I hope this thread gets locked before the World Series.

All kidding aside, I’m rooting for the Metsies.

The longest World Series drought for two teams that played in the same World Series is Oakland and Cincinnati in 1990.

Mariners winning the World Series right after this drought would be very Mariners. I don't think it will happen, though.

If the Ms do make it to the postseason, the city is going to go nuts.
They're the only team who has never been to a World Series, so I would love to see them shed that.

I would as well, because it looks like my Royals (again) won’t be making the playoffs…
Thirded! I hope the Mariners make at least one World Series trip before I die, so that MLB can stake its claim to being the only sports league with all of its teams having played for a championship.

I don't see how that's relevant. The comparison was between the four sports, not city by city.

Any discussions about the Kraken should be done in the Hockey thread. And they just completed their first season, so they need some time to build a roster that can contend for a title.

Back to the subject at hand: The pennant race starts today, and as it is, the Yankees, Astros, Mets and Dodgers are currently sure bets to get into the postseason, with the other division leaders being the Twins and Brewers. As for the wildcard, the four leaders are the Rays, Mariners, Braves and Padres. But anything can change, so let's see how it all plays out.

I think the Orioles will make it to 2nd in the AL East
As of this writing the entire East is over .500 and we're over 90 games into the season. Has this ever happened this late to a single division for all 5 teams?

The Red Sox have lost their last 3 games by scores of 14-1, 13-2, and tonight (ouch) 28-5.  They are still 48-46 but sure looking like a team that is going to trade away some of their players at the deadline and stagger through August and September to a losing season.

Well the thing is I'm having a hard time figuring out how the Kraken even got brought up. You mentioned that you'd like to see the Mariners play for a championship so you could lay the claim that all 30 MLB teams have played for a championship. I don't see where that has anything to do with the Kraken or the NHL which has more than one team that hasn't played for a championship. Arizona never has, same with the current Winnipeg Jets, Columbus, Minnesota and Seattle so that is 5 so no idea why the Kraken got brought up when the NHL has 5 teams that have never played for a championship and the Mariners are the only MLB team that never has.

The Kraken came up because someone commented how the Mariners are the only current MLB team to have never played in the World Series, and if they did MLB would have achieved having all 30 franchises appear which would be a first in the major sports leagues to have all teams appear in the championship round. Someone else then misinterpreted the comment as "MLB is the only sports league that *hasn't* had all teams appear" and tried to refute it by bringing up the Kraken, which is where the confusion started.

Has Willson Contreras played his last home game at Wrigley Field? Pretty soon, there'll be no more members of the 2016 World Series champions that are still on the team. I blame most of this on the fire sale last year that saw the exits of Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez. On the upside, I hope they don't go another 108 years until their fourth title, and that no other team goes that long before winning another one. (The clock is ticking, Guardians...)

I have never liked Javier Baez and have always thought he was a hot dog. Anyway Tigers fans say you can have him back because he isn't doing good in Detroit at all. I say don't do that and let the Tigers keep him since I'm not a Tigers fan and a fan of a divisional rival of theirs and a major rival of the Cubs, the White Sox. Not liking Baez really had nothing to do with him being a Cub just I don't like his personality at all.

As a Brewers fan I'm trying to see the logic.  I get after 2023 Hader is a FA and most likely the Brewers can't afford him.  But then as a team in a pennant chase you would think they'd get something that you could say their current roster as is gets better.  Williams can close but they got nobody that looks like they can help the 2022 club on offense, and the closer they got in return while saved practically the same amount of games as Hader has lost his role even before this trade happened.

I hope the young players work out, but for a team in a win now mode it's gonna be hard to convince fans to really support this trade.

The trade deadline is tonight at 6. As it is, Willson Contreras is still a Cub, Juan Soto is still a National, and Shohei Ohtani is still an Angel. The big question is, will any of these players be traded to other teams?

Just an idea: can a team get a bit more for their trade if they trade away someone currently on base (especially third)? If so, does someone replace him, or is the player considered out? I do understand that the player the team receives can't play in that game, as the player lists are decided before the game starts.

More likely is that another team (likely the team they're playing against) makes a higher offer to try to get the player off base.
