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


Recommended Posts

Cards within 1 game of the Brew Crew.   I'm still not to confident with this line up.   Only 5 players are hitting over .250 and Molina is out.  I expect Goldschmidt and Arenado to get it going soon.   The pitching finally got their team ERA under 4.   They have been better in the past week or so.

I keep waiting for the league to go to a machine that determines balls and strikes. That is the only way Umps can determine a game as of now since we have replay. They usually get replay right 99% of the time. You would still need a Ump behind the plate to call safe or out at home but a machine could be placed several feet behind the Ump to overrule what a Ump calls. A machine would be 100% accurate.

They are testing strike zone at lower levels, basically someone buzzes down strike or ball. And the replay system isn't working as its been terrible this year with so many missed calls

Cardinals tied for first and have won 8 of their last 10.  Bats are heating up and pitching has improved...even Carlos Martinez is pitching well of late.  Bader is back and hitting well since his return.

Cubs sweep double header today over the struggling Dodgers. Cubs now improve to 14-16 on the season and move into 3rd place in the NL Central %points ahead of the Reds. Cubs are currently just 3.5 games back of 1st St. Louis who are 17-12 on the season. Fly a double flag @HOZER, this was a great day to be a Cubs fan. Brewers also lost today.

The real question is can they become consistent at all? I mean Dodgers are now 4-12 in last 16 after starting really hot. They have had a hard time vs NL Central teams the last 3 series. I am hoping we can get consistent and Hendricks has found his touch with the new ball. Davies really needs to. And Arrieta is missing a start or 2 on IL same with Hoerner after collision and Winkler with right bicep tendinitis. Vargas called up, Thompson and Ryan were called up yesterday for it

Joey Votto is out with a fractured thumb after getting hit in the hand today.  

 

John Means has a No-Hitter through 7 vs Seattle (Baltimore Pitcher)

 

Also @NFLfan I watch different games with the teams broadcast, and I gotta say NYM is probably one of my favorites as they dont sound dumb or say stupid things. Colorado Twitter is great, their announcers are crap.

What a nerve wracking game, Cubs pull it out in 11 Innings 6-5 and sweep the Dodgers. These were the kind of games we used to win, huge win. Cubs are now only 3 games out of 1st place behind the Cards in the NL Central, NL Central looks like this after tonight's play:

 

1. Cards 18-13

2. Brewers 17-14 (1 back) - they have lost 4 in a row now

3. Cubs 15-16 (3 back) - have won 3 in a row, almost back to .500

4. Reds 14-15 (3 back)

5. Pirates 13-17 (4.5 back)

 

I am hoping this is a start of something good, we will see?

Thank you! I have always liked the Mets broadcasters, TV ones as well as the radio guys. I used to listen to radio broadcasts with the legendary Bob Murphy and the future HoF broadcaster Gary Cohen. I appreciated them a lot because they were never homer-ish. They spoke glowingly about opposing players and coaches. I knew all the players back then. It is different now but I do like the tv broadcasters, one of which is the aforementioned Gary Cohen and former Mets Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling. They are great!

And another No-Hitter, as John Means pitches Baltimore's first one in 30 years vs Seattle. He missed a perfect game by one, as he faced only 27 batters but one reached on a drop third strike and then thrown out trying to steal second

 

@Coltsman1788 Congrats!

The Cubs were spoiled with Len Kasper and Jim D for years, they were great together. Len left us to go to the White Sox this season unfortunately.

@Coltsman1788 Congrats!

Thanks NFLfan!  I honestly had not heard till I read your post.  Very excited to learn of this. It’s encouraging to have at least one young pitcher in the rotation with promise. That’s a break through performance by that young man. Been knocking on the door for awhile. Hopefully we hold on to him!

Ya normally if I am watching one of the other games and Mets are playing I will it from them. They actually are knowledgeable about the other team, which sooo many are not. Some crews are just terrible as they try to act funny or say really dumb stuff

He pitched really well, just was mowing them down without an issue. I started watching in the 2nd on Mariners broadcast, and they just kept saying how well he was pitching without issue

    • Didn't Doug Pedersen get roasted by just about everybody for apparently doing just that last year?   The problem is that trade included a conditional first round pick.   That was always too high, IMO.
    • I think we were in it more with Seattle, but we were definitely out of it earlier than the other. Seattle game I can say was definitely on Reich's situational play calling.   For the titans, I'll say the defense was getting those stops. Two interceptions and the fumble near the goal line were wins for them. By the forth quarter though they were definitely gassed. The offense wasn't sustaining drives and giving them time off the field like they should have. No we wernt getting good pressure on the qb, and our secondary is more than a little suspect, but the defence is making plays. Like last year, if the offense could step up more then, I feel at least, the defense would look alot better than it does.
    • Exactly.  And our 43 defense had total losers because we came from a 34 defense.  There were no 43 zone players, so by default, Ballard started out the defense with a bunch of "losers".  Because drafted players start and make plays does not mean they made the team because they are better than average.    Average players will make plays and accumulate stats if they are on the field, but that doesn't mean that they can make plays against playoff teams or any other team when it matters.
    • Homer pick 24-17 Bad injury report pick 17-14 Colts Terrible injury report pick 27-10 Fins  
    • From Wikipedia: "Polian was promoted to GM in 1986. While GM of the Bills, Polian won the NFL Executive of the Year Award twice, in 1988 and in 1991. After the 1992 season, on February 4, 1993, after the Bills had appeared in, and lost, their 3rd straight Super Bowl, Polian was fired as general manager.   If this is factual, then in his first 5 years, he won executive of the year twice, and made a Super Bowl appearance. (1991 Giants vs. Bills).
