Round 1 of the playoffs vs NYY


NumbNutsArts

Now you're just triggering PTSD


tonybarnaby

When pitching staff


Jcashman317

oof this is a repeating nightmare up there.


ghost91372

That's not triggering that's just mean


chauterverm88

To piggyback on that one: The Yankees might miss the playoffs this year.


DanTreview

Oakland? Isn't that near LA? Moneyball? Everyone is doing that now; it doesn't even work.


damned-to-suffer

billy is going to the mets


DanTreview

Yeah *The Athletic* won't shut up about it. Yes, I'm triggered LOL


mark_oh_pollo

Oh wow. I thought Oakland really was in LA.


Ok_Classic_744

uncle_Vernon

Tito blew the WS by keeping Shaw in the game


OGTravisScott

How dare u


Fools_Requiem

No, no, he's right. Shaw is usually only good for one inning. If he had to take a break for whatever reason, he almost never came back to the mound pitching as well as he did in the previous inning. Had that inning not been broken up by the rain delay, I bet he doesn't allow any runs.


OGTravisScott

Lol I know he's right. If only we had Clase back in the day


Drunk_Irishman81

And now ill cry myself to sleep. Just like the golden days of 2016...and 1997.


sjosaben

I think he blew it not starting Merrit in game 5 and pushing Kluber too far. Would have given the other starters extra rest and easily could have swung the series. Also that god damned drone injury….


capnclutchpenetro

You're absolutely correct.


yumyumapollo

Evan Longoria's finally playing for a title contender.


firepipes08

Knowing what this thread was, I expected to chuckle at whatever Rays one I read. And yet now I'm ridiculously mad. dammit.

That was it. That was our chance in my lifetime. I will never see the Rangers win the World Series in my lifetime. I've made peace with that. I'm not dying (well, we all are technically), but that was probably the only chance I'll get. The Rangers have new ownership since then and they make a killing because it's more profitable to fill 40-60% of your new stadium and pay cheap players than to sell out the stadium with an expensive roster. The Rangers are all about bottom dollar now. Not winning. And they likely never will be.

If any recent Cards catcher is worthy, it's Matheny. But that will be for his managing career /s

Well if I wasn’t triggered before I am now

I'm completely indifferent to the Cardinals and now I'm angry


strangehitman22

We were never making the playoffs this year


MankuyRLaffy

Well we all knew it anyways, we just don't like to face reality.


Alamo_Jack

This doesn't trigger me because I'm so used to it by now


MandrewSaurusRex

I'm just happy we are playing meaningful ball in September and are well over .500 (but knowing the mariners they could lose just enough to finish just below)


_Elrond_Hubbard_

Yeah the M's have the worst team batting average this year in all of MLB, it's bizarre and hilarious that we're even over .500


IIIlIIIIlIIIlIIIl

The most baffling thing about the mariners playoff drought is that it seems like theyre never the worst in the league. Theyre always closer to middle of the pack


Fairlady31

That makes complete sense. Teams that bottom out usually get better draft picks and try to make the playoffs during a window period.


SexiestPanda

No World Series appearances. No playoffs in 20 years


butterlog

Don't forget: We wasted Felix's career The jays draw better in Seattle than the Ms Choo for Broussard Cabrera for Perez Adam Jones+ for Bedard Ortiz for Hollins Derek Lowe and Jason Veritek for Heathcliff Slocumb Ohtani spurned us to play for the fucking Angels Mike Trout


_Elrond_Hubbard_

I think we're too hardened by grief to be triggered by the past anymore, nowadays to break a Mariners fan you need to destroy their hope for the future

Drifting_Silently

No one on r/baseball cares about the Blue Jays. The Royals were the better team in 2015; it was legitimately a home run.

he probably should though. also just saying Fernando Tatis could trigger the White Sox fans.

Ohtani should go to a competitive team. 👍( I hope I don't get killed) lol


brandon_the_bald

You will be


tristpa2

Like the Yankees. Can you just imagine Ohtani in pinstripes?


Mr6ixFour

Ohtani and Trout for Andrew Heaney? I heard we need pitching.


tristpa2

Nah that's not enough. Maybe a three way trade, try and get Quintana also


Brutalious

OP said trigger *your* fanbase, not *every* fanbase.


baberuthscolon

Media would be even more insufferable if he were in pinstripes.


mark_oh_pollo

We found the most triggering comment. Call it a day everyone.


maverickoff

I said competitive team/s kinda lol


_Elrond_Hubbard_

Jarred Kelenic has 1.98 times more strikeouts than hits in the majors Cal Raleigh has 2.19 times more strikeouts than hits in the majors Taylor Trammell has 3.00 times more strikeouts than hits in the majors Evan White has 2.50 times more strikeouts than hits in the majors Jake Fraley has 1.81 times more strikeouts than hits in the majors


_Elrond_Hubbard_

The future is bright. There is no hitting development problem in Ba Sing Se.


3lgu4p0

You can go 100 for 300 with 200 strikeouts and still be hitting .333. (My HS baseball career, basically.)


DecoyOne

LA has a better zoo Tony Gwynn wasn’t going to hit .400 in 1994 I watched the replay and I think he touched the plate Obviously, these are all dirty lies.


[deleted]

First one especially is a dirty lie


The_broke_accountant

Most definitely, I’m from LA and our zoo is just straight up garbage when comparing it to SD.


DuckGrabber

Pretty much any zoo is garbage compared to SD


70U1E

But are your guys's zoos FREE?!?!!?? 😃


Blimmmer

I been to SD zoo every time I visit because it’s so wonderful. LA zoo is like 30 min away and I’ve been once as a kid.


cheesefries45

Of all the arguments between SD and LA, I think this might be the one that you won’t hear any debate on lol. Like, I’ve never been to the LA zoo but I’m sure it’s okay. Just happens that SD Zoo is world renowned lol


neontrain

I’m not even joking I broke up with a girl once because she said the LA zoo was better than the SD zoo. We were only together a week at that point so there really wasn’t much invested at that point and there were many other reasons too but I just couldn’t.


cheesefries45

Well that’s understandable. Why would you date a person who’s not only dumb, but also has bad taste?


[deleted]

[удалено]


cheesefries45

True. Although I’m personally ok with it because it gave me an out from that cursed ass franchise. Hence why I made the logical choice and became a browns fan right before their 0-16 season


iamhollywood

LA zoo feels like it’s accidentally there. Like animals just showed up one day and someone was like, “Zoo, I guess?”


Monk_Philosophy

If I wanted to trigger the SD fanbase I would instead say: “He didn’t touch home plate but Hoffman was going to blow the game anyway so it made no difference”


amanneeds2names

I was gonna say, SD zoo Is rated top in the world hahah u were really trying to trigger us all


TRocho10

Look I'm opposed to murder, but you're really pushing it here lol

if there's anybody that didn't realize that by now they're a complete asshole. this only would have worked in 03

A more triggering comment might be “Steve bartman blocked a catchable ball and got what was coming to him” at this point

Sweet Caroline is the most annoying tradition in sports and if you sing along to it the first thing you did when you got to the park was probably take a selfie in a pink Sox hat with the field in the background


GoSox1992

Tony La Russa actually is managing well. Leury Garcia isn’t as bad as people say he is. And for my duel sport Chicagoans Andy Dalton is starting over Justin Fields lol


TwillOngenbone

The first two statements are actually true and I think a lot of Sox fans would happily agree with them.


ResidentGerts

I feel like Leury haters are the vocal minority. Most Sox fans that have watched more than the last two seasons know his value to this team


PhoenixGamer34

Derek Jeter is overrated and got more Hall of Fame votes than he should have.

Oh you son of a bitch.


ClassicMach

The 2014 Tigers had 4 (likely soon to be 5) Cy Young winners on the roster.


SammyMac19

Saddest part about this is that team wasn't even the best team of that window of years, 2013 was our best shot.


Alkynesofchemistry

.500 is inevitable Tatis should win mvp


Admiralsnackbarrrr

The .500 doesn't trigger me that second part tho, we throwin hands brother.


3lgu4p0

Big Papi was almost certainly juicing. EDIT- And DHs don't belong in the HOF. Ortiz played some first base but not enough to go in as a first baseman.

I could feel my blood pressure rise with this. Good job man.

We’ll never experience a period of Yankee domination ever again. The late 90’s were fluky and the rest of our championships were won when we only had like 1.5 teams to beat.

Petco & Oracle Park have better food & beer than Dodger Stadium.

As a dodger fan and long time season ticket holder, you’re not wrong.

Should change better to superior because Dodger Stadium concessions are a boring, corporate hellhole. It's like an airport's food court.

2016 Game 4 bullpen


CrustyM

Anyone else here disappointed by Vlad Jr? When he came up, the hype around him was so huge I was expecting him to be an instant success. Fresh rookie or not, I expected him to be getting big hits and home runs every time he came up to the plate because that's what they said he was capable of. Instead, all we've gotten is him taking ugly hacks at unhittable pitches and striking out all the damn time. He's got barely any hits, very few (if any) RBIs, and no home runs to his name. Now, before you say "he's just a rookie" or "he's only human" "or "he's got a big challenge ahead of him", you're wrong on all accounts. He is not just another rookie or just another baseball player. He is Vlad Jr, the most vaunted prospect in Blue Jays history. He is supposed to rise to the occasion and be the person that eventually guides us back to the World Series, the person who instantly becomes the best hitter since Ted Williams, and the person who brings an end to all of our team's woes. As such, I'm disappointed that he hasn't been any of that. By this point, I would dare say that we can start calling him a dud. Get as angry as you want over this; it won't change the fact that I'm right.


CamSox1

Miguel Sanó is a pretty good player even though he strikes out 35+% of the time and it’s silly to call for him to be released or sent to the minors every time he slumps for a month.
