Maybe for MLB 2018

My wife is the baseball fan in the family and she's been counting the days. Go Giants! (Can't get any worse than last season.)


IPowrie - 2/13/2018 at 04:03 PM

Should be excited but it is hard when your team is going to suck. Anyway's go Tigers


Sang - 2/13/2018 at 06:38 PM

You can edit the first post and change the title to 2018 Lee - unless you, as a Tiger's fan, enjoy living in the past.....


porkchopbob - 2/13/2018 at 09:15 PM

Hoping the Brewers build on last season.

And maybe, just maybe you could take sarcasm to a lower level. Oh wait! I wouldn't want you to give up your only redeeming quality.


Lee - 2/15/2018 at 01:08 PM

And how are your White Sux going to do this year? Probably battling it out for last place the the Tiggers I would guess.

They made some good moves in the off season. Beefed up the outfield which was a mess last year. And if they take away Bumgarner's motorcycle they might have a shot. Idiot.

Hey, it's an even number year. They seem to do well in this spot.

They have the 8th highest odds of winning it all. Better than rooting for my Tiggers.

Haven't heard the nuts and bolts of what happened but they should have signed Darvish. So the Cubs got him for next to nothing. They are so afraid of the Cubs that they basically banned Chicago fans from the pre sale to get tickets there.

I live in Chicago and couldn't buy tickets. They know by your zip code and will block you.

Clever folks up in Wisconsin.

Same thing happens in Nashville - they don't let Blackhawk fans get tickets because it was a sea of red jerseys there........

I seem to recall that. Couldn't pay someone to see the Black Hawks now.

I hadn't heard this before but my best friend from Michigan said this is not uncommon for college football games. Trying to make sure locals get tickets. Kind of a silly idea IMO. Kind of easy to buy a ticket for anything online.

Lee - 3/18/2018 at 11:42 AM

I am going to Florida in April. Going to see The Rays. Never been there. Really looking forward to it. They are playing the Minnesota Twinkies.


emr - 3/18/2018 at 02:44 PM

My giants did make some good moves; but it remains to be seen if their style of play can be revived or if itís the equivalent to Phil Jacksonís triangle offense.

Otherwise 2/3 of the way into the season they (yikes) trade madbum to a contender in exchange for a ton of prospects. Then posey goes. Then I root for 2021

Except in Nashville they wouldn't let you buy online with an out of state address..... they also sold the tickets as packages - you couldn't just buy a ticket to the Blackhawks game - it was combined with another home game.....

But you're right - doesn't matter this year.....


emr - 3/24/2018 at 10:04 PM

MADBUM broke his hand. Probably wont be till June/July till we know if there are long term effects.

The Giants are through. Looking like adding salary to win might be a bad decision.

Fire sale to start later


Lee - 3/24/2018 at 10:31 PM

That sucks. Now they need to fill a hole in their rotation. And right before the season starts.


emr - 3/24/2018 at 11:05 PM

MADBUM is irreplaceable and the Giants already have the second highest payroll behind the Bosox. This one isn't fixable. They made their offseason moves with the hopes of one more title run. I see no options except wholesale dismantling.

My family waited from 1954 t0 2010. We have patience


Lee - 3/25/2018 at 12:00 PM

No idea what their Triple A system looks like but they obviously have to come up with something.


Lee - 3/25/2018 at 12:33 PM

Four days until Opening Day!


Lee - 3/29/2018 at 09:34 AM

Yay Opening Day! Go Tiggers!


Lee - 3/29/2018 at 09:36 AM

Here are my bets for this season:

Dodgers: Yasiel Puig over 80.5 RBI's

Cubs: Kyle Schwarber under 29.5 HRs

Cubs: Anthony Rizzo under 99.5 RBI's

Cubs: Total wins under 94.5

Orioles: Manny Machado under 99.5 RBI's

Orioles: Manny Machado will he get traded during the season. I say no.

Orioles: Adam Jones over 80.5 RBI's

Giants: Johnny Cueto over 12.5 wins

Red Sox: Mookie Betts under 100.5 runs scored

D Backs: Paul Goldschmidt under 105.5 RBI's

Tigers: Total wins over 68.5

Brewers: Took them to win the NL Central

Indians: Picked them to win the World Series


Lot of stuff to keep straight. Emoji Good thing I am not a betting man!


Lee - 3/29/2018 at 11:24 AM

I took Cueto as I think maybe, just perhaps, he'll get an extra start or two with Bumgarner out a couple months. Not saying they will go to a four man rotation like the good 'ol days but ya never know. As I've already said they fortified their lineup. Should bode well for the games they play although losing their best pitcher can't help their season long chances.

Plus they have to play the Dodgers 10 times in their first 40 games I think it is.

If they can survive that, who knows?


funkyfitter - 3/29/2018 at 02:24 PM

Here's hoping that the Phillies build on the momentum they had going on the second half of last year !


StratDal - 3/29/2018 at 04:52 PM

Here's to Chavez "Latrine"!

http://abc7.com/sports/dodger-stadium-repairs-underway-after-sewage-spill/3 275367/

Go Giants!


Lee - 3/29/2018 at 05:49 PM

RIP Rusty Staub. Great player and even a better person.


emr - 3/31/2018 at 02:17 PM

re: Rusty.

all true; also a great cook. When I lived in NYC c 1980 Tuesday (I think it was Tues) nights rib special at his namesake Restaurant saw my friends and me on a regular basis. Used to have a yearly charity rib eating contest. Usually won by the likes of Willis Reed.One year Brook Shields won (who would of thunk.)

and re: who would have thunk. My Giants beat the Dodgers twice by a 1-0 score on Panik solo homers. Took the claw down


Lee - 4/3/2018 at 06:30 PM

Washington & Pittsburgh, only undefeated teams. Nats don't surprise me but the Bucs do.


Lee - 4/3/2018 at 08:44 PM

Boy the weather in The Midwest & East Coast is brutal for baseball. Games getting snowed out and such. I am going to the Tigers / White Sox game at Comiskey Saturday and I think the temp is going to be in the upper thirties. Doubt we will make it all. There is an enclosed bar in right field.


Lee - 4/4/2018 at 08:48 PM

Got my tickets today for the Cubs / Tigers game at Wrigley in July.

And going to the White Sox / Tigers game at Comiskey Saturday if they don't call it. Snowed here last night.


Lee - 4/6/2018 at 10:16 AM

Going to the Tigers / White Sox game at Comiskey tomorrow. High temp of 39 degrees.


Stephen - 4/6/2018 at 03:33 PM

I can't believe that eagle landed on the OF's shoulder -- that guy coulda been seriously maimed if its talons were out or got aggressive -- guess it was supposed to land on the mound where its human 'handler' was -- c'mon Sox, let's fly like an eagle


Lee - 4/7/2018 at 11:24 AM

Maybe the eagle wasn't named Steve Miller.


Lee - 4/8/2018 at 11:19 AM

Froze at Comiskey yesterday. Thought about going today. $5 cheapest thickets but I don't want to freeze again.


Stephen - 4/9/2018 at 03:14 PM

ChiSox & Cubs in dueling home matinees today, what's up w/that -- then the big-slugging (yawn) Bomb-ers here tmrw


Jerry - 4/10/2018 at 12:47 AM

Watched the Rockies opener with the Braves. Everybody was bundled up completely, only eyes were exposed and it was hard to tell who was who except by their position on the field and name on back of the jersey.
The announcers kept giving the temp from the scoreboard and I never heard it go above freezing, add to that the wind blowing across the snow on the field.
Some of time it looked as if the Michelin Man was at bat.

It happens. Not often but usually a couple times a season. Regarding the games yesterday, there was more snow up on the north side where I live so I think the Sox had a better chance to clear the field. There's quite a bit of snow up here not far from Wrigley.


Lee - 4/13/2018 at 01:34 PM

Went to the Cubs game yesterday. Temperature was about 70-72 degrees at game time. All of the sudden in the 3rd or 4th inning the temp dropped probably 20-25 degrees in a matter of seconds. Never experienced anything like it. Crowd was kinda sparse to begin with but when the temp dropped the place started to clear out big time.

Plus the Cubs got smoked anyway.


Lee - 4/13/2018 at 08:18 PM

Flubs scored once yesterday and they are getting shut out today. Their hitting is as bad as the Tigers. Tough rooting for them at this point but the Cubs should be doing better.


Lee - 4/15/2018 at 10:09 AM

What a game at Wrigley. A comedy of errors. The Braves must feel sick. Everything that could have gone wrong for them did. It was fun to watch though.

Unless you are a Braves fan.

my son are and I were stunned

it looked like rec ball team


Lee - 4/16/2018 at 07:47 PM

I realize it's only April but watching the A.L. Central it appears the White Sux and Tiggers are already jockeying for last place.


Lee - 4/17/2018 at 04:45 PM

With this weather, I think the season might end in December.


Stephen - 4/17/2018 at 04:50 PM

We get our 1st look at phenom Shohei Ohtani & streaking Angels tonite, countering w/David -- Xander is about a week away -- Mookie (foot) & Hanley (HBP) fine -- Dustin will be back next month -- JBJ will heat up w/weather at plate, he's the game's best outfielder
you are never forgotten, Felix Pappalardi


Lee - 4/17/2018 at 05:00 PM

What is JBJ?


Stephen - 4/17/2018 at 05:06 PM

Jackie Bradley Jr. -- he made one of his awesome catches Sat in RF


Lee - 4/17/2018 at 05:12 PM

Oh. They haven't been the same since Yaz retired.


emr - 4/17/2018 at 05:32 PM

So Bryce (Roy Hobbs) Harper hits a 406 ft homer while his bat snapped in half. I think the kid has some talent


Stephen - 4/17/2018 at 10:21 PM

quote:
CHICAGO -- Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is advocating for a shorter season, even if that means a smaller paycheck for players.

"I think we play too much baseball," Rizzo said Tuesday during his weekly appearance on ESPN 1000. "Yes, guys are going to take pay cuts. But are we playing this game for the money or do we love this game? I know it's both, but in the long run it will make everything better."

Rizzo believes a transition period with guaranteed contracts could be worked out, perhaps "grandfathering" them into a new system with new contracts reflecting fewer games played.

agree w/this, the season is too long -- shorten spring training, let players work out offseason kinks in 1st few weeks of season -- might help to begin bring outrageous salaries back in line w/reality, also possibly reduce the # of injuries that sideline so many of them


Lee - 4/17/2018 at 11:11 PM

I would rather have these bad weather games in April than during the playoffs. This has gone on for decades. I remember going to games as a kid when it was snowing so I don't really think this is anything all that new.


Lee - 4/18/2018 at 10:21 AM

Going to the Tampa / Minnesota game Friday night. It will be my third game in three different stadiums in two weeks. Can't say I've ever done that before.


Stephen - 4/18/2018 at 04:15 PM

The bottom of the order did it (obviously Mookie too) -- a combined 7 hits in 13 AB, 5 runs, 5 RBI -- Sawx 10, Calif LA Angels 1 -- blister or no, phenom or no, we were gonna hit whoever was out there --

JBJ, 5-2-3-2
have a running friendly bet (ovr last 2-3 yrs or so) that Jackie in his career will win the triple crown w/a Carl-in-1967 type of season -- he has it in him -- already the consensus top OF in MLB

I've thought that for a long time. Often they have to reschedule games in a day night doubleheader anyway so why not just schedule a few ahead of time anyway? The MLB will still get two gates for the cash.
