can we please get a correct thread title
New thread on opening day has been the move for like 5 years
sure it has pal lol
Not an april fools joke
Announcing what they are reviewing would be good but I think everyone is OK with hand signals for the result.
as someone who watches the game to see the world’s best strike callers do their thing, I’m excited about this opportunity
seems like a dumb trade for the dodgers
That feels like a great trade for the White Sox. Both players are a little risky but I feel like I'd be willing to bet more on the value you can get out of Pollock than Kimbrel.
it fills a massive hole in the Sox lineup and fixes a mistake by the trade
Getting a major leaguer in return for Kimbrel is great as obviously we are in win now mode
White Sox should be pretty damn good this year
I feel for Pollock getting traded this close to the season, but I kinda love it
Like the trade for the sox
Lol cheap ass fucking Sox save $6 million on the Kimbrel trade and magically find the $50k that Gio wanted
The platoon bats for the Dodgers have been really strong in spring training. Like trading for Kimbrel and trusting our insane depth to fill in at RF. Also really happy Pollock went to a contender
With the money saved now the White Sox will go get Manea from the A’s watch
that massive hole will open back up sometime early to mid may
Do you think they’re going to make Vaughn available?
that really sucks but they have a ton of bullpen depth at least
This you Tobias?
God that’s cringe
the artwork of his wife & her boyfriend is a nice touch!
i was going to make this exact post.
Contenders just keep taking a chance on Kimbrel
Hitters batting behind Ohtani in the order hit 202/264/274 last season.
If Cohen were as rich as he claims to be, he’d have organ/bone farms for all the Mets “best” players
Looks like we’ll see a bunch of the billions theme song next year again since it’s not happening this year…. Again
now now now. the mets still have a 37 year old who couldn’t go in game 6 of the nlcs last year because his arm was dead. they’re fine
The Billions theme song, like the show itself, fucking sucks. Succession (I don’t know which team they’d be in any analogy) has a vastly superior intro.
I feel like we’re about to see a sea of pitcher injuries early in the season.
absolutely which means the rangers were just ahead of the game by not signing anyone but gray this year and rolling with a bunch of shit
Will be interested to see how many can travel to Toronto in late May. They've got some stupid and selfish dudes in that pen
rangers start in Toronto so they’ll get to be the first laughed at if they’re not vaxxed
guess semien is since he played in Toronto last year at least
Didn’t realize just how bad kimbrel had been since he was so good at the beginning of last year
At one time the best reliever in the game, Kimbrel signed a hefty free agent deal with the Chicago Cubs after the 2018 season, but struggled in his first two years with the Cubs, putting up ERAs of 6.53 and 5.28 in 2019 and 2020.
He was great again to start 2021, with a 0.49 ERA for the first four months, leading the ChiSox to acquire him for Codi Heuer and Nick Madrigal. Kimbrel had a 5.09 ERA and 4.56 FIP over the final two months for the Sox, however, then gave up 3 runs in 2 innings of work in three games in the ALDS against Houston. There
NL East: Mets
AL East: Rays
World Series Brewers over Boston
#Trust the process
Admittedly I have no fucking clue with the AL West and I really haven't followed the off-season that closely to suggest I know anything.
Divisions with the highest level of confidence being NL West, NL Central, AL Central
never bet on the angels or mariners
NL East: Mets
AL East: Rays
WC2: Red Sox
World Series White Sox over Dodgers
AL East - Yankees
Central - White sox
West - Astros
WC 1 - Twins
WC 2 - Jays
WC 3 - Rays somehow because they always make the playoffs
NL East - Braves
Central - Brewers
West - Dodgers
WC 1 - Padres
WC 2 - Phillies
WC 3 - SF
White Sox in 7 over the Padres because that would be a fun series
We would have at least 3 World Series in the last 15 years if baseball wasn’t a dumb sport where players get injuries from doing nothing
