should not be on that list
Babe Ruth actually is a person, who has never played baseball at a semi good level but are in charge because they con people with dumb numbers, wet dream. His launch angle alone in his prime would make him a top 5 DH in today’s baseball.
OK I'm a little high right now but I literally cannot understand that first sentence.
Ya, me either. Cocaine is a hell of a drug
See ball/hit ball hasn't changed that much in 100 years. He took Walter Johnson deep 10 times but this clown thinks he would K him every time because "hotdogs & beer" or some shit. What a dumbass.
You have to compare players with others in their own era.
For his time, Ruth was far better than almost everyone who played the game
If you take a guy out of his era, and put him into a different one, you have to recreate conditions.
There were 16 MLB teams in Ruth's time, some rich some poor. The teams played each other 22 times, there were rarely relievers, they threw the spitball, dirty balls, nasty balls all in the daytime. They rode the train and spring training was 3 weeks of situps and running.
I doubt any of these old timers could hit this way now with the gloves the fielders use and the field conditions, plus the money they made sucked -- and they bet on outcomes.
This guy isn't even the best relief pitcher in baseball, not close.
He isn't even the best pitcher on the Rockies.
He isn't even the best relief pitcher in the Rockies bullpen.
He was drafted in 30th round of the Amateur draft in 2003, went to college then drafted again in 2006, surprisingly in the 1st round. He spent 4 years in the minors then saw his first MLB action in 2010. 5 games for the Cardinals. 8.46 ERA. They sent him back down. He was called back up in 2010, he had 53 appearances where he had an amazing 4.56 ERA. He's finally had his breakout season in 2018 with 2.43 ERA in 75 appearances at the young age of 33.
Guess what Babe Ruth was doing at the age of 33...
Well he was coming off a year where he hit a measly .356 with 60 homers and 165 RBI's. He already had one MVP at this point, a batting title and 5 World Series rings. He also pitched, a career 2.28 ERA in 147 games with 67 winning %.
He struck out 1,330 times out of 10,623 plate appearances facing some all-time great pitchers. So he struck out 13% of the time.
But yeah this guy that was 33 when he hit his decent peak would strike him out every time He's been smoking way too much reefer in the Rockies.
the guy walks 3.8 hitters per 9 inn, he couldn't strikeout anyone all the time.
Ruth's bellyaches were usually from syphilis and not eating 40 hotdogs in one sitting...
This wins the craziest post of 2018 award!!!
The spitball/dirty ball era ended around 1920...before that time, fans were expected to return fouls in the stands and the umps did their best to use one ball for the whole game. A few pitchers were grandfathered to throw the spitter for the rest of their careers, but the umps starting cycling in fresh balls during the game and players were not allowed to totally blacken the ball.
You will note that offensive stats started exploding around 1920...look at Rogers Hornsby's career as well as Ruth's.
I'm amazed nobody else said anything about this, but....SCOOBY AXSON?!?!?!?
Well if you had babe ruth conditioned to todays game and gave him access to all the programs to transform his body and coaching he could still be good but babe ruth as is probably wouldn't make it out of the minor leagues. He has no speed, he is way to fat, his diet was pretty poor from what I read there is no way he would have a career. Of course there are exceptions like Bartolo Colon but he was caught with performance enhancers
That’s a fucking weird avi, dude.
What are your thoughts when you see it
That it’s a fucking weird avi.
Well the premise is that the black guys in the back is the seahawks defense and the girl is Dak Prescott for this Saturdays playoff game
Wow. It gets weirder.
So, you think Dak Prescott is going to be a spoiled rich girl and the Seahawks’ defense are going to be his family’s butlers and servants? Maybe wash his cars, give his dog a bath, greet his friends and stuff?
I smell a sitcom coming.
