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

I just got an anonymous call on my phone which I usually don't answer when I don't see a number I recognize. I answered it and the person said SOX and hung up.  I have no clue who it was  

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.

11 Marlin's Players have tested positive for Covid. Their game tonight is postponed as well as the Phillies where they just played. BAL is planning to return home from Miami and if they do play it would be games in BAL per reports.

 

COVID-19 is creating lots of problems. I can't see how football will be played. Some football players (OL, DL) are at higher risk because of their weight. It is a mess.

Basketball has it right, hardly nobody is testing positive because they are in a bubble. The NBA is going to finish the season IMO.

Cubs up 6-0 over the Reds after the 2nd. Great stuff!

Reds just don’t have it tonight. This makes the David Bell’s decisions against the Tigers even more baffling.

It is indeed a mess.

What is a bubble? Is the NBA playing now? I thought their season starts in October or November?

I was surprised when I seen the score.

Yeah. Moustakas is out with an “illness”, and I’m wondering if the virus is in some of the player’s heads tonight with everything going on.

Fly the flag Hozer, Cubs win 8-7. Now 3-1 on the season. Reds had one hell of a comeback but we held them off. We are now 3-1 in the division, I will take that all day. Lester got the win.

Yup, was sweating bullets there at the end. Will take the W whatever

 

(I was cussing the bullpen... full disclosure) LOL

Yeah that was a gut wrenching ending especially with Votto up with bases loaded. Kimbrel isn't cutting the mustard in my book, he wasn't good last year either. I miss Chapman.

oprah winfrey relax GIF

Well it was nice to see the Reds actually show up. For a while there I thought it was gonna be the same ole Reds. 
 

 

I felt like I was going have heart attack following that game, I was at work on top of it lmao . Reds are dangerous. I thought for sure the Reds were going to win when Votto came up with bases loaded. I even told a co-worker it is over haha .

Votto’s usually clutch for that stuff, but he’s not the player he used to be for sure.

Also don't forget about the NHL. They begin in Aug. 1 with their qualifying games. They are in Edmonton WC and Toronto EC for that  and Stanley Cup will be in Toronto. They too will be in a bubble environment

As 2006 said only one guy, and he was out of bubble for funeral originally, not stuck in quarantine for 10 days. Anyone else who leaves bubble gets a few days.

I am curious with him, He had the last two nights with game tying run on third. I am use to him normally being able to drive them in. I wonder if it is his age or something else

Yeah, I think it’s in his head. He’s been ace early for each game, but when it’s all on him at the end he seems to fade. 
 

Moustakas being out has really been noticeable, which is saying something considering we only got him for one game haha...

    • I don't understand this reasoning behind the WR position.  They made two very high draft choices the last 2 seasons at WR.  Campbell certainly has elite "talent", whether or not he will be a good pro is impossible to discern by his performance since he has been able to play so little.  I was skeptical of Pittman because of the speed numbers, but he was  a highly regarded prospect.     I whole heartedly agree with what you say about being at the crossroads for the WR position.  I guess I just hope someone sells their soul so we can get a QB who plays like Charlie Daniels played the fiddle and Robert Johnson played the guitar. 
    • Here's the thing for me.  The Colts really have not been able to do what they planned to do because of personnel issues, so it is hard to see how good they might be if they switch up gears.   I think they toyed with the idea of going to a more power type of running style because they had the fullback on the squad but decided to stick with the Mack outside/inside zone stuff that was effective while he was in there the last two years.  I think they wanted to run this stretch action and couple it with alot of deep crossers to Campbell and this is a great combo.  The stretch play opens up the play action when it holds the backers and Campbell could run right behind them in front of the safeties.  To do this effectively, that long handoff is the key.  You also can screen that when you get a big upfield rush from the line. I don't think Taylor has shown he can be very effective at this type of play yet.  Apparently, we don't have anyone who the staff thinks can run that crosser effectively.     Now with Mack out, Campbell out, musical chairs at TE, TY's drop issues earlier, etc., I think it's hard to run the type of offense that they planned on and JT is not a versatile type of back right now that can do "different" things.  He in all likelihood needs to have a more quick hitting power running philosophy.     I think the early easier schedule makes it difficult to tell how well we've adjusted.  Even the Lions are a little better.  The next 5 weeks are probably as brutal a stretch as there will be in football.   I say all this to say that I think Rivers has done pretty well despite the circumstances.  He is the guy I wanted the Colts to sign in the first place.  But if we are going to run into the problems I think we will run into this next month or so, having a guy who could make plays after the play breaks down might be essential.     I've been saying we will know where we stand after the next 5 weeks, but I think Lions and Ravens will tell us a lot.  
    • The top QBs will be gone by the time Colts pick so Colts have several options:   . Select best available OT or DE and re-sign Rivers.    . Select best available OT or DE and start Eason and draft his backup late.   I hadn't done tons of research. Is there going to be a QB in 20s range to draft? One that would certainly start over Eason. Because if not you might as well start Eason.
    • Great GM for roster depth and complete team.   However, high value positions like WR and pass rusher, definitely lacking in top notch talent drafted or seeing results on the field, it is like we have been waiting for a while for the next WR behind TY to produce. He cannot continue to draft like he has Andrew Luck anymore, hoping the QB will elevate those positions, even if we sign vet QBs in their home stretch. The QB, WR and pass rusher positions cover up roster depth blemishes faster than most positions. No wonder Polian was successful for so long with the draft and inferior depth on D and special teams.   We are at a cross roads w.r.t the QB position. We either double down on free agent/vet QBs while drafting for the future simultaneously and continue to do that for the next 2 years while drafting for the high value positions OR pull a big trade for a QB we think can be a franchise QB for 6-7 years.
