    All true. The biggest differentiator might be that while most pitching staffs grew tired as the season went on, ATL, at least in the playoffs, got better. Not lights-out but better than most if not...

    Weird post season in that no team has a lights out starter (or two) on a roll in anything close to a career year. LA lost Kershaw (not to mention Bauer), Scherzer has a dead arm, Buehler is over...

    They still may win. Atlanta and Boston are examples of why simply getting into the post season matters. You never know who will get hot/lucky/healthy in October. I can't stand any of the final four,...

    Baseball's schedule makes it incredibly difficult for a team to hire at a GM+ level and expect that team to be able to hire staff, manager, decide on FAs, negotiate with the likes of Conforto and...

    Agree that for some, the prospect of working for Cohen, a man with deep pockets and a desire to win soon in a major market, is appealing. For some, Sandy's presence might not be an issue, or if...

    Stroman is overly sensitive online and on the field. And he does some things online and on the field that don't align with my behavioral ideals (same goes for the owner, TBH). I can see why he rubs...

    If we don't bring back Stroman it should be because of his asking price and years vs. our valuation of him, not because he tweets provocative things. His passion, hustle and loyalty to his team is as...

    Like the Mets, I took August and September off from baaeball.

    Love this forum, but the slide had gotten to be too much for my already agitated state of mind.

    They need to do a lot in a...

    I hope he's not hurt, and the velocity drop is just from the cumulative toll of the season.

    I do not have evidence that explicitly says Rojas does or doesn't make out the lineup. Someone here suggested he should be fired for being responsible for the lineup in game 2. I said he doesn't make...

    Agree with all of this. Putting it entirely on Rojas was where I took exception. Will Rojas make out the lineup tomorrow? Perhaps. But if he does he will be given specific input regarding who should...

    Making out the lineup is one thing, and yes, that's a job that many managers still control. Who is available for a given game (like the second game of today's doubleheader) comes from the top.

    No. But it's common knowledge that many and likely most managers do not make out their lineup. They are "consulted" but do not have the freedoms that Leo Durocher and Billy Martin once had.

    Sandy or whoever the GM du jour is has the final say about who is available to play and what the actual lineup will be. They talk to trainers, analytics, Rojas, and take into account weather, travel,...

    On most teams the front office dictates who gets rested, who bats in what position, and who is available out of the pen on a given night. Most managers in 2021 then make in game moves. Louis Rojas is...

    Rojas doesn't make the lineup. But lets fire him for a lineup he didn't make, and for pulling Stroman after only 54 pitches. I mean 94. Jesus.

    By end of day we can be anywhere from 2.5 back to 5.5 back.

    Big spot for Stroman to go deep, get the win and keep things rolling so we can throw everyone if Megill falters in game 2

    Impressed that Lee regrouped and has been thriving after his emergency (premature, ill-fated) call up. My only concern watching his highlights, especially his HRs, is a pronounced uppercut.
