. Trubisky isn’t putting up big numbers, but these trick plays are opening up other options. Zach Miller had a nice catch in the end zone from Cohen.

Jordan Howard: 36 carries, 167 yards. 53-yard run in overtime. Enough said.

Special teams: These fucking guys are terrible. Up 17-3, Bobby Rainey gets knocked down by his own teammate and the Bears think he’s down. And instead, they all spectate. PLAY UNTIL THE WHISTLE. Touchdown Ravens. Then, after Trubisky throws a touchdown to Dion Sims (great catch), the Bears are leading 24-13. Two-minute warning is up and the Bears promptly punted after failing to get a yard on 3rd down. Then, an EASY touchdown return by Michael Campanaro. The Ravens promptly succeed on the two-point conversion. The special teams allowed this to happen.

Next up: sCam Newton and the Panthers come to town next Sunday. Lock your doors or risk having your laptop stolen by sCam Newton.

The Iceman Pitcheth…….what a game!

October 13, 2017

“I’ve always known he’s got a lot of mettle in his soul,” Ben Zobrist, who scored two runs for Chicago, said about Davis. “The guy just shows up. He’s got ice in his veins.”

Lost my voice screaming: Vikings 20 Bears 17

October 9, 2017

A ton of penalties.

Bad defense.

Costly turnovers.

Isn’t that every loss by the Bears? I mean, they had a touchdown in the first quarter only to have it called back by a holding penalty. They also stopped the Vikings late in the game and Leonard Floyd was called for holding. I mean, this is what it is. The Bears are still a very bad football team.

Mitch Trubisky: Hey, it was fun watching him play. That two-point conversion was amazing. I know that interception was not a smart throw that cost them the game late. RUN THE DAMN BALL. But overall, bad defense and penalties ultimately decided it. And if anyone thinks Mike Glennon gave them a better chance, please go put your head into a bucket of wet cement.

Bears vs. Ravens next week in Baltimore.

Your thoughts in the thread.

Stepping up when it really counts (again).

I’m glad Maddon started Kyle Hendricks last night.

I believe that he’s the current “ace” of the Chicago Cubs starting pitchers. What a great performance last night. Like Greg Maddux, he can be overpowering, without a crushing fastball.

chucky Says:

Right here Ernie. All I can say is this:\

THANK FUCKING GAWD THAT FUCKING, GODDAMNED TOOTHPICK EATING ASSHAT IS FUCKING GONE FROM CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!!! I miss that motherfucking asswipe as much as much as I’d miss having VD. Dusty, you are a worthless bag of fuck, and you don’t deserve to be in a major league ball park unless you bought a fucking ticket. And I might even question that, you fucking shit sucking goddamn HACK!!!!!

How was that Ernie?

 

Exhausted: Packers 35 Bears 7 – Early in the 4th quarter

September 28, 2017

It’s late. The game was delayed about 45 minutes. The defense is just hard to watch. In fact, this entire team is tough to tolerate.

Mike Glennon: Fuck this guy. He’s been responsible for four turnovers and it’s only the end of the 3rd quarter. I’ve seen enough. I am sure all of you have as well.

Connor Barth: Can someone please explain how this idiot keeps his job? This guy could bang John Fox’s old lady and still be employed by this team. He needs to be given a swirly in a high school locker room for his putrid kicking. What a way to kill any momentum this team may have had.

Defense: TURN. AROUND. WHEN. THE. BALL. IS. THROWN. TO. A. WIDE. RECEIVER. Also, nice going by Danny Trevathan for that helmet hit when the receiver was already stopped. That lead to a touchdown rather than a field goal.

Bears vs. Vikings on Monday Night Football October 9th. Who smells 1-4?

Toilet humor: Mike Glennon and Connor Barf

Some dickhead (okay, it was me) edited both Mike Glennon and Connor Barth’s Wikipedia page. Call me mean.
