Re: Baseball History Thread

Besides the Cubs, when was the last time a team has made the LCS 3 years in a row? Cardinals 2011-2014 so 4 years. I think the Braves made it several times in a row in the 90's? Not including the 94 strike year. 1991 1992 1993 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 Edited, in Bull's link Not to say that their ru...

Re: Nats to hire Dave Martinez

People with the drive to do what Theo has done generally don't get into a "there's nothing more for me to accomplish why don't I just keep doing what I'm doing" state of mind. He also explicitly stated in his first press conference that after 10 years a change is good, hence the reason th...

Re: Nats to hire Dave Martinez

I don't get the "Theo will leave in a few years" stuff. Why would he do that? He left Boston to prove that what he accomplished in Boston wasn't a fluke or because of winning with the guys that were already there or whatever. He won a world series with the horsefeathering Chicago Cubs. Wh...

Re: Discuss NLDS vs. Dusty Baker's Nationals

Are we looking at an afternoon game for game 1 next Friday? I wonder if it's even possible for the Cubs to be slotted in the early game, but I would be kinda surprised. I also wonder if TBS has set time slots for its games, which on the opening playoff Friday last year, they had the 12:08 (TEX-TOR) ...

Wouldn't the Astros make a ton of sense? Low payroll, tons of cost controlled position players.
