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

So much fun, any day at Wrigley is a good one. First time I’ve ever been there for a grand slam, that was so awesome!!! Can’t wait to go back.

 

When my sister lived in a suburb of Chicago (Oak Park), I visited there and wanted to attend a Cubs game. All games were sold out. :(

 

I thought Chicago was a great city, very clean. I did not see any of the violence that is reported on the news. I'd like to visit again one day. I'd like to visit Indiana too one day. I'm going to Miami (FL) tomorrow (my uncle's ex-wife/my cousins' mother passed away).

Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

First off my condolences on the loss to your family , :sorry:

 

 

You HAVE to catch a game at Wrigley, it’s like nothing else! I always talk to opposing team fans after games and they all say they loved their experiences at Wrigley and would definitely be coming back. I was surprised at how many A’s fans actually flew in from Oakland. The area has definitely changed with all the new buildings and stadium upgrades, but it still maintains its nostalgic charm and uniqueness. Love the atmosphere as well!

 

Would be great if the Vikings played in Indianapolis sometime soon, doesn’t look like they do this season. Lucas Oil Stadium and downtown Indy are also a great time, I think you would love it. Still think it would be cool to have a forum get together sometime. There’s also a baseball stadium next door to Lucas Oil, where the Indianapolis Indians play, who are a Triple A team for the Pirates. Great little stadium as well. 

 

Chicago is like any other big city, just depends where you go. The downtown and north end districts are safe for the most part and have plenty of police protection. Just have to know where you’re going and what you’re getting into.

I'd love that. Sign me up. :D There are some very nice people here. 

 

I am pretty sure the Vikes play the Colts in 2020. If they play in Indy, I may attend.

We look really good right now but still a ways to go brother. I am feeling good about this now but things can change quickly in baseball lmao . We have had the best team over the last 5 seasons so why I doubt these guys is my problem :funny:

It is looking way ahead but if we play the Dodgers in the NLCS, we have to put pressure on them early. That is our only chance, they are very strong. We have to steal game 1 in LA to have a chance. I know I am looking way ahead but teams that win game 1 in the NLCS win 77% of all series in the history of MLB.

And the Cardinals freefall has begun.  Most everyone in the starting lineup is back and healthy, then we start losing.  No idea why they extended Carpenter...I think he's toast, for the most part.  Ozuna says he wants to stay in St. Louis, but he's become injury prone.

 

Nothing done of significance before the trade deadline, while the Cubs got better.

 

There needs to be a major shake up in the front office in St. Louis if they don't make the playoffs for a 4 straight season.  Their formula isn't working.

Dang it! I knew the Cubs should have saved some of those runs for tonight, they seem to have taken the night off again. 5-1 Reds in the 7th with the only run coming ala HR by you guessed it, Castellanos!

 I listened to the first few innings but stopped to get ready for the WNBA game featuring Jackie Young that starts at 9:30 on CBSSN

The roller coaster continues.

Yep, that was brutal and the road woes continue. Before this 10 day road trip begin I said I would be happy with 5-5 and at this point I will be. We then will play 6 in a row at home. Lead is down to 1.5 over the Brewers and 2 over the Cards. Cards are playing the Pirates right now and the Pirates can't beat their way out of a wet paper bag. If you want to gain ground just play the Pirates haha

Cubs win Fly the flag Hozer,

 

I am happy, 2-2 vs this team is a win on the road lmao . I am being serious. We usually stink against these guys. Reds have a good club. It's all good. MVP saved the day and he should now and then being the great young player he is. 

 

This game started off very bad until MVP and Happ saved the day!!!! Cubs off tomorrow, then back at it in Philly on Tuesday!

When MVP came up in the 7th I had a feeling he was going to hit one out. He was due. Watching this team all season I just felt it. 

He was definitely clutch today.  I read earlier that Chisek when in the IL for inflammation........So many injuries starting to pop up. Zobrist has been hitting Dingers in the minors, so well hopefully be seeing him back soon! Strap on your seatbelt Brother, it’s going to be a bumpy ride to the finish I’m afraid!

Ok, going into August 12th the NL Central standings look like this:

 

Cubs 64-54

Cards 61-55 (2 back)

Brewers 62-57 (2.5 back)

Reds 56-60 (7 back)

Pirates 48-69 (15.5 back)

 

-At the beginning of the season if anyone would've told me this would be the case on August 12th, I would've took it. I thought the Cards would have 70 wins by now, I really did. Cubs are right where I thought they would be (10 above .500 or so) and I had us as a wildcard. We still have a shot at winning the division despite the Cards having the better roster IMO. We won a WS recently and still have a talented roster but it isn't as great as 2016. Cards overall have a better roster. Brewers are pretty equal to us. We do have Joe Maddon though and IMO he is the better manager of the 3 teams.

See I knew we should've got rid of him :sarcasm:. In all seriousness that is too bad for Jake. He will always be an all-time great Cub.

What a wasted outing by Q. We just can't figure it out on the road. I have no idea why.

 

The road woes continue. You know, at least they kept this one close and were in it literally until the end, Heyward had a chance for a walkoff but couldn’t get it done. I would much rather see these types of losses then the sloppy ones they’ve had lately. Still a loss though and that sucks.

 

On a side note...I’m having a tough time biting my tongue over on the Colts forum, my word there is some major stupidity being spread. I need to stop going over there and reading that crap.

I know, I keep reading it too and I have been mostly posting Gif's to bite my tongue. I need to stop reading that garbage. haha

I had to meet some relatives for dinner so I missed the last 3 innings. I am here now and Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu pitched a great game. He got a win at Wrigley :thmup:. Cards lost as well, so the Cubs are now at 60-51 and Cards are now at 58-52. We have a 1.5 game lead in the NL Central and the sweep of the Brewers (who fall to 57-56) puts us 4 ahead of them. Brewers fans talked so much junk last season and at the beginning of this season, so glad to see them struggle.

Lol here we are right back where I said we would be , Cards stunk up the west coast trip. At that time it worried me. Now back within a Game of Cubs. It will come down to head to head most likely . However the Cards probably have a more favorable schedule down the stretch so who knows. Its going to be interesting and wouldn't have it any other way. I think your better off fighting to get in the playoffs than cruising in sometimes that has a negative effect.

I know it's far from over and we have some guys coming back from the IL.

 

I do wish they would go back to at least a 3 game series for the Wild Card teams.  All the effort to get a Wild Card birth and then have it be a one and done seems useless.

I wish they would to Barry.

Yesterday, I went to a community event and the local police department gave out Mets t-shirts. The message on the t-shirts:

Signed by our long-time Mets radio announcer Howie Rose (pictured). Mets have been doing a lot of that lately (winning), albeit against poor teams. Let's see how they play against the Nats.

They are still in the hunt

    • Also this year's IR is much different than last year's.  Three weeks and basically unlimited IR transactions.
    • Losing to the Jags down in Jax has become something that the Colts just do.  It would have been more surprising if they actually won the game down there honestly.  Indy has lost to the Jags before and then proceeded to make the post season so this is not quite the death nail that you are making it out to be.  Every season teams lose to some that they are favored to beat and beat a few they are expected to lose to.  That’s what happens in the NFL.  
    • Injuries played a huge part in that.  We had receivers on the field that were sitting on their couch when the season started.  Plus like it or not JBs injury also played a part. I know it was chic to put all the blame on him but IMO it was the total effect of all the injuries combined.  Our defense was gassed in the 2nd half of games because our offense couldn't maintain the ball. 
    • Jax gave TEN a run for their money and looked pretty good in that game.     TEN also barely beat Denver, who I don't think is very good at all this year.  So while they're in first in the conference they have barely won to two teams who  I don't think are that good.  The Texans are 0-2 but have lost to two powerhouses (KC and BAL).     Sure, it stings to lose to Jax in week 1.. but it's by no means the end of the world.  I do think, however, we almost have to win the AFC South to get a playoff bid, and I think that's very doable.  The Raiders have looked very good in the West and so have the Chiefs.  The Bills look good in the East and I can't imagine the Pats not racking up ~10 wins.  Then Baltimore and Pitt look like the real deal in the North.  My guess, as of right now would be the wildcard teams are going to come from the East (Pats) and the West (Raiders).. so it'll be important to go at least 4-2 in the division and win our gimme games (e.g., the Jets). 
    • He is not the the first Colts player to have a Vlog. A couple of years ago, the Colts signed WR Rodney Adams. There was at least one prominent Colts fan who said that he did not like that a player is doing vlogs. I think the difference here is that Pittman was drafted high by the Colts. Adams was cut a couple months after being signed.   I don't see why anyone would have a problem with vlogs. But I am pretty open to letting folks do as they please so long as they are not breaking rules and laws.
