whos gonna win next year


whos gonna win next year

because the world series is over now we can have a discussion of 3 months about who will win next year
ill start the Yankees are going to win the world series if they don't have a lot of players get hurt

Re: whos gonna win next year

The Dodgers are going to repeat

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

uh you got it wrong the dodgers won not the rays the yanks are gonna at least make it to the world series

Re: whos gonna win next year

the yankees haven't made it to the World Series in over a decade lol. but it's okay, the dodgers are the best team in baseball, but I guess they won't repeat

Re: whos gonna win next year

Jwbsavages your last comment makes no sense in this context

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

it wont be long before the white sox get that championship team.

Re: whos gonna win next year

yes eriko it will be a few decades before the white sox actually win

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

idk savages, they do have a very good young core

Re: whos gonna win next year

Abreu(Mvp),Robert,Eloy,grandal,moncada,madrigal seems like a pretty core. They just need to add a couple of SP under giolito and keuchel.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

As a W.Sox fan, I'll say if Kopech hadn't opted out this year, I think they would have gotten past the A's and then who knows. Assuming Robert and Eloy can take another step, they should be dangerous for a while.

Re: whos gonna win next year

If the Braves can add a starter to go with Fried and Ian Anderson along with the return of Soroka from his achilles injury....I like their chances as good as anyone.

They had the Dodgers on the ropes with 1 somewhat proven starter and just couldn't close it out. Would help if they can resign Ozuna but also no guarantee he can put up the same numbers he was on pace for this season. As he has always seemed streaky to me from season to season.

With or without him though I like their chances.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

They are pretty young as well. This year's post season experience should help moving forward.

Re: whos gonna win next year

yeah and tony la Russa is their manager

Re: whos gonna win next year

Do not understand the LaRussa hire at all! I mean I get that he and the owner are close, but I don't see how Tony is going to put this young team over the top. As an Indians fan, I love the hire because I see it not working.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

La russa has 3 world series titles so he has the experience ,and im 100% sure he is a improvement to renteria.

Re: whos gonna win next year

Will be an interesting off season, a lot of big name players will be let go. Free agents will not get the money as in years past. Owners need to be careful until they know if it will be a normal year with fans in the stands or another video game season like this year, not sure I can take another 60 game season, no fans, only play teams in your area, goofy extra inning stuff.

Re: whos gonna win next year

Erik- Yes, Tony is a hall of fame manager. However, he has not managed in 9 years and he is the same age as my dad, 76. Just like our Presidential Candidates should be enjoying retirement instead of running our country, Tony should be retired as well. I think the travel and his health are going to be issues for him. They better have a great bench coach on hand because I will be surprised if Tony is able to be in the dugout for 162 games.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

Im not saying he is the best option but a better one than the sox currently had in renteria. Would hinch or cora have worked despite the bad look on both of them?

Re: whos gonna win next year

one things for sure, the white sox will not be outmanaged. LaRussa is one of the most brilliant baseball minds ever. read the book one last strike, he's like a great chess player thinking 5 moves ahead. ive been watching baseball foralmost 50 years and i learned new things from it.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

I really don't know what to think about the LaRussa thing - it's Back to the Future for sure.

- The Sheik

Re: whos gonna win next year

One thing for sure, Tony is not gonna like the limit on mound visits. He sure did like his TV time all those other years.

Re: Re: whos gonna win next year

theres only 4 players on their roster who were even alive last time he managed whitesox !!

Re: whos gonna win next year

Jack McKeon and the Marlins. And McKeon didn't quite have LaRusso's pedigree.
