Rays and the AL Central.

Dodgers, Reds, Marlins, Padres.

Nightmare scenario for Manfred.

 

Shame.

I'm rooting for the Padres but I think their pitching injuries will do them in.

Are they doing home games or are they going with the two neutral sites?

Home games for the top seeds in round 1. 

Neutral sites in Houston and Dallas for the NLDS and NLCS. 

Neutral sites in LA and SD for the ALDS and ALCS. 

World Series is in Dallas.

Home games this week.   Neutral sites for division and LCS rounds and WOrld Series.   I think the two Texas stadiums and maybe one in California?

The Brewers and the Astros are the first teams ever with a losing record to qualify for the post-season (they both finished at 29-31.)

 

The 1973 Mets had the worst record ever for a team to make it to the World Series (82-79 with 1 Rain-out.

The 2006 Cardinals had the worst record ever for a team to win the World Series (83-78 with 1 Rain-out.

George Breett and his 1981 teammates would disagree with this post.

While the Royals did qualify for the 1981 post-season with an overall losing record, they did not qualify based on that losing record.

They qualified by going 30-23 in the second half of the split-season, after having gone 20-30 in the first half.

That was also the season in which the Cincinnati Reds had the best overall record in the Major Leagues in the 2 combined split-seasons ........ but did not qualify for the postseason.

The Braves Reds series what I am most interested.  The Reds have Bauer and Gray 1-2 which is tough draw.  Bauer will try to pitch game 1 and 3 if it were up to him. The Braves have amazing offense so should be good matchup Reds starters vs the Braves power.  The Reds May have the worst offense to be in playoffs.

    • We have space for 15ish players and we have only talked about protecting around 7-10 guys...so yes, they easily have space. Of course, you do have to be able to field a ML team and dropping one of these kids off the 40 man exposes them in a way they don’t have to stay on the roster, like you do with the rule 5.  So, it could end up being riskier you put them on the 40 man now.     That being said, I think we have the room to make sure you don’t lose anyone you could regret.
    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better.
