  1. Well, the Astros and Braves are on the verge of moving onto the World Series, but we know anything can happen. Astros offense is just too much for the Red Sox in this series, so I see them advancing. Can't count out the Dodgers making a comeback, but they've lost J. Turner for the year and he's always been clutch in the playoffs, so he will be missed. I was thinking last evening when Lux didn't didn't make a catch in CF, that the Dodgers spending on big names has forced them to play guys out of their best positions on defense to get them into the lineup. Lux in CF, Seager at 2b, etc. I think we'll see more misplays from LA because they have guys playing out of position. When Lux didn't play CF aggressively last night with 2 outs, it allowed Atlanta to score a run they may have otherwise not had if there was a regular CF in the game. Hoping the Braves can wrap this one up tonight!
  2. 1. Unitas white #19 and Luck blue #12 2. Manning blue #18 (was a gift and the giver didn't realize the sewn on jerseys were better; Rob Morris - blue #94 (purchased at a Colts Caravan event from a bin full of discounted jerseys and shirts. Got it because it was the only one that fit; generic #42 blue that I don't remember where I got it.
  3. Meanwhile, Campbell goes back on IR. He just can't stay healthy. Was he this fragile in college?
  4. Hello all...I was on vacation last week so I'm on here catching up. Shildt firing was a BIG surprise. Will be interesting to see who the Cardinals hire as their new manager. They do like to promote from within, but they also did that with Shildt, so who knows. I hear the Padres are interested in Shildt. As far as the payoffs now, I'm not watching, but do check the scores and watch some highlights. I'm pulling for the Braves...I don't like the other three teams playing now.
  5. I'm intrigued by the Pacers with the hiring of Carlisle. Been a Pacers fan all my life and I think they have a good roster. Should make the playoffs since there's only 2 or 3 really good teams in the East. If we get our guys healthy to add to the current roster, we can win a lot of games.
  6. Cardinals had opportunities...left tons of runners on base and in the end the Dodgers did what they needed to do. Both starting pitchers did well and it ended up a bullpen game. Disappointing, but the Cardinals had a great run down the stretch to get into the WC game. I wish the WC would be a 3 game series...one and done games just don't fly in baseball in my mind. So far, I'm 0-2 in my predictions. Let's go RAYS!
  7. In my mind, the greatest Cardinals game ever!! Freese was a freak in that post season.
  8. My list is: 1. Cardinals 2. Rays 3. Braves 4. White Sox 5. Giants 6. Brewers No rooting interest in Dodgers, Yankees (don't tell my wife), Red Sox or Astros (since they got caught cheating, I liked them before)
  9. Let's Predict the Post-Season: American League Wild Card - Yankees over Red Sox Division Series - Rays over Yankees (Rays have owned NY the past couple of years); White Sox over Astros League Championship - Rays over White Sox National League Wild Card - Cardinals over Dodgers Division Series - Cardinals over Giants (somebody has to pick the Cardinals); Braves over Brewers League Championship - Cardinals over Braves (just going out on a limb...Cardinals are playing very well and getting pitchers back) World Series - Rays over Cardinals (This is finally the year the Rays win it all and the Cardinals Cinderella story ends)
  10. Lamey is a legend in Indy and for Colts fans. I can see the argument both ways as far as the Ring of Honor. An alternative could be to name the Colts Radio broadcast booth the "Bob Lamey Colts Radio Booth" to honor him?
  11. Toronto and Seattle still alive for the AL WC...would love to see both get in and the Yanks and Red Sox watch from home Phillies and Mariners barely alive for division titles, but both facing elimination with Braves and Astros magic numbers at 1.
  12. And with that 17th win we CLINCH the last WC spot in the National League!
  13. I agree we should have run the ball more, we were doing well in the run game. Wentz had no time to throw deeper than 10 yards most of the game.
  14. I admire Wentz's courage and wanting to play in a big divisional game, but the ankle issues were clearly limiting what he could do. No mobility and Tenn. applied heavy pressure all game. If we could have kept Tannehill from running for 60 yards on 3 carries the outcome may have been different. Who knows if Hundley could have done the same for us if he were chased out of the pocket. There are lots more issues than just Wentz's ankles on this team.
  15. !6 straight wins! I saw that when September began, the Cardinals had a 2.9% chance of making the playoffs, it's now at 99% and their magic number to clinch is at 1. They are off today and some have said it will be better to play the Dodgers than the Giants, while others say it doesn't matter in a one game playoff. I just know if the Cardinals win that Wild Card against either the Dodgers OR the Giants, one of those two teams will have a very disappointing end to a 100+ win season. The Rays clinch the AL East Title! Yankees sweep Boston and are 1 game ahead of the Red Sox i the WC, but the Jays are just one back of Boston and Seattle is 2 back. Would love to see either the Jays or Mariners sneak in ahead of Boston or NY.
  16. It's still a one game deal for the Wild Card teams, which to me should be a 3 game series. One and done is baseball doesn't work for me. Here is a link with post season information. https://www.mlb.com/postseason
  17. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Colts game in Louisville, KY!! Although that Bengals-Steelers green is pretty close to Louisville. Seems when we are on CBS the chances of the Colts being on in Louisville increases.
  18. I heard a talk show host on local radio this morning talk about the upcoming changes to college basketball i the next 5 years with the NIL and transfer options now available. He said in 5 years we may see 5-10 super programs that will emerge and then the rest will be also-rans. He mentioned Duke, Kentucky specifically.
  19. News keeps getting better for the Cardinals! Just hope they don't blow it after coming back to get into this position. And, my Rays clinched their playoff spot last night. Fingers crossed for a Cardinals-Rays World Series!!
  20. That's 10 straight wins for the Cardinals! Now a 4 game lead on the Reds.
