    MLB cheating scandal

    "Astros outfielder Josh Reddick just told reporters he has received death threats via social media — and that in one case someone wished cancer upon his children. Reddick said he’s not the only one in the Astros’ clubhouse who had received death threats, either." I don't know the full story here, but apparently Reddick/etc. where trolling people on twitter before and now this has all transpired. IMO This is really on Manfred's head... he's the one who said the punishment these players will get will be enough. He's almost begging fans to punish these guys.

    KW says "no Puig"

    I 100% don't trust Nomar M. I hated the move when it was made and still hate it today. We had so much ability to go after Nick C, Y. Puig, M. Ozuna (super cheap deal), or make a trade, yet we are OK with a lousy below average Nomar Mazaraa. The one major move of the offseason that I've hated, otherwise I feel pretty good with how the W'Sox handled it. The reason why I've hated the move is not because of what we gave up... it's because the White Sox feel 100% fine with handing him the starting RF and foregoing the other options. Imagine getting Ozuna on his current contract.. that woulda been awesome. The Rockie are regularly known for blocking their youngsters. They might be the single worst team in the majors at young player development. The white Sox on the other hand give their prospects long term contracts to get them up to the league as fast as possible. Puig to the Rockies means Hilliard/Hampson/McMahon/Tapia all have more issues getting playing time.

    KW says "no Puig"

    This is such a dumbass typical Colorado Rockies move... they have all the young talent, all spots covered, yet they'll happily sign a mediocre veteran to block their rookies.... Wish the Sox had the mojo to get this done, Puig helps us out nicely since we only have 2 real OFrs.

    Let's go cubs, I hope our Chicago faithful do well on both sides of town!

NL West has 3 excellent teams, although the Dodgers should run away with it. AL East and AL West are pretty nice divisions, but not as good as NL E and C. AL C is kinda up for grabs between the top three teams. You can also use this thread to post BOLD MLB predictions, i.e. who you think will have a surprising year and their stats.

    Michael Kopech

    I don't think we can pencil him in for anything at this point. We gotta see how he pitches first. Spring training will be a welcomed sight (assuming hes pitching then). I think we will get a lot of our information from that.
  8. Sorry guys, really appreciate the set up but 350 prices me out currently and im pretty set now with my 8 leagues. Cheers and good luck

    Yasiel Puig is a CLASS ACT and should be regarded as such from here on out on these premises. k?thanks.

    Huge Blow for Indians: Clevinger Out

    Meh, its likely going to be 7 weeks or so, so i would image back very early. Wouldn't say a huge blow IMO, but yeah, never a good thing.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    I think that's a solid list IMO. I'm very happy with 18 going into the season, we have so many young guys and our SP's have very little track record so we are going to have to prove it to move up the list. Being ranked about Trout+rendon's Angels and the Padres is actually pretty surprising TBh.

    Mlb might be changing playoff format

    Exactly what BrianAnderson said. It won't *stop* tanking, but the problem with tanking is the middle-level teams deciding to tank and not compete, not the bottom feeders. Bottom feeders need to tank and not much will stop them from doing so unless you attack the incentives to be the biggest loser, which is a dangerous game. But the middle level teams that often sell off their assets will now have more hope.

    Mlb might be changing playoff format

    Trying to form my opinion on the playoff chatter, both sides have strong points. The idea to add more teams would increase revenue and help stop the massive tanking that is going on through 60% or so of the league. However, adding more teams absolutely dilutes the regular season and doesn't feel right to me. Still not sure what side of the fence I'm on, but I tend to be more on the don't change it side. I'd hate the idea of making the regular 162 game season feel more trivial.
  14. I definitely believe it when they say they will bring him up on OD with a strong spring performance. I'm rooting for Madrigal with all my might this spring.
