Christ are the Mariners frustrating. Fortunately everyone else in that race is mediocre as **** as well.

The Angels must be the worst playoff team of all time should they hold, they're basically the Phillies * the GOAT and Andrelton Simmons

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

It's so ****ing strange that they didn't crash and burn when the GOAT went down. They actually didn't miss a beat, W-L wise. Definitely a surprise to me, I thought they were going to be bottom 2-3 in the AL for sure.

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

Aaron Judge in the second half is slashing .161/.331/.333? Guess that .426 BABIP and .362 ISO from the first half weren't quite sustainable.

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

I'm not sure why Maddon hasnt learned how to pitch Lackey. Lackey goes average to slightly above average most starts until he hits the 5th inning and then he blows up every ****ing time. Maddon needs to get that bullpen ready in the 4th on his starts.

"Significant" bone bruise for Bro, but no ligament damage. They hope to have him back this season.

After some of the calls I've seen against the Dbacks recently, a couple of which I've posted in here that no one batted an eye at, the Cubs get no sympathy from me over a low strike call. Especially with the way they bitched about it to the media afterwards.

But yeah, the balls & strikes calls seem to be getting worse and worse.

Uh what? Lackey has won his last 6 starts, 4 of which he pitched into the 6th

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

LOL Jeets.

"Jeter believes in scouting, talent, heart and soul, and he will look to fill the Marlins roster with the same kind of winning player he was during his 20-year championship career with the Yankees. In doing so he will slow down the rush to analytics that is now being portrayed the answer to all of baseball’s questions."

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

And that is why it's impossible to take the Dbacks seriously this year.

Edit: 4 K's after 1 inning tho

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

chill ec...they've got the 3rd best record in the NL I think and have a team I'd prefer not to face in the playoffs if the cards somehow sneak in. You're too close to the situation lol
