Regular Season thread: 2019 Edition
#21
The Jays have won only 3 of the first 11 games.

The World Champion Red Sox....have done the same.

I knew the Jays were supposed to be bad...but what's up with the Sox?

World Series hangover? Is that even a thing in baseball?
Hope is a necessary evil of being a fan. Otherwise, what are you cheering for? Only one team wins, what is it called for the other 30 that don’t if not hoping they win?

11 games in and I think Mike Trout is already nearly a 2 WAR player (according to ESPN, anyways).

Perhaps so. The Astros staggered a bit at the beginning of last season but got it turned around obviously.

Seems the Sawx blew their load by winning practically everything last season.

Chris Sale is gradually beginning to lose his effectiveness as a 'go-to' starter on the mound. Their pitching staff has been getting battered in the early stages.

I wouldn't count out the Sawx just yet though, but there are some troubling and disturbing patterns with the ballclub right now and if they don't fine-tune those issues soon enough, then we could see one of the greater collapses from World Series championship juggernaut to an 'also-ran' in the space of a year. Not nearly 1998 Marlins-like as far as a catastrophic collapse( and that one happened because of severe cost-cutting measures )....but the Red Sox so far are displaying some real awful patterns that might not necessarily be 'quick fixes', at least that's how it looks right now at the moment.

When he hired Tobi Rieder as his personal hitting-coach, I knew it wouldn't end well.

Up to 61 now.

Apparently some tough luck in that though...statcast showed that one of the bslls off his bat, had an exit velocity of 105, and angle of 18 degrees...problem was it was to dead centre, and it was caught.

At least Chris Davis has been making contact with the baseball....problem is, they still end up landing in the outfielder's gloves.


And to think, at one time, he mashed out 53 HRs one year( 2012 I think it was )

On the flipside, the other Khris Davis is leading baseball with 9 HRs so far.

Read somewhere that Vlad Jr. could make his MLB debut vs the Angels on April 30. Shohei Ohtani could also make his season debut in that series. Should be a fun series Grin
