    I'm watching the Nats/Mets game now - Darren Baker (Dusty's son) is playing for the Nats! Kid's come a long way since '02...

    Manny Machado said he was planning on opting out of the final five years (and $150 million) of his contract next year. Now the Padres are giving him a 11-year, $350 million extension.

    With the new rules regarding the timing of the game will players still have enough time to use big walkup songs?

    For example, will Edwin Diaz still be able to do this?

    Tyler Glasnow is hurt again. He's never going to have a full healthy season as a starting pitcher.

    That is subject to to dispute, what about 1975 or 90? But then...I'm a bit biased. ;)

    Did anyone think the amount of money the Rockies gave Kris Bryant last year was a bigger WTF than the super contracts given to Eric Hosmer, Anthony Rendon, etc.? Especially since they traded Nolan Arenado to dump his salary (even throwing in $50 million), and then turn around and give more money to Kris Bryant?

    Honestly...I don't give a fuck anymore. All of those contracts and owners crying poor and everything else in between is so meaningless at this point.

    The Rockies owner literally complained that the Padres were making the rest of the owners look bad because they're actually paying players to stay competitive.

    That's debatable, but I won't fight it considering 2010, 2012, and 2014. ;)

    One of the gaikokujin on the Fighters' roster has posted his own preview of their new stadium:



    On the off chance that the Asia Series were to make a return, perhaps the Fighters could set up an "On-Brand Stadium Series" with Taichung's Brothers. Or, once Rapidus assemble their recently-announced plant near New Chitose Airport, a "Semiconductor Series" with Tsinchu's Dragons...

    -----

    On a side note, is the 2023 World Baseball Classic going to be discussed here as it happens, or should there be a separate thread created for it once it's up and running?

    Considering how injury prone he was with us, definitely a bigger risk than just paying some guy for diminishing returns.

    Dangerous 'forever chemicals' were found in turf at the Philadelphia Phillies' old stadium after six former players died of same cancer, investigation finds.

    6 isn't a large number, but could be more than a coincidence.

    How is increasing the size of the bases supposed to help guard against injuries? I honestly don't understand the logic of it. :confused:

    From what I understand reducing injuries is not the point, increasing action/scoring opps on the field is.

    I guess the new and "improved" slogan will be, "Chicks dig the stolen base"

    The eternal question will be, how many would Rickey Henderson have gotten*?
