Hozer Trouble with the Curve , much of it was shot in old Dawsonville Georgia . Motel scenes about 2 miles from my Mom and Sisters homes. The motel is still there to this day, about ten minutes from the backside of the Appalachian Mountains ,Smokie Mountain's about an hour away or so . About 45 min to Tallulah Gorge where Deliverance was filmed.

Georgia is a beautiful state. Had family in Ackworth and Cartersville, loved visiting with them!!! Have been to Atlanta(meh) and Savanna, that city was fun. Vacationed on Tybee island east of Savanna, awesome clean beaches, highly recommend the place!

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.

Savanna, that city was fun.

 

My sisters and I visited Savannah last year. One of my sisters lives in a suburb of Atlanta but she loves Savannah. I thought parts of Savannah was pricier than NYC. Lol. I was really hungry for a banana one day. A store there charged me over $2 for one. haha

 

This year we are thinking of going to Hilton Head, not too far from Savannah.

Fly the flag Hozer, Hamels ruled. Cubs win 5-1. Contreras is a monster. Are we back? Maybe?

GoCubsGo!!!

Good to see you come out of :peek:.  haha  The weather is almost too hot for me. Lol. I like cool weather. I'm off today and will go out and enjoy the weather later. 

 

I have not followed the Yankees but I know that the Red Sox were doing poorly. Early on, teams that should be doing well are not. But it is still so early. The Mets were hot to start last year and faded away after May. The Yankees are too talented to stay down.

 

Turn the channel back to YES. :)

I'm on it now. Same old story. They load the bases with one out. Then Bird strikes out for out #2.  But this time one of the new guys comes through with a 2 run single. 2-1 Yanks after 1.

The Mets' hitting has been much improved. I'm pleased. 

 

Btw, did you hear that former Cubs and Yankees pitcher Scott Sanderson passed away? My condolences.

Agreed Brother we went to Savanna and Tybee last year are going back sometime within the next few weeks. Did you eat at Paula Deans ? Go across the bridge to Hilton Head ?

Jake Arrieta won his 100th game last night putting his career record at 100-68 with an era of 3.60. Jake will always be my favorite pitcher that wore a Cubs uniform. As a Cub he was an amazing 68-31 with an era of 2.56. He was 2-0 in the 2016 WS vs the Indians when it really counted. He also won the Cy Young in 2015. My man Jake!

Man I wished, freakin Yu :funny:. In the history of the Cubs Jenkins and Maddux are the 2 best pitchers but Jake is my favorite, I guess it is because they won the WS with him. Yu = :puke:

Hey image.thumb.png.4fdccd0e699e7de2576dacb4e1b98393.png that guy wasn't bad either

When were you in Savannah, Jay? I was there in September. I don't recall seeing Paula Dean's restaurant but my sister has been there. We went to Vick's (by the Bay), Gryphon or Gryphton, and a few other restaurants. We had fun. We did not get to go to Hilton Head because the day we wanted to go, it was raining a lot. So we stayed in Savannah.

We spent most of our time on Tybee. If you go back, I highly recommend a place on the island called the Sundae cafe, the food and setting was awesome! It’s a little surprising because it’s in a small shopping center, you would never know it’s so nice. It stays busy, gets great ratings, and you usually have to have a reservation to get in. The fried green tomatoes were delicious! 

 

The place we ate at in Savanna was a brewery, but I can’t recall the name, I swear I wasn’t drinking that much, lol! It had kind of a hipstery rock setting. Food was pretty good. I’ll have to check out Paula Deans next time I go.

Yankees will win the East IMO. The Rays will fade a little and the Red Sox won't have anywhere near the year they had last year.

This was exactly how I saw it going before the season started. I know it's a long season but I'm not liking what I'm seeing so far. It sure was nice to get CC back today & have him pitch so well.I hope that's a sign of things to come.

Adam Wainwright with a no no through 5 , but they wont let him go that far. I thought he was washed do to so many injuries , but he has been pretty sharp so far this season. Just one of those who know how to pitch.

Jay Kirk I think the breaks went the Reds way tonight. I think Bader should have let Martinez...I think it was Martinez in right catch that fly ball. But you have to love his aggressive play. Fun to watch.  I  think Rasiel Iglesias was lucky tonight because his command was really lacking. David Hernandez out of the bullpen is just so impressive. Looking forward to tomorrow.

    • Well to begin with I am certainly no draft expert.  Just another draft geek and fan enthusiast who watches film I can find and I don't really put too much stock into draft sites other than using them as references for my own lists.  Just something I enjoy doing.   But talking lists...  PFF's big board has Radunz at 32, and Jenkins at 31.  Which I think is fine btw.  Draft Network has Radunz at 33 and Jenkins at 28, which is also fine to my eye.  Great Blue North which I always reference has Radunz at 50 and Jenkins at 23.  I would note that this year there's way more variance it seems than normal which makes sense given the nature of the last year.   Senior Bowl is also something I put a lot of stock in.  Radunz had a great week.  Really that alone on top of his film I think cements him in that late first round group.   Lastly the OTs tend to go earlier than expected just due to supply/demand and any of these guys who teams think might be able to play LT is going to be snapped up very quickly as that is a cornerstone position.  This is why I don't let myself think a guy like Darrisaw falls to us.  I mean anything is possible but it doesn't seem too probable to me.   So either way I do think Ballard is going to find a LT in this draft.  It just might not be the guy we expect.  If they don't like Jenkins or Radunz I would think they move up.  Protections being there for Wentz is crucial.
    • I can't speak for @MPStackbut I believe he is playing "Devil's Advocate" here.  A WLB and LG are clearly not "premium positions", as QB, LT, WR, DE, CB, and even MLB(though not in this defense) would fit that bill.  This is why the thought of kicking "Q" out to LT is being discussed, he is going to get paid regardless.  I am not agreeing or disagreeing, I just understand his point. 
    • Thanks for the link!  It quickly reminded me of an old Berraism...   Yogi Berra’s famous quotes: ‘Baseball is 90 per cent mental. The other half is physical’.
    • Dayo might be available in 5th round as the 2nd DE    
    • Whatever my numbers are, I think Wentz’s numbers will be even better in 2022.   The team will be better.   Wentz will be even more comfortable in the system, and so I think his stats will be noticeably better, not just a little.    So.....   Comp %.   64-65 Yards          4000+ TD’s.               30 Int                    12   Next year, I’m hoping and expecting better.
