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. :)

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.

Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Pedro Strop has got to go.......

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

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

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.

    • And that is the major question behind all of the other decisions.  Just how close are we?  Do we keep "building for the future"?  Or do we decide "the future is now, let's go all in"?
    • https://nflcommunications.com/Pages/NFL-Network-Analyst-Daniel-Jeremiah-2020-NFL-Scouting-Combine-Conference-Call----Transcript-and-Audio.aspx   Thought some people might enjoy it.    I am just starting to listen, no idea if it will be good but if there is something interesting Colts related or QB related, etc. I will post later in the thread.    -QBs for him - tons of ability in this group but also some question marks.  -WRs and CBs are deep in this draft. Phenomenal WR class. RB class is good too.  -mentions Colts as potential QB spot among Bengals, Dolphins, Chargers, Panthers, Raiders, Colts, Bucs... -Jake Fromm - very impressive in person, very mature, engaging, you can see why he won over the locker room. The concern - arm-strength - ball dies on some throws -some teams think Andrew Thomas might be RT -Adam Trautman, Harrison Bryant and Cole Kmet are his top 3 TEs. Brycen Hopkins - 4th-5th round grade, developmental prospect, too many drops and needs to be better blocking -He seems to like Austin Jackson much better than most people I've read. Says he might jump up boards after the combine.  -teams are all over the map with Jacob Eason. One team Jeremiah has heard from has him as their QB2.  Big arm, bad habbits - trying to wheel out and turns his back to the defense when pressured. Needs to be a bit more of a playmaker instead of just being pure thrower. Needs to create some plays and extend some plays. R1 or R2.  -Derrick Brown - same grade as Chase Young... closest thing to Ndamukong Suh - Kevin Bowen question "How would you handle the QB dilemma for the Colts with #13 and the 2 2nd round picks?" - DJ answer: "I would start by signing Philip Rivers and I would try to make a run at it in the next couple of years because I think they are pretty close. I think Rivers will come in and give them an upgrade. And then you are picking at 13... and I know there is so much depth at WR, but if I'm the Colts I would be awfully tempted and see a Jerry Jeudy, Ceedee Lamb, Henry Ruggs... if one of those 3 guys were there I think I'd go and pull the trigger right there. Now you change your offense completely - you have a good OLine, you pair what you have outside with one of those 3 receivers and Phillip Rivers, I think you will have the chance to be a really fun offense to watch. Now you go second round and you have other directions you can go... at that point if there is a QB you like... a developmental QB... you can go that route or you can just go DT that has some real twitch and some upside that can rush. Neville Gallimore from Oklahoma would make some sense there, he has some twitch and real pass rush ability. Jordan Elliot from Missouri  is another name that can come into the mix, another guy that can rush inside. They are in a great spot, I'm just curious to see what they do with the QB position first and foremost. If they decide to stick with JB and want to go towards the draft... at that point and time Jordan Love ... I don't think he's ready to play right away, but man.... that is a huge upside pick. You got a chance to let him develop and have a huge payoff. 
    • If we end up with the same bad QB play this year with the future not being drafted this year yes he will be on the hot seat. If Jacoby is the starter and doesn’t improve but we have the future we draft in April on the team he won’t be on the hot seat. 
    • What's being implied here? Backlash from the media? 
    • They send out surveys and I’ve expressed on them. I don’t know how much control the team has over how the city controls the traffic. They are trying to protect the drunk pedestrians. In the past I’ve had a drunk pedestrian walk into my car!  What they’ve done seems like overkill now.
