I still re-watch 2011 Game 6 highlights. For that matter, I still re-watch Beltran striking out looking in the NLCS.

Yikes:

One thing I did not include in the Correa story: He revealed that he injured his right thumb in #Astros’ walkoff celebration in Game 2 ALCS.
Correa said he received numerous injections in thumb, revealing series of needle marks. Still had .866 OPS in playoffs and .817 OPS in WS.

Yikes indeed.

Last time I tried to be a Greg Bird-esque second baseman, but everybody else was some kind of ubermensch so it didn't work out too great for me.

I feel that every series has a crazy loving injury that the player was hiding out of pure adrenaline. I wonder how bad Correa's thumb was

Oh hell yes! Royals not the worst in the division!

I don't know if anyone other than Braves or Royals fans care but apparently the Royals blocked Dayton Moore from interviewing for Atlanta's GM job a few days ago. Which, if I'm Dayton I'm probably pretty annoyed by, Atlanta seems like an easier rebuild right now than the Royals do.

BasicFunk posted:

Might not be such a bad thing for him since MLB is probably about to deal the Braves a giant bag of poo poo for whatever John Coppolella did.
Yeah the few vague remarks Moore made publicly about the Braves' interest seemed like they were clearly a thanks but no thanks.

Sign me the gently caress up. Assuming OOTP is wired to handle it, I'll make a Mariano Rivera style closer, but instead of only throwing a cutter he only throws changeups. Really good changeups, but just changeups.

But I've also seen a lot of articles say Raul doesn't want to leave his job with LA.
