^ How about the next hitting coach which he has shown interest in?
I don't think we'll see him on the field for a few years. He'll probably get a special adviser to the general manager position and have an involvement at home games.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Sorry, I though we were talking about Clemens' comeback. I think it could be part of a gimmick for him to drum up some new support since he has been "absolved" of perjury so to speak.

As for Chipper, first ballot no doubt about it.

Last night was a dagger for the Bravos by the way. The Nationals just give them fits for some reason. I hate playing them. I'm worried about the wild card format this year. The Braves don't really have that "ace" that you rely on for a must win. They will probably run Hudson out there and it will be a crap shoot with the Bucs.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Oh, that post was probably about Clemens. The whole thing is silly. He's not getting in anytime soon.

If it goes to a one game playoff, you gotta run Medlen out there.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Heh, you don't have to sell me on Chipper. He's a true old school player. Only thing I'm not sure of is if he's a first ballot or not. There is going to be a huge back log of people with HoF numbers but with some link to steroids in the next 5 seasons of voting. This will slow down the entry of people who really deserve to get in since the votes are gonna be rather divisive.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

You know, all this kerfluffle about shutting down Strasburg is going to be much ado about nothing when they have an 11 game lead in September. The Nationals are leaving the Braves in the dust and my dear Bravos just can't seem to ever beat them. I'm about 10 days away from going all in on my prediction for a Nationals/Angels World Series.

Another Bay Area baseball Player has been suspended for Testosterone. I guess the Bay Area is so used to the Steroid controversy but this sucks.

Personally I think it's good that mlb seems to be taking the substance abuse bit seriously now.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

So they basically need to start testing anybody having an abnormally good season

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Why don't they just test everybody, whether they are having a great year or they suck?

League-wide, majors, minors, rookie league, everyone.

Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

They SHOULD. Several times at random over the year. Wonder how much of Colon's big season last year was that 'magic' platelet transfusion he got, and how much was just good old fashioned juicing...

The simple answer is the recently signed CBA. Testing is a hot button issue in MLB and it took a lot just to get the current testing policy approved.

^ Yeah, I was thinking it would be something like that.
