Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I so, so hate the "walk off" celebration. It is the stupidest celebration in all of sports. You act like you just won the World Series but really won one meaningless game and are still 14 games out of first and playing the sport like a bunch of little leaguers. (Not the passion of little leagues but the actual skill of playing)

I've always liked the walkoff celebrations. Its nice to see some sort of passion from your team no matter where you are in the standings.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Are we starting to lose site of the fact that sports are supposed to be fun? Why not have a team who just won on a hit have some fun while they are doing it. I look to the A's as a good example. Yeah they are a good team, but every time there is a walk off, that guy get's a pie to the face in celebration during the interview. Is it over the top? Yeah but it's still fun and it's a good morale booster for the team, and the fans love it. I watched that Costas clip yesterday and my first thought was the whole "Get off my lawn" thing he showed. If teams weren't allowed to celebrate an achievement, no matter how meaningless the game is, than sports would be incredibly boring.

Costas is one of the best in the business for sure but I think he takes himself a little too seriously sometimes.

Isn't this the same dolt who used his job as a sportscaster to spout off about gun control?

That walk off celebration annoyed me sure, but only because we should've won that game.

In reality, we "should've won that game" only because the Mets tried to hand it to us with that homage to the '62 team.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Not that I enjoyed watching Harvey mow down Braves today but damn he is fun to watch. If this Wheeler kid pans out then they might have a decent rotation in the next few years. If I'm the Mets I would address the bullpen in the off season though. Harvey pretty much has to cross his fingers every time he leaves the game.

One thing I did note about Wheeler in his first inning of work. He threw 20 pitches. All of them were fastballs. That was...interesting.

^^^ Both Harvey and Wheeler were quite impressive. Wright got his 1,500 hit.. Pretty good day for the Mets.

Now, it's time that the Bravos get the bats out their butts. Pardon my expression. It doesn't help that El Oso Blanco (Evan Gattis) just went on the 15-day DL. :-/

Matt Harvey had the guts to stand up to Jon Rauch. Linky

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Phillies Club President says he is happy when his General Manager makes correct decisions only 30% of the time

"God knows we're all trying to bat 1.000 on decision making," Montgomery told the Inquirer. "The reality is, I think we do better than the .300 standard in baseball."


While the world championship and the five NL East titles have ushered in a new generation of fans to Citizens Bank Park, plenty of people in this city still remember when .300 seemed like the benchmark upon which everybody in the organization was judged. They remember when Veterans Stadium was filled to better than 30 percent capacity. They remember when the Phillies routinely won better than 30 percent of their games. They remember when Brett Myers avoided a domestic violence arrest on better than 30 percent of his road trips. Back then, nobody would have been surprised to read that .300 was the standard by which the Phillies measured themselves.

In a shocking move, the Cubs release Carlos Marmol

Even odds someone will scoop him up and he'll probably post 20 saves the rest of the season. Amazing how players always do better when they have to sign a contract in the off season.

It's amazing how a lot of ex-Cubs do well somewhere else, though I'm not sure Marmol will be one of them.

Maybe there's a pitching coach somewhere that can have a positive effect on him.
