  1. I'd be fine with just to see Kershaw get one. The Astros cheating ruined robbed him of one and furthered hurt his postseason legacy, as he was dominant in that series away from Houston.
  2. Trade was really dumb, but we got lucky that Edwin had a flukey good year and was able to be flipped for Scherzer.
  3. I've always thought it was because they grew up during the era when the belief was kids were to be seen and not heard.
  4. It's too bad we didn't sign Nick "JD Martinez" Castellanos long term. I'd love to be able to pencil his .225/.298/.486 slash lineup into the heart of our order for the next 5 years.
  5. There is value in seeing it across all AB. It is worse stranding a leadoff triple than a 2 out triple. Maybe find a weigh to weight it more accurately though.
  6. He's been in the minors since 2013. 2017 and 2019 were the only multi-HR years he had.
  7. In his first major league at bat, Alcantara hit his 10th professional home run.
  8. The only time Shep brings enthusiasm is when somebody hits a routine flyball.
  9. Mike Trout hit .220/.281/.390 in 135 PAs in his first season.
  10. Who was never traded? Don't get the comparison here.
  11. He's a light hitting OFer who derives most of his offensive value from his walk rate as he doesn't hit for a high average. Considering his strikeout rates, I wouldn't bet on him walking 12%+ against MLB pitchers who won't be afraid to pound the zone against a singles hitter.
  12. Mario was a textbook broadcaster, he brought no personality to the booth. Too robotic, the best announcers love the game and their job and that comes through. Mario was like a C level national broadcaster announcing every one of our games.
  13. I think he gets a pass for this one with the context of them talking about his HR yesterday as he came to the plate.
  14. It worked as intended for the owners.
  15. 25 point gap in OPS+ between JD and Nick. 24 point gap in OPS+ between Cabrera and Dunn.
  16. Adam Dunn was just a notch below Miguel Cabrera as a hitter then?
  17. Castellanos in his age 26-27 seasons: .285/.337/.495, 49 HRs, 120 OPS+ in 1343 PAs. JD Martinez in his age 26-27 seasons: .296/.350/.543, 61 HRs, 145 OPS+ in 1137 PAs. That's not a notch below, Castellanos isn't remotely close to JD if you compare by age. If Castellanos makes the same leap JD Martinez did, he'll reach the level JD was at prior to his leap.
  18. There is of course a 0% chance they try. The players will know they tested positive, making it impossible for MLB to keep a secret. They either keep cancelling Phillies games for two weeks, at which point everybody knows why. Or they let the Phillies play and place all the positives on the Covid DL.
  19. Great call by Henning on Castellanos killing the Tigers.
  20. A well hit ball to CF is an out, but back to back bloops tie it up. Gotta love baseball.
  21. In the Florida case it is because they were trying to under report the number of cases and deaths and the person refused.
  22. The org, and every person you interact with in your life, don't care if you don't waste time "preparing" for something that has literally no relevance on your ability to do your job.
