re: Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins - The Seaward
Three Rings and Mourning Sounds were both really good. Didn't really listen to the other two singles. I'll likely get the album tomorrow. The reviews are strong thus far. The next four weeks are absolutely stacked-- Grizzly Bear, The War on Drugs, LCD Soundsystem and The National. Four of the top...

re: The War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding - The Seaward
It's a good track. I enjoyed it. But even the Real Estate tracks I like most don't get the blood flowing for me like the average WoD song, much less a Red Eyes. Different strokes....

re: The Dodgers will go the way of the 2001 Mariners and not make the World Series - The Seaward
[quote]Yankees had a whole team... The Mariners had who? A Rod, a rookie Ichiro, Edgar, and other mediocre players no one remembers[/quote] ARod wasn't even on the Mariners that year. Bret Boone had the best overall year of any player. You don't win 116 games with a +300 run differential with an ...

If anyone is planning on buying the mp3 album when it is released, you can pre-order it on Amazon or iTunes for $7.99 and you get the songs already released now (although iTunes doesn't give you Thinking of a Place now)....

re: Chris Sale AL MVP chances - The Seaward
By the way, Mike Trout hit .083/.267/.333 in the 2014 divisional series. That is small sample size noise that means nothing, but if we are going to act like Madison Bumgarner losing game 3 to Doug Fister is relevant, I'll add it....

re: Chris Sale AL MVP chances - The Seaward
[quote]Oh the Madison Bumgarner who pitched one game in game three of the 2014 NLDS and was the losing pitcher to Doug Fister? Failing to see your point. Bryce Harper impacted the 2014 NLDS more than Bumgarner[/quote] You fail to see my point that 2014 Madison Bumgarner proves how valuable a pitc...

re: Chris Sale AL MVP chances - The Seaward
FIP based WAR isn't perfect. Nor is RA-WAR. FIP gives pitchers no control for balls in play. That obviously isn't correct. RA gives pitchers all credit for balls in play. That obviously isn't correct. No one knows the exact amount that is the pitcher and the defense for balls in play. I typically li...

re: Chris Sale AL MVP chances - The Seaward
[quote]But you are willing to take a flawed statistic and say hes the most valuable player in the AL[/quote] WAR isn’t perfect, but no stat is. And it is much more robust and scientific than “a pitcher can’t be MVP”. And I’m fine if someone chooses Altuve. I don’t really think there is a wrong an...

re: Chris Sale AL MVP chances - The Seaward
[quote]So if the greatest pitcher to ever exist never won the MVP that should illustrate how special of a season it takes to win MVP as a pitcher [/quote] All I take from that is that voting in the past was terrible. No point in continuing to using flawed standards just because that's always the ...

[quote] Pedro only had 1 season in boston with a higher ERA in the steroid era. Rocket had a 1.93 ERA and didnt win the MVP. [/quote] Peak Pedro is the greatest pitcher of all-time. I don't think a pitcher should have to match his prime to win the MVP. Just like a hitter doesn't have to match 200...

[quote]His ERA is very good-but not historic. [/quote] He plays in possibly the best division in baseball in a hitters park in a season where the all-time homerun record will be shattered. I wouldn't expect his ERA to match Koufax's from the mid 60s....
