This trade deadline week has been crazy.

I'm sad to see my Cueto gone, but I can't complain about the Royals.  I hope he gets a ring.

That Tulo trade made so little sense for Colorado. I get that his all-but-begging to be traded away might be bringing the clubhouse down, but he's still a valuable asset when healthy - enough so that there were likely going to be much stronger offers on the table for him from teams willing to take that gamble. It just seemed like they threw in the towel with him and gave him a "Fine! You want to be traded? Here!" to the first suitor that came calling.

Also, since it hasn't been mentioned here yet: The Slide.

Dirty or not, I'm confused about how in the world he could be ruled safe (I'm not really, and he wasn't).

Given neither player, offense or defense touched the bag:

A) Neighborhood Rule
B) Reasonable path to the bag

- If it is ruled that a defensive player was carried away from the bag by the momentum of the play (thus (A) is not in effect), how can (B) still be true given the slide?

That is, if a player is close enough to the bag for a take out slide to be deemed legal, then by default he should be close enough for the Neighborhood Rule to apply.

You can't have both "Too far away for the Neighborhood Rule" & "Close enough to be considers going for the bag".

Utley was out - the only determination that should've been made is whether or not the batter-runner should've been ruled out as well over Utley interfering. If Tejada was too far away for the Neighborhood Rule to be in effect, then both Utley and the batter should've been ruled out. If Tejada was in fact close enough to the bag for the Neighborhood Rule, then Utley's slide, while high, hard and late, is just baseball.

Personally I feel that only Utley should've been ruled out. I didn't like the slide, and it's unfortunate that Tejada broke his leg, but both players were undoubtedly within the vicinity of the bag. Despite neither actually touching it, both could have with adjustments of inches. Tejada should've been awarded the out.

So the "slide" was really closer to a tackle. Utley started his slide past the base and went in rolling at the legs. A slide is generally feet or head first. But those types of moves are very inconsistently called. I've seen less egregious offenses be called interference, and worse ones not called. But I have never seen the lead runner called safe. It's beyond absurd. Also absurd, MLB suspended Utley. So tell me how a clean, non-interference slide deserves a suspension? Overall, it was an absolute terrible call, which may have cost the Mets the game, and if the Mets don't win the series, you'll be hearing a lot more about this call all winter.

At the barbershop, a 70 year old man and a 7 year old boy were each getting their hair cut in different chairs.  No relation.  I noticed each of them was talking to their respective barbers about baseball.

It was kinda cool.  I don't have any knowledge of baseball or anything to actually add to this thread.

I'll still root for the Mets over either AL club,  although it's close with the Royals.

I'm still pulling for the Jays to make it through. Glad the Mets are through for sure though. To be honest once it got to the final four teams I was already pretty happy.

The thing that made me laugh about this World Series is that Mini-Mart was the final batter.

On the Phillies, we had this utility player for three years (read: three years too long) named Michael Martinez who was just surprisingly bad. My dad did not like him; one time I literally heard him scream in the other room because Martinez was back on the team. He became somewhat of a meme among Phillies fans because of how bad he was, and we called him Mini-Mart because he was short.
Finally, he somehow left the Phillies and ended up on the Indians. When the Indians got to the Series, a lot of Phillies fans jokingly predicted that Mini-Mart would drive in the walk-off run in the last game of the World Series. So you can imagine our surprise when he was up with two outs in the 10th inning of Game 7, down by one run with runners on base. Was this finally Mini-Mart's moment? Would Phillies fans forever regret hating him? No, of course he grounded out and order was restored to the world of baseball. But for a brief moment all of us Phillies fans held our breath because Mini-Mart was somehow deciding the fate of one of the most important Series in the history of baseball.

The giant annoyance of this whole Cubs thing is that everyone is ignoring the fact that the Cubs were (are) the best team in baseball this year, and probably will be for the following decade.  They were universally (almost) chosen to win the World Series this year, so this win is the definition of the most anti-climactic ending to a season possible.

The Cubs were by no means the saddest team in baseball, and haven't been for quite some time.  They were in the playoffs last year, they'd won the division three times in the past twenty years (or less?). 

In the same way, the Indians were no sadder -- they got to lose the World Series in 1997.  At least they were an underdog rife with injuries and sadness.

I'm not a fan of either team, specifically, so no dog in this fight.  I'm happy for Bill Murray, though.
