A note regarding moderating of the gameday threads in 2019: As the disclaimer has always said, in the past, we have been very liberal in moderating the Gameday threads. They're meant to be a lot less formal than other threads on the forum, so to moderate them the same way would be silly. However, we do ask posters to maintain a certain level of decorum in these threads, and we plan on moderating the Gameday threads a little more actively this season. In particular, we ask that posters refrain from being overly repetitive with their posts (if you've made your point, let it go), refrain from monopolizing the discussion (if you are making more than a couple posts in a row, you probably need to slow down a little bit), and of course, follow the Ground Rules (link). The point is to make these threads worth participating in and fun for all posters, from our long-time fixtures to people just signing up today. -The Management

Not bad. I'd have the Rays lower than the Astros and Dodgers. The Dodgers because them winning would actually make people happy (unlike the Rays, who nobody actually likes), and the Astros because of Greinke.

1969, Expos and Seattle Pilots inaugural season. Brewers went to NLCS in '11 & '18. Those are the only 2 postseason series wins since '82 ... both teams combined. They have 4 series wins combined since '69. 100 seasons combined without a WS title.
As long as the Yankees or Cardinals don’t win it, I’m good most years. I am rooting for the Twins. They are my second favorite team if I had to pick one...not sure why. Beyond that, I’m not a huge Dodgers fan, but I would like to see Kershaw win a ring at some point. And my wife and I just moved to DC this summer, so I would like to see the Nationals do well.
When he was Oakland’s closer he was throwing 95 not 97
Correction he wasn't the Oakland closer he was working out of the bullpen, He had 9 starts and 44 games out of the bullpen that season and according to brooks baseball his average velocity on his 4 seam was 93

With all the talk about labeling Betts "generational" or otherwise, how about that Sosa kid for the Nationals? Between he and Acuna, they will probably spend the next decade or so battling for the MVP award and succeeding Mike Trout as the best players in the game.
Sosa is all of 20, has phenominal plate discipline, serious power, and an excellent hit tool.
