2019 Chicago Cubs Thread

Recommended Posts

Carl's Jr. is on his way to San Diego. He pitched in game 7 of the 2016 WS, and for that he will forever be a Cub. Too bad he couldn't get his shit under control.

Yep, saw that like 2 minutes after my post of course. 

Carl's Jr is gone too to the Padres. That might overshadow Greinke.

 

I hope Carl turns things around in SD. Seems like a good dude that just can't get his head straight. Just dirty when he is on.

Willson pulls up lame. No bueno.
 
But Almora goes deep right after to take the lead.
 


Nope. Need another catcher now for probably at least a week.

Quality start by Darvish -- had his customary first inning hiccup (dinger by Yelich) but then settled down.  When his control is on (8:0 K/BB), he can be very tough on hitters.

Yu just keeps getting better. Guy was touching 96 on the radar after 90 pitches. 

Hopefully we dont have anymore road games this season. Lol

44k’s and 2bb since July 1st. Starting to remind me a little bit like Arrieta where his mechanics have to be perfect and if just slightly off he looses command.

Javy! We could use a good two week stretch where he just carries the team on his back.

Happ also been solid.

As a Rangers’ fan, I apologize in advance. 

 

If you are a fan of pussy GBs to 2B/SS, he’s your guy.

And right as he seems to be heating up, Javy fouls one off his shin.  Hope he's okay.  Looked like the shinguard should have absorbed most of the energy and contact, but he definitely still felt it.

Nice to get some payback for yesterday's thrashing.  Happ has been power raking since he got called up.

Today was very much needed. Not just for the win, but the pen got the day off.

Apparently, Taylor Davis' scoreless inning the other night was insufficient to convince the front office of his worth as a backup catcher.

He's a backup to our backup and has caught both Hamels and Darvish. More concerning is this road trip. 10 games in 11 days.... make or break.

Already one of those road games. Take a quick 5-1 lead and Hamels gives it right back up. However Castellanos hits his second of the game for a 6-5 lead, in only the 4th inning. If we win this game we will have a winning road trip. Lose it and we won’t.

Sucks for Q, 14 Ks, bats are quiet and an error in the field leads to an unearned.

Fuck this fucking piece of shit bullpen. 


I’m taking a couple of days off from this team. College football needs to hurry the fuck up.

I missed it yesterday, but at this point Joe is full of shit of he thinks he'll be back next season, it's not all his fault, but then road woes are hilariously bad. Havent won a road series since May! That's on the manager. It's a culture.

Last night confirmed for me what we all should have known for the last couple of months. They are going to make the playoffs and either lose in the Wild Card game or get destroyed in the Division Series. 

Just an absolute waste of a great core of young players. Will be interesting to see what changes they make the next year or so because next year is the end of the window I fear.

Wild one tonight.


Hopefully one that gets this team playing a little more consistent. Although they are pretty damn good at home.

Didn't see a sweep of Stroman, Thor, and DeGrom coming with this weird month. With the exception of the Nats series this team has been playing well the last two weeks. Willson is also set to play in Iowa tonight and Hamels is back as well.

Kimbrel on the IL, I havent had a good feeling all season and this certainly doesnt help. Maybe Joe has a lucky horseshoe or something.

Got exactly what we needed today. Just dong your way to a victory, and need to just do that this entire weekend. Leadoff spot got on base on all 6 at bats and Schwarber is still riding his hot streak since about the beginning of August.

The Cubs are not looking to Nico Hoerner as a savior for a season in the balance. The highly-touted shortstop prospect was not even the team's plans until 2020 at the earliest. That was before a series of setbacks necessitated an altered and expedited timeline.

MLB.com learned Monday morning that Hoerner -- the Cubs' No. 1-ranked prospect by MLB Pipeline -- will be promoted to the Major Leagues ahead of Chicago's series against the Padres in San Diego tonight. The surprising decision to summon the young shortstop comes with both Javier Baez and Addison Russell sidelined for the North Siders.

Bryant just got a cortisone injection in his knee today to. Out at least 1 day. Injuries killing this team that is already inconsistent.

Rizzo fucked his right ankle up pretty good too. 


Not broken, but worried about some ligament damage. I think Carantini and Happ can fill in ok in the short term, but fuck this team has had a lot of injuries this year.

Getting the Pirates in town sure fluffed up the batting stats.  Gotta keep it going vs. the pesky Reds.  Glad to hear no break for Rizzo, but still sucks that he's out for a while right in the midst of a crucial run.  I think we'll miss his defense even more than his bat.
