  1. Total choke job by me, 36. Man, Chance Sisco and Rio Ruiz seem like they were from a decade ago this year has been such a grind.
  2. The Red Sox. The Yankees were supposed to be the class of the AL and to not even get a home playoff game would be deeply humiliating to them. Also I think the Yankees are more of a threat to get hot and run the table, whereas I think the Red Sox have pretty slim odds of getting past Tampa Bay.
  3. I don't see any chance that both (1) the service time rules stay the same and (2) the season begins on time without a work stoppage.
  4. Mike Wright Jr. about to get the loss or the win for the White Sox in extra innings. He let the ghost runner score in the top of the tenth. 9-8 Red Sox going into the bottom of the inning.
  5. Wait, there's a rule now against bumping old threads? So we're never going to see that dumb dancing gifs thread again?
  6. Breyvic Valera is filling in nicely for Cavan Biggio in Toronto. Another 2 hits today for a .825 OPS.
  7. It's pretty simple: the Orioles are spending $65 mm to be garbage, and the Tampa Bay Rays are spending $74 mm to lead the division. The union wants to maximize player salaries, so which situation should be more troubling to them? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 Answer: Obviously the latter. The Orioles know they will eventually have to move to a higher payroll, the Rays feel like they can sustain their cheap payroll forever.
  8. Maybe time will vindicate those moves, maybe not, but if were looking at what complaints the union will be bringing to the table, number one will obviously be service time manipulation, but number two will be the rumors of collusion behind the slow FA markets for guys like Harper and Machado. This is all about mid-level teams not willing to pony up the $ to push them past 85-90 wins, and it should be worrying to the union that MLB wants to set the playoff bar there. The stuff we tend to argue about, like why can't Elias find more guys like Urias or why hasn't Elias fixed Dean Kremer or mo
  9. If I'm in the player's union, I'm a lot more concerned about ostensibly competitive teams like Boston and Cleveland shipping out their stars (Betts and Lindor) because they don't even want to make an effort to retain them as free agents. Cleveland is a mediocre .500 team and Boston is sinking like a stone with RF/1B being a major hole for them, but with MLB looking to alter the playoff structure to guarantee a spot to teams in the barely .500 range, look for a lot of teams to try this model. That's what is damaging to the game, IMO, and that's what the union should be fighting.
  10. They just gave Babe Ruth's number to the left fielder (looked it up, it was George Selkirk)??? That was the most surprising thing to me.
  11. Just imagine how bad they'll be once they trade Joey Gallo and Kyle Gibson.
  12. The Yankees' barebones COVID squad is now 4-1. What the heck.
  13. Somehow, some way, Asher Wojciechowski is pitching for the Yankees right now.
  14. Good thing they're getting amazing work from Nestor Cortes, Jr.
  15. And Hess gets the win over the big bad Dodgers! (While also picking up a blown save.)
  16. Last night is an example why baseball is the best sport to follow. Even in the crappiest possible season with the most frustratingly indifferent front office, you still get incredible moments like this. What's the NFL equivalent of what the Orioles are currently doing, maybe the Jets' 2-14 season last year? Are any Jets fans going to look back fondly on either of those two wins years from now? Of course not. Yet I will remember being at Cedric Mullins T-Shirt Night for a good long while.
  17. Mullins now has a higher OPS than Aaron Judge.
  18. I'll be so happy when Pillar retires.
  19. It's demanding too much to want her to announce a substitution? That's one of her (not that many) responsibilities. Why is she there otherwise?
  20. Lord, I needed that.
  21. What's up with the sarcasm? I don't go to every home game; maybe she was just having an off day. Maybe the previous guy would have missed it, too. But you would want the MASN broadcast to tell you that there was a pinch runner and the Orioles' best hitter was out of the game, why shouldn't the people who paid money to be there be just as informed?
  22. I don't really ask for a lot in my P.A. announcer, just that they actually, you know, make the announcements. The P.A. announcer yesterday did not announce Freddy Galvis as a pinch-hitter or Ryan McKenna as a pinch runner. Now, the percentage of people in the crowd that are actually invested in who's running is probably south of 50% (although losing Mancini's bat could have been a big deal if the game had gone to the 11th inning), but if your only job is to make these announcements, why can't you actually do it?
  23. Can Mancini really not pinch hit?
  24. Those are the only kinds of hits Sisco gets.
