(I.E. I gauled me that Houston (and Milwaukee) was even allowed in the playoffs, then if that wasn't bad enough... they were 1 win away from the WS... they were below .500 on the season... it made the MLB regular season and playoffs into a JOKE...its no wonder so many tuned it out!)

    Personally... teams that can't win their division should be done! But MLB just sees $$$$... just like NHL, NBA and NFL... (worse with the NFL and the NFC East.. ugh talk about losers!)

    Oh, I know.. it's the way it is... but that don't mean I have to like it.. I much preferred the 2 division leagues of the 80's.. and can't stand the daily interleague play... (well, inter conference.. since it is daily.. they're not separate leagues anymore... ) I like the difference between the AL and NL.. (DH or no DH) Both styles have their advantages.. I like making pitchers hit meaning they have to be a complete player... rather than the 1 dimensional players they are in the DH leagues... but I also like the fact that in the AL, they can make pitching changes without worrying about whose going to hit when for the pitchers spot..but it does mean you need a deeper bench... which means the backup guys get into more games in the NL... Both have advantages.. and I like seeing those.. now.. you can see the pitchers hitting going away sooner... which will be a sad day for baseball in america...

    That's your opinion, not a FACT. You have no clue what they would do.

I was not alive yet... and I've heard that Brooklyn had yet to forgive the Dodgers.... just rude how baseball let that happen... The Dodgers deserve their warm weather fans they have (word I've heard.. they show up late.. stick around just long enough to be seen.. then leave early... and that's when their winning... ).. and the Giants not getting any championships for 4 decades after the move...

    People.. you want your favorite teams to NOT move... piece of advice... MAKE THEM OWN THEIR VENUES... that means it's like trying to move an Oak tree without killing it... They love renting because they can pack up and move with little notice (see the Colts, Dodgers, Giants, etc..)

    I guess this means.. I'm a puriest in many ways... and I can live with that tag... just because that's they "way it is" doesn't mean "I have to like it!"... I don't mind the expansion.. or the parity.. but watering down the playoffs... YUCK!
    The Dodgers and Giants. A stake thru the heart of all Brooklyn fans. My mom was a diehard. She cursed O'Malley until her death a few years back. Never forgave him. (The silver lining, the move prompted my mother to acquiesce and they became Yankees season ticket holders. My Fathers team. We held them until the new stadium opened.)

    Ironically, Dodgers were a very successful team in the 50's (they moved in 1957). They regularly packed Ebbets field and all indications are they were very profitable. LA's promise of a new stadium was just too much for ownership to pass on.

    I have also heard it was a package deal the MLB ownership committee presented, either they both go or neither. NYC got hammered in that deal.

    Ain't nothing wrong with being a purist, not many of us left!

    What, if any role do you ascribe Astros electronic surveillance in those wins?

    As a corollary, is PED use cheating?

    That is true. But it is not a guarantee of fact that it would have happened this year.

    I am impressed you actually used the word fact properly and wrote one at the same time

    Well being that the Astros scored more than 4 runs just once in their 4 wins on the 2017 alcs , I would say they kept their sign stealing to a minimum . Especially when the yanks didn’t hit at all on the road in that series too. As for the 2019 alcs , I am not sure if they cheated in the first 5 games since the Astros took two of three at Yankee stadium . But I do think they likely cheated in game 6 .

    OMG... just go back and watch all of the games between the Yanks and the Red Sox when Pedro was on the mound... We never had any pitcher during that time who was as good as Pedro... but against the Yanks, his numbers were pedestrain (against the rest of MLB... Herculean)... Yet the Yanks often beat Pedro.... then again.. it's the AL.. Pitchers don't pitch against each other.... you pitch against the other pitchers teammates and vice versa...

    True... but at the same time, the price tag for that team has finally come due... they are having to watch many of the top players (Cole, Springer and others) walk because they've become unaffordable to them... and more are set to walk in the next few years.... The Astros window is clearly closing fast.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.
