    Tim Anderson to be suspended 1 game for... language?

    Abreu was the leader Chicago deserved...Anderson is the Leader Chicago needs
  5. Guy has incredible bat speed, and he had pop in the minors. He's never hit 40 homeruns though...
  6. WTF?!!? Yelich just hit his 9th homerun of the year...8th against the Cardinals. LMFAO...they still have like 13 games to play after this against them.

    April 10 Gamethread 1:10pm first pitch

    Seems like the Sox are going into these games without a full scouting report on their opponents. The coaching leaves a lot to be desired...

    04/09/2019 Sox vs Rays

    Yankees probably can't wait to play us...Holy shit we're making every team look awesome.

    Timmy and Yoyo making it look easy.
  10. Well he's certainly not going to say the opposite...that loses the trust of the coaching staff.
  11. Covey definitely wasn't the answer, dunno wtf this is

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    Harper being on the cover of MLB the Show alone puts free advertising for your team...how many new young fans can you get with just that alone???

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Like I said earlier, nothing will change until ownership changes. They're living in the 90s and trying to get the modern concept but failing miserably. It's 2020, wake the fuck up and join the rest of the league...JR is a damn relic, and Hahn and KW are wannabes.
