    Been a very good year ! I have heard and watched quite a few games. And the trade dead line is actually really interesting, too. The American classic is still going strong.

    Absolutely! There has been quite a few great stories so far. The latest being the Pirates winning 11 in a row. The Braves and Phillies have been a surprise. I'm sure all 3 will make some moves before the trade deadline.

    Yes, this has been a good year for America's favorite pastime. The one downside is allowing & even paying A-Rod to be an announcer & commentator for MLB. This piece of trash should not even be allowed to enter a ballpark, major league, minor league or little league. It was bad enough for him to lie about using steroids but then when he couldn't deny it he snitched on his fellow players. MLB black balled Pete Rose for much less. I remember his first at back when he returned from his light suspension he was intentionally hit but just not hard enough.

    Not a Yankee fan but I did like Jeter A-Rod never , Also Pete should be able to come off the list that's just not right, Bonds is another that should have been caught, biut what do I know I'm a Tigers fan

    Don't get me started in A-Roid!! Makes it hard to watch the Sunday night game on ESPN! How he can be part of any baseball game is beyond me. ESPN should be ashamed of themselves for ever hiring this CHEATER!

    Still a few days till the trade deadline. Alot of teams making moves. Going to be interesting.

    All of these guys are cheaters. They will win any way they can. They make millions to do it.

    The trades have been amazing. Really good races shaping up.

    Was hoping for outfield help. We ( Cleveland Indians ) trade for Martin from the Tigers. Now he is on the DL. Can't get no luck.

    And now Encarnacion is hurt. Not liking this at all. At least the division is so weak that it doesn't matter. But I wish we could just get a few guys healthy and at least show up in the playoffs.

    The yankees are scared. They're trying everything they can to win that 1 game wild card game. I do like Cutch but he's not the same as he was in his younger days in Pittsburgh. He does great impressions!

    As far as Cleveland...too early to tell. I love the pickup but have to be patient. Donaldson is an awesome young player. I think Cleveland will be just fine. Time will tell.

    Going to be a great September!

    I can't wait for the playoffs ! Some real monsters out there. The Dodgers and Brewers really beefed up with trades.

    TRIBE won the central around the all star break. We gonna cruise into a sweet spot. And then it's all about how far we can push into the post season.

    I must say. This has been a fantastic season. And the playoffs are lining up to be some of the best match ups in years.

    So, after 162 games, there are 2 ties? Are you kidding me? Playoff baseball before playoff baseball! Love it!

    Great move by the Twins to have Joe Mauer play catcher to end his career. Classic move!

    And for the Mets to honor David Wright the way they did. Class move!

    This is why BASEBALL is the best sport. Those that cannot understand...never will!

    4 playoff games today...feels like the opening round in March Madness!
    Days like today make me really hate working nights. At least I'll catch 2 of them tonight!
    Got a feeling Stros vs.Tribe is going to be a classic.

    That was disappointing. Kluber looked like :shit:. Our outfield defense is terrible. The bull pen might as well just go home. And. Verlander is good. Like. Really good.
