Site News and Downtime

I just wanted to give you guys a heads up that I will be doing a very minor security upgrade to the site at 2:30 PM CST today.The whole process shouldn't take more than twenty minutes. Once finished, I'm pretty sure I've figured out how to keep Chad out of the site permanently.

I kid because I care.

Otherwise, I added a link to our mobile site in the upper navigation bar or you can enter your phone number in the box on the lower right and have the link sent to your cell phone. I've also added a brief shout-out to those who were are top givers during our April donation drive in the lower left sidebar. Finally, reader Wiscgrad provided us with a wonderful resource that lists how the Cubs have faired in All-Star games, award balloting, the Hall of Fame and much more. You can find the link via the "TCR Junk Drawer" in the navigation bar as well.

I meant an hour and there would be a big bug with my tabs and drop-down menus.

(sigh)

it should all be fixed now...except I seem to have lost the numbered comments. That might take a little longer to get back.

anyone with IE7 not seeing the image in the featured post?

and below the CBS ad on the right, is it all white after the stories?

Yep, not seeing image with IE7

I think the server I was pulling from for the image in the upper left featured post was the problem. Does everyone see Len and Bob now?

No idea what's with the CBS ad though. There's suppose to be ads below the story elements, seems to work fine in FF and Safari.

 

I see Len and Bob.

I see dead people.

I see London, I see France...

  • Did anybody see that Zobrist strikeout?

    That was extremely disappointing.

  • Strangest win of the year, and one of the sweetest. Twice I thought it was easily in the bag, then after the first 2 hitters in the 9th I thought all was lost. Big game for Grimm, Strop & Rondon. But, man, those Cards can hit for power.

  • Very satisfying, gut-check win today. The beers on the trip back to Chicago are going to taste fantastic.

  • It's still very early but this game felt very important to me and probably knocked 2 years off my life. Seemed like every inning was big.

  • Yes then they moved him two spot then not so much, back batting 7th

  • This is the exact game that the Cubs would have lost in years past to the Cardinals.

  • Arrieta starting. Leads of 6-1 and 9-4. You don't expect to have such a sense of relief when they win.

  • At least the end result was worth the wait.

  • I guess he's better than what they've had. He started out like the Babe there.

  • Fair enough, but Castro isn't really very good.

  • I can just hear Pat Hughes chortling "typical Cubs-Cards game..."

  • As long as Maddon uses him against RH he is good. Against LH - not so much.

    His recent HR's obviously have not been great pitches.

    So, let's just say my personal confidence in the guy is not there yet.

  • not that I'm agreeing with E-Man in anyway here, but Warren's FIP and peripherals are not really good (5.20 FIP/5.19 BB/9/.128 BABIP), although his actual results are a lot better. Well until today...

    Trade was also to make room for Zobrist and it'll be a few years before we can really judge it.

  • Eventually, the Maddon "play everyone everywhere" thing was going to create a problem.
