    MLB cheating scandal

    Well if you are talented, it could put you over the top against a playoff opponent. Obviously, if you suck, it won't help as much. The irony is that the Astros lost all 4 home games in the world series this year.

    On MLB the Show video game it is much easier to hit a fastball or off speed pitch if you know it is coming. It is like night and day. I can only imagine the same applies to real life batting.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    The Twins are going to be right there for the division. All hell would have to break lose for that not to happen.

    Who cares if we were competing for a player, we are competing against the team. This move doesn't mean the Sox didn't have a better off season either, or have a better future. But it does ensure Minnesota will be right there.

    We took a L last night, it is okay to feel salty right now. The Twins made a power move and will contend for at least the next two seasons. If we take care of our own business we will be okay in 2021 and moving forward.

    True, but if we are talking about 2020, then 2019 has to have a significant role. Otherwise, we have to downgrade Andserson, Moncada, and Giolito. Robert may be better than Buxton, but Buxton was having a really good year last season before getting hurt. Robert isn't better until he proves first. I expect him to, but as of now he is not.

    Sano is a first baseman now, so comparing their hitting, I'd give the edge to him. He was bad at third, but he will probably be better than Abreu at first. Being a team leader and not embarrassing the org helps, but how many wins can we place on that? How many can we take away?

    If Tim doesn't keep that .335 up he won't be better than Polanco. Robert is not better than Buxton, yet. And Abreu is not equal to Sano.

    The Twins are going to win our division by 8 to 10 games this year. I doubt our roster will be better prior to 2021.

    Pitchers didn't want to go there. So they added to the offense to make it unstoppable. They will probably still trade for a good pitcher sometime this season.

    Tigers Sign Ivan Nova - 1/$1.5M + incentives

    I would have liked to keep him for a bullpen role. But good shit getting that spot.

    White Sox future outlook thread

    Top 10 Teams according to ESPN 1. Yankees 2. Dodgers 3. Rays 4. Astros 5. Nationals 6. A'S 7. Braves 8. Cardinals 9. Twins 10. Mets 12. Indians 14. Cubs 16. White Sox: They are better, unquestionably, after adding Yasmani Grandal, Dallas Keuchel and Edwin Encarnacion, and re-signing Jose Abreu. But remember, they finished 28½ games behind Minnesota last year, and will need another big year from Lucas Giolito and a smooth re-entry for Michael Kopech as he returns from Tommy John surgery.

    Top 10 baseball videogames

    AKA, the game was banned lol. Just like NFL 2K was superior to Madden. NFL 2K5 is still better than the later Madden games from a fun perspective. The graphics were much smoother too.
