Yep, still in 1st place by %points in the NL Central over the Brewers. Try for a sweep of the Cards Sunday night. As of now we are 36-27, Brewers are 37-28.

The Mets are playing my brand of baseball this afternoon. They are getting good pitching, good defense, guys are getting on base, stealing bases, moving guys along, and getting runs across the plate. I love that brand of baseball. We had a HR too but that is least important haha.

 

Thor has pitched 6 innings so far -- only 88 pitches. He has given up no runs and just 1 hit. :scoregood:

 

Mets lead 6-0. Let's get the win, Mets.

The Mets win 6-1 over the Rockies who came in playing very well. The Mets take 2 out of 3. The best thing about this game is that the Mets played good fundamentally sound baseball for all 9 innings. 

 

Good game to watch. Enjoy your baseball today, folks. :D

Cubs playing like the Mets did today. Love NL-style baseball.

So far so good. Cubs up 3-1, a sweep would be huge here. Brewers won today so it would be nice to keep pace and stay in 1st in the NL Central. Cards would be 6 games back if they lose.

Yeah neither team can win on the other field. In the 9 games they have played, the home team has won every time. So far 6-3 Cubs.

Thoughts and prayers go out to David Ortiz who was shot yesterday in his native Dominican Republic. It sounds like he sustained damage to some organs but may live. Hoping the best for Big Papi's recovery.

It’s a shame when a guy can’t go back home and enjoy life without some punks taking shots at him. Sad. Hope for a speedy recovery for him!

Right. He has done so much for his country. He is a legend there. I'm happy to hear that he is expected to make a full recovery.

I just read he’s on a plane bound for Boston hospital, in critical condition but good enough to fly. Can’t imagine any other reason that someone would put a hit on him other then pure jealousy.

I read that too. I think he might already be in a Boston area hospital. I read that he is expected to make a full recovery. Let's hope for that. He seems like a good person.

Because some people are just that evil and jealous. The guy that shot him may have been offered a lot of money to do so as well. Some will do anything for money. Not saying that is the case here but who knows?

Yeah here lately road wins have been hard to come by. At least the Brewers are losing big to the Astros 10-5 right now. We are a different team at home that is for sure.

Mets fans say the same. Since leaving the Mets, he has killed them. It seems like he is batting 1000 against the Mets. Lol.

Big win today by the Cubs 10-1 over the Rockies. As of now we are tied for 1st place in the NL Central at 38-29 with the Brewers. Last I looked the Brewers were losing 3-2 to the Astros in the 5th inning. Hamels looked great today.

Per ESPN, the suspect in the Big Papi shooting was offered a measily $7800 dollars to do the hit. That is pathetic. Last I heard Big Papi was recovering well :thmup:

The GDP per Capital was/is 7,053.26 US Dollars in 2017 and the GNI was 15,290 PPP so not to bad in the DR in other words about 35,000 in the US since the US GNI is 60,200

Cubs up 2-0 over the powerful Dodgers in the 1st inning. Kershaw shaky early. Hopefully Lester has his great stuff tonight.

Welp, it was a good start at least....until Lester crumbled.

Yep. We were up 3-0, gave Jonny a cushion but it did not matter. Down 6-3 now. Dodgers are going to be hard to beat all season.

    • Lamar is an elite runner and was taught how to pass between his first and second season. He's extremely young, and a big reason he doesn't pass too much is because the Ravens are a great run team and he runs. However, Lamar is almost always good for 200-250 yards and 3 tds. That's really important when you can get the ball in the end zone, run it in the end zone, and the rbs are running it in the end zone. He's like a tebow on steroids that can play football.
    • I would take a healthy Luck on this team as well. We have a great team, so I think he could do something. Doesn't mean he's not overrated. He's not even the best QB in his draft class. Luck is just like any other QB that can't carry a team on his back. He's not special, and he has baggage. However, we could literally use any above average QB now and have a chance at a SB. Luck just slightly increases our chances at this point. Ballard already did the work by putting the complete team together. 
    • I dont understand why you would take Lamar over Andrew wheb Lamar isn't even a proven passer. Sure he can run and avoid pressure. But can he pass at an elite level?
    • Yeah Luck did quit on us but he was not over rated.  No knock on Rivers but I wish we had a healthy Luck on this team right now. Sorry, saying he was over rated is pure horse dung. 
    • Well first, I wouldn't play on a football team because I don't like to depend on others. I'm a control freak. Second, I have already said plenty of no1 overall QBs don't win the SB early in their careers. My issue with Luck is how uncompetitive and easily shut down he is Vs the Pats, and the fact that he quit on the team when things finally started getting good with Ballard. He is completely overrated and had little passion for the game. When you're the best prospect since Elway, when does some of the responsiblity go on you to win games? Why does he need a perfect team to win a SB or beat the Pats? Even if the team wasn't good enough and he was outmatched, he quit when he had the tools to win. That erases any credibility that he could of won with better talent. We have better talent now, and Luck wanted nothing to do with us.
