OFFNY

vs. ROYALS, 10/15 (A.L.C.S., Game Four)

Recommended Posts

I am actively rooting against them in the WS. Not because they beat us, but because I feel they have lacked class and I find much of their team unlikeable. Just hope it's the Giants now

Quite so. I was hoping for a well-fought series that real baseball fans would be able to enjoy, not a cakewalk for a bunch of douchebags and bandwagoneers.

Thank you all fellow game threaders (both those with positive and negative inclinations :D). It was a fun season, and y'all provided this dislocated O's fan someone besides my cat to talk to during the games. See you next year!

One of my best pals is a KC fan and he's been very classy in our discourse on Facebook and elsewhere. But I'm remaining mum on the rest of the postseason to him. I've really grown to dislike the showboating and chest beating of the Royals. I thought I could put my support behind them as I'm an AL guy. Basically, I don't like any of the teams left in it. Probably some likable Giants and Cardinals, but I'll just watch it for the baseball interest and not really pull for anyone. And if anything, I'll pull against KC very quietly.

It is interesting how so many people have jumped on the KC bandwagon. I clearly remember Yost chiding the fans for not supporting their team by showing up at the park when they were edging closer to Detroit in the AL Central a month or so ago.

Edited to add: Thanks to the O's for a wonderful season. It was thrilling.

Just revel in the upcoming sweep by the Giants or Cardinals.

Exactly what A's fans said the Angels would do, and then exactly what Angels fans said the O's would do.

Can't let all offseason go by with the last post being made by a Royal fan.

Absolutely. If they come back, I'll put words in their mouth.

Like I said earlier, the Royals are now on my permanent S-list.

This is the biggest sports disappointment of my lifetime that I can clearly remember (Super Bowl XVIII, while in my lifetime, is a bit hazy). I felt uneasy before the series began, and once they didn't bounce back in Game 2, I figured that was it, but I wanted to be wrong. Not even one MF-ing win. A bed-crapping for the ages. Simply ridiculous.

This tops '96 and '97 by far. I want nothing but pain for Kansas City and all their fans, and I want it never to end. I want them henceforth consigned to baseball hell, with no hope for returning.

Why not say how you really feel? Lol.

I don't know about you guys, but when my team loses, I hold a grudge--for a long time. Thus I hope the Royals get the crap kicked out of them in the World Series. None of this "Since we didn't win, I hope you guys do" crap. It ticked me off that so many people were behind K.C. because they haven't won it in a long time. Hello, they've won it more recently than we did!

Plus they play in a much easier division! We have to compete with Boston and NY's mammoth payroll, much more urgent for us.

    • MASN is also getting rid of several Nats announcers (or are they just studio guys?) and cutting the Nats pre and post-game shows, and they aren't happy about it. Perhaps they should negotiate with the Orioles for ownership of their tv rights.
    • I don't believe you have his 2021 and 2022 numbers correct.  His cap number for 2021 is still under his rookie contract and it's 3 million.   His cap number for 2022 is going to be ~21 million (the 5th year option is the amount of the transition tag for the prior year, which in 2021 is ~21 million for QBs.)  Other than that I agree with signing him through his tag years.  I'd almost certainly structure the contract so that he would have 1 additional year past the tag years, which would put him through his 2025 season.  He would be 28 at the end of that season and that would be plenty long enough to decide whether he's grown enough as a passer to negotiate an extension.    Mahomes is an anomaly, and I really don't think he's a good comp for Lamar, not the least of which being that he's played better in the playoffs, and his style of play is far more tried-and-true.  But he actually has no real cut years, because of the way they structured his contract (they have deferred guarantees, aka a portion of future money in the contract becomes guaranteed on a set date ever year.) No matter what year they cut him they will have a $50 million cap hit.  They are literally betting the farm on Mahomes.  Not that it's a bad bet or anything, but it's a petty massive commitment.   Watson is a much better comp, but I think that given Jackson's past performance, Jackson probably has the leverage to get an extra more-or-less guaranteed year.  They've both had some difficulties in the playoffs as well. I'd also argue that Deandre Hopkins is better than just about any receiver that's ever played for the Ravens.  Obviously not an issue for 2020, but it certainly was a nice crutch in the preceding seasons.
    • Agreed.  He looks AWFUL in the OF - because he is awful - not his body type - and not because of the one play where he injured himself trying to play the OF.  Even if he can run north/south, he's way too stiff with a poor throwing arm to become an adequate corner OFer.  He makes Marcell Ozuna look like a gold glover.    
    • You mean we don't all just read the boards and look at FG or Savant later.... I have no idea how I'm going to sit through three hours if I'm lucky enough to have a grade schooler who would abide sitting through three hours (here's Tanner Scott taking 36 seconds to throw this next pitch really really fast) in a few years.    But at least the team could be fair to middlin'.
    • I understand, they make cord-cutting complicated with all the bundling. We have Hulu through Spotify and I paid a discounted annual fee for Disney+. I have considered ESPN+ for Bundesliga soccer (go Dortmund!) which I got into when it was among the first sports back early on with the pandemic, but have yet to pull the trigger, probably will in the fall when college football is back to normal as well.
    • Also, MASN is developing an app.  Who else expects it to be, well, less than state of the art, and not available on a bunch of platforms?  I have a Roku smart TV, so fully expect it to not be available on Roku.  This is the same network that was broadcasting in standard definition like three years after everyone else went HD. Where's @RShack to tell us how huge of an investment it is to develop an app, and how it's unrealistic it is to expect any network to get this going in under 24 months?
