Firstly, a confession...my previous topic on the 2018 MLB Season has gone missing, or was merged somewhere. We tried to get it back (you know, the serious admin guys @refresh and @MoeFOH were called in) we did get it back, that was about a month ago and tonight I can't find it. Perhaps it's meant to be as guaranteed one cannot get Steve (or MoeFOH) to post into this topic while the Boston Red Sox are having the season they're having and while they are still alive in the postseason. Oh, and don't post message him either, he's probably in the corner somewhere most mornings (Brisbane time) watching the Red Sox take on their good friends the Yankees from the corner of his eye while working with his other eye. Anyway...seriously folks, how good has this season been? How did your team go? Who will make the World Series? I've been following the postseason this last week and it's been great, we've had some compelling games. Will Milwaukee actually keep winning (they've won their last 11 games)? Will Houston sweep tomorrow or will Cleveland comeback from 0-2 down? (It's happened 10 times before). Will Atlanta beat Los Angeles in Game 4 to force a decider? What the heck will happen in Game 3 at Yankee Stadium between the Red Sox and Yankees? So many questions!!! How did my team go? Well...the Mets were 11-1 to start the season, then everyone who could play decided to get injured. Okay, so some of these guys came back (like Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier) and others took the rest of the year off (I'm thinking of you Juan Lagares, Travis d'Arnaud et al.) Were did the Mets find a guy like Jeff McNeil so late in the season. why did he not play sooner? David Wright came back and I saw it live (ok...on TV), I couldn't care about the result for once, but we waited over 2 years for him to finish off his career in style. What a send-off! I hope Jacob de Grom wins the National League Cy Young award. I wonder if Blake Snell will win the American League Cy Young award. Will Mookie Betts be the American League MVP? Will Christian Yelich be the National League MVP?
Another year, another season friends! How is your team doing this year? Here's some of my questions thus far... Can the Yankees replicate their Spring Training form and win the AL East? Can the Houston Astros or Seattle Mariners breakthrough this year? Can the Cubs repeat their fine form from 2016 (and what a World Series it was!) Why has Atlanta bought two 40+ aged pitchers this year (R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon)? I mean, I love these guys, but two on your team? Will the New York Mets actually hit this year? It's frustrating watching them hit, on the flip side, I enjoy their pitching and I don't mind Lugo and Gsellman, but I don't know what to make of Zack Wheeler's return from injury, yet! How is your team going to go?
