    The Official 2018 Major League Baseball Thread

    This is a guy (Harper) who is supposed to get a $400 million contract this offseason. In what world is a Dunn-like slash line makes a player worth that much money!?

    Mike Scioscia just managed an incredible game.

    Scioscia did a great job tonight. Heaney was in full control and the walk that he issued late in the game was a result of a very close pitch. In like every other instances, he would have taken Heaney out right there and went to the dreaded bullpen. On top of that, Pujols not being in the lineup tonight was also a great thing!

    Harper IS hitting like Adam Dunn this season, fool. Look at his slash line for once! Low batting average, strikeouts a lot, walks a lot, high OBP, and hits a lot of home runs.

    You already lost a long time ago when I used the Cano example.

    Trout's a much better player than Harper. Harper's still going to get that underserved $400 million contract despite most likely having an Adam Dunn-like slash line in his contract year. Oh, and I passed middle school easily.

    Just an opinion, yes, I think he's clean. And a much better player than the douche Harper, which isn't an opinion.

    I'm just using an example, bud. I never said Verlander was anyone's favorite player on here, so stop making up chit!

    And if someone had mocked Cano before he got suspended for 80 games for doing PEDs, you would have said the same thing if Cano was one of your favorite players. You would have look like an idiot now, wouldn't you? My point is that sometimes, things are too good to be true. Obviously, I never said that I knew Verlander is doing PEDs. You don't even know for sure 110% that Verlander is clean right now, either.

    You mean "the Verlander Drugs". And yes, I think Verlander is using it to improve his performance as a pitcher. A 35-year old pitcher pitching like Prime Pedro, sure.
  10. Angels won the World Series in Scioscia's third year with the team, not his first or second. It wasn't like they won anything significant just right after he was the manager of the team. Regardless of how you feel about him for what he has done as manager of the team, he's done a terrific job overall as manager of the Angels but these last few years hasn't been good . He no longer wants the team to play NL-like baseball even though he has a few guys who would no doubt fit that style of play. And on top of that, he doesn't fire these guys up when the team is struggling. Where's that leadership?

    Past 33 games for Halos starters

    Overall, the starting pitching has been a big surprise. It was debatable on how well Ohtani was going to do this season as a pitcher but we knew the stuff was there. Barria has been a great surprise, Skaggs and Heaney too up to this point. And when it comes to Richards, staying healthy AND pitching solid (but not great) baseball has been a big surprise. Pretty good starting rotation, so there is hope that this team can get hot and go on a long winning streak if the lineup starts hitting again like they did early on in the season. And if the bullpen improves, which is a must.

    Gritty Veterans?

    Well, you're like the one person who has been giving me all the thumbs down on my posts and it doesn't bug me even once. But when someone else does it to you, you have a problem. Hypocrite, dude!

    Contenders or Pretenders

    One thing that I have notice about Seattle is that they play well when they enter seasons with low expectations but don't play well when they enter seasons with high expectations. 2014, low expectations, almost 90 wins. 2015, high expectations, less than a .500 winning percentage. 2016, low expectations, almost 90 wins. 2017, high expectations, less than a .500 winning percentage. Looks like a team that thrives on low expetations.

    Active HOF players

    My sleeper pick for the Hall of Fame is Kluber. I feel like he can have 3-4 more great years and he doesn't have that many innings pitched under his belt for a guy who is kind of old (by MLB standards). So he should benefit in his late years more so than most other guys.

    Active HOF players

    Uh, no? Please, if guys like Orel and Schilling can't make the HOF, neither should Bumgarner. And Schilling was more dominant than Bumgarner at his peak. Had a lot of of outstanding seasons despite pitching in much tougher pitching environments than Bumgarner.
