2013 MLB Regular Season Wrapup Discussion Thread

I agree with John...as much as I'd like to say they are built on hitting and that fails in the playoffs, they actually have good-great pitching. They will be hard to beat in the playoffs. Anything is possible...if you remember Verlander was a guaranteed win VS the G'S last year.

I don't know who Rodriguez is, but in the postseason I'd imagine that Wilson's their 7th inning guy, Bellasario sets up Jensen, and Capuano gets moved to the bullpen as a situational lefty/long reliever. There's no reason for League to pitch significant innings.

Paco Rodriguez. He is their situational lefty and has a 1.88 ERA. Has been very tough on lefties all year.

Forgive me, I'm a bandwagon fan.

So ya...between him, Wilson, Bellasario, and the Dodgers likely going to a 4 man rotation in the playoffs means that League won't see important innings.

would have been tough if he didn't. probably noticed the tarp from his peripheral vision. would have been harder to completely slow down and lean over.

but i agree with a lot of players over selling their plays. the best is when its a fly ball and the OF catches it..and smashes into the wall. totally unnecessary

I dont know man. That was a pretty special catch and I think he did need to dive to get it.

agreed. would have harder to slow his momentum and lean over in my opinion.

But if it was Freddie Freeman or Chris Johnson it would have been the greatest catch ever.

LOL Chris Johnson is retarded , Andrelton would have had to make that play and Freddie wouldnt have dove
