    HA, there's no way a former Astros coach is paying $300 mil for Correa. They know too much

    I'd rather have Yuli then reach for Haniger. Post season alone Yuli with 74 games, batting .260 with 36 RBIs.

    Sewald wouldn't have even got one strike on Alvarez before Alvarez sent it out of the park. With Ray, there was at least a chance he hit Alvarez and Bregman with pitches to put the game in Tucker's hands.

    And yes, this is hyperbole. Alvarez is the reason for the homer. Sewald is more responsible for the homer than Ray as he let Alvarez get to the plate. Giving up homers to Alvarez is not some uncommon occurrence.

    Coaches do not hire and fire players. All they get is input. They play or bench the players they get. That is unless the coach is wearing two hats.

    There are all kinds of fans at this time of year. It might be literally with some and a joke with others. I tend to go for the literal without some indication it was intended to be sarcasm.

    I think advancing makes it all big moot, especially after LAD, ATL, NYM, early exits.

    What about the fact that the Padres are looking amazing. After they went strong at the deadline? Got players like Bell and Soto while we got mancini and Vasquez.

    What adjustments do they make for the ALCS Roster? Or do they leave it as is?

    First it was Taylor Swift. Now it is Elton John getting canceled due the Astros being good at baseball. I'm surprised that they would even schedule MMP during playoff season.

    watching some MLB talking heads that for either the Yankees or the Guardians they should be concerned that while Altuve and Verlander played terribly as long term professionals they aren't going to stay bad.
