This could be the "Marquette Gold" photo of the 2018 Cubs.  So much funny.

Bryant tugging his nuts.
Chatwood looking confused, with a nice curveball grip on the ball.
Baez kicking dirt
Ump with the safe call.
Haywood with the " you guys hangin' out?  I'll hang out" look.

I missed the photo of Rizzo at home.
Was the SS and Catcher both at 3rd?

I guess when you are 2-8 against a team, you have to hang your hat on plays like this.

...and yet you're still ahead of that team in the division.

I remember 2016.

Haha ok.

So you'd rather be 4-1 against the Cardinals but 2.5 games behind them in the standings rather than 1-4 but 2.5 games up in the standings?  Haha okay, but so goes the logic of a Chicago sports fan.

That's not really the question or the point, but way to dodge.

How am I dodging the question?  The Cubs are ahead of the Brewers in the loss column which means they control their own destiny.  I don't care about games back.  I care about fewer losses.

The Brewers could win out but it wouldn't matter if the Cubs win out.

Considering the Brewers and Cubs play each other, well, tonight, it would very much matter if the Brewers won out because that would mean the Cubs wouldn't be winning out.  But sure am glad the Cubs control their own destiny on June 13.  Wish the Brewers still had control of their own destiny.  Just praying for some help here!

A little touchy eh?

And weren't Cub fans crowing about 1 baserunning earlier this week? 

They were both good plays.  Fun plays.

That was pretty brilliant base-running by Cain, telling Yelich exactly what to do. 

This applies to all professional sports, but if I'm a manager, part of the preseason for my players would be that everyone has to re-read the entire rule-book.  Any major changes would be discussed, but knowing little things like that can make a difference.  Different sport, but the small things like Belichick having the offensive lineman be an eligible receiver to throw off the D-backs against the Ravens in 2015, or the Ty Montgomery touching the kickoff laying with his feet out of bounds to draw the penalty in 2016.  Any advantage can be a major advantage in the right situation.

It is freaking June.  Of course they control their own destiny.  It is June.

I'd rather have the most talented team in the division.

Not that difficult when your payroll is almost double the team that is ahead of you.

I wouldn't be calling people out based on a half game lead in June either, but I am just a Chicago sports fan I guess, what do I know. 

And the most talented team doesn't always win.
And the most payroll doesn't equate to the most talent, nor the most wins. 

This pissing match is quite annoying actually.

I'm not the one who brought up the standings.

You brought up this, which seems like a petty response to what was objectively a funny play.

I guess when you are 2-8 against a team, you have to hang your hat on plays like this.

You also said
I'd rather be ahead in the loss column.

And it is still June... so, all this stuff is ridiculous when the teams are a half game apart.  The standings now only matter if you are in Sox, Royals, Orioles, Marlins territory.

See now *that's* quality social media right there!

As opposed to the sh*t-talking of two insecure fan bases that regularly occurs here.
My expectations for Marquette basketball in 2018-19: Top four in conference.  Five seed in NCAA.

You have any new, fresh material on the rain out from last year?

Right.  I said I'd rather be ahead in the loss column when asked a question about where I would want to be in the standings.
