David Price's teams are now 0-10 in his playoff starts.
Of all pitchers in MLB history to make 10+ playoff starts, Price is the only one that has failed to help lead his team to even a single victory.
I wonder if this whole "playoff" thing has evolved into some kind of mental block for him. Maybe seeing a sports psychologist would be helpful to him (look at the kind of turnaround Justin Smoak has had in his career after some visits to a sports psychologist).
Is anyone feel a lot more interested in AL baseball as opposed to the NL version? I just feel like the AL has better baseball. AL has much more talent. I wonder if anyone else feels this way?
The brewers are very entertaining, but yeah, arguably the 4 best teams are in the AL.
I hope the NL adopts the DH rule.
I’d like to make a comment about this but I’ll let someone else do it.
Price wasn't that bad in his run with us, got really unlucky with the Goins dropped ball game and the game 6 that should have went to game 7 (fan interference KC home run, horrible strike calls on Revere, still made about it).
suck it, Machado.
Also why the hell didn't he at least try to run for 1st on the ball to the backstop on the K? He just sort of sulked and figured "I'm out anyway, so why bother?"
Lansing's roster should look really good next year.

Wow, Houston blew those guys away. Cleveland can't get it done in the playoffs except that one year. I wonder what is next for Donaldson? A disastrous year for him all and all.
Donaldson with a solid .091 batting average in the playoffs. His days of being a game changer are gone. EE af least batted .100
Donaldson would be smart to sign a heavy incentive deal with an AL team. Cleveland, Boston and New York would be ideal.
But whoever loses out in Machado he might go there. Philly, can’t forget about St. Louis. Braves with AA isn’t out of the question too.
No way of verifying this but I'd bet that Donaldson's best chance for money this off-season was behind the bridge he burned on his way out of Toronto.
It's unfortunate - given JD's year, he most likely loses some money on his next contract, and the Jays end up getting little for him
Glad things worked out as they did for Donaldson. Will teach him that no one is larger then the team!!!!
Sorry, but management is a bunch of clowns who got 0 back for a talent like Donaldson. Thought they could compete for a 2nd wild card. Morons.
Not sure if this was already shared here but it's a worthwhile read for Jays fans

Had Donaldson not sat out all season we maybe could have contended. I wouldn't call management morons for banking on a superstar player being healthy. He was at his allstar, MVP self for the last 3 months of last season. Donaldson screwed us, refused to partake in the Jays way of rehab and because of this disagreement screwed over the Jays.
There was no reason for Jays management to not think a healthy Donaldson would keep us in the hunt this past season. Putting blame on management is false..sorry.
The important thing is that you hate one of Donaldson or management and put 100% of the blame on one side or the other.
Certainly the most intelligent way to go about things.
Would probably push to deal Pillar given that his value has essentially plateaued, and be willing to hold onto Giles and Stroman to see if they have good starts to the season. If they have performances closer to 2017 than 2018, they both fetch significant packages.
Yeah it probably won’t be a popular move with Pillar, but it’s the right one
Vlad was 3 for 5 with two doubles and 3 RBIs in his first Fall league game. I cannot wait until next year when he is up.
Really interested in how Pearson does
How does Stroman jump 7.2 million if he gets it. He was awful
Yea I think pillar will be moved if they can find some value for him.
They are just going to wait till the asset gets completely diminished and then trade him for peanuts.
