    2019 Chicago Cubs

    o (AUGUST 15th) Darvish became only the second pitcher in MLB history to go 4 consecutive starts with 8-Plus Strikeouts and 0 Walks ........ but the Cubs lost the game. In those 4 games combined, Darvish has 36 Strikeouts and 0 Walked over 24 Innings Pitched. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/gl.fcgi?id=darviyu01&t=p&year=2019 Darvish Historically Good, but Cubs Still Crumble (By Jesse Rogers) https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/27397191/darvish-historically-good-cubs-crumble o
  2. o Correct. And the amount that he was sold for to the Yankees ($100,000) was the largest sum ever paid for a player in MLB history at the time. o
  3. o Also, it's not true that Ruth was traded for the financing of that play. Ruth was traded in December of 1919, while the play No, No, Nanette was not even written until 1924, and did not come out until 1925. Ruth essentially forced the trade with his incorrigible behavior, but as is the case with most legends of lore, the myth sounds sexier. o
  4. o Mike Ford is pitching for the Yankees. So far, he has ceded 5 Runs in 1.33 Innings Pitched. o

  6. o Brian Wilson, on the origins of Good Vibrations ........ It started when he was about 12 years-old in 1954, and he asked his mother why a dog was barking at them as they walked along the sidewalk. She told him, "Son, because some dogs pick up vibrations from some people, but not from other people. And when they pick up bad vibrations, they bark." And then he asked her, "But what about 'Good Vibrations', Mom"? She told him, "Well, sometimes they pick up 'Good Vibrations.'" 12 years later in early 1966, when Wilson was singing the melody of the new song that he was starting to write to Mike Love, Wilson said, "You know what, Mike? I would like to call it, 'Good Vibrations.'" o

  10. o It's a wonderful life. o
  11. o The Pirates had 3 consecutive playoff appearances in 2013, 2014, and 2015, with records of 94-68, 88-74, and 98-64, respectively. The Brewers went 6 straight years without making the postseason between 2012 and 2017, including 3 losing seasons of 74-88 in 2013, 68-94 in in 2015, and 73-89 in 2016. Prior to their return to prominence in 2015, the Cubs had 5 straight losing season between 2010 and 2014, including a record of 61-101 in 2012. It's been pretty much been the same thing for the last 2-plus seasons (2017, 2018, and 2019), not the past 10 seasons. o

  13. o (AUGUST 14th) As I stated (and expected) in the OP from almost 2 months ago, the Reds and the Pirates have fallen off the pace, while the Cardinals, the Cubs, and the Brewers all remain in contention as legitimate/bona fide playoff contenders. o
