Dodgers should find a number two starter cuz obviously the Darvish experiment was a disaster. Other than that, not really any weaknesses on that team. Just lost to a better team. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a rematch next year

series came down to the extreme fuckery in games 2 and 5. could've easily won it without darvish but jansen fading in game 2 and the entire staff meltdown in game 5 killed them.

We won't. We thought the same thing about the Cubs and Indians last year.

I think there’s a decent chance at least one gets back. Probably Houston. The American League is pretty awful outside of the Yankees and Indians

Happens every year in every sport except basketball really. Team that loses the championship comes out and disappoints next year. LA needs to overhaul their rotation but there’s not much there in free agency. Hosmer would probably be a good fit but that doesn’t really solve their biggest issues.

Amphibious and multi-engine aircraft are harder to fly as they're more complicated to operate. I read he crashed an ICON A5 which is an amphibious plane. I also read he just got his license so being relatively inexperienced and performing water take-off/landings seems a bit foolish to me. I didn't do proper spin/aerobatics training for a while much less something like that.

Back when MVP baseball was around, I would always draft Halladay to my franchise. He’d be the only guy I pitch with and I would simulate between starts. Watched him make a rehab start in Lakewood when he was a Philly. Watched both his perfect game and no hitter from start to finish as I was living in the Philly market for college at the time. Legitimately my favorite pitcher of all time. Don’t think many people appreciated how dominant he was in Toronto because they stunk.

He was 18-5 against the Red Sox and Yankees in the years where they won the division every year. 18-5........he deserved so much fucking better from those idiots running the Jays at the time. I'm still just devastated.

First playoff game he throws a perfect game after coming so close with the Jays a few times. Us not letting him pitch in the playoffs was the ultimate disservice to him. I'm sick.

EDIT: No hitter in the playoffs, he threw a perfect game earlier that year.

Eh, it’s close. Depends what century you consider Pedro and Randy Johnson since their greatness overlapped. There’s a lot of great ones. In my life time, which is a slightly different conversation, I rank the top 5:

1. Pedro
2. Kershaw
3. Maddux
4. Unit
5. Clemens

And that’s pretty interchangeable. Wouldn’t argue with anyone who has a different order.

After that, I’d have

6. Halladay
7. Johan
8. Glavine
9. Schilling

And about 20 pitchers that tie for 10th

Complete games are cool but there’s too many outside factors that play a role: managerial approach, bullpen talent, bullpen usage in recent games, NL has no DH, era in which you play, offensive run production, etc. Nearly 20% is freakish though.

Stay classy Boston

https://deadspin.com/boston-sports-radi ... 1820270092

On a positive note, my best Doc memory should have ended in my divorce. We were in Sorrento on our honeymoon the night of his playoff no no. It was a five pm local start which is midnight in Italy I think, anyways I get a gchat from my only buddy who uses gchat saying, "Dude can you believe this game?" It's around 1 in the morning . My response was, "How drunk were you at my wedding, I'm in Italy right now." "Shit that's right, well I can't say anything but just look up the box score" "holy shit, holy shit! Okay finding a stream"

Long story short I watched the last half of that game on the balcony of the best, and most expensive, hotel in Sorrento, where they only have rooms on one side of the building to guarantee everyone has a balcony view of the bay. And there I sat, cigar in one hand, insanely good italian wine in another, laptop up with the stream of the game, watch Doc throw a no hitter in game one of the NLDS. All while my newlywed wife, a Mets fan, slept.

As a hilarious side note, it was so fitting that he threw a no no, because no no was the theme for the first week of the honeymoon. Thanks mother nature!

Look up some stories of his workouts, prep, post game stuff. The dude was a fucking machine. He'd get to the park hours ahead of anyone and run the stairs in the stadium, he'd throw a complete game and then go hit the gym after. He was a mutant plain and simple.
