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

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 but they look flat today. They are hitless after 4 innings. There is still time but they seem flat.

 

Who wants to trade for Harvey? Who needs pitching?

Not really we keep getting people hurt lol it wont matter

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.

Ouch

Harvey was suspended without pay. He was supposed to start today. It must be serious.

You get them back 24 hrs after you posted them I think and if that's the case I will be waiting a bit.

Since I rarely use them I never have that problem

 

I believe this is the second time I have run out of them. But I wonder why people don't use them?

The Mets announcers mentioned that the Cardinals pitchers have the best ERA in the majors. 

Yes other than Wainwright , things are coming around. We just cant afford to be losing anymore position players.

IMO Their Starters have been excellent but they have had issues in the bullpen

Not really as much lately, Broxton is off one game on next . Oh started shaky early but form has been great the last 2 to 2 1/2 weeks. Rosenthall has been ok but was shaky when he returned. Broxton in my opinion is a liability he helped blow the 4 run lead against the Brewers. In that Game Bowmen gave up homer to lose but actually has been most consistent from get go. My big concern early was Oh but I'm not worried there anymore. They were losing early not scoring and playing shoddy Defense.Seigrest had bad start but hes been good lately as well.Socolivich  and Broxton era just under 8 other than them 2 I'm happy with BP last 2 to 2 1/2 weeks.

And to your credit PT yes the bullpen was terrible early say first 12 games. Broxton and Solocovich are expendable to me. Wainwright would do well in the pen . Bring up one of the young arms for his spot in the rotation.

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.

Report I'm hearing is he developed a migraine after playing golf the day before & didn't show up to the ball park for yesterday's game.

Your catcher kept that inning from being bigger than it was too.

    • It's no secret my favorite player in the draft is Liam Eichenberg.  Started 36 games the last three years for the Irish at Left Tackle, allowing only 3 total sacks, all of them in 2018.  Not a single sack the past 2 seasons.  This season, allowed only 1 QB hit.  And remember, their opponents included the pass rushing terror squad from Pitt.  Nada.  He's not the most athletic, and has a limited ceiling.  But his high-grade technique makes him plug and play ready today.  8.56 RAS score, mostly coming from his strength and agility scores.  Not so much on explosion.  The biggest knock on him is his 32 3/8" arms.  That's not poor.  That's downright bad.  And yet, he earns multiple first team all American honors, and keeps his QB clean.  It's a serious reach to take him at #21.  But I would do it.  My favorite player.
    • Alright guys, 1st round of team selection is over. We'll go in reverse order for team2. Only going to wait an hour for each.

    • Sorry,  long response.   Much to respond to.   To the Wilson ranking....   sorry, no.    That's NOT the way it works.    Wison may be tied in grade with over 30-something other players,  but at some point,  you have to rank them in order of preference   And Zierlein ranks has him at 64.  He could've been ranked at any of the other spots.   But he wasn't.   He was slotted at 64.   That's how this works.      And while you  can call it "all over the map"  a number of good evaluators have him with a first round grade.   The worst was Kiper with a mid-3rd round grade.   We took Wilson right in the middle of the range of rankings.   Mid-40's.    There isn't an issue with where we took him.   Tabor may have been CB1 for Florida,  but he was not a better NFL prospect.   He tested badly and slipped.   Wilson was the youngest player in the draft.   The size of a safety.   He had better upside and long range potential.  Unfortunately,   he wasn't mature enough and it hasn't worked out for him at any stop.   But he was drafted roughly where he should have been.      Carrie may or may not have been a good solid back-up,  but he was a BIG disappointment in Cleveland.   He was signed to a big deal.   $8 mill per.    That's starter money, not back-up.   Cut after two years.    And no one was interested until late in the process.   Ballard found value in the discount isle.   The gamble regarding Rhodes was this....    what if he didn't work out?    We signed him to be no less than CB2, and CB1 if things went well.    The $$ cost may not have been much.   But now imagine how this forum would look at Ballard if Rhodes was a bust and his play cost us a playoff spot?   The gamble was signing someone on a cheap deal.   People would be screaming that Ballard got what he paid for and why didn't he sign someone better to a bigger deal?   It would've been a lost opportunity to do better.   Again....  I'm not clearing Ballard of blame.   But no one bats 1,000 in this business.   A first rounder is considered by some to be a 50-50 proposition.   On balance, I think Ballard has done well.   Hope you'll note my post from the other day where I disagreed with Greg Rosenthal calling Ballard the best GM when it comes to the draft.   I think that's wrong and I explained why.   We will have a better idea by the end of this season.  Guys like Turay and Lewis from the 18 class,  plus the first four from the 19 class...   RYS, BB,  Parris and Oke.   If those guys come through,  Ballard's drafting will look even better.    And if not, we will see when the winter of 22 comes around.
