EBBETS FIELD'S ASHES - On a lonely, cold and unspectacular street in Crown Heights, architecturally unimpressive apartments now stand at 55 Sullivan Place. They have so since 1960, when Ebbets Field was demolished, ending all hopes for Brooklyn Dodgers fans that their team might still come home. When that wrecking ball hit dreams were destroyed and ghosts were born, haunting the the actions of Walter O'Malley. Therein lies the foundation (construction pun) for today's topics: 60-Game Seasons Don't Count, Justin Turner Tarnished Trophy, Curse of O'Malley 60-Game Seasons Don't Count Sorry, but when you play 30% of a season, it doesn't matter whether you have a playoff system or not. It's doesn't count. The MLB season is a marathon, not a sprint. Need some numbers to back that up? Here are MLB leaders in wins after 60 games the last three years: 2019 - Minnesota Twins 2018 - Boston Red Sox 2017 - Colorado Rockies ONE of those teams proved worthy over the long haul and they cheated. Again, it's a marathon. It especially doesn't count when key members of your 100-meter dash squad opt out, fearing they might get the plague. Marcus Earl Stroman in fact, would have turned this whole 60-game farce upside. Yes... ONE METS PITCHER. Yet, he chose the health of those around him over money and a shell of a trophy for a slapped-up, mish-mosh "season" [Air Quote]. See, Stroman isn't a selfish, damn-the-old-folks-I-might-get-sick person. That brings us to... Justin Turner Tarnished Trophy Poor Clayton Kershaw. He finally pitches himself off the Boulevard of Broken Post-Season Pitchers Poster but it's tainted. A) See the 60-game thing above. B) Turner Tarnishes his trophy forever. Granted, many of us may have done exactly what Justin "To Gnome Him Is To Love Him" Turner did, but we didn't. Therefore we can judge. And my gavel slams heavy on the guilty side. This World Series was a nice, feel-good thing for fans during an awful time of doubt, finger-pointing and strife in our streets. But it ain't no World Series Championship and now will be remembered for Turner's decisions. The Curse of O'Malley It all goes back to what this paranormal pundit has been saying all along, the Ghosts of Ebbets Field and The Curse of that greedy, heartless Walter O'Malley will haunt the Dodgers and SF Giants in some way, some how, forever. Was it one of those Brooklyn Ghouls that talked Turner into pulling off his mask and washed him of any concerns of his fellow man? Maybe. Just maybe. That's enough ghost talk for one Halloween.
