Recommended Posts

Just starting now on MASN.... an "Orioles Classic" vs the 2017 Astros.  Zach Britton gets the consecutive saves record.

What integrity?

Guys have been cheating since day two.

Something that happened in 1869 is pretty irrelevant.  And there are extremes of cheating.  This is worse than anything other than throwing games.

How many guys are you planning on suspending?  The entire 2017 roster?

Just the position players except for Kemp.

Brawls in spring training could be good.  The Orioles won’t be involved in the drama that’s for sure.  No one from the team seems concerned.  

Yea, maybe someone can get hurt, that'd be a hoot.

Maybe some kid can get a career ended injury when he was on the cusp of the majors.

Wouldn't that be "interesting"?

Throwing at guys is dumb and dangerous.  Charging the mound is dumb and dangerous.  Brawling is dumb and dangerous.

Knowing what Zach was throwing didn’t help you.  96 mph sinker coming.  Good luck.

So the pitchers who also knew about it and benefited would be exempt.

Seems fair?

Recent meeting with Rob Manfred notwithstanding, I suspect several Orioles execs would prefer their Astros DNA be forgotten for a while.

I disagree with the notion of brawling as good.  I think calm solidarity from all the players demanding further action from the Commisisoner's office would be a lot more constructive.

Sure, if Manfred hit them too I would not complain.

How many players in the history of the MLB have had career injuries from brawls.  I have been to plenty of hockey games over the years and have seen a ton of fights from huge guys.  Guys like Chris Simon and Craig Berube were on the capitals at the same time and I never remember them giving anyone a career injury.  Two guys I wouldn’t want to get in a fight with.

The pitchers were cheating as well.

First name that comes to my mind is Brien Taylor.  He hurt his shoulder in a brawl and was never the same.  Former #1 pick overall.

Hard to believe in this day and age someone is advocating for physical violence in the workplace.

That was not in a baseball brawl.

I do believe the punishment for the organization is fair, and voted as such on the poll, but the players got off entirely which makes no sense.  
 

How can the league punish individual players for PEDs but not this?

So?

You said brawl, it was a brawl.

Killed an otherwise very promising career.

Possibly cost the kid millions.
