Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

I think one of my MLB dream scenarios would be a Stanton-type guy playing in Coors, posting an 80 HR season, and the sportstalk radio ****bois rush in to tag it with asterisks.

Tribe has won 13 games in September. There has been 12 days in September.

Dodgers have won more recently than the Indians so not sure what the fuss is all about

That would be amazing. Even a Trout. Gary Wise is right to point out the juiced ball. So many guys with 25ish HR this year having terrible seasons.

Mike Trout is 100% going to end up in Philly at some point.

Bryce needs to get Trout, Arenado and Kershaw on the phone and form a superteam like in the NBA

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

So Detroit gets their manager and catcher ejected and 2 pitches later the new catcher misses the ball and it drills the ump. Clearly a cross up but damn.

It was only a few years ago when Trout was paired with arguably the 2 best players in the game.


**** doesn't work out like that in baseball.

Re: MLB Season Thread 2017

Keep in mind Andrew Miller has not really been available for any of the Tribe's win streak

I want a Indians cubs world series again but cubs have little shot to get that far unless the offense suddenly starts clicking consistently

Yea, I didn't realize there were still another 16 games in the season left. For some reason I was thinking another week. My sense of time is warped b/c of the hurricane.

16 games? Psh, that is less than their winning streak. Seems like >50% chance that happens.

They have been resting quite a few people even over the last 21 games. Getting contributions from Urshela, Greg Allen and Mejia who just came up. But that will increase once they clinch. Magic number is like 3. Going to surely drop games considering what I imagine some upcoming line-ups to look like.

But their schedule is pretty weak. I wish they had more games against good opponents before their playoff series tbh.

This is a take I haven't seen before. Who do you have as a better overall player than Bonds?

I mean, he was an elite fielder and 50-sb baserunner. Add to that GOAT hitting and I'm not sure what Dominic was talking about. Probably forgot Barry's younger years.

A-Rod maybe? But if there's a list, it's a short one.

Assuming my cubbies luckbox into the DS, Schwarber doesn't make the 25 man, right?
