***2019 Miracle Nationals WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS***

Recommended Posts

Only way Bellinger could have been more valuable than Rendon this year is if he had jumped a hundred feet in the air and caught Howie's grand slam. 

 

 

Bellinger doesn't spit in the face of momentum and the officials to keep the season going like Rendon did here.

1969 Senators pennant...50 years old & a bit worn.

Waiting for my 2019 Championship pennant to put next to it...

More HOU cheating vids being made...

 

 

Astros deserve to FRY.  I don’t know if they vacate the 2017 WS championship or hand out lifetime bans.

Now that I hear it in these videos, I feel like I heard it during the Nationals series....I remember wondering what the noise was and thought maybe it was those billboards moving

Because so much of the sign-stealing tracks back to the Astros and Hinch, I would ban Hinch from the league. On top of that, give the team a severe payroll cap in 2020 and take a couple first round picks away. They've been cheating for a few seasons, so they should be punished for a similar length of time.

Here is the accompanying video to Farquar's complaint, from Jomboy.

 

 


I think relegation would be best, but obviously that won’t happen. So, IMO 3-5 year post season ban, multiple draft pick ban, and life time bans to members involved.

Strasburg called them out on live national television in his interview on the field following game 6. I was floored and shocked that it was being discussed right then and there...I had always (mistakenly) thought calling an opponent a cheater on such a platform was a no-no.

 

But now you can go back to every Joe Buck and tv host comment about the Astros hitters taking pitches, never swinging, and grinding at-bats.

 

It makes me wonder about Scherzer's starts when their hitters grinded (ground?) him down.

I must have missed that interview. Do you have a link or a recap of what he said?

I think you're going to see everyone involved Hinch, Ludnow, Beltran (which would be soooo LOLMets), Cora, even the owner all get dinged with lengthy suspensions.

The former Braves GM Coppollela (sp) was banned for life for infractions regarding international signings. Tainting the World Series is far, far worse.

Oh yeah.  The longer it takes MLB to investigate this makes me think the harsher the penalties.  Haven’t heard anything.  Those guys have to be shaking in their boots right now.

I love how none of the Nationals won an individual honor.  Very cute.  Oh but look I found this trophy... Anyone know who it belongs to?

The 1969 trophy?  With the Seattle Pilots and the Washington Senators?

'69 was the miracle Mets. Started 18-30, went 100-62, won the World Series over the heavy-favorite Baltimore Orioles.

 

....I like the 2019 remake much, much better.

Yep, as an Orioles fan that one stings.  And it's not like I was around then.  But those Orioles teams were stacked and loaded, some of the best teams in history...but could only get one ring in that 3-4 years.

 

I agree though, I like 2019 much better. :)

Just goes to show--winning the World Series is really ****ing hard. I'd say second hardest behind the Stanley Cup (4, 7-game series is brutal).

it will be really interesting to see how hard the league comes down on them

 

Gotta come down hard. They spit on the game. If this was college, at bare minimum, you vacate their 2017 WS. Some folks also no longer deserve to be in the game on a professional level.
