BTB Picks: MLB Playoffs

October baseball is back, which means it’s time to cancel what you’re doing at night for the next month and dive into the world of playoff baseball.  People have officially chosen their team to bandwagon, and will soon be spending $35 on a hat that says “2017 World Series Champs”.

Here at BTB, we make sure we call our shots before the playoffs get too deep, and below are some of our writer’s picks for how they think the playoffs will go down:

A Tweet That Was So Annoyingly Basic It Had to Be Blogged About: A Joint Rant Presented by BTB

Bert: I saw this tweet this morning and I swear to you, I have never seen something more basic in my almost 20 years of existence.

BTBspiracies: Manny Ramirez – Illegal Rat Fighting Ring Organizer?

Here at Below the Belt Sports, we don’t just bring you hot takes. We bring you burning hot, five-alarm fire, Peruvian Puff Pepper, 1999 Britney Spears hot takes. Some of these takes are so hot, you could even refer to them as conspiracy theories.

For the first-ever BTBspiracies (name in progress), we look into whether or not Manny Ramirez followed Michael Vick’s dogfighting footsteps and organized a rat fighting ring in the green monster. We also discuss if he ever played with his genitals out or not, and if it was really a bat he was swinging with. Give it a listen to find out.

Inaugural BTB Video: Founders All-Time Baseball Draft

There are moments in your life you just don’t forget. Your high school graduation. Getting married. The birth of your kids. Posting your first video to a college blog you and your friends from high school made. Well, we can cross another one of those off the bucket list today – no, Bert isn’t getting married, BTB Sports has posted their first ever video. Here goes nothing.

THE PREMISE

If you had one game to win, and the entire history the baseball to choose from, who would you put out on the field?

We drafted in a snake format, going from Bert, then Stanzo, and wrapping up with Dave.

You get a full infield and outfield, one starting pitcher, and one relief pitcher. NO DH. And of course, a manager.

Check out the video, and the final lineups are posted below. Feel free to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more BTB Sports content.
