Re: Baez impresses Baez

What I love about this team is that the following players have the ability to carry the rest of the offense for week-long stretches:
Bryant
Baez
Rizzo
Schwarber
Russell
Contreras

Really takes the pressure off everybody. Nobody has to be the guy even though many would be for other teams.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

We went on vacation once together. My wife has been there many times for both vacations and mission trips. Before the diagnosis we had a trip scheduled for last week to checkout Aguadilla and Rincon and to look for houses. We were going to go to the Tuesday Indians/Twins game. As it turns out the po...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

About PR getting a baseball team. I could only see that if Puerto Rico has quite the rally as an island in the next 10-20 years. It’s a long story, but I actually think there are some scenarios where Puerto Rico could do just that. The wife and I were doing a ton of research into moving down there....

Re: Breaking Up Double Plays

I ask because I think I would have them just go straight in every time. And this is from a purely competitive standpoint. Not even talking about injuries. I think over the course of a season you’re likely to give the other team more free outs at first base for accidentally (or in the umpire’s judgem...

Re: Things are looking Grimm for Justin

Grimm definitely contributed to the NLDS win in 2015. So did Lackey. Probably contributed more to the 2015 NLDS win than the 2016 playoffs. https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/october-2015-javier-baez-hits-a-three-run-homer-off-of-john-lackey-in-picture-id596939120 i screamed loud enough for the w...

I got to be involved in upgrading the controls for the roof at Safeco Field this last week. Got to run the roof myself at one point. Was probably the coolest work experience I will ever have.

Re: World Series Swag Thread

I was in Cleveland for work recently and went into the gift shop to look at their Authentics store. You can check the date the little bottles of infield dirt were removed. I noticed like all of them were dates between the 2016 ALCS and World Series. The lady told me MLB had the infield dirt skimmed,...

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

I think you have more teams than normal that are probably outside their competitive windows this year. Couple that with multiple big spending teams apparently trying to get below the luxury tax, and a fairly underwhelming FA class overall followed by a very talented class.

Re: The Cardinals

From GRB: I think the Cubs have the rotation edge, we have the edge in lineup , and the pens are pushes going into the year. Ahead of adding Ozuna I would have said the lineups were pushes as well. I like that back of the napkin math at the end of the day. I guess I'm more looking at the additions ...
