PT I hear you on this its like there is no loyalty to the fans or city. IMO it was a fair offer , now we are back to the agent thing. I despise Boras , would love to see him gone. But I also think Jake the better pitcher. Id love to have him as a Cardinal , but I have never been sold on Darvish..

 

My feelings are not about his talent is about the decision he made and the fact that he is no longer a Cub

   It is the same way that I did root for the Broncos just because of Peyton Manning

Any chance Yankees pursue Arrietta?

Yes I think they might . There are several still rumored interested including the Cards. With them you cant read their true intentions. They will stay quite if they are in till it seems somethings at hand. And welcome to the thread jshipp23. We have a lot of fun in here and its not a place where you cant voice an opinion because your worried about people trying to be-little or run you down . We have always respected one another. I'm a Cards fan but I love and respect the game and like to see it played right. If I see it from other teams I will acknowledge and be happy for them .

JMO but Boras might have messed him up by holding out for a bigger contract

You rooted for Peyton Manning when he left? Or did you mean you did not root for Manning when he was a Bronco? Based on what you wrote about Jake, I would expect your reaction to be one of "Good riddance".

 

I am the opposite. If a player was a good guy on my team, I want him back if he is still capable of getting wins for my team.

I meant not and never want someone to leave but when they choose to I am done

    For some reason(Boras, age,talent, or other) the Braintrust decided to move on and although he will always be a Cub since he is not a current Cub or Tri-State Native  I will not be following him

To me Jake will always be a Cub much like Peyton will always truly be a Colt. Jake is the best PostSeason Pitcher of all-time in Cubs history. It started in 2015 where he won an elimination Wildcard game at Pittsburgh. Then he beat the Cards in the next round when the series was tied 1-1 where the Cubs advanced to the NLCS. In 2016 he won both of his starts in the WS against the Indians (2-0) and the Cubs won their first WS in 108 years. Last season the Dodgers were smoking the Cubs in the NLCS, in steps Jake and he wins his start to avoid being swept and give the Cubs hope. Yu has some damn big shoes to fill.

I think if he tries he will be in trouble , I just don't look at him as an ace. He can prove me wrong but wont be holding my breath.

I don't see him as an ACE either. I think Yu has been a Good to Very Good Pitcher in his career but to me he is a 2nd type guy I would put my rotation. ACE's to me are Bumgarner, Kershaw, Verlander, Jake, and Kluber for example - Lester a couple years ago as well.

My mom used to get season tickets for the Pacers through her job in the early 80's. Buse was one of my favorite players along with Billy Knight, and when Clark Kellogg came into the league he was a beast!

Has anyone on here been to either Fenway, Rogers Centre, Kauffman, Progressive, or PNC before?

 

I have not. Have you? You once said you hoped to go to all the baseball stadiums. Which ones did you like best? The one in San Francisco looks awesome.

    • Correct.   i don’t think Luck is EVER coming back. Nor do I want him back nor should the team want him back. He left this team high and dry less than10 days before the start of the regular season. If I was an owner or a coach, I wouldn’t want him back unless there were some major stipulations added to his contract. Such as 100 percent reimbursement for all salaries paid from the time he was drafted if he were to retire again too close to the season. Put a cut off date around March 30th. Anything after that, he has to reimburse as stated above. Then and only then would I take him back
    • He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.   Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.
    • You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.  
    • Snowboarding is an expensive recreational activity - weed is costly.
    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
