    MLB 2019 Off Season Thread - The Dodgers Choked. Again

    Another season is in the books, and another Dodgers choke job has been completed. The last 5 teams to beat the Dodgers in the playoffs either made it to or won the world series. Donald Trump got boo'd out of the Nationals stadium. Home field advantage wound up meaning jack and shit in the world series, where the first time in all of North American sports, a best of 7 championship round had the road team winning every game.

    Golden Glove awards are in the books, and really no surprises or WTF moments from the voters. The rest of the awards will be announced over the coming 8 weeks.

    Qualifying offers have been given out, and we will see if anyone takes the bait and goes for a 17.1 Million dollar prove it deal. Free agency will probably be a horrible slow slog like it was last year, despite having several big names testing the waters for the first time, including Anthony Rendon, Stephen Strasburgh, Gerrit Cole, and Madison Bumgarner. Some others decided not to opt out like J.D. Martinez, Ardolis Chapman, and Jake Arrieta.

    No surpris and the right people won. MVP is going to be the interesting vote in both leagues as both front runners got hurt and missed the last month of the season.

    r/baseball is pretty lit right now, an article on The Athletic about how the Astros steal signs was posted and now a bunch of videos found from random games about it are going up.

    the astros official response wasn’t even a denial, it was “we’ll look into it”

    In other news, the Yankee bias and/or tax is very real. How Boone didn’t win AL MotY is beyond me. It’s almost as big a snub as Judge’s MVP season.

    But I guess Rocco had an uphill task with such a stacked division against the White Sox, Royals, and Tigers.

    Yeah, with the amount of injuries the Yankees had this year, Boone plugged in so many people and still won all of those games... he was clearly robbed.

    Death penalty!

    Also interesting to think about what kind of impact it could have on player statistics, depending on how pervasive it was

    It's like the coach says at the end, if the plaintiff won it would've been the end of high school sports. And the kid that got hurt, who is now an adult, probably still thinks he is somehow a victim of wrongdoing instead of the simple truth that he had a freak accident during school sports. Terrible.

    Thought voting was before post season.

    Also MLB is expanding the scope of the sign stealing. This is going to get really juicy real quick. Especially if Beltran and Cora, two people who are supposedly heavily involved with it do wind up getting suspended for it as they are both no longer with the Astro's and will fuck over their current teams they manage (Red sox and Mets)

    The entire Astros sign stealing stuff is just spiralling out of control.

    I am quite entertained.
