3. Nationals. I'd be really amusing if they won the WS without Strasburg.
Has anybody done a study of Batting averages after a number of pitches? Seems like when a guy battles for 7 or 8 pitches, he is more likely to get a hit. It may be bias in my mind, though
Lately I find myself rooting more for players than teams, especially since the Jays are never competitive enough to really have rivals. So:
What team doesn't have at least one or two players to root for
See I find myself going the other way. I generally am positive about most players but then each team seems to have one or two guys that piss me off, frequently for no good reason.
Anyone playing Bingo on MLB.com/gameday?
That at times will figure into my pet team, but generally if I look at a roster long enough I can find a player on any roster that I'm rooting for. Ichiro is of course one of them, but he is more than cancelled out by being on the same roster as Jeter and Teix. (I root for Arod also, especially for him to have a fantastic series)
I mean I am rooting for Dusty, regardless of all the crap we give him on here and any other baseball board(just like I will always root for the Cubs in the post season) What team doesn't have at least one or two players to root for? I guess the Giants have just Sandoval and Cain and that is about it, but every other team I can find 3+ guys I don't mind rooting for.
Didn't know about it, I'll probably check it out tomorrow.
I will add (because I know you're all dying to know) that other than the YAnkees I'm pretty cool with the other seven teams. It's a pretty likable group.
I would much rather see the Yanks win another World Series than the Cardinals. They've only won one since 2000. If this goes on much longer Yankee fans will start bellyaching about how tortured they are by constant playoff heartbreak. Do you want that to happen? Is that what you want?
If the TBS guys want to laud Jocketty for his acquisition of Rolen it seems they should at least acknowledge what Encarnacion has done for Toronto...
Jose, I was thinking exactly the same thing (#181). The only guy who has looked older than Rolen tonight is the carcas which used to be Aubrey Huff.
And Delmon Young.
If the TBS guys want to laud Jocketty for his acquisition of Rolen it seems they should at least acknowledge what Encarnacion has done for Toronto. It's not like he gave up chump change.
...and Zach Stewart!
...the Reds with Encarnacion somewhere on the roster, probably would be the best team in baseball without debate.
...it's not his fault that he was part of a terrible trade for one of my favorite players but...
Giants doing all they can to keep you out of the Bingo drawing
Good thinking, save Chapman for the 9th.....
In some respects this thread is making me wish for a Yankee / Cardinal series..... Cardinals are the only team that has faced the Yankees more then once in the post season with a winning record. (actually that should be world series...not sure about post season)
The last time I watched Chapman pitch was Game 2 against the Phillies in 2010. I'm sure he's very good and all, but...
You'd have to, wouldn't you?
I define it as series's won. :)
