  1. Morse code won't work. It would need to be a smart watch type transmitter. Wear the transmitter on the glovehand wrist facing in. Catcher will be able to send transmission from his wristband which can be as large as a 4" playcalling sheet. They can still mix in some signage for location if necessary. I'd say a display that showed a number will work fine.
  2. He only played 120 because he didn't play NL games and was on the DL. He sprained his wrist in May and also missed time later in the year when it flamed up in August. He plays full time DH. I know this because he helped win my league 😎
  3. Well, I mean yes... Players policing themselves is literally the definition of what a vigilante is lol 😆 vig·i·lan·te /ˌvijəˈlan(t)ē/ noun a member of a self-appointed group of citizens who undertake law enforcement in their community without legal authority, typically because the legal agencies are thought to be inadequate. You say vigilantism as if it's a bad thing. When its literally just players policing themselves and holding each other accountable because the MLB obviously had zero interest in holding a single player accountable. "Baseball is a red-blooded sport for red-blooded men. It's no pink tea, and mollycoddles had better stay out. It's a struggle for supremacy, a survival of the fittest." -Ty Cobb
  4. Ugliness? Guys developed elaborate illegal schemes to take awards, money, wins, and championships from other players... It doesn't get worse. The fans paid hard earned money to watch a farce. ...and yet those players responsible skate scott free. Hardnose baseball and drilling cheating scoundrels isn't ugliness, is justified punishment -- if the players don't police themselves it will never go away.
  5. I hope this year is filled with pitchers drilling hitters and brawls. I hope Bregman and Altuve get drilled so much they gotta take some time off with sore ribs. Especially that smug Bregman.
  6. @tonycpsu wow! Clevinger! Excellent, well said my man!! Love it!
  7. No offense, but it's kind of naive to assume he's getting low dose general public levels after what we learned in the Mitchell Report fiasco. Guys have been routinely supplied by doctors performance enhancing levels.
  8. Well it technically wasn't against the rules previously... MLB issued a new rule banning cameras from foul pole to foul pole. It's not picking and choosing, it's enforcing a new rule and punishing teams that have been discovered/reported of violatingbsaid rule. That simple. I agree, buzzer or LED or smart watch type device to vibrate, light up, or display signal. I think this would also increase pace of play dramatically. No more changing signs, sequencing, etc. Just boom comminicated pitch.
  9. Hmm... Could be that the premier player in the league with freakish athleticism and unmatched power/speed blend has a special exemption for a high powered PED. Your inference that a medical exemption merely gives him a level playing field is just silly. ...IF there's even truth to any of it.
  10. I wonder if MLB knew of how extensive things were and knew many others were as well, felt forced to investigate and punish Astros due to what was reported but purposely didn't punish players did it didn't turn into everyone pointing fingers at each other for all the dirty deeds ongoing.
  11. Would be nice if it were true, but the scaling is wrong on the overlay. For example, Sun Trust is 335 down the line, yet his flies shy of the warning track are closer to the 339 wall at Target. CF is another example of incorrect scaling. However, even though the overlay is wrong, the RF power alley is going to shorten up big time for him. Looks like a benefit dimension-wise, just not as much as illustrated.
  12. Too bad he's now in the same team as the Twins pitching staff 😂
  13. Come on, don't be disingenuous. There's a world of difference between recording a guy and watching a guy standing on 3B purposely doing signals out in the open for the world to see and watching him over multiple games and rigging your stadium with high definition spy cameras to peer in at hidden signals to view on a monitor in your dugout area in live time to relay to the hitter. Again, no absolutely no one is arguing about whether you can steal signs, he's moving the goal posts and using examples that have literally nothing to do with the Astros scheme what so ever and at no point does he even address what the Astros actually did. What he said is literally the definition of a straw man argument. His comments aren't worthy of discussion. "A straw man is a form of argument and an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent."
  14. If you are expecting the Twins to bench Nelson Cruz once a week, you are going to be disappointed.
  15. It amazes me the Astros never traded for Brett Gardner... Dude was a perfect fit for their system.
