I don't understand why the Bruins traded Seguin in the 1st place. That speaks to the arrogance the organization had at the time. You don't trade elite talent like that at such a young age. But I am oh so glad Boston did 

 

They have made those trades and lived to tell about it. They had an interesting summer. Odd. But should still field a competitive roster.

Agreed. And kudos to Toronto for making bold moves. Something someone in this thread will not address. 

 

They made all their bold moves in the offseason. Trading for Didi and Eovaldi. Both have worked out. Cashman gets a lot of credit for listening to someone on Miller and not bringing back Robertson. Inquiring minds are curious to know which player you would've acquired that wouldn't have meant giving up our untouchables. 


A man fell and died tonight in Atlanta at the game.Crazy, The man fell from section 401 and landed close to a 200-level area where players' wives and families sit. There was blood on the concrete surface around the seats.

Just awful, r.i.p.

 

That fan was in his 60's and apparently started yelling at A-Rod when he came up to pinch hit. Misplaced hate cost him his life. Sad.

Looks like the division is done. When A-Rod and Teixeira don't hit, the offense struggles. Gardner hasn't hit either. They're still too reliant on the long ball. Pineda with a rough outing in his return. He's hit or miss. Severino and Eovaldi are the most reliable starters. I put up a new post on baseball. Plenty of Yanks, Mets and on a exciting summer full of surprises.

 

Random Thoughts: Yankees, Mets and MLB

I have plenty of thoughts on the Mets and Nats. Cespedes was a great acquisition. Glad to see Flores do well. Sometimes, the trades you don't make are the best ones. They held onto Wheeler. Murphy is pretty valuable for a guy without a position. Good hitter. Think they'll re-sign him or does he leave and become another Wigginton? The Nats have been overrated all year. Harper is the offense. When he doesn't hit, it hurts. He's hit 2 or 3 home runs since the break. Scherzer also has been up and down. Washington also is a poor fielding team. They commit way too many errors to be considered a good team. You know my thoughts on Matt Williams. He blew it last year against the Giants pulling Zimmerman in the ninth. I loved him as a slugger. But he can't manage.

Auston Matthews. The Coyotes are all in. That would be a home run for Arizona. The Devils and Canes should be in the mix.
