    Those arent bad. My preference is to stay below 25 IBU. I prefer the wheats and sours. Too many of the microbreweries lean towards hoppy, hoppier and hoppiest for their brews. It's tough to find ones that dont do that.

    Yeah, where is he. We've had many good beer discussions.

    Not sure he has more upside than mize. Mize has 4 plus pitches and control.

    If you like sours or a good gose, all of the ones made by Destihl from urbana and Bloomington, are excellent and can be found at binnys.

    MLB cheating scandal

    This will always be the answer and attitude when you have a whistleblower in this type of situation. Right or wrong Fiers lost a great deal of friends. Same thing happens in every workplace with a union.

    Which is owned by Inbev. Inbev owns a number of so called microbrewries. Most of the ones that are widely distributed are owned by either Inbev or Molson-Coors.

    as could rodon.
  8. sure but then people would complain about not not having a MLB 1B. 18mm and 3 years is a good price for a productive hitter. They could have signed other but no one appreciably better than Abreu.

    Not if they don't want to start losing draft picks.
  10. Castellanos is not an appreciably better hitter for the difference in money and years as well as the intangibles.
  11. Depends on your definition of playing. You are correct from a particular point of view. 😁
  12. It will be interesting in the National league. They may not be able to do multiple relievers in an inning but with the extra bat on the bench they can roll out multiple pinch hitters on a regular basis.
  13. Yes they do. Teams do not have accomplished veterans at every position. They work in young cost controlled players into the lineup and staff. The issue is you can't do it too many positions at once. That is a rebuild. They currently have established players at C, 1B, SS, 3B, LF and DH. This leaves CF, RF, 2B for the "banking on potential" players. This is how a team like the White Sox who will have a midrange budget needs to operate. That's pretty good for a team coming out of a rebuild.
  14. we'll see. a couple should be moving to AAA at some point this year. If not then they need to look elsewhere.
  15. Some of it will depend on the progress of the minor league OF as well.
