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


Recommended Posts

NFL  your Mets get this one tonight , right now Leake is our weakest link in starters. I was not happy with Matheny's lineup . Why throw a monkey wrench in a lineup consistently scoring runs. To me Molina must be behind the plate , if not you bring up Carson Kelly he's light years ahead of Fryer. I just don't get some of these choices Matheny and even upper management are making. To me they are over thinking .

I started following the game in the 8th. Darling and Keith Hernandez were criticizing Matheny for sitting some of his players after the Mets scored 7 runs. In the top of the 8th, the Cards had no pinch hitters on the bench. Wainwright pinch hit and walked. Lol.

 

I agree with you. By sitting his better players, what does that say to Leake? Wouldn't Leake benefit from having Molina behind the plate? 

 

Anyway, good luck tomorrow. They have an early game.

Glad to know I'm not the only one having a problem with Matheny . Seems Darling and I share some of the same wavelink lol.

Trade Rumor

 Cubs could add Yu Darvish

A lot of miles on that car isn't there?

 

I think that would be a great trade for the Cubs. He is only 30 years old. He has more strikeouts than innings pitched. He has a 3.45 ERA in the AL in a year where it seems the juiced ball is back. 

 

I think that would definitely put the Cubs in the driver's seat in the Central.

Cant have enough strike throwers thats for sure.  I know he had Tommy John surgery a few years ago, not that it will keep him from being good but to me it is usually the start of decline.  No question he has been good though.

 

Theo know more than me so I don't think he would make a deal that would be too risky.... lets do it.

Cubs may need him to actually take down the Dodgers. I think now the Division is real winnable even without him only being 1 game back. If the Cubs can hang on to this lead they will only be .5 back. Cubs lead 3-2 going to Bottom of 6.

That was a disaster of an 8th Inning, congrats to Jay on the Cards win. Cubs still only 1.5 back and were due for a loss. The BullPen as usual screwed it up. I was surprised Edwards was that bad though, normally he is better than that. Brewers will probably win their next 3 because they play Philly so the Cubs need to rebound and win tomorrow.

Over his career if take away Yu's first innings....his era and opponent ba is miniscule. I don't know what it is about the first but he just gets creamed typically. I think he likes to throw a lot of first pitch strikes and teams sit on him early but then he gets into a groove. It honestly hasn't been as bad this year as the 5th and 6th have been more of problem but in the past he has struggled. Actually he is like Jake Arrietta....he can be gotten to early but once he settles in he is hard to hit until those later innings. Seems like Yu does pretty good with 2,3,4 innings and could be good for the Cubs to get a lead early and put pressure on the opposing team. I would be fine with him but I'm not sure we need to give up more top chips to get him....its going to be hard to beat LA this year imo.

Man.... I watched it up until the 8th and had to go help my father-in-law with a project.  I left WITH CONFIDENCE that we had it won and just now got back and read the comments.... what a load of crap.... I don't have anything else to say about it other than #@(8&^+{}["$

Here are the details:

 Cardinals acquire 

  OF Tyler O'Neill

 

 Mariners acquire  

  P Marco Gonzalez

The explanation was Gonzales out of options next year , they didn't see him getting lots of innings so they swapped him so they could still get something in return. O'Neill 22 has hit 14 homers in last 19 games in the Pacific Coast League.

9 runs in one inning? Really? That's unacceptable!!!! Our Bullpen is definitely our Achilles heel. Oh well, the run was fun while it lasted....Go Cubs!

How many times have I said this same one that haunts Cards

Lol about another hour till the show begins again . I have to go to work in middle of it. At least I should get to watch the Game tomorrow night. Enjoy the game my friends might be to check in before I Leave . Was glad to see they brought up Carson Kelly , I'm really no fan of Fryer. Oh by the way hope the heat takes it easy on these players.

    • A well coached game.  The counter plays were better covered in the second half....SF made plays in the second half because of individual talent matchups and not defenders being out of position.  The weather and Aiyuk's nonproduction helped to not expose where we lack talent.  The defense was coached well for the talent it has to play with, as usual.  Frank coached a good game on offense.   The DE play was better.  Lewis continued to make a few plays and Paye showed up more than either Turay or Ben have in a couple of years.   Wentz is an excitable guy.  It seemed that the way SF sliced through the D early, Wentz felt the need to play hero ball in the first quarter.  Some of his plays could have been picks and could of lost us the game in the first half.  Nice to see that he settled into understanding the limitations and played well after that.  Overall, I think that he continued to show that he is worth a top 15 first round pick.   JTs "benching" in the late 4Q during "possession time" is what should happen when you put the ball on the ground.  Needed to protected the ball better BEFORE losing it and learning a lesson.   What does Hines do?  He's not really a backup RB (we need a real one), and it seemed the soggy grass totally eliminated his explosiveness. Mack also looked slow on that surface.   Sorry, Nelson has not done what Frank expects him to do when we continually run to the left side.  I assume our LT play has something to do with it, but Nelson is not the SuperGuard that changes the oline.  Franks major fault is that he runs left too much, at least the eye test says those plays get stuffed the most.....all season.   Fisher appears to not have the anchoring or explosion ability.  I assume that the leg may not gain its core strength back until next season.  Playing surface may have effected him, or how he thought about stressing the leg.   Pitt is a nice down field threat, but we still need a real one like PC or TY.   Mo is settling in to be Doyle's replacement.            
    • Make the wild card round, and it is 19th at best for the Eagles. Getting a franchise QB with pick No.19, I will take it any day of the week.
    • Agree, Fluse plays that D mainly because of the players.  It works as good as the opposing QB is for the most part.  The worse the QB, the better that frustrating D works.   Tannehill is a better than average QB, and with excellent weapons.  That team is for real.  Fluse better come up with some new wrinkles for this one.  
    • My wife and I are headed to Indy for the game against the Titans. I know Ruth Cris and St Elmo’s are pricey but are there places in the Indianapolis area to get a good meal? We have a car.    My apologies for posting this in the Colts section but I didn’t know where else to post it. Thanks and go Colts!!!
    • We will have plenty of time to discuss the Cardinals when they come into town close to Christmas. Their squad could change with injuries as well, you never know.    Right now, the Titans are all that matter to me. 4-2-5, 3-3-5, we will have plenty of time to discuss it then. We would have also had to cross the critical wild card competition with the Raiders and Patriots prior to the Cardinals, you are overlooking that as well. Like I said, 1 week at a time since SO MANY things can change in almost 2 months.
