  1. The biggest concerns for me are Maddon's decisions. Who starts and bats where in the lineup & when to yank the starter and who pitches next.
  2. I've likely posted about this before, but here I go again... Strop & Rondon. Seriously, how many times do these guys need to hurt us before we do something about it? Cubs up, but game not close enough, no drama? Put one of those clowns in. Watching Rondon pitch HR derby last night was brutal. There are positives though. 11 games over .500, 3.5 game lead
  3. Thanks John. Surely we can't be dumb enough to chase Darvish. After Friday's fiasco, plenty of relief rumors involving the Cubs. Trusting the FO to be smart right now.
  4. What do you guys think the next addition or change will be? Nice start post-ASB, but look at who we played.
  5. Nice to occasionally weigh in on the SenorGato, I mean Cubs thread. Somebody wiser than me said - Now I understand the giants every other year thing a little better. Pitching is killing us. Jake showed what he can be today, but can he give us that consistently? It's easy to predict Jake and Lackey gone next year. The Pen? Let's end the Stropdon experience. These guys need to go. Davis and Edwards are the keepers. The others? We just need a consistent bridge between starter and setup.
  6. Thanks John, I appreciate your opinion. It was weird watching today - our pen getting hit, throwing walks and beaning batters. The Pirates pen striking our guys out or otherwise getting out of trouble. Uehera was difficult to watch. Grimm as well. 1-0 becomes 1-6 and .500 ball. Not the end of the world. Lucky enough to be going to the Rockies series in Denver early May.
  7. I think today answered some questions for us. Strop needs something, maybe some new scenery. Deunsing? Please.....and Wade Davis, I'm not sold on. Yes, it's early but some farm for some pen needs to be considered. Or John Jay is expendable as well.
  8. Great to see you're still here, John. The pen always concerns me. Schwarbs leading off? - not convinced but hoping I am wrong. Heyward's swing -Yikes! Those read like negatives but we have many positives. Should be fun.
  9. I ask that Cubs fans remember who we are and what it took to win it last year. A lot of talent, luck and variables that worked our way. Expecting that again is a nice thought, but let's not turn into cards fans. Thanks.
  10. It's hard not to be sarcastic at this move.
  11. This game is meh as far as I'm concerned. Was going to go out and watch, but could not stomach any kind of phony patsy cheering.
  12. Brownies win a game and hack mag SI dumps us in the basement. http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/12/28/nfl-power-rankings-week-17-standings-playoffs
  13. As a 40+ year Cubs and Jets fan, just stopping in to congrat the other Jets fans that are happy with the WS win. Still numb about it but quite happy. Cheers!!!
  14. One more thing - Don't take your physio lightly or skip appointments thinking you don't need it. You do.
  15. Had total hip replacement done on the right side in 2007. 3-4 weeks with a walker, then 3-4 weeks with a cane. Every day gets better, it's just time. It became my strong leg and walking around pain free was great for years. Now I have to get the left side done. No biggie because I know what to expect. Just like I do with the Jets.
