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


Recommended Posts

Heading into June 28th the NL Central standings look like this:

 

Cubs 44-37

Brewers 43-38 (1 back)

Cards 40-39 (3 back)

Pirates 38-41 (5 back)

Reds 36-42 (6.5 back)

 

81 games down and 81 to go. We now have a great closer too. Tough 3 game series coming up at the Reds to finish June. The Reds are not too bad this year. 

 

As far as grades go for the team: Midterm through 81,

*Starting Pitching = B

*Bullpen = C but we have Kimbrel now

*Manager (Maddon) = A-

*Overall Lineup/Hitting = B

*3rd best record in the NL = B+

*Overall Grade would be a B for me. We have been inconsistent but still lead the NL Central at 44-37, 44-37 isn't very good or great but good.

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

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

I like all the grades except for Maddons, might have to slide him down to a B, he cuts Darvish and Chatwood too much slack. jmo.

Yeah I thought about that long and hard. I almost gave Maddon a straight B because of what you said. I went with A- only because Maddon has managed great despite the bullpen we have had. Our bullpen in reality could be a C-/D+ but because we added Kimbrel and he saved a game yesterday, I went C there. Everytime Darvish or Chatwood pitches I do cringe. I went B with starting pitching simply because of Hamels and Lester.

I agree he has done a great job. Maybe it’s positive re-enforcement or reverse psychology or something for Darvish and Chatwood? No one obviously wants to hear they suck.

Yeah I hate to say it but they suck lmao . Maybe Darvish and Chatwood will come out of their funk but as of now I do not see it.

Hamels has a strained Oblique. He may be out 3 or 4 weeks is what I am hearing. Brewers and Cards both lost last as well. Does anyone want to win the division? 

Might get interesting before the trade deadline end of July.

I might turn on the SiriusXM Radio Broadcast

I am already sick of Thom Brenneman and Jeff “Cowboy” Brantley and the game hasn’t even started yet

What is is with the opposing team announcers lately? The Braves announcer said he would have decked Contreras if he had mouthed off to him during last weeks dust up(they have a history, and I wish he would have tried,lol) and then last night after Strop hit Puig, the announcer said that Strops lucky Puig didn’t “snap” his neck! lol, so much aggression! Maybe they should be getting random drug tests too? lol!

Puig is a loose cannon. In all honesty I am not sure he wants to mess with Strop. Strop isn't scared of anything.

Ok that was absolute garbage the ball was going to be foul, it was a REDS FAN that interferes, and it goes against the Cubs??? What a bunch of crap. So...what’s to keep opposing team fans from interfering EVERYTIME a ball is hit there? That is ridiculous, and the rule is flawed and needs to be changed. Don’t care if the fan is thrown out, it’s still wrong. Guess the net extensions can’t come soon enough. Crap.

We lost and fall to 45-39,

 

Cubs went 14-15 in June = average but their schedule was the toughest in the NL in June. Still in 1st place at the end of June or at worst tied for 1st with the Brewers. Brewers are playing right now. I will take it. Get well Hamels. It could be worse, we could be the Cards who have massively underachieved so far at 40-41.

Unreal.

July will be a big month because I can see Hamels missing 3 weeks at least. We are still in 1st place at the end of June but luckily the Brewers and Cards keep stinking it up haha . 50% of the season is over and we are in 1st in the NL Central, lets see how July goes. Brewers are playing right now, if they win they tie us for 1st. If they lose, they will be 1 game back,
