Re: 2017 MLB Week 17 July 24-30

It's great seeing Beltre reach 3000 hits, but makes me sad to see another former Dodger find success and recognition elsewhere and likely go in to the Hall wearing another cap. Like Piazza

Did you hear his introduction today, "This man presided over the longest labor peace....."

They seemed to leave out that 1994 season.....

They did in 2000. Not that it turned out well.

Lucroy reportedly going to Colorado. I never thought the rumors of his going to the Cubs to be a backup made sense.

Just watched a replay of today's Bryant homer, and yeah.

Boston letting him walk was the weirdest one.

Actually, I had thought he was a little more of a journeyman than he actually was.

Former Dodger
Former Mariner
Former Red Sox

Not nearly as circuitous a career as I had erroneously recalled. Truth be told, I probably get him and Carlos Beltran mixed up a lot -- put those two guys together and you've got a sure-fire Hall of Famer who's been around the block a time or two!

Still it doesn't hurt like Pizza or Pedro Martinez's inductions did, at least to me. I never really focused on him as a Dodger even though he was there for a few good years.

Yeah, I was confused because he had only been on a few teams, and the Red Sox barely count. It's just his monster season before leaving that I vividly remember. Pedro didn't do anything in a Dodger uniform for me to really hurt other then what if's.

Omg this Dodgers team. A guy in his MLB debut with a pinch hit game winner in extra innings

Unreal. This team is special.

Win #8 in a row, Franchise-record Series Sweep #13 and MLB record Consecutive win #52 in a game where they held any sort of a lead. 74-31 at the end of July. That's a .704 win percentage and a 114 win pace.

I can't find their number of comeback wins or walk-offs, but they're pretty impressive numbers as well -- and just increased by one.

I think ESPN said their 9th walk off win this year.
