2020 Playoff Picks

Not that I know of but teams that were barely over .500 have won championships or made the finals in all 3 other sports.   The Knicks in 99 were an 8th seed and made the finals,  the LA Kings were an 8 seed an won the Stanley Cup, the 6th seed(lowest in NFL) Giants won the Super Bowl, so while they weren't under 500 they were mediocre teams.  

I say that's not a good thing.  I want to see a regular season where good teams get rewarded and a post-season where good teams play good teams.  If you reward mediocrity, that's what you get.

0-0 in the 8th.  Predicting a Castellanos walkoff HR off Shane Greene.

3-5 so far.  he's been their best hitter, even though thats not saying much.

2021 Detroit Tiger, Trevor Bauer,

Gross.  He's about as likable as a kick to the nuts.

A-Rod didn't have a single sac bunt his last 18 years in the league yet he won't shut up about bunting.

Braves win it 1-0 in 13 after a Freeman single.   THey said during the broadcast that there were more Ks in that 1 game than there were the entire 76 World Series that of course the Reds were apart of.

With the right shoes, from the right person, not always a bad thing

Its the bad boy effect, isn't it?

There are times where he comes across really sharp and not just a guy throwing a ball around for a living.  And there are other times where I question whether the synapses are firing correctly.  He is a very polarizing player to me.

Clearly you have some sort of super power during a full moon.

He doesn't sound like a bad boy to me.  He sounds like a dork among jocks and I think it's amusing.

Cleveland has lost 8 straight playoff games. What a shame.

Has a below .500 team ever won those championships?    

The 1987 Twins had a pythag record of 79-83.
