Chris Johnson is a clown but the Marlins manager is an even bigger clown for not sticking up for his pitcher. Fernandez answering back w/ a home run was the dopest **** considering he's a pitcher. Spitting on 3rd base was :lol too.....def a fan of the kid now

Jo-Fer is slowly becoming one of my favorite pitchers/players in the league.

The response to Gattis was refreshing. Calm, cool, collected.

To nitpick, the only minor thing I didn't like was spitting on third but Johnson will get over it.

I have an early hunch the Sox will win the WS.

Anything can happen in baseball, but they have that it factor right now. Ball is rolling their way.

Giving up on your prediction the Rangers will win the division?

2-8 in last ten. I probably should, but I won't. Call me stubborn. Ebb and flow. Texas turnaround.

I'm a Cleveland fan, bro. Just admire Daniels' business model and FO approach.

Texas misses the bats of Cruz and Napoli too. I don't know what's wrong with Holland. No Harrison most of the season.

Have to win the next two against the A's. Sweep Houston. Figure you have to win at least 12 of the last 16 against Oakland, KC, Houston, Tampa, LAA.

Honestly don't see it, but I'm unwavering in my prediction. I'll admit I'm wrong when it doesn't happen.

All good. Truthfully not half as passionate about Cleveland baseball as I used to be.

Grew up on Sandy, Robbie, Thome, Vizquel, Matt Williams, Lofton, Manny, Justice.

Now I'm more into football, soccer, tennis. Starting to fade from college sports also.

Nats are 4.5 back of the Reds...won 18 of their last 23. Too bad they turned it on a little too late.

If around this time next week their only 2 games back I'd say they got a slight shot. They have to keep winning though.

Marlins could help your cause.

Wasted season for Giancarlo. Wish Texas landed him or J. Upton.

Those bastards probably will get Stanton this offseason. For a bucket of balls or something laugh.gif I could totally see Loria taking a deal without Profar at the center.

Daniels is salivating at that prospect.

You have an early pick for WS matchup?

Yanks/Dodgers - A-Rod walk off in the 9th in Game 7 is the homer pick.

A serious pick...I might go Boston/St. Louis with St. Louis in 5 or 6. I'm pretty confident in saying Atlanta and LA will flame out in the NLDS against Pitt and St. Louis. I cannot state enough how overrated Detroit is. I think Texas is in for another disappointment against Cleveland in the WC game. Oakland will beat Detroit in 4.

I'll probably be completely wrong though.
post #15708 of 77571
Sox/Cards here. Boston in 7. Largely depends on Ellsbury's health.

Tempted to make Oakland my AL pick.

Same here, I like Oakland's team this year.

I just need the Yanks to make the WC game. Give me something to root for. Don't want Mo to go out like this mean.gif they just can't seem to hold Boston down. You watch the last series and this series and you can see that Boston has not been THAT much better than the Yanks to close out the year.

All without Brett Anderson. Cespedes is liable to swing a hot bat in any series. WS MVP type streak. Hot or cold, nothing in between.

Boston has that magical it factor to me, intangible quality.

What's the word on Jeter, definitely returning?

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Definitely appreciated here. Feels like the A's never get the attention they deserve.

Brett had back spasms last night, he definitely is not someone to depend on going into the playoffs as a difference maker. We've been very lucky that Colon, Parker and Gray have been largely dependable and exceptionally good.

He's probably finished for this season unless they make a deep run, same for Brett. I've never been one to complain about injuries but they have just been stacked against us this year.
post #15713 of 77571
Donaldson, Lowrie, Crisp, Moss, Reddick, Young.

Someone will get hot and get the job done to help Cespedes.

Donaldson is one of the best third baseman in the AL. If it weren't for Miguel Cabrera, he could arguably be the best.

He's absolutely with them offensively, better numbers than Manny and Longoria this year. I would take him defensively over Beltre, too.

He's right. Donaldson has been better overall than everyone except Miggy and maybe Beltre.
post #15720 of 77571
The reason no one feels this way is because Donaldson plays on the west coast for a poor team, while Machado is in the middle of the AL East and makes great defensive plays.
