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

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

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

Cubs win, 12-4. Not much to complain about today. Lester looked great, MVP looks healthy and homered, and Baez hit 2 HR's. Very solid opening day for the Cubs.

Good morning, Folks

 

Hope you're all doing well. Congrats to Jay and his Cards for defeating the Brew Crew yesterday. Goldschmidt hit 3 HRs. 

 

Looking forward to watching my first Mets  game of the year today. The Mets are playing the Nats. Thor vs Stras. It should be a good game.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

I think the Cubs will be a playoff team. They will beat the computers :funny: and win way more than 79 games. I have them winning 90 at worse.

79 is a very low prediction in my opinion.

@Jay Kirk, Cards just lost 5-4 to the pesky BrewCrew.  

Yes a very competitive game Caine saved it for the Brewers pulling one back into the park. Not so good for Brew Crew night two , Goldy lit them up on a 4 for 5 night with 3 homers . Brewers walked him intentionally in 9th to keep him from having a chance at history in that ballpark. Even the Brewers fans booed at the move by council. Many of them had stuck around to see his at bat. They left soon as they walked him.

Hudson make his first start for the Cardinals tonight.   I hope this rookie proves he is worth it.  

 

Its a wise move in that ballpark. He induces a very high % of groundballs. Yes a tough game to start with but I believe he is up to the challenge.

Thanks NFL I appreciate Goldy even more after watching him. Hes a great all around player. He makes pitchers work and if they make a mistake he doesn't miss. The 3 homers were all no doubters . Well out of the park.

I have had to watch on dvr on both games , taking care of things at home. Not the opening weekend I had planned but will take it. Beats being at work and getting to spend time with my wife is a plus. Looking into taking her to St Louis for a game. Even though she cant see it , she definitely can take in the atmosphere , she's a huge Molina fan. Lol plan was to watch Cubs Cards and Reds all three , junkie .

Glad that you get to spend this opening weekend with your family. I think acquiring Goldschmidt was one of the best moves of the offseason. Extending him and extending deGrom were also good moves by the Cards and the Mets. 

 

Enjoy the games this weekend.

Mike Trout is a great player but how great is he? Does he deserve the contract he got? He has been in the league 8 years and his teams have never won a playoff series or a game in the playoffs. He has a lifetime batting avg of .307.

 

Off the top of my head these players were better all-time in my lifetime:

Barry Bonds

Mike Schmidt

Tony Gwynn

Rickey Henderson

Pete Rose

Derek Jeter

Alex (AROD)

Ken Griffey JR

Albert Pujols

Cal Ripken JR

Wade Boggs - he even once drink 30 beers on an airplane lmao 

*Pitching wise - Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, and Mariano Rivera were all more impactful and have rings playing a huge role. 

 

-I can make a strong argument that Mookie Betts is better now in today's league.

 

-I am not saying Kris Bryant is better than Mike Trout but he does have a ring and an MVP already in only 4 years played. 

 

I have to say Trout is probably the best Player in the League right now in my opinion with Goldschmidt running a close second , did not realize just how good he is till watching him on a regular basis in spring and these first two games. Its not just hitting he is a gold glover and a very good base runner as well. They are all great players some in different eras so its really difficult to stack them against one another.

Why do you have to fight to get it? It is your right as an employee if your job has more than 50 employees. I hope you get it.

They have it set up through the Hartford , more getting a run around . If it doesn't get resolved really soon my blind disabled wife will be getting a lawyer to file against them for damages . She is not going to play their games. By the way around 800 employees

Yeah nice win last night by the Cards. Way to even the series up :thmup:. Goldschmidt was a great pickup for you guys.

I work with Jay Kirk.  Some empoyers aren't really human. Just sayin'. they make you jump through hoops and then force their company meat (poorly cut steak) down your throat once a year to show their "appreciation". but it does pay pretty decent....I am drifting off topic....

 

In the Cardinal game Saturday, I saw a highlight of Goldy punching a ball through a hole in the left side of the infield. a really slow roller. I thought it looked like he wass taking what t they were offering and going with it instead of working on his launch angle. I was damn impressed with that at bat.

Looks like Yu stunk it up but the bullpen did have a lead and lit it slip. 

 

:thmdown:  What happened?

 

The Mets bullpen almost gave up an 11-4 lead. It seemed like a day that we would not need to bring in the closer, Diaz. But sure enough, he came in after the bullpen gave up 4 runs in the 9th. Diaz made it look easy.

Yu walked 7 guys and then the bullpen gave up a lead late.

And now a bad day for my teams:Cry: Purdue loses in OT, and Cubs go down as well. It was a great game, proud of the Boilers to have made it that far after everyone had counted them out, it was fun to watch. 

 

 Yu better work on his confidence some more, he could not find the plate last night.

    • LOL, just like being a Wisconsin QB is a negative predictor...Hello Russell Wilson.  Your dispassionate analysis fails to consider we were running an Air Coryell system that year, which is hugely beneficial to RBs. It spreads out the entire D, and does not allow for tight fronts or stacked boxes. It's an incredible benefit to RBs. Indy on the other hand, is a dink and dunk, which actually promotes Ds to play up and congest the box.
    • I'll take any QB.   @EastStreet Do you think any team would be willing to trade for Cousins? We may have to offer incentives like a mid-round pick to make the trade happen. I think I would be willing to give even a 2nd.  I thought Dallas for a 8-9 game rental. (Actually, Dalton may be more of a winning QB than Kirk. That was a good signing by Dallas.)   I'm thinking of any place to send Cousins. Any thoughts? Colts maybe? Fans here seem to like him.  
    • Not being emotional. Just calling out silly, which this is. Why is it silly? And why is it silly "right now"?   1) JT is outperforming Mack's first year significantly, and at the same time, being asked to do much more (running and catching). AVG 3.8 vs 4.1 RunYPG 25.6 vs 61.2 RcvYPG 16.1 vs 27.0   2) JT currently has the same AVG as Elliot, and a better AVG than McCaffery, Jacobs, and Mixon all highly regarded. 3) In terms of first years, Taylor is doing better than McCaffery, And is doing better than year 2 of Gurley 4) Our scheme/play calling doesn't help Taylor at all, and actually hurts him. That will change if Reich keeps things open. 5) JT is learning a new system. His vision will come as he learns our zone blocking scheme.   JT isn't getting the Brissett treatment this year. Brissett wasn't a rookie last year, didn't have an amazing and proven track record at a big school, etc., JB performed the way he's always performed since college, so folks defending him didn't really know his past, or have realistic expectations of his ceiling. He was still struggling with the exact same things he struggled with in college.    The case is not the same for JT. JT has a higher ceiling, a proven track record at a big school, just needs time to adjust, and is already outperforming his predecessor while doing more at the same time.
    • Click here for this week’s Colts Mailbag! The bye week has provided plenty of opportunities to take a look back at the first six weeks of the season. Lots of in-depth questions this time around on Quenton Nelson pulling in the run game, three-tight end sets, slant route usage, offensive pace and more.   Thanks again for the thoughtful submissions, and try to enjoy your Sunday without Colts football.
    • Ravens, think Jackson gets in done in playoffs, KC will be right there, Colts wont be a tough playoff out by any means either, Buffalo a year away imo.     Bears their D gives everyone problems, Robinson having another very good year at WR (Maybe top WR no one really talks about much) already beat the Bucs and their schedule is easy down the stretch also which will allow a fresh roster into the playoffs.  Seattle has looked impressive and a lot of depth, Tampa wont go down easy and Drew looking to cap career in N.O. with one last run.
