    lol
    yahoo story says "giants star costs team with game winning home run"
    yes, the win cost sf of the first pick in next year's draft
    but giants "star"?
    the same "star" the red sox were willing to let go eating $49.8 million?
    the same "star" who hit .224/.263/.359 since going back to sf?
    amazing how these hacks base stardom on past accolades :smh:

    Braves GM John Coppolella has resigned amid an investigation and rumored complaints from within the organization and around the league that he was a total piece of shit. He rebuilt their system into one of the best in baseball and widely liked by fans for his candidness. This should be interesting to see unfold.

    I saw that was a rumor, but I thought that it already got shot down. What I have seen was that he was generally disliked by multiple levels within the org and outside. Maybe those were the complaints, that he handled the Int'l stuff like an ass.

    Based on some of the tweets out there from writers that covered the Braves, his org and other execs were not the only people to not enjoy him. Passan has an article coming out and I am really interested to read it.

    Three reasons the Dodgers can win the World Series
    by Ken Gurnick | MLB.com — 1 October 2017

    LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers fans have been waiting for a World Series since 1988. The team has had four owners, eight general managers and nine field managers since Rick Dempsey hoisted Orel Hershiser off the mound in Oakland. But not one Fall Classic appearance.

    So in addition to being long overdue, here are three reasons why the Dodgers can finally end that drought this year.

    1. They are the best team in baseball
    It's more than a title. Over a 162-game season, it's no fluke to have the best record. Although the Dodgers went into a month-long funk after pulling 21 games clear, to get there they showed a relentless determination to battle every at-bat of every inning. Citing unfinished business, closer Kenley Jansen said it's time for the Dodgers to prove how good they really are.

    "The two teams we've had the last two years are unbelievable," said Jansen, who has emerged as a team leader. "Our attitude to the game, unselfishness. [In] 2013, 2014, it was a lot of me, me type of guys. This group is united. I think it comes down to focus. We're very talented. We need to do the little things right. Stop doing dumb stuff. Then we'll be fine. We talk so much about this all year. Now it's time for us to think about it. This is our shot. We should think about this as our last shot. Don't take anything for granted. We've got to step up a notch. Do the little things right. Make pitches, have a purpose. If we do that, I believe we're better than all the other teams. That's my opinion. Doesn't mean you'll win. Still need to do all those things."

    2. They have Cody Bellinger
    Bellinger is a game changer, a difference maker. He is a weapon no previous Dodgers club possessed. The 23-year-old hits lefties as well as righties. He slugs home runs like no Dodgers rookie before him. Bellinger will even bunt to keep a shifting defense honest. Bellinger also might be as capable in the outfield as he is at first base, where he's a natural. And he wasn't on the club that came up short the previous four postseasons.

    3. They have Clayton Kershaw and Jansen
    OK, that's been no guarantee of October success. But you'd rather have the best starting pitcher of the last decade and the most consistent closer since Mariano Rivera than not, right? Kershaw is 4-7 with a 4.55 ERA in the postseason. Talk about unfinished business. Jansen showed last October that if the Dodgers can just get him the ball with a lead, he'll finish it off.

    I dunno. Only 3 reasons? And the first one is that they are the best baseball team?

    Inspired.

    Having Clayton in the post shouldn't be a reason why we can win the World Series.

    there's 100 reasons why we can, 100 more why we can't
    no disrespect to the cubs or nats, but the dbags scare me more than anyone else in the nl
    not saying that if we get past them it's smooth sailing
    but they're a formidable opponent
    have to find a way to get to ray/greinke and kersh/hill need to keep jd/goldschmidt down
    would much rather face the rocks tbh
