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

It finally started working today! Watching replay of Rockies game right now, looks like Lester had a rough outing, hoping he gets those out of the way early this year, last year didn’t end well for him.

For Lester it is hard to look at the ST start and think much of it. He is ramping up and thus his velocity wont be as high and he is normally working on more specific things. Also, there was some bad play by defense that cost him baserunners and then runs. With our regular in (Rizzo at first mostly I mean) They most likely wouldnt have had the same stats up as they did. If his velocity isnt fully back by the end of ST then there is worry.

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 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.

I just got my 2016 Cubs Championship plaque delivered by UPS. I never spend any money on myself and save every thing I make. It cost me 300 dollars haha . This will go on my Cubs Wall of Fame corner. I have a 2016 Championship hat, a 2016 Championship shirt, a Ryne Sandberg jersey and a Kris Bryant jersey. My plaque looks like this showing the Game 7 starters and winning Pitcher of the 2016 WS:

 

CF - Dexter Fowler

DH - Kyle Schwarber

3B - Kris Bryant (MVP)

1B - Anthony Rizzo

LF - Ben Zobrist

SS - Addison Russell

C - Willson Contreras

RF - Jason Heyward

2B - Javier Baez (el Mago) 

=lineup in order.

P - Kyle Hendricks (the Professor)

 

+winning Pitcher - Aroldis Chapman in relief.

 

Cubs defeat Indians 4 games to 3 to win the 2016 World Series Championship!

MLB officially suspended the season by 2 weeks at this point with spring training suspended too

 

And I was so ready for baseball season, too!  I guess it's the safe thing to do, but what a bummer.

What a bummer. In all honesty though I would have a 132 game season instead of a 162 game season. 162 is too long. I would start May 1st every year when it is warm out and the playoffs/WS would be over by the end of October, around the 31st. I like the way the playoff format is, so I would keep it the same except the WildCard game would be best of 3.

I am too, especially since I was to go to Texas teams in April and looks unlikely now and even my CA trip for games is now hard to do.

I am disappointed season will be delayed and possibly canceled . In the grand scheme of things it pales in comparison to everything that's going on. We shall see what transpires. My thought and word is fear not , live in the faith of our Lord and look up for your redemption draws nigh. Love you all.

Sorry I really haven't had anything to add to the thread lately but because of the Coronavirus there hasn't been nothing new going on in Baseball. Everyone take care, wash your hands, and use social distancing. 

 

Yep, not much to discuss.  I have had two of my three fantasy drafts go as scheduled...the third has been postponed until there's some new about when the season may start.

 

Nice distractions, but still nothing to do until there are some games in order to set line-ups, etc.

 

Hope eveyone is okay and avoiding this virus...it's just unreal.

One of the local cases(Daviess County, Ky) was because of a Coronavirus Party

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. @HOZER, @Jay Kirk, @NFLfan, @PrincetonTiger, @Barry Sears, @PuntersArePeopleToo, @Myles, @buccolts, and too all others be well and try to stay healthy. Baseball will be back eventually. Of course this is the home of the 2016 World Champion Chicago Cubs :thmup: - I had to add that :funny:.

 

@NorthernBlue, I didn't forget about you. What your team did last season was much like what the Cubs did in 2016. Just awesome. The Nats and Cubs are really the only 2 legit Champions over the last 5 seasons. Astros and RedSox cheated.

Yes I'm ok as well . My job considered essential , so yes I'm working . We have live cases of people in the plant that have been quarentened  . If you heard about the firefighter in Terre Haute that died , his wife works in HR in our plant and has also tested positive according to reports I've gotten . I and my wife have been taking many supplements to boost immune system . Vitamin C with Zinc 1000mg Echinasea , Golden Seal , Genseng  . So far so good. Baseball would be good right now .

You are mistaken, this is the home of the 2011, 2006, 1982, 1967, 1964, 1946, 1944, 1942, 1934, 1931 and 1926 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.

So much is up in the air now.   If they cannot play until July or August, should they even have a season?

Good question , and to me that would be a farce.

Hi Jay, good to hear from you. Sorry to hear that about your colleagues. My job has also had folks diagnosed with COVID-19 but no one in my department. One woman's husband died. Most of my job's clientele are those over 60 years old. Yesterday, I heard that we lost something like 42 clients to COVID. Yikes. 

 

Anyway, I hope you and your family stay well.

That's good. That is what my mother tells us to do. She said she is drinking/consuming food with Vitamin C, Ginger, Garlic, and a lot of other immune-boosting stuff. My mom (80 years old) has never had the flu and I remember her having a cold just once. She attributes it to her diet.

I think there may be a season now just by the way people are talking in the government and sports world. I didn't think so a week ago.  They need to start it by June though otherwise it will be a real short season haha . I could live with 100 games.

Yeah I am supervisor where I am at dealing with trucks bringing food product in. Lots of paper work and inventory involved. I have my own office luckily so I can distance myself at times from people and chat here late at night when I work nights when it gets quiet. I am off today. So not only do I have to deal with truck drivers but several others where I work at lol. High risk should be my nick name.

I could be working from home, but my wife and 2 daughters are there and I wouldn't be very productive.

Yeah, but you gotta be thankful you're still working. There's plenty of people supporting families who aren't working right now.

 

I know there's going to be a lot of 'why are you putting people at risk' and/or 'all you care about is wall street' banter, but they need to get the economy going again, as soon as possible.

    • If the league has to add games to the end of the season they will just push back the playoffs. They might be able to switch some bye weeks around also.  
    • Too many stalled drives before we too the foot off. Run game did not surprise me given NYJ were 2nd best vs the run last year. The INTs didn't really equate to lost possessions. They were simply an interruption in an opponent's possession that gave us points. 
    • I strongly disagree. We have plenty of talent on O. Game plan, play calling, and personnel choice in situational downs have been highly questionable. The pass/run mix game 1 was heavy pass, and just didn't make sense vs Jax, and especially in game 1 after no preseason with the RBs we had to start the year. The heavy run in G2 was an overreaction to G1. The heavy run in G3 was just silly given it's the Jet's strength.   Reich has a history of not attacking a teams weakness while going heavy against their strengths (see Miami last year). Play calling in general, has been predictable and conservative. I'll cut him a break there since perhaps he doesn't want to show much this early, but if he doesn't open things up soon, I'll have to scratch my head on that too. Maybe it's partly covid, but other teams look far more dynamic. We had WRs and TEs open all game Sunday, and needed to get some of the young WRs experience. It was a lost opportunity.   And IMO, even JB regressed with Reich from 2017 to 2019. The stats were very similar, but JB in 2019 had a heck of a lot better OL, and was sacked half the amount he was in 2017.    I really like Frank as a person, but it's not like his track record can't be questioned. In his two years in Phily as OC, Pederson called the plays so not much to glean from. In his two years as OC in LA, he had horrible balance both years, and was fired after being last in the league rushing and a 4-12 record. He's not all the much better than Pagano thus far, and has a much better roster.    Not saying at all we need to fire Frank, or anything like that. I am saying though he's not done anything extraordinary thus far though. He's got no excuses this year.   I agree. I can understand him not playing early last year when we had Doyle and Ebron both, but we should absolutely see him get a good snap share this year. Maybe short term a little, but honestly I'm not worried. We did fine when he was out last year. Williams had two 100 games in a row when Mack was out. Taylor will be fine with our OL. Having Taylor and Mack was an embarrassment of riches, but we're just fine with Taylor/Wilkins/Hines.   Again, IMO, goes back to game plan. We didn't run the ball a bunch against a team (Jax) that was 5th worst in the league vs the run last year. Then, we ran the ball a lot vs MN (better than they appear vs the run) and NYJ (who were 2nd best vs the run last year). Sorry, that just doesn't make sense.   Then add in things like using Hines between the tackles in goal line situations. Luck leaving was the only truly big issue. Pagano had to deal with Luck being gone a year too, and gimpy a few other years. Pagano did better (record wise) his first 3 years with a healthy Luck, then Reich did with a healthy Luck in 2018, and had a better roster on both sides, especially OL.  Not really. Rivers did great using a ton of different pass catchers this week, when allowed to throw. And we had guys wide open all game. Mo did fine in Doyle's place. Both Hines and Taylor are catching the ball well and are 22/23 on targets. TY looked better this week. Pascal is still there. Fountain got his feet wet. Taylor's AVG was good running. Our OL has been balling out and Rivers only sacked twice (on track for only 11 total this year).
    • Goodness. This is how the outbreaks start.   The first real test of NFL protocols. Let’s hope they can get a handle on it.
