Q
Who are your picks for the World Series? And which players win the season awards?
A

Right now I see an all-bird Series, but that may very well change in a couple of days. As for awards, I’m often wrong about these things, but these choices seen pretty solid :

AL MVP: Mike Trout
NL MVP: Clayton Kershaw (I know, pitchers almost never get MRI, but c’mon)

AL Cy Young: Hernandez or Kluber, but probably Hernandez
NL Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw

AL ROY: Jose Abreu
NL ROY: Jacob deGrom

Like I said, these all seem like pretty safe bets, but anything can happen in baseball.


Q
Sorry this is a few days late, but here is my lowlight for the season: Even though ‪#‎RedSox‬ fans have become spoiled over the past decade, I have to say the way the guys played this season was a definite downer. Just the fact that knowing that there would be no chance for postseason play two months before the season was over is incredibly daunting. But, if we can go from the bottom to the top like 2013, we can do it again!

One of the great things about baseball is that after waiting out an extra-long winter, come Opening Day, we know our favorite team has a legitimate shot at winning it all.

With a little ground ball through the box, Ichiro Suzuki makes history when he breaks the major league record for hits in a single season. Suzuki’s historic hit surpasses George Sisler’s 84-year-old mark of 257 hits established in 1920 with the St. Louis Browns.

Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente doubles off the Mets’ Jon Matlack to become the 11th major leaguer to collect 3000 hits. The hit will prove to be his last as he will die in a plane crash on New Year’s Eve.

My highlights include: King Felix breaking/setting the ER record. Lloyd McClendon, SF being in the playoffs, Robinson Cano, Lincecum’s 2nd no-no, & Kershaw’s incredible season.
