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

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.  

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

Yeah that rule needs to be changed, Mets could get screwed 2 days in a row. I posted earlier that at least the Playoffs are different, if a game gets suspended before the 5th is completed in the Playoffs, the MLB just resumes where it left off.

 

I remember when you proposed that. I like it.

Oh. No.  Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is in a lot of pain after diving for a ball. Looks like he dislocated a finger or hurt his wrist. We have so many players with injuries.

 

And now we have a rain delay. It should have come a pitch earlier. 

Damn. Your team can't catch a break. I hope he doesn't have to miss any time.

That was ugly...

..a question...was their something with Matt Szuzur....I thought he was high quality bench guy who didn't mind being a bench guy

 

..'designated for assignment' means anyone can get him right?  Even the Cardinals?

..why did they do that?  Anybody know?

Making room for a LHP, Zastryzny. Hate to see him go, awesome bench guy!!!!

Yeah I am glad the Playoffs rule is different. It would suck if a team was up 8-0 and rain came in a 4th Inning and it couldn't get completed that night. MLB changed that rule back in 2011 that all games will resume where it left off the day after. I wish the Regular Season was the same but because of scheduling issues they probably wont change it in the Regular Season because teams play every day for the most part on a hectic schedule.

Let's hope not. 

 

Btw, I liked your comment in that thread in the Colts section where you talked about your brother. I suggested that you ask your sister-in-law for the helmet. 

 

I will be in the Nashua, NH area the weekend of June 4th. My nephew is graduating from high school there.

Cubs were outhit 11-4 and Pineda gave up just 3 hits in 6 innings. He outpitched Hendricks and shouldn't have even had a chance of being saddled with a loss

A lot of teams get out hit, Hendricks didn't allow any runs, Pineda gave up a HR. The Cubs very much deserved to win IMO.

And the Cubs D kept them scoreless until the 9th, so why wouldn't they deserve the win? Different story tonight though, thanks to our horrible starting pitcher.

It's like saying a team that gets 1 or 2 hits deserves to win a game. That's not true at all

Yeah I am not sure why Maddon ever made him a starter. I didn't see it coming before the season. He just isn't good, I figured he would've rolled with Montgomery over him. This is looking like the Cubs about to drop 2 in a row to the Ultimate Franchise. We are the Champs but they are the Kings in the history of the game. The Yankees have a Very Good team this season.

Anderson was made a starter because of his injury history and the fact he had trouble getting ready quickly

Dylan Covey is not winning me over. He's already given up 7 hits and 4 runs in 2 innings of work. This was my concern about the White Sox. Playing outside the division. The only two teams they've played outside the AL Central are Yankees and Orioles. Yes those teams are really good but it doesn't give me hope either

He left tonight's game with a back problem. I'm sure what ever it was effected his pitching tonight. Was his original injury a back issue?

That's your opinion.....My opinion is the team that "deserves" a win is the one who did enough to keep the score in their favor at the end. Does a team who only gets a couple of hits but their pitcher throws a no-hitter deserve to win?

A no hitter is different because it's a no hitter

Yes and No, it really depends on the situation. Obviously a lot of luck is involved in Baseball so if a team has like 15 hits but they keep leaving runners on and the other team has 1 hit and it's a HR and that team wins 1-0 then I agree. Cubs actually had 2 HR's and the Yankees really only had 2 Innings where they threatened to do damage before the 9th. Your OP said the Cubs didn't deserve to win, I just disagree with that comment. It's not like the Yankees were knocking the cover off the ball.

Was it a back injury or a backside injury due to the Yanks repeatedly kickin his butt?

 

Seriously, I hope he's ok, just not a fan. He may have hurt himself when he terribly short hopped the bunt to first.

Yeah, I thought he threw that one very awkwardly. I don't wish back pain or back problems on my worst enemy.

I've had serious back issues in my past & it's not pleasant.

Cards up 4-0 in the 5th Leake pitching well yet again and the bats not showing any sign's of going back to sleep.

I tell ya man, the Reds have surprised me. Not only do they have some pitching but they have bats as well. That has always been their problem was the hitting. Not looking like much of a problem so far

Chiropractors couldn't help me but I know they've helped many others.

Mines at least delayed the inevitable....I've abused my back all my life and my job now certainly doesn't help....I'll have to pay the piper at some point.

Don't sleep on the Reds. One of my surprise teams to make some noise before this season is over.

I used to think they had good hitters in Votto, Bruce, Phillips and others. Phillips is in the top 5 in batting average this year with the Braves.

    • Yeah, it'd probably end up being a top 40 pick. Detroit would do it because they have 1st round picks in 2022 and 2023. So it'd be a win-win for both teams. Wouldn't mind pulling the trigger!  
    • Knowing Ballard though, like he did with the Redskins, he could get a future 2nd from Detroit Lions instead of their current 3rd. That is how that man rolls.  
    • I doubt it will be a big vet. They aren’t going to want to compete with Eason. But I do think they might bring someone in to make sure Eason earns it. They have one other QB on the roster. From what I understand the media guys have mentioned the colts are fine with Eason and if he looks bad in the preseason there will be a vet that they can sign later.
    • That works. This draft is deep. We could do a lot with all those picks!  
    • 12:30 eastern today. Might not be up yet...   But it's not that he downgraded the position or suggested they're not interested. He just doubled down on the idea that they aren't going to reach, they aren't going to force it (at LT or edge), and that they want competition. Combine that with my thoughts on the tackle class and the way the board seems like it's going to fall, I don't see them having a great option there at #21. Like you said, maybe they feel great about Jenkins, but I don't...    I haven't listened to Irsay. I read some of his comments. Don't know if it's an indication of what they're going to do in the first round. I think corner might be one of the best positions this year, so that probably means they'll have plenty of options at #21, but even a trade back probably still gets them a good prospect at that position. And everyone internally has acknowledged that Rock still is a work in progress, but they're all still encouraged by his raw ability and his hard work. So Irsay saying we have two but want three is kind of just an obvious statement to me.   I still think they trade back. Maybe not totally out of R1, depending on what kind of offers are out there, but I'm still betting they don't pick at #21. Ballard was kind of coy when asked about whether they want more picks.
