Our goal for the mock is to make it super easy, and super quick, so folks can have a painless experience. As long as you show up 5-10 minutes before your pick to see what is available, you'll be on for no longer than 15min.
As far as needs are concerned, you don't have to follow anything if you don't want. If you get the Colts in the lottery, feel free to take a WR at 21, or even trade up :-) and get one earlier.
Sounds good. I'm a computer/tech ill* (my own word, supposed to sound like illiterate), I'll try not to screw it up when draft time comes.
Only disagrement I have with your Colts needs is I think we need a clear alpha WR or TE to take the next step, so I'd put that in the Primary slot. Otherwise, I see it the way you do for the most part.
His teams with real quarterbacks is 21-11. At least be realistic with your bashing. Otherwise, you just look like you are picking a fight you won’t win. Team had more all-pros on the roster last year than everyone but the Packers who had the same amount. Don’t be a tool
Yes, it's been a long time since they were the Cardinals AAA affiliate. In 1982, A. Ray Smith moved the Springfield Redbirds to Louisville as the Cardinals AAA affiliate in the American Association. This is when I became a St. Louis Cardinals fan, because I could go see future Cardinals as they were working their way up to the majors.
The Louisville Redbirds played in Cardinal Stadium, which was the former home of the Louisville Colonels (Red Sox affiliate) and also the home of the University of Louisville football Cardinals. The Redbirds enjoyed great success in Louisville and in their first season broke many minor league attendance records. In 1983, they because the first minor league franchise to draw over 1 million fans during a season.
In 1998, the Cardinals switched their AAA affiliate to Memphis and Louisville became the AAA team for the Milwaukee Brewers. They were still the Redbirds in 1998 and then changed their name to the River Bats in 1999.
In 2000, the team moved to their new downtown ballpark, Louisville Slugger Field. That year, they also became the AAA Affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds and continue that affiliation now.
Have you been to a Cardinals game before? Busch Stadium is really nice and the view of the Arch beyond center field is a great backdrop. Hope you can make a game there...I am hoping to do the same later this summer.
I had a great time! Sorry, I can't give a final score, but when I left at the end of the 6th inning, the Indians led 3-0. It was getting late and I had to work today.
Interesting that the Reds were wearing the Cincinnati spring training jerseys, but the Indians were wearing the Columbus Clippers uniforms, so it was kinda strange.
The players are most likely going to be AAA and AA players this year, but there may be a couple that get called up due to an injury to a major league player.
It was still baseball and the first time I've been to a game since mid-summer of 2019, so it was a very pleasurable evening. Tickets were cheap and seating was general admission, so you could sit anywhere in the designated areas. They limited ticket sales so everyone could be spread out.
Here's a view from my seat behind home plate.
