Re: #NotAllPitchers

lol i read the mets refugee thread where someone predicted Matz/DeGrom/Thor/Wheeler/Harvey could "easily" combine for 75 wins. Right now they're at 23. omg its actually funnier, the quote was "Harvey-Matz-Degrom-Noah" So they're actually at 20. Or 7 if you don't count DeGrom. La...

#ThatsMet I haven't been over to MR lately, do they still think the whole rotation is coming back completely healthy next year and Cespedes will be peak Bonds?

Re: Politics & Current Events

the real question is how conservative would the republican nominee have to be before you voted for Zuckerberg. If it was Zuckerberg vs a GWB clone, are you stuck with Zuck? he may want to steer clear of that slogan. That would be the worst i would have ever felt about voting for a democrat. There i...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

I can't stop watching this slide. It's hypnotic.

An underrated part is when he turns to the ump and says something -- I believe, "Safe!" -- to him while still sliding. You can see it pretty well in the gif Tim posted.

Yep. I'll always love the man for what he did in that game. 55 pitches on 2 days rest.

2.02 ERA in the playoffs. Cubs won 5 of 6 games he pitched in. 8 shutout innings to out-duel Cueto in the NLDS. He's a legend.
