Yankees? I thought it was luck/Pythag records back in the day. This year, it's more of a Mets-like suckitude in that everything that could go wrong has.



Should this then become the official BJ's suck thread? :-? :-o

Perhaps. That's kind of entering into the Mets' hallowed ground on this board, though, isn't it?

Jays still have a chance. Every team goes through slumps. Look at how Milwaukee started..and how they are playing now.

Did you even read the article?
Its not about "still having a chance".
It about being 7 and 9 games behind 2 really good teams, with another 2 pretty decent teams also ahead of them all in their own division.
History tells us that they are already out of the playoffs, even with the 2nd wildcard.


Did you read the article? The article was irrelevant to the current Jays. How many of those teams with weak April records were favored to win their divisions' pre season? So a lot of bad teams, started off bad and finished bad. Big whoop. The article isn't nearly as damaging as it thinks it is.

And what "really good" teams are those? Did you predict the Yankees and Red Sox would be this good by May? Do you think Boston will finish with an OPS of .800 and an ERA of 3.50 by season's end? Do you think the Jays will have a .690 OPS by season's end? Come on.

I'm not even that much of a homer regarding this.. though I am from Toronto. I don't think the Jays' players are all going to have their worst seasons of the past 3 years (by .OPS and XFIP) which is kind of where they stand now.

In the past 3 years there are have been so many unexpected events, both regarding individual players and teams that you can't really rely on historical data.

Jays not out of it yet..give it until July at least before making conclusions.

I knew he was making fun of my name... so I just ignored it.

To answer the question, OBP is crucial in real life baseball. It still being largely ignored by many teams. It's still an easy way some bad teams could improve.

In fantasy, it can be somewhat unbalancing depending on what other categories are used.
