    they played really well last year. In the off season some players left and werenít replaced with players of the same caliber, and some of the remaining didnít play as well

    That’s not the kind of hot take we’re used to in here.

    A bit of regression to the mean, a bit of losing Buster Posey. Last year, they were a hudge surprise, they were not expected to come close to 100+ wins, and were considered to be big overachievers. So this year they came back down to earth.

    Posey probably hit .304 last season because he took 2020 off. If he came back it’d likely have been closer to 2019 (.257) or 2018(.284). Both would still be an improvement, but not a 100+ game pace. The Giants didn’t replace the Darin Ruf that hit .271 for them in the lineup, etcetc

    Ha! I love being surrounded by Yankees fans. As promised hereís Judgeís first MLB at bat, recorded by my then 14 year old on his shitty trac-phone. The video is not great but if you go sound up the commentary is all time.

    Why the fuck can't MLB figure out broadcast times for the first round games yet? You know who is playing who and where. You have the TV times and stations already purchased/blocked off.

    What more is there to figure out assholes?

    Too bad the Giants fell so badly this season. It would have been kind of interesting if all four current and former NYC teams made it to the postseason.

    I love day baseball.

    I hate living 10 hours away from the field and they don’t announce game times until 48 hours before the series starts.

    Congrats Luis Arraez on the AL batting crown. The only Twin highlight this season.

    Jeff McNeil pulls the anti Ted Williams and rides the pine like a coward to protect the batting title.

    I canít imagine the baseball gods will look kindly on a team that soft. SD in 3.

    That's a shame he is an exciting player.

    maybe he could have played a few more games if he hit against lefties. all that sitting really messes with hamstrings.

    they went 10-28 against the dodgers and the padres - losing most after may and finished .500, that’s the season right there. Go .500 against them combined and they make the playoffs

    eh, he played the full second game of a double header yesterday, after they had been eliminated and after most of the starters had been pulled. Calling him a coward is a bit much. Man, there's a lot of butthurt about batting titles on this board.

    I always like to see how far off the hot takes were that the talking heads made back in spring training when the regular season wraps up.

    Parts of this were spot on, parts of this were an embarrassing whiff.

    What happened in addition to everything below going right, was that 17 guys made their big league debut this season, and contributed in meaningful ways. Of course, what pulled all this incredible season together and made it all possible, is the best manager in the game, Tito Francona.

    The most important day of the year was April 6 when they signed Jose Ramirez, the biggest deal in club history and the first time a player of his caliber explicitly chose to stay home and play for the team that gave him a shot. The next day Tito called him into his office and said he needs to play the game the way he does no matter what, because all these rookies will follow him.

    You know what Hosey did today in the 8th inning of a 9-2 blowout on their way to the 92nd win of the season? He hit a ball to center and ran his ass off to get a double when he could have just stopped at first and mailed it in, because that's how he plays, no matter what.

    What a season. I hope it continues for many more games.

    ROLL GUARDS.

    He'll probably finish second in both the MVP and Cy Young votes. Obviously you've got to give the MVP to Judge and I can't see Ohtani winning the Cy Young over Verlander with his microscopic 1.75 ERA (and on the best team in the league).
