2021-2022 MLB off-season discussion

SDS

I know I had one last year, figured I’d do another. Lol

The most recent news is that Justin Verlander is signing a one year, $25M deal with the Astros. Player option for the second year.

SDS

I guess he likes playing with cheaters.

SDS

That is such an awful contract lol

SDS

Robbie Ray is your 2021 AL Cy Young award winner! He SHOVED this year, posting a 2.84 ERA and a MLB-Best 248 strikeouts.

SDS

Also I will mention this here, with Robbie Ray winning the CY young award, 8 of the last 22 CY Young awards have been won by pitchers that played for the 2014 Tigers, who got swept in the first round. Pain.

SDS

Corbin Burnes - NL Cy Young winner

SDS

Ohtani and Harper have won the 2021 MVP awards!

SDS

Wow guys, this isn't 1935 where we have to wait a day to get the morning Newspapaer to find out who won these awards.

Discussion. The point of saying that was for discussion. 🤦

SDS

The Astros have trade Garrett Stubbs to the Phillies for minor leauger Logan Cerny

The Phillies acquire Donny Sands in a separate trade with the Yankees.

Then add something dude, don't just say the obvious.....did your statement cause a discussion?. You can begin the discussion by giving your opinion on it, do you agree with it or not for example. If you play with a PCI or only online then I would understand why you just stated the obvious and left it at that 🙂

SDS

The Yankees Designated OF Clint Frazier, INF Rougned Odor and INF Tyler Wade for assignment.
It's kind of odd. Not saying it was the wrong move, just wasn't expecting it.

SDS

How did Brandon Crawford not win NL MVP? What a joke.

Because Bryce Harper was better and received 17 first place votes to Crawford's 4 first place votes.

Honeywell to the A’s for money

No he wasn’t. Anyone who watched what Crawford accomplished this year saw that. And Crawford was one of the reasons the Giants won the NL West. Did the Phillies win their division? Were they in the wild card? Nope. They weren’t in the postseason.

SDS

Bryce Harper
*AVG; .309
*OBP: .429
*SLG: .615
*HRS: 35
*RUNS: 101
RBIS: 84
*SB: 13
*WAR: 6.6

Brandon Crawford
AVG; .298
OBP: .373
SLG: .522
HRS: 24
RUNS: 79
*RBIS: 90
SB: 11
WAR: 5.5

So tell me how Crawford was better than Harper. Apparently the Baseball Writers of America didn't agree with your assessment because Crawford came in 4th place.

We are long past the days where a team making the playoffs is a major factor in the MVP award. None of the six finalists (3 in each league) made it into the postseason. If that is not a clear indication that making the playoffs does not get considered as a major factor then I don't know what would convince you.
