    Only God Can Judge Judge

    Obviously an insane year but to put it into perspective his Wrc+ is 205, same as Ruth 1930, , McGwire 98, the Bagwell and Thomas strike year, and a deadball Cobb year all tied for 22nd best. The only names in the top 21 are Bonds, Ruth, Williams, Hornsby, Mantle, and Gehrig. The only other 200...

    Judge’s March Through 62 Homers

    I don’t even know who that is, but I do know that people have been cheating and using drugs since sports have been invented. I also know that one of the very best players in baseball got suspended for PEDs literally last week, so I’m pretty good which knowing that most of what I’ve ever seen is...

    Judge’s March Through 62 Homers

    If Judge hits 62 homeruns he is still behind Bonds, McGwire, and Sosa. It doesn’t really matter what anyone thinks. There are people in this country that think Trump is the President and he’s wearing a Joe Biden mask right now. Facts are facts and they always will be.

    Trade Deadline Gamethread 2022

    He’s 37 and they suck. He probably won’t be good next year. They could’ve turned him into something worth more than he is to them for the rest of this year.

    Good for Bard and terribly stupid for the Rockies. Why wouldn’t you trade him.

    Angels: Mike Trout is dealing with a rare back condition (costovertebral dysfunction at T5.”)

    You can argue all day that Griffey was more fun to watch than Trout, and while it may true it doesn’t mean it’s relevant or make him a better player. I will certainly remember to deduct points from his legacy, however, for not drafting trading for, or signing the modern incarnations of Alex...

    After Babe Ruth ... who?

    Too young for Boggs Clemens is the biggest asshole to ever do it but he wasn’t the same pitcher for the Yankees and his replacement pitched the greatest two seasons in history during Clemens’ first two seasons in New York Damon is my answer because the rivalry was at its height, he was still...

    Angels: Mike Trout is dealing with a rare back condition (costovertebral dysfunction at T5.”)

    We’ve been completely robbed of a player that had a legit shot at the record for position player WAR through 2019.

    HOF Induction Ceremony 2022 (Big Papi)

    You know Ortiz was a key player on teams that lost 93, 91, and 84 games right? These seasons happen when organizations fail and then change directions. Not that there went expectations for this years Red Sox but he wasn’t playing on World Series champs every year

    HOF Induction Ceremony 2022 (Big Papi)

    Pedro’s a Hall of Famer so I’m sure it doesn’t need mentioning he’ll be on the stage.

    Jarren Duran: Another Foray to Worcester

    Even Manny would’ve ran after that ball, and he’d be hitting .315/.410/.620 at the time. I’ve pretty forgiving when it comes to “hustling” plays but he legit quit on the play and then acted like a total asshole after the game.

    Would you trade Devers+ for Soto?

    Well the Nationals wouldn’t trade 2.5 years for Soto for a year and half of Devers+ so.

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    Raw extra base hits sure but it’s not like he doesn’t hit for a ton of power. Yearly slugging is .517, .543, .695 (Covid year), .534, and .497 this year so far. His ZIPS projection for the rest of the year is .294/.445/.556. He’s 23 with a lot of room to improve, and just up until this point in...

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    If you signed Manny after his age 23 season for 15 years you got: 136 games per year with a .316/.415/.593 line, 157 OPS+, 505 HR, and 65.8 WAR which is basically the HOF line in just 15 years, obviously with awful base running and defense but world historical production. Votto would...

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    They use to say that about Ted Williams and recently Joey Votto. You don’t mess with an elite talent’s approach when it turns into historical results and they are that meticulous.

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    Maybe in the end he doesn’t want to be in Washington but it’s totally unfair to look at the most similar young hitter to Ted Williams rejecting $29m AAV and being like he’s an arrogant asshole. Maybe he texts that 440 at 12 or 13 years, or they want him for 15 years then the total package needs...

    Shohei Ohtani now counts as two people, and other rules changes announced 3/31

    I kinda hate home and road splits and in this instance we’re talking about 115 innings on the road that looks like all comes down to hits and BABIP.

    April MLB Game Thread

    Shades of Manny in the 2003 ALCS, that pitch wasn’t all that close to Arenado.

    How do you feel about the past 20 years of John Henry and Tom Werner owning the team?

    It’s hard to argue with all the winning. I can deal with the last place seasons when they’re in title contention and winning otherwise. Personnel mistakes happen like Beltre, but that was a one year pillow deal and who knew he’d continue to be a Hall of Famer in Texas. The constant feeding of...
