You know horrific contract aside, Joey Votto really doesn't get enough attention. Guy has a career .418 OBP. In 2012, played 111 games posted a 5.8 WAR and a .474 OBP. A lot of teams would love him if he wasn't signed to that awful contract till 2023.

Pirates are my World Series favorite unless the Dodgers get Hamels and Leake.

Gonna take it as far and say whatever team makes it to the postseason would get swept or win just 1 game.

Pirates/Cardinals vs Yanks/Royals is my prediction
post #42516 of 77538
I wanna see Yankees Astros in the ALDS. Feel like it could be a classic slugfest. But obviously WC will probably play the Royals.

I got Cardinals and Angels in the World Series with Cardinals winning the whole thing.

Said it after we played them a month ago. That 4 game series felt like the alds and it could go either way. Yanks have the offense and bullpen tho

Short series pitching like that is scary. Just like the Giants in 2010.

The Mets don't suck, they were preseason postseason sleeper picks as well and are performing up to par. Their offense sucks, but the team doesn't. I know it was early in the season, but they had a 10 game lead in the division...the Nats 26-5 run (best in franchise history) is the only reason they're in first.

Piazza should be inducted but you know how that is.

Mets are only 2 games back because their pitching has saved their behinds many times

That playoff drought between 2007-2011 was just so weird, with Piazza and Nomar playing for us

Just like how the Angels were gonna steamroll the Royals in the playoffs last year...the game is played for a reason. Anything can happen.

Mets will implode right before the post season and miss it.

Nats will implode in the post season.

Pirates will implode in the post season.

That's why I love Billy Beane. Always open to bringing in low risk outcasts who might find something.

And the Nats bullpen has **** the bed many times. We've blown at least eight 7th inning or later leads, if Rizzo doesn't do anything to address the bullpen we're ******.

I used to be cool with mets fans until 15 games into the year they came in talking about som "bow down and suck it" (literally) type of nonsense so now......they can't even have my pity no more. And MY ONLY point about degrom was he had to do it for more than 1 year for me to fully believe he was an ACE and not a fluke
Which I'm sure plenty of you said about Jake Arrietta. Which for a 26 year old rookie posting numbers FAR better than his track record or pedigree ever suggested he should is not unreasonable

Highly doubt that happens. Storen - Kimbrel would be a nice 8th/9th punch, though.

Chances are slim though. Padres are asking for Trea Turner in return, not likely

Basically the fact that we're not the best team has me getting my hopes up because it's always something like the 4th and 7th beat teams in the playoffs making the World Series lol
