If they make the playoffs, this would have to be one of the biggest single season turnarounds in baseball history.

Hell, even if they didn't make the playoffs it would have to be.



They have had the best record in the AL for more than 2 months. Plug that into the analytics spreadsheet and draw your own conclusion. This team just might be that good. I think they are.

Some people need to get over themselves and embrace what's happening right now. It's never good to wish for your team to lose just to prove you were right. Sometimes it's better to say you were wrong and move on.

Hyde has to win MOY. Can’t see any plausible argument for anyone else.

Servais will get it if Sea mkes the playoffs. Hyde could take it if we make the playoffs but if we dont I think Servais gets it

Fell asleep right when they resumed play.

I'll watch the highlights on MLB.

How many 100 mph pitches did our new closer throw?

No one predicted this. Not even close.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I think that's the best hitting team we can put out there. Hopefully we can pull out a late inning surprise against their bullpen.

It worked the last time I said this because the pitching matchup looked pretty bad.


Well done.

I haven’t seen a single person wishing for the team to lose.

Damn, decided not to wait out the rain but was hoping for a comeback.  Finding out it actually happened is wild.  Team is playing with so much confidence.

 

Odor does have a tendency to atone for some of his mistakes at really big times. I think this is at least the second time he's hit a big homer after giving away some runs earlier in the game.

Yeah, we made the same decision. Too damned old to sit through long nighttime rain delays. Got home just in time to see the 4th run and enjoyed Odor's redemptive HR in the comfort of my home.

No one is rooting for the team to lose.  We're all enjoying the ride!

This team fears no other team.

I think that sums it up best.   They can take a punch as well as any team in baseball and have gotten good at delivering them.

Extremely odd. Spent plenty of time in Toronto when I lived in Buffalo.

They’re loud mouthed. But I don’t think any of them would get in your face if you retorted.
