    Well, they removed him from the season ticket page, apparently. But they have a sky high asking price for him.

    I may just be getting back into baseball, albeit very casually, but I quite fancy Betts. I do think they will let Martinez walk, though.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    He's got one year left and will cost 30M next year. They're not getting a boatload of prospects which is why it doesn't make sense to me. Unless the acquiring team gets a negotiable window to talk to Betts about an extension but he's made it clear he wants to be a free agent I just can't imagine what a deal looks like where they get anything to justify moving him.

    I wouldn't trade any of our top prospects for a 1 year rental. I'm not sure anyone will do that anymore. The game is just different now and teams are way less inclined to do that type of deal.

    Maybe they can con the White Sox into a deal or something. They signed Yonder Alonso just to try to lure Machado there since they're related by marriage. Wouldn't shock me if they moved real value just to try and convince Betts to re-sign.

    So, Grim, how did that long playoff run work out for you?

    The Yankees are a buzzsaw, but then again when you're going up against a team that hasn't won a postseason game in 15 years they should be sweeping. I'm hoping Houston can close it out against Tampa today so that they'll have a little extra rest before the ALDS begins on Saturday.

    On the NL side of things, I'm totally rooting for St. Louis and Washington to win their respective game 5's. I think the Cards have a much better chance of winning, just based on the Flaherty/Folty matchup. However, Strasburg won't make it easy for the Dodgers, and watching them lose at home in a game 5 would be pretty awesome.

    Dodgers losing Game 5 of NLDS at home would make this entire year worth it.

    While I rather enjoy the current incarnation of the Braves, I'm still a Phillies fan (who honestly also hates the Cards) and it would make me feel a WHOOOOOOOOLE lot better about my shitty team if the Braves also lost Game 5.

    I was dozing off but the Altuve homer woke me right back up. I think Astros/Nats has the potential to be a great series, though maybe not so much for the batters.

    I'm pulling for the Nats, but I'd be fine with Houston adding to their legacy as well.

    I, too, am pulling for the Nationals. Strasburg-Mad Max-Corbin versus Cole-Verlander-Greinke is pretty awesome. I hope the series sticks to just those trios.

    Was kinda hoping for a Houston/Cards WS, but this will do nicely. Hopefully the Nats can win this one.

    Rooting for the 'Stros here. Can't have another NL East team winning it.

    Astros/Cards was my pick for the finals, so I'm cool with being half right. I did pick the Astros to win it all, but with the lack of a perfect bracket thanks to the Cards going out, I'll cheer for the team that beat them. They were the Montreal Expos at one point, so it's kind of like cheering for Canada.

    I'm glad the Expos finally won a World Series after they should have had one in 1994.

    I will say that, while I feel bad for Hinch being second guessed, he kind of deserves it for not bringing Cole into the game. Not entirely sure what he was thinking with that move.

    Astros had a great bullpen. It was high leverage enough that using Cole there would have made sense but I don't hate the move. Kendrick hit a pitcher's pitch and it's the first time all year he hit a pitch in that location for anything other than a single.

    Astros made their pitch. Kendrick hit it.

    It also hit the pole. A foot to the right and it's foul and a footnote in an eventual out.

    Love that the Nationals let Bryce Harper walk after he demands more than the huge price they already offered him. He goes to the Phillies, and they don't make the playoffs. And the first year, without Harper, the Nationals win it all.

    Good for them. They deserve it. Screw Bryce Harper.

    You can't just say good for the Nationals, you have to shit all over Harper?

    The Nats did become the ultimate Ewing Theory team.
