  1. I am 60. Jodie Davis and Leon Durham played for the Cubs when I watched their games. Yes, Bernard Gilkey also played in Louisville before going to St. Louis. There were several others who came through Louisville on the way to St. Louis, but those I listed are some of the more familiar names. Living near or in a minor league city that has a AAA team (Louisville, KY) is great because it's the last step before the majors. Louisville became the Reds AAA affiliate several years ago and it made sense because Cincinnati is only about 100 up the interstate. I've seen Joey V

  2. I think most are just frustrated.... period. I agree with what All that you said. Personally, it doesn't frustrate me that they are opting out, more that i see the season slipping away. We brought in Rivers and Buckner. Added exciting weapons in Pittman and Taylor and i think most here were excited about our chances. Its emotional. I think some are voicing frustration toward players only because who else are you gonna yell at? The “invisible“ enemy? In the end , i personally dont think it will matter. I see the league shutting things down after 2 or 3 weeks. At most. Tr

  3. As a fan, if a player that I think will really help the team opts out, it's disappointing. From a human standpoint, I get it.

  4. To me Mattingly was the type of hitter that anyone would want. Back in the day - he, Boggs, and Gwynn were automatic.

  6. We(Indianapolis Indians) used to be AAA team of the: Expos 1984-1992 Reds 1968-1983, 1993-1999 and a bunch of other years Brewers 2000- 2004 Pirates 2005-current, 1948-1951 White Sox 1957-1959, 1962-1967 Phillies 1960 Indians 1952-1956 Boston Braves 1946-1947 Not sute of your time frame, bit from sounds of it, Im guessing 2005-current My first Indians days we were Expos affiliate Indianapolis Indians have a very rich history, some of the names to pass through are great.

  7. I agree with this. I think last years team would have been good enough with the addition of Rivers to make the playoffs. He doesn't even need to be all that good. Just consistent. As long as he doesn't try and play hero ball the Colts are in good hands. Hell... maybe he will surprise everyone with his abilities. He's 38? Honestly a lot of guys were still great at that age (not elite). And I think the media has really unfairly judged him on one struggling season. Which I truly can't understand why.... they need someone to talk down about i guess. They want to give Brady every excus

  8. I think if I had stayed in IN when I was beginning to watch baseball it would have been between Reds, Cubs, and Pirates since triple A. But by the time I was 10 I had moved. When I am in STL next year I will probably try to attend as many of the Cubs/Cards series as possible since there are 10 games and I'm 15 minutes from Busch at that point

  11. @2006Coltsbestever I became one just due to proximity and the fact the Peoria Chiefs, where I am still living, were the Cubs affiliate at the time I started watching baseball like 12 years ago. If not for that IDK who I would be. I am going to be living in STL though in a couple months time though

  12. That is how I became a Cub fan as well. I got cable tv in 1984 and the Cubs were always on WGN with Harry calling games and I got addicted. The 1984 team was great too (fun year) and should've been in the WS but blew a 2-0 nothing lead in the NLCS. I loved Ryne Sandberg and Rick Sutcliffe. In 1987 the Cubs were mediocre but Andre Dawson won NL MVP and once again the Cubs were fun to watch. I just stayed a fan since then even through the lean years and there have been many. Finally in 2015 the Cubs became a powerhouse and have been since then winning a WS in 2016. Off year last year but 84-78 w

  14. I had a street bike in the 70's.Decided would sell it and was riding it for the last time to store it for the winter at my brother's. On the way a lady turned left in front of me leaving me no path to escape as cars in the opposite bound lane ,she across my lane and car in the side road she was turning into. Ended up smacking her in the side throwing me across her car onto the road. No VISIBLE injury, but torn nerves across shoulder resulting in loss of use of arm, and amputation 2 yrs later. Chronic pain from the nerve injury ever since. Thank God NC had a helmet law. My helmet was cracked. W

  15. I know we want to see the chemistry of Rivers with Reich/Sirianni but it would also be good to see some highlights of the 2018 season when he lit it up, he read blitzes well, made excellent red zone reads, moved in and around the pocket well, led his pass catchers well etc.. Guys, this is just 1 year removed from last season, I expect him to be good this year.

  16. Some of you guys crack me up. Rivers was not signed to be the future of this team. Hopefully we all understand he is a 1-2 yr stop gap until we find the future franchise QB. To think that because he is 38 that he can't play is silly. Some of you thought we should go after an even older Tom Cheater. Rivers can play, he a smart vet, a good leader and motivator. Guys will rally around him, he knows the system, has excelled in this system and has almost all the pieces to take it to Feb. He doesnt have to win games by himself. The FO knew this team is prim

  20. Besides Jacob deGrom, the 2020 Mets are awful. I do like the new manager. He thinks outside the box and does not kowtow to players like Cespedes. Time to get ready for work. Have a great day, folks. Hope all is going well with the school, @RollerColt. Stay safe.

  21. Funny thing is, as long as the bats are connecting and your starters are firing, you almost don't need someone of his caliber except for a game here or there. If this season continues, I think the Cubbies have a really good chance this year. I'd love to see them smack around the Yankees!

  22. There are some Yankees fans here but they don't post comments in this thread. You should become friendly with Coltsfansince65. He is a loyal Yankees fan. How did you become a Yankees fan? I became a Mets fan as a teen around the time that they won their last World Series. I have been a fan since. I recall my young nephew in October or November of 2000 telling me that I should become a Yankees fan because the Mets lost to the Yankees in the World Series. I replied, "No way. I'm a Mets fan!" I taught him a lesson in loyalty.

  23. This is fantastic. Thank you for sharing. You must be around my age or maybe older. I don't believe I know Durham and Jodie Davis, but Van Slyke, McGee, Ziele, Benes, Coleman, etc are all guys I am very familiar with. The person who got me interested in baseball was a Cardinals fan. That was in the days of Ozzie Smith, Worrell, Daley, Jose DeLeon, Oquendo, Peña, Guerrero, McGee, etc. (Late 1980's) You mentioned Lankford. He played with Bernard Gilkey. I met Gilkey when he was a Met. This was at Spring Training in Florida. Back then, it was a lot easier to engage with p

  24. Curious, when has a team willingly let a QB go to a division rival without exhausting all measures and stops? Even GB wouldn't let Favre hang in the NFC, let alone go to the Vikings (though he eventually got there anyway). I do not see it coming to fruition.

  28. Fan forums are used by members with opinions. You can agree with the opinion or choose not to agree. Either way, it's fine. But to think one's opinion is lesser than yours can get upsetting. There is no correct call here. These players are doing what they think is right for them and their families. The team hurts a bit but in the end, it's just football. This year is going to be wacky no matter what.

  29. As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan. But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan. This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV. Our TV provider had WGN and since I had morning classes, I could go home and watch Cubs games in the afternoon since Wrigley didn't get lights until 1988. I really enjoyed those teams...Sandberg, Jodie Davis, Leon Durham, etc. The best part was listening to Harry Caray call the games...he was one of a kind and made watching so much fun. In April 1983, me and a couple of friends made a road trip from sou

  30. If Tucker keeps it up until he is 47, and IF his stats are better than Vinny at 47, AND if he ends up with 5+ ... THEN we can talk about Tucker being the GOAT.. OH, and he has to make a kick more iconic, memorable, and deserving of a nickname than "the snow kick", because if you type "the snow kick" into google, guess what the first thing to pop up is?!? ... yeah, that's right... And guess what's second? (say what you want about the Pagano/Grigson era, that game in Buffalo was one of the best things to ever happen in the NFL, there's nothing that comp

  32. Yeah, even with someone like Watson, you like his toughness (both mental and physical) he doesn't have a monster arm but he has good arm and he is improving as well. Even last year, he still looks like a primarily first read QB. And if his first read isn't open and there is a rush, he panics (One of the big reasons why I'm not a Eason fan).

  33. See above on explanation of Jackson. And IMO Watson is one of the most over-rated players in the league and Matt Ryan is pretty much the same as Rivers, so one or the other the results will be the same.

  34. I think right now the Yankees are the only team I fear. Of course they have Chap . That team is loaded though. Cubs are so strong mentally with players like Rizzo, MVP(KB), Baez, and the pitching is strong so far that I think we could take the Yankees out.

  35. I debated about that one, TBH. I know he had a great season but I only watched him a couple of times, against KC early in the season and against the Titans in the playoffs. In those games, as a football player he is impressive, speed, stronger than you'd think, reads the field well while running, and fearless, all excellent traits but as a QB he is not accurate in that critical 8-12 yard range and his progressions are usually limited to half the field. So when comparing him to Rivers as a QB, he is not as good. On the flip side of that, if I had to pick one for a team I'd probably go with J

  36. True in Lamar's first year in the league, but not last year.... but even if it was true for last year, I'm just going to leave these stats here:.... L. Jackson 2019 passing stats: 401 attempts - 3,127 yards (avg 7.8) - 36 TD - 6 INTs - Passer rating: 113.3 P. Rivers 2019 passing stats: 591 attempts - 4,615 yards (avg 7.8) - 23 TD - 20 INTs - Passer rating: 88.5 I know which QB i'd prefer.... especially as this ignores Lamar's value as a runner and elusiveness.

  38. Thats less than ideal. If there is a group that we cannot afford losing rotational players from it's the secondary. I don't blame them, they have to do what they have to do for their own and their family safety, but it sucks for the team.

  39. I'm not frustrated like that, I'm more caught off-guard it was him out of everyone. I realize that people are going to opt-out and I respect their decisions. I already told NCF this in another thread. Maybe your blind hate of me (and you do hate me) is making you biased of what I said.

  41. Just the mere mention of this possibility is pretty divisive in it's way. I don't really see him coming back though. It only made sense to retire when and the way he did if he's truly over getting beat up for a game, a not one more minute kinda thing. That said, people aren't so easy to peg down and I'd have to imagine that if you had the ability to be top flight athlete and paid like one, there's always going to be that internal dialog about "what the hell am I doing!?", if you're not living up to that.

  42. Darius is a far better athlete with much more raw ability than Brackett. He does play ILB from time to time, but that's not very common. Darius is a tall, rangy, speedy, athletic guy who is a bit on the light side for an NFL LBer. Brackett was 5'11" 235 lbs (so short for an NFL LBer and a bit heavier than Leonard). Brackett certainly wasn't known for his athleticism, he was more of a hard worker who had good instincts and put him in solid position to make plays. Leonard, in 2 years, has already been an all-pro twice and a pro-bowler 1x. Brackett never achieved either of thos

  44. Unless I'm mistaken, he would have a 3-year contract left once he opts to come back from retirement. At least in Gronk's case, the 1 year contract left was frozen the year he retired and he's playing out that year now with the Bucs.

  45. True. The problem is when people do stupid things that cause the rest of us to bail them out. Smokers and the obese increase health care costs for us all, for example. Anyway, back to the Colts and Mudd. I hope he recovers soon. The older you get, the harder it is to bounce back.

  46. PA has no helmet law either now. CRAZY really. People in this state have 20 guns each for “protection” , but they dont see the value in helmets, or masks for that matter. I dont think “we’ll” be winning the national state intelligence olympics any time soon. We’re damn good at huntin’, fishin’, bowlin’ , and loud obnoxious diesel pickup buildin’ tho. Maybe they could be worked in as events.
