When I was younger (uphills both ways no shows in snow) ball parks had HUGE netting covering all of the backstop to the dugouts (shea, yankee, wrigley and fenway first hand). When did better views trump fan safety? I watched it happened and have been sick to my stomach. Cant imagine how the grandparents feel and the parents who were not present feel.
I only hope she is okay and makes a full recovery. At such a young age the baseball is probably larger than her face. Thoughts and prayers...
I would say lets go mets but they aint going anywhere

If you do a side-by-side comparison of McGwire when he first came up with his stature when he hit those HRs, you can see a pretty big growth spurt during those years.

Judge is already 6'7", 280-lbs @ age 25. He was probably 230-lbs in college. He's a linebacker with the skills to put bat on ball 75-80% of the time. I'd be very surprised if he took PEDs during those years, but who knows. I would also be very surprised if he hasn't already been tested more than once this season.
Only two players in baseball history have won the Rookie of the Year award and the Most Valuable Player award in that same season.
Both in the American League. Both outfielders.
Judge has a great chance to be the third.

Both of those two players also won gold gloves that same season. One is already in the Hall of Fame and one will get there once he is eligible.

I didn't realize they finished last. So Toronto occupied the cellar just about all year and the Orioles took it away.

I'm expecting the Yankees to be substantial favorites tomorrow, but one never knows what will happen in one game.

As an A's fan, I'll amend that statement and say that he can be a #1.

I hope you're right!

Gray is definitely not an ace, 3rd SP at best. Velocity is average in today's rotations and needs pinpoint control to get people out. He was behind a lot of hitters tonight.

As much as it pains me, Kershaw continues to underperform in the postseason.
He was pretty dominant until the 7th. The first HR was a great swing on a good pitch. The 2nd was a hanger and his only really bad pitch in 6 innings. They should not have brought him out in the 7th. Was near 100 pitches and they had a comfortable lead. The 7th has been his issue in the playoffs.
