    Speculation on TLR coaches

    Howie was 0-15 at the Cell. Ha.
  3. Good for Jake Burger. If there's one player that needs a proper minor league season to happen next year, it's him. Hopefully he can play a few months in AA, and show we he can do.

    Offseason Targets

    True. Also, why don’t they just make the non-tender date the day before adding players to the 40-man (which would be today)? If there’s a good reason why they do it this way, I’m all ears.

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    I’m for a little amnesty when it was ignored by MLB, and almost encouraged. I’d put in Bonds and Clemens since Piazza, Ivan, and Bagwell (and others) are already in. I said Manny too, but maybe not since he was suspended post-Mitchell Report. I’d draw the line after that for getting in the Hall, so no Arod, Braun, or Cano.

    I wish the majority of players would just vote for: 1st offense- 1 yr. 2nd offense- lifetime ban. That might clean things up.

  8. I want a draft lottery system that is anti-tanking, and within that, trading picks is allowed.

    Theo Epstein Resigns; Hoyer Stays

    If he has some creative ideas to make the game more watchable, I’m all for him joining the League office. Smart guy who knows a lot of smart people that can study the impact of banning the shift, normalizing the baseball so line drive, opposite field homers don’t go 7 rows deep by adding weight to the ball/raising the seems. Robot umps. Possibly changing 60 ft 6 in to a different distance. A pitch clock that’s enforced...etc. The game needs a faster pace and fewer strikeouts and I think Theo knows that.

    He's not on the ballot. Minnie Minoso belongs in more than anyone not on the ballot, but we're not talking about him right now. BTW, there will be no committee votes this year, so La Russa and Reinsdorf can't campaign to get anyone in.

    2021 Hall of Fame Ballot

    Just want to add, even though I wouldn’t vote for Torii Hunter, out of the first timers on the ballot, I wouldn’t want to see him get less than 5% either. He needs a longer look.

    Good post. If Bobby Abreu got 5% last year, I really hope for the same for Buehrle this year. The way things are going in baseball, seeing 14 years of 200+ innings after the year 2000 is going to be hard to ignore as years go by.

    Short answer- Konerko is kinda like Mark Teixeira or Bobby Abreu. Great careers, but short of HOF in my opinion. Buehrle, as a pitcher from his era, compiled 15 years of durability, the no hitters, the 05 postseason was good, the fielding was outstanding, and he’s a quality human being if you’re going down that path.
