    Cubs beat the Reds 8-6. Reds had a rally in the 9th but Winker hit into a 3-6-1 DP to kill it and Puig flied to right to end it.

    Why do I keep getting the error message that says:

    “Your reply cannot be created at this time”

    Seems like it usually happens on Saturday.

    And now the Cubs get another break. Houston places George Springer on the 10 day IL. He will miss the Cubs series next week in Houston.

    Rats, I have no idea about the posting problem you are seeing. I’ve had no reports from others and have not experienced it myself. I suggest you post on the “Questions About the New TCN” thread, which is stuck to the top of the board, and perhaps someone else might be able to offer additional information.

    Braves score one in the top of the second to draw first blood.

    Carpenter seems to be coming around a little. I like him lower in the order where he produce runs. If he can get on pace and start piling up some RBIs that would certainly help.

    Big two-out RBI by Goldy there. Need more of that.

    Hudson with a terrible bunt attempt to move Molina. I will say it again, getting a bunt down is a required skill of any pro player, pitcher or not. That bunt attempt is another reason we are only a .500 team.

    Goldschmidt will be fine. He is human like all ballplayers and will go through slumps. He will be near his career averages by the end of the year.

    He does need to be moved the the #3 spot in the lineup, though.

    Hudson has pitched six strong innings, mostly punctuated by infield ground outs. With a one-run lead, how fast do you pull him if he gets into trouble?

    Yeaha, Goldschmidt really needs to be in the 3,4, or 5 slots. Especially once he starts progressing towards his norm – we will need that run production.

    Like what I am seeing of Hudson tonight. Lots of ground outs, good command. With his pedigree, as he goes out there every fifth day, he should get better, gain confidence, and be a solid starter for us over the next decade, barring injury.

    0-2 count to a walk. This is the problem.
    This team has zero toughness and zero attack mentality. Go after the hitter. You are ahead in the count. Attack!

    The gutless Cards went down with a whimper… Oh, wait. Gyorko hit a three-run homer. Never mind. 😉

    Bad AB by Wong. Now let’s just hope Hicks has his command and does not make this too much of a nail biter.

    Let’s close this out

    You’d hope that rally can spark more than just a win tonight. But I’ll take a win tonight if we can hold on

    LOL. “That needs to be locked up in a safe” and “carrying an anchor slows him down”
