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


Recommended Posts

My sister must have had a good time at Wrigley. I asked her via text message if the Cubs won. Her reply:

 

"Yes! They won! Amazing game."

 

She is not a baseball fan but she goes to many games with her colleagues. She attended Jeter's last game.

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

It was a great game for Cubs fans so hence she could be one

I asked her just that. She replied:

 

"Lol . No but I enjoyed the game and the stadium is really nice"

She likes them, who doesn't get attached to a World Champion :sarcasm:. Great game today, Cubs dominated. So far the Dodgers did nothing to show me they can take the Title away. We didn't have to face Kershaw but Jake didn't pitch either. How about those Reds!

Do you play the Reds next? When do the Cubs play the Mets?

I agree. Maddux struggled early but became one of the best of all-time. Brock was a base stealing machine.

Also a lifetime 315 batting average and very good defensive player. Maddux was lights out.

It's 1-1 now, I was just outside talking to my parents neighbor because I am still over there. He is taking his daughter to the Pacers/Cavs Game 3. She loves sports, she is only 10 years old and knows the rosters to every team in the NBA LOL.

We lost 4-2. Had bases loaded and Zobrist grounded out in the 9th. We keep losing the 1st game of every series.

 

Sorry about that. Zobrist would have had a walk-off hit last year. He was that clutch. 

 

It is a marathon, not a sprint. Still too early to panic or get too excited.

The Mets won yesterday in 16 innings. We need Thor to go deep today, as the bullpen is taxed. That Marlin lineup has no easy outs. Before yesterday's game, they were hitting over .300 (~.315) with men in scoring position.

I agree 100%. As long at the Cubs can play .500 ball in April and May I will be fine. I think they will be better than that but for the 1st 2 months .500 is acceptable.

Check out this wonderful story. Rod Carew, a baseball legend, received a heart transplant and another organ from a former professional football player, Konrad Reuland who played TE for the Ravens and the Jets. Reuland recently died of an aneurysm; he was not even 30 yet. 

 

There is a video in the second link showing Carew and his family meeting Reuland's family.  It was great to read and see.

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

 

Twenty years ago, I went to Jackie Robinson Day at Shea Stadium. His wife was there, as was the baseball commissioner and some other important people. They revealed then that #42 would be retired and could only be worn by those wearing the number at that time (like Mariano Rivera). That was the first and I believe  the only baseball game that I attended alone. It was in the middle of the week and I went after work. I met some nice people who were surprised that "a young woman like you" would take time to attend this game. haha  

 

I was pleased that I got to see something that special. I met and spoke with older people who were alive at that time and they shared their stories. That is one of the great things about doing things alone -- you get to meet and talk with those you otherwise would not.

 

Enjoy baseball today. Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. :)

Beautiful story NFLfan. It's hearing about things we experience such as this that gives us joy in knowing we are alive.

 

I read the links & watched the videos you posted in the previous post. Simply breathtaking. I was not even aware of Rod Carew's condition before.

 

I hope you & your family & all the members here have a wonderful Easter. I'm hoping to watch my Yankees take game #2 from the Cards today.

Thank you! The same to you and your family.

 

Have the Yankees won 5 in a row? I believe I heard that on WFAN earlier. What about Tanaka! He got the win. Yanks playing the Cards? Seems strange this early in the year.

 

Enjoy the game.

    • We know... we are all here because we love the game and we love the colts, can you please stop acting like the forum shrink - it's nauseating lol. We as fans are allowed to comment what we want on this forum, its not always going to be rainbows and daisies, deal with it. We all want to see the colts win and when we s*** the bed on a sunday afternoon we are allowed to have a vent and discuss where we need improving etc even if that does occasionally come with some over reaction sprinkled in. You probably thought this was a random comment to quote but its a build up of your posting as a whole and I chose to reply to this one lol.   Anywayyy, Phil did have a good game against the Bengals no doubt, but he has been very average or perhaps below average for the most part. I hope he can hang with some of the better teams we have coming up on our schedule but I do have my doubts that we will see more of the bengals type play from him very often.         
    • we'll see where we're at right after the Ravens game
    • You could be right, but the certainty with which you talk is a bit premature and lacks the fragility of how the league frequently pans out. 
    • Yep. We are going to get beat by the Ravens, packers, twice by the titans, split with the Texans and then the Steelers. So an 8-8 season and maybe worse bc imo the Lions and raiders games could go either way. Just don't think this Colts team is good enough to beat the top tier teams and it's a toss-up with mediocre to bad teams.
