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.

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.

    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB. Then you see these colts.com post these stats about the offense and JB particularly.    Colts Offense   Fourth in the NFL and second in the AFC in rushing yards (139 per game)   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed (24)   Ninth in the NFL in sack percentage allowed (6.14)   Fifth in the NFL in first downs per game (22.2)   Ninth in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (44.23)   Third in the NFL in 3rd-and-short [less than four yards] conversion percentage (72.9)   Fifth in the NFL in 3rd-and-10-plus conversion percentage (26.7)   Seventh in the NFL in fourth down conversion percentage (62.5)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in fourth downs converted (10)   Tied for eighth in the NFL in red zone touchdown scoring percentage (63.64)   Seventh in the NFL in average time of possession (31:26)   Tied for third in the NFL in touchdowns off 10-play drives (13)   Tied for fourth in the NFL in 10-play drives (26)   Second in the NFL in average number of plays on scoring drives (9.00)   Tied for third in the NFL in red zone touchdowns (28)   Tied for third in the NFL in players recording three or more receiving touchdowns (4)   10th in the NFL in PFF offensive rating (75.8)   10th in the NFL in PFF pass blocking rating (74.4)   Second in the NFL in PFF run blocking rating (82.6)   Quarterback Jacoby Brissett   Eighth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.3)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in passing touchdowns (16)   Fifth in the AFC in touchdown percentage (4.9)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in fewest interceptions (6)   Sixth in the AFC in interception percentage (1.8)   Sixth in the AFC in passer rating (93.2)   Sixth in the AFC in third down passer rating (88.7)   Tied for first in the NFL in third-and-one rushing conversion percentage (100)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks (3)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in red zone passing touchdowns (14)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in passing touchdowns within 10-yard line (10)   10th in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks in fumbling grade (62.6)   Seventh in the NFL in undesigned QB scrambles (25)*   Eighth in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage (76.3)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in fewest interceptions under pressure (1)*   Third in the NFL in completion percentage in clean pocket (75.0)*   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest interceptions in clean pocket (5)*   Third in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage in clean pocket (83.0)*   10th in the NFL in passer rating in clean pocket (107.5)*   Fifth in the NFL in play action completion percentage difference (7.0)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in play action passing touchdowns (7)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest play action interceptions (1)*   Ninth in the NFL in play action completion percentage (69.3)*   Eighth in the NFL in play action passer rating (110.5)*   Tied for eighth in the NFL in fewest non-play action interceptions (5)*   Third in the NFL in average time in pocket (3.01 seconds)*   Fifth in the NFL in average time to run/scramble (5.61 seconds)*   First in the NFL in fewest percentage of dropbacks with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (36.7)*   Tied for sixth in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (75.0)*   Ninth in the NFL in passer rating with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (102.9)*   First in the NFL in dropbacks with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (63.3)*   10th in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (58.2)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest interceptions with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (3)*
    • While I agree he got a bit of a raw deal, and agree he probably works well with FR, I think he's a bit of fool's gold built on one rare year. He'd be an upgrade over JB for sure in FR's system, but I'd rather go young and get a guy to grow long term with. 
    • Yeah, the hooded evil genius just needs to retire and go away lol. It's just unfair to the rest of the league.    Shan gets it now, but I think they'll have a little late fall from grace and end up a 5 in the NFC. The way the schedule plays out, I can see Seattle taking their division.
