  1. Maybe not another series, but I’d go for a Skinny Pete/Badger podcast.
  2. Strasburg opted out with 4/100 left. He provided surplus value in his three years.
  3. Flexor tendon, not UCL. At any rate, hope he comes back. Loved that guy.
  4. Why are we viewing his career in the past tense? Did he retire?
  5. IMO, they are moving on at the right time. They got a lot out of him.
  6. Where is everyone going? How much will they make? Will we hear about the “C” word this year?
  7. Heard a radio interview with Manfred before the game on Tuesday. He’s all for robo umps. Said that there is an updated version of the technology that they’ll roll out in the lower minors next season.
  8. Rockville? Who avoids Rockville? Weird.

    Jealous

    They made the right call on him in FA, and were lucky Desmond turned down their 9 figure offer.
  10. So what does this team’s window look like? I know they have Whitley as a prospect, but their other two starters are in their late 30s. I can’t see them being able to afford Cole especially when they have to take on a full season of Greinke’s salary and Altuve gets a $20M bump.
  11. If the Yankees signed Corbin, they win the WS imo.
  12. Maybe you already do this, but can you note “how acquired” with each entry? I can’t keep last year’s trades straight in my head.
  13. Reported. This is a family site.
  14. I’m going to shave, put on a suit, and show up in time. I’m going as a responsible employee. No one will recognize me. That, or a sexy chicken sandwich.
  15. That’s a good picture of the play. If Gurriel has his right foot on the bag and stretches out to meet the ball, the throw beats him.
  16. Hate to break it to you, Frobby, but half the bag is in fair territory...and so is the other half. I used to do drugs. I still do. But I used to too. — Mitch Hedberg
  17. Well, he turned down 7/210 from a World Series team. How much premium would this team need to pay?
  18. My memories of the World Series this decade and a half are not as vivid as they were in the 80s and 90s. Is Strasburg’s performance tonight the most iconic this decade? I remember Bumgarner having a great series, but I remember that being because of a great relief appearance on short rest. This has to rank up there with Johnson, Schilling, and Morris. What other ones am I not recollecting? Kind of remember Cliff Lee.
  19. So everyone on the Fox panel - ARod, Ortiz, Thomas, Smoltz are all wrong on this? Did they make the wrong call with Bellinger against Boston in last year’s World Series when they didn’t call interference? Exact same path. BTW, if Gurriel has his right foot on the bag and stretches, he catches it and Turner is out.
  20. Why is half the base in fair territory? How different was Turner’s path than the Astro Rendon threw out two innings later? If he beats the throw does he get called out?
  21. Should be four and still hitting.
  22. Haha. Umps on the take this series. Not even being subtle about it.
  23. Heard a radio interview with Manfred before the game tonight. He’s all for robo umps. Said that there is an updated version of the technology that they’ll roll out in the lower minors next season.
  24. Some language in here. But take a look at the part about the ump not calling strike three because Gomes started to go around the horn a little too early for the ump’s feelings. This doesn’t show the obvious missed strike three prior to the Correra homer.
