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

Asdrubal Cabrera got hurt last night and may go on the DL. That may be a good thing.

 

The Mets are always hesitant to bring up their prospects. The #1 prospect in their farm system is arguably the best player in the minors. He, Amed Rosario, is described as a "defensive whiz". I love pitching, defense and timely hitting. Many are reporting that Rosario will finally be brought up to the majors. I hope that is true. I can't wait to see him.

They might as well because they need a spark. That division race is already over but the season obviously isn't. Can't be hesitant to bring up your #1 prospect. Bring some excitement to the Mets. Set New York a buzz

Speaking of prospects, who are some of the top players in your respective favorite teams' farm systems?

 

I found Eloy Jimenez for the Cubs.

Gleyber Torres for the Yankees. He was a Cubs prospect. Was he traded away in the Chapman deal?

Besides Rosario, Law has Mets prospect Dominic Smith at 22nd best prospect. 

 

White Sox???

 

Cardinals?

Yeah it's going to be tough for anyone to catch Washington, the Mets could still get a WildCard though. I know that sounds silly because we have 130 games to go but unless Washington falls off a cliff I cant see them winning less than 95 games.

Nationals are on a tear. They're probably gonna have the best record in the NL. But as we all know, the postseason is the demon for certain teams. Definitely been the case with the Nationals

Yeah their PostSeason struggles are puzzling. They get ousted early every season, maybe it will change this season if they do indeed win the Division and have HFA.

I think it was only last year. The year before they did not make the playoffs and they fired the manager, Matt Williams. I cannot recall if they made the playoffs the year before that.

I hate being out of them. When they are replenished, I have a few to get back to. 

 

How do 50 "Likes" go so fast? We all like each other too much, no pun intended. :P

Yeah they made it the year before and same thing happened. I will have to go back and look but I think the Giants beat them early in 2014. 2015 they did miss the Playoffs, last season Dodgers beat them early.

Yes they have been over .500  since 2012 

 

  The Nats have been known for shocking leadership changeovers

They are on a different level this year. Harper is a veteran now. They have Murph. Zimmerman looks great. Strausberg is no longer a kid. I remember a few years ago, they just shut him down even though he was not injured. 

 

The Nats are loaded with talent.

To win or to lose?

 

I like Dusty. Everywhere he has gone, they have improved (Giants, Cubs, Reds, now Nats), but they have not been able to win it all.

In every place he wears out his welcome and "moves on"

I don't know what happened but they are reporting on the radio that my Mets have suspended Matt Harvey without pay "for violation of team rules". He was supposed to start today.

 

Get rid of the guy, please.

A lot of the players are different now. And of course, the coaching staff is different.  

Since we're highlighting Nationals playoff disappointments, this one is relevant as well. Shouldn't have lost that series

Someone thought that perhaps it was because he may have attended the Rangers (hockey) playoff game but I believe that game was taking place at the same time as the Mets game. If he was not in the dugout yesterday, someone would have said something.

I just checked. The Rangers game was at 3pm. So, he may have attended it.

I think he was with the team already because I hear that the suspension started yesterday.

 

Fans are ticked off that the Mets did not report this until today. Fans bought tickets to the game and will pay lots for food and parking to see Adam Wilk pitch, not Harvey. At least it is a nice day.  

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This Harvey thing, whatever it was, seems to have greatly affected the team. They are down 6-0. The pitcher subbing for Harvey did not have it. The team had been hitting well lately, scoring an average of 8 runs per game in the last week. Facing a pitcher making his first start, Mets hitters are hitless after 5 innings. There is still time but they seem flat.

 

Who wants to trade for Harvey? Who needs pitching?

Still out of likes from last night , seen a few comments up through here I would like .Cards up 4 to 0 3rd inning its looking like the Cubs may be faced with a must win to hold on to first place plus the Reds may win as well before tonights  Cubs Yankees matchup.

    • Apparently it's a two year deal for Fisher, however the second year can be voided by the colts.
    • Age and health would be the argument for Smith and Leonard right now.  It’s not all about position.
    • It is my understanding the Colts grade every player on every pay.  Their has to be a method.  It was my understanding, i don't KNOW, that more teams than not subscribe to PFF, for their own reasons. Perhaps they too snark at their numbers.    The story i recently read/heard about a fumble recovery for a touchdown turned one DE's weekly grade from the 60's to near 90, well, that is very concerning if true.  The best way to see if someone is any good was back when i watched every Colts play in super slow-mo, sometimes frame by frame to see what really happened. Unfortunately i couldn't compliment that with all-22.  AC looked BAD for his 1st 3 seasons in pass-pro, and Andrew was terrible with timing and accuracy in the short game. Based on Harbaugh's pre-draft hype, and others of course "not since Elway," that part of his game disgusted me.  PFF can't reflect how much benefit or damage is done by the overall effectiveness of those around you, or good or bad coaching. Ras isn't everything but is a very solid place to start.
    • Nate only missed 1 kick in the Divisional round loss against the Patriots, it was a what would've been a then career long 54 yarder when he was rushed on to the field to attempt it as time was expiring due to the Chargers having burned all their timeouts. Had he made that kick, it would've only tied the game, not given San Diego the lead or win. He converted all 3 of his extra point attempts in that game.   He was brutal in the 2009 Divisional round loss to the Jets, he had only missed 3 kicks all season and missed 3 in that game alone, although one of them was a  57 yard attempt that would've tied his career long. He had already missed a 36 yarder and that Bolts were up 7-0 when Norv trotted him out to attempt that long one at the end of the half, and that miss combined with the earlier one seemed to scramble his eggs. Later in the game while down by 10, he badly missed a 40 yard attempt and although the Chargers got another touchdown, they ended up losing by 3.    He missed when he hit the upright from 48 yards out in the 2007 Divisional round victory at Indy and in the only AFCCG he played in, Kaeding accounted for all 12 of the Chargers' points by going 4 for 4 against the undefeated Patriots in the snow flurries at Foxboro.
    • You're probably right.  But a franchise LT is the more important position.  More than RT, and even an All Pro LB.   I'm not saying he'll sacrifice either of them in order to sign Fisher long term.  But I think that once they see that Fisher can play, they'll want to wrap him up long term.  He won't be cheap either.   I think it was on one of the podcast they pointed out where all of the LTs for the playoff teams were drafted.  Getting one that works out past the first round is pretty rare.  And we probably won't even have a first rounder next year.
