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.

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:

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.

    • Would be a good deal for the Pats, not the most unbelievable trade either.
    • You ask a lot of good questions.    Unfortunately, I don't think that I, or anyone else,  has a lot of good answers.   Here's what I think we know.   Over The Cap has the Colts with just over $26 Mill.   Spotrac shows less,  and after the Carrie signing, I think we're going to be at $22.4 or so.   I also think we'd like to find a way to thread the financial needle and sign both Houston and Ertz (as a FA).   Even if you allowed $12 Mil for that, (Houston $7 mill and Ertz $5m)  that would leave us with roughly 10-$12 mill, give or take.   Currently, with our 6 picks,  Spotrac shows that will take roughly $6.5 to sign them.   But we all know Ballard has never had a draft class with less than 8 picks,  so expect two more, and that will bring the money needed to sign them to roughly $8 Mill.   Suddenly, we'd be down to $2-4 Mill and change.   Now, this is the part, where I don't know if @w87r  will step in for more financial adjustments that will show that we will have a few more $ than my math shows.    He's a wiz that way!      But typically, teams want 5-10% in reserve for in-season transactions.   BUT....   can you afford to have that much in reserve when your cap has shrunk to $185?     Yes?    No?    I don't know?     Who knows?   So....    lots of questions that need answers....    and we just don't know?    Both Houston and Ertz look like situations that might not resolve themselves until May......    So, we're left hanging....  
    • I vaguely remembered something like this but misremembered that I saw it on Hard Knocks so figured it couldn't haven't been the Colts.   Now that you mention this though, I think you're right.
    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
