Big Ben is freakin awesome! Can we just let him take over for Demper or Hunter right now? It'll be interesting to see how this rotating commentary things plays out - whether one or more of them is invited back in a larger role next year and his many are cut altogether.

I agree, I think he's doing a good job so far.

I know this is going to sound crazy. I think Atkins is going to have a big game.

that does sound pretty crazy, hopefully your correct.

Jones needs to set the tone for the game and stretch the count, I want him to take pitches, and drive up the number pitches Sabathia throws. Markakis and Tejada will take care of business tonight.

Apparently he didn't hear you, swung at the first two.

If the guy throws strikes, taking pitches doesn't help, it hurts. I don't know why people think watching called strikes go by without swinging is a good thing, but it's not. Whether it's smart or dumb to take pitches depends on who the pitcher is and whether he's throwing strikes. It is not a good blanket policy.

    • Twenty people believe there’s a trade before the season that changed the offseason? Hmm I said it when Elias was hired. Nothing of any significance will change until there’s new ownership.  Actually, I questioned his ability to perform his duties with the current ownership. I’m still waiting for an impact signing. However, I think they may have a chance with the young guys. Of course, that assumes a big season from Adley, Gunnar and GrayRod and it’s likely at least one of that group has growing pains.    I also hope Hall gets a real shot as a SP. Too many people didn’t recognize the strides he made in season and he’s always been a starter. His stint in the pen was useful, but that kid has electric stuff.  Don’t get me wrong, Elias has been ok, but how much could he do if they loosened the purse strings? Yes, I know, the Frazier signing, but how bout that Gibson guy!  
    • The biggest development of the season will be the sale of the team.
    • We will be fortunate if GRod has a sub 4 ERA. I don’t see him as any more important than the rest of the starters.  If he is ever a true ace (and the odds are against that), it won’t likely be in 2023. The biggest development to this year will be revolved around all the young players, not just one. Everything about this team and the future success of this organization hinges on them. 
    • I'd say that is a yes. https://www.mlb.com/glossary/transactions/service-time  
    • Unusual, in that Birds usually avoid both Fox and Wolf.
    • Why not keep Al and NL just make each have East and West Divisions. Al East is our current group plus Chicago WS and Cleveland plus an expansion in Charlotte-Nashville. AL west gets the rest NL east is that current group plus Chicago Cubs, Pittsburg, and Cincinnati. the west gets the rest plus an expansion in Vegas or wherever. You play your division 15 times (105 games) and the other division say 6 times (48 games). That gets you to 153, add a 3 game inter league to a close geographic rival (Gnats) you are at 156. Expand Playoffs so top 4 in each Division in. the top 2 advance to face the other geographic Division. league winners in WS
