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

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

Freakin Rondon, our Bullpen is very suspect. 1 strike away from victory and the guy gives up a 3 run HR to Garner of all people. A game the Cubs should've had in the bag. Hey Princeton, that is why I miss Chapman, our Bullpen is a joke.

Still do not want to pay for AC it wasn't the bullpen it was Rondon

Come on man, he gave up a 3 run HR and just needed 1 strike to end the game. This would've been a huge win, he blew it plain and simple.

I am not defending HR just stating it was one player not the entire bullpen 

 

Reminder: 

 Wade Davis had pitched the last 3 days and was unavailable

@2006Coltsbestever Everything Will Be Okay

Yeah I am ok but Rondon can go suck an egg :sarcasm:. Anyway I had to do some massive research and found out Bud Selig actually changed the rule for Post Season games regarding rain outs. In a Post Season game, 9 Innings have to be completed regardless even if it continues the next day. So if a team scores 10 runs in the 1st Inning and leads 10-0 and the rains come pouring in in the 3rd Inning and it gets suspended, the score remains 10-0 and play resumes the next day in the 3rd Inning. That is great to know, that rule change took place in 2011 and I had no idea that it did. In the Regular Season 5 Innings still need to be completed though otherwise it is wiped from the books. No bigge there, the Playoffs is the main thing. It would suck if your team was up 10-0 in Game 1 of the WS and it got called in the 3rd Inning because of rain haha and they started from scratch but under the new rules not the case. Excellent rule change! Now we need to change the rule of HFA being determined by the winner of the All-Star game.

Yankees had plenty of opportunities to put runs on the board earlier in the game & ran themselves out of innings. Their defense was less than stellar yesterday as well. 

 

Almost got shut out for the first time this season before Gardner launched one in the 9th.

 

It really must have been like pouring salt on a wound seeing Chapman close it out.

 

Let's see how it unfolds today.

Not for me AC was a pure rental what would have really hurt would have been if Castro had hit the HR

Yankees are playing well. And they are doing it mostly with young players. I like that. I would never have been a fan of the Yankees teams that traded away future very good to great players like Fred McGriff and Jay Buhner, both prospects in their farm system back in the day. McGriff ended up having a borderline Hall of Fame career. 

 

Things are different with the Yankees now.

 

Btw, congratulations on finally being named a "Senior Member". (It just means that you have over 1000 posts.)

Yeah congrats on the win, that was a tough one to take. Cubs played beautifully the whole game up until 2 outs in the 9th. Gardner smashed one out, I knew at that point you guys would win because Chap was coming in.

Cards end up winning 10 -0 last night Bats are alive even in absence of Fowler and Piscotty . Pham looked good . Several Cards are at or above 300 avg . Now others are heading that way. If they would just move Wainwright to the pen lol . Lance Lynn was very good again hes heading towards being a stellar Ace and FA at end of year unless Cards get him to sign .

That is a lot of rain! I pray for the best for everyone. We had torrential downpours yesterday with heavy winds. I can't imagine getting a full week of this. I hope everything is okay with you.

Princeton and Gibson County will get in from the North and South since the White and Patoka are Tributaries of Wabash and the Wabash the same with the Ohio

    • A draft tidbit from Zak Keefer today.  Ballard has conducted 4 drafts as our GM.  In those 4 years he has made 10 picks in the 2nd rd and 2 picks in the 1st rd. Those 1st rd picks being Nelson and Hooker who is no longer on the team.  Interesting facts that reinforces the feel a trade is being worked on with our 1st pick. 
    • Nah, J. Eason is going to pull a Tom Brady and steal the starting job away from Wentz. Wentz will be watching from the bench like Bledsoe did by week 6. 
    • I’m with you,  MIke!   Even being a big admirer of tOSU program.    I also want us to draft another DE as well.    We need to take more swings, take more bites out of the DE apple.     We need to find more pass rush. 
    • I don't completely write them off, but I'm highly skeptical of them, especially when they don't match the tape. And with Jones they don't. In my opinion.  You can find the odd play here and there by pretty much any QB, where makes a play with his feet. Even the least athletic QBs in the league have some base level of athleticism to even reach that level and in perfect of circumstances, when the defense takes a bad angle or whiffs on a tackle you can look mobile. This is not the norm for Jones. Those types of plays are the exception when the pocket collapses.    Agree. Being an athletic QB doesn't guarantee success and being non-athletic doesn't doom you.    He's good enough athlete to play NFL QB. He's not good enough athlete to make plays out of structure and on the move consistently. Which doesn't mean he won't be a good QB... but it means he won't make those types of plays if/when needed.  I don't think we disagree on that. I think he's gifted enough to play well... I don't think he's athletically gifted to be an off-structure playmaker with any sort of consistency in the league. 
    • I don't get this. First, if you're skeptical of the pro day numbers, then just throw out all of this year's testing. I think that's unreasonable. If you want to bump him up a tenth of a second, that still puts him in the same range as those other guys.   Second, watching him play, he has more than adequate movement ability. This has become a meme. He's not Fields or Lance. But even in today's NFL, you don't have to be freakishly athletic to play QB at a high level. He's athletic enough. Another one.    We agree, if I identified Jones as "my guy" in this draft, I wouldn't be moving up to #3 for him. But he's a different kind of prospect than Lance and Fields, and as much as there is to like about those guys, they have question marks of their own. And if they were to struggle in the NFL, it wouldn't be the first time that a tools-y athletic QB prospect fell short of expectations. But I'm not taking issue with Lance or Fields, at all. They should be ranked high this year.   Just pointing out, again, that some of the Mac Jones coverage is unfair. He's being written off as an unathletic, physical dud, and that's nonsense. He has similar or better physical ability as several other guys who have gone top five in recent seasons. Dwayne Haskins and Teddy Bridgewater were physically uninspiring. Mac Jones is a good enough athlete to play NFL QB.   It's fair to say he'll be overdrafted if he goes in the top ten. I'm disagreeing with the idea that he's not gifted enough to play well.
