I think Joe Madden would be a Hoot to play for. Buck as well.

6-3 win tonight, 11 out of their last 12. Rizzo and Soler with 2 RBI each. A hot team right now.

I like Buck but I'm surprised to see him on there.  he was a real hard arse when managed the Dbacks and was classified as a "micro manager".  Maybe he has mellowed some in his later years.

The kids are picking up some momentum.  They feel like they can't lose.  Hope they can keep it up down the stretch and it could be a wild postseason...

Hell, they're only 1.5 games back of the Pirates to host the WC game.

Another win today! We are on a roll! I hope they keep this up. Chicago is going to be electric when I'm there Sept 15 for the AC/DC show at Wrigley.

Maddon pushing all the right buttons.  Hope he stays with the cubs for a very long time.  He just seems to know how to get the most out of his guys.

I definitely think Maddon is the best, or at least very close to it, manager in baseball. I was really hoping St. Louis would find a way to get him after LaRussa retired. I hated seeing him go to the cubs.

I assumed the Cards would go after him when TLR resigned. Maddon was my first choice. Props to the cubs for getting him.

I think they actually tried, but he was under contract and Tampa wouldn't let them talk.

Rizzo hits a 3-run homer and Coghlan triples in his second straight game to beat the Braves and snap a losing streak. Cubs need to play better against teams with losing records.

Jake Arrieta is first in MLB to 15 wins.

He hit the mark by fanning seven batters in six innings Thursday, is only the 6th Cubs pitcher in the modern era (since 1900) to be the first in MLB to 15 wins and first since Greg Maddux in 1988.

He won his 16th last night.  Amazingly only 4 no decisions this year.  Greinke and Kershaw have about 8 or 10 each because of the sorry Dodgers bullpen.  Hope you guys sweep the midgets then go into a funk this weekend.  Although with Latos starting saturday I'm sure you will win that game!

Kershaw took care of you guys last night.  Now the Cubs have the advantage the next 2 games with Lester and Arrietta.  I would be ecstatic if Dodgers win one of those.  We have Giants Monday-Wed with Greinke and Kershaw Tues/Wed so I think we will win 2 of 3 from them (hopefully).

Arrieta throws a no-hitter last night in a 2-0 win that snaps a four-game losing streak.  ;D

Arietta is a stud.  Will probably lead the NL in wins and could win the Cy Young depending what happens in the next few weeks.  Greinke may have something to say about it.

Arietta is probably the only player who can keep the NL Cy Young out of LA.  Not only has Greinke had a historic year so far in terms of ERA, Kershaw is having another Clayton Kershaw season.  Those would be the top 3 guys and DeGrom would round out the top 4.

Couldn't argue much about those 4. I'd also throw Madbum to round out the rotation.

Bumgarner is probably the #7 or so guy in line this year.  I would put at least Scherzer and Cole above him right now.  Heck, there are four starting pitchers on the Cards who have a better ERA than Bumgarner right now.

Now, there isn't anyone else I would have on the mound during the WS, but there have been several pitchers better than him in the NL this year.

2 out of 3 against the Cards was nice, but we blew game 3.  Should have been a sweep.

Congratulations! It was tough to watch, I was at game 3, but it was nice to see Grichuk get back into the lineup in a limited role.

Good luck catching the damn Pirates. Hopefully we're getting everybody back in time to hold y'all off in September!

I don't think the Cards are really that nervous. Everybody's getting healthy at the right time and the schedule gets pretty easy the rest of the way except for the 3 against the Cubs and 3 against the Pirates. The Cubs and Pitt both have tougher schedules remaining.

Not going to lie, as a Cards fan, I will be nervous once the postseason rolls around. I still think we are safe to win the division, but that's not what I really care about.

I agree 100%. The Cardinals, Pirates, and Cubs are unquestionably the 3 best teams in the NL -- arguably the three best teams in baseball (due respect to KC and Toronto). It's laughable that one of us will eliminate the other two prior to the NLCS.
