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

Recommended Posts

Can't hold a 5-1 lead with 1 out in the 9th, that is complete garbage. Cards lost as well but at this point it doesn't even matter. We aren't winning crap this season. How does a team blow a 5-1 lead in the 9th inning with 1 out? Worse lost of the season and it's not even close. Our bullpen just flat stinks, telling it like it is. Nobody blows that kind of lead in 1 inning.

We might end up having to eat crow in the Darvish/Arrietta deal my friend. Yu is looking like the player Theo wanted all along. 10 strikeouts tonight, hasn’t had a walk in over 4 starts...not too shabby! Arrietta is hurt and out for season, kind of a flip flop of last season.  Time will tell.

 

Can we give PT some :applause::applause:??  

 

PT is the Princeton, IN man. :)

Hozer will be angry tonight.

I feel like that right now, that was complete nonsense. We have a little league bullpen right now. So ridiculous.

I am like one of the most positive persons you will ever meet and tonight was just a disaster. We can't hold a 5-0 lead. Something isn't right with this team, bullpen is an obvious problem but something else is going on IMO. If we do not get our act together, we will be watching the post season from our couches.

Am I the only one happy here now?   

I'd be more happy had the Reds not beat my Cards,  but I was thinking we would go down a game to the Cubs.

Last night was terrible. I do not want to jinx it but hey we play the craptastic Pirates now lmao . If we can't win 2 out 3 vs them then we are toast. After these 3 games, that will make 64 on the road and just 60 at home. Cards and Cubs still tied for 1st as of August 16th.

1-0 Pirates in the 6th. Hendricks having a decent night, bats have gone silent....again.

 

In other Cubs news, Russell was recalled from Iowa, Almora sent down. I don't like that move, although sometimes I feel the whole team should be sent down.

2-2 bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, bases loaded. Kintzler walks the tying run in a second ago. I have a sick feeling this is not going to end well against the Pirates. Bote with a crucial error earlier, he’s been making a lot of those lately.

The Cardinals beat the Reds.   Cards are 1 game up on the Cubs.

I'd still put my money on the Cubs winning the division.  That much talent on a team has to put it together.   The Cards are a just over .500 roster.   Historical numbers show the Cubs should have a better batting average. 

Cubs team batting average - .254

Cards team batting average - .242

 

Cubs team ERA - 4.12

Cards team ERA - 4.00

There is a major funk in that clubhouse, somethings got to shake out. I think big changes could be coming. The Cards are a dangerous team that are getting hot at the right time, as are the Reds.

Problem is we are not winning the close games, we win games big but then lose a lot of close one's like tonight. The Bullpen strikes again :wall:

We are now up 2-0 in the 9th. We need this win badly. A win here and a Cards loss and we would be tied for 1st again despite the shenanigans that have been going on.

This year's crop of major free agent relievers has been a $250 million disaster

 

https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb-relievers-free-agency-david-robertson-yankees-000217587.html
 

Quote

If any fans feel annoyed this offseason about their team for not spending to strengthen the bullpen, they might want to go ahead and look at what is happening this year....

(read article for more)

 

The article goes on to show that almost all the relievers that got big contracts are doing poorly. The two that have performed well are Yankees relievers (Britton and Ottavino?). The author blames this partly on the juiced ball.

Reds seem to give other teams a lot of trouble. 

 

Speaking of juiced ball, Pete Alonso has hit 39 HRs and this rookie player for the Reds is the fastest to 11 HR. @hippiejohn must be ecatatic.

Rizzo with a huge blast! He put a light out haha . Cubs playing Cubs baseball, up 7-0 tonight. Go ahead and fly the flag Hozer, this baby is over already  lmao . I never call it this early but we are not blowing this lead. 7-0 to the bottom of the 5th.

 

After the 10 game road trip we will be tied for 1st in the NL Central. That is really all I wanted because the Cards have had an easy schedule while have been on the road for nearly 2 weeks. We will now have 6 straight at home where we are a different animal baby!

Officially tied for 1st again in the NL Central, Cubs win, fly the flag Hozer.

 

NL Central standings heading into August 19th:

Cards 65-57

Cubs 66-58

Brewers 64-60 (2 back)

Reds 58-65 (7.5 back)

Pirates 51-72 (14.5 back)

 

Cubs 10 game road trip over, thankfully. Cubs get a much needed rest tomorrow and do not play on Monday. Next 3 games are against the Giants at Wrigley. Hamels pitches Tuesday :thmup:

So....Cubs shut the Pirates out into the bottom of the 9th with another stellar Quintana outing,  Kimbrell our Supertstar closer comes in and gives up a home run in his first pitch. Now Strop is in, lmao, if the bullpen gives this game up I will blow a gasket!

 

 

*update....game over Cubs win, whew!!!

Lol ill raise your Cubs and hand me the Cards . Cards have a very important factor besides a very dangerous line up. The third best bull pen in the MLB . Anything can happen , and if they bench Carpenter for the hot hand , it bolsters their offense greatly. They wont wait long to do it. My guess if he doesn't pick it during current series.

It's 50/50 at this point on who wins the division IMO. It will come down to the head to head games these 2 teams play at the end of the season. I still lean toward the Cards winning the division because their pitching is slightly better and their lineup is just as good. Both lineup's are dangerous. Cubs at worse should get in as a Wildcard.

    • Incorrect terminology on my part. It's a roster bonus and not a signing bonus. Kevin Bowen had mentioned this on 1070 last week too.   https://overthecap.com/player/jacoby-brissett/4804/  
    • There is always an example that will support either sticking with JB as a smart idea, as well as an example of moving on from JB, as a smart idea. Fans tend to use whatever example supports which choice they personally want. Folks tend to cite the current situation with the Steelers as evidence that moving on is a good idea, yet ignore how moving on has served the Browns. There is no one answer fits all.   In this, I bow to the braintrust of Reich/Ballard. Frank was a very astute QB, knows what the position takes, and I feel he has a good pulse of what Jacoby brings to the table, both on the field and off, as well as preparation, meetings, practices and so on. I have seen Jacoby look like the guy that could become the long term QB for the Colts, and I have seen him look like a QB that has too low of a ceiling. How much of that is circumstance, is the proof in the pudding.    That said, I believe that the upcoming draft and FA opportunities for the Colts are really important, but every year is really important. I don't think this offseason "defines" Ballard's legacy any more than every year does. They're all extremely important.  
    • We need playmakers. i thought Pittsburgh was crazy to give a 1st for Minkah.   i was mistaken.   our depth is much better than past seasons.  If a game-changing talent is there... take him.  Otherwise, because of our top of 2nd pick, we can gather picks.  We could also move up if we want.  Im gonna trust in Ballard and not stress about it.   i heard that orangutan Has already met with Jim and Chris to discuss the upcoming draft.
    • Cowboys only have one tag.  It looks like it's either Dak or Cooper.  I think there best bet is to resign him before FA.  
    • Both safety Jamal Adams and DT Quinnen Williams are out for this game thus increasing the probability of Lamar on the ground. Yes, Brees in MNF at home has always been rock solid but Lamar’s floor is 20 points and ceiling is 30 points, do you think Brees’ floor is the same?
