    Of course not. He doesn't play for the Dodgers. He's essentially ineligible.

      And, yeah, Sam...2018 Folty is back in evidence.

      • The rocking chair on the front porch is awaiting C.C. Sabathia. I mean, if you're 5 wins and 8 losses for the team that provides its pitchers with about the greatest run support of any team in history then you really should retire. The only statistical goals he might be able to reach before this season and his career ends are that he might be able to improve his standing from 17th on the all-time Strikeouts list with 3,080 Ks. he could pass John Smoltz's 3,084 Ks total on his next start to move into 16th place all-time and if stays in the Yankees rotation through the end of the season he has a chance to overtake Curt Schilling (3,116 career strikeouts) for 15th place all-time before "hanging them up".

          It's too late, LB. I've been watching the Mets for 10 years now, I guess I'm hooked. And the Mets, exasperating as they are, are rarely boring.

          Yes, our manager's a knucklehead, and our ownership is evil (they released Adeiny Hechavarría one day before he would have earned a $1 million bonus), but it's a joy to watch Jacob deGrom pitch, and Jeff Mcneil and Pete Alonso hit, and I can't see the Braves games anyway, so Let's Go Mets.
          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

            He's certainly not alone among players who don't know when to quit. The media has by and large "locked up" his HOF case–he'll get in easily. Chasing milestones is one thing, but when you become a detriment to the team's success it's time to stop; would there even be any desperately pitching-starved teams willing to take him on in 2020?

              The Dodgers have had one MVP winner in the last 30 years.
              My top 10 players:

              1. Babe Ruth
              2. Barry Bonds
              3. Ty Cobb
              4. Ted Williams
              5. Willie Mays
              6. Alex Rodriguez
              7. Hank Aaron
              8. Honus Wagner
              9. Lou Gehrig
              10. Mickey Mantle

                It's a race between Bellinger and Yelich. There's no doubt in my mind.
                46 wins to match last year's total

                    That's been my point the entire time. Articles saying Acuna is in the MVP race are wastes of bandwidth. Only Atlanta writers would vote him above Yelich or Bellinger.

                    • Today Ian Kennedy of the Royals pitched 1 inning, allowed 4 earned runs and got the win. Gotta love it.

                          I doubt you'd find many posts in BBF that argue that relievers wins are a great measure of their value.

                              Luke Jackson has seven of them. He spent several months of the season being despised by Braves fans.

                              • Bryce Harper has been tearing it up in August. He's slugging .675 with 10 home runs in 20 games. Tonight his season SLG% reached .500 for the first time since April 28th. Good for Bryce.
