    It’s that time of year again. Last year on the ballot for Schilling, Bonds, and Clemens. 
     

    I’d vote for the three mentioned, plus Rolen, Helton, Kent, Buehrle, Hunter, Hudson, Rollins

    Jon Morosi and I usually pick HOF very similarly. He has Ortiz, Jones and Sheffield. I have Hudson, Hunter, and Helton. Otherwise, the same. 

    I really haven’t been following the tracking that much this time around. I guess Ortiz making it wouldn’t be awful, but it’s going to be close. I could see him being a second year pick. He’s really the only one with a chance of making it. 

    January 25 will be announcement night.

    If there is a work stoppage that lasts until.. say.. 5/1, would the season begin as the schedule says against those opponents, or would they change the schedule similarly to 2020 for the Covid shortened year?

    They would probably have to make some adjustments so each team has an equal amount of games- home and away. I’m optimistic they’ll get it figured out in February and start on time. Too much to lose if they don’t.


  3. Looks like MLB Network will be moving to alternate programming, and the Field Of Dreams game will be on tomorrow night (abridged version).

    On when they’ll make an agreement…if I have to guess a 7-day period, I’ll take Feb 15-21. That’ll get them enough time to get players signed, and shorten spring training a little.

    I do wonder if the Sox can get Story on a reasonable deal at this point. His market appears to be drying up and still has Correa in front of him. I have my concerns about him, but he is still a massive upgrade at the position. 

    I think Story is staying at SS. He’d be smart to sign somewhere for a year to prove he can play at a high level outside Denver, and then hit free agency again next year.
