    I find him fascinating. Immensely talented. But clearly not the sharpest guy

    For a reigning MVP to be playing so poorly on a team with juggernaut potential, it's like a bad car wreck I can't look away from

    And as a longtime Mookie fan (like since he was in the low levels of the minors) I am smug that he's so much better

    Looked like a great call to me :lovelove:
    He beat the throw. He was safe. Shouldn’t be out bc there was a half second he was off the bag where you have to zoom in Anas slow it down to kinda see that he was out (I couldn’t tell with 100% certainty that his foot wasn’t still on the bag)

    Won’t speak for anyone else, but it is fascinating to watch him this year struggle like he has coming off hours mvp season.

    Bellinger is just so streaky. And those streaks in either direction seem to last for months.

    Understood. It is more the manner of how Cornelius brings it up then the overall discussion of his streakiness. Nbd tho, was just curious.

    Same location just called and Mookie is arguing with the ump, which feels rare.

    In that stretch the were also no hit and blew 2 saves. When they do score runs they aren't getting much wpa per run

    Willson Contreras acting like a dick after he got hit in B9 of a 5-5 game

    Slamming his bat and glaring back at the Cleveland pitcher. Like come on man no one is trying to hit you in that spot and you brought your hands down into the zone and basically got yourself hit anyway

    Lol omg as further evidence of a lack of intent Wittgren plunks Maybin with the bases loaded to end it 6-5

    Bumgarner had a 8-1 lead to B5 before he gave up a 5 spot to give LAA new life

    His ERA is up over 8.00

    Dbacks now only up 8-7 in B6 after a RBI double by Simmons

    Year one of his contract not offering too much positive predictive value

    Then people will bitch because the top teams had to sit and lost their rhythm or something.

    I get the premise of expanding. The season is so long and too many markets have nothing to play for in August and September. From a business standpoint, it makes sense. I'm open to the idea of 12. 14 is really pushing it. 16 teams after a 162 game season is absurd.
