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.

"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.

    • Could anything be more stressful than the last time we played them ?  I think they could have scored in the 70's if they so desired.  
    • Wide Receivers    1a. Robby Anderson (26) - Alternative if Ballard can't land Cooper. His touchdown production is a little down this year but I love the way this guy plays. I can see him getting a similar deal that Tyrell Williams got from the Raiders.    1b. Nelson Algholor (26) - Again, another alternative if Ballard can't land either Cooper or Anderson. He has worn out his welcome in Philly and I don't think they'll bring him back.  I don't know if its Wentz, Pederson, or whoever is not getting this guy the ball this season. His best years was when Frank was his offensive coordinator. With Frank, this guy can be close to a 1000 yard receiver.      Defensive Tackles      1a. Chris Jones (25) - Easily the best Defensive Tackle in this free agent class. Ballard has to do everything he can to sign this guy.    1b. Jordan Phillips (27) - The Bills have one of the most underrated defensive units in the NFL. This guy is one of the reasons they're stout up front.      Cornerbacks   1a. Byron Jones (27) - What would it take to get this guy? He's been a solid CB his entire career. Its a long shot though because the Cowboys can't afford to lose him given who else they have at CB. They might be desperate enough to tag him.     
    • Have any of you seen this picture. Iol.     
    • you mean being one of the top defensive players in the league? 
    • He has shown touch. We just don’t see it on a consistent basis. The TD pass to pascal and the two point conversion were beautiful last week. Ir seems he struggles between the 20’s with it.  He had a great TD pass to Campbell early in the year. It’s just inconsistent.
