  1. Replace him with 3 decent RP's and it's a better bet.
  2. Oh why not.? It would rarely happen, like stealing home, and it would be fun when it did.. But how would it effect one's BA?
  3. Do you have any data, links, etc. to back up these suppositions?
  4. Aaron hit 20 the next year, followed by 12. then 10 so he tailed off his last three years. He never had a big spike like Johnson, or Brady did. They may well have juiced but I doubt Aaron did.
  5. Steroids started with the Russian weightlifters in the late 40's early 50's. They pretty much followed weight training from sport to sport. When baseball started weight training in the early 70's steroids went along. Hank averaged 36 HR a year and rarely hit more Than 40 I doubt he ever used PED's except for greenies.
  6. Pet peeve Bring on Robby Please!
  7. Right and climate change is a Chinese hoax. Growth hormones don't make you stronger: study https://www.abc.net.au/news/2010-05-04/growth-hormones-dont-make-you-stronger-study/420984
  8. There is s limit to how much muscle mass any individual can acquire. It varies from person to person. PED's don't increase that ceiling, they help you reach it faster.
  9. Rather than belief why not base your ideas on research and facts? My research has informed me that the primary benefit of PED;s is to increase the speed of workout recovery time and thus allowing the athlete to maintain a level of peak performance over an extended period of time. They do not increase maximum strength more than normal weight training.
  10. Phonetically: Voy jee hof ski
  11. The team is no worse than it was last year. 25 W's on this date in 2018. It is a lot cheaper.
  12. When you have no expectations you have no disappointments. I can live with or without Mancini Cashner or Villar. Nothing matters before 2022 except MiL development.
  13. W With this team? How much more disappointment could there be?
  14. The parameters for the co efficient of restitution of the MLB ball, allow for a variation in flight of up to 10 feet or more. So they can change the ball to increase or decrease the number of HR and still say the ball is the same. They've been doing this for years. Steroids? We don't need no stinkin' steroids!
  15. I totally agree. He's not great but he's no Trumbo in RF.
  16. Mouncastle is learning OF/1B? Seems like he's getting ready to take Mancini's place when he's traded.
  17. I could see a trade with TB. They could use his bat and they always have good young pitching.
  18. I don't care if we suck we won, they lost!
  19. Was sure they wee going to score 7 in the bottom of the 9th.
  20. They aren't that valuable. I would have to be a prospect on the level of Rutschman.
  21. They'll get rid of him when he is blocking a valuable young player of the future.
  22. Mancini is 100 points higher in OPS and at 1.8 WAR to Abreu's 0.7. Trey is hurt by splitting time between 1B,RF and DH, IMO.
