Nitpicking, but 1-4 for the New York Yankees historically cannot be considered a toss-up with Babe Ruth in the equation. Ruth was just too great. The only player not named Willie Mays who could rightly be considered The Best Of All-Time. :nerd: :lol

Honestly, pouring over the numbers, only Yogi Berra and Derek Jeter are the obvious pick for being better than Mariano Rivera. Which speaks to simply how magnificent Rivera was as a relief pitcher, the greatest relief pitcher ever. However, Jeter is too great to dismiss and has to be there along with Yogi Berra. The fact that Rivera is even breathing down their necks is spellbinding, but nonetheless... It was a bad take to consider Rivera fifth-best for the Yankees.

Oh, and meanwhile...

LOVE LOVE LOVE that the GIANTS did it only for cash considerations! :woo :woo :woo No idea how they were able to swing that deal with @AryaDark;'s LOS ROJOS but they did. #InZaidiWeTrust :lol

Also, meant to say, "pouring over the numbers" before. :lmao

Cannot believe the GIANTS have amassed this record and are now in the NL wildcard race. Just shows, if you have a truly strong bullpen with decent-enough pitching, and your GM remakes your outfield from what was a radioactive wasteland only weeks ago, you have a chance to not be a complete embarrassment...?

They also rebuilt Sam Dyson and traded him. Not sure what they got but they got him for nothing so it doesn't matter really.

ok they got three prospects so this a great trade.

While my Yankees have a terrible starting rotation, and we got NOTHING at the deadline

Re: TRADES: Astros get Greinke so they just won the World Series

I had a feeling it was going to be a quiet deadline cause so few teams are truly completely out of it, but I was still surprized at how little movement some of the top teams did.

Oh, and Jays 4-0 with Bo in the lineup. Too many games now not to be a coincidence.

Bo Bichette doubled again tonight, his 9th straight game with a double, which hasn't happen since before 1900.

He's 21 and has played 11 MLB games.
