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.

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.

    • OK....    I thought what I was saying was pretty obvious, but perhaps not,  so I'll try again....   If Chris Ballard wants to blow up and destroy everything he's spent the last 4 years building, I can't think of anything that would do it better than what you suggest.   I'm NOT saying CB should give Q and Darius blank contracts and say "fill in with the numbers you want"....   but CB will re-sign them and they will be big and generous contracts done without a lot of public fighting (unless someone gets WAY out of line with what they're asking.   But I'm not expecting that.)   Ballard has built a franchise built on culture.   We talk about here.   The team talks about it non-stop.    It's buzzing all over the city of Indianapolis.   It's even now buzzing around the NFL.    To suddenly play hardball with your best players, or worse,  trade them because they don't play the right position,  would literally destroy what he's built.   Blow-up the locker room.  Undercut  the relationships Frank Reich has with his players.   The rest of the team would see how we treated Q and Darius and think....   "why should I play hard for this franchise?   F*** them!   I'll ask to be traded the first chance I get."   In case you haven't noticed,  players demanding to be traded has caught on in the NFL.   It's not just for basketball or baseball anymore.   Ballard would lose all credibility with everyone.   He'd have wasted his 4 years here.   Reich would be screwed.   The front office would be furious.   Irsay would likely want to fire him.   It would destroy this franchise.   Final thought....    since you love to throw around what Belichick does....    deal with this...   when the Patriots were winning Super Bowls and making deep playoff runs year after year...     do you know who some of the top players were, besides Brady?     Logan Mankins,  offensive guard.   Rob Gronkowski,  Tight End.    Vince Wilfork,  Nose Tackle.  Donte Hightower, Inside linebacker.    Four key players.    All paid very well.    All Belichick favorites.    None, with the possible exception of Gronk played a sexy, glamour position that you obsess about.       I expect to agree with NONE of this.    But as someone who covered the NFL for 30 years as a member of the media,  and has followed football as close as I could for 25 more years (55 in all)  this is my judgement what would happen if Ballard would do what you suggest.     Sorry.    Good luck.....  
    • There are a few national writers who have speculated that Justin Houston will sign elsewhere either during or just after the draft. A fair question if that happens is: what are the Colts’ remaining options?  1. Sign someone like Melvin Ingram or Ryan Kerrigan. Not very good options, but I’d take Ingram.  2. Draft at least one DE early. This is the best and most obvious option, but after the second round, the pickings are going to be slim. So it will have to be a Day 1 or early Day 2 pick.  3. Roll with what you’ve got. Ugly option to even think about.  Conclusion: At this point, the Colts’ pass rush is seriously hurting if Houston isn’t resigned. Ballard of course knows this. Here’s hoping there’s a breakthrough in negotiations pre-draft, because signing Houston gives the team flexibility in the draft.  If the Colts allow Houston to sign elsewhere, given that this is a weak DE draft class, the Colts are putting themselves in a position where they HAVE to get a top DE early. And that could have them reaching Day 1 to make sure they do. To avoid that, give Houston a sweetener in the offer and get him signed!
    • Are we really going to trust a website called....  the Daily Snark?!?    Really?   And are we really going to believe those pictures which should fall under the heading of...   “Too good to be true!”    Someone typed out the deal clear as can be and then just left them there on a desk where anyone could come along and take a picture!   How convenient!       I’ll believe when Roger Goodell announces it, or the teams do,  and not one minute sooner.  
    • I fortunately, this isn’t a great class of tight ends.   Not sure what we will find if we wait until Day 3?
