Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

^ They should just get rid of the damn Coliseum and have the Athletics and Raiders build separate stadia on the same site. They've got more than enough room. Only problem is, Lew Wolff (A's owner) doesn't want to stay in Oakland.

Actually, having been there myself, I can see his point, sort of...

Good game last night.

Made a TON better by the fact that a co-worker of mine was playing the ESPN Streak for the Cash thing, and won 50k by picking Tampa to win

Cheering for a Cleveland/Pittsburgh World Series here.

I'll tune out easily if it's left the usual suspects.
Boston vs. LA. Not up for this small market thing when I got no dog in the fight.
I'll turn it off. I'm not a fan of this whole Boston/Yankees centre of the universe thing nor am I a Puig fan.

As a long suffering Jays fan, I'd rather see Pirates/Indians fans be released of their burden.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I'd like to see Tampa finally get it done just because of how much respect I have for Joe Maddon. Braves would be nice for obvious reasons.

Gun to my head says the Cardinals beat the Red Sox in six.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

^ Hey, guess it's our turn to say "Just wait till next year."

I hope Girardi comes back, but if he doesn't, they should get Posada. Catchers really do make the best managers, after all.

Edit: ... And the Pirates win the NL Wild Card playoff. Nice job, Bucs!

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

We need an NLCS between the Braves and Pirates where in game 7 the Pirates score on a ninth inning walkoff single including "the slide."

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Looks like Salazar is dialed in tonight. Its nice to see a few new faces to the post season this year.

Looks like the Braves chose not to add Dan Uggla (most expensive player on the team) to the post season roster. Thank God.

What the hell just happened? First the ball hits the ground, then it doesn't?

Geez, I was hoping Tito wasn't gonna get tossed at a time like this...

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

That is the kind of umpiring I expect all season long. Talk about it and get it right. That is the home plate umpires call. Shouldn't have had to ask for help and I'm pretty sure that is what I saw Joe Maddon tell him.

I saw a story on ESPN today that said the Cubs might aggressively pursue Girardi, which might be a sign of higher expectations next year. Sveum wasn't really more than a placeholder while the team flounders for a bit.

High five to that. Maybe they'll be less errors too. Don't get me wrong, I like Uggs but he's not the same Uggs.

Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

I think the biggest factor in the Cubs decision was regression from some of the younger players they expect to be the corps of their rebuilding. I'm speaking specifically of Rizzo, Barney and of course Castro who was signed to a large contract.

They will go nowhere without building a starting rotation that can go farther than six innings. I like Wood and he seems like a nice piece to build around. Samardzija has flashes of dominance but suffers from the same emotional failings that Gio Gonzalez suffers from at times. When things don't go well he seems to get down and let things snowball.

I hope they can secure a manager like Girardi because I think we can all agree that the Cubs being competitive is really good for baseball.
