Title: 2019 Season
Post by: Crewe on February 28, 2019, 11:07:55 AM
I have really high hopes for the Astros this year. We have a boatload of solid prospects, including pitchers in AA but I don't think they will make the big jump so the rotation isn't quite as strong as Id like right now, but who knows what spring will bring.

And to start my season, I fired up Bull Durham the other day  8)

All I want from this season is Vlad Jr to be called up. That's all. That's the only thing. I'm a Yankees fan and yet I want that more than a World Series and the dude's not even on my team.

My team will stink.  The Royals are only allowed to succeed when the owners are not paying attention.  Regrettably, they are paying attention and have returned to selling off all our valuable assets.

I don't think he will be called up. I mean, if he continues to murder the competition, the noise will be louder, but unless its a September thing or injury related, I kinda doubt it.
I read an article where the FO will try to tinker with his service time by delaying his callus, but we will see.

When KC ran through us with the 6 run 9th inning en route to the Series, even when losing a few, I didn't think the Royals would fall that fast.

All the Royals fans knew they would even while we were hoping they wouldn't.  If you look at what happened during the Brett era it's the same.  We are the best developmental program for the rest of the league.  We develop players so that we can trade them for other players we can develop.  Occasionally we accidentally keep the players too long and have a good season.  Its very tough to remain a fan of this team.

yea that's the Drayton McClane blueprint when he owned the team here too. Well, not early on, but he wrecked us with that 2005 WS team. It took a fire sale and new ownership to turn it around.
Hopefully it turns around.

My team will suck, and probably finish even worse in the Central than Rigg's Royals. The days of the Ilitches going after the high priced FAs are long gone, and the farm system needs time to rebuild.

And yet they'll still make it back to postseason glory before the Lions will.

To be honest, I forgot we were in the Baseball forum and thought this was about the Lions right up to "Rigg's Royals."

Obviously just blowing past the fact that it's the NFC North now, not Central.

Alright, branching this off the topic and seeing what responses I get...what would your three walk up tunes be?

1. My Shot - Hamilton Soundtrack
2. Hypnotize - Notorious B.I.G.
3. Walk - Foo Fighters

Bonus: if I were a closer, just because:

thank u, next - Ariana Grande 😝

ah, lemme think about this....

My quirky one would be
-Texas Bound and Flyin by Jerry Reed, if I played in Texas
-Baby I Call Hell by Deap Vally because it has a great grunge garage riff
-Rock n roll aint noise pollution by ACDC just because..

I could get way more creative with more time  :D

I live in Seattle, but I am a Yankees fan. Which is to say: the only thing I care about when I go to a Mariners game are: A) are the Yankees their opponent and B) if not, how cheap are the tickets?


All this winning is not helping B.

Gotta love when that works out.

As for Marcell Ozuna...well, this still isn't as embarrassing as some of Jose Canseco's escapades in the outfield, but it's up there.

that's great stuff lol

Thats clip also shows why I hate, I absolutely despise those panel highlight shows for any sport. You can't decipher anything because everyone has to talk at the same time, it's entirely annoying.
