    They don't have room for Harper......maybe Machado if they dump Didi

    Much rather get Degrom or Synndegard

    Why have I wasted my life being a Mets fan? Seriously, if I had to do it all over, I would have never watched the 69 World Series and fell in love those loveable losers. So many things in life I can say If I knew then what I know now and that is surely one of them.

    Please. You guys had 86 as well. I'm still not over that series as a Stros fan. Epic NLCS

    Miguel Cabrera out the rest of the season...

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/...igers-remainder-season-ruptured-biceps-tendon

    Tiger's not only owe him for the rest of this season, but an additional $160 mil through 2023.

    As bad as Albert's contract is with the Angels... This monstrosity the Tiger's then GM saddled that team with... Horrible mismanagement.

    And it's not like this is the first long, expensive contract that has blown up in a team's face (looking at you Yankees, Red Sox, Ranger's & Marlins).

    That contract will strangle the Tiger's payroll for years.

    I was there for every game in Houston. It was an epic series. I was planning to kidnap Mike Scott if the Mets did not win game six.

    Funny reading the Detroit Tiger's forum and folks lamenting the fact the Tiger's wasted the careers of Verlander and Cabrara by not winning the World Series.

    How HOU got DET to pay 17m of Verlander's deal was the crime of the century

    We don't like the word "crime." It was just business.

    Baseball attendance is down 7% this season...

    https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2018/06/1...ttendance-continues-to-fall-gee-i-wonder-why/

    The article relates it to too many teams "tanking" and the great separation between the "Elite" and the also-rans.

    I think a lot of it simply has to do with it being a boring game at this point.

    Every at bat seems to end with either strikeout, walk or a homerun. Plays in the field are at a low. Stolen bases are few and far between.

    Oh and then there are the seemingly endless pitching changes.

    It's just not an entertaining game right now.

    The Astros are now within one game of their record of last season. Their 8 game winning streak allowed them to close that gap.

    As of right now this is a better team than last year's WS team.

    The Astros also took back first place in the ALW.

    While Houston is playing the rebuilding Royals 6 out of the next 9 games, the Mariners face the Red Sox, Yankees and Red Sox again.

    That's good, this way when the Yankees beat them in the playoffs there won't be any excuses.

    The Yankees could beat them... The Yankees have a terrific club.

    I think Houston is a wee bit better due to the starting staff.

    That being said the Yankees have to take care of business with Boston or they'll be in a one-game wild card battle that no team wants to be in.

    Indeed, plus the Yankees might need the home field advantage throughout the playoffs if they want to win the WS.
