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.

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.

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.

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.

Sorry 06. It's a long season. Holiday just tied it at 4 with a 2run HR.

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.

    • Is this a serious comment or a joke?
    •   You should try using Google before posting something like this.  Browns had over $100 Million cap space in March.   Besides, in Madden you can just turn the salary cap OFF.  Boom.  Problem solved. 
    •   Why?      Why should Pagano be gone over an 0-3 start with our top players out?   We're not losing because of Pagano, we're losing because of a lack of talent, especially at key positions like QB.      You're likely going to get what you want, Pagano's last year.    But it may not happen for a few more months.    Then again, you can never tell with a new GM who may decide to make a statement.    
    • I know this isn't the best time for Colts fans.  A SB looks a far way off at the moment.  We are definitely not at the top of the mountain right now, and things are getting a little scrappy in some of the threads.  But I just wanted to thank everyone for their contributions.  Whether you're a new member posting out of frustration with the current situation, or a seasoned vet that has seen this rodeo before and feels the need to defend the Shoe, or some mix of both or all of those (?), I enjoy reading what you have to say (usually).  I may not like all of your opinions (because let's face it, no two people in the world are going to agree about absolutely EVERYTHING) but I respect you for sharing your opinions with all of us.  Let's all just be thankful that we can have this civil discourse as a fanbase.   Even if we lose to the Browns... ()  at home... () ... ... ...   We still have it better than many others, in more ways than one. 
    •  Might not be quite that high but we are looking at just under 73M per Overthecap for 2018, thats not including us rolling over some of the 20M in cap we still have this yr, nor does it factor in any cuts that may happen. Chances are we roll over at least 10M. It also only accounts for a 3M increase in the cap, which isnt official yet (could be more). So 85-90M in cap for this offseason is very well possible.
