All MLB 2019 Red Sox Repeat ?

Recommended Posts

Can't hold a 5-1 lead with 1 out in the 9th, that is complete garbage. Cards lost as well but at this point it doesn't even matter. We aren't winning crap this season. How does a team blow a 5-1 lead in the 9th inning with 1 out? Worse lost of the season and it's not even close. Our bullpen just flat stinks, telling it like it is. Nobody blows that kind of lead in 1 inning.

We might end up having to eat crow in the Darvish/Arrietta deal my friend. Yu is looking like the player Theo wanted all along. 10 strikeouts tonight, hasn’t had a walk in over 4 starts...not too shabby! Arrietta is hurt and out for season, kind of a flip flop of last season.  Time will tell.

 

Can we give PT some :applause::applause:??  

 

PT is the Princeton, IN man. :)

I am like one of the most positive persons you will ever meet and tonight was just a disaster. We can't hold a 5-0 lead. Something isn't right with this team, bullpen is an obvious problem but something else is going on IMO. If we do not get our act together, we will be watching the post season from our couches.

I'd be more happy had the Reds not beat my Cards,  but I was thinking we would go down a game to the Cubs.

Last night was terrible. I do not want to jinx it but hey we play the craptastic Pirates now lmao . If we can't win 2 out 3 vs them then we are toast. After these 3 games, that will make 64 on the road and just 60 at home. Cards and Cubs still tied for 1st as of August 16th.

1-0 Pirates in the 6th. Hendricks having a decent night, bats have gone silent....again.

 

In other Cubs news, Russell was recalled from Iowa, Almora sent down. I don't like that move, although sometimes I feel the whole team should be sent down.

2-2 bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, bases loaded. Kintzler walks the tying run in a second ago. I have a sick feeling this is not going to end well against the Pirates. Bote with a crucial error earlier, he’s been making a lot of those lately.

The Cardinals beat the Reds.   Cards are 1 game up on the Cubs.

I'd still put my money on the Cubs winning the division.  That much talent on a team has to put it together.   The Cards are a just over .500 roster.   Historical numbers show the Cubs should have a better batting average. 

Cubs team batting average - .254

Cards team batting average - .242

 

Cubs team ERA - 4.12

Cards team ERA - 4.00

There is a major funk in that clubhouse, somethings got to shake out. I think big changes could be coming. The Cards are a dangerous team that are getting hot at the right time, as are the Reds.

Problem is we are not winning the close games, we win games big but then lose a lot of close one's like tonight. The Bullpen strikes again :wall:

We are now up 2-0 in the 9th. We need this win badly. A win here and a Cards loss and we would be tied for 1st again despite the shenanigans that have been going on.

This year's crop of major free agent relievers has been a $250 million disaster

If any fans feel annoyed this offseason about their team for not spending to strengthen the bullpen, they might want to go ahead and look at what is happening this year....

(read article for more)

 

The article goes on to show that almost all the relievers that got big contracts are doing poorly. The two that have performed well are Yankees relievers (Britton and Ottavino?). The author blames this partly on the juiced ball.

Reds seem to give other teams a lot of trouble. 

 

Speaking of juiced ball, Pete Alonso has hit 39 HRs and this rookie player for the Reds is the fastest to 11 HR. @hippiejohn must be ecatatic.

Rizzo with a huge blast! He put a light out haha . Cubs playing Cubs baseball, up 7-0 tonight. Go ahead and fly the flag Hozer, this baby is over already  lmao . I never call it this early but we are not blowing this lead. 7-0 to the bottom of the 5th.

 

After the 10 game road trip we will be tied for 1st in the NL Central. That is really all I wanted because the Cards have had an easy schedule while have been on the road for nearly 2 weeks. We will now have 6 straight at home where we are a different animal baby!

Cubs 10 game road trip over, thankfully. Cubs get a much needed rest tomorrow and do not play on Monday. Next 3 games are against the Giants at Wrigley. Hamels pitches Tuesday :thmup:

So....Cubs shut the Pirates out into the bottom of the 9th with another stellar Quintana outing,  Kimbrell our Supertstar closer comes in and gives up a home run in his first pitch. Now Strop is in, lmao, if the bullpen gives this game up I will blow a gasket!

 

 

*update....game over Cubs win, whew!!!

Lol ill raise your Cubs and hand me the Cards . Cards have a very important factor besides a very dangerous line up. The third best bull pen in the MLB . Anything can happen , and if they bench Carpenter for the hot hand , it bolsters their offense greatly. They wont wait long to do it. My guess if he doesn't pick it during current series.

It's 50/50 at this point on who wins the division IMO. It will come down to the head to head games these 2 teams play at the end of the season. I still lean toward the Cards winning the division because their pitching is slightly better and their lineup is just as good. Both lineup's are dangerous. Cubs at worse should get in as a Wildcard.

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
