    There is a spot I got to after Kings games in LA that is up high and in a post hotel (Ritz)
    Perfect spot to wait out traffic and have a cocktail.
    I love a nice upscale bar with a great view for a few drinks.  (Can go to Oscars or some dive after.  ;) )

    Oh, it is. Can't believe it's taken their 5th time doing this for me to check them out at B&S. That place is awesome and to hear that much sound in such a small place is going to be ear splittingly awesome.

    have they ever had a schedule off day on a Friday before?  bizarre
  • The ‘08 team scored 799 runs...



    In other words this team needs:
    PITCHING
    PITCHING
    PITCHING
    PITCHING
    PITCHING
    PITCHING
    and some more PITCHING
    Definitely need pitching but isn’t scoring up around the league? I’m guessing due to the balls?

    I went to one of the shows last year at B&S which was great. Saw him earlier this year at Union Transfer which was also good. Will probably go to one of the shows this year.

    Rhys has been a huge disappointment this year.

    but he walks a lot :) - ain't so easy to hit 40 home runs and drive in over 100 runs a year like some around here used to argue about a certain 1st baseman with a big contract

    Over the course of that contract he never hit more than 25 home runs and never drove in 100

    Does kapler keep his job? I predict yes but I obviously think he shouldn’t. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets fired though obviously. 4th place in the division is absolutely brutal

    that wasn't the point. a lot of people argued it was easy to do because of the number of chances he got. it wasn't.

    and are you hoping the Yankees play the best teams in the playoffs again this year or do just want them to win?

    the Kapler issue is tough.  they have to re-up him if you are bringing him back but if you don't think he is going to here in 3 years they you shoudn't re-up him.  my guess is they sign him to an extension...then fire him midway through next season

    Well RBI is not an accurate representation of a player but we’ve gone around and around on that one 

    just want them to win this year that the Red Sox are involved. Would prefer Houston to lose in the DS, so different mindset.

    I have a tough time seeing them give him an extension after this season but they seem to be sticking by him
  • eeriepadaveeeriepadave West Chester, PAPosts: 31,595
    Officially eliminated from the playoffs. Offense pretty much struggled throughout the year, especially Rhys. Also injuries didn’t help and of course the continuing saga of Kapler’s decisions. 😕

  • Why what’s the problem with Maddon? Admittedly I don’t follow baseball managers very closely. So all I know about him is he’s been successful.

    I said a couple pages back that the only manager more insufferable than Kapler is Maddon.  The guy is the smartest guy in every room he's ever been in...just ask him.

    Also, he is incredibly overrated.  He has had some really good players right in their prime on his most successful teams.
  • Thar beats Kapler who is also insufferable, but the dumbest guy in the room.

    Kapler is gone. 2 out of 3 against the marlins for .500. No shot they’re keeping him

    Hey...improved on last year’s record by a game. Frankly I only had them about five or six games better than that anyway. 


    Harper, Nola, and Realmuto do make for a good nucleolus. They need to replace Kapler and get some pitching, but the ingredients are there for a team that can contend.
