The Red Loft / Re: Washington [Insert Name Here for an NFL team] Thread (2021)

Those old RFK seats have actually been available to buy online for years now. I'm hoping that they drop in price over the next few years when thousands more become available.

A couple of people who post on the Washington Baseball Yesterday and Today Facebook site have mentioned that when DC Stadium was finished, so of the Griffith Stadium seats were sold to Rosecroft Raceway, and then sold to fans. There are a few Griffith Stadium seats in Cooperstown -- the box seats where Presidents sat. A few went to Tinker Field, Florida home of the Twins. People bought some when the Twins went modern.

Therefore, get your RFK Stadium seats while you can.

not to go too far down the NYY rabbit hole, but Jordan Montgomery carried his weight, Taillon has another year of arbitration, Luis Severino is looking healthy (if expensive), and even Luis Gil looks interesting. Green and Loisaiga are nice pieces around Chapman, too.

The Yankees were 6th in MLB in team ERA this year.  So not clear what you mean about the pitching.  The hitting was what failed them this year.  And Tampa is darn good so it was the wild card for them.  I suspect if they played Boston 10 games they would have split them.  They missed DJ also.  The Yankees were 92-70 this year.  If that is failure I am in favor of failure. 

Edit:  Over the past 4 full seasons they have 91, 100, 103 and 92 wins.  Not bad.  As we know with the Nats bad things can happen to good teams in the playoffs.  And you may even play cheaters.

The Yankees have Cole and then a collection of nobodies. Look at their starters by games started. Nobody but Cole has ever been much good, although Taillon had one good season, in 2018, at Pittsburgh. Their relievers are the over-payed and aging Chapman, plus Chad Green, and then the usual retreads, bounce-back-hopefuls, and never-beens. Loisaiga?

Take a look: https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/NYY/2021.shtml

The Yankees are behind Tampa Bay, Boston, and probably behind Toronto just in the ALE. That's what Boone and Cashman have suggested in "after season" reports. They faded when it was toughest. They are weak up-the-middle: Sanchez, Torres, and Brett Gardner (!). They are weak at 3B and a big question at 1B. 

The Yankees cannot mention "rebuild" or "reboot", but they have a team built to lose. No matter what it looks like outside the perpetual public relations cloud of "27 Time World Champions" and "Late-inning Lightning", and "Yankee powerhouse", and "Best team money can buy".

They probably cost more than a seat at FedEx...

What's notable about that figure is that RFK's seating capacity when the Redskins played there was 55,750. (It's less now because they removed the bleachers at one end after the Redskins left, and then removed the seats behind the other end zone when the Nats moved in, and they've never restored either.)
