Isn't the World Series being played?

Nope. Lakers are blowing a 13 point lead in the second half. Too busy cringing at each Kobe shot

Like I seriously thought they were going to win mid-way though the 2nd half. shog[1].gif

Fuck, just realized I should have gotten some Chapstick and a Mets' cap and been Daniel Murphy for Halloween. I could have grabbed a cheap fielder's glove and cut a big hole in the webbing.

Is their some kind of Illuminati conspiracy that is keeping Mike Trout from winning the MVP?

 

He's been the best player in baseball every year since 2012 with nothing to show for it.

for the record, trout won mvp last year (2014) and cabrera won mvp and the triple crown in 2012. cabrera won again in 2013 hitting 17 more home runs and 40 more RBI's than trout while all else being equal. 

 

donaldson had a monster year similar to trout's and his team made the playoffs.

arrieta won cy young :(

 

and Cabrera winning the triple crown argument for MVP again? :confused: 

post #4677 of 5149

just pointing out the fact that there isn't any conspiracy. just like there was no conspiracy that shaq only got one regular season mvp...

post #4678 of 5149
Well yeah.. No conspiracy.

Just baseball writer being dumb like normal. Going with 'the story'(arrive at) or traditional views (triple crown)

How did I forget 2014?! Either way, the Triple Crown is nonsense and RBIs are irrelevant. Trout has been the best player in baseball every year since 2012 and this year is no exception. Josh Donaldson is also a douchebag.

Really? I haven't heard anything negative about Donaldson. FWIW I have no problem with Donaldson over trout this year, and they are relatively equal by most metrics.
