Cards continue to pursue the International market         https://sports.yahoo.com/news/end-cuban-revolution-coming-soon-luis-roberts-signing-014518825.html

 

I hope they can make it happen.    The team is loaded with slightly above average talent, but lacking top 10 talent.   Molina may still be the best on the team, but he is losing a step.

Butler's control is iffy early. 2 walks already! Brew Crew with 2 on in the 1st Inning but now 2 Outs. Throwing way too many Pitches so far though.

Cubs now lead 3-2, should've scored more in that Inning though! I would've had Baez swing away with bases loaded and no Outs. 2 straight Outs on Bunts actually. Maddon being a nutty scientist again LOL.

Cool to see Kerry Wood announcing up in the booth. He was one of my favorite Cubs. He is great at this announcing stuff! Brew Crew back up 4-3, Cubs should've scored more in the 4th, that may come back to haunt them. Rains are coming down hard.

Yes he seemed shaky to start in Cards game , but they settled him down. He does have good stuff.

Let's see if the Mets can turn it around before June 1st. We have our best healthy pitcher going today. We scored a run in the 1st and made the opposing pitcher work (26 pitches). It is 1-0 in the top of the 2nd.

 

We need a win tonight. :beg:

Yanks up 2-1 vs the Rays top of 5th. Severino is laboring but working through it. He has thrown too many pitches. Has had a full count on 4 batters so far. Baby sitting our grandson so he's watching with me.

No help today, just bad Butler and bad Pitching again as a whole.

The Brew Crew have a very good team. They swept the Mets, scoring what seemed like 100 runs without Ryan Braun. 

 

Did Braun play today? I heard he might be traded to the Dodgers. Why now when they have a good chance to win the division?

In my opinion they have no chance to win the division the bats wont carry them that far , I don't think the pitching overall is not good enough. Just my opinion.

The Mets won 3-0 over the Angels. That is our first shutout since Opening Day when Syndergaard and the bullpen shut out the Braves.

 

Nice to see the manager stick with deGrom in the 7th when he had the bases loaded and no outs. He got the next 3 guys out without giving up a run.

That's something Warren couldn't do tonight.

You may be right. But they can trade for pitching.

If they do they don't have the depth to replace position players.

They don't have a great Farm System. I will stay with what I said it will come down to the Cubs and Cards.

I am not a fan of Ryan Braun. I would never want him on my team after what he did to that drug test collector.

    •     Part of me wishes my Mom had the same attitude as you.  I wanted to play so bad, I just needed the support of my family, both morally and financially.  I wanted to be a DB, and I think I would have been pretty good.   But part of me knows I wouldn't be able to pursue my current pursuits in life, both emotionally and intellectually, if I had suffered multiple concussions before I had fully developed mentally.   This is a mucked up issue.  
    • If he wanted to, absolutely. 
    •   Unfortunately, No Fortunately, we of advanced age remember Cortez.  Even if we remember him unfondly.  Had he been a Colt, he would be remembered as a favorite.   I hate to sound my age, but the day will come where the only players we remember (and this is especially an Indy problem) are the Mannings and the Harrisons.   It is an especially Indy problem that we forget defensive greats like Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney.  Such is the greatness of Cortez.  Only the people of the Grunge movement will truly appreciate his greatness.
    •   Didn't see this posted anywhere so I thought I would make it official here....   Former Seattle DT, Cortez Kennedy, a Hall of Fame player,  has died unexpectedly at age 48.   So far,   there are no reports of an illness like cancer,  or a suicide or foul play.     It's not known why he died.     I would expect authorities will do a full autopsy....   Here's your sad story.....   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000810542/article/hall-of-famer-seahawks-great-cortez-kennedy-dead-at-48   Jeff Saturday spoke glowingly of Kennedy yesterday morning on ESPN,   and if you're too young to remember him,   think perhaps of Gerald McCoy of Tampa.    Strong, fast, quick,  relentless...   RIP Cortz Kennedy
    •     I think, for most people, at least anyone that played high school sports, the worst injury of their life probably came during that daring, inexplicable time.   I didn't play football, but I played just about every other sport that my parents were willing to pay for. (Football equipment was expensive back then, compared to other sports)  And I sacrificed my body for the team.   One coach, I won't say which one, wanted me to take performance-enhancing drugs to improve my abilities.  Sadly, I did, and it helped, but it led to the most devastating injury I have ever experienced.   I'm not taking the moral high-ground or justifying my athletic aspirations, but coaches, even at the high-school level, heck, even middle-school these days, are pushing their athletes to take short-cuts.   Bottom-line:  If you are a parent, and care about your kids' development, don't let them get too close to an ambitious coach.  Sometimes, winning is more important than the personal development of young folks.
