  1. I don't understand...can you not cut players? Deal with it.
  2. The one rule-change I've always thought would be a good idea, that I don't think is even a notion at this point, is a "# of pitcher minimum" in a nine inning game. Speeding up the game and marketing the game to millennials is one thing. But the starting pitcher is dying. An "opener" or a "bullpen" game was a cool idea when it was first implemented. But it's killing the starting pitcher, which has always been a staple of the sport. My proposal: Teams are only allowed to use 4 pitchers (or 5, I'm not set on a specific #) in a nine-inning game. You pull your pitcher after 5 innings, let alone 2 or 3 there, and there are consequences. Make it an advantage for a team when its starting pitcher goes 8 and 2/3 innings. Then you can mix and match to your heart's content to get the last four outs. But if your pitcher can only eke out 5 innings then, well, as opposed to having a cadre of relievers you can deploy over the next 4 innings, then you've got a tougher road ahead.
  3. That two year, $66 million extension worked out well.
  4. Extra inning rule is so dumb. Just have ties. Why is North America so averse to ties? Smh.
  5. So much for covid They said Freddie would be feeble this season, if he played at all.
  6. Parents named their kid Daulton and he ended up as a big league catcher. What are there odds?
  7. Good thing it’s only the Marlins. Most — including me — wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between their major league roster and taxi squad anyway.
  8. Is that correct? A “definitive day”? Doesn’t sound right.
  9. I probably wouldn't want to start him as a hitter on the days he pitches anyway. Odds are he wouldn't last long--even if all goes well, I'm guessing he does't go more than 5-6 IP. And then there's days like today...
