I'm in chicken little crowd and I acknowledged I was wrong. There ya go.

The Cubs go away for two full months on the calendar, too - should be interesting seeing what these teams look like towards the end of the dog days of summer and right before the stretch run.

Good to be wrong.


Wrong wouldn’t be the word I’d use to describe that post.


What word? I love how everyone expects all fans to be optimists and are deeply offended by polite pessimists. There are different types of people! Some are optimists, some are pessimists. Me personally, I do it to protect my heavy emotional investment. So no need to respond to me in future.

I get that there are different types of fandom, but I agree with the posters calling out the pessimists. It gets really, really old game after game. It is a cop out, like "Yay, I'm glad I'm wrong, go team!" No, you expected them to lose. You don't get to pass go.

Like I said the other night, it's easy to be a pessimist. Lose and they get to gloat about how they were right. Win, and they get to see the Brewers do well. It's just a cop-out...


Aren't you doing the same thing!? [laughing]

"We won and I believed, boo on you"

Me personally, I don't gloat that we lose, I just go to bed pissed.

He can't enjoy the win unless he expected to win the entire time? Seems a little harsh.

So what's the proper reaction? Ban me from forums?

If you’re going to be a pessimist, at least be an informed one. Calling that he’ll walk two, for really no reason other than wanting to be a Debbie Downer is flat out annoying. You should be able to see this... if you don’t.. yes, full ban. Either way, everyone’s had their moments around here. Lessons learned. Cheers!

No, not at all. We're all cheering for the same team. But there is a much different tone to something like "Hard to trust Knebel here" and "Knebel is going to walk the bases loaded and we're going to lose 3-1"

I guess I don't know the answer, other than to say that yes, reading the pessimistic Negative Nellie posts does lessen my enjoyment of the game and this site. Who knows, maybe I'm the one that needs banning?

His source says something is a-Brewin with Santana, Peralta, and a team with a bird as a logo. That's all I can say.

They said on the radio that the cubs have only been shut out in back to back games once in their history and the first time on back to back days.
