    Goose Gossage, Pete Rose and “unwatchable baseball
    https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2019/08/19...d-unwatchable-

    Funny article. The struggle to reconcile baseball this year has been a goldmine. The tanking, the favorite betting, the overs, the 1st 5 derivative (bullpen avoidance)

    It’s home run derby every night, and if that’s what they want, that’s what they’re going to get. But they have to understand something … Home runs are up. Strikeouts are up. But attendance is down. I didn’t go to Harvard or one of those Ivy League schools, but that’s not a good thing.”
    -Pete Rose

    Detach yourself from the argument and think about how it IS.

    Astros Miley -500 v Tigers Zimmerman? Does that finally stretch the limit of the autobet? If you think you see value with Detroit I want to know your name.

    In a game that is perhaps traditionally the easiest to handicap the world has been turned on its ear. THAT IS WHATS CALLED OPPORTUNITY.

    Remain agnostic and just bet

    Of course I’m baiting Druff. Now I feel bad. I took down the Stu Druffstein avatar. I’m trying.

    But I’m trying to make Druff a better bettor.

    So this is the most important quiz you will take today.

    Yankees & Dodgers have the 1st and 2nd best records in baseball

    Question:
    Who has the best ROI. It’s not even close.

    Answer:
    Look up

    We crushed favorites with NHL and now MLB. Gimme the lecture pops

    Sawks have lost Sale for 2019.

    They're pretty much finished. What a collapse, from dominant World Champs to likely missing the playoffs.

    They currently sit 6.5 behind the second wildcard.

    Sawks’ Dombroski had his chance to yard sale and abandon this edition and restock empty minors

    They were never relevant this year and had no shot.

    I think Sale’s 5yr $145m contract starts next year.

    85 yr old Larry King is filing for his 8th divorce.

    His 2 sons were afraid his wife was gonna renew the Dodger season tickets. They told the old man to bounce

    Larry King is a legend.

    I don't know what any of this nonsense means, but the Dodgers do have a Kenley Jansen problem.

    He's pretty much blowing every close game he's brought into, including against bad teams.

    Sure, the Dodgers have a million home run hitters to bail him out of ties in extra innings when this happens, but it's going to be a problem in October.

    On the bright side, they're 50-16 at home.

    Surprised no one outside of LA is noticing Will Smith, who is absolutely killing it.

    Also, MLB just warned players who are dissatisfied with the size of their dick that taking bullshit supplements like Extenze might violate the drug policy.

    Seriously.

    What a time we live in.

    Mary Hart and Larry King were hard to miss amidst all the empty seats behind home plate at Dodger home games.

    Now you have one less

    Larry King had a talk show for decades.

    MLB issued a warning to the players: if after taking male enhancement your ball game lasts more than 4 hours, see a doctor

    Let’s not get too excited yet Todger, we’ve been here before. Nobody inside SoCal is noticing Will Smith either. Remember, 60% of us don’t get the Dodgers on TV, for 6 years running.

No Seager, Bellinger, Buehler, or even Urias quality players there at the moment. And you can't expect a Chris Taylor (2017) or Max Muncy (2018) to show up every year to bail you out when you have holes in your team.

    2019 so far: Verdugo, Beaty, Smith, Urias, Sadler...and still perhaps Lux, May, Gonsolin

    There wasn't a huge breakout rookie this year with the impact of these others I mentioned, until Will Smith who has only been up for a short time.

    Verdugo was doing fairly well (.294/12 HR)/.817 OPS), but he got injured, and he still wasn't a huge impact player.

    THis team also didn't have offensive holes this year, aside from catcher, and that has been solved for the moment by Smith.

    Uniforms are super weird, I agree.

    Ryu isn't quite looking as dominating lately.

    Yankees big bats already clobbered him for 2 solo shots.

    The rhythm of the seasons.

    September rolls in. The nights get cooler. Dodgers can’t hit better lefties.

    There is a comfort that comes from these things

    you said no help from the minors was the biggest problem...I say that those players have provided the help: per fangraphs through today the WAR's are Verdugo 2.2, Smith 1.9, Urias 1.1, Beaty .9, and Sadler .1, with the probable exception of Sadler, If these guys were all playing since day 1 of 2019 and without injury they would at or above the 2-3 WAR for the season...and for an entire season 2-3 is considered production enough to hold a starting job on any major league team (only an very good to all star performer would play a position ahead of that player, but the player would be moved to another place so he could play), so indeed, a regular player is a valuable asset and a help to the major league team
