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

At least the Brewers lost 9-7 to the Reds. We are still 3 games ahead of them despite the struggles. Cards are up 3-1 on the Dodgers in the 4th right now, if the Cards win that would put them just 2.5 games back. You would think they will cool off soon. Most teams do after a hot stretch. Cards have won 11 of 13 and Cubs have lost 3 in a row. I believe it goes in cycles with these teams. I have seen the Cubs win 5 in a row and turn around and lose 4 in a row, same for the Cards.

 

I am very concerned about our team right now though and less concerned about what the Brewers or Cards do. The Offense has completely disappeared. Doesn't matter if we hold teams to 2 or 3 Runs if we can only muster up 1 Run. Like I said I am hoping Murphy can bring a spark to this team and Bryant can get back by next week. I am starting to wonder if Chili Davis isn't part of the problem, alot of Cubs fans seem to think so. 

Don't know if the Cards cool much or not , Ozuna is starting to light it up as well. I like the way the team is being managed , and its been a total different mindset after Matheny's departure . Much more aggressive baseball .

Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

I just got an anonymous call on my phone which I usually don't answer when I don't see a number I recognize. I answered it and the person said SOX and hung up.  I have no clue who it was  

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

Cubs and Cards both look like both will be in the Playoffs assuming we can score some Runs soon :spit:

Just as we thought early in the season, the Cards do have a very tuff schedule ahead.

8-2 Cubs, Rizzo just Homered, back to back HR's by Baez and Rizzo!

 

Murph is 2 for 5. Did Dgambill say that Murph could not turn double plays? I see he was part of 1 double play on defense.

Cardinals win again! Very nicely done by them. The NL Central standings after tonight (August 22nd) reads as:

Cubs 72-53 *best record in the NL, own #1 Seed

Cards 71-57 (2.5 back) *own the 1st Wildcard spot

Brewers 71-58 (3 back) *own the 2nd Wildcard spot

 

-In the NL East, Braves own the #2 Seed as of now (71-55)

-In the NL West, D-Backs own the #3 Seed as of now (71-56)

 

-Of course in the AL, the Red Sox are running away with the league at 89-39! Can anyone beat them come Playoff time?

I need to learn to stop putting my foot in my mouth. Trust me I was as surprised as anyone. Doesn't change the fact he is a big downgrade defensively. I knew he had a good bat and expect him to continue to hit well. He has lost some of his punch but he is still a dangerous hitter. Again I like him as a player and a signing....it just meant to me that someone was hurt to go out and get him. Maybe this is what the team needed. If guys don't produce then Theo will go out and replace you in the lineup. That said Russell/Baez double play is probably one of the best in the league. Both have great range and great arms.

I should not have singled you out. I apologize. We all joke with each other on this thread and we all get along.

 

You wrote that you were surprised. Are you referring to the double play or the trade?

 

A large gathering of Mets fans just got on the subway, trying to beat the crowd. The Mets are losing 3-1 in the bottom of the ninth.

Yes they can be beat , but its gonna take a hot team with good pitching to back it up.
