Oh, another suicide thought for Cub fans, Willson Contreras, the guy who has carried the team on his back since the ASB, is having an MRI and Maddon says he is a candidate for the DL. Hurt his Hammy running out a ground ball in the 8th today.....
If the Cards catch the Cubs, Cubs fans will be blaming this cat: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.d7f038f78e54

Not that I wish injury on anyone, but I won't shed a tear for two reasons:

1) Contreras is a whiny *****.

2) Now certain Cub fans who were gloating and guffawing at the Moncada-Garcia collision are the ones ****ting themselves.

The Cardinals are taking advantage, though. They've won five in a row. Fred Bird has appeared in the Cubs' rearview mirror, and he's closer than he appears.

They seem to have a knack for that sort of thing. Remember 2011?

MLB Network radio was discussing the Contreras injury and felt that it was a direct result of the constant position changes from Genius Joe.

Yet more Cubbie-loving garbage from the Tribune:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...14-column.html

If there were something like this written about the Sox, Cub fans would be like "Well, their team sucks. What else can they write about?"

But for the Cubs, it's "Hey, everybody! Aren't these guys funny and awesome and great?!"

Wonderful, free PR stuff for the Cubs. Did Sullivan get to dance with them as well? Maybe he's waiting for his invitation.

I've already heard whining from Cubs fans about the Trib article today that JD Powers ranks the White Sox as the best fan experience of Chicago's professional sports teams

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...nt=oft02a-3li3

How can that be? For years, they've been telling us that nothing in all of sports can beat the "Wrigley Experience"

Every day the Cubs lose is a good day.

Well the Reds hit four last night and lost. It evened out.

Wasn't it last year the Sox hit seven, all solo, and got beat by Kansas City?

He got dinked to death in that 9 run inning. Didn't he give up a tenner about a month ago? Got a nice hand from the fans after giving up that 9. Deserved? Must have been a downer for the fans to come back from 9 down only to lose.
