As a Reds fan, I know this feeling all too well when it comes to Dusty Baker...

lmao Poor Dusty. Reds do have promise IMO, I like their lineup, just need better Pitching.

We have some rising talent like Schebler, but it will be another couple of years before this team can even think of contending. And I'm okay with that in a way, as it makes the stress lower. I have very low expectations so I can just enjoy the game at the ballpark haha...

The whole Division has talent, Pirates and Brewers are even dangerous. Cards always scare me the most when it comes to the Cubs but anything can happen in Baseball. Regarding this season, the Dodgers are a machine and I just think it's their year.

Oh I agree. I went to the Dodgers - Reds games during Pete Rose weekend in June, and I was blown away by how stacked that team was.

I hope Houston wins this series. I picked LA to win but would love to see Houston win actually because they are a huge underdog. Series is at 1-1 and the next 3 in Houston. That place is a madhouse and Houston usually plays great there. Cant wait for Friday's game.

Wow. I knew Yankees fans were not happy with Joe Girardi but I did not believe he would not return as manager. The Yankees made it much farther than anyone could have expected.  I don't get it.

 

I wonder who will get the job??? @coltsfansince65 @bababooey Who do you want to be the next manager of the Yankees?

 

As for Girardi, I would not be surprised if he was the next manager of the Nationals.

I was not crazy about some of the head scratching moves Girardi has done this season but I wasn't one of those fire his butt fans either. I was mildly surprised but not shocked by the move. In the end, the front office decided not to renew him. I think Joe & Cashman didn't exactly see eye to eye on things going forward & the handwriting was on the wall regarding Joe sticking around.

 

As for who I would like to see as the new manager...........I like someone who's name I haven't heard mentioned yet. How about Tony Pena? I want someone with at least some experience managing on the major league level. Plus, he was a catcher & I like ex catchers as managers. Cashman interviewed Pena for the job back in 2008 when Girardi got the job.

haha Thank you. I know Dave Martinez from his days as a Montreal Expos outfielder. I did not know he was from NY. He never came across as someone who would be a manager. He seemed to be one of the quietest players out there. I did see him in the Cubs dugout. It would be interesting if Nationals hired him, as the Nationals replaced the Expos.

Thank you for replying. Funny you should mention Tony Pena. He is the only name I thought of, as he already has a relationship with the Yankees. I too like former catchers as managers.

 

The Mets hired a pitching coach from the Indians as manager, Mickey Calloway. I know nothing about him.

If we don't sign re-sign Jake I will be very sad. I love the guy. Man huge game tonight because it is 1-1, whoever wins Game 3 has a huge advantage. Yeah Cubs were down 3-1 even but that was the Cubs who were on a mission with the MVP in Kris Bryant and Jake+Chap. I think whoever wins tonight's game wins the series at this point.

He's the best Pitcher we have had the last 3 years and the only Pitcher that beat LA in the Playoffs. He won CY Young in 2015, don't get what you are saying :dunno:

I rarely if ever watch a full baseball game esp games that start after the new TV season. Remember I am a child of HS sports

Terrible ERA at points and lackluster performances at time. Not to mention if he is resigned the Cubs could be carrying dead money

Being too picky IMO, all pitchers struggle at times. Kershaw has stunk in the Postseason for the most part and look at Kluber. Cleveland fans thought he was a God and not only did we beat him in Game 7, Yankees beat him as well.

If we don't re-sign Jake we are screwed IMO, he still has at least 3 years left in that arm.

We will have to see what Jake wants, I am not sold on the 5 year thing but for 3 years I would sign him to a huge deal.

    • It’s rare for rookie WR to produce historically.  Last year it wasn’t.  Is that part of a trend or anomaly? 
    • Wait, so the players‘ agency wants to take away the opportunity of the fridge players to make an impression at training camp to make the team against the odds?!   So much for the American Dream, I guess. 
    • To add to this:   Which WR will break out this year?   We have Hilton who may or may not stay healthy and start to begin to decline, so lets look at everyone else. Pittman seems pro-ready already. He's a 6'4 receiver who fits favorably with Rivers and can win 50/50 balls while dominating in the end zone. He'll be very important. Parris Campbell should be healthy this year. He's our HR threat. Can break any catch for a TD. I believe he can be a good slot receiver for us. Zach Pascal has shown glimpses even with Brissett, so I have confidence in him as a no4. Guys like Fountain and Patmon have potential as well and we will probably keep all 6. IMO, Pittman and Pascal are the safe options to take a step forward with Rivers while Campbell is the high ceiling player with a lower floor. Any breakout from Fountain and/or Patmon would be a bonus.
    • While the colts have had a number of good additions for the 2020 colts team, there are still a number of questions that might not even be answered this year.   Who will be the future of the colts QB   I have stayed on the side that was against signing Rivers. I can understand why the colts did it with the lack of an off-season most likely being a strong reason behind it, however I'm concerned if this does become a multiple year thing with Rivers. Don't get me wrong, I will root for Rivers, however I can not see him being the reason the colts will win this year. I think the run game and defense will be the driving force which is leaving me to wonder who will be the future franchise QB.   2021 free agents   While I know we are projected to have another large cap for 2021, we have 8 starters in 2020 hitting the market. Also big contracts looming for Leonard, Smith, and possibly Turay.   Oline depth   This truly scares me as I am not confident the line can hold up if anyone gets hurt especially with Rivers as the QB. Clark, O'Donnell, Patterson, Green, Eldrenkamp, and Pinter will most likely be the depth and that does not make me excited. Pinter and O'Donnell are rookies, Patterson is basically a rookie, and Clark has never proven to be a viable option.   Our young pass rushers   The colts not re-signing Sheard tells me the colts wanna see what they have in Turay and Benogu. Lewis imo will be traded. I just don't think the colts see him as part of the future. I think Turay and Benogu have shown very good potential and the colts have also added Kendall Coleman who can be a sneaky good pass rusher depth. Autry has been mentioned as moving to DE which I can see, however I'm not sure how well he could set that edge.   Leonard, Moore, and Buckner   I will start by saying that is three great players to run the cover 2, however what I'm wondering is how much different of an approach we will take when it comes to running our defense now. I feel with the talent we have on the dline now, we can actually play more man and put it on our dline to get home. I feel corner has more questions which is why I'd rather we put it on our dline to help the secondary.
