Not sure if a spelling error or a clever portmanteau for behavioral issues that go viral afterwards
Astros have a lot of jerks. Cole in it for himself. No grieving period?
Grienke is a borderline sociopath.
Osuna beat up his gf.
Hopefully that team falls apart.
Def. didn't like how often they admired and watched their HR's, pretty vain
If they were hockey players and admired and watched their passes like that... OUCH, month-to-month with LBI+UBI+attitude adjustment
One thing is certain... Washington DC teams must now hold the all time record for being flashed in championship games.
Bura would have jumped the fence!
Man oh man what a fun season. From the dumpster fire of a bull pen and Tony Two Bags having an MVP season. The playoffs were one of the best magical rides I’ve ever been on.
And Straus? One of the best ever pitching performances. Ever. Man what a joy to watch.
Now if they can start selling those damned blue Playoff jerseys.
what a dick....
I started caring a little more about the Nats when Scherzer and Zimmerman were geared up for the Cup Finals
Me too. I never cheered for the Nats even though I was a huge Expos fan.
They won me me over by supporting the Caps the way they did.
Me three. Except the Expos fan part.
Lol. Well, they were very entertaining back in the day. Super budget team that drafted and developed players well.
new DC tradition seems to be damaging trophies
Congratulations Nats fans!!!!
Me as well.
Harper being completely clueless that maybe wearing Knights gear to a Final game in D.C. wouldn’t be received well sort of blew me away. So glad he is gone, makes the team a lot easier to root for without that tool on it.
From what I read he was pissed he wasn't the one to relieve Grenke but yeah the guy is a pecker head.
Would have been ironic if he had blown out his arm on 2 days rest. Also, Cole had never made a relief performance before.
The guy is a classic "me first" player.
Complete idiot but he wasn't wrong. Hinch screwed up there.
And for sure he is a "pecker head" but he about to be a very rich pecker head:
I don’t know. It seemed pretty common throughout the playoffs that if a starter was being brought in as a reliever it was to start an inning not in the middle with runners on base. I’m not saying there weren’t exceptions but that was the general theme.
Harris’ numbers were better than Cole’s both in the regular season and playoffs up to that point. Under the circumstances choosing Harris over Cole made perfect sense IMO. Didn’t work out but I understood that call.
Now taking Greinke out at all after he owned the Nats up to that point because of one mistake and then a walk was a panic move by Hinch. At that point I said thank God and couldn’t have cared less who replaced him. I was just glad he was out.
Why is Greinke a sociopath?
Grienke was open about psych issues but that doesn't make him sociopath
At parade rn
Parade day but also today is day 3 after the end of the season. Final day for Strasburg to decide whether to opt out or not. Oh the drama.
I heard about how he treated AJ Ellis when he was with the Dodgers.
AJ Ellis was Grienke's personal catcher in LA. Ellis asked Grienke how they could be better. Grienke told him he'd get back to him. The next day he tells Ellis, "I've been crunching the numbers. We need more offense out of the catcher. So, we need to replace you. "
I am not unsympathetic to someone who has an anxiety disorder but Grienke has bigger issues than anxiety.
They can extend the deadline
