    Fun fact, this is the first championship won in Dodgers Chavez Ravine since 1963.

    Also, congrats to Brandon Crawford, Buster Posey, and Melancon for winning a championship in LA.

    If you like fun facts, you should listen to baseball radio, because they gotta fill the time with something.

    god i love the deadspin comment section when they talk abt barry

    Bonds had an OBP of .480 in his final season, his age-42 season, and not one single MLB club saw fit to retain his services.

    If he had returned to Major League Baseball, Bonds would have been within close range of several significant hitting milestones: needing just 65 hits to reach 3,000, 4 runs batted in to reach 2,000, and 38 home runs to reach 800. He would have needed 69 more runs scored to move past Rickey Henderson as the all-time runs champion, and 37 extra base hits to move past Hank Aaron as the all-time extra base hits champion

    jose reyes has a job.

    Julio Franco hit .300/.376/.444 in his age-42 season in 101 PAs, whiles Bonds hit .276/.480/.565 in his age-42 season in 477 PAs. That means Bonds was approximately 28% better than Franco in both OBP and SLG in almost 5x the plate appearances. For their careers, Franco was a .298/.365/.417 hitter while Bonds was a .298/.444/.607 hitter. That means Bonds was approximately 22% better in OBP and 46% better in SLG. In his age-48 season, Franco hit .222/.321/.289. That was a decline of 15% in OBP and a decline of 35% in SLG.

    Assuming the same rate of decline for Bonds and given their career numbers, if we extrapolate out Franco’s rate of decline for another four years to come up with Bonds’ expected age-52 seasons, we should expect Bonds to hit .325/.490/.630 with 78 HRs because the man put up a combined line of .349/.559/.809 with an average of 52 HRs per season during his age 36-39 seasons and prediction models do not apply to him.

    There is nothing in the world I’m more certain of than I am that Barry Bonds has the wrist and core strength to square up a 90+ mph fastball right now.

    Is fucking terrible.

    The Seattle one is so very non specific. Baseball did start for everybody.

    They must've wanted to join the WBC hype like people would just start doing #WBB too.

    This is a good debate. You could definitely say that if Jeter was on the Brewers, that he would just be remembered as a good player. But he did hit over .300 for his career and played 20 years at SS for the most recognized sports team in the world. He was also a dominant force in the postseason and had tremendous intangibles and leadership aura (yes, I made that up, but it's true).

    But I hate the Yankees and him, so I'm with ya. Fuck that dude.

    I think his dive into the stands to catch a foul ball against Boston in 2003 is one of the most overrated plays in sports history. It was nice, but Yankees fans acted like he saved children from a burning building.

    Did I say "attempt baseball"? Stupid me. I meant give up 7 runs in the 9th and lose via walk-off HR. Yeah, that's what to expect from this group of fucks. Every year.

    Tebow probably wont ever develop the vision to play Major League pitches in time but he's having a blast down in the minors. Crushing them left and right. Gives me something to smile about with the Giants off to such a poor start.

    How dare you sir...

    Tim Tebow is an American treasure! He can do anything he sets his mind to!

    Tim Tebow is an American treasure! He can do anything he sets his mind to!

    I'm rooting for him. He has a nice looking swing and his power is off the charts, like he mishits balls over the fence. It's just vision really, he's getting struck out a lot because he can't identify what he's swinging at half the time. That's to be expected but hey, makes for a nice story having a former quarterback belting homers.

    Tebow with enough time could theoretically make the majors. I mean, he's south of 30 barely but nothing says he can't play until mid or late 30s. The biggest issue I can see is that the older he gets the worse his already suspect outfielding will get. Fielding is important as everyone in this thread understands. It's a shame he plays for a National League team as he'd make a really good designated hitter down the track with the kind of power he has if he develops at a comparable rate to a prospect 10 years younger.
  • GreenwoodGreenwood Earth, the only true God Joined: Posts: 886
    Scouts say that if Tebow started in the minors at age 18-23, he'd be in the majors by now. But most of them think it's a little too late for him.

    I BELIEVE!!!
