2016 MLB Season

Post by S7 K1ll3rKlown on Tue Feb 23, 2016 3:14 pm

Ok, you have to admit, you knew it was coming. It's the time of year that Klown starts talking exclusively about baseball. The pitchers and catchers are reporting to the cactus league or grapefruit league fields and it's just about to start getting good!! bounce .

That being the case, I'd never want to leave you without the latest news if you haven't yet started to pay attention. The first thing I'll leave you with is the many, many changes this year:

last nugget of knowledge:
March 19, 1869-- The first openly all-professional baseball club is formed as The Cincinnati Red Stockings

So, Cubbies take it all in 2016? The NL will go thru Wrigley at a minimum.

The Cubs are 4-1 to win the World Series at the Westgate SuperBook. No other team has odds in the single digits. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros are next at 10-1, followed by the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox at 12-1. - according to ESPN.com

Actually (you know I'm a Yankees fan) but everything in my gut tells me with the pitching rotation and big bats they have the Detroit Tigers maybe the team to watch. If Miggie and Martinez (both Victor and JD) can stay healthy batting 3-4 with the addition of Upton.

Arrieta pitched a no-no and the Cubs straight stomped the the Reds 16-0.  And as if Arrieta wasn't sick enough last year, this year in 4 starts he's 4-0, 0.87 ERA with 26 SO and he's batting .273 with 1 HR.  Going into last year he's given up only 7 runs in 119-1/3 innings. It's definitely turning out to be a good season, but it's way too early so we'll have to see how things are going in a month or two.

Hoping the Red Sox at least get a wild card spot.
The Cubs on the other hand id like to see them get a World Series unless they're playing the Red Sox.

I'd be surprised if they don't go deep this year in the playoffs. They're moving along just fine, just need to see how the season wears on them and everyone else.

Just a tad bit early to worry about playoff spots and world series match-ups. How many games in the season are we now? 14-15?

As you know A LOT will change by then.

Cubs have 19 games done (14-5) and they already had one of their sluggers go down in the first couple games. Granted, Schwarber is the 3rd catcher and a backup platoon outfielder, but we have to see what will happen during the rest of the season.

So, after 52 2/3 innings at home, Arrieta finally gave up 1 run. While that didn't break the record of 54 innings without a run, it's still pretty impressive and his stuff is just on point.

yes, you guys look like world beaters right now. Just keep it up and please don't choke in the end.
I was pulling for you last year, and will again.

If ANYONE deserves it, the Cubs do at this point. We've got 18 division titles, 40 AL Pennants, and 27 World Championships. It won't hurt to watch the Cubbies get one. The Red Sox getting another? now that's not what I want to see-- LOL

I am loving the way the redsox are playing aside from the pitching for the most part they are looking great. I love the energy and excitement that all these guys have. With Ortiz playing like a man possessed it makes for an electric environment.

I've been pleasantly surprised at how the Mariners have done this year so far. We could use another SP. Losing Felix, even if he isn't his normal dominant self, has hurt. Bullpen looks great. We have led MLB in HR's off and on throughout the season.

Arieta is showing that he's not invincible, but during his "rough patch" the rest of the rotation has been stepping up. Good to see some depth with the Cubbies.

Arrieta is a blast to watch. Not quite as good as Kershaw, IMO, but a great pitcher. I love what the Cubs are doing this year. Well, the last few years actually. I'd probably have to consider them my second favorite team.

I was really bummed to see Schwarber go down this year. Not only because he was my starting catcher in fantasy baseball but paired with Bryant and those kids were going to hit a ton of bombs.

Any of you guys ever play OOTP? Short for Out Of The Park Baseball. Its an amazing text based baseball game I have played every version since version 2 and we are not on 17. So right around 15 years now.

The good thing about the Cubs depth is that as good a hitter as Schwarber can be, they've been able to shuffle people around so his loss isn't felt. And since they're hitting strong throughout the lineup, opposing pitcher have to pretty much pitch to everyone so all spots can be productive.

As for fantasy and the text game, I played fantasy one year like 8-10 years ago and it was way too much work. Fantasy football with 14-17 games is more my speed. And I've never heard of the text game.
