  1. This is the part of all the things posted that I and probably several totally agree with. I would like to thank you and the Mods for keeping things civil, even through these tumultuous times. I will look at this season with many asterisks ******* along side of it. Again thanks Tony for keeping the site. Also of note, there is always the "Ignore" feature that is a GREAT thing for those you do not want to read posts from.
  2. Today, most baseball players have only played one sport since eight/nine years old. here is a simple list of thos three mentioned above and what they played. It has been noted by several publications that this is the reason there is more injuries to pitchers in baseball as they exclusively use the same muscle groups at a constant level and length of time without toning those other groups used in other sports. Today, most baseball players have only played one sport since eight/nine years old. Here is a simple list of those three mentioned above and what they played other than Baseball. It has been noted by several publications that this is the reason there is more injuries to pitchers in baseball as they exclusively use the same muscle groups at a constant level and length of time without toning those other groups used in other sports. https://thesportsinstitute.com/do-single-sport-athletes-have-more-overuse-injuries/ Ferguson Jenkins - A talented athlete, Jenkins competed in track and field, ice hockey, and basketball in his school years, lettering five times. Catfish Hunter -He played linebacker and offensive tackle in football as well as shortstop, cleanup batter, and pitcher in baseball. Nolan Ryan - In junior high school, Ryan could throw a softball over 100 yards. After ninth grade, Ryan quit playing football after a tackle and fumble caused by future NFL running back Norm Bulaich made him decide to focus on baseball.
  3. I have already replaced the following sports with other things because of "political Correctness" that has run wild through the ranks. NBA - Sucking up to China NASCAR - Dixie Flag Ban NFL - Between Kaepernick and now the Redskin name change. I do think that MLB will be next.
  4. IMO this dispute is a precursor for the upcoming Labor Negotiations. I will be so over anything Baseball Related with another strike.
  5. Those players that go undrafted are free agents and can sign with any team. Here is an article that rates the top ten organizations that have signed these types of players over the years. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/top-10-mlb-organizations-at-identifying-undrafted-free-agents/
  6. Some of the fuel for thought that this OP gives me is: With the talk of contraction in the Minors what types of players do teams keep (age/skill set)?? With such a short upcoming season (If Any) How do teams in 2021 look at innings allowed to pitch?? With no High School/College baseball how will the draft look IF players are given another year of eligibility in college?? If players reject any move to open will contracts (Hence Free agency) be carried over or deemed Null/Void??? Will TV contracts and rights be discounted hence less revenue for ball clubs??? How many of the Sports Networks will go bankrupt with loss of advertising dollars since we have no LIVE events??? I have plenty more but I tire of what will be called a "NEW NORMAL" and it is not even here yet.
  7. This is why I wonder why you would bother with opening MLB Stadiums at a sunk cost when you will already have ST Sites open and running. No fans in the seats would lose revenues if these stadiums were opened.
  8. Kevin Millar had two inside the park home-runs in his career. His first MLB home-run was an inside the park while playing for Marlins and it happened on 5/24/1999 in Chicago NL. His second was while with Boston on 8/26/2003 in Toronto.

  10. Bottom line is that ITS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.
  11. I would add a third reason: 3) During the season you need to have the ability (with players that have them remaining) to place players on optional assignment. Rule 5 players have no options.
  12. We did allow the Tigers to win the season series 3 wins to 4 losses. Even if we had allowed them to sweep us and everything else stayed the same they would have still had one more loss than the Orioles.
  13. By removing the two Rule 5 players, the Forty has two open spots for players in camp or Waiver Claims between now and the end of ST.
  14. That would be considered an understatement. Nunez does not have a good enough arm to play third base.
  15. So we need to forget about the past days of the CAVALRY IS COMING and trade possible assets. I would keep him until at least his fifth season or until a year before free agency. He will be affordable, possibly more dependable than your "plethora", and still maintain top end trade value.
