  • Put Theo in the hof today.
    Congrats to the cubs.  Well deserved.

  • Someone needs to audit Joe Maddon's finances.  I'm beginning to think he is throwing the game for some extra cash.

    Ha, I found myself thinking that.

  • Congrads to the Cubs WS champions for the first time in 108 years.

  • The series was good for baseball.  Many of us who MLB has lost over the years paid at least somewhat attention to it and tuned in.  Ratings best of since before the steroid, large-small market, expansion era started.  It helped having an underdog and one of baseball old franchises in the series with them.  Now we will probably get a movie somehow related to the Cubs and they'll be the thing for a little while like the Red Sox were.

    The Cubs were a good enough team to overcome some truly questionable managerial moves over game 6 and 7. Maddon was nervous - you could see it on his face in the dugout. Nerves and pressure can make you not think straight sometimes. During the rain break - ARod sure ripped into him, I was shocked he was so candid.

  • Remarkable the series went 7 with the lack of depth in the Indians pitching which finally ran out.  Francona was in a tough spot with Shaw.  Thought it was obvious the after the Bryant fly out it Shaw didn't have it. 

    Did you know Schwarber had knee surgery?  Don't know if you manage to catch that in one of the few hundred times FOX mentioned it.

  • Congrats Cubbies. That's all I got really.
  • #511 by HoginMemphis on 01 Oct 2017
  • I was at Cubs-Reds game on Friday. A great time. Cubs hit a 3 run HR in bottom of 8th with 2 out to win it 5-4. Wrigley is so beautiful.
  • #512 by HoginMemphis on 13 Oct 2017
  • Nice job, Cubs. Take it to the Dodgers now.
  • #513 by Bigfoot on 13 Oct 2017
  • The Cubs are fun to watch.

    Wade Davis was a huge addition to this team. 44 pitch, 7 out save last night.

    Cubs playing in 3rd straight nlcs.
  • #514 by ChicoHog on 13 Oct 2017
  • As a die hard Dodger fan I will hand it to the Cubs for a strong second half and beating the Nationals who were the better team during the regular season.  I was hoping they would win as I didn't want to face Scherzer and Strasberg.  Looking forward to a good series and paying you guys back for last year. 
  • #515 by ChicoHog on 14 Oct 2017
  • Dodgers take first game!  Much more interesting than Hog game tonight!
  • #516 by ChicoHog on 15 Oct 2017
  • Heading to Chicago up 2-0.  Looking good!!
  • #517 by ChicoHog on 19 Oct 2017
  • Dodgers are NL Champions!   
  • #518 by Bigfoot on 20 Oct 2017
  • Congrats to the Dodgers.

    The better team won.
  • #519 by Dropkick on 20 Oct 2017
  • Great year for the Cubs. Hats off to Dodgers, they were just better. Now go beat the Yankees! (or Astros)

    Thanks for the kudos.  I think the Astros win tonight with Verlander but Yankees take game 7. Dodgers/Yankees World Series would be great.  Just like the old days! 
  • #521 by southarkhog06 on 23 Oct 2017
  • I never thought I would see the day that the Cubs would make the NLCS 3 years in a row.

    Congrats to the Dodgers, I still hope the Astros beat you in 7 games, but you earned it.

    Me either. But it finally has happened and in my lifetime too! I'm going back next year for more games at Wrigley. I can't believe it has been since 1989 that I was last at a Cubs game. Loved the experience in late Sept on last weekend of regular season.

    Glad Astros beat the Dodgers. I don't give a dang about the Dodgers way out in California. Would much rather a team from Texas win it.

    I mean Texas is about tied with Cali for states I dislike, but I always had a soft spot for the Astros, and they have DK who is one of my favorite Razorbacks of all time. Another plus is I don't want to see the Dodgers win. I cant stand to see these teams that basically print money win.

    Me either. Their payroll was $41M more than the second highest payroll last season.

    Looks like the Yankees are soaring back to the top as well,  :puke:

  • DARVISH!
  • #528 by Bigfoot on 10 Feb 2018
  • I really like the addition of Darvish to the rotation.

    Even though he has been more of a six inning starter these days, this certainly does strengthen the Cubs World Series contender status.

  • #529 by Bigfoot on 10 Feb 2018
  • Tyler Chatwood (starter) and Brandon Morrow (closer) were both good additions as well this offseason.

    Morrow kinda reminds me of Wade Davis.
  • #530 by ChicoHog on 10 Feb 2018
  • I was kind of hoping the Dodgers would resign Darvish but I knew it wouldn't happen as they are focusing on staying under the luxury tax cap so they can spend money on free agents next season, likely Bryce Harper and/or Kershaw who can opt out after 2018 season.  Darvish is a good pitcher who just blew up in the World series.  He will do well for the Cubs.  I know we will miss Morrow but 12M a year is too much for a setup guy for Jansen. 

    You guys want Matt Kemp?  We are trying hard to move him but no takers!

    It will be interesting to see where Harper ends up. A lot of money will be spent on that guy for sure.

  • According to FanGraphs’ projections, the Cubs now have the third-best rotation in the game....

    https://www.fangraphs.com/depthcharts.aspx?position=SP

    That represents a big improvement over last season, when the Cubs’ starters had slipped to 10th in the majors in WAR.

    That  2018 class is loaded with Manny Machado, Charlie Blackmon, and Josh Donaldson set to be available.
