PostSubject: Unofficial Baseball Thread   Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:37 am

I love football. I love the NFL, I love college football, and I love local high school football. My 6 year old looked at me last night and asked why I liked football so much. It isnt a simple answer, but his curiosity was put at ease but saying, "I just do."


That being said I love baseball. I write baseball articles, I will be on a baseball podcast soon, and I run multiple baseball dynasty leagues. I know Bern loves baseball as well, so I wanted to create an unofficial RW baseball thread. Not to talk about fantasy baseball, but real baseball. Baseball aficionados are more elite than Joe Flacco. Come join us.

The Twins win against KC Saturday night was pretty comical. I hardly watch baseball, but I caught the beginning of the game in the car and had to keep watching when I got home.

Great idea and count me in.

I LOVE baseball as well as fantasy baseball. I'm in four leagues, two on Scoresheet (AL Only and NL Only), one dynasty, and one redraft. I'm giving up my redraft league, so if anyone has an opening in a dynasty league, let me know.

I've been a Dodgers fan for about 45 years, so this is an exciting season.

As a Marlins fan I know your pain, but this year we have Staton ripping through the HRs which is fun to watch.

I'm looking to lock up the 1 seed this week in my keeper league. I think my team is absolutely stacked, but I've lost to 2 of the worst teams in the league over the past few weeks. Makes me question everything!

For those of you east coast fans that are still up.  Blue Jays/Red Sox are headed to the 19th inning as it's 1am over there.  surprised

I grew up a huge Mets fan. This year sucks. I used to work at Camden Yards so I took a liking to the Orioles as well and they are making run at the playoffs. I just don't really have the time to keep up with 162 games any more. I wish I did, but with the Mets being so bad this year (oh yeah and the addition of a kid), I haven't really kept up like in years past.

Seeing that little kid getting hit by that foul ball at Yankee Stadium yesterday was "heart-sinking" to watch. I know some teams extended their netting this season further down the foul line to the start of the dugout. But with lighter bats and stronger players hitting shots that rocket out over 110 mph I do believe the nets need to be extended to the end of the dugouts.

Yeah, seeing that yesterday made me want them. I've had my kids at so many games it made me sick seeing that.

Man that sounds terrible. I didn't see it and really don't want to. I think they should extend nets a bit further too. I always err on the side of caution.

You don't actually see it hit her.  But it's a screaming line drive, clocked at over 100mph.  It puts a knot in your stomach when you see the crowds reaction and they start waiving for help.  Plus, the players look pretty shaken up too.

Yeah, I hear you there. But they gave us a fun year. This is a rebuilding year, and they were on the brink of giving us playoff baseball. 2018 is going to be great, they are fun to watch, and the Crew will be rock solid.

Gross. That's the only team I would never root for. Fuck the Yankees!

I've been to Miller Park a few times and I've always rooted for the Brewers. (Never went to a Brewers/Twins game)

I've never liked the Twins. I really don't know why because it isnt the same dislike that I have for the Cubs or Cardinals. I hate Boston though, so for me it is pretty easy to cheer for NYY.

Need the Dodgers to win this on the road against their ex Ace. Diamondbacks play very well against the Dodgers so this is a must win. But then again, they all are must wins.

Yesterday, all I was hearing was "What's wrong with the Nationals?"  They say that the Nationals seem to plug holes that are needed, have bats, starting pitching, descent relievers, and descent defense. Yet they can't get out of the 1st round of the Playoffs.  Something was wrong with that team.  Even talk of replacing Dusty during the off-season.  It was like they already had the Nationals eliminated.  Today, they beat the Cubs 5-0 and have tied the series at 2-2.  Game #5 at home, I wouldn't bet against them. Being out west, I'll admit I don't watch them enough to know if there was reason to panic and blow up the team, or not.  But it sounded like it was inevitable as soon as they lost.

The Cubs/Nationals final should be a great one. I can't wait for Saturday night so I can sit back, have a few adult beverages and watch the Dodgers. I hope the Blue Crew show up to play, unlike the US Men's National soccer team.
