except the astros have one of the better teams in the league right now

but anyway i mostly agree, a salary cap in the mlb would be great but it's unlikely

the lack of competition is why i'll never enjoy the mlb and much as the nhl but it's still fun to watch and i've followed the jays since i was a kid no matter how shit they were

i hope one of the jays, pirates, royals, astros, mets win in the next while though as there definitely seems to be more parity right now

it won't last though

small budget teams can maybe only have success cyclically (wait for cost-controlled core of players to get good, sell the farm to make the most of that window), but i wouldn't go so far as to say that parity is going to go away

exactly

greater parity these days may result from higher impact from younger players but inevitably without a salary cap budget teams will lose these players to free agency in time, most times

Fuck your "act like youve been there before" bullshit. He won the series with that home run. He had all the reason in the world to celebrate. Sorry that your shitty team was sitting at home watching. If you wanna be a little bitch and complain about a dude celebrating a home run in April, fine. But this is October. This is the big time.

I hate people who want athletes to act like robots all the time. How can you not enjoy seeing the emotion out there? Get bent, fucker.

First of all I hate Harper, and just because you do something to help your team does not give you the right to yell "Look at me, Look at me" yes, he won a game with a homerun, so have other people, like I said he acted like a bitch, I would say it is easy to show people up when youknow they have no chance to get you back. I would of hit the next guy up as hard as I could and then point at that prick, and said "that is for you", and then do it again. Didn't see that shit when Pitchers were allowed to pitch inside, do that to Bob Gibson, Koufax, Whitey Ford, Dave Stewert; you or the next guy in line would have gotten it.
