-eREKTion-1927 Yankees, 1997 Yankees, and the 2017 Dodgers are the best teams in baseball history. PERIOD. That's just statistics. Factor in the absolute dominance of our post season bullpen which HASTN'T ALLOWED A SINGLE RUN THROUGH 8 GAMES and this is the most exciting team of all time. Also, sure we've got a huge payroll but look at our stars it's not like we're just buying talent. Turner was NLDS and NLCS MVP and we signed him to a minor league contract after the Mets cut him. Chis Taylor was the co-MVP of the CS and only question he got asked is How did you get so good? He got good because we've got a great manager and a great team, he wasn't in a position to succeed in Seattle. Kike Hernandez hit 3 homers and makes significantly less than the league average. Puig, Pederson, Seager, and Bellinger are still on rookie contracts. This isn't a hired team, we fucking built it.
Slow your roll homie. I'm a baseball nerd regardless of personal biases, obviously my teams have choked as expected. As a Mariners fan, it's always impressive and repulsive to see what happens to a player once they are traded from the Mariners. Chris Taylor is just one of the more recent and more public examples of this disgusting, yet more frequent than imaginable phenomenon. What he's done compared to his tenure with the Mariners can't be put into words, and he's just one of the more recent examples. Transformation just doesn't begin to cover it; offensively or defensively.
The postseason is actually more fun when you don't have personal stakes involved haha.
There's no denying what the Dodgers have done this season. There is more top tier talent on that team to cover 3 mid level teams or more. Just saying it's a bit ridiculous that the "buy your championship" stigma is proving itself to be true this postseason with what is shaping up to be a Dodgers vs Yankees World Series.
Fuck the Yankees, let's go Dodgers!
