    Cannot believe there was not a running Major League Baseball thread here. Thought baseball was more popular than that.

    Anyway, here we go! Starting this because I just saw Edgar Martinez has finally been selected to be in the Hall Of Fame! It seems way past tie for that to happen!

    Here are all the inductees:

    Edgar Martinez
    Harold Baines
    Mike Mussina
    Roy Halladay
    Mariano Rivera
    Lee Smith

    To say the Boston Red Sox are having a good weekend is something of an understatement. They have moved into second place in both the AL East and the Wild Card race. They have been hammering the Yankees this weekend. Seems unlikely they will sweep the Yanks all four games, but this has been impressive none-the-less.

    I am hoping that my Nationals don't choke down the stretch. I just want us to stick it to Harper and show him we don't need him.

    First time champions in MLB, NHL and NBA. That is cool.

    I hope the parade will be like how it was when the Caps won.

    Did the road team win every game? I am happy the Nats one, just so the gross ass Astros, and their open misogyny wasn't rewarded.

    Also Bryce Harper, Jesus Christ. :funny:

    Went to the parade for the Nationals. It was good probably almost as good if not better than when the Caps had theirs.

    Derek Jeter and Larry Walker are the 2020 class. Jeter missed out on an unanimous induction by one vote.

    Walker was long overdue and whomever didn't vote for Jeter should have their vote taken away.

    At first these advanced stats obsessive types kept Walker out of the HOF due to the Coors Field effect.

    But as time went on and stackwhacking became more advanced, they discovered that only three players in MLB history rank in the top 100 players ever in all three of offensive runs created, baserunning runs created, and defensive runs saved: Larry Walker, Barry Bonds, and Willie Mays. You put yourself on a three man list with Bonds and Mays, they can't deny your greatness.
