Permissible? You can say whatever you want. I'm conveying an opinion about someone else opinion. It's like listening to a rich person who's house got robbed and they start demanding retributions that have zero precedent.

We didn't strip roid users of awards. So, why here?  When the benefits are even less provable? His numbers improved both at home and road from 2017-2018. The best # you can tangably point too is Betts 4% difference in BB rate between road and home in 2018. When he did not have such a split in 2019.

Even that is still not objective proof due the random nature of baseball numbers. He inferenced that is was a major boost though and used 2017 has his baseline(his down year) Painting that narrative to it's extreme. If he had suggested a small boost. I wouldn't bother saying anything because that isn't really dis-agreeable.

Why not respond with this opinion initially instead of labeling a swath of fans as “obnoxious” for disagreeing?

Does it get any more METS than Beltran being a manager for 0 games?

 

Belichick coached exactly zero games for the Jets before going on to a Hall of Fame career.

A little cheating now and then didn't hurt him much along the way.

More on Beltran:

Quote

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms that Carlos Beltran is stepping down as Mets manager.

Beltran is the third manager to lose his job in the wake of MLB's investigation into the Astros' sign-stealing scandal, and he goes out having never managed a game in Queens. The former outfielder is facing no formal discipline from Major League Baseball, but the story obviously became a big distraction for the Mets as they prepare for the 2020 season. Hensley Meulens, who was hired as bench coach in late November, could make sense as an internal candidate to fill the sudden opening. Luis Rojas is another internal option. Eduardo Perez finished runner-up to Beltran for the Mets' managerial gig and could be looked at again.

It's a shame, because she's great on ESPN's game coverage, even if you don't apply the "anyone sounds better on a broadcast team that includes A-Rod" curve.  But simultaneously pretending you can be both an advisor to an MLB team and a commentator on issues directly affecting that team without creating a massive conflict of interest isn't fooling anyone.

I didn't agree with revoking their trophy before but this is true just nuke it from orbit. The whole season was trashed.

Well, not sure if the Orioles franchise existed in the third century C. E.

I wish Mr. Ortiz well in his continuing efforts to figure out who doctored his beverages.  I believe  he owes the media an update at this point.

That seems unnecessarily antagonistic - what’s wrong with what I wrote?

Don’t get me wrong - I’m glad you’re at least admitting the Sox cheated.

Nothing by me.  It is Jessica Mendoza who hates Mike Fiers for exposing the Houston thing.  That's the whole point of my comment.  Read the article.
