Gave him precautionary game off today, still had a PH at bat. Said he’ll be good to go for Tuesday with having Monday off. Not sure if he’ll play third or DH since it’s @ Houston.

Worth noting the red TC auto sale above is not a good comp...it’s the same idiot listing the card over and over with a high reserve and not actually selling it. Guy would get more for it if he just let it run without reserve

#30 for the fourth straight year. Even with missing a handful of games he may still get 40

I’ll be so pissed if Carpenter wins MVP over Nado. Dude wasn’t doing crap for his team for two months...

#30 is a 2-Run shot off of Verlander to take the lead. @ Houston for all the “Coors field product” guys following this thread.

Another clutch hit.

I agree with you man, last year it really hurt judge that he was inconsistent, so maybe being bad for a long time will hurt carpenter as well

In his interview after the game, Arenado admitted he barely saw the ball Verlander threw, he just swung and it ended up being a home run.

I recently traded for a Topps Chrome Black Gem Auto /100 with greats subs.. I Also have a Chrome Auto Refractor BGS 9/10 with unreal subs for a 9. I can't wait to upgrade it and find someone who doesn't want to pay gem prices, but wants to resubmit it for a bump. Fun guy to collect!

I agree with the consistency piece. Even if you're amazing for 4 months, how can you be the MVP if you were literally in the running for LEAST Valuable Player for the first third of the season? That's why Altuve beat out Judge last year. To me, you should be able to count on an MVP all year, not just in spurts.




Here's an interesting trend when it comes to MVP voting:

Last guy to hit lower than .280 and win MVP in either league was almost 50 years ago (Bench in '72)

Last guy to hit lower than .290 and win MVP in either league was Stanton last year, who also hit 59 homeruns, and Trout in 2014 in a year where there wasn't anyone else deserving of the award (Trout won unanimously). Before that, you have to go all the way back to 1987 (Dawson).

Since 1990, only 4 players have won MVP with a batting average in the .290s.



Basically, batting average seems to matter to voters, and .300 seems to be the magic number. Carpenter is on fire, no doubt, but even so, he's still only batting .277. Will voters hold that against him? History suggests they will.

Exactly my point, I forgot to reference Judge. Granted Altuve had a stellar season had Judge not been non-existent for a couple months I guarantee he would have won.

Wowzers, I got mine during the off season for $30-$40. This is not a guy I would sell on, his stuff is hot.

My only regret as of now is not getting a Update Target border RC. Seems like the ships sailed on those, super expensive. But for that one I missed out on I have tons that I won on, I got my Update Camo /99 RC for $150. So that helps ease the pain

This is one of the best versions of the third baseman barehand do-or-die play that you'll ever see:

https://www.foxsports.com/south/video/1300773955506


How he only has 3 DRS this year is beyond me. He's as good as ever and he's already eclipsed his previous career high in Total Zone Total Fielding Runs Above Average.

I was watching when he pulled that one off. Incredible play! I didn’t think he had a chance.

For what seems to have been an Arenado homerun drought... He finally hits #32!

He went through a couple week slump, I'd like to see him catch fire and make a strong case for MVP. Gonna have to step it up for the rest of the season, it'll really help if the Rockies can hold down the West.
