I would say I'm triggered, but the Dodgers aren't making the WS this year.

Baseball is a motherfucker.

You invest 4-8 years of your time watching your team slowly, methodically put  the pieces together to become a contender. Then they turn out the be the Toronto Raptors.

I just hope the White Sox are able to sign Machado or Harper some day. These negotiations have dragged on forever :maf

I am prepared for them trying to spin signing Moustakas as some major victory though...

Almost as bad is when you lose in the playoffs every single year, getting progressively farther and farther, but still losing every single year because the "best pitcher in the game" chokes every single year until he has a permanently injured back and is no longer the best pitcher in the game, and you realize that your championship window with this squad is probably shut forever.

The Astros series really broke something inside of me. Kershaw giving up that 4 run lead, and then the bullpen giving up another 4 run lead later in the game was just the most crushing thing ever. Last year sucked too, but it wasn't as bad.

The Mariners were getting pretty good, but the front office blew it fucking apart to rebuild. Again.

Get ready for more mediocrity in Seattle.

The Mariners were not that great and rode an extremely unsustainable streak of luck to a decent record that still wasn't enough to finish higher than third.

Even if they had signed Machado, Harper and Keuchel that team was not looking great.

Machado signs the biggest deal in history, but doesn't feel like an "all-time" talent.

Maybe I'm wrong, but he doesn't remind me of Albert Pujols, Arod or Manny Rameriz at their peak.

He's not on their level offensively at all, but he plays a prime defensive position (decently).

He was a complete non-factor in the World Series. Small sample size of course. But that's the most recent memory people have of him.

Machado is on track to be one of the top 40 players of all time.*

*if you trust in the WAR stat

I'm still pissed the White Sox tried to get cute with their contract and let him slip away. Cheap bastards. Nothing will change until Jerry Reinsdorf dies.

Baseball is OFFICIALLY back!

Pretty big opening day. Astros won, Dodgers did a 8 homer opening day record, Detroit almost had a perfect game.

Signed up for a free trial of MLB tv and I'm going to watch the STL vs OAK Japan replay so I can see Ichiro's final game.

Mlb.tv was free on the Bire  8)

Mildly excited about the White Sox. The starting pitching is still a dumpster fire, but their position player talent is showing a lot of promise and their veteran relievers have been good and could be a nice trade chip.

The Braves are the most frustrating fucking team. I guess we're part of the pack of teams that is refusing to sign Kimbrel until after the draft so we don't lose a draft pick, but Jesus. The games our shitty bullpen, which is our achilles heel, are blowing now count just as much.

Revenge for last years ALCS, a new record via Presley, and continuing a winning streak. Great game, but Sox are still competitive and threat shutting down the Astros offense like that for so long.

The Dodgers offense is a lot of fun.

Joc, Seager, Bellinger, Muncy, and Turner can all rake, and guys like Verdugo and Kike are no slouches either.

Lets talk about how damn competitive this season is.

American League standings are insane.

Astros - 30-15
Rays - 26-15
Twins - 28-15
Yankees - 26-16

National league

Cubs - 25-16
Brewers - 27-19
Dodgers  - 30-16

So competitive.

Baseball is so beautiful.

There are like 10 teams  though that are tanking. Tanking is one of those things that makes sense, but didnít really exist 10 years ago. When a third of the league does it though itís bad for the game. The success of tear down rebuilds like the Astros or Cubs ensured that a lot of teams will try the same thing and it kinda ruins the game. The Marlins or Orioles to name the worst offenders donít even try to field something resembling a major league team.

Orioles, Blue Jays, White Sox, Tigers, Royals, Rangers, Mariners, Marlins, Giants. and the DBacks to a lesser extent are all tanking.

After listing the tanking teams, looks like though the AL is much worse this year.

sea has been doing ok. Started with a nice head start from that two game win overseas in Japan against the A's and stayed number one in the AL west for a few weeks as the Astros got their bearings straight. They keep going up and down. Probably in a bad spot. It happens. They're not a bad team. They're just on a reallll bad losing treat. They're 3-7 of the past 10 games and that has really tarnished their record.

Dolphins get heat when they were good. But that hasn't been a while.

College sports, but people down in Florida love their college football teams, and the coaches sure get paid like in the pros.
