    Harper has finally signed, so the official 2019 MLB season is underway. Baseball crew report in: Robz4000, lefty20, AlexJones, Chris, AlexJones, FrostKing, Reck, djohn2oo8.

    Some quick rundowns.

    -Kershaw is battling injuries. Hasn't yet thrown a ball this entire spring. Is he finally done?
    -Rockies signed Arenado to a huge extension.
    -Padres have a stacked infield, great farm system, but probably lack the pitching to make any real noise this season.
    -Despite the Phillies acquiring Harper, Braves still faves to take the division.
    -Pitch clock is working well in spring training.

    I got Rangers are the bottom of the division that the Astros will easily win. Red Sox will probably win the American League; they have a really good prospect at 3B (what a surprise)

    Yeah. That division has zero threats to the Astros. I think the A's were a bit of a fluke.

    Bob Melvin is a very good manager.

    Red Sox and Astros are gonna run the AL again this season; not sure who wins in the rematch.

    NL is more of a crap shoot with all the young talented teams on the rise. Only call is that the Doyers won't be back in the WS and I don't think the Cubs will be there either.

    Winner between Red Sox/Astros wins it all, just like last year.

    You liking your youth movement? Tatis could be special. He's carrying like a 1400 OPS right now

    I do, but I'm not holding my breath just yet; I've seen this song and dance before. I do like Preller a lot though, even if his first few moves as GM were disasters.

    Indeed. Would like to see Tatis cut down his K-rate. Was about 30% in the minors. Compare that to Vlad Jr's 14%.

    I'm expecting an MVP season from KB but Cubs' aging pitching core doesn't inspire much confidence me. I expect Brewers to take a step back since 80% of their roster exceeded expectations last year, especially in September where they won at a 119 win pace. Cardinals scare me a lot more.

    It doesn't look like we ever see the old Kersh again. Can't be a good thing if the guy is struggling to show up to ST at 100% health after having an entire off season to do just that.

    Division races between Cubs/Cards, Sox/Yanks & Braves/Phils should make for some good regular season drama.

    I reflect back on Alex Rodriguez signing with the Rangers. Few ideas

    - Mariners were a 91 win (ALCS) team in Arods final season, far cry from the current Angels. But Mariners actually improved after the 25 year old Rodriguez left

    - Trout is 27 and already 6 seasons in the league. 0 career playoff wins and 1 career playoff hit. In comparsion Arod had 3 quality playoff series under his belt

    Angels had little choice but to resign Trout as a big market team but this illustrates a significant problem in this sport and I worry what occurs when Acuna hits free agency.

    Trout is once in a generation, even lifetime, so Acuna probably won't command as much. Even then, baseball really is all about your farm system, so if teams develop correctly, they can take the hit of losing a star in free-agency. Example is the Nationals. They lost Harper (who is admittedly overrated, but is still a superior talent who will more than likely find his form again) but developed this Soto kid, who will be the new face of the franchise going forward. With the Dodgers, as Kershaw declines, we have Walker Buehler ready to step in the lead ace role. Thankfully baseball isn't like basketball where losing a top 5 player can set a franchise back decades, since individual players don't have the same amount of impact on team success. Not to mention the NBA's developmental system (i.e. NCAA to "learning on the job") is a joke.

    ESPN projects Phillies finish 4th. Yikes that city will eat up Harper if so


    1. Mets --
    2. Braves 1GB
    3. Nationals 2GB
    4. Phillies 3GB
    5. Fish


    Padres: 74-88
    3rd Place
