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

We are on Sunday night Baseball tonight at 7pm. If we can get out of LA with a split at 2-2 I will be thrilled.

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.

Big Out getting Bellinger. 2-2 to the top of the 8th. If someone was playing a drinking a game for every time they show Bellinger's mom, they would be drunk.

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.

    • We aren’t even in the same situation as the giants lol. My point stands if the coaches feel a rookie will do best sitting for a year Jacoby will start. If the rookie comes in and blows the roof off in training camp then they will have to make a decision.  They better be sure that rookie is ready. My point was they aren’t going to cut Jacoby. What happens is that rookie stinks it up the first 2 games and is not ready. Who do you have left to salvage a season.  We need to slow down a little. I will laugh my * off of they pass on a couple QB everyone wants them to take. This forum will implode. 
    • Mack is #7, while Barkley is #15 in YPG.... and the Colts are 6th in YPG while NYG are 26th... Not saying Mack is more talented than Barkley, but JB has it great in terms of both an OL to protect him, and a running game to fall back on.    Jones would trade our OL for Barkley any day of the week, especially on Sundays.   Rook QBs typically get ruined when they are forced to play behind a bad OL, and don't have a running game for balance.... not really just because they have to play early. A rook really couldn't ask for a better landing spot than the Colts. The only thing a rook might struggle with in Indy is learning scheme and adjusting to the speed of the game, and those are two things you only learn with playing time.   Not saying we should start a rook day one, or Reich would want to do that, but all this "JB needs to play next year" is sort of silly. Every situation is different. JB may not even want to stay next year if we draft a QB. Or he could end up disgruntled. It's rare that a QB handles losing his job like Eli, but you never know. He could also handle it with grace and be happy to stay and be a backup. I do know one thing though, I don't see JB as an ideal mentor. He just doesn't have a lot of experience to draw from, nor is he great in any skill set areas. 
    • There are so many anti JB people in here right now that I think Chad could look average and get the benefit of the doubt from most people in here. As long as he doesn't look bad like Hoyer did vs Miami. I am not going to bash the guy if he plays and we lose unless he just looks bad.
    • I wonder if Chad would get the same sympathy, if he didn’t play well. 
    • I think Chad should play now. I may eat crow for saying this but I see no way we beat the Saints. Saints are playing for a lot too. By the way I am one that actually picked us at KC too. I don't see it this week though.
