  1. I don't buy any of this - I'm pretty sure it would've come up in the investigation if there were anything to it - but I admit it'd be pretty darned entertaining if it turns out to be true. Guess I'm subconsciously rooting for mass chaos.
  2. Nah, but I admit that the thought/concern crossed my mind (however fleetingly) that the Astros might try to lure Elias and/or Sig back. Have to believe there's next to no chance of that happening, though.
  3. A bad team spending $20M annually for 4 years on a 32-y.o. SP who can't stay healthy seems...not very smart.
  4. 86. Missed all the Browns, no surprise there, but irrationally miffed that I missed a handful of ones from recent years (1999- ).
  5. If Mystique and Aura are joining them, count me in.
  6. I'm all in for a Netflix (or whatever streaming) series on AJ and his adjustment to life in Japan. I'd binge watch the heck out of that.
  7. This whole thing strikes me as a prime reason why the current MLB compensation structure should be demolished and replaced.
  8. Hopefully that extra cash will be enough to not DFA Villar. Listening to/reading ME's comments off and on so far this offseason, it sounds like we're going to be on a really tight budget. So every dollar helps, I guess.
  9. Interesting. I guess it makes sense since he's an original National, IINM. I thought that they may have had Davey Johnson do the honors for one of these games, as a quasi-representative for Frank, the franchise's 1st manager (although Davey certainly stands well on his own merit). Also thought there'd be an outside shot at Johnny Holliday, as he's affiliated with the team and is an institution down there.

    Not sure how it'll shake out, but in the end I'm going Nationals > Astros. Scherzer and Strasburg are the ultimate equalizers, akin to, I'd imagine, Johnson-Schilling in '01. Soto is amazing. And that lineup seems to do just enough when they need to do it. Admittedly, I'm almost trying to will this to happen just to see the inevitable head-to-head matchup of the ex-Tiger aces. Wow, that'd be epic.
  11. I've to confess, before opening the thread, I'd thought it was referring to Mancini and Mountcastle. In due time, perhaps... ☺️
  12. Honestly, I think they've as good a chance as anyone. A 3-stud rotation and an opportunistic lineup such as theirs can carry a team a long way in the postseason. The BP...well, maybe the former two can overcome/hide the latter. They remind me quite a bit of the '17-'18 Capitals: year after year after year of hype and high expectations only to wilt in the playoff spotlight, but once the pressure was relatively off that season, boom, it all came together. We'll see how the Nationals do now that they themselves are coming in under the radar for a change.
  13. This loss means - and perhaps some may consider this a silver lining as well - that we've clinched no worse than the 3rd pick, what with Miami's win last night. "Magic" number to lock in #2 is 2.
  14. Guy who got fired is unhappy about being fired. Not much to see here, IMO.
  15. Fine play by Hays. Obviously VGJR had no issue with the enthusiasm. In fact, if you look closely as the camera switched to Ynoa, you see VGJR running right past him, and it looked like they had a quick lighthearted exchange as well.
