Re: Charmed Brewers get Marlins series moved to Milwaukee

I'd be less peeved if the Brewers didn't whine and bitch at every turn about those two game-changes at Wrigley.

Re: Charmed Brewers get Marlins series moved to Milwaukee

Are you... Are you mad at a hurricane? Man, this has taken your weather vendetta to new extremes. When this has happened previously they've moved these games to neutral ground...I think that's the bone of contention here. That's how Zambrano ended up with a no-no against the Astros in Milwaukee.

Yes, I'm clearly mad at the hurricane and not the ridiculous decision by MLB.

Charmed Brewers get Marlins series moved to Milwaukee

Imagine if roles were reversed and the Brewers had to play home games in their opponents park?

What a joke decision by MLB.

Re: Is this 1969 All Over Again?

Even an irrational meatball such as myself realizes this was our first series loss in a few weeks... unfortunate that it had to be a sweep. This slide would have to last another 1.5-2 weeks to be considered a collapse, and the 2nd half Cubs have inspired enough confidence to believe that's not going...

I mean, with Montgomery likely back to the pen and Duensing having a solid year, I think it just has to happen.

Re: World Series Swag Thread

Are dvds available that show all 7 games of the WS? We are getting rid of cable and getting satellite and I'll be losing what's been saved. Thanks. There's an 8 disc set that has all 7 games of the ws and game 6 of the nlcs. https://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Cubs-World-Collectors-Blu-ray/dp/B01LRCDYSY

Gonna be real tough to win the division with no Contreras, no Lester, and a horrible bullpen.

Sorry if posted elsewhere, but the Cubs are the first defending WS Champs ever to not send a returning player to the ASG.

Re: Send Schwarber Down!!

In all honesty, is it the craziest idea? It's easy to forgot how little MLB experience he actually has. I think we can live with an OF of Happ/Almora/Heyward/Jay/Zobrist for a bit.

Say what you will about Matt Vasgersian, the dude knows how to heighten the excitement and drama of a postseason home run. I'll say that he's way over the top and sounds like nails on a chalkboard. What an odd take. "Way over the top" for a clutch home run in the postseason? Hmm ok I appr...

Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Rizzo and Wood are the only holdovers from 2012 after Castro and Valbuena were traded away. 2013 was Rondon's Rule 5 year, along with Arrieta, Strop, and Grimm mid-season. I was looking at different Cubs rosters & stats the other day. The 2013 team really blew my mind, it was just weird seeing ...
