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

I wonder if the Cards are playing a double header today? Cubs are actually 73-61 lol.

The Cardinals had to play 2 double-headers in a row.  I'm a bit afraid that 4 games in 2 days is going to mess with the arms of the rotation.

Cardinals took 3 of 4 in the back to back double headers.  Great weekend for them and they took game one of the series with the Giants.  It's tough to play 4 games in 2 days on any level, but if they go on to win the division, they may look back to this past weekend as a key series.  If they had lost 3 of 4, who know what kind of effect that could have had.

 

Back up to a 3 game lead as the playoff race intensifies.

What a meltdown! Sherzer vs deGrom. Mets led most of the game. 10-4 going to the bottom of the 9th. The Nats score 7 runs to win. SMH

 

Nail in the Coffin.

Cubs win 6-1 over the Mariners to improve to 75-63. Still in control of the final wildcard spot = 2.5 games ahead of the Phillies who are 72-65. Fly the flag Hozer. Just 24 games left folks.

Boy was it great to see Benny back out there!!! And Contreras with a HR at his first at bat after coming back??? Wow!!! Oh, and it would have been a shutout if the Ump wouldn’t have screwed up, that run should NOT have counted as he crossed after the third out....but oh well, CUBS WIN!!!! Hopefully Javy and MVP come back from injury soon.

The 1st WS ever played was in 1903. Since 1903 - 2019, (MLB history) the Cubs have never made the playoffs 5 seasons in a row.  The Cubs have a chance to make the playoffs 5 seasons in a row here in 2019 = 2015-2019 and we won the WS in 2016. That is the goal as of now, just making the playoffs. I would love to win the NL Central but just getting in gives us as good as chance of anyone winning it all. Lets say it does come down to us and the Nats in a 1 game wildcard game take all, who would you guys want pitching for the Cubs? I am not sure right now. Nats currently hold the 1st wildcard spot.

Who is Benny? As I am writing, I realize it is Zobrist. Lol :funny:

 

I'm thinking Benny Agbayani who was popular with Mets fans.

Yeah I agree it is 50/50 between those 2. I would probably roll with the Professor only because he has WS experience on the team. Right now I do not trust Lester, Yu, or Hamels in a 1 game situation.

Q is a close 2nd but I love the Professor's playoff experiences. By years end, maybe Hamels or Lester can get their groove back.

Phillies just lost again to the Reds, they are now 3.5 games behind the Cubs for that final Wildcard spot. The D-Backs are 3 games behind the Cubs and have the day off. Cubs start a tough 4 game road series at the Brewcrew tonight.

The Professor is Hendricks, I laughed because you said Yu. No thanks, not in a 1 game situation.

Is Quintana actually pitching better than Lester, Yu, and Hamels?

Yes Q has pitched well for a while now. Lester has had some stinkers lately and Hamels still doesn't look 100% healthy to me.

Yu in playoffs with previous teams= No Bueno.

 

Hopefully he has turned the corner, but still makes me nervous.

Yu has looked better but in a 1 game situation I do not trust him either. I always trusted Jake in that situation but Yu makes me nervous.

-Very nice! Cubs beat the BrewCrew 10-5. We widen the lead for that final Wildcard spot.

 

-The race for the final Wildcard spot heading into September 6th looks like this:

Cubs 76-63

D-backs 73-67 (3.5 back)

Phillies 72-67 (4 back)

 

-The NL Central standings look like this now:

Cards 79-61

Cubs 76-63 (2.5 back)

BrewCrew 71-68 (now 7.5 back lmao )

-Cubs are only 2.5 out of 1st in the NL Central, so winning the division is still possible.

 

-Fly the flag Hozer.

What is wrong with Cole Hamels?

 

Having hard time being himself after his injury, such a shame. Hope he can get it together....man we had a chance to get closer to the Cards since they lost, too! :Cry:

    • A ton of rookies are getting a ton of playing time in 2019 and most of them have impressed the heck out of me. Ya-Sin, Khari, Okereke, Banogu, have all shown me something. Parris Campbell had a rough season with all the injuries, but I'm confident whenever he manages to stay on the field, he will make plays and prove to be another solid pick by CB.
    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
