Reds looking good. That’s the team I grew up watching on a daily basis. Brian Price was terrible. I was glad when they got rid of him. David Bell has been alright. Frankly, I think Reds are winning in spite of him

The whole Central is up in the air IMO. The Cubs, Cards, and Brewers keep blowing games they should win. Reds are up and coming and very talented.

The Reds are doing well. That is good to see.

 

Who is Irvin? A Mets fan said he wants to trade for this guy because the Reds are not using him and the Mets fan thinks Irvin has some value. I know nothing about him. Any thoughts?

 

Btw, nice to see you posting here again, @Luck is Good.

He’s been good this year when given playing time. Came up with some timely hits last Sunday against Cubs. Made a really nice catch on Thursday to help seal a series win against Brewers. How about that NL East? Phillies have been a disappointment up to this point

If you remember I picked the Braves to win that division before the season started. Phills getting Harper did not wow me.

No I don’t remember that. I haven’t been on here for a bit. A person could tell the Braves were going to be good. Not over yet though

Yeah me too. I am thinking 1-1 as well. I am not sure who wins what game though? Then the all-star break will be here, already.

Thanks. Do you think the Reds would part with him for a starting pitcher?

The Mets have helped the Phillies have life. Without the wins against the Mets, the Phillies would be way behind. 

 

Harper has been a disappointment for them.

I have no idea if they would do a deal for that. As for Harper, it’d be absolutely embarrassing if the Nationals make the postseason and the Phillies don’t make it

Philip Irvin is a former first round draft pick who kind of stalled in the minors. He has been up and downbut the last 2 years he has performed well when playing. If he could continue this as a regular who knows?

Yeah we took game 1 over the Sox and now back in 1st place in the NL Central. Glad to see Kimbrel get the save after the other night. Brewers and Cards both lost. 1 more game then the all-star break. NL Central standings as of now look like this:

 

Cubs 47-42

Brewers 47-43 (.5 back)

Cards 44-43 (2 back)

Pirates 43-45 (3.5 back)

Reds 41-45 (4.5 back)

I saw that last night. Hope Arietta gets suspended. He hit 3 of our guys yesterday and then threatens my man Todd after the game. What a (you know what)! I hope Todd stays classy and ignores him.

 

Glad the Mets beat him and stood up for Todd. :D

Yeah what Jake said was wrong because people could take that as a threat but I seriously doubt he was serious. In the heat of the moment we all say dumb things. Jake is frustrated because Philly is struggling. I thought Frazier overreacted when he got hit by Jake. It wasn't close to his head and Frazier went nuts. I like Frazier as a player though. Jake is one of the best pitchers ever in Cubs history. Yu sucks lmao .

I think he said something to the umpire to get kicked out but he had every reason to be upset. If you check, Mets players have been hit more than players on any other NL team. They need a leader to say this can't continue.

 

Then Jake went on to hit another player despite having been warned. The Mets hit him right back. The right way. Lol.

That is fair enough. I can see why he would want to fire up the Mets. Maddon did it the other night at Pitt. It fired the Cubs up.

Todd's reply to Jake's threat:

 

“He can say what he wants. I am just sick of getting hit, especially by this team.”

 

Much more classy than threatening an opposing player.

I read the link and I don't blame Frazier for being upset. Those teams sound like they have a bad history with this. When the Cubs play Pitt, we have a problem with them hitting our guys as well. That is why Maddon lost it the other night. After Frazier got hit he was angry and Jake was actually calm looking at him like what lmao . Jake hit him with a change up in the arm. After Frazier got kicked out he was cussing and threw his helmet in the dug out. I think Jake wasn't intentionally trying to hit him. Had Jake hit him in the head with a fastball I could see Frazier losing his cool then, 

 

It is what Jake said after the game where he was wrong.

If Jake hit him in the head, Todd would not be going nuts. 

 

Jake hit 3 guys yesterday. How many more should he hit before he realizes that the other team will not take too kindly to that. Sorry, I can't defend Jake. Todd is as nice a guy as you can find.

The Umpires apparently did, they ejected him.

 

What Jake said was probably uncalled for, and out of frustration, but he doesn’t take crap from anyone either. He calmly stood there, Nothing more. If he wanted to hit him on purpose, it wouldn’t have been to the elbow. 

 

Cubs get hit all the time, Rizzo especially due to him crowding the plate. They all take their free base with class, and let Madden do the talking, lol!

Lol. Of course Arietta calmly stood there. He was not the one hit. 

 

The Mets lead the league in hit batters and it isn't because they are crowding the plate.

What I meant was if you act dumb after being warned then you’ll get tossed, the Umpires won’t put up with it. Again, if Arrietta meant to hit him it wouldn’t have been the elbow.

 

And last year it was Tampa Bay that led the League in hit by pitches, year before Pittsburg, and before that the Cubs. It’s frustrating, I get it, but to think it’s some type of conspiracy by all teams against one team is silly. Maybe if there’s personal beef between two teams then yes, as there was last week between Cubs/Pirates and maybe yesterday between Mets/Phillies.

Who said it was a conspiracy?

 

The players get frustrated when they are repeatedly getting hit. Phillies have hit Mets players 12 times so far this year. And they are one of our biggest rivals because of proximity of the two cities and being in the same division. Arietta hit 3 Mets players yesterday. 

 

So are you saying that players should not get upset for getting hit by a pitch? I'm sure there have been Cubs who have charged the mound in Cubs history.  From the time I began watching baseball, I have seen players retaliate for getting hit.

That's a lot for one year it sounds a lot  like Baker and Larussa  . Baker team would hit a Card . You knew retaliation was coming . In all honesty you have to do it to protect teammate .

They have two more series to go. Coming into this game, the Phillies had hit the Mets 12 times and the Mets hit them six times. The Mets hit Hoskins on the leg today. Then he hit a HR in his next at bat. That's a way to retaliate. 

 

How is Goldy doing?

Yes, there have been Cubs players that have retaliated, never said they haven’t. Of course they should be angry, it hurts, and could even put you on the IL. Say your piece and take your free base. Rush the mound or press the issue, and now you’re out of the game, and no longer able to help your team. Not smart. It’s stupid for pitchers to purposely hit anyone, you’re giving up a free base, risking someone’s health, and essentially walking someone. Then there’s some pitchers who admit to pitching up and inside to try to throw off batters, but not hit them. Sometimes crap just happens.

My guess is @NFLfan is more bothered by what Jake said after the game. IMO Jake did not intentionally hit Frazier though, he was just wild yesterday.

    • Two things, I'm glad AV had a good game, it was needed for the Colts and him.  But one good game does not erase the two really, really bad games he has had this year.   Two, I'm not sure where the "we" comment came from.  Personally, I don't use pronouns like "we", "us", or "our" when referring to the Colts.  The reason is simple, I am not doing anything to contribute to the wins or losses.  I spend money, but I do that at a lot of places.  I pay my electric bill every month, but when I call them I don't say, "We need to lower our rates."  Same reason I do not buy "authentic" jerseys.  Those guys work hard to earn that jersey, to me it cheapens it if I were to go buy one.   That being said, I know the owner likes that fans say things and "we" and "our".  They are literally banking on that type of fan.  And I'm sure that some players get weekly or monthly reports to see how their jersey sales are going.   of course, I don't knock other people who say "we" or "our", nor people who buy jerseys, it's just how I feel.
    • Some pretty preposterous things are being thrown around here. I'd advise against bringing up this comparison if you want to feel good about our QB in the long run. 
    • When was his arthroscope done, earlier today?  I'd wait on the doctor post surgery to report on how he had to repair it, and the prognosis. Maybe he already has, and talked to the team doctor, who has relayed the information to Ballard/Reich.  I'm still going to keep an ear out for a couple days, though.
    • Reich said they will have to see how TY progresses during the week to see if he will play.
