I was looking for deGrom run support stats and found this nugget.

 

Coming into today, deGrom had won 9 games.  His Wins Above Replacement is 9.6.  So a replacement-level pitcher wouldn't have been expected to win any games this year with the run support deGrom got.

Hope they end up playing a playoff for the division Monday.  Get October started off right.

Well, yesterday pretty much sucked.  My only hope is that Colorado is really tired after flying all over the country in the last 48 hours.

I am not a fan of the additional wild card.

Freeland was better. I am going to have a heart attack right now. The Rockies have to close this out.

 

Yeah, he was pretty incredible, especially with the circumstances.

 

I thought the Cubs were going to regret taking Lester out but I guess it worked out.

What do you mean by "additional wild card"?  You don't think there should be any wild card at all?

 

PS....last night sucked.  Cubs had all their chances to put it away and couldn't do it.  Oh well....season over.  Time to move on.

 

Now I'm wondering how long before they ink the deal with Harper.

There used to just be one wild card.  They would play the best division winner in a series.

 

Now they added a second wild card.  Those two teams play each other in one game.  Loser goes home.  Winner gets into the same series that the single wild card used to be in.

I meant the 5th team. I'd prefer to see them go back to a 4 team playoff.

Major League Baseball Teams Lost $93 Million This Season Because No One Is Going to Games

 

Quote

Major League Baseball attendance dropped 4 percent this year, continuing a steady decline for “America’s Pastime.” It’s the lowest league-wide attendance since 2003 and the largest single-season drop in a decade.

 

What does that mean for a team’s bottom line? Bloomberg News crunched some numbers to get a better understanding. While some clubs saw a jump in attendance, 17 of the 30 franchises sold fewer tickets than they did last year. Using average ticket prices from Team Marketing Report, that comes to about $93.7 million in lost ticket revenue in 2018.

 

Teams with the largest drops include the Miami Marlins (down $24.5 million) and the Toronto Blue Jays (down $22.9 million). (The Marlins recently changed the way they report attendance, which could account for part of the decline.) The defending-champion Houston Astros were a big winner, with a projected $23.2 million boost in sales.

Absolutely thrilled to see Goldy wearing the birds on the bat this upcoming season. Didn't give up too much for him and hopefully they can sign him to an extension.

Such a shame seeing a great player going to waste in StL

Whether or not it's a waste is TBD. Just glad the Cards made a deal that should improve them for next year.
