Major League Baseball overcome by emotion during its final week

MLB experienced both celebratory and tragic goodbyes this week with the retirement of legendary broadcaster Vin Scully and the death of pitcher José Fernández. Plus, a review of Major League Baseball’s have nots

On Friday night in Los Angeles, I sat next to my father inside Dodger Stadium. My dad, Mike Lengel, is a 75-year-old lifelong fan of the Dodgers, who grew up in New York city watching Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider and the team of his childhood play in Brooklyn. But until Friday, he had never been been to LA or visited Dodger Stadium, where the team landed after leaving in 1957.

How the Chicago Cubs lost Game 7 of the World Series

Baseball’s commissioners are still convinced it’s OK to let All-Stars decide who gets home field advantage in the World Series. Plus, happy birthday Goose, should the Red Sox fire John Farrell, and are the Cardinals finally out of luck?

It’s a freezing cold October night in Cleveland, but the crowd are on fire for Game 7 of the World Series against the Cubs.

The MLB trade deadline could be a bust – but expect a scramble for Cole Hamels

The only sure thing is that Philadelphia remain in the driving seat as long as they have Cole Hamels. Elsewhere, expect even more low-level trades than last year

It could be one of the best trade deadlines in recent memory. Or absolutely nothing of note could happen, and we could once again be left cursing GMs for not trading away their futures for a big splash. If I had to guess, however, I’d say on the whole it ends up looking vaguely like other recent deadlines – but perhaps with even more low-level buying, selling, and spare-part swapping in the weeks leading up to July 31.

We should get one thing out of the way first: the Philadelphia Phillies were not only right not to trade Cole Hamels over the winter, a fair number of you out there probably owe some Phillies fans – or at the very least, common sense – an apology. Hamels isn’t the best pitcher in the NL this year (that goes to some slate of Max Scherzer, Jake deGrom, and Zack Greinke – yes, Greinke, not Kershaw – arranged as you see it) but he is the best pitcher in the NL, and possibly all of baseball, who is liable to be moving. And whereas everyone was screaming for Philadelphia to ship him off to Boston for guys from their third or fourth tier of prospects over the winter – and some people even saying Philadelphia should eat money on what’s quite a reasonable contract in this pitching market, with Hamels owed $23.5m over each of the next three years with a vesting option on the fourth, the Phillies have interest league-wide now from New York, Texas, Houston (Hamels would apparently block a trade here), and all sorts of places that aren’t Boston.

The Joy of Six: baseball managers gone wild

In the great tradition of managerial tirades, Cincinnati skipper Bryan Price went red on the media on Monday. Thankfully, there’s a lot more where that came from

There’s no particular order to this compendium, but since it’s Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price who brought us pennies from heaven with his Monday march on the Reds’ media, he’s in the top slot. If you’re keeping score at home, Price unleashed some 77 of these before their game in Milwaukee:

****.

I mean, this transcript is legendary #BryanPrice #Reds http://t.co/vULWsPBnzh pic.twitter.com/xwopSbA22P

They ought to fine that fat little Italian, too. He ordered it.

I have never ever since I’ve managed ever told a pitcher to throw at anybody, nor will I ever. And if I ever did, I certainly wouldn’t make him throw at a fucking .130 hitter like Lefebvre or fucking Bevacqua, who couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a fucking boat …
