    I guess the Chiefs wouldn't exactly mind having that huge-ass parking lot to themselves...

    Always get your blackmail threats out early, we have two ballparks from the last one and now the Browns--no not them--are threatening a new one/relocation they are ga-zillionaires and need the taxi-payers to pony up.

    I guess Berlin is lookin' good to them now. ;)

    If memory serves, the Truman Sports Complex has the same issue that Baltimore does with Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, in that the two stadiums share utility infrastructure, most notably plumbing, and as a result they cannot hold games simultaneously.

    "Please everybody, don't flush at once!" Do they end up with a sewage problem, like Oakland if they do?

    I doubt it will be as bad as that render. A larger scoreboard in center isn't a bad idea, we'll see.

    Blue Jays trade Teoscar Hernandez to the rival Mariners for a strong bullpen arm and a prospect.

    It seemed doubtful that the team was going to re-sign him with contracts for Guerrero & Bichette, but the return seems so little for an above average hitter. Is Swanson going to be a lights out bullpen arm? And who are the Blue Jays going to run out as a third outfielder considering they also DFAed Tapia and Zimmer?

    Newcomers on the HOF ballot:

    Carlos Beltran, John Lackey, Jered Weaver, R.A. Dickey, Huston Street, Francisco Rodríguez, Bronson Arroyo, Matt Cain, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jayson Werth, Mike Napoli, J.J. Hardy, Jhonny Peralta and Andre Ethier.

    Only one is a hall of famer, but how will a non-steroid cheating scandal play into it?

    Miguel Cabrera has said that 2023 will be his final season. I thought 2022 was? :confused:

    He's got 32 million reasons to play in 2023.

    No? He's always said he intended to play out the full length of the contract that Mike Ilitch signed him to back in like 2014. He was saying a year ago that 2023 would be his final season.

    What is Don Mattingly doing? I thought he had a guaranteed FO job with the Marlins.

    I believe when he announced that he wasn't returning in 2023, it meant he and the Marlins were severing ties completely. Anyway, this is him taking a demotion for a while until yet another team decides to give him a chance at managing.

    In other news, Disney has completed its purchase of BAMTech (MLB still held 15 percent of it; Disney paid $900 million to acquire that last bit), so when your favorite team starts crying poor this winter, just remember that they got $30 million for free this month.

    It should be interesting to see if they can get past Houston.
