    So who is going to have the bigger year, Devers or Torres?
    Will the Yankees crush their own record for home runs in a season?
    Does Sale's arm fall off before the all star break?

    Well, headed to the Big O for the brew crew vs the jays in the final spring training warm up. The 1994 team is being honored as the would have lost to the yankees NL champs. Can't wait!
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    I think Devers is due for a big year. I hope I'm right!

    I'd never bet on a record getting broken, but they'll hit some dingers in that ballpark.

    I don't know what to think of Sale's arm at this point. Your guess is as good as mine.

    Indians have 4 starters in the top 25.

    They have Jose Ramirez and Frankie Lindor, two MVP candidates making up the best infield combo since Omar and Robbie.

    That's strong as new rope.

    90+ wins in a weak division gets em an easy path to the post-season.



    But, there's no Miller Time, no Cody Allen, and an open casting call for outfielders.


    That said, I know 28 other teams that would trade places for this staff and all-stars. Plenty have won a Series with less.

    Watch out for this version of the Indians, you can't call em sleepers, but you sure won't be paying attention either.

    Roll Tribe.
    I still call it The Jake.

    it's between the tribe and redsox imo, as both the Astros and Yankees starting pitching looks to be worse than last year.

    segue:
    looked up opening day for all teams this year, it's a Thursday and going up against the start of the sweet 16 games, that was brilliant mlb. my guess is lowest tv rated opening series and lowest attended opening series for a high majority of teams in over a decade.
    Eat em up Houston Cougars !

    itís such a stupid argument, mlb is flush with cheaters on every team during the steroids era.

    of course only the red sox had a director investigating the players for abuse to shield them from controversy....

    Eh, Wright can go as far as I'm concerned. I don't like that they kept him on after the domestic violence charges last year. An older player trying to come back from major knee surgery seems like a prime candidate for doping.

    4 pitchers with 200 innings and 200 strikeouts- first time in Major Leage history that’s happened.

    That passes my eye test of a staff I’d love to have.

    Outlawing the shift is the stupidest rule. How does that speed games up? The shift will end as soon as hitters learn to hit the ball the other way.

    Somehow, even with the shift, there are more runs than ever.

    Moving the pitchers rubber back 24" is blasphemous. Doing it as a planned thing half way through a season is downright the most ridiculous thing baseball-wise that I have ever heard. I don't really think I even have to think of anything that matches it in stupidity.
