Fluke. When was the last time before that? 2000?


That was no fluke... DeGrom, Harvey, Thor in their primes. You couldn't ask for better in post season baseball. If we had a catcher that could actually throw to second, we might have been champs.


You're right. "Fluke" was an inaccurate word to use. I mean "aberration." :D

I really wanted to keep Murph. We could've made another run the following year if we resigned him.

Don't forget Y.Cespedes and D.Murphy cause we don't get there without those two.

Plus Kelly Johnson and Jose Uribe. Actually, it was a magical 2015 run to the playoffs and then WS. Then we lost to the better team.

I mean if Toronto beats them, we win that WS. KC was just built to beat us.

This year has been underwhelming to say the least, but Alonso has been a joy to watch. With most of this team being underwhelming, he's been a breath of fresh air.
