Don’t know much about him, other then he was with the Rangers last three seasons. 

 

Was he the Rangers' hitting coach? It seems that the Rangers underachieved the last several years.

I guess 9 Rangers hit 17 or more HR's last season which is good. I really don't know much about him. I was surprised to hear we hired someone so quickly.

Didn't the Cubs hit a lot of HRs? It seems that towards the end of the season the Cubs did not hit in the clutch. But looking at it from an outsider, it seemed like the Cubs had no problem hitting HRs.

No, the Cubs were 22nd in the league out of of 30 teams hitting HR's. They only had 167. The Yankees led the league with 267 hitting 100 more by comparison. The Brewers hit 218.

From afar it seemed like they hit lots. How many did the Mets hit?

Rangers hit 194  HR's.

 

That is more than the Cubs and Mets, but that is expected given that the Rangers used designated hitters instead of pitchers to hit in nearly every game. AL teams should hit more HRs than NL teams.

Dodgers are up 5-1 in the 8th Inning, a win here by LA puts the Brewers on the brink of elimination :banana:. Brewers had all of those lucky wins during the season for maybe nothing if they lose this series.

Yeah I can't wait to see them get eliminated, their fanbase deserves it. Some People think the Cubs fanbase is bad, some of the Posts I have read throughout the year by the Brewers fanbase are the worst. Their fanbase doesn't respect other teams at all. They trash the Cubs and the Cubs had went to 3 straight NLCS's and won a World Series recently. They were trashing the Dodgers when they took a 2-1 lead. Can't wait to watch these clowns fail. Their hero Yelich has been an absolute flop in the NLCS too. Makes me want to sign up with ESPN again just to rub it in their faces the fact they have ZERO to show for their good season and numerous lucky wins. Cubs have that Ring baby!

Boston now up 3-1 over the Astros. It's tough to Repeat in Baseball. No team has Repeated since the 2000 Yankees. We could be looking at a Red Sox vs Dodgers WS. Boston and LA, sounds like a Basketball thing to me :funny:

@Jules congrats on the Red Sox winning the AL Pennant. They beat a great team in the Astros. This Red Sox team looks every bit as great as the Cubs looked in 2016. It's their WS to lose IMO with HFA.

 

Thanks. This has been pretty exciting. My other half is just on cloud nine and thinks I am bringing good luck since we got married in May. lmao 

 

Honestly kinda amazing too, never thought I would be a baseball fan but this was fascinating. Sox lost game 1 and then ripped off FOUR in a row vs. a great Astros team including even Price getting a win. 

 

I said after the Yankees series I got the tingles. And after game 4.......can't tell me this isn't a sign it's your year.

 

 

Just amazing.

 

But really this Red Sox team had it all season. IMO they deserve it.

Yeah eventhough Football and Basketball are more entertaining to watch, there is nothing like Playoff Baseball. The Cubs aren't even in it and I still watch and keep up with it. The Regular Season is just too long for the casual fan but once the Playoffs start the intense drama begins.

Damn Brewers won, YUCK! Looks like a Game 7 Saturday night. If the Dodgers lose Game 7, I will start to believe they are a team that is simply jinxed with Kershaw's group.

Yeah the BrewCrew's dream season came crumbling to an end last night. What a shame. Lets look at how the Cards, Cubs, and Brewers have done this whole decade (from 2010-2018):

Cards = 2 WS Appearances (2011)/(2013), 1 Championship (2011)

Cubs = 1 WS Appearance (2016), 1 Championship (2016)

Brewers = 0 WS Appearances, 0 Championships

 

-I guess the Brewers can hang their Division Championship banner up for 2018 :funny:. They have that going for them. 

 

-On to the World Series, I will watch it now. I have a weird feeling that the Dodgers are going to upset the Red Sox. Sox won 108 games and it looks deceivingly like the Sox should win this in 5 or 6 after beating the Astros 4-1. Because of how the Dodgers lost last season in 7 to the Astros, the Dodgers look like a real hungry team though. The Dodgers have been on the cusp of winning it all for a while and Kershaw knows his time is running out to get a Ring. The Dodgers organization haven't won a WS since 1988, Sox just won one in 2013.

-My pick, Dodgers in 7.

That is right! Screw the Brewers and their fans and the horse they just rode out on. Their fanbase feels the same about us so its my turn now to have some fun with it :banana:. You know the saying, 'if you ain't got that Ring it don't mean a thang'. We got ours in 2016, Brewers have 0 in their franchise history.

Lololrotflmao.  I should not make fun of them. The Vikes, despite their history of 4 SBs and the great Purple People Eaters, have never won a ring. :(

Vikings actually do have a much better history than the Brewers though. They have at least played in 4 SB's and their 1998 team is amongst the best to ever be going 15-1.

You may get your Ring this year. Vikings have just as good as chance as anyone else to win it all IMO.

That and most of their fanbase talks crap about the Cubs, calling them scrubs, etc.. Let me see Team A: makes the NLCS 3 straight years and wins a WS over the last 5 years. Team B: makes 1 NLCS and chokes away Game 7 at home over the last 5 years. Team B talking smack has some fans with a low IQ :spit:
