    McCarver is an idiot. Did he really say that when the infield is yelling 3, that means throw the ball to first?

    They were the best offensive team of the last 20 years. Significantly better than the 2015 Jays.

    They don't have a choice with an odd number of teams in each league.

    That's how cable works. I probably only watch ~10% of the channels that I am forced to pay for just to get the channels that I do want. I long for the day where I can just get (and pay) for the...

    Sticky: Does Mattingly know what year it is? I don't...

    Does Mattingly know what year it is? I don't think he does as there is no rational reason for Rollins and Utley to be the #1 and #2 hitters in the lineup.

    Sure it is, there are too many unpredictable factors that occur for them to have real meaning. If the preseason predictions were the true performance level of a team, I would agree with you. They...

    Yes, they did. The Mets record listed is for 2007.

    The 6th place teams over the last 10 seasons. Not a single team at .500 or below. There were just a couple that were even close. Most had 86-90 wins, with one as high as 91 wins. These aren't...

    Do you have any data to actually back up the bolded portion? Adding a 6th would keep more teams in it longer as well. There isn't some magically gap between the 6th and 7th place team.

    Why is 5 perfect? It seems just as arbitrary as 4 teams or 6. I personally think 5 is a horrible number, an odd number of teams in a playoff is just a bad idea in general.

    Also, one game is...

    Fewer games will never happen. Baseball isn't going to give up that money.

    Did you even read my proposal or did you stop after I said add another team? A chase for a 6th spot wouldn't be any less exciting than for a 5th spot. Also, according to my proposal, the Pirates...

    It might tell you that if they were facing the same lineup, but they aren't. The best pitcher in baseball could have the worst offense supporting him while a mediocre pitcher could have the best...

    September call-ups can provide a boost to the pen on its own. With the 40-man roster full at the moment, I doubt they add anyone and risk losing someone.

    Cubs are on pace for 95 wins and a third place finish and road game in Pittsburgh against probably Cole. They picked a bad year to be good.

    Just hitting? Over the last 15 years, I wouldn't even have him in the top 5. Bonds, Pujols, Trout, Manny, and Votto are all better hitters.
