F. Robbie, gone too soon: https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/basketball/ny-sports-frank-robinson-obituary-20190207-story.html

They don't make ballplayers like him, anymore.

Sad. I had heard Robby was near the end. One of the least appreciated superstars of his era.

An alltime great ballplayer, a legit 5-tool superstar, who was overshadowed in the more colorful NL, but found his glory when traded to Baltimore in 1966.

RIP

This Sixto Sanchez must be some arm.


At least a few publications feel Phils got hosed.

I feel sometimes when that one piece is dangling out there that fits so perfectly - that a slight overpay is just fine


So best of luck to young Mr Sanchez - if he is a Hall of Famer this doesnt mean Phils should not have acted.  Gonna hate seeing J T in that Phils lineup as Mets try to stack up.

Bufrd, Blair, Robinson, Robinson, Belanger, Johnson, Powell, Hendricks, Palmer, Cuellar, McNally, Watt, Richert, Hall........

The great '69 O's.......

no match for Gil's boys - though they did get the upstart Reds the following year (Frank's Revenge).

Rest in peace, Robby.

He's 20. He's small. He's unproven. He's still a prospect.

Realmuto's going to make it easier to sign others.

NL East becoming best division in MLB?

That's certainly the conclusion I would come to after looking at the odds on the post right before yours!

Two AL East teams and one AL Central in the top three, followed by two NL teams not from the East.

Clearly, the NL East is the best division - low to no expectations!
