How much do you wanna bet you'd be singing a different tune if Betts or JD were in the derby? Youre predictable like that.

Laugh at Bluto for allowing me to own acres of land in his head.

Im BUYING the Sawks success right now.

All 230 million of it.

Boston fans like Powers dont want anyone to mention his team has the highest payroll by far.

You know, since theyve always accused the Yanks of buying ws titles.

I'm not sure if this is some kind of PTSD you have from being a prison bitch that has you making everything about the Red Sox, but my comment was clearly about the players in the HRD not being the elite HR hitters in the league. The HRD has become a yawnfest of no names, just like the Slam Dunk Contest in the NBA.

For the record, while I don't want to see Betts nor JDM in the HRD, watching them duke it out against Stanton and Judge would be entertaining. So I'd rather they keep their home run swings pure for the remainder of the season instead of competing for a meaningless big dick contest and then slumping in the middle of a pennant race.

Oh, sorry. A pennant race is when a team is in competition to win your division. I keep forgetting that Mets fans don't know what that is.

I heard something last night and did some research:

Doc Gooden was the best pitcher on the planet in the summer of ’85. The numbers certainly back up such an assessment. His 24 victories (including 14 in a row), 268 strikeouts, and microscopic 1.53 ERA all led the major leagues. The latter figure was the second-lowest (post Deadball Era) behind Bob Gibson’s 1.12 mark in 1968. His 276 innings pitched and 16 complete games led the Senior Circuit.

Sabermetrics have clearly shown that Gooden’s 1985 season was indeed one of the best in history. His WHIP of 0.965 was second in the NL that year only to the Cardinals’ John Tudor. Using the Wins Above Replacement formula developed by BaseballProjection.com’s Sean Smith, Gooden topped all of baseball in 1985 with a WAR of 13.2. Since 1900, only two players have had higher figures. Deadball pitcher Walter Johnson’s was 16 in 1913, and 14.6 in 1912. Babe Ruth’s was 14.1 in 1923.
At the ASB, Dwight Gooden had a 1.68 ERA. Last night after punching out the last hapless Phillie with a 98 mph heater on his 113th pitch, deGrom finished with a 1.68 ERA.

JdG so fucking good.

Making debut pitchers look like bonafide aces and managing not to score with the bases loaded and no out

No team has mastered these arts quite like the Amazins.

Btw - what has to happen for Philly to win a series against the Mets? Next time they meet, just bring up the single A team....

Having such a historic year for a team playing meaningless baseball for the majority of the season is mighty sad.

Speaking of research, i have to find out whats the record for least amount of run support for a SP in a single season.

12-1
5 Aces

Thx for proving my point that everything in baseball revolves the Yanks and Sawks and their overrated rivalry according to you.

Harper and Schwarber arent elite hr hitters. Nah.

i see the Sawks have the most wins in baseball. did they manage this accpmplishmet by taking the lead in their games or staying tied?

:lbf

Powers isnt dumb like everyone says. He's SMAHT and he wants RESPECT!

Mets fans dont know what a pennant race is? Hmm thats interesting since theyve won a more recent playoff series and PENNANT than the Sawks.

Shooting fish in a barrel, folks. A cookie down the heart of the plate....

Oh look everyone, its underdoggy.

He has nothing to add b/c hes become accustomed to watching the Mets wipe their asses with the Phillies. Another walk off HR......

good thing the depleted Mets won a few games here allowing your Braves to move back into first place.

Cubs reportedly in talks to trade Russell and Happ for Jacob deGrom. 

Don't want to see either go (would miss Happ more than Addy) but would welcome JdG

Your obsession continues as you continue to defend the indefensible. Only 2 out of the top 10 HR hitters in the league are participating in the HRD. Of those, Harper has a whopping .213 batting average. The last two winners not participating. Neither are Trout, Machado, or Lindor.

Yawn.

JdG is great, no doubt.He's also a late bloomer, he's 30. He needs to carefully manage his career because he one big payday via free agency doesn't come until after 2020. 

Under the current system Doc would have been 100-39 2.64 ERA and 25 years old when he became eligible for free agency. How much would that be worth?

Going back to 1903, I think JdG is #1 in that category.

57 out of 125 starts, 1 run or less ERA.

He probably got less than 25 runs support..eyes
