Jay Kirk Baseball Thread since 2017: The 2021 season, Dodgers Repeat?

Yes there are some really good teams , Lol reason I wont make a prediction until All Star break . It lets me have a feel of where teams are at . What key pieces are missing so on . In all honesty should wait till after Trade deadline. I know the Cards are already set to pick up any key pieces they need at that time. They are serious about this and intend to be there at the end.:thmup:

It's better to make predictions at the All-Star break because the stretch run starts after that and we have more of a feel on who's good and who's bad. I went ahead and gave my prediction now and will look back on it at the break to see if I am on course. The season is so long that really in April and May as long as you stay around .500 your team is fine.

For giggles I'll pick my Division winners, NLCS and ALCS, and WS with this Post:

AL East - Boston RedSox

AL Central - Cleveland Indians

AL West - Houston Astros (different from last yr)

NL East - Washington Nationals

NL Central - Chicago Cubs

NL West - SF Giants (different from last yr)

ALCS - Boston RedSox over Cleveland Indians 4-3

NLCS - Chicago Cubs over SF Giants 4-2

WS - Chicago Cubs over Boston Redsox 4-3

 

-We will see how close I come with these before picks. I may be way off but then again I may nail most of these. The NL West is tough because I think the Dodgers are just as good as the Giants are and I think the Dodgers will make the Playoffs as a WildCard. I pick the Giants to win the Division though. The Cards are my other WildCard in the NL edging out the NY Mets. Not all of the same teams will make the Playoffs from last season so something has to give, I think Cards get in this season.

I think the Mets will be right there and possibly take the East and I know some may think different but the Cards have a legit chance in the Central it will be a Brawl lol to the end , possibly in all 3 NL divisions. I'm excited for this year in baseball , and very interested maybe even more than in the past because of this.

I am actually rooting for the Mets in the East. I have always liked them and that is NFLfan's team as well. The Nationals though have a lot of firepower. I think it's a 2 team race in the NL Central between the Cubs/Cards. I don't think the Cubs run away with anything this season. They went 103-58 last season which wont happen again. I have the Cubs around 95 wins. I will say 95-67 for them if they stay relatively healthy. Health is always a key to these predictions.

I agree I really think the Cards are setting in better position overall when it comes to injury , they have players in both the field and pitching that are ML ready . If the Cubs stay healthy I give them the nod by a slim margin. I think people will be shocked at M Wacha hes strengthened his shoulder and it shows his commands been good and velocity back was hitting in 97 mph range in spring , last year he was lucky to be in 92 to 93 range . That makes his change up devastating . Lynn looks really good coming back from TJ surgery . Question witch Adam Wainwright will we see ?

I am not sure we will see a 100 win team this season? The RedSox might win 100. I see the Indians around 95 like the Cubs. Giants, Nats, Cards, Dodgers, and Mets in the low 90's = 91/92 just guessing, like I said I may be off but looking at the rosters those are my early projections. I think the Cubs and Cards will only be separated by 2 or 3 games at the end if they both stay healthy.

I agree I doubt we do but 2 years ago we had 3 in the Central pushing the mark.

I agree. I would feel better with HFA. Having said that the Cubs still managed to win without it but I would still rather have it. Last seasons WS about gave me a heart attack playing Game 7 in Cleveland and knowing the Cubs should've been at home because they had a better record. I wish they would change that rule to best record gets HFA.

I loved it , its what the WS should be like 2 prize fighters going down to the wire . Glad the Cubs won but wouldn't have griped if the Indians had the way they fought .

It was one of the best Game 7's I have witnessed. Had the Cubs lost I would've still said that. It had me so sick to my stomach I couldn't even eat. When Chap gave up the HR I felt like puking haha. That game was driving me nuts but in a good way.

Looks like Lester vs Martinez will be the Pitching matchup come Sunday night. Interesting. Love that it is a night game, I am off work Sunday and Monday.

 

I am looking forward to watching that game. Should be a good one. Should we have a separate game thread??? "Opening Day Game Thread"?

Not sure about the separate thread. I am good either way. If you or Jay want to create one that is ok with me if not we can just Post here. Yeah I cant wait for tomorrow. Your big day is Monday = Braves at Mets. Are you taking Monday off?

Prediction time:

 

Who will play in the World Series this Oct/Nov? Who wins?

 

Jay is right. How can we make a prediction now? But just for fun, I will make one:

 

Indians beat the Nationals in 6 games

 

Just be happy I did not pick your team. Everyone I predict to win loses. haha That is why I won't pick the Mets. ;)

I won't be taking off. :(  We are short staffed right now. And a few of us have missed work because of illness. So, it's not a good time to take off. I may go to a game next weekend. 

 

You're right. We don't need to have a separate thread.

I just love the fact you made a prediction. They are always fun to do so we can look back on it throughout the season. Your prediction is pretty reasonable and may happen. The same 2 teams making the WS rarely happens nor does Repeating as Champs. The Indians are borderline great, the Nats have a lot of firepower as well. I will stick with Cubs over RedSox in 7 games. I am going against the odds and predict a Repeat but the AL opponent will be the Sox this year not the Indians.

I am listening to sports radio. The host Jody McDonald predicted a Cubs repeat.

Baseball starts April 2nd, cant wait. Cubs at St. Louis. It's been a fun offseason enjoying the Championship, now it's time to get focused on going Back to Back. A lot of challengers like the Cards, Dodgers, Giants, Nats, and Mets in the NL. It should be an interesting ride. I will be curious to see if the Indians will Repeat as AL Champions. RedSox look damn great on paper.

Tomorrow!!!  Good luck to all of our teams!!!  :clover:

This is probably the best Thread on this Site as far as regular Posters go. We have our disagreements at times but we all get along and respect the other persons favorite team. As a Cubs fan I respect the Cards bigtime, they are one of the best organizations of all-time.

    • Beats me.   But generally speaking, I think having teams "prove their innocence" by measuring how many minorities are hired...and incentivizing it if the results aren't good enough.... is a method that creates weird processes that defy common sense, IMO, if not defying the spirit of rule making and enforcement.   LIke the rooney rule.  Requiring minorities to be "interviewed" means nothing when it comes to deciding who to hire from a pool of interviewed candidates.   Now, many people are seeing the flaws with the process, because the process is weird.  It lacked common sense the day it was passed.  And they admit it now because they are not getting the results they want. Just backwards as *.  A rational process doesn't make decisions like that.  That's why I called it nonsense.
    • First off.. Thanks Superman for writing this up on Young   I would be very happy with either Young or Stroud as our pick     In regards to Richardson   If teams trade up and both Young and Stroud are gone (I think its a small chance)   But.... If that happens, I would consider taking Richardson over Levis   at 4   I really dont want to give up 2 firsts and 2 2nds and a player for a move up to 1            
    • Yes.  I could be negative and see only how every Qb we take could bust...and with the questions each has any one of them could be a bust, but I look at this pretty optimistically.  We need a QB, and I think this draft presents a lot of possibilities and choices that could work out for the best.  Trade up for the elite guy and he works out.  Stand Pat for the second best guy and he works out.  Trade back and pick up a traitsy player who needs a year to develop in a year where we have no chance of going to the SB anyway.   There are about 5 or 6 QBs that could all work for us depending upon if the investment is correct.      As a fan, I can't see me criticizing any of the picks or moves Ballard makes this draft when it comes to QBs.  But, as a fan, I reserve the right to later say...."He should have known better" if it doesn't work out.  He's getting paid to know better.
    • This definitely makes sense. People seem fixated on Chicago taking Anderson or Carter. Poles has said his main objective has and will be to help Fields by surrounding him with talent. That starts up front. Even if they trade down in the top 4, I feel they will trade down again to stock picks. Anderson and Carter are nice players but I don't see Poles taking a risk on one player. He is more of the obtain more picks and increase chances of upgrading talent guy.
    • I don't accept your description that its trolling.  Trolling is intentionally saying something simply to stir the pot...to muck up the works.   If this got to a national level.... to a general football loving base, sports loving base, or general population, you don't know that the responses would be limited to just Colts fans.  You may have thousands of people who would see the Jeff hire as simply a rich white billionaire hiring is buddy over more qualified candidates.....maybe even minorities.....and would sign the petition to voice their concerns over such .    Which would be a concern to them beyond caring how many Ws and Ls Jeff might cause.     If Jeff is hired, there will be questions from general football fans, sports fans, or the population asking "What does this hire say about the NFL?"   I'd wager that the possibility of Irsay "hiring his buddy over other candidates" already has grated on enough people to contribute to their existing opinion about whether or not Jeff should be hired.    And this is the type of emotion the media morphs into and taps into.  Effectively, the media trolls the population trying to get them all triggered up.   Besides.  Petitions by their nature are one sided.  10,000 signatures may sound like a lot, but it may be less than the 11,000 votes that would support Jeff for HC if an actual poll was the medium used for fan expression.  Or less than the 150,000 opinions who are comfortable leaving it up to the owner to hire the HC he wants for the reasons he wants.  These opinions would never be known, because if you are comfortable leaving it up to the owner, you are the type of person who is not going to sign a petition in the first place.  Petitions are a form of activism, and most people aren't activists.  And most activists could care less if their opinion is in the minority, they just want their opinion to prevail.
