Jay Kirk Baseball Thread since 2017: The 2020 season, Nationals Repeat?

Recommended Posts

Cubs lost, only a game out of 1st though in the NLCentral so need to panic. Rockies are real tough this season, who would've thought that? Cubs are in a real winnable Division which after the pressure they had last season to win it all, they deserve that. Had the Cubs not won it all last season everyone would've piled on them after going 103-58.

2017 Cubs pitching is not what 2016 was. Schwarber is in  major slump hitting under 200. Yet they are hanging tuff with Milwaukee. It's early June, a long way to go The season shocker has to be the Astros. Their numbers are off the scale.

Yeah Kyle S is really struggling and I agree the Pitching isn't near as great either. Tough to top last season in reality but the Cubs still have a chance to Repeat. Just have to get into the Playoffs, then anything can happen.

:facepalm: Yep just great PT I'm quickly not being a fan of Matheny's managing , last night not on him , but they have been in many games lately, even with leads and his hesitance to pull a pitcher especially in lets say the seventh to me is mind boggling . There are not very many pitchers out there capable of completing games , its the nature of the game. If he doesn't pull his head out of his A.. I'm fine with him being gone. Another thing troubling to me is I see players joking with opposing players when a games on the line. This to me doesn't cut it, time to put on the game face and play. In listening to Edmonds as an analyst I know he has no experience but definitely understands the game and he definitely has the fire. The Cards have plenty of talent on team and even in the farm , to me its time to put their feet to the fire. This isn't a good ole boys club its a business and needs to be addressed as such.

Just heard on Cubs game broadcast that Cardinals have announced a press conference later today? You might get your wish.....

Yeah the Rockies are for real. There's a good chance they'll win the NL West. My Sox play the Indians tonight. Oh boy

Great effort by the Cubs today but they fall short (5-3 Rockies). Cubs had bases loaded in the 9th but as usual couldn't convert. Been a problem all season!

Not sure how this will help looks like they found some scapegoats 

I would say Matheny is on the hot seat and IMO scapegoat is right Matheny wanted to be ultra aggressive on base path's , and its bit them in the butt several times. Including this 7 game skid. Base coaches were carrying out his wishes. I would've let Matheny go and made David Bell interim . I'm not real happy how they handled this.

I think PT has a message for you. Lol.

 

What about your GM? The Mets announcers said that the Cards gave up Adams for nearly nothing. They thought the Cards could have gotten more.

The GM is going nowhere and they did that out of respect for Adams he wasn't in the long term plans , they didn't feel it was fair for him on bench and had several to fill his shoes.

He has some very interesting moves including signing a 30 yo to a 5+ year contract

Yes the Bullpen other than Rosenthall and Oh has to be addressed , I would cut Cecil terrible signing so far unless he does a 180

They also need to put Wacha in pen for relief work 3 to 4 innings effective after that get him out. They have a young gun to bring up from AA that will do nicely in the rotation.

Maybe it is because he was a catcher but Matheny tends to stay with pitchers too long

Mets are up on the Braves 1-0. Harvey has thrown 85 pitches starting the 5th inning. Hope he makes it out of this inning.

That is a good point but hasn't he won a World Series already?
