Re: 2016 MLB Season

Hard to watch that go down with Zach Britton sitting in the bullpen...

Blue Jays are a tough team. Pretty amazing that the O's and Jays not only played in the same Division, ended the season with the same Win/Loss record, were separated by one game in the season series, and go extra innings in the Wild Card game.

Time to start the "2017 MLB Season" thread!

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Yeah, Showalter is going to take some heat leaving that guy in the pen. If only the O's could have scored late that would have made it a much easier decision. On the road it's more of a gut feeling when to send the closer out in a tie game. Can we just fast forward to Spring Training? Cubs win it all and call it a day.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

He's going to take heat for sure. The real truth is that the Jay's pitching held the O's to 2 runs in 9 innings...and the O's were about 6-inches away from making a catch in the outfield that would have held the Jays to a single run.

That's what it really came down to.

I still think that Britton should have entered the game the second Toronto got a baserunner in the 11th... the guy had one of the single best relief seasons in the history of MLB, with 0.54 ERA and an 80% ground ball rate... but Showalter was obviously reserving him to be a hammer with the lead (which would have been called a genius move if the game had gone that way).

I hope the O's can scrap another good season together...but with the AL East locked and loaded, it's not going to be easy.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Jeff - this Toronto V Texas series is killing me. I think the O's would have feasted on those two Texas pitching performances!

Cleveland - Toronto ALCS?

Re: 2016 MLB Season

It's certainly looking that way. I expected Texas to put a much better foot forward. I'm thinking maybe Toronto has gotten hot at the right time and is going to be representing the AL. The Cubs are everybody's darlings but Toronto is battle tested and can mash!

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Uh huh, they're good. I don't know what our record was against them this year but I don't remember many wins.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Andrew Miller is recognized, but one of the least heralded stars in the MLB. Cleveland obviously has a lot of weapons, but having that guy as a mid to late game reliever gives them a lot of room for error.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

A good bullpen is essential in the postseason. The Royals laid the groundwork and showed you don't have to have a lineup of mashers to win in October. Although I wouldn't mind 5 Bumgarner's who can throw complete games either.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Cubs go up 2-0 over the Giants? I think so and really look forward to a Toronto vs. Cubs World Series. I gotta root for the Cubs to break that curse. Where do you suppose Steve Bartman is right now?
