MLB Thread

Recommended Posts

Baseball does kind of deserve this mess though. Without a cap, and the big boys being able to dominate the league with their money power they're just going to be stuck with the teams are are going to care fuck all about trying to win if their choice is between that or balancing the books (....or lining their owner's pockets).

It's between the PA and the league, really. And it could lead to the next work stoppage in MLB. 

Some of the burns though.

I mean, this is just stone cold:

All Boras does it get money for his clients. The burns mean they are just mad all he does is eventually win. 

You're deflating as much as deflategate right now. 

There's the whole cry me a river thing with Boras going on right now. He's always been a loudmouth and he's getting some of his own medicine thrown back at him.

We X-Rayed Some MLB Baseballs. Here’s What We Found.

Really long article but interesting. Small changes to the balls have increased home runs significantly.

I'm surprised it's taken this long for that to happen. If people were suspicious of the baseballs, why didn't anyone do it at any point last year? It's not exactly hard to get your hands on an official ball if you know what you're doing.

They really need to move the A's if they're not getting new stadium.

Saturday/Sunday got a COMBINED 32,000 fans.

 

Similarly with Rays. Not including season opener, they're averaging 17,000 fans.

 

Especially in a revenue sharing league, you'd think there'd be more urgency to fix these situations.
