Seriously, what is it about the Phillies always having our number in the post season? Braves haven't scored a single run since this whole series started.

Well, Riley and the bats finally woke up, but we still have work to do.

Uh, yeah, don't even get me started on him. Apart from that comeback Monday night this series has been a nightmare for the Braves.

I went 4-for-4 in the first round, predicting all the teams who won. My prediction of an epic Braves/Dodgers NLCS match-up isn't looking too good. Oh well. Rooting for individual players now.

The TX-HOU NLCS should be good.

A great manager vs. the dumbest motherfucker that ever lived. I'm no fan of the Astros, but it looks like Dusty is the only thing that can beat them.

Rangers fans started chanting "we want Houston!" I remember when NYY fans did that. How'd that work out?

*edit

Holy shit! The 2020 Easy Mode Champs* just got swept. :lol:

I saw Twins fans doing that as well and right away I knew they'd lose. Wayyyyyyy too cocky for winning their first OPENING series in two decades.

Dusty's done. Rangers are looking legit. Now all we need is for the D-Backs to send Harper and Philly packing in game 7.

Even though the Rangers (and Rockies) were my favorite teams growing up, it's obviously a different team, so I'm rooting for Longo to finally get a (World Series) ring... and for Paul Sewald and Tommy Pham, the Vegas boys on the team.

Nice change of teams at least. Hopefully it goes 6 or 7 games.

On November 1st 2010. Bruce Bochy managed the SF Giants to a WS victory over the Texas Rangers. Their first ring in 52 years.

On November 1st 2023 Bruce Bochy managed the TX Rangers to a WS victory over the Arizona D'backs. Their first ring ( ever ) in 51 years.

God, I love baseball.


*edit

Just found another fun one.

Max Scherzer becomes the fourth pitcher in MLB history to have multiple Cy Youngs, multiple All-Star selections, multiple no-hitters, and multiple World Series championships.

Sandy Koufax, Justin Verlander, and Tim Lincecum are the only other pitchers to have done this.

Just like 2023 the 2010 Series ended in 5 games. Bochy also just became the third Manager to win the WS in both the American and National leagues. Sparky Anderson (1975-76 Cincinnati, 1984 Detroit) and Tony La Russa (1989 Oakland, 2006 and 2011 St. Louis) were the other two.

Rangers Pitcher Will Smith just made history. He became the first player to win 3 straight World Series with 3 different teams. He did it in 2021 with the Atlanta Braves. He then did it with the 2022 Houston Astros and now the 2023 Texas Rangers.

Gerrit Cole AL Cy Young.

Blake Snell NL Cy Young.

I'm not too impressed with Snell's selection. Dude rarely pitched past 5 innings. Don't get me wrong, he's an ace, but he was padding his stats...minus IP.

People here are all about this Ohtani to Jays rumour. Obviously I'm a skeptic.

Mets might be garbs again this season. I can always jump back in when they're good again :D

There are rumors ( big announcement coming soon! Ohtani is almost done with the paperwork! ) for every single team.

Both LAs, SF, CHC, TX, TOR, NYM...

No one knows. He stated himself that all meetings have to be confidential or he won't sign there.

No one knows who he has talked to yet and if they say they know, they're full of shit. :lol:

Soto traded to Yankees.

Ohtani announcement is supposedly coming later today. While Toronto or a team that's unexpected would be cool, if he's not a Dodger it will blow my mind. Remember, he chose to sign with the Angels so he wanted to be in SoCal. Now he has a "competitive" requirement and the team that Friedman/Zaidi built is going to be in the thick of it for a while.

Just under 24 hours late, but indeed Ohtani is a Dodger now.

10/700m.

Who didn't see this coming? Even the Canadians really knew he wasn't coming there.

Ohtani ( and he was going to offer it to any team he signed with ) is only getting paid 2m per year of his contract ( the full amount to be paid at the end ), so the team can spend more money on players.


I'm pretty sure Arod and the Red Sox tried to a big restructuring in 2003/4 that the Union stopped after Steinbrenner alerted them.

I'm also pretty sure the MLBPAA is going to have an issue with this and some people are speculating it's going to help cause a lockout when the contract negotiations resume. It's all up in the air at this point, but if a lockout happens over this it will be a long one.
