    Agreed. Bunt, steal a base, hit behind the runner, beat the fuckin' shift.

    But unfortunately this ain't your Daddie's Oldsmobile baseball anymore, and that sucks. :confused:

    They ditched the pitch clock idea though, right?

    Not sure. But if they ditched 3 minutes of commercials after every other play, it sure as hell would speed things up.

    But someone always needs to ring the cash $ register. ;)

    Pretty much, they tossed Winker in to dump Suarez, pure salary dump.

    Can't get mad at them, remember the commish told us times are tough for these poor billionaires.

    Nope. The CBA says that MLB can implement it in 2023.

    So invisible runners, advertising on the uniforms, and a pitch clock…

    The Braves already extended Olson to a huge eight-year deal.

    I'm still in shock. :(

    1 year $13M.

    Kris Bryant has a 7 year $182M deal with the Rockies. If he stays healthy he could hit a hundred dingers out of that place.

    Tatis Jr. is having surgery on that broken wrist.

    The Chicago Cubs made their first major move of the spring free-agent frenzy, bringing in outfielder Seiya Suzuki. The five-year, $85 million deal carries the highest salary for a Japanese position player coming to Major League Baseball.
