He still had a great year and was one of the most productive players on the Rangers. Your expectations for him might be a bit unreasonable.

He brings a ton of negatives that don't show up in the box score though. I don't want him back even if he's free

4 teams within a game for best record in the AL but also can end up playing in a WC game. The Tigers are the only team guaranteed a post season game at this point. The next 2 days should be great, here is what i'm hoping for;

A's win the West
Yanks/O's tie for the East
Yanks/Rangers in the WC game.

1 down
2 to go

Beltre was this year.

Daniels needs to slap some sense into Washington or just get rid of him. How did he not at some point in the season just go "Ron, what the hell is wrong with you? Stop playing Young."

I know not everyone is a believer in WAR, but I believe Young had the second worst WAR this season right after Frenchie on the Royals

He's not a terrible player in general but he is bad. And if you give a bad player enough playing time, it will add up significantly hence the WAR. I mean he got over 600 plate appearances this year!

Great job A's! will probably root for them if/when Tigers go home.

With Trout being 0-1 wouldn't surprise me if Cabrera stopped playing after the first inning.

Red Sox suck
Looks like A's/Tigers in Detroit on Saturday

Milone/Parker for games 1 and 2 i would guess

Tigers are the only team i feel that is on par with our pitching if not better, not the best match up but we'll see.
