NL Central Race Heats Up

19 posts in this topic

Well Tim, the battle for mediocracy continues into the stretch run. The Cards currently lead the division by .0004 winning percentage. What's that, a 1/25th game lead? smile.gif

My early call is the Cards will be back in front in a week based on scheduling. But if you don't close the deal right now, I like the Reds chances of taking the central. I think the Cards have better pitching, but the Reds appear hungrier.

Reds play the next 9 on the road vs contending teams SF, LA, SD

Cards play the next 9 at home vs CHC, FLA, PIT. Probably non-contending teams, now that the Cubs traded away Nefster P, "The Bunt King". Now isn't this a lot more fun than winning the division by 15 games Tim?

Go Cubbies, my favorite team this weekend!

Wow Tim, sounds like your frustrated with them. Reds have broken my heart many times, and they will probably do it again, but I just can't give up on them as long as they appear to be trying to win.

"Actually I am feeling a bit better spinner as my Browns topped the Bills 20-17"

Turning to the Cleveland Browns preseason schedule to raise your spirits? This could be far most desperate than I thought. We're here for you Tim. grin.gif

LMFAO! Spinner just saying that pleading my (Contact Us Please) off and dying after every pitch and lack of clutch perfomances and the team just not showing any life what - so- ever has gotten me mad.gif Walt Jockety as well as he said there were 2 or 3 Cardinals underperforming and unfortunately I know all 3 Edmonds, Isringhausen, Molina and I would mention Mulder as well. Well, I'm sticking with the reverse psychology so here it goes... I hope the Cards get there but kicked today mad.gif

Spinner,

Your Reds are keeping it interesting, but don't go buying any playoff tix while in the ME.

Tim,

You asked me to have them lay down, and so far they have. My only salvation has been watching the WSox slide into 3rd behind the Twins. Terrible to say, but this year I'm having more fun rooting against the Wsox than for the Cubs - pathetic!

So now you don't honestly believe that such a "powerful" lineup like the Cubs' (1 run in 2 games) can actually win the final of the series today, do you? And by the way, looks to me like it is the Mets' year, so don't blame Walt J - don't think there's anything he can do about that for the Cards.

I know exactly what you're saying Tim. The Reds nor the Cards deserve to play in October. I get aggravated with the Reds too. Griffey just watched a strike three pitch in the dirt sail past the catcher. Does he have time to advance to first? Probably, but we'll never know because he walked directly to the dugout instead of trying. What did I expect for $12 1/2 million. Same laziness from Adam Dunn sometimes.

Geno

Same here. I have really grown attached to the Twins this year. I have that same desire to see them knock the Chisox out of the playoffs. I don't expect it, but watch the race closely.

Who in the heck is Gary Bennett? He's a Cub killer and now since were finished with the Cubs he will go back to hitting .192. I'm predicting a Marlins sweep Spinner by the Marlins naturally got keep thing consistent. grin.gif I bet you can't wait for your Reds west road trip to end man you guys are getting killed out there. I see since the Red Sox don't have a prayer of getting back into the playoff race that there starters Ortiz and Ramirez are coasting through the rest of the season with aches in pains, why push it with the team tanking so bad and the Yankees on a roll...

Yes Tim, this may be all for the Reds. Losing the one run games we have been winning this year. Lohse finally pitched a bad game. (5 runs in only 5 IP). If he can't return to mediocrity, that will do it. Reds are a powerhitting machine that can't play small ball when we have to. Don't have the offense to overcome bad pitching. Our only playoff hope it to win the NL Central. I really never thought we could win the wildcard without .500 play on the west coast. But it was a fun year no matter how it ends. Unless we lose 25 straight of course. frown.gif

It's hard to find a team playing well right now. Didn't think I would say that about the AL Central at any time this year. I see two teams about ready for the playoffs, and they are both from NY.

In any event, this is day 363 of IraqSucksTour05/06. I'm moving West about 7,000 miles in a couple days. Be back to argue with you guys in about a week.

Isn't the Earth only 24,000 miles around? Guess you aren't even halfway around the Globe then?

You will be welcomed home I'm sure.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
