  1. I don't know. If we had Thor, I'd say we have a good chance. He is out after having Tommy John surgery. The Braves and Nats are too strong.
  2. True. Which team could that be? Pirates? Reds? Twins? Top two sleepers: Reds and Twins. Are the Twins really sleepers. (I am asking myself.) Don't know.
  3. 60 games is more than 100 fewer games in the season. It will be weird. I don't know what to make of it. However, I will enjoy watching sports for the first time in what seems like years.
  4. That was fantastic. Watching that short clip there gave me chills. I can't remember where I was but I was as excited as Colts fans were. Most football fans were.
  5. Are you serious? Phil Simms has been talking about his son Chris on the radio and television since Chris was in high school. Chris was a top prospect while in college. His father thought he would be a star in the NFL. He was recruited by Mack Brown to the Texas Longhorns (if I am not mistaken) but I think he was either hurt a lot or did not perform well. IIRC, he had to compete against a guy whose name I liked a lot back then -- Major Applewhite. I don't know if Chris Simms ever played in the NFL. His brother Matt Simms played for the Jets. Matt had fans calling for him to start the way Colts fans have clamored for Chad Kelly to be the starter. Matt showed flashes whenever he played in preseason.
  6. @buccolts What is your all-time great Pirates team? Who are the best Bucs players at their position? Does it start with Willie Stargell? Does it include the guys I am familiar with like: Doug Drabek? Van Slyke? Bonds? Jay Bell and Jose Lind? (Just kidding but they make a good double play duo) I remember the 80s and early 90s: Sid Bream, Zane Smith, Bonilla, John Smiley?,
  7. Yeah, that's too bad. We can always talk baseball history. When I was younger, I enjoyed hearing about the history of baseball on the radio. I also enjoyed reading about it here. Whenever you need a good thread to follow, come here. People are nice to each other. Btw, welcome to the Baseball Thread.
  8. Nobody is beating that team. Thanks @2006Coltsbestever. We get a chance to talk sports again.
  9. Mets 3B Howard Johnson loved Todd Worrell. Lol. Whitey Herzog would pull Worrell from the game when HoJo came up to bat.
  10. The Cubs CF that I was thinking of was Jerome Walton. He won the Rookie of the Year award. Maybe that is why I remember him. But he was not great.
  11. From what I remember, Maddux was great with the Cubs. I thought he was a better pitcher with the Clubs than with the Braves but it may be my perception. I thought Maddux was great, especially considering that he was pitching in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Fowler is the second best CF in Cubs history? I would have never guessed. Did the Cubs ever have a CF with the last name of Walton? When I first started to follow baseball consistently, the Cubs had Grace, Sandburg, Dunston, Girardi, Dawson. I can't recall the 3B or the LF. In CF, they had a young kid whose name I believe was Walton. At pitcher, Maddux, Sutcliffe, Mike Bielecki. Do you remember those Cubs?
  12. Jake, Chapman and Bryant are among his favorite of all time. I might take Mark Grace over Rizzo. That's blasphemy around here. Rizzo is godly here and I love the guy, but Grace was a really good player. Who would I put on the Mets all-time team? Seaver over Gooden. David Wright, Gary Carter or Piazza??, Strawberry. I gotta think.
  13. In that case Mets win, Mets win. I always felt bad for Buckner. He received lots of hate mail and death threats (similar to Bartman). It only got better for him when the Red Sox finally won the World Series many years later.
  14. Any idea if and when MLB will have a season? If baseball is not played, I don't know how football will. Baseball is not the contact sport that football is. My friend who is the NY Giants season-ticket holder says that he expects football to be played the whole season but with stadiums empty or partially full. I don't know why baseball cannot do that. I want sports! Let's go Mets.
  15. That would be great. But I would hate a butt whipping like the one we got in 2016. Man, Luck killed us. (I'm a Stanford football fan too.)
  16. Lol. You mean Rivers and the Colts? I'd like that, as I want Rivers to get a ring. I doubt we can win with Cousins. JMO. ;)
  17. I agree with him but you already know that. Lol. Our division is pretty meh this year; so, we may win the division. But I doubt it, as we had too much turnover in players.
  18. Yeah, I would love it, but I doubt we will win more than 9 games. We have too much turnover of starting players on defense. I see the division going something like: Packers -- 11-5 Vikings -- 9-7 Bears -- 8-8 Lions -- 5-11
  19. Disregard that other comment. Anyway, I did see your thread but only after the match. I'm sorry I missed the match. I have been looking for anything sports-related. Hopefully we get something soon. It probably belonged in the same section where the baseball thread and the basketball thread are. But probably no one would have seen it.
  20. Welfare programs do not use their funds to pay celebrities to advertise safety net programs, especially not in Mississippi. It is not done.
  21. It is still not the same. The US Military probably has a budget for advertising and for recruiting. Using welfare funds for a celebrity to make an appearance makes no sense. Was Favre supposed to promote welfare programs or do outreach? I seriously doubt that. Equating that to how the military or non-profits use their funds is wrong.
  22. Wow. I can't see how you see those as being the same as a government program. Those organizations that you are referring to are not government programs. Most, if not all, are 501 (c) (3) organizations. They have the right to pay celebrities if they believe they will get more publicity and more donations. However, paying a celebrity welfare funds to make an appearance is insane. What is the purpose?
  23. I'm more surprised that this would be offered. How do funds set aside for poor families get used for a celebrity to make an "appearance"! It seems that he may not have known that he was being paid from money set aside for welfare/safety net.
