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


Recommended Posts

Cubs in a blowout tonight 11-0 over Seattle. If the season ended today the Cubs would actually make the Playoffs in the final and 5th spot. We are now 16-12 so even if the Brewers win tonight the Cubs would be percentage points ahead of them still. Fly the flag Hozer.

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 have the day off tomorrow, here are the NL Central standings after May 1st:

 

Cards 20-10 

Cubs 16-12 (3 back)

Brewers 17-15 (4 back)

Pirates 14-14 (5 back)

Reds 13-17 (7 back)

 

-This is the best division in Baseball so far record wise. As of now the Cards would be the #1 seed in the NL and the Cubs would be the #5 seed in the Wildcard game.

Yes the opposite of what I had thought.

One hell of a pitchers duel tonight. DeGrom and Disclafani both pitched gems. The light hitting Jose Iglesias is the Reds offensive MVP so far. Great with the glove but I expect his number to fall back to where they are on the back of his baseball card. Ride 'em while they are hot.

Currently the Reds are carrying 14 pitchers. The bullpen is overextended and noone has options. Called Matt Bowman up. I hope they let Zach Duke go. He has been awful. and Garrett is a lefty and has been good. I wonder if Kemp will be let go for a roster spot for Senzel. Probably not. That is lots of money to eat.

Here we go, Cards at Cubs at 220pm today. Start of an early season big series. The Cards come in 20-11 and lead the NL Central, the Cubs come in 16-12 in 2nd, 2.5 back.

 

A look at these 2 great franchises over the years:

-The Cards have 11 World Series, 2nd most in MLB history dating back to 1903. Most recently have won the World Series in 2006 and 2011. 

 

-The Cubs most recently ended a 108 year drought of not winning a World Series as they won it all in 2016 by going 103-58. They also have a 4 year streak of making the playoffs from 2015-2018.

 

-Today's matchup features Jack Flaherty vs Kyle Hendricks.

Cubs win, Cubs win again. The magic continues. Now up 2-0 in this series vs the Cards. Cubs are now a half game out of 1st place in the NL Central. Cards fall to 20-13, Cubs are now 18-12. Looking for the sweep and 1st place tomorrow. Fly the flag Hozer.

Yeah might as well get greedy now. I had us winning 2 of 3 because sweeping the Cards is very difficult but we have a chance. We are playing with house money now and even if we lose tomorrow the worse we come out of it is just 1.5 back with tons of season left.

Mets have a tenuous 1-0 lead over the Brew in the 3rd. Hope we can score some more runs and win this game to even up the series.

 

Go Mets!

 

Mets and Brewers are tied in the 11th. The Brewers blew a save in the 9th on a HR by our rookie Peter Alonso. That is his 10th HR in his early career.

Brewers get lucky like that. You score a run in the 18th and it should be over but not with them. lmao 

 

In the 18th, we bring in this pitcher fresh from the minors. He walks 3 guys in the inning. :facepalm:  I knew it then that we would lose.  I hate it when my pitchers give up walks. OTOH, I love when my hitters take pitches, make the opposing pitchers work and get walks (BBs).

 

Just had a thought. We used to have a lead-off hitter named Lance Johnson. You recall him?? He was not one to take pitches to get a BB. He once said that he was a lead-off hitter, not a lead-off walker. haha 

 

I don't care how they get on base. Just get on base and produce runs. 3 runs in 18 innings is not going to win baseball games.
