    Good news for you. Coop changed back to 21 this season. Vaughn will wear 99 when he makes it up.

    You may as well get ready now for the "he's a black player so Kenny Williams loves him" bullshit. It's going to be fast and furious this year.

    It doesn't work like that. Your agent works on getting you paid by the position you play. Not how Jack Parkman thinks it should be done

    Really hoping Adolfo stays healthy and shows he's a legit option for RF.

    Luis Robert has reported to Glendale and is already hitting in the cage. *HEAVY. BREATHING.*

    I like you, and I respect you. But given what Denny McLain did (for example), this view is kinda horseshit. Weaver got suspended for knowing about the scam, but not reporting it; Jackson's involvement still isn't 100% clear. Are we to believe that NONE of McLains team mates knew about his gambling and (allegedly) mob-related bookkeeping activity, but didn't report it? Or Pete Rose's team mates didn't know anything about his gambling? Sorry, but MLB hasn't been as hardcore on gambling as they purport to be. Houston (and all their cheating players) did far worse with their cheating, full stop.

    Disclaimer: completely insane, impractical idea The players from the 29 other teams could force additional punishment by announcing their intent to refuse to travel to Houston during the 2020 season. It's not a strike - you're allowed to forfeit games by not showing up. The Astros would hemorrhage money - 81 forfeited home game "victories" with zero attendance, angry season ticket holders/luxury suite buyers demanding refunds, an apoplectic RSN with nothing to televise and total loss of ad revenue. How many weeks would it take?

    I feel like “local prep position player” is something they have ignored a lot recently

    kudos to @chitownsportsfan for the second post. I am attending this year again, March 1-3, will be at Sox @ Angels, Padres @ Sox and probably Rangers @ Rockies at Talking Stick. Staying in Scottsdale, going to hike one of the days. See you there.

    Look at all that equipment in the back! God it feels good that this organization is finally catching up to the times. Still not quite there yet, but it's a hell of a start.

    Thank goodness on the three batter rule. A small positive step for fan-kind. I despise pitchers coming in for one batter.

    Sure, but not everyone fits that narrative and that was my point.

    He should be batting 2nd anyways.

    If he’s willing to sign an extension, bat him wherever the fuck he wants.

    So, Lopez was too busy fixing other pitchers problems on the mound than figuring out his own? I think we found Coop’s replacement.

    1 in 2009, when he came back. It’s on baseball-reference if want to look at the history. Unfortunately they only have players, not coaches numbers.

    Any idea how they got around doing this without players being in the MLBPA? That was always the excuse for literally the last 15 years. that they weren't allowed to. Many minor leaguers have spoken out on Twitter about this asking where their cut is for SCEA using their likeness in the game....

    Gio is Gio. Other Gio is Gonzalez or Gonzo. This is the way.
