Have you been to a Cardinals game before?  Busch Stadium is really nice and the view of the Arch beyond center field is a great backdrop.  Hope you can make a game there...I am hoping to do the same later this summer.

 

 

Yep, I think i have been to 3 or 4 Cubs/Cards game at Busch. It was a close drive for me when I was living at home like 3 hours. Now I live in St. Louis County, so it is a much closer (15 min) game plus tickets havent been expensive even with limited seating. I kinda have gotten so use to see the arch since I always drove through STL to school, so kinda became a regular occurrence for me.  I am just looking forward to going to games again. And now instead of Minneapolis in June, it appears it will be AZ, so that should be fun

Here is a question for not just Cubs fans but everyone that posts on this thread,

 

If the Cubs with the current core players that they have had = Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, Hendricks, and I will include Jake because he was on the team in 2017 and back again now (all members of the 2016 WS championship team), fail to win another WS, have they:

 

A. Underachieved by not at least winning 2 WS

 

B. Overachieved because along with winning the WS in 2016, they have won 3 NL Central Division titles as well = 2016, 2017, and 2020

 

C. Did what they were suppose too by ending the 108 yr jinx of not winning a WS by winning it all in 2016 + staying good with the 2 other NL Central Division titles in 2017 and 2020

 

I will go with C, no one ever thought they would win one, so the fact we did

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

I pick C as well......as underwhelming and disappointing as the last few seasons have ended, they have achieved quite a bit and broke the curse. They’ll start clicking again just in a rut right now.

Cubs win! Much needed win over the Brewers. Willson Contreras hit a 2 run HR in the top of the 8th to put the Cubs ahead for good 3-2. Strop got the win, Kimbrel the save. Despite the mediocre play, the Cubs are now 5-6 and pretty much cluttered up with the other teams in the division.

 

Reds are at 7-3

Brewers are at 6-5

Cards are at 6-5, they are up 14-1 tonight so they will go to 6-5.

Cubs are at 5-6

Pirates are at 4-7

 

Kimbrel has been one of the few bright spots this season for Cubs pitching, along with Jake who pitches tomorrow. Hopefully Jake can get us back to .500.

It is bunched up as of now in the NL Central:

 

Standings as of April 14th

Reds 7-4 

Brewers 6-5 (1 back)

Cards 6-5 (1 back)

Cubs 5-6 (2 back)

Pirates 4-7 (3 back)

 

As bad as the Cubs have played, they are only 2 games out of 1st place. Reds just lost tonight. What seems weird is, I think the Reds have played great but are only 7-4.

Contreras gets his payback!!! And I find it odd that Woodruff got so upset when he was thrown at(not hit) as he is the one who has plunked Contreras the most the past several times they’ve played the Pirates. Anyway...

I agree, Busch stadium is a great place.  

Fort Wayne has a San Diego affiliate team.  It's a very nice stadium.   I went to several games over the years.   It was nice to see Fernando Tatis Jr. develop in his years on the Fort Wayne tin Caps.   I always pulled for him because I remember his dad playing for the Cardinals.   Tatis Sr's claim to fame is being the only player ever to hit 2 grand slams in 1 inning.  He still holds the record for most RBI's in an inning too.   

 

 

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Stadium Journey has once again ranked Parkview Field as the No. 1 Class A ballpark in Minor League Baseball. The home of the Fort Wayne TinCaps has topped the publication's list of Class A venues for 10 consecutive years since their rankings began.

 

I'd like to go to a game there sometime...also to a game in South Bend.  Been to a game at Bosse Field in Evansville, which was featured in the movie, A League Of Their Own.  It's the second oldest stadium still in use behind Wrigley Field.

Thanks for the info.  

I want to go to a Toledo Mudhens game.  Not for the stadium as it was built 19 years ago so it is not new and shiney yet it isn't old enough to give you that nostalgia feel.  I think it mostly stems from it being mentions by Klinger on Mash so many times. 

 

Looked up Bosse Field on Wiki.   Looks like it is the 3rd oldest.   Fenway - 1912, Wrigley - 1914, Bosse - 1915.

It was also a football stadium when Evansville had an NFL team called the Evansville Crimson Giants.  

 

I would have loved to be at the music festival there in 1972 (well I would have been only 2 years old, but you know what I mean).

Went to a Mud Hens game several years back in the new ballpark, which I think was only 2 or 3 years old at the time.  Nice ballpark with a nice view of downtown.

Holy cow!   That is a long list.   I bet you had forgotten some too.   I can't remember all mine and the list is probably only 10 or so.  That would include college football stadiums.

I know you're not, I always stand corrected when I'm not accurate.  As I typed that, I wondered about Fenway, but I recall hearing or seeing that Bosse was the second oldest someplace.  Or, I'm getting old and forgetful :)

I didn't include football games or basketball games, but those lists are much shorter.

@Barry Sears

 

I will give you mine for Baseball too.

 

Indiana

 

Victory Field- Indianapolis. International League. Was my first professional baseball game like 15 years ago or so. 

 

Four Winds Field- South Bend, IN. Midwest League. Went with a friend to see Cubs prospects. Really liked the smallness close to field feeling there.

 

Illinois

 

Dozer Park- Peoria, IL. MIdwest League- Numerous since I lived there for 13 years went from Cubs to Cards affiliate. Also worked there for a summer

 

Wrigley Field- Chicago, IL. Numerous times of course.

 

Guaranteed Rate Field - Chicago, IL. Saw White Sox vs Tigers and only 7 inning game as it poured rain after the 7th and game ended.

 

Iowa

Principal Park Des Moines, IA. PCL - Was back in 2014 when Javy and KB were both there. Actually got a picture with KB and autograph after the game.

 

Massachutes

Fenway Park- Boston, MA. Went in 2018 saw JD Martinez hit a HR over the Green Monster was really nice with electricity. Also they won WS later that year.

 

Missouri

 

Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO. Been multiple times, and will probably be there in a couple weeks for a game since living here.

 

Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, MO. Actually went on a tour of the stadium before the game and got to see and hold a 2015 WS Ring. 

 

Hammons Field, Springfield, MO. Texas League. Multiple and Cards Double A team. Nice Stadium. Went a lot as it was up the street from school the last 3 years. 

 

New York

 

Citi Field, Queens, NY. 1 game, sadly was really raining but was really nice going there and loved the Apple in CF

 

Yankees Stadium, Bronx, NY. Got to sit right behind bullpens. Energetic and enjoyed seeing some historical aspects but still new Stadium. 

 

Ohio

 

Great American Ballpark Cincinnati, OH- 2 games. Really like the park. Seemed like it is situated for family to come to and see. Like their club seats and special area for that.

 

Pennsylvania 

 Citizens Bank Park- Philadelphia, PA- Liked the open concept of the stadium there. easy to walk around. Loved the bullpen being stacked on each other.

 

Wisconsin

 

Miller Park. Really Outdated already. A/C was terrible since roof was closed. Even if didnt hate Brewers, I still would put park at bottom. Just did not seem like anybody cared when making it. It is same level to me as A's or TB's

 

 

Ontario

Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON, CAD- Really interesting park. Enjoyed that a hotel is located in it. Found it funny you can bounce baseball on the field due to turf. Better bang for your buck than US parks. Food was cheap. Ended up getting 2 tickets 20 rows behind home plate for 50$ total. Would recommend, but never got to see it with roof open

 

So I have 11 MLB stadiums, 5 MiLB teams

Still a pretty good list.   I grew up around th St. Louis area.    Imperial, MO and then Waterloo ,IL.   I like the area.   Real good music scene.   Of course K-She 95 was the radio station of choice.

 

Where abouts are you?

Ya I would have had all of CA and Texas if not for Pandemic last year. Plan AZ in June and hopefully finally Texas too. 

 

 

Just off of 170 in University City. I work out in Clayton, will end up moving though once my lease is up.

Didn’t even watch today, or listen. Glad I didn’t. :censored:

I didn't either, it was an early game and I work nights so I was in bed. When I woke up I seen 7-0 Brewers. Jake took his 1st loss. Our bats are dead right now, Cubs better get it together soon, digging a hole isn't good. Reds did lose today which put them at 7-5 but I am more concerned with our play right now. Brewers are also 7-5 now, Cards are just 6-6 (they lost today as well) so all the teams are bunched up.

Ross suspended for a game, will be out Friday. Terpara suspended 3 games is appealing. This is because of throwing behind Woodruff. Brewers wont ever get anything even though, they showed more control Wednesday somehow after hitting Willson in basically every other game. No fines either.

"Brewers wont ever get anything", of course not and they will never win a WS either lmao . So their fans tears will be in their beers once again for the 52 years that franchise has been around. You don't have the ring it doesn't mean a thing :thmup:

The Cubs have just looked pathetic this season. Give up a double to a Pitcher. Can't score second and third 1 out. The bullpen is only thing that has looked positive. They will be selling, there is just nothing going for them this season, they just look completely lost.

The Cubs have just looked pathetic this season. Give up a double to a Pitcher. Can't score second and third 1 out. The bullpen is only thing that has looked positive. They will be selling, there is just nothing going for them this season, they just look completely lost.

Looking bad early. Something isn't right that is for sure. I am not going to panic yet but if by the end of May we aren't at least .500, it may be time to make a few changes and even panic a little. April and May both are feeling out processes but you would like to be no worse than .500 heading into June. June is where the bulk of the season starts.

Yeah I have noticed a down word trend since after we won the WS in 2016, 2017 was still a very good season. Made it too the NLCS but since then we haven't won a playoff game.

Cardinals look bad again...time for Carlos Martinez to go back to the bullpen.  He's okay for an inning or two, but just doesn't work as a starter anymore.  Kim is off the IL and starting today...hopefully does well.

 

Our starting pitching ERA is the worst in the NL, ugh!

So far this year, seven Mets games have been postponed due to either rain or something COVID-related. The Mets play the Rockies. Jacob deGrom has a .68 ERA, yet he is 0-1. The Mets don't hit for him. Let's see if they will today.

 

Enjoy the baseball this weekend, everyone.

    • Yup. Agree 1000%. Listening to Reich coachspeak about RBs being interchangeable is a bit silly and just defies basic logic and laws of science lol.   I have zero problem with Hines running between the Ts on 1st and 2nd though.
    • Not an opinion, sir. That would be a fact.
    • If he does not make it as a QB I hope they give him a try at HB/TE. He is 6'1" and 220 lbs and ran a 4.84 40. He runs well out of the pocket, I bet he could be very much like his old HS teammate in Kylen Granson as a move TE.   Thoughts?
    • We won't need CB's anymore. With Paye, Buckner, Turay and Lewis, QB's wont have time to pass the ball
    • Nah. His problem was injury to his OL last year. His OL went from ranking 1st in 2019, to 19th in 2020 overall, but almost last in pass pro.    Here's snippet.   "The Eagles’ offensive line went through the wringer this past season, as they were trotting out a new starting five up front seemingly every week due to injury. Those injuries all came after they lost projected starting left tackle Andre Dillard and right guard Brandon Brooks to injury before the season began. Eleven different offensive linemen played at least 50 snaps for Philadelphia this season. It’s going to be nearly impossible for any offensive line to lose all that talent and still produce at a high level."   Nobody knows what Wentz's confidence level is. It's all talking head speculation. He's said he was frustrated with different things, but he's out of that situation right now. And nobody knows his frame of mind.   And it wasn't just the OL. Philly had the 2nd highest total man games lost last year, and also second highest AV lost. Sanders was out a quarter of the season. Their WR room was a mash unit all year too. Take a look at their snap counts game by game. The entire O was hit by a freight train. We didn't have a true FB last year with an immobile Rivers. Just not sure we'll have one this year with a QB that's a lot more mobile.
