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.

    • So I am just curious.    everyone seems to like a few different QBs in the upcoming.  Whether it be Jacob Eason, Jordan Love, Jake Fromm or Jalen Hurts.    So my challenge is let’s so who looks best in Colts Colors. I am sure that there is someone on this board that can mock up a few pictures of each of these guys in Colts uniforms and helmets.    So that is my challenge. Let’s see who pulls it off best. 
    • Come on where’s the conspiracy in that!
    • 2 WRS that we could get later that I really like are Whop Philyor from Indiana and Tamorrion Terry from FSU.    Whop is a small fast receiver. He is 5’11 178lbs. Stats from this year are 1,001 yards and 5 TDS.    Terry is amazing.  Big, tall, fast and physical. He is 6’4 203 lbs. stats this year are 1,023 yards with 8 TDS. 
    • My delusions all ended in grade school lol. My team was undefeated and un scored on all regular season. At the end of the season, we played the top league (based on size, like HS class) champ, and got literally crushed. Think of it as a 1A playing a 5A...  We had 12 total kids on our team, 11 playing both ways, and one kid that didn't want to play..... The team we played had like 35 kids and many had more facial hair in the 8th grade than my father.... It was a fantastic learning opportunity for my ego and I.....    I watch film on just about every player the comes to our team. I already watch and attend a decent amount of SEC games, so I already had a better than average familiarity with the kid. He absolutely looked on another level in college at times, and looked that way against some of the best teams in CFB. I'm not just an SEC junkie though. ND is my absolute #1, but I follow anyone they play pretty religiously (know thy enemy), watch a lot of Big10 (I graduated from a Big10 school), and by reason of where I live watch and attend a lot of SEC and ACC. I'm just a FB junkie to be honest.
    • This kid look promising any word on him his highlights look great could be a sleeper?
