Now it is unfair. A Yankees fan told me that he hopes Judge does not turn out to be Kevin Maas (spelling?).

Yes. Or Shane Spencer.  Your spelling is correct.

Cubs up 6-4 after back to back home runs from Russell and Schwarber!

The MLB draft is this coming week. I was reading about a pitcher who is considered among the top 50 prospects. He is a top pitcher in the draft and plays with Oregon State. It was reported this week that he is registered as a sex offender for molesting a 6-year-old relative when the pitcher was 15.

 

Do you think he will be drafted? What are your thoughts?

Cubs up 6-4, a win here gets us back to .500 at 31-31 and Brewers are losing today so far 1-0. if Brewers lose we are only 1 game out of 1st place again, despite a very inconsistent season so far.

I know nobody is here right now but......Judge just hit one over the bleachers. First one over the bleachers. They say it was at least 500 feet.

 

 

btw, Castro hits another 2 run HR & has 4 hits today. It's 10-3 Yanks in the 6th. They have 4 players with at least 40 RBIs.

I seen it, that was a blast to the moon!

Just read the story from your link. Some team will probably draft him but I'm not sure they should. This will follow him where ever he goes. I don't want to pass judgement & not knowing the details it's impossible to do so. His admission of guilt takes away any doubt that it actually happened. Sad that both parties will have to live with this situation for the rest of their lives.

I too believe a team will draft him but not as early in the draft as he would have been if the news had not been reported. It sounds like he is a dominant pitcher; so, some team will take him.

The Mets won 2-1. They are getting players back from the DL and are playing better.  They play the Cubs the next 3 days and then face their division leaders, the Nats. It won't be easy.

Brewers lost, Cubs now 1 game back in the NL Central with their win today. Glad to see us finally show the Rockies who's boss. Rockies have been embarrassing teams all season.

Brewers 33-31

Cubs 31-31

-Cubs have the Mets coming up starting tomorrow. I want to see more consistency from the damn Pitching in that series.

Looks like the Cubs will take this guy off their draft boards.

 

Quote:

"One American League general manager told Yahoo Sports his team “won’t go anywhere near” Heimlich following the report. Two other teams echoed those sentiments to Yahoo Sports, and Chicago Cubs GM Jed Hoyer told radio station 670-AM in Chicago that Heimlich “will be off our board, I think.” While another GM conceded his team was unlikely to fully remove Heimlich from its pool of potential picks, he said, “I can’t see us taking him.”

Earlier I wondered if he gets drafted at all. His victim was 4 and 6 years old when it happened. SMH. I like to give people second chances but this is hard to explain to fans. 

 

Do you think he will be drafted? I think he will. He could also go pitch for Japan or another baseball league.

I wouldn't mind seeing Cards win 2 of 3 - that would help the Cubs and not hurt them. Nothing dominant as Cards still lose 1 and that kind of would put the Brewers in their overachieving place. It is a 3 game series right?

2-2 would be fine with me then, if Cards won 3-1 though, I would be ok with it actually. Brewers need a few losses. They keep hanging around like little pests lmao

Finally, something SW1 can comment on. This classic routine never gets old. "1 base at a time...Left fielder's name. Why. Because I wanna know...What base do you wanna take about?" Straight comedians are the foundation of timeless routines like this. 

 

Thanks Jay. "Naturally who gets it" indeed. Still hilarious after all these yrs.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
