Piazza's 1997 was his only season better than Posey's 2012 with the bat, but they were different eras in hitting and pitching. Posey still has time, but I wouldn't bet on him doing anything like that '97 season in today's pitching and drug testing environments.

Make sure you join a beer league. Some of the other ones are too stringent, too many try hards. Playing in a beer league is more laid back, good banter, and a good way to meet new people. Last year was the first time I didn't play, I'm playing again this summer.

>>64690499
Little league pitching sucks. There was always one lunatic trying to windup like Hideo Nomo, one kid who always jumped when he pitched, one tall fat kid who could throw 75 but couldn't get one in the strike zone to save his life, and another kid who hit 6 batters in a row and his coach/dad just said "It's alright, Jay, just follow through! It's okay buddy! Just follow through."
>>
>>64690548
>one tall fat kid who could throw 75 but couldn't get one in the strike zone to save his life

I never got that, but I was usually on teams with good kids and good coaches (thank fuck). But yeah, it is overrated.
>>
>>64690548
The best pitchers were the ones who just threw strikes and kept the defense involved. Those kids who racked up 10+ K's a game were ok but they always walked another 20 as well. And then your standing in the field bored as shit while runs keep getting walked in.

The rules that exist now that didn't exist back then send the only message to current players that they should need. Nobody kept the greenies out of Hank Aaron's body and nobody's using him as a public excuse to use them now.

are you a current player? who are you to speak for them? do you honestly think a current player is going to give a shit if bonds and clemens are in the hall or not? do you think if they are allowed in they will suddenly think its ok to roid up? oh and even if they did, good luck not testing positive or shit getting leaked sooner or later.

and the story on roids has already been told. its bad. every player has heard it.

Holy fuck I thought I was,the only one who did that. I also got a kick out of farting into water bottles in the locker room, quickly capping them and then uncapping and forcing the fart into the bsck of the fan in the meeting room and watching teammates reactions as the stench slowly made it to the other side of the room

Almost cleared the the whole room one time.

It was the single greatest achievement of my baseball career

Trout is missing the personality. Regardless of stats, Griffey was able to become a national sports hero in part thanks to his jubilant personality.

Trout has as much personality as a fish. He will never have the fame that Griffey did at his peak.

Do you two idiots understand the difference between gambling (either actual in Rose's case or perceived in Joe's case) and roiding yourself to do better in baseball.

Yeah both suck but they aren't the same thing, and even Joe's and Pete's cases are different as Rose didn't have the financial difficulties being a star player that Rose did.

Bonds and Roger are the worst of the roiders because they had talent, and Bonds did it because he's an ego driven fucking shit who cried cause his daddy didn't get enough alleged respect and Roger was going to flame out.

If they don't get in, they don't get in and you cunts get to deal with it.

I mean honestly, cuckees fans are a hilarious in the toil they put themselves through to deny deny deny.

The Red Sox are arguably the best team in the AL East, and are obvious World Series contenders whether you're willing to believe so are not.

Given that our team will be healthy come opening day (something it WASN'T all of last year), I expect us to have a rather explosive April as is custom for us at the beginning of the season.

Be sure to stock up on alcohol my dear cuckees degenerate. It will be a long, enduring season for you as you witness the Sox reclaim what has been rightfully been there's for the prior decade.

It's What We Do.

>>
>>64696971
I know where 90% of mine are, disorganized though.

But the problem was, our dads lamented using their Hank Aarons to make motorcycle sounds by clipping them to their bicycle spokes when they were little, once they grew up and saw how much they were worth. So they got us into collecting. Problem is supply and demand.

Everybody my age has all these boring, ugly ass fleer and donruss cards that aren't worth shit, then nor now, because everybody had em and kept em.

Whoever gets Dat Dude Dexter Fowler is gonna be happy. He's an underrated impact player. WAR put him at just over 2 this past year, but you just feel like his impact is greater. He actually had a significant slump with the Cubs and that's the only time that they sucked during the year. Whenever he was getting on base, he was helping the Cubs win.

He's also a good character. The guy gives zero problems, his teammates love him, and he's always smiling. He also interacts a shitton with the fans in the stands during the game.

Oh, and he had the best Cubs walk-up music.

Why don't we get sports broadcasters in baseball like that anymore? The first video, the announcers going insane, you just don't see that now in post season.

Even if the most exciting play happens they just talk like they're bored and uninterested and compliment the players tact for doing such a move while saying that whoever lets the play is known for doing such things.

Dan Haren's retirement baseball confessions:

@ithrow88 Jan 4
I went into almost every start the last few years thinking... How the hell am I gonna get these guys out

@ithrow88 Jan 4
There's was atleast 3-4 times I thought the team plane was gonna crash.

@ithrow88 Jan 4
I would count out the days about a month in advance to see if I was gonna pitch in Coors field.

@ithrow88 Jan 4
One of my favorite moment ever was hitting a homer off Chris carpenter. I took my time running the bases.

@ithrow88 Jan 4
I gave up so many homers cause I didn't wanna walk people. That and cause I threw 85 mph meatballs sometimes.

@ithrow88 Jan 4
I only hit like 5-7 people on purpose.

@ithrow88 Jan 4
Sometimes when the count was 3-1, I would just throw it down the middle and hope for the best. People pop up in batting practice right

There's a few more, including how he'd have to take medicine to not shit himself on days he pitched.

>People doubt that the yankees are the best at building bullpens

>20 years of bullpen performances, and 20 years of above-average bullpen performances. On a few occasions, the blue line threatens to dip below the gray line, but it never quite gets there. The differences have been consistently enormous since Girardi was hired for 2008 — the smallest difference has been +2.4 wins. But this isn’t just about Girardi. This is about the whole 20 years. The Yankee bullpen hasn’t struggled once. If you go with the simple-math expectation that a team has a 50% chance of having an above-average bullpen in a given year, then the chances of 20 consecutive years like this would be more slim than one in a million.
>>
>>64711507
>That is, if things were happening by chance. This isn’t by chance. The Yankees have had Rivera. They’ve had Girardi. They’ve had money! Over the two decades, the Yankee bullpen has averaged +5.8 WPA per year. The league has come in at +1.6, for a pro-Yankees annual difference of about +4.2 wins. The Yankees bullpen has dominated, and it’s dominated even the second-best bullpen over the selected window.
