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

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.

Ha, no problem, I've got two TV's connected to cable in my living room.

Just switch between audio from the feeds... yes I am a sports junkie!

Can't everything is closed, you can only get carry out food.

 

I know. I was joking.

 

I did not realize basketball was still taking place.

 

The Cubs are doing well. I hope the season will continue but Rob Manfred seemed to indicate that they may have to terminate the season. That would be terrible.

Not good news for the Mets

     Yoenis Cespedes is AWOL in Atlanta and Jed Lowrie has been placed on the 45 day IL after only 7 AB so JL made 2,857,142.86 an AB

 

   @NFLfan

 

Lol. That is why I don't like to spend big money on free agents.

To the bottom of the 11th, 1-1. That crowd noise sounds real. That is one thing baseball did get right lmao .

 

Did the extra innings start with a guy on second base? As I wrote before, I am not crazy about it.

I dont think he will, I dont think he had medical condition to warrant it and that is how they get paid, otherwise you just can opt out and no pay.

They need the money since they paid Jed Lowrie 20M for 7 ABs

Lol. They need the money for a lot more. They are still paying Bobby Bonilla. I hear that will end in 2035 or so. What a smart move by him. He has money coming to him well into his 60s.

 

The Mets need to learn that free agency is not always the way to go. The Mets have been burned by almost every older high-priced free agent they have acquired. (Mo Vaugn, Jason Bay, Michael Cuddyer, so many more.)

They will be paying Cano until he is 40 at least

Yeah the 10th and 11th innings did it. I don't like that rule either but today the Cubs benefited from it haha

I enjoyed the rule but grew up around it

    It makes the Coaches and D step up their play

In the post game interview, David Ross seems to like it as well. He was saying you really have to manage well and use smart strategy to overcome that obstacle. I still like the old way better though.

The best record in the AL so far is the Yankees at 8-1. Best record in the NL so far is the Cubs at 8-2. I guess if they cancel the season those 2 teams should share the WS Title lmao 

Actually the NBA thought about doing that with Bucks and Lakers a couple of months ago because they had the 2 best records in their conference.

5-4 Cubs win again over the Royals. 9-2 is a sizzling hot start. Our bullpen still scares me haha .

    • It's called being injured.  But don't let that get in the way of you knowing everything. 
    • Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State, is a  difference maker. He’s creeping into late Round 1 consideration. Just watching him vs Texas, great body control.
    • Depends on pick..for a high 3 rd maybe
    • I absolutely hate how Reich handled the A.V. situation last year when A.V. was losing games for us and it was clear there was a problem and Reich did nothing until.....too late. I think that if Rivers plays poorly against the better teams that are coming on our schedule, Reich will stay with Rivers until it's too late. Call me an iconoclast but I don't subscribe to the idea that the only solution for the QB position is QB#1 all the time and QB#2 never sees the field unless injury or the season is "over". A Colts fan from 1967 I never lived in either of the Colts home markets and living in the Bay Area I saw all the Lamonica/Blanda games in the 1970 season (if you don't know what happened that season look it up as it's NFL history worth knowing) and it made an impression, even though the Morton/Staubach Cowboy teams advanced the "only one QB" case to the opposite. The A.V. situation and the going for it on 4th obsession made me question if Reich coaches with his head or his heart, I see his judgement as suspect although I don't hate him.
    • My response wasn't emotional.  There are business decisions that go beyond the talent vs pick equation.    Its not like we have decided we don't why TY back next year.  And the 4th round pick is just going to get us more depth JAGS, which we already have aside from Pittman and Campbell, both of whom are second round picks that the new 4th round guy won't displace.   All we're doing is risking losing TY if he plays better, with only our typical off the team/on the team revolving door talent to replace him this year.   And, if we keep him this year and he signs elsewhere in the spring, we might get a 4th round pick anyway, albeit a year later.   To me, it all adds up to keeping a family member in the family hoping that production improves, until the employment contract runs out.  Then you talk business.
