  • My prediction

    The Cubs are going to the WS this year. Ive seen enough.

    I think there starting pitching will be good enough to dominate the NL this year.

    I dont make predictions with my heart, rather with my head. I think this is their year. And Im happy about it, to tell you the truth. The Cubs were the team of my youth and their fans deserve a winner.

    I hope one year we have a WS played entirely in Chicago.

    I dont know if they will win the WS but I think they will be there. I dont think there is a NL team good enough to beat them.

      I'm not buying it quite yet. Been there too many times, and now that I spend great deal of time trying to solve cold cases, and put names to the unidentified, I will gladly give up another century for those who are unnamed, and remain missing for more than a quarter century.

      We can talk about the Cubbies come September..... or October..... till then, this is just another year........
      What two words strike fear into every Cubs fan?
      Oh, no.

        Come on mom, you gotta believe! This is the best start this team has had in a while and I'm excited. Who knows how things will be for us at the All-Star break or the end of the season. But for right now the Cubs look incredible and I love the way it feels. Jump on board the positivity train and have a good time with us! Chugga-chugga-chugga...TOOT TOOT! :hyper:

          Ive been watching baseball for many long years.

          Call it a gut feeling. Call it luck. Call it a 6'th sense. Call it a bunch of things that come together at one time. Or just call it a bunch of guys playing very good baseball for a year. Its a gut feeling thing. A far more cerebral thing then just looking at stats and lineups.

          Put it this way, by the last week of May in '05 I was saying, "the CWS are going to the WS this year".

          I have the same feeling about the Cubs this year. A gut feeling I didn't even have for them in '03 or '04. The ball is just bouncing their way and they are finding ways to win. I just "see" something different in this bunch.

          We'll see how it plays out. But Im not often wrong. Im not saying they are going to win the WS but I think they are going to be there.

          This is a different type of Cubs team then were used to seeing. And they are themselves starting to believe.

            Lmao.....nice. The only thing Whitesoxnut didn't bring up was the dreaded injury. That can always happen and because of that, I will not take this season for granted until October.

              I've been reflecting on the Cubs record and I'm not entirely sold yet. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE for the Cubbies to take the pennant. But I have two reservations about getting too exited just yet:

              1) It's June 1st and way too early. If they continue to roll like this into July and August then I'll start to get really excited. I think they'll make the playoffs, but simply too many games ahead

              2) We've played the NL West and Pittsburgh a lot so far, mostly at home. We've played a couple of contenders but for the most part the Cubbies have thrashed weaker teams (thank God for the NL West!!!!). True, it's a special type of team that can roll off 8-2 and 7-0 homestands, but all the same I don't think they've been really tested against the best, yet.

              A friend of the family, who played AAA baseball and has been a die-hard baseball fanatic for 40+ years, thinks this is going to be the Cubs' year. I just can't let myself get really excited yet.

                Cubs

                This team is lookin great. I could see World Series. If I were a cubbies fan, I would feel better with perhaps another solid starting pitcher.

                You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the $%#%! plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all. ~Earl Weaver

                    Thats something you cant control or predict so it has no relevance in predictions.

                    I still say, and have said since they picked him up, that building a team around Soriano was a mistake. I'd rather see one more top tier starting pitcher then Soriano, and maybe a legit LOH, but it is what it is and as long as he keeps hitting, and the starters keep winning, I'll be happy to have been proved wrong.

                    But I get a vibe from this team and this manager that tells me its a different day on the North side. This '08 Cubs team is confident, together, have dismissed any thoughts of curses, and are chopping thru opposing teams like a buzz saw.

                    The whole thing just "feels" different. Not that Im surprised. I predicted Lou would bring a WS to the northside when they hired him. Look back on my posts and you'll see I predicted it here.

                    Lou is a different kinda man then the Cubs have had in recent years. Lou expects these guys to play world class ball and now these guys expect it of themselves too. This is not the kinda team that will have long slumps and not the kind of team that worries when they are down 3,4,5,6 runs in a game.

                    Your going to see Im right.

                      Thank you WSF, and everyone who replied.

                      Hi WSN, I don't post much but lurk on occasion and have always enjoyed your posts. You mentioned a prediction. In 05' I was "excited" for the WS but didn't make my prediction until somewhere around July 7th. Not having the emotion involved, about then I just knew without a doubt the WS were going to the WS. My prediction at the time was the I-55 series between the Cards and the WS. And, well, the other part of my prediction came true just a year late. (no pun intented.)

                      It's just too soon for me to see that now... Come the all star break... maybe... and then I'll still hope they don't blow it. Heck, I grew up hearing about the 69 Cubs... and even before how so and so in my family cried in the 50's over the Cubs...... I finally came up with one of my own, the last time the Cubs won a WS my family hadn't even emmigrated here and I'm 3rd generation and we have two more already! 5 generations is a long time......

                      I guess we'll see.... will enjoy reading and maybe the occasional post until then. And of course in some worlds the Election news will take precedence... who knows... maybe our next pres will throw out the first pitch of the WS for the Cubbies, lol......

                        There's not too many teams that won the world series that didn't have some weaknesses on it as this team does, but this lineup coupled with a stronger pitching staff is more than capable of making a serious run in the postseason.

                        Obviously games have to be played on the field and not on paper, players have to perform well and stay healthy. Some teams get hot at the right time and some cool off at the wrong tome. There’s a lot of baseball left to be played and we’ll see how this pans out in the 2nd half of the season. I do agree with WSF saying this team has a different feel and its a good one at that.

                        One good thing about the NL this season is there isn't a team who is just head and shoulders above everyone else. There's no NL teams like the 1975-76 Reds, 1986 Mets or the 1998-99 Braves out there just mowing teams down. With that said, this team can't relax one bit and I don’t think they will.

                        It's gonna happen...

                          it is gonna happen only if harden can stay healthy and if soriano can stay healthy. but if they have to play the dbacks or brewers i would be worried especialy if harden did get injured again and cant play in the postseason, bcuz of the dbacks and brewers top 2 starters

                            That 1998 Braves team...wow. Maddux-Smoltz-Glavine. When we played them in the playoffs in 98 there was no chance, that rotation is devastating in a short series.

                              I can not disagree with you more about Harden. Harden does not need to stay healthy for this to happen - the Cubs have 6 starters. Now are their chances much better with Harden healthy - YES. Gaudin sures up the bullpen and Hardin gives us insurance and if healthy makes our rotation one of the best in baseball.
