About Bobby Down
Bobby was born in Southern California in the Los Angeles area, and never wants to leave because other places are bad, especially where Kory has lived. Bobby loves baseball and the Dodgers more than just about anything. His favorite player of all-time is the best pitcher of this generation, Clayton Kershaw. If you slander Kershaw in any way, Bobby will know and will teleport into the discussion to smite you down with advanced statistics every which way. You can also catch Bobby arguing with Baseline Times’ very own Dustin Shires that all started with Tim Lincecum from years and years ago. Thanks, Dustin, this is all your fault. Bobby writes baseball articles of all kinds, though mostly filled with stats from Fangraphs. Check it out and see if you learn anything new!

The Astros are an offensive powerhouse led by MVP candidate Jose Altuve. Can Aaron Judge turn his playoff slump around to lead another Yankees upset?
The last month of the season had people thinking the Dbacks could take the Dodgers down, but the momentum didn’t mean a thing in the Dodgers 3-0 sweep.
The Diamondbacks and Dodgers have some bad blood in recent history. This series is unlikely to be a quick one, expect it to go 5 long games.
The Red Sox and Astros ALDS will not be easy for the Red Sox. They are going to have to rely on Sale and Kimbrel if they want to make it to the next round.
2017 ended Kershaw’s 4-year run as the MLB’s fWAR pitching leader. No starting pitcher has led in four straight years since Steve Carlton from 1980-1983.
Scherzer and Kershaw have been the NL Cy Young favorites all season, but Strasburg, Greinke, and Nelson are right on their heels.
In the month of August, the Twins went 20-10, Giancarlo Stanton tied the August home run record with 18 and Corey Kluber had a sub 2.00 ERA and 54 Ks.
The Angels trade for Tigers outfielder Justin Upton. The Angels lineup has been getting hot at the right time, and Upton may just get them to the playoffs.
The 2016-2017 MLB free agent class was not great and has provided many busts in 2017. Here are the six biggest free agent busts to this point.
