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


Recommended Posts

I think I need to celebrate. The Reds actually won tonight. I looked yesterday and they had to third lowest ERA in the NL. Last place. I do think the offense will wake up, but I fear they will be too far back from St Louis and Milwaukeeand probably Chicago. There pitching has been prisitine recently.

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

I just got an anonymous call on my phone which I usually don't answer when I don't see a number I recognize. I answered it and the person said SOX and hung up.  I have no clue who it was  

As most of you know, I'm a Cardinals fan.  But you don't know that at one time I was a Cubs fan.  This was in the early 1980's while I was in college and got cable TV.  Our TV provider had WGN and sin

Cubs have now won 4 in a row. The Pitching has been a lot better in this stretch. Now we are back to .500 at 9-9 and only 2.5 games out of 1st place. Cards are just 10-9 and the Brewers are just 12-9. All have 9 losses. Pirates currently lead the Central at 11-6.

Mets are playing the Cards this weekend. Jacob deGrom is on the IL (inactive list); so he will miss his start today. Some guy from Triple A is pitching. :( The Mets did hang on last night to win. I swore the bullpen would give it up in the 8th. With 1 out and a man on third, we managed to get the last 2 outs. I think the Cards got someone on third again in the 9th but we managed to get out of it. Good win against a good team with our 5th starter.

Sorry about deGrom, hopefully it will not be an injury that will linger.

Anyone else besides me seeing no one else logged in on the site. I know Hozer and CBE are logged in because they posted comments but on the home screen and on this page, it shows only me logged in. I am bewildered. :scratch:

Ok. Thank you. It must be a problem with the website. I thought I was getting that because I was accessing this on mobile, but when I accessed it on my laptop, it was the same.

That is strange because I am on Chrome and on my laptop and everything is normal on my end.

Guess  I was wrong, Darvish with the start, and a shaky one at that, already down 2-0 with 2 home runs in the first.

Are they on a contract that expires with the channels they are on now?

The Cubs are starting their own network and the affiliation with NBCChicago and ABC7 are being terminated 

   

  It will(could) be unavailable on WNDY and WTVW and it is not clear whether it will be carried by DirecTV, Dish, or any major cable companies if they do  for most of Indiana it would be only available RSN packages and Extra Innings

Thanks I didn't know. I do have U-Verse so I will just have to see how it plays out I guess. I can always follow their games on the Internet too. I have been able to watch all the Cubs games during their great run from 2015-2018 at least.

The Dodgers tried something similar and it did not go well since no one carried them

@2006Coltsbestever @HOZER

Enjoy the Cubs games while you can because more than likely they won’t be available next year

Yeah I’ve been following that news for a while. This will be their last season on WGN after such a long history on the channel, it’s too bad.  

 

I’m a diehard Cubs fan, if I have to pay to have the channel, then I guess I’ll pay....probably actually get to watch more games then I do now on Direct TV anyway!!!

Even though I am a Reds fan I don't like how few Cubs games I can see on Direct TV. I think their broadcasts are the best, both technically and the broadcasters.

 

Rasiel Iglesias has figured it out. He started off rough but he has struck out the last 9 hitters he has faced in a span of his last three games. I hope he sits tomorrow.

The way the Cubs are set up causes that

I will stick with NFL Sunday Ticket and XM/Sirius

 

    Extra Innings is $173 a season

 

 

  you might be able to get access to it or from what I read no one will

     If Direct carries it I will probably be able to get it but will not be able to watch games(I think)

$173? Ouch!  The magic number I keep hearing is $6 a month to add the channel, although that could possibly go up once providers throw their fees on there. Sinclair broadcasting, who owns the new “marquee network”, at least that’s the rumor as to what it will be called, also owns a large amount of cable providers throughout the Midwest, pretty much a monopoly, and they will get their way.  Don’t necessarily agree with what’s going on, but it’s the way of the world anymore.

The Extra Innings package for DTV is $173 dollars a season(30 a month)

    I have a feeling MLB blackout rules will apply and therefore for the Cubs fans outside of Chicagoland the EI package will be the only way to watch

 

 

    I will never buy the EI package for myself( I find more joy in NFL ST, RSNs and now WNBA League pass )

Yeah I am late to the party, way to fly the flag Hozer. Big 2-1 win today over the D-Backs. Brewers and Pirates both loss too. So we are just 2.5 games out of 1st place in the NL Central and 10-10 through 20 games. I will take it for now :thmup:

Well, no Cubs action today, but I did get to coach/watch an awesome game! My sons first game of the season, they played a great game and won 8-1! A double play(my son, so proud of him), grand slam, and many other very impressive plays for a bunch of 8-10 year olds, had a blast! I love baseball!!!

 

Oh what the heck.....
