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...

It's going to be a bit surreal seeing Manny Machado and Bryce Harper wearing the jerseys of their new teams...

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.

For us that's pretty good. I never said anything about contention.

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.

Biggest non inflation adjusted deal.

Also the economy of baseball is way different now.

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.

Harper signs a deal for 25M annually. White Sox didnít make an offer.

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.
