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

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.
I haven't followed baseball closely for several years...do my Jays actually have a future?

Re: The Streets of San Francisco A-Rod Rental Car Robbery Whodunit

Why do the Yankees continue to invest everything into their bats while perpetually ignoring their mediocre pitching? Have they learned nothing from their last two years of shortcomings? All those home runs look cute in the regular season until you run into the best pitchers in the league during the playoffs. It's inexcusable that they got no starting pitcher before the trade deadline two weeks ago.

Not really. They have the sons of DANTE and VLAD, but those two won't be enough to do anything to the Sox and Yanks. If having a future is watching two potential Hall of Famers then yes, there is a future. Both are so young a lot can happen around them too so you never know.

I'm not sure what they could've done really. No one knew that the Dbacks would just give away Greinke...except the Stros. It also could've been one of those deals where the Dbacks said give me X and the Yanks said nah and the Dbacks refused to take anyone else but X.

At any rate you need multiple aces to contend with the Houston staff. It's pretty stupid. NYY's only ace has been hurt all year. So even if they had traded for some starters, they probably still lose to Houston, and they lost prospects for nothing. Yankees are still really young. They got quite a few years to complete the starting pitching.

And you just need to play good enough to get to October. Then if you happen to be playing your best you can win it since small samples rule October.

We are on the same wave length about the Astros. I'm just afraid that the Yankees will show out all season just to get struck out when it matters and have no answer for it.

That's likely. Pitching usually dominates the post season.

Yankees don't have terrible starters. They aren't elite, though Paxton's K rate is certainly elite, but they can potentially be good enough to win a World Series if the bats aren't totally shut down. Of course compare them to the Dodgers or the Astros, then yeah, it's not great lol.

Will be attending Thursday evening's contest between the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics in Oakland. Anyone in the Bay Area can meet me there. :posey2

The Cincinnati Reds' Aristides Aquino, the Houston Astros' Yordan Alvarez, and the San Francisco Giants' Mike Yastrzemski, all rookies, all had three-home-run games within a week of one another.

Yastrzemski's three-homer game occurred Friday evening against the Arizona Diamondbacks, in a thrilling 10-9 11-inning slug-fest which I had to watch the late-night replay of, having been at the San Francisco Castro Theatre to see A Band Apart and Pulp Fiction.

Now the Giants must battle the Chicago Cubs beginning this evening. The Cubs are 3.5 games ahead of San Francisco in the NL wildcard race.

Re: Yelli vs. Belli for NL MVP

Yelich has been slightly better offensively, but Bellinger's defense is superior. If you look at advanced metrics Bellinger is overall more valuable but not by too much. It's great to see such a close battle for MVP in the NL. The AL on the other hand has been all Trout. Truly the goat of this generation. Hopefully we can see this production continued from Yelich and Bellinger so that we get to have a serious discussion about who is the best currently.

Re: Yelli vs. Belli for NL MVP

Looks like the National League MVP race is not going down to the wire as Christian Yelich has sustained a fractured kneecap and is consequently out until 2020.

Cody Bellinger, despite being despicable for willingly playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, honestly deserves the MVP award in any event. He is the superior all-around player at this time, and the difference between the two players' offensive outputs is probably chiefly due to Yelich playing in one of the great bandboxes of Major League Baseball in a division which features not only Miller Park but also Wrigley Field in Chicago and Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Miller Park, Yelich's home, has long been regarded by both MLB players and park factor rankings-auteurs who perpetually analyze the respective qualities and conditions of the ball parks for hitting and pitching as the second-friendliest-to-hitters ball park in MLB behind only Colorado's Coors Field. Dodger Stadium was generally landing in the bottom-ten for "hitter-friendly" ball parks not long ago, and has surely not changed so much as to begin to compensate for the advantage Yelich possesses playing at Miller Park.

In news closer to home:

CUETO WORTH THE WAITO. :mark: :cheer :dance :dancingpenguin :woo :posey2 :bum :mark: :mark: :mark: :bow

Coming back from Tommy John Surgery Johnny Cueto authors five innings of shutout baseball versus the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team he has menaced for his entire career but for that one postseason game. :side:

Meeting him once upon a time on California and Cherry in San Francisco--three blocks from the location of one of the Zodiac serial killer's depraved murders--will remain a fine memory forever. :)

NFL Season 2019 - 2020 thoughts?

Seahawks fan from Australia. Very pleased with they're start.

Saints lose QB Brees for 4-6 weeks. That's a massive loss and could cost them a playoff spot.

Dolphins and Jets already have a red line through them.

Would be exciting to see if Dallas Cowboys build into a potentiol title contender.

Patriots look ominous but haven't faced a quality opponent yet.

Seahawks vs. Chiefs would be a cool superbowl. I think it'll be a Patriots vs. Packers superbowl.

Re: NFL Season 2019 - 2020 thoughts?

I'm a Steelers fan. The season is pretty much over now that Ben is out for the year. I'm curious to see how Rudolph plays because he's seen as the replacement. Roethlisberger isn't getting any younger and is starting to show his age. That being said, I have zero faith in my team as long as Tomlin and his staff are there. 3 playoff wins since 2010 isn't getting it done and the team looks worse every year. Its going to be harder for them to win the division with the way Baltimore looks and with Cleveland getting better. If they end up making the playoffs, it will end with Tomlin getting out-coached for the 100th time.

I'm also curious about the Fitzpatrick trade, considering the starting QB is out for the year. They got him at a good price, and they've proven that they cant draft DB's too.
