Big series win. I hope we can finish off the sweep and keep our foot on the throttle for the 9 game home stretch. This team needs to pull away this month so we don't have to worry so much about that brutal part of the schedule the last couple weeks of the season. Although playing only contenders for the last 13 games could help us out a lot in the playoffs. I'm just ****ing ready for September to get here. The anticipation is going to kill me. GO CUBS GO!

Dude, you know they are going to choke. Thats what they do. Despite your team spending $500 million of its cable money in the last two years trying to buy a pennent when it comes down to it your team will choke. It will probably be in the playoffs. You'll make an error, someone will hit a late inning home run on the other team and deflate the team, something will happen. It always does. You don't win a World Series in 100 years without some seriously bad karma.

b) When your team's payroll is over $100,000,000, you lose any right to complain about other teams buying a pennant. The Cubs have the 7th-highest payroll, and the ever-so-frugal Cardinals have the 11th.

And all it takes to go 100 years without a championship is to have been in existence that long and had some shitty leadership. There's no such thing as a curse; just ask the Red Sox and White Sox.

Suspect in quadruple homicide arrested




Edmonds started the year with the San Diego Padres (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/sdg/;_ylt=AqHOxzXKWnw0fe9aCOSL1Supu7YF), hitting .178 in 26 games with one homer. He was released on May 9. After he cleared waivers, the Cubs signed him as a free agent on May 15.
Since then, Edmonds is hitting .277 with 12 homers in 155 at-bats.

Oh he was just awful in SD. When he came to the Cubs, the Cubs noticed that his stance was too short, so they asked him to widen his stance, like he used to for the Cardinals, and low and behold, here he is.

That may have something to do it, since Petco is a very very pitcher friendly park, but even that, Edmounds openly admitted that not only that he was standing straight up in his stance, but the medications that he was taking for his concussion that he suffered was also to blame as well.

http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20080709&content_id=3101020&vkey=news_chc&fext=.jsp&c_id=chc

The Cubs center fielder suffered a slight concussion on June 21, 2006, when he crashed into the outfield wall at U.S. Cellular Field during an Interleague game between the Cardinals and White Sox. Edmonds was trying to snare a home run by Joe Crede. He hit the ground hard, and clutched the back of his head. Doctors prescribed medication.

"It was supposed to help me concentrate because when I was playing, I would get dizzy and it was hard to play a whole game," he said. "Even going into the following season in '07, I still had trouble."

He took the medication last year, and was still taking it at the beginning of this season when he played for the San Diego Padres. After he was released on May 9, and joined the Cubs, he talked to athletic trainer Mark O'Neal, whom Edmonds knew from their days when both were in St. Louis.

"What [the medication] does is, it makes you concentrate but it plays tricks with your eyes," Edmonds said. "When I was looking through the fence, I was having trouble watching the game, and it affected my vision so much it was twisting me around."

O'Neal and Edmonds talked, Edmonds did some homework, and decided to stop taking it.

"I feel pretty good now," Edmonds said. "We'll see how it goes."

He was feeling so good in June that he led all Cubs regulars with a .319 average. That's quite a comeback after beginning the season at .178 in 26 games with the Padres. Edmonds blames his slow start on a Spring Training injury coupled with changes he made in his swing in an attempt to make the most of PETCO Park in San Diego.

"I stood up a little taller and I was trying to swing down on the ball and it wasn't my swing," he said. "It had me in a funk. All those little things I was doing was adding to me having a tough time."

The Padres athletic trainer also tried to get Edmonds to stop taking the medication.

"It's funny because a lot of guys take it," Edmonds said. "They said they were having a little problem with it, too. You never know -- you're trying to do the right thing, and it was time to do something else."

Cubs>Angels and would still have the best record in baseball had Soriano not gone down for so long, not making excuses but the Cubs offense is unstoppable with him in the lineup

Intersting.

First, Angels might have even a better record if they had STARTED the season with their #1 and #2 Pitchers. In fact, the Angels might have better record if they still had their #2 pitcher (Escobar--18 game winner last year), which they dont. Lackey didnt start until mid May...Oh, and look, they still have the best record in baseball, despite all that...Soriano injury is all you got? Did the Cubs begin the season without Z and Demp?

Secondly, The Angels rotation is heads and tails above The Cubs rotation, and thats not slamming the Chi town rotation, but thats just how good the Halos pitching is. They are #1 in almost every pitching category, including--WINS. Every pitcher has at least 10 wins.

As far as facing the Chi Town staff, they are tough no doubt, but they dont have the post season experience or sucess and quite frankly, The Angel Rotation is just slightly better.

Also, there are 3 World Series winners on staff, Lackey, Garland and Krod, plus 3 Current All Stars (Saunders, Santana and KRod).

Do i believe the Cubs are a great team, with great pitching? Absolutely. But to make it out as if their pitching staff is better than ours is laughable at this stage. ANd to say if it wasnt for Sorianos injury, considering what The Angels had to deal with for the first on the and half of the season, and still missiing (Escobar), The Cubs would have a better record...is also laughable.

To be honest with you, the Cubs and Angels pitching staff is almost equal at best. Angels pitcher's VORP is 192.6 and the Cubs are 191.2. Not much difference. The weakness is the Angel offense, which their hitter VORP is a 76.8, compared to the Cubs 247.8.

Cubs pitchers have 76 wins. Angels pitchers have 76 wins. Every time a team wins, one of their pitchers win. I don't care if they are starting pitchers or not. I enjoy having wins from middle releif pitchers.

Cubs team ERA = 3.77; 4th in MLB
Angles team ERA = 3.89; 7th in MLB
And Wrigley is a hitter friendly ballpark, whereas Angel Stadium is designed for pitchers. A stat I found on ESPN actually shows Angels Stadium as the sixth hardest place to score runs, and Chicago as the sixth easiest. Since the Cubs staff has a better ERA., you must agree the Cubs rotation is easily superior.

I even have a link to support my argument. Imagine That! :D

The Cubs won their fourth in a row to move 32 games above .500 for the first time since they were 90-58 on Sept. 15, 1984. They trailed 8-7 before scoring seven times in the eighth against three Pirates pitchers. Craig Hansen (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7683/;_ylt=AoxeCm_D3xZG1mSRdCpJ47Gpu7YF) (0-2) walked in the tying and go-ahead runs while walking three consecutive batters and Soto hit his second bases-loaded double in a span of five innings.

I love how the only argument you both can make is about history. Historically speaking yes you have won more championships but that has nothing to do with this year. This year your team is overachieving thus far. The cubs have been playing well without Sorianos bat which historically is sure to come around. All of the Cards fans knew going into this year that it was a rebuilding year. However now that they have overachieved in a primarily home part of the schedule you all seem to be blinded to the fact that come September you will be 8+ GB of the NL Central lead. Talent comes into play as the season progresses and the current rosters are not even comparable in talent level.

The only argument you can make is about shit that hasn't happened. Brilliant.

Soriano, Lee, and Ramirez are legitimate superstars who can carry a team, Ramirez' grand slam last night?? Sick.

Theriot, Fukodome, Fontenot, Derosa and Johnson are perfect role players...and Ward is a money left handed bat from the bench...the Cubs have the best bench in baseball, easily.

Marmol + Wood = game over and I haven't even mentioned the ridiculous starting pitching (Harden, Zambrano, Dempster, Lilly)...

they literally have no weaknesses...they have the best bench in baseball...a strong bullpen and a great starting rotation...

They have guys that get on base, they have guys that hit for power...they have team players and a legendary manager.

This team is the best team I can remember watching...NO weaknesses. They had one in center field until they acquired Edmonds for peanuts and now the Edmonds/Johnson platoon is a force in centerfield...

It's funny to see how bitter the Cardinals fans are this year...the Cubs have this division locked up for the next 3 years, easy.

Marquis - May not play in the playoff roster, as he was left off last year.

Edmunds - Haven't seen him much in the clutch department, since Aramis Rameriz has been doing that quite well.

Zambrano - ERA is 3.53, a improvement from last year's ERA of 3.95. WHIP is 1.301 compared to last year's 1.33,. Not sure what you're trying to get out of this one.

Soriano - Probably a weakness out in the field, but it offsets with his production on the plate.

Wood - Has been to a DL just becuase of a blister problem, not a shoulder/arm problem. That's a major difference. Even if he does go to the DL, the Cubs have a nice back-up plan in Carlos Marmol.

And as for the adversity does hit, well, it has hit when Soriano and Wood went to the DL, yet they did fine.

And for the winning thing, well, hate to break it to you, but it is going to change this year, believe it or not.

OK naysayers--

First let me just say I really hope its the Cubs this year representing the NL.

I find it interesting that people think the team witht he best record in BAseball, who happen to play in the tougher league are overrated.

Soriano a big loss? Yes.

Lackey, Escobar, (with Escobar never returning), both 18 game winners last year. Also, Kendrick has been out most of the season. We also lost our SS and 2b in the same inning a month ago. Does that equal the time Soriano is out? Or is that only worth 4 days?:spock:The NL is an inferrior league. We all can agree on that, right?

Does the AL west blow? Yes. But did you think that maybe our kicking their ass all the time has something to do with their poor record as well? We also have a winning record agaisnt Boston, NY, Chicago, and Minnesota, all in the running for the playoffs. All very tough teams. Granted, we chunked against The Rays. Did Chicago have to face those teams ? Nope. Although, I think they would of done very well agaisnt them. But, I also dont think the Cubs are overrated. Neither are the Angels. Thats my point. I'm not dissing the Cubs. I hope they make it. But to say The Angels are overrated? Lets revisit that when we play each other. It wont be a walk in the park, for either team.

uh I wouldn't be breaking out the champagne just yet, Didn't you win the Central last year and then got swept, not only swept but looked horrible in doing it? You will choke. It's what the Cubs do.

Ah yes, the 2007 argument. Let me remind you that you should compare the team statistics between 2007 and 2008 before maybe assuming that the Cubs are going to get swept by the Mets/Phils. Here, let me lead you into the right direction, my friend.

2007 AVG - .271 (13th in MLB)
2008 AVG - .277 (4th in MLB)

2007 OBP - .333 (17th in MLB)
2008 OBP - .354 (2nd in MLB)

2007 SLG - .422 (15th in MLB)
2008 SLG - .443 (5th in MLB)

2007 OPS - .754 (15th in MLB)
2008 OPS - .797 (3rd in MLB)

2007 ERA - 4.04 (4th in MLB)
2008 ERA - 3.85 (4th in MLB)

2007 WHIP - 1.32 (4th in MLB)
2008 WHIP - 1.29 (Tied 3rd in MLB)

You know, at some point, you're gonna have to sit back and realize that, "Okay, they made the necessary improvements on offense, while staying even or a slight improvement on pitching. This appears to be a very good baseball team."

So the sweep issue last year wasn't the pitching, in fact where the culprit was the offense, becuase the Cubs couldn't generate any runs at all. I don't think trying to score runs this year is going to be a issue, BRC.

hey, stranger things have happened. Some people were predicting we would lose 100 games this year. We stayed competitive until September.

With all that talent on the Cubs you should win it all.

Nice season so far. Congrats on the 2nd straight Central title.:clap:

I didn't think the Cards were going to lose 100 games this year. I figured ya'll would be in the thick of the race until September. Any Tony La Russa coached team will be very competitive, even if there are some people who may dislike him.

Yes, with all that talent, they should win it all. I should also throw in that the NL Central is a very strong division, becuase there are 4 teams in the NL Central that is above .500. So to win a division championship with 4 teams above .500 is very impressive.

If it were up to me, I'd lead about 300 goats into the outfield and slaughter 'em all. The whole curse thing has to end. People have tried being nice to goats to no avail. Time to put the fear of God in the Goat-cursing world if ya ask me.

But ya, I expected a choke. It was still satisfying treating the Cards like an illigitimate stepchild all season though :). My woes as a Cubs/Chiefs fan will continue for quite some time I suspect.....

It really is the curse. All of your infielders were worried about choking, being nervous and committed errors.

The only way Boston finally got the monkey off their back was coming from 0-3 down against the Yankees and winning. Then they had no pressure on them. Everything else after that was gravy. But I wish they could have waited until the next year to do that but alas...

Meh. Still a little hope. Harden should have been the game 1 starter...if Harden can't win game 3 then it is what it is.

Playoff baseball is playoff baseball. Cardinals fans should know a thing or two about that when they won it all as the worst team in the postseason a few years ago.

Baseball is really the only pro sport where, once you get in, every team is really on a level playing field. Shit, they should add a 9th team to the postseason, the team with the worst record in the majors, and I bet every once in a while that team ends up winning a series or two, and maybe even a title.

That's just baseball.

I'd just like to point out that since the Cubs won their last playoff GAME, the Cardinals have won six playoff series, two pennants and a world championship.

and?

Has anyone ever questioned that the Cardinals are a more successful franchise in terms of winning than the Cubs?

We know. Trust me, every Cubs fan knows. Congratulations. The Cubs have won two straight division championships...although they apparently turn to shit in the playoffs, at least they're heading in the right direction...and lord knows the Cubs have a lot more money to spend to fix their problems than the Cardinals do...oh wait, they're rebuilding...even though they don't have that great of a farm system.
