I like it. Could Extend careers and give more guys jobs.

Not sure i agree with banning the shift though.

Iím thinking correa will end up on the cubbies. Godspeed, sir.

I canít fucking wait. So stoked. Missing baseball so fucking much. All the moves make sense to me.

9 inning double headers and no man on second in extras? Banning the shift? Unless I read it wrong earlier these are the right moves. Universal DH is great too. Fuck a robot ump as well. I like managers and umpires arguing and fucking full baseball brawls. Letís go Os!

miguel cabrera is lined up for hit number 3000 today as the tigers play against the yankees

can't wait to see that as it is a very impressive feat that might not be repeated for a long time

I think thereís a few guys who could snag 3k, but yeah with the strikeout rate what it is now 3k is gradually getting more rare.


I think Miggyís triple crown is more impressive to me. Now thatís something we may never see again.

i don't know, most (veteran) players that could be considered for the 3000 hits run are pretty far and they are not getting younger either

https://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/H_active.shtml

but yeah, you're absolutely right

a batting triple crown is so impressive, especially in our era

Youíre right though! i just looked it upÖ i thought maybe the usual suspects would be closer Votto, Altuve, Trout etc. Miggy and Pujols only active players that will achieve it. Robinson Cano might have a shot, but seems unlikely. Maybe if he DHs..

Guess the Emphasis on home runs and such now. Defensive shifts. Makes me miss guys like IchiroÖ

aaron boone wasn't feeling like it and my boy got walked

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwONRvabGfA

got a fascination for japanese baseball players and as a cubs fan, we got seiya suzuki this year and he's been amazing so far!

hahaha always happy to see the yankees lose too

only player i root for on that team is anthony rizzo

i really don't hate players in general but seeing gerrit cole being absolute dogshit on the mound at the start of this season made me feel happy inside - nice way to live up to the expectations that come with this massive and ridiculous contract

he'll probably pick it up and become dominant again rather sooner than later though

The lone Astros fan (i know i know) so hearing Cole throw a hissy fit over a 4 minute delayed start is hilariousÖ big ass contract at the cost of being the ace for the pinstripes with all that pressure..

Plus the banning of sticky stuff. Framber Valdez is another guy who honestly hasnít been the same since.

I like it. I have no idea why you would have different rules for the two leagues if they play each other. As a Twins fans, fuck the Yankees lol.

it was fine to be an astros fan before 2017 hahaha

Cleveland "Guardians"? Wtf? Cleveland really shit the bed here. "Steamers" is the only acceptable name change I see. I would've bought their merch for sure.

I help coach my kidís little league team. Weíre the Rockies. Our head coach is from Cleveland and wears a wahoo hat religiously. Not about that guardian life. Iím a lifelong giants fan tho and weíre going to the Aís game tomorrow for little league day. Kid is confused to say the least, but understands this is a giants house. I love baseball. I played up until high school and stopped for skateboarding and smoking weed, but now Iím more into it than both of those things as Iím turning 40. I just put together a pitch back in our back yard and Iím throwing more than my kid.

sorry for the tmz post but maybe bauer's not a scumbag after all - he must be confident that he was defamed to sue this woman like that

abuse against women is among the worst things a human being can do and it always makes my blood boil but i'll be the first one to eat my words if he's not found guilty - let's see how that pans out for him

also the cubs had their biggest shutout victory ever against the pirates last weekend, that was fun to watch

Raised by die hard Giants fans the family group chat was bashing Joc Pederson once we got him from the Dodgers, but he's been a saving grace as a batter more than enough times for that opinion to do a full 180!

Personally I was always glad to have him on, go Giants.

Verlander was 5 outs away from one as well. Damn near 40 years old coming off tommy John.
