It's November 5th and we're still World Series champs.

 

The peasants always hate the ones at the top of the mountain.

At 48, that would explain their record.

Riggo, just drop it.  Not worth letting him take a minute of your post championship joy.  Unicorns and sunshine!  For real this time!  We're the freaking World Series Champions!

Yeah, I added him to the ignore list with that other virtue-signaling douchebag.

I like LBK more when he focuses his barbs on fundamentally corrupt franchises like the Redskins. It feels forced when he tries to extrapolate the agenda of a franchise working backwards from two players.

He cant. He needs to be the hero of this thread.

 

It's more a low tolerance for trolling dickbags trying to ruin our fun.

Toxic, joyless trolls remain toxic, joyless trolls no matter the subject.

 

You can stick a couple feathers into a pile of dog poop and fire it out of a catapult, but it’s no eagle.  Still just poop.

You can be just as annoying as the trolls you're trying to save us from. Its magnificent synergy.

 

Sometimes it's alright to let people tire themselves out. Not every "Slight" deserves a Normandy invasion.

I've been handing out reports as necessary. Let the mods deal with it instead of getting into the mud.

Ok, fair enough, I'll try to dial it back. It really isn't trying to be a hero, it's about meeting an asshole with, well, a bigger asshole.

 

Back to fun baseball stuff.

 

Great article on the narrative that Hinch blew it rather than the Nationals won it: https://tht.fangraphs.com/hinch-didnt-blow-it-the-nats-won-it/

 

Warning it does contain the words "his best reliever, Trevor Rosenthal," however not in reference to the Nats.

 

And I still love all you guys!

Morning folks 🙂

 

Message to all stick to  baseball and leave the handling of the local delinquents to MODs.

 

@Lombardi's_kid_brother Quit it. Any further contributions from you to this thread need to be constructive and add some value. Or just stay away.

Talk about beating a dead horse.  Go take your fake outrage elsewhere.  Sheesh.

Congrats on y'alls WS win.  Savor it, you never know how long it will be for another one, trust me :( 

 

Appreciate it!

 

I got my daughter up to watch the trophy presentation and celebrations for that very reason and dragged the whole family to the parade, knowing how long of a day it would be. I may never see another championship in my lifetime--definitely not one from the Redskins!

Hey, someone giving credit to the quality of our team instead of passing the blame onto the opposing manager! After all, how could the 93 win Nats possibly unseat the Dodgers or Astros without someone making it easy for them?

Hmmm....  So didn't even think about this.

 

https://www.foxbusiness.com/sports/washington-nationals-stadium-naming-rights-world-series

 

Quote

Nationals Park has operated without a naming rights deal since it opened its doors in 2008. Team executives sought a sponsor when the stadium was under construction in 2006 and again in 2016, but negotiations did not yield a suitable offer.

 

Naming rights deals can be a key source of revenue for sports teams, with high-end agreements generating as much as $20 million annually for franchises over a period often stretching for a decade or longer. While a World Series victory would not guarantee the Nationals a top-dollar deal, it could bring corporate partners interested in national exposure back to the table, according to Gemini Sports Group President Rob Yowell, who was involved in the franchise’s initial naming rights talks.

 

 

Honestly, I kind of like the generic Nationals Park name, but wouldn't really care if there's a corporate sponsorship, especially if higher revenue would help maintain a high payroll.

 

Somebody on reddit suggested Walgreen's as the corporate sponsor, lol.
