Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

Keith Law kills me, gawd. He just cannot take even the slightest hint of criticism, even if it's not remotely close to a direct swipe. Chuck: Was David Bote on any scouts radar as any kind of a prospect? Sure, it’s a SSS, but you have to love how he plays the game and what he brings offensively and ...

Re: This is the thread where we talk about how awesome Kris Bryant is

it's kind of worrying that the only remedy we've heard suggested so far is for him to not play baseball. i'd almost feel better if they just said he's going to have surgery in the offseason. I'm long been picturing a heartwarming scene of him and Yu holding hands as they get wheeled into the operat...

Yeah no way would I vote for JD, even though he's having a great offensive year, but I could get behind Betts or Ramirez. Especially if this Tro...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Nightengale having a great night on Twitter. Apparently JD Martinez is an mvp finalist but Trout isn’t. i think i'm totally on board with this, and i might go a step further to make it really scorching and say he might not be top-5 for me at the moment did you know: Trout has worst clutch score in ...

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

What's the general take on Schwarber this season? Like, my dumb opinion would be that he seems...fine. And seemingly a decent number of people here were expecting/hoping for a breakout season for him. Obviously, having a 30 dong-mashing, 3 fWAR, LH platoon OF isn't a BAD thing...but what were some ...

i mean that quote was probably just the result of Bryant getting his first taste of mortality and trying to give a reporter a quote to work with but shoulder surgeries are not a joke. this isn't an ankle sprain.
