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.

He pitched 4 innings and only gave up 1 run.

 

I read he was having a little trouble controlling the fastball and he hit two batters against Rangers. He only gave up one run in four innings so I’ll take it!

Spring training half over , any youngsters showing promise for your respective teams you had not counted on before camp began ?

after being shut down for a short time, Sonny Gray of the Reds oitched 2 games. 2 innings of shutout ball and 3 perfect innings the next. Not sure how many major league hitters he faced.Last I checked Nick Sensel ws doing pretty good. I think the Reds really hope he can play center field.

There are a few good pitchers out there who have not gained total command of the fastball. That will come the more they pitch.

I watched rhe Reds and Indians today. Nick Senzel, last years #4 overall prodpect is becoming a center fielder. Reports are good. However, today, he was calling for a ball, playing in CF, and had to drift over maybe 8 steps.  Puig, playing right, comes charging over like his hair was on fire, calling enzel off and dropping the ball. I see Puig doing a lot of this, but my main concern was Puig fatally running over Senzel.:funny:

 

Puig also made a useless throw home, allowing a runner to advance from first to second.  Luis Castillo was pitching and looked pretty irritated about loosing the possibility of an infield DP.

That's a bit scary. Let's hope there was a lesson learned and this does not happen again. 

 

I don't know what to think of the Mets. I will wait until the regular season starts to see what to expect the rest of the year.

 

Baseball is almost here. It could not come soon enough.

Crazy money for someone that has only been to the playoffs once. I get he is great though.

 

I like him a lot but $430 million is too much for any player. :thmdown: The Angels give out tons of money. They signed Pujols to ridiculous money. They also have Ohtani, the player who is a starting pitcher who also plays in the field. What is he worth? (Shaking my head)

 

The Angels owner spends money like the late George Steinbrenner did. But at least the Yankees won championships. The Angels won a World Series a while back but that was before they were signing expensive players like this. Let's see what happens.

Cardinals complete a steal in my opinion . From all sources Paul Goldshmidt signed a 5 year ext with Cards for 130 mil . Love it ! Press conference tomorrow. :yahoo:Then Houston with the Colts been a great beginning to the weekend.

I agree, Jay. I read about the extension earlier this week and thought "The Cardinals always do things the right way." They did not overpay like the Padres, Phillies and Angel's did. I loved it. Mets fans on the Mets blog are tired of me bringing up Goldy. Lol.

Mariners won both games. They are 2-0, A's are 0-2. Ichiro retired.

 

Ichiro will be a first ballot Hall of Famer, IMO.

 

Are you ready for some baseball?

Ichiro is the greatest hitter of all-time, screw Pete Rose :sarcasm:. Ichiro 1st ballot easily. Yeah I can't wait for Thursday. 

I don't think Rose was ever the greatest hitter. And he is my all time favorite player. Just not on my list of favorite people.  Williams in my opinion was the grestest hitter.  He lost several prime seasons due to 2 wars. Imagine his counting stats if he had played them . Staggering. Ichiro isn't too far behind him though

When I said screw Pete Rose, I was actually being sarcastic because off the field he did some shady stuff. Ted Williams definitely has an argument to being the greatest hitter ever.

I am not sure why, it could be they just have a ton of depth as of now. Better players to fill his role.

 

How do you feel about this year's Cubs team? Is there an area of the team that you are concerned about? How has Yu looked?

The starting Pitching staff has some age to it, so I am concerned there. We have no legit closer either as in a Chapman type. Yu has looked good so far. I see the Cubs as a playoff team, the batting lineup has a lot of talent.

They want him to work on making contact. His 2nd half last year and now spring he's hitting under .200. They did this with Schwarber too so that hope is it will clear his mind and get him back to understanding. Also to give him some consistent time

    • I hope the Vikings find the light this Sunday!
    • The Cardinals are sitting 5th at the moment.   Tough series with the Brew Crew who is also playing for their playoff lives.   I'd be happy to finish this series 3-2.  
    • Hooker maybe. Hookers hopefully not
    • Nope. Excuses because he's your fav WR. lol Honestly, If Cam Newton were to vlog, you would make a post about it. Just like when I said the Colts should have signed Newton instead of Rivers, You and Superman amongst others called me out for making a "ridiculous" assertion.   Remember when I said I WILL. Referring to me revisiting Mid-Season to see who has performed better, especially for the money each player is receiving?   The "excuse" was that Newton doesn't fit the "system". However, the teams which are currently ranked ahead of the Colts made the necessary adjustments to complement their QBs. (RAVENS/CHIEFS/SEAHAWKS/PATRIOTS)   Go ahead. All the frowning emojis are the same posters that called me out about Cam Newton. It's funny that Im proven correct, and these trolls wont even face up and say, You know what, that Rackeen fella stood on his belief and is proven true so far. To all the Emoji lovers. see below. Now is your time to thumb up my "unpopular post" lol I WAS RIGHT ABOUT CAM. It's funny that CrazyColt is writing me now, when 2 months ago I said what I said. I guess CC was right then also. lol   Dont make me get receipts lol. too late.     On 7/13/2020 at 6:09 PM, dw49 said:   If the main point you are making is that you think we may have over paid for Rivers , it not doubt has merit. I wonder who we were bidding against when the numbers were reaching the mid twenties ? May a bidding war between Indianapolis and the Colts ? I was very surprised he was able to command a 1 year deal for that kind of money. If he does great and the team makes at run at it , no big deal if we overpaid by what... around 7 mill IMO. If he's washed up , it will no doubt looked at as a  gaffle.     On 7/13/2020 at 6:16 PM, crazycolt1 said: How many of you guys really care what Cam Newton is making?  Why do you even care what the Patriots do and don't do?  Some of you have an obsession with the Patriots like they have gotten into your heads.    My point is this. Many people think or hope that Rivers performs as he was 2 years+ ago. If judging players from 2 years+ ago is the measuring stick, Cam was a better player as he took a lesser team (talent wise compared to the Chargers) to the Superbowl. Same year becoming league MVP.   Another thing. Since we know who AL is, who were many people comparing AL to body wise (Speed, strength,etc) upon entering the NFL? Cam Newton. They were comparing frames, even 40 times. Cam is a National Championship winner, 1st overall pick, goes to the Superbowl, League MVP. These are all things that Rivers never lived up to subsequently. Once again, Once you go 1st overall 9/10 times your team is the worst in the league. Cam took his team to the Superbowl, Something not even AL did. No chaser.
    • This rant is not at the OP....just a notion I see here and there...   Over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over........we see good teams get beat by teams we thought were bad......and see bad teams rise up and embarrass teams that were unbeatable.    Why oh why, do fans continue to carry arrogance or defeatist thoughts pre game to anyone? Why?   Look at what it did to this board in week one. I mean, the Colts couldn't possibly lose to the Jags.....they are the worst team in the league! Their QB is low grade! Then, after beating us, they barely missed beating a really good Tennessee team. Or are they? THen, they get whacked by the Fins. See my point?   If the Colts beat the Jets by one point......just one point, I am happy as a fan. Needing a large margin of victory over a seemingly weak opponent, to satisfy one's frail belief in their team, is certainly a curious notion at best.    But, as usual, my crotchety attitude should probably take a hike. Carry on.............
