Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Now we're down to the would-be ace hunters, which range from "just missed" to "when facemelters go way wrong." We'll start with the biggest misses. The Detroit Tigers are in the cellar and have sold off every relevant piece. Miggy's hitting below .250. With Mr. I's passing, the road back to contention might take a while.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is the San Francisco Giants, who are having a year from hell, and are really old.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is my terrible Atlanta Braves. Things are looking somewhat up for us, though... Elite farm system, tons of intriguing arms (who currently walk way too many guys, but so have lots of pitchers at this point in their development), and an all-world MVP candidate first baseman in Freddie Freeman. Maybe flirt with .500 next year, and I'd solidly expect at least Wild Card contention by 2019.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Next we have the Toronto Blue Jays, who have some more tough decisions this offseason as they decide whether to rebuild or compete. They're only 10 games below .500, but last in the division.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is the New York Mets, who, either institutionally or bad variance, can't stay healthy. They're 6 games ahead of the Phillies for the race to the cellar in the NL East.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is the Texas Rangers, who sit 4.5 back from the 2nd wildcard in the AL.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

And our most painful incorrect is the Los Angeles Angels. They're 1.5 back of the wild card, and would have been an ace! I think Mike Trout will singlehandedly will them to the last spot over these last 2 weeks.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

We have two 8-point SHEEP answers for this question. The Cleveland Indians just clinched the division, just rattled off 22 straight wins and appear to be peaking at the right time.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our other 8-point SHEEP answer is the reigning champions, the subject of much consternation in the MLB thread, your Chicago Cubs. They lead the NL Central.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next-most popular correct was played by 7 people. The Los Angeles Dodgers were unbeatable, then they were terrible, and now they're still *okay*. I look forward to seeing Clayton Kershaw augmenting his playoff resume.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next correct was played by 5 contestants. The Washington Nationals basically never had a challenger in the NL East this season... but hopefully at least the Braves and Marlins are ascending.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Our next corrects are a pair of 2-point answers. After a painful rebuild, the Houston Astros have a very talented young core and should be good for a long time.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Also played by 2 people, we have the Colorado Rockies. PSA: Nolan Arenado is about to win the RBI crown for the 3rd straight year. I know lolRBI's and lolCoors and all... but I don't care how pointy your head is, 400 RBI's in 3 years is pretty amazing.

Re: MLB 2017 PEEHS

Question 18 closes with a lone ace.

After riding his homer team ALL SEASON, usually straight into the toilet, it warms my heart to award an ace of the Boston Red Sox to bware! He's on the way back to the top, just needs about 50 more questions and aces.
