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.

    • I am very excited about him. All I’m saying is there is no way he is up in 2022 unless it’s to join a contender. 
    • 1). Teams did do that.  He didn’t exactly fare well against the best teams this year.  He may have gone through a lot of good teams in 2019 but that did have something to do with the league adjusting but there were also teams that fared well as well. 2) I don’t he has a great supporting cast but I think he has as good a supporting cast as someone like Brady had in his last few years in NE.  In other words, I think the supporting cast is good enough that an elite passer can win with them. 3) The chiefs aren’t more talented than the Ravens as an overall roster but Mahomes makes up for so much more. 4). More weapons and a better scheme could certainly make a world of difference for him...or maybe it won’t.  But I want to see those things before paying him.
    • He shouldn't start his decline until after the O's trade him in his arb 2 season.
    • I hope not that would be moronic, you are just wasting his prime  years as a catcher. You know then he wouldn't come up until May at age 25 at that point, so his first full season would be 26. 
    • I do think they should look to trade him at the deadline or next offseason if he has a bounceback year as he will be a free agent after 2022 and I don't think the O's will aim to be competitive until 2023. There is no way that they could get reasonable value at this point and the PR hit would be huge. Also it is better for him to get back to baseball here where he is comfortable and not have the added pressure of adjusting to a new team.
    • If we're punting 2022, getting Trey to a better team is a kindness. I certainly picture him here working off the rust this year, and hopefully with health being back to some kind of plus for a better 2022 team.   Kjerstad has some catching up to do, but it isn't inconceivable sometime NEXT summer RMC/Hays/Kjerstad/Santander/Diaz can all outplay him for that 5/9ths of the lineup. Like Cruz/Ozuna, you kind of imagine his market value floats some depending how NL DH turns out. Good Trey could get himself some numbers inheriting that Donaldson/Ozuna seat behind Acuna/Albies/Freeman, but then there's the whole getting non-tendered thing. I think this and Santander is more teams trying to squeeze the Rosario, Pederson and DuValls of the world.
    • I’m skeptical anything comes of this. The O’s are unlikely to just give him away yet the Braves are unlikely to give anything of value for a player coming off cancer. Probably just Braves seeing how desperate we are to cut costs.
