Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I'm not usually a fan of moving the fences in just to generate more homers, but this was warranted. That place needed its own zip code, it was ridiculously huge and the fences were taller than most buildings.

I never got the drab green seats and fence either. Your colors are blue and orange (and fortunately no longer black), where does green enter the equation?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I dunno, I never liked all the multicolor uniforms all the teams have as "alternate" jerseys now. I always thought the home team should be in white and the road team in gray and the lettering, striping and what not is colored team appropriately.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I don't really think black should be used by any team where it isn't one of their primary colors. The Reds, for example, really need to drop the black highlights and go back to plain old red and white.

As for the multicolor alternate jerseys, I like most of them. The home team always in white and the road team always in gray gets dull after a while. I'd actually like to see more teams use a colored alternate jersey, but a lot of baseball fans and teams are very traditionalist, so I can understand why they don't do it.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Why do I have the bad feeling that the Braves season is running a direct parallel to last year?

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Braves have won 7 out of the last 12. Simply ran into a hot Milwaukee team. I expect to go 10-8 over the last 18 games. The Phillies are legitimately making a push, and that's what worries me.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

The Phillies' recent run has been pretty remarkable. I'm holding out hope that they can squeak in, but I don't really think it will happen. They needed this turn around to start a week or two earlier.

I've been bored, and made these for a Phillies message board I'm a member at:

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

God knows I hate the Phillies, but with 7 straight games against the Astros and Mets, they could easily go 7-0.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

You can take some solace in the fact that the Phillies have a losing record in Houston over the last few years. It doesn't seem to matter how bad the Astros are, the Phils struggle with them on the road. The rookie, Cloyd, pitches tonight on short rest, so I would expect them to go to the bullpen pretty early.

And the Mets have been surprisingly good against the Phillies this year, haven't they?

Yeah, I think they will hang on but I don't like a one and done playoff. This team needs to start swinging it. A right handed bat is an absolute must this off season. We should have some money freeing up too seeing as how Chipper and Lowe come off the books.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Yeah, I believe the Phillies have a losing record against the Mets this year. Which, I will say, really, really stings.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Don't worry, that was earlier when they thought they had a chance. After going to the game on Tuesday night, you should be able to take at least two.

It's easier when you just accept that the NL wild card race is essentially a cripple fight.
