    I don't get it.
    They won a record setting number of one run games. If we won as many one run games as them we would be in the playoffs too (or a couple games out).

    It tells me those storys about him being selfish are true when he is pretty much doing whatever he can for the Yankees and not do the same for us even if it helps the team.

    We better not attempt to sign him in the Off-season he has way to much power with this club.

    Also glad to see A-Fraud struggle keep striking out and being payed through the roof Lol.

    Would be awesome to see Detroit's defense cost them three straight against the A's

    I just meant talent wise. They're not even the third most talented team in that division, IMO.

    I don't understand it either. Me and my buddy were trying to name their rotation the other day and got two.

    I feel the same way about Oakland. Seems like they threw a bunch of scrubs and rooks together and pulled that season out of their ***.

    Not a fan of Detroit! Plus the A's overtook Texas while not allowing the Angels into the postseason.

    I'm happy for the A's for those reasons alone.

    Rooting for someone in your division is like banging your family member. It may sound like a good idea to some but you just don't do it.

    I wasn't really surprised much at all. I had the Giants and Tigers picked. The yanks isn't surprising and the Cards seem to do this yearly.

    I'm glad the Nats lost.

    That decision to sit Strasburg could have severely bit them in the ***.

    Your first playoff appearance and you sit your star. Awful idea.

    Yup, x2. Dumb.

    I remember ppl saying if we made the playoffs one yr to sit Pineda and I couldn't believe it. You can't go through life being scared or... You'll lose in the first rd of the playoffs.

    I think im one of the only ones that sees the logic to the strasburg sitting and respect their unwavering decision. They are thinking dynasty, not a 1 yr ride.

    When increasing your innings pitch by more that 20% in a season the % go drastically up (i believe like 80%), that you will suffer an arm injury the next year, its close to a given. On top of that you have the mark prior AND Kerry Wood 2003 example, dusty through caution to the wind and rode their young arms, robbed the Cubs of a potential dynasty, and 2 SURE FIRE HOF careers.

    Pitcher has the highest probablility for injury in sport, you have to have a program and stick to it when building them up to be 200inning guys, (especially if he is less than 2 years removed from TJ).... remember with felix, we had to monitor his innings against his will, now he is conditioned to go 240innings and doesnt have arm problems..... And the thing with stras, even if he were to feel something in his arm, no way hes saying anything, thats the kinda competitor he is, and extremely dangerous situation.

    I feel alone on this island of thinking.... that being said, if they woulda made the NLCS i woulda given him a bullpen session and see about working him up for a game 4 or 5 start, hes too good and i think 10-20 more innings with that much on the line makes sense... they still would be limiting the risk.... they can start his winter throwing program later ya know and pick up the cautious approach beginning of next season.
