Jay Kirk Baseball Thread since 2017: The 2021 season, Dodgers Repeat?


Recommended Posts

Pretty quiet in here lately? Where is everyone? I'm assuming spending time with their wives or mommas for Mother's Day?

 

What are everyone's thoughts in the slide rule? Yesterday's game against the Cards got interesting after this happened....

I agree with Maddon/Lester, it's getting a bit silly. I've played second and know #%*@ well that if I don't run through the bag and throw I'm possibly going to get creamed!!!

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

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

I did not see the play. Anyone have a video?

 

It seems that the umpires are applying the letter of the rule rather than the spirit or intent of the rule. From the little I read, it seemed like a bad call.

And don't get me wrong, the result of the game didn't rest on that bad call, the Cardinals played a great game and won......Refs/rules committee are killing the game.

Severino is getting singled to death in the 3rd inning. 3-1 Stros with the bases loaded. Joe just gave Severino the hook. 2 1/3 innings 3 runs 7 hits. 

 

Seems the Yankee bats have gone cold lately. Judge has about 5-6 Ks in the last 3 games. Looks to me like they are taking too many good pitches & then chasing junk out of the strike zone.

 

Green comes in & throws one pitch for an inning ending double play. Let's get those bats going now!!

My Step-dad, Mother, and myself just went Gray's, that was great stuff. Nothing like a great meal, that is where mom wanted to go. Great Chicken and Mash Potatoes! Cubs getting drilled it looks like 4-0, they are struggling. Bryant out again due to illness. Did someone in St Louis poison him :sarcasm:.

6-4 Astros going to bottom 7th. Stros take advantage of a Castro throwing error to score. Astros have 3 errors & Yanks didn't capitalize on any of them.

I almost picked the Astros for the WS this season. If you look back at my predictions I had them winning their Division. That team is really good.

The umpires have been shoddy at best not just in this series. Inconsistent strike zones affect pitchers as well as hitters, along with missed calls they need to be addressed by the league to tighten up the ship.

I gave you a LIKE for your first sentence, sorry to hear about your friend. Man that is very tragic.

What a wild game the Mets and Brewers are playing. I left to meet my family about an hour ago. I believe the score was 7-1 after 6. It is now 9-8 in the bottom of the 8th. Tying and go-ahead runs on.

 

Mets starter was pretty good but gave up 3 runs in the last 1+ innings. He left with a 7-3 lead.

 

My family just arrived. Enjoy the rest of the day. Hopefully the Mets don't blow it.

Wow. Very sorry to read that. My condolences. That is awful.

 

I will reply again later.

Ah yes The Captain Derek Jeter. One of the greatest Yankees that will ever live. All I heard was how he didn't have enough range to play SS and he made the media eat its words on that. Always great year in and year out. Truly one of the best

Was reading about this wreck earlier.....Sorry to hear it was someone you knew. Prayers to the families that are going to have to deal with this loss, and to all the responders who were present, I know all to well what they had to  experience. Bad deal.

Game 2 not starting off very well for the Yankees. 6-0 top of the first. Tanaka getting hammered.  Three HRs. Bregman with a Grand Slam.

Not a good way to kick off Derek Jeter night. Astros are really good though. They're a legitimate contender

Well, they did. The Mets are not going anywhere this year.  After the losses of the 3 starters and the closer, they have the worst ERA in baseball. Who would have thunk it! They lost today's game 11-9 after leading 7-1. :(

 

Anyway, it is not fun being a Mets fan right now.

Yeah. This game is looking bleak. 8-0 now in the 3rd. The Astros pitcher had 7 consecutive strike outs till a ground out just a minute ago.

Injuries have really ravaged the Mets. They are struggling mightily.

Something like this always puts things in perspective. We get upset when our teams play poorly or lose but they are playing a game. This here is real life -- it is life and death. I read the news stories about it. It is terrible. May the deceased rest in peace. 

 

I hope you and your wife had an otherwise happy anniversary.

Cubs are struggling as well but at least I do have that they are the Champs until the season ends. Having Washington in your Division sucks too.

Yeah the Yankees laid an egg but at least they won the 1st game. Great night for the great Jeter!

Yes but perhaps lose the series 1-3.  A little life left in them however. It's 9-4 in the 6th. It's what I like about this team this season. They don't quit & are never really out of it till the last out.

We had a good time was heading home when we seen the story , they had no clue who was involved . but some how in my mind even then I knew it could be him. Then it was confirmed to me this morning. Yes its been a day of reflection of just how precious life is and that none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow here on this earth.

    • Id be blown away if theres any truth to this. Its the same with the Hurtz traded out of philly rumors. Since when has it been established that if your drafted in the NFL you have to start immediately. Love or Hurtz are on rookie contracts not going anywhere, they will sit behind the respective starters (Wentz, Rodgers) till its time. People forget Aaron sat behind Favre for 3 seasons
    • Nah, they chose to hedge their wagon to Jordan Love. We should not bail them out. There was a reason why we did not move up for Jordan Love, whether it was the interview process or whether it was because they felt he wasn't first round value. If they did not feel he was first round value then, they are not going to believe he is now.    
    • All I'm going to say is... Jordan Love has shown to Green Bay media about the same amount Jacob Eason has shown to Indy media. Have no idea whatsoever how any of them can have any sort of opinion on him by watching PRECISELY ZERO snaps of him in any sort of action this year. Now, the reports were not great coming out of camp, but again... the most they've seen in camp is a couple of practices where he's probably not thrown more than 10-15 balls.   It's not like people didn't expect Love to need some time to get ready. Now I too have about the same level of insight on Love and his progression so I can't say much, but if they are willing to trade him, IMO that doesn't bode well for his prospects. If you trade up in the 1st for a QB and a year later you've given up on him, then there must be something that's not inspiring confidence and thus... I'd be reluctant to trade for him unless it's as a reclaimation project(i.e. 3d round pick or lower) rather than as a presumtive QB of the future.    Also just for the record Rob Demovsky is a local Aaron Rodgers loyalist.     
    • He will have a defibrillator handy, don't worry!!! 
    • So many Jordan Love fans on here last year. I started to really dislike the guy, due in large part to them. I thought we dodged a bullet when we traded that pick and stayed away from him.
