    Benny should jump on this as the new wing in his Hall across the street.

    Hang a left at Pete Rose’s 3rd wife at the end of the bar and see our new exhibit of exceptional MLB WaGs and other notables.

    so these guys have gone through the tapes of the Astros season and came up with before and afters from the trash-can banging which started to appear on May 19th. Pretty thorough. And may force MLB's hand because they should get evidence at least this good.

    They stole signs from Strasburg in game 6 for the first few innings before Stras figured it out & changed signals.

    Manfred is really talking about cutting 42 MiLB teams? He really wants to be the worst commish since Selig.

    Marvin Miller and Ted Simmons make the Hall.

    Evans got 8 votes, Parker 7, Garvey and Whitaker 6, and everyone else got 3 or fewer.

    Because Simmons was the superior player for a longer time, given he was at a much harder position (IMO, and apparently the voters' opinions as well, even though Garvey was the bigger "star"). Some disagree, including others posting in this thread. It's all been covered.

    Haven't been following baseball news, first I heard of that. Apparently MLB owners voted 30-0 in favor of the proposal.

    “I cannot believe the arrogance of these people,” a minor league team owner told the Daily News. “They don’t care about lawsuits or anything. They think they’re bullet proof. They’ve told us, ‘We’re doing this and there’s no discussion about it, and if you don’t like it, we’ll form our own minor leagues.’”

    Fuck those people.

    And, interesting number. 42. Really, 42?

    They all get to scrimmage each other in South Florida all summer where it is amazingly cool. Ex son in law would typically lose 20 pounds a summer playing in St. Lucie.

    What are the chances that he's still pitching effectively five or more years from now?

    Kershaw had, I think, two great seasons after re-signing and then back injuries diminished his abilities. Now he's a number (#) three starter at best, and certainly not worth $31MM / year.

    This will all seem cheap when in 9 years the Steven A. Cohen Mets sign a pitcher for a cool billion.

    So these pitchers have signed for amounts well in excess of my Tribe’s annual payroll.

    Yeah, this should work out well for everyone.

    Ask the Cubs, Giants, & Angels how much big payrolls = success. See also: Rays & As.

    but the Indians seem a strange case:

    From here:
    https://www.toledoblade.com/sports/i...es/20190217155
    "we’re not buying the small-market cries of poverty.

    MLB revenues hit a record $10.3 billion last year. If the Indians enjoy a smaller slice of pie than others, they are doing fine. Consider that Larry Dolan bought the Indians from Dick Jacobs for $323 million in 2000. They are now worth $1.05 billion, according to Forbes."

    Too true. The Tribe straddles the line of crying poor and making wise trades and investments better than most teams, but I’m curious to see where this goes in 15-20 years when you have a handful of teams making half-billion dollar contracts with one player. Will that relegate the small market clubs to effectively minor league operations?


    Who knows, as pointed out, baseball is a funny sport where big $ does not always equal big results.

    The questions you have for 15-20 years from now are not new questions, people were asking the same questions about what will happen to baseball in "15-20 years" some 15 to 20 years ago.
