I think, depending on how much games Andrew plays, we will go somewhere between 6 - 10 to 8-8. And i would be ok with this. It will take time till everything is working and clicking with the new staff and schemes they install. Even 8-8 would still give us a great draft position next year. 2019 should be the year with a winning record and playoff spot. I'm just hoping to see progression this season and a better playcalling than the last couple seasons.
With the BrewCrew law of averages will set in, somehow we have owned them but they are just as capable of beating the Cubs 3 straight IMO. Thankfully the Cubs have beat them for the most part so far otherwise they would be like 5 or 6 games out.
Cards take 2 of 3 in Pittsburg , will take it and be glad. My much awaited day comes Wednesday when Alex Reyes takes the hill against the Brew Crew . We need to take at least two of these three games to real them in a bit they have been red hot.
I hope you are right. They just look better to me compared to last year and we don't look as good. Yeah we have beat them this year 6 out of 7 games but they have beat teams that we have no business losing too. Cubs have lost games to the freakin Reds, Marlins, and WhiteSox this year. We just dropped one to the Giants yesterday. Stuff is just frustrating and silly.
Glad you posted this . A friend of mine a Reds fan but a baseball fan like the rest of us , were having a discussion about Darvish . Allthough we both did not think he was an Ace but # 2 or 3 material we both suspicioned he was injured and something was not right , because we both know he is not this bad of a pitcher . This answers our question thanks for posting this brother .
I wouldn't take him now, for sure.
He has some serious issues.... I won't speculate over whether it might be mental illness, CTE, or drug abuse, but he definitely has an issue that will need to be addressed before a team will/should sign him.
I've read the phrase "basket case" on this forum with regard to many players and potential FA signings. In most cases, I've agreed that the player isn't a good culture/locker room fit. Incognito is the absolute epitome of those sentiments, though.
Regardless of what his actual issues are, no team has been able to help curb them and they have gotten progressively worse. Medical intervention is likely in order at this point. More hits to the head is not what he would appear to need at this stage of his life... not to mention the internal medical issues he has been facing with his liver and kidneys.
I don't think any GM will touch this dude with a 10 ft. pole... Not this season, and probably not ever again.
I think Luck plays before that. I don’t disagree that he will have a lot of rust to chip off and might miss the first couple of games. After that, I think he plays. But the Colts’ schedule is tough. If they are 8-8, with a rebounding Luck, that will bode well for 2019. Which is the year everyone will take notice of the Colts again. 2018 is a box of chocolates but the Colts will begin to rebound.
OK..... I"ll play along....
I'm in the small camp (me) that thinks that Luck doesn't play until the halfway point of the season, which this year, is the Bye Week.
So, I'm predicting that Brissett takes us to 3-5 at the break. Then Luck takes over and goes 5-3 in the 2nd half which includes 5 of our 6 conference games.
We finish 8-8. And I think by the end of the season we're a team that other teams are taking notice of and are not looking forward to playing in 2019.
8-8 in 2018.
Likely 10-6, maybe better in 2019.
My new Top 4 ever = Jordan 1, Magic 2, Kareem 3, LeBron 4. So now everyone that thinks I diss LeBron can at least not call me hater. I put him ahead of Kobe, Wilt, Bird, Shaq, Duncan, Russell. Making 8 straight Finals, winning 3 Championships, and his overall Stats has him at 4 on my list. His Finals record is still MEH but a lot of that isn't his fault.
i agree with what you wrote, but im not ready to say what i think is most likely
10-6 might be a little optimistic but its not crazy. if luck does miss a bunch of games then id think he is nearing the end
I can’t get the kid/sports nut out off me! Yup up bright and early to watch the Indy 500 on TV. Thought I’d out grow the getting up early thing but now it beats listening to the 500 on my transitor radio - LOL! Even better I’m able to watch it in color instead of black/white
