    2019 World Series

    To be fair they tattooed a few balls with 2 outs, just hit them right at fielders.

    Has it really been a great World Series though? Aside from Game One every other game has been a blowout. There's been one single lead change in five games. There's been very little drama.

    Just listened to the latest Statcast podcast and they had a segment about Anderson and Moncada and their BABIPs. Mentioned that they were among the highest in the history of the game (both at .403 coming into today) but then took a look at their expected BABIP based on Statcast and Anderson came out to .355 while Moncada was at .386. Said that Moncada could have the ability to sustain very high BABIPs going forward because he hits the ball so damn hard, is very fast and sprays the ball all over the field so he's impossible to shift.

    I actually got banned from there in September in 2005. It was when they were in that slump and about to lose that huge lead and someone posted "Man I hate this team right now" and I responded with "I know the feeling." Mods said we were both trolls and banned forever.

    Cubs thread 2k19

    I’ve never seen a baseball team be so night and day at home and on the road, they are unbeatable at Wrigley but look like they should be competing for a Top 5 pick on the road.

    Which current day players are HOF bound?

    I'd put Greinke on the fringe case list Votto as well

    Yeah inning is still going on if he wasn't sulking after hitting the popup.

    I don’t consider Bumgarner a top guy anymore.

    I wouldn’t be against a Hamels signing, he’s a fitness freak so the age thing might not be as much of a concern.

    Injuries are part of the game though. It's not like the Warriors haven't greatly benefited from injuries in every single one of their title runs (Kyrie/Love, Kawhi, Paul).

    ***Day 1 MLB Draft Thread***

    I understand wanting a higher ceiling pick but your expectations for the third pick are too high. To add on to what Balta just said, I looked at all the #3 picks since 1980. If we cut it off at 2014 since it's the most recent year a #3 pick has made the majors then 16 of the 35 picks have had 10 or more career fWAR. Of those 16, only 3 of those you can call stars (Manny Machado, Evan Longoria, and Matt Williams) with another 2 very good players in Troy Glaus and Bobby Witt. So there's basically only a 1 in 7 chance that the #3 pick becomes a very good player and stars only come along once a decade. Vaughn doesn't need to be a top ten bat in the league for the pick to be worth it.

    LOL a top 10 bat in baseball is like a 145 wRC+. You going to be disappointed if Vaughn is just a 140 wRC+ hitter?

    Also wRC+ in the minors isn't park adjusted, so a 170 in that park is likely higher.

    Sox and Stros 7:10 Central

    Yeah I remember actually betting on the Astros when they faced Chris Volstad and he ended up holding them to one run and the bullpen shut them down the rest of the way.
