Cubs have the day off tomorrow, here are the NL Central standings after May 1st:

 

Cards 20-10 

Cubs 16-12 (3 back)

Brewers 17-15 (4 back)

Pirates 14-14 (5 back)

Reds 13-17 (7 back)

 

-This is the best division in Baseball so far record wise. As of now the Cards would be the #1 seed in the NL and the Cubs would be the #5 seed in the Wildcard game.

Yes the opposite of what I had thought.

One hell of a pitchers duel tonight. DeGrom and Disclafani both pitched gems. The light hitting Jose Iglesias is the Reds offensive MVP so far. Great with the glove but I expect his number to fall back to where they are on the back of his baseball card. Ride 'em while they are hot.

Currently the Reds are carrying 14 pitchers. The bullpen is overextended and noone has options. Called Matt Bowman up. I hope they let Zach Duke go. He has been awful. and Garrett is a lefty and has been good. I wonder if Kemp will be let go for a roster spot for Senzel. Probably not. That is lots of money to eat.

Here we go, Cards at Cubs at 220pm today. Start of an early season big series. The Cards come in 20-11 and lead the NL Central, the Cubs come in 16-12 in 2nd, 2.5 back.

 

A look at these 2 great franchises over the years:

-The Cards have 11 World Series, 2nd most in MLB history dating back to 1903. Most recently have won the World Series in 2006 and 2011. 

 

-The Cubs most recently ended a 108 year drought of not winning a World Series as they won it all in 2016 by going 103-58. They also have a 4 year streak of making the playoffs from 2015-2018.

 

-Today's matchup features Jack Flaherty vs Kyle Hendricks.

Cubs win, Cubs win again. The magic continues. Now up 2-0 in this series vs the Cards. Cubs are now a half game out of 1st place in the NL Central. Cards fall to 20-13, Cubs are now 18-12. Looking for the sweep and 1st place tomorrow. Fly the flag Hozer.

Yeah might as well get greedy now. I had us winning 2 of 3 because sweeping the Cards is very difficult but we have a chance. We are playing with house money now and even if we lose tomorrow the worse we come out of it is just 1.5 back with tons of season left.

Mets have a tenuous 1-0 lead over the Brew in the 3rd. Hope we can score some more runs and win this game to even up the series.

 

Go Mets!

 

Mets and Brewers are tied in the 11th. The Brewers blew a save in the 9th on a HR by our rookie Peter Alonso. That is his 10th HR in his early career.

Brewers get lucky like that. You score a run in the 18th and it should be over but not with them. lmao 

 

In the 18th, we bring in this pitcher fresh from the minors. He walks 3 guys in the inning. :facepalm:  I knew it then that we would lose.  I hate it when my pitchers give up walks. OTOH, I love when my hitters take pitches, make the opposing pitchers work and get walks (BBs).

 

Just had a thought. We used to have a lead-off hitter named Lance Johnson. You recall him?? He was not one to take pitches to get a BB. He once said that he was a lead-off hitter, not a lead-off walker. haha 

 

I don't care how they get on base. Just get on base and produce runs. 3 runs in 18 innings is not going to win baseball games.

    • The Colts spent big on resigning players this past offseason.  However, I see a lot of roster turnover heading into next offseason with limited cap space.   Round 1 - Edge Princely Umanmielen (Florida) - In four years has 24.5 TFLS including 14.5 sacks.  In 2023 he ranked 4th among Power Five edge defenders in pass-rush win rate (22.2%) and his 42 run-defense stops since 2022 are tied for second. 98% a clone to Laiatu Latu.  Project resign Dayo but Ebukam/Lewis are on the bubble while Genard Avery is a free agent.   Round 2 - WLB Harold Perkins Jr. (LSU) - As a true freshman led all LBs in Power Five linebackers with a 91.0 pass-rush grade and second among all LBs in the country with 18 QB knockdowns (sacks/hits) and tied for second in the country with 4 *.  Since 2014 era, that ranks third best behind Rueben Bain Jr (freshman) in 2023 and Myles Garrett in 2014. EJ Speeds replacement.    Round 3 - S Keon Sabb (Alabama) –From backup to a starter while at Michigan, he made the most of his 360 snaps.  As a sophomore Sabb was only one of six Power Five safeties to earn an 80+ grades in both coverage and run defender.  Sabb replaces Blackmon.   Round 4 - TE Caden Prieskorn (Mississippi) – Started 2023 with a knee injury missing the first three games.  A Memphis transfer, Prieskorn 449 receiving yards were 9th most among all CFB TEs.  His 1051 receiving yards and 527 YAC since 2022 both rank fourth.  Both Mo Allie-Cox and Kylen Granson (project resign) are upcoming FAs.   Round 5 - LB/SAF CJ Taylor (Vanderbilt) – 6’1” 201 pounds. Taylor spent 55% of his snaps near the defensive LOS and in the box in 2023.  In 2022 he was 3rd among SEC safeties with an 84.9 PFF coverage grade, while his 10 pressures ranked 1st.  In 2023 he was third among all LBs in the conference with a 61.8 passer rating allowed.  Reminds me of Jaylon Carlies whom the Colts just drafted in R5P151.  Carlies is currently listed as 3rd string MLB.  Segun Olubi is the backup behind MLB Franklin and has proven enough to resign after this season.  Projected cuts SLB Cameron McGrone (6’1” 236 pounds) (2024 FA) and SLB Liam Anderson (6’3” 236 pounds) (2024 FA).  Add another 30 pounds to Taylor move to SLB.   Round 6 - IDL Joey Slackman (Florida) final 2023 defense grade while at Pennsylvania, 90.1 (3rd), 92.8 run defense grade (1st), pass rush 71.9 (91st), and a 60.5 coverage grade.  Averaging 48.5 TOT a season along with 4 sacks.  Built like Grover Stewart at 6’4” 300 pounds and has the chance to take over Stewart’s job after a year of mentorship.  Places Davis on the bubble and replaces Taven Bryan.  See how well Slackman does moving to Florida versus much stronger competition.  Could see his draft stock improve.   Round 7 - RB-KR Ismail Mahdi (Texas State) –After his first 6 games in 2023 he had 9 KO RET for 280 yards averaging 31.1 yards which ranked 5th as a KR during that timeframe.  In 2023 rushed for 1331 yards on 223 carriers averaging 6.0 with 10 TDs.  Also proven back that can catch averaging 260 yards a season on 25 catches.  Trey Serman (2024 FA) and Tyler Goodson (2024 FA).   UDFAs LS Byron Floyd (PITT) junior – Floyds 81.7 grade this season leads all FBS LS.  Of his 41 LS on both punts/kicks only one has been charted as off-target.  Does have ties to Colts new DL coach.   WR De’Corian Clark (UTSA) – been compared to Alec Pierce.  Got elite athletic skills.  Made Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List at #94.  In HS he jumped 24’8”, hit 22.2 MPH on the GPS and clocked a 4.31 shuttle time.  Also ran a 4.49s-forty time, had a 10’1” broad jump, and a 35” vertical jump while power-clean 345 pounds.  
    • Interesting….   I think Pittsburg getting rid of their 2023 QB room, Pickett and the backup and bringing in Wilson AND Fields for next to nothing is (IMO) the best off-season transformation by any NFL team including the Colts.      Wilson AND Fields for almost nothing?!?   Yes,  please!    FWIW:  Fields is being used in camp as a returner.  Punt for sure and I think kickoffs as well.     
    • Sometimes you win some of these close games and sometimes you lose. We won a game similar to this in Game 3 vs NY when Nembhard hit that 35 foot game winner. That saved our season because NY could have went up 3-0 had that not gone in. Take the good with the bad and move on.
    • #10 is gonna make a huge difference on offense!!!
    • I'm gonna go out there and say 12. I have very high expectations for this team. If we can be competitive with Minshew then I expect a major step forward with hopefully a healthy AR.
