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

Recommended Posts

Will this trip out to LA has been a total dud so far. What is scary is they clearly look like the better team compared to us and we are halfway through June. Good thing is as of now we are still only 1 game out of 1st place in the NL Central at 38-31 behind the 39-30 Brewers. We also hold 1 of the 2 Wildcard spots so if the season ended today the Cubs would make the playoffs. The Cubs schedule has been the toughest in the league over the last 3 weeks as we have played the Cards two 3 game series, the Astros in Houston for a 3 game set, and now 4 at LA. That is rough. It gets a tad easier after this LA series which is the good news. Kris Bryant (MVP) is 100% healthy now too. He crushed another HR tonight.

Ugh Hendricks sent to the IL, prospect Adbert Alzolay might be called up. Currently down 1-0 in the 7th. :censored:

Cubs win, Cubs win a big one in LA 2-1. Rizzo with a 2 run HR in the 9th inning. Darvish struck out 10! Fly the flag Hozer as we are now tied for 1st again in the NL Central with the Brewers who lost tonight. Both teams are 39-31 through 70 games.

Same with Thor (Syndergaard). He left the game with what they are calling "a strained hamstring". He was up 8-3. The terrible BP promptly gave up 2 runs and 3 more afterwards. We needed a great throw at the end of the game to salvage the win over the Cards.

We beat the Cards by throwing a runner out. Mr. Clutch Yadier Molina drives in the Cards 7th run with a single off our over-hyped closer Diaz. The Cards manager pulls Molina to put a faster runner on base. The next batter hits a ball in no man's land -- in between the second baseman and the right fielder. The runner coming around the bases was sent home. And a great throw by our 2nd baseman gets the runner out by a few feet. Had the manager had not pinch run for Molina, Molina may have stayed on 3rd base and the Cards may have scored on another hit. But pinch running for Molina was the right call.

 

If you want to hear the call:

Love Gary Cohen as an announcer. He has been with the Mets for as long as I could remember. Before moving to the TV broadcast crew, he was on the radio with this guy

Yeah I seen where Hendricks got sent to the IL. It is shoulder inflammation but reports are nothing major. So far he has pitched the most innings for the Cubs so a rest is much needed.

What's going on in the Cubs game? Surprised not to see comments by Hozer and 2006Coltsbestever. I'm watching the US Open (golf).

 

Happy Father's Day, Hozer, @Jay Kirk, @coltsfansince65 and all the fathers out there. Hope you had a meaningful day.

Cubs down 3-2 now. Should have had the out at home. Bad throw. It is the little things that happen in games whether or not you beat the better teams in the league. Cubs down to their final 3 outs in the 9th.

Game over, Cubs lose. Sometimes I feel like I’m watching a little league team that’s just learning the fundamentals of baseball. Bad throw home. Almora stands there flat footed instead of taking off immediately giving the catcher an easy tag out. Frustrating. On to the crosstown rival White Sox .

Yep just silly mistakes you can't make against a team like LA. We gave that game away. They showed Bellinger's mom again haha . That is I think the 8th time. I lost count. We should take care of the Sox.

MVP with a base hit, 1-1 against the Sox so far. A win puts us in a tie in 1st place again with the Brewers in the NL Central.

Of course it’s Eloy Jimenez who hits the homerun, the same guy who was a promising prospect for us that we traded away along with Dylan cease who is also playing very well for the White Sox. First game against Cubs, and boom.  Quintana has been fairly solid for us, but wow, just wow.

I keep reading a lot of good stuff about our promising pitching prospect, Alzolay, yet for whatever reason they’re not bringing him up? Chatwood will start for Hendricks instead on Thursday? Oh boy. Probably waiting to trade him off too. Wow sounds like a lot of Sox fans at Wrigley tonight, more then there are at their home stadium, lol!

Sounds like me!

 

Just be glad your team is not the Mets. They won today behind great pitching by deGrom but otherwise they are a dumpster fire. I don't think I have seen a bullpen as bad as the 2019 Mets bullpen. It is really bad. But even worse is their defense. Defense like timely hitting is undervalued. Play good defense and I can stay interested. Poor defense is frustrating and not watchable. It gets me down and I feel I am wasting my time.

 

Anyway, let's hope for better days ahead.

It's a long season. As long as we make the Playoffs it's all good. Tough one tonight though. All losses are rough.

Cards are our biggest rival but I dislike the Brewers and White Sox more. It is their fanbase. They are disrespectful IMO to us. Cards and Dodgers fans respect us because of the last 5 years. Brewers have never won a Championship and the White Sox haven't won one in a long time and they have sucked for years lol. Cubs have won more games over the last 5 seasons than anyone and a Championship. Facts are facts haha

Cubs up 6-3 in the Bottom of the 7th over the White Sox. A win tonight puts the Cubs back in 1st place. Brewers lost again and are now 40-34. Cubs if they hold on will be 40-33.

    • Not saying they will or they wont... but...   1. Many fans think Kelly is the best chance at winning, only brings risks because of maturity. 2. Coaches rarely bag on their QBs, yet QBs get replaced every year. Reich and Ballard have been lucky so far that the media is still pitching soft balls on the topic, and haven't had to defend or speculate.  3. They only waived him to put him on the PS... you're double dipping. And they also made him one of the highest paid PS players in the league. If they did not like him, they would have booted him when they signed Hoyer. They didn't.  4. IIRC, Kelly wasn't even brought up to the 53 until the day before Miami. He got zero first team snaps lol.. He was never an option outside of emergency.
    • They Both will be breaking this record.. Tom could actully do it first, which is what you probably dont want to see lol. Actually given how terrible the Bengals are. If he doesn't break it before Brees is that kind of a shock? I guess 4 is a stretch. But why else would a 40 something yearh old rich dude with 6 rings continue to play? lol i think it was for this record all along. 
    • I'd prefer to save TY for the last home game. We're not going to beat NO, so would prefer to not put him at risk if not 100%
    • I was able to phone in week 14, I clinched a conference playoff spot in week 13, and my overall league playoff matchup looked like I was going to get totally washed. (My opponents team was:   QB: Jackson RB: Elliot, Cook WR: Diggs, DJ Moore TE: Andrews Flex: Alshon Jeffery  K: Boswell DST: Minnesota    Went into the Monday night game with a 3.28 point lead and Jeffery went down with a big 0 so I got the highly improbable win. PLUS I didn’t have to worry about and started a Steelers RB and boy did that ever feel good!)   So this week’s matchup is a double playoff matchup. My opponent is my opponent in both the conference, and overall league playoff matchups.    My roster: QB: Watson RB: Zeke, ? WR: Hopkins, Jones TE: ? Flex: ? K: Gonzalez DST: 49ers   The questions:   RB I picked up DeAndre Washington on waivers hoping he would be the starter at least this week. Then Josh Jacobs MRI came back clean. If Jacobs is out and he starts he’s an instant starter at RB. But I think there’s a pretty low probability of that this week. Which sucks because I thought that after all I’ve been through with Steelers RBs this season Washington was the fantasy gods way of making it up to me in the playoffs. They have scorned me yet again.    I have Mack and he’s healthy, but he has a difficult matchup with the Saints, and Reich loves nothing more than to neuter a RB’s fantasy value the way he churns them in and out of games.    Conner is back. *heavy sigh*. Samuels is out again, and Snell has not been good at all. Buffalo has actually coughed up quite a few points to RBs of late. But it’s Conner. And the Steelers. That one week of refuge from this situation was so nice...   I have Adrian Peterson as well. Guice is done for the season but they gave the Eagles this week. He’s more of a week 16 option against the Giants.    Finally I have Jordan Howard. Who hasn’t played in forever, and isn’t a lock to play this week, and I think he’s too risky to start even if he does, no real consideration here.    WR The great Julio Jones TD drought of 2019 continues. Ridley is out so Jones is definitely the top target at WR. Richard Sherman is out for the 49ers, but that defense is still good. I don’t think I’m considering benching Jones, but I’m sure not in love with him these days.    DeVante Parker tried to do his best to sink me last week with his injury, but I was able to hold on and win in spite of it. He seems likely to play this week and has a favorable matchup against the Giants. If he starts he’s penciled in at flex.    Golden Tate has a foot injury, and he and Eli Manning didn’t accomplish much Monday. With the three WRs above him I just don’t see any way I can seriously consider starting him anywhere this week.    TE Darren Waller continues to be highly inconsistent. He’s a guy who could ruin your playoffs with a dud. I also have the dynamic of Washington. If Washington starts at RB and I start Waller I’m playing those two against each other and limiting my TD potential.    I picked up Tyler Higbee on waivers this week. 35 points in the last two weeks, but that was against the worst and second worst defense against TEs. He plays Dallas this week which is the 11th worst, so it’s a decent matchup, but do I trust the Rams offense to keep him scoring in the fantasy playoffs?    Flex Everyone mentioned above is a flex candidate. Like I said, if Parker is back and healthy I feel like I have to give him the nod against the Giants, but I’m interested to hear cases for anyone else at the spot. 
    • They are in a rare position with all the draft capital. They can do basically whatever they want this year and next. If they do things right, they could be a very different team in 2021. And I'm not sure I'd bank everything on Tua with their early pick. I'd much rather have Lawrence next year.
