    He really shouldn’t, yet at least. The season he has had has actually been incredibly impressive, especially compared to the TJ guys that came before him. Orel made a great point the other night that year 1 is usually a lost cause and while Corey’s had a mediocre year for him, it was a great first step and a positive sign going forward. His power also may finally be coming back with 7 HR’s since the calendar flipped to August.

    Next year will be the real indicator for him. If he’s still hovering around these numbers, then it will be time to panic.

    Oh I’m sure. LA is a swear word here and the rest of California is not far behind. There’s respect for the other teams in the division, but nothing except for pure hatred for the Dodgers. Same goes for other sports as well. It would be a tough pill to swallow for them to see their former star in LA. Only way it happens is he demands LA only and is very vocal about it.

    He's been bad since October 2017 so it feels like an eternity since he could be trusted at the plate.
    But you are right. October 2017 was just one month 2018 through present is the result of injury.
    Hopefully he isn't injured all the time for the rest of his career. He's at back, elbow and hamstring issues already

    DoDi thinks Caleb might be a candidate for the postseason roster
    I do not trust him one bit, but no other lefty has emerged as an exceptional option, so a retooled curve ball and some luck might make him a worthwhile prayer.

    Mariano Rivera received the Presidential Medal of Freedom today.
    Why athletes get it, I have no clue.
    That aside...
    I'll bet if Trump cited his xFIP, SIERA, fWAR, and wMAGA+, @VRP would instantly rethink his entire life.

    I thought the same thing...and if anybody uses the fact that he was the only player unanimously voted into the HoF, that's buffler chips.
    Mo is a friend of Donald, and has been for a while. NY buddies, as it were.

    These medals have been passed out like party favors by our past two presidents. To say they've been devalued is an understatement.

    My favorite part of the ceremony was when he said “Don’t listen to the FAKE Fangraphs version of WAR that says LEE SMITH, a low energy loser, was the best closer of all time”

    Mariano, deserving or not, did tell a touching (homo) story about his early days in MLB that's worth a listen.

    Cubs may have lost Anthony Rizzo for some time. Sprained his ankle pretty bad. Will be in a walking boot for 5-7 days then the team will reassess. Everyone is different, but word is that this will eat into the playoffs.

    Mildly hilarious scenario: Brewers and Cubs skate into the PO’s with relatively easy schedule. Nats with the tougher schedule fall out of it and the wild card is between two injury depleted teams.

    Felipe Vazquez arrested :O https://t.co/HhJTsxGrkw

    charged with solicitation of a child, providing obscene material to minors.


    Florida authorities say Vazquez sent a message to a 15-year-old girl suggesting they would meet for sex after the season.

    He would have fit right in Hollywood.
    Missed opportunity gets worse.
