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.

Yes The Cards blew some opportunities , the Reds earned the win. It was interesting at the end. I would not want to play in that ballpark on a regular basis :spit:

Cards up 9-5 over the Reds.  

Staying close to the division lead.  

I like the Cards pitching Mikolas was good today , 3 of the runs unearned . They have scored runs . The scary thing for other teams is Carp and Goldy are not hot yet. This will be some offense firing on all cylinders.

On paper the Cards have the best team in the division, Cubs are still good and will get it together and the Brewers are legit good now too but the Cards are loaded. As a Cubs fan that is just how I see it.

I think its a legit outlook , time will tell but the Cards could be the best in the NL before its said and done. Every team in our division can be dangerous.

Not just because I am talking to you but the Cards may be the best team in the league with the way the Red Sox and Yankees look. It is early though but I love your lineup and your pitching has shown it can be solid in spurts. The way you took care of LA was real impressive.

I think this time it will be different. That is strange but that means the Crew will have to go St Louis for a while after that :thmup:. Man those 2 teams have caught my Cubs quickly. People were talking dynasty in Chicago after 2016, now we are just hoping for a Wildcard. Baseball is like that though from year to year, that is why I have boasted about the Cubs making the playoffs 4 years in a row. It is hard in that sport to be good/great every year.

Yes it is , the Cubs will pick it up. The Pirates have been interesting , but will need to prove they can hang.

Yeah i see it is on ESPN.

 

I was not watching it, as I am still putting finishing touches on my presentation. Most of my PowerPoint went in last week. I was asked to add something else. Lots of legal stuff -- I'm not a lawyer. Lol.

 

Anyway, goodnight all. :grouphug:

I like the thought of that, but I don't see it.   Their starting rotation still worries me.    Wainwright cannot last the majority of the season.    Fowler has been hitting below .200 for a year and a half.   Defensively, they'll probably be near the bottom of the league again.   

However, the lineup can get hot and put up allot of runs.   

I think the Brew Crew is best in the division.   The Cubs have the talent and when they start playing well, watch out.

Maybe you would like to be a Brewers backer ? Lol just kidding . Wainwright I would not count out. Carlos should be back in 2 weeks , just depends where they want him Starting or Bull pen. I think their D is much better than you think , I will stand by that. Why are you so always such a doubter with your team and so on the bandwagon with everyone elses ? Lol they sweep the Dodgers that many think are the best team in the League and do it convincingly . Do you have ulcers ?You worry to much lol . Lighten up and enjoy the season both Baseball and Football. Watch the games and get involved in here everybody likes you , and I'm dealing with much at home so I cant be on as much. Get in here and support our Redbirds ! Guess what I am not much on Fowler if he doesn't pick it up he wont be here much longer.

I don't mean to be a "Debbie downer".   I think of myself as more of a fan being realistic.   I don't tend to jump on the ceiling of what could be.   

 

Wainwright:   I think he will be a good inning eater, but in a long season, I'm not sure he'll be an asset till the end.   Almost best if he takes a month off during the middle of the season, which could happen if starting caliber pitching  comes up which is probable. 

 

I'm not sold on the "D" being top half of the league.   Wong has improved and Bader is pretty good.   Carpenter is now a bit of a liability at third.   I'm also afraid of his offensive production going down now that he is playing a more demanding defensive position of 3rd base.   His offense went up considerably after he switched to 1st base.   

 

 I was wrong with my post of Fowler not hitting .200.   He is now at .220.   Not great, but I was wrong.   I still think he is a bit of an X factor.   His defense is pretty good, if he can provide offensive pop, the Cardinals could thrive.   

 

I think the Cardinals are one of the better teams in the Nat league.   My fear is that  the central is so loaded, that they may finish with a record not indicative of how good they are.    

 

All that being said, I listen to almost all their games and watch when I can.

Brewers beat the Cards 10-7. As of now the Brewers are 11-6, Cards 9-7, and Cubs are 6-9. Cubs are only 4 out of 1st place, not bad considering the bad start.

Remember long season , looks like Cards will win this one up 6 - 3 ninth 2 outs . Ozuna and Goldy heating up . Everything will be fine .  Cards win looking forward to Brewers in St Louis n ext week . See if they can return the favor. I believe they will do just that.

Cubs win 6-0, sweep the Marlins to improve to 8-9. Now just 3 games out of 1st place behind the Brewers. Cards beat the Brewers today as well. Fly the flag Hozer.

    • I think we are ready to contend now.   I just don't think it will be through the passing game. The offense will run through 28, literally. Everything else should be off play action, misdirection, screens, and short crossing routes.    I think Pierce fills the deep WR need, and I think Hines see an increase in snaps significantly.    (I'll go through the needs you listed above)    --------------------------------------------------------------   WR - Pittman and Pierce (I am totally okay with this combination, I am really high on pierce and I think that his speed will force teams into more 2 high looks, which will clear the box some, I think people are sleeping on his speed)   TE - I am happy with our room. We have MAC who will slide into that Doyle role (yes i know he doesn't block at the same level, but it ain't far off). I think Granson takes more snaps at F this year. I think Woods is the perfect TE to sit right behind MAC and I see him taking most snaps at TE2. (Also happy with Ogletree as that rotational piece)   CB - I've been very high on Rogers ever since I've seen him on Deestroying's channel before he even played. His speed and change of direction is absolutely next level especially at CB. Most people came onto him after the BUF game, but I won't harp too much on all the people who will have to eat crow when it comes to him. If you check his numbers he is very good in coverage. I was sad to see RYS go, but in my mind we win that trade. CB for DE still is an improvement in our coverage because of pass rush help. I also think we see Cross play quite a bit of CB, or third safety. I am very high on Cross as well, I think he fits zone schemes perfectly, and he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Facyson is also a good depth piece and fringe starter (reminds me of our TJ Carrie signing). I think he can see some playing time on the outside in cover 3, 4 looks.    LT - Pryor played well at LT, and recently he was quoted saying something like "the more positions you play, the less you get paid". To me this signals he is really hunkering down and our competition at LT between him and Raimann will be intense. This is excactly what I wanted and asked for in our draft want threads. I believe that compeittion there will be a very close one, and that's the best thing to have there. (Outside of a bonefied starter)   I agree we probably need another DE, I was severely disappointed with the Rochell signings last year. Is it a huge glaring hole? Negative. We still have Lewis, Paye, Ben, Dayo, and Yannick. I think another unknown steps up and at least gets some rotational snaps at some point.    Overall I think we are ready to contend. It won't look like the Bengals or Rams, but it will definitely be a potent offense. People forget we were just top 10 with the leading rusher in the league... We definitely need more production out of the pass game this year, and I think we get it.         
    • Ok I am following now. PC does have to show something this year outside of just staying healthy I do agree. Hines being a full-time WR though, I highly doubt ever happens. He will be a great threat out of the backfield though.    For what it’s worth, PC seems like a very humble guy that has had bad luck pile up. I see this being a great year for the guy. 
    • I guess my point is pretty simple... they've addressed most of your concerns, as well as mine, because they are mostly the same. I think I'm a little higher on Pittman than you are. Superstars to me are names that are reconizable and players that produce. I think Pittman has shown that he can be a number one WR, and getting to 1k yards is a good achivement for any 2nd year wideout. I won't lecture you on WR's who hit 1k in their second year and what they've gone on to do in the future.   Is he a jefferson, chase, or diggs? definitely not. Can he have a career simillar to big Mike of TB? I think so, I see ,many similarities. For me, superstar is not the top WRs. There are many stars in the league, and then there are the top 3 WRs, and only a few teams have those X factor type players.   I guess I am confused because who would you want them to sign that is better than pittman? Who available is equal? Julio Jones? A guy that can't get ahead of his hamstrings, Beckham, Landry?... I mean most of the guys available are aging veterans who lack upside. Sure, I would have had to like a guy like Landry, especially at the price he was had at. Did he want to come to indy? Hard to tell.   I think you've got a good take overall, I guess my point is that if all we are lacking is a regular vet at WR, then we really aren't missing much. I think we have time to add if we want to, I just don't see it helping immensely or really making much of a difference at all with the guys that are available. 
    • Jason Peters started out as a TE with the Bills. Heading to the hall of Fame.
    • IMO to a huge degree this depends on where you think the team is and what a realistic goal for next season should be? Do we think we are in "win-now" mode? Do we think we are treading water/building up still?    If we think we are still building and waiting on the youth to develop, I'm good with this off-season and it achieves both giving the young players the opportunity to show what they can do, while still securing some base level of performance at key positions (QB) that impact those young players' development.    But if you think we should be contenders right away, this coming season, and if you think we should be competing against KC or Buffalo or hell... even the Bengals/Ravens/Chargers/Raiders/Broncos(?), I think there is a way to go and there are multiple positions that need upgrades and/or depth additions.    At WR in essence we have ONE surefire starting level player. ONE! The rest are all questionmarks to one degree or another. This is in a league that favors teams with multiple high level receiving threats.    At TE we have MAC who is a starter level and questionmarks everywhere else. None of them is proven receiving weapon   At LT - questionamarks?   At CB - past Gilmore and Rodgers, we have all questionmarks on the outside(some might eveninclude Rodgers in the ?-category, but I like him better than that). Depth highly questionable.   I think we need depth additions at DE too... especially when you know how much we rotate players in this scheme.    But again - all this is good if you think we are still in a phase of developing youth and building the roster and we don't have any illusions about this team being ready to contend. I just don't want any leaks coming from Irsay or Ballard telling me they think this team is close(like we had last year), because IMO it's not.
