The M's are 26-8 since July 24; nice

And the Royals and A's have been bottom-dwelling brothers, below every other team in games above .500, since April 29.

They can threaten all they want they will never leave Chicago. I don't think it would get approved anyway.

Apparently Jerry wants to go to Nashville, but Nashville doesn't want them  :-D They want to start a new franchise.

What a shitshow of a franchise, would be the worst run baseball team in 2023 if it wasn't for the A's saga though the Royals are just as bad

You know, we would've said the same thing about the Giants and Dodgers when both teams were in New York (or, for the latter, Brooklyn), and they still bolted for California. It's funny how often we take things for granted, only to lose them in the end.

True. Let us not forget the other team Reinsdorf owns in another sport.

No surprise here, the Braves were the first to clinch, and it's their 26th division title overall, the most ever. (Take that, Yankees and Dodgers!)

I know in the Yankees case they are in a much tougher division historically and the Yankees have won that division 20 times. The Braves only have two titles for all those division titles. Major choke artists in the postseason.

Shame about Shohei Ohtani. The Angels need to send him elsewhere during the offseason.

He will be a free agent. He can send himself anywhere he wants.

That the Angels have both Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani and have thoroughly mismanaged both is criminal.

Add the Dodgers, Orioles and Rays to the postseason party! I'm happy for Baltimore, which has its first appearance since 2016 (coincidentally the same season that saw the end of the Billy Goat Curse and a 108-year championship drought for a certain favorite team of mine).

Last week, the Boston Red Sox fired Chaim Bloom, their Chief Baseball Officer. He had done a decent job restocking the farm system, but made other questionable and unpopular moves (trading Mookie Betts). But the straw that broke the camelís back was the number of fans from opposing teams who showed at Fenway when the Dodgers played the Sox, and when Yankees-Red Sox tickets allegedly sold for pennies on the dollar (relatively speaking).

It's certainly great for Orioles fans who have watched some dreadfully hideous baseball for most of this century.  The team basically tanked for draft position for several years, and that Kevin Brown fiasco a couple months ago reminded a lot of us that some of the people at the top of the organization are an embarrassment to themselves, the city and Major League Baseball.

It's kind of crazy that the Nationals won the 2019 World Series and they haven't had a season where they have finished over .500 or at .500 since.

Change that to the Royals and 2015 and other than finishing at .500 in 2016, they've been (way) under ever since.

That's what can happen when a team goes "all in" for one season.  They deplete their farm system in trades and blow a lot of cash on short contracts for free agents. It leaves them wanting for resources for many seasons after.

Yeah them too but they kind of came out of nowhere and had a three year run then went back to their normal ways again. With the Nationals they had been good for awhile and then fell off the tank after winning.
