You've pointed out some sort of invisible bias in the media against the Yankees a couple of times now. Stop being delusional.

@sunsfan1357 to be fair, David Wells is usually very pro Yankee. But he wasn't doing the broadcast during the game.


This just in: TBS will be playing 2 hours of Oriole highlights.

I don't think there's an anti-Yankee bias as much as people appreciating what the Orioles did this season. I can see how its skewed for people actively cheering for the O's, but the Yanks still get as much media attention (good and bad I guess) as ever.

No he's been average, and fielder has been pretty good; he got robbed a couple times on good defensive plays.

Cabrera isn't the best offensive player, he's the best hitter.

Best overall offensive player is Mike Trout, or at least tied with Miggy.

Anyways, Bryce Harper might **** around and have a cycle in a do or die game as a teeenager in the playoffs. Incredible.

Trout's value is as a defensive player. You're an idiot if you think he's a better offensive player. I mean he's a 250 hitter since July. Pitchers seem to have his number since his first go around. It's likely that 130 pt drop in BA would have happened even sooner if he played the month of April.

Pretty silly to think otherwise.

They have the same wRC+ which is pretty much the gold standard in determining overall value as an offensive player.

The difference between them is the defensive side of the ball, which is why Trout has such a huge lead in WAR and deserving of the MVP over Cabrera.
