Agreed on both accounts....I really like Bryant, and so what if there's cameras around for Rizzo's Charitable events. As long as he's using his public persona to improve the lives of others then I don't really care if his brand improves because of it.

For the most part, guys on the Cubs like Bryant and Rizzo seem like they're very good human beings, which is what makes me hate them even more.

What about the role played by ABC, WGN, Fox, NBC Sports Chicago, Giordano’s, Buona Beef, etc. in sending the cameras there? I doubt Rizzo himself owns a news truck.

Haven't we gotten over this since 2016? I don't want them to win, either, but they're very good, have actually underperformed so far, and will likely win the division. Save the ire for the playoffs.

I agree that St. Louis isn't for real this year but this was the first series the Cubs won against the Cardinals this season. Cubs are 3-5 against St. Louis so far this year.

The Cubbies pitching as it stands right now is not good enough to win the WS much less the NLCS.

I have a serious case of “Cub fan fatigue.” This bull**** has run its course. Enough is enough already.

With their talent, with their money and with that bad a division...it won't be ending soon.

I also have Cub fan fatigue. And I'm fatigued of having nothing to come back with, because the Sox are terrible.

Cubs fans are just like Boston fans: sore winners, very entitled.

Blown save by Wilson. LA wins 4-3. Not sure why Morrow wasn’t in.

Morrow has tightness in his back. Been missing for a couple of weeks, I hear.

I'm not sure why Bryant wasn't guarding the line with the winning run going to score on an extra base hit. But I'm not the genius on this.
