That pitch he just hit out was either by him or a weak pop up last year. That was a Stanton style HR.

Re: The Cardinals

So, in retrospect, the end of their run as a great team in this incarnation is going to have been their playoff loss to the Cubs in 2015. Nice. The most fun part of that is how most of their fans have no idea how much of a paper tiger that team was because of the insane strand rate from their pitch...

Why do people do dumb things like schedule weddings in October? Don't they know that's when posteseason baseball occurs? I've skipped out on 2 weddings I should have been at due to Cubs postseason games, but I just found out one that I absolutely cannot miss is going to be Oct. 21. If scheduling ho...

Re: The Cardinals

Man, the Cardinals are just so bad. They suck. Their offense sucks. They have the worst defense in the league. Their bullpen sucks. Their rotation is really meh and is going to suck once a couple of their oft-injured starters become re-injured. They just suck. They might lose 90 games this year. An...

Re: 2017 Game Thread for teams that aren't the defending World Series Champions

Carlos Martinez' final line: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 8 BB, 11 K, 118-71 pitches strikes. So he threw 47 balls, 32 of them were on walks and he scattered 15 to the rest of the guys he faced. That is very strange. Second time in three starts with 115 or more pitches this season per Keith Law. What is Mathe...

Just ballpark, how many of those top 10 pitching selections were made with the idea of saving bonus dollars for other picks? Maybe half? Less?
