    2020 MLB Season

    Teams will likely lose more money next year- I doubt things will be back to full capacity until 2022, so I doubt there will be a lot of spending going on. My take.

    I think you’re referring to Mike Shannon. Don’t care for him, but he’s been there forever, so the Cardinals fans must love him.

    Speaking of the Padres- has anybody gotten the chance to listen to Ted Leitner, their radio voice? He’s affectionately referred to as Uncle Teddy by his radio partners. He and Uecker are the most entertaining play-by-play guys on the air today.

    You are correct- the Padres are the only current franchise in baseball that doesn’t have a 9 inning no-no thrown by 1 pitcher.

    2020 MLB Season

    The scripted pitching change that you guys are talking about- this practice should have been criticized when the Brewers manager took Wade Miley out in game 2 of the NLCS a couple of years ago. The manager contributed to blowing that game, and the series with his over-managing. Glad to hear Cash...

    The Braves had better figure out how to close out series, and soon (that loss to the Cardinals in last year’s NLDS was terrible- they had game 4 won, and choked it away).

    Good point about Manfred should have tried to disqualify the Asterisks for the postseason, but I think the MLBPA would’ve fought that tooth and nail.

    Excellent post, sir. Manfred should tell those players and that organization behind closed doors to just keep their opinions to themselves. If I had the opportunity to respond to Correa’s comment, my response would be “I don’t have anything to say- I stopped following sports. I’d rather stop...

    2020 MLB Season

    No- I haven’t seen any baseball. I was a fan who would be comfortable in Missouri- show me. My take is a team that constantly loses to another team has to prove to me that they can get over the hump.

    When I saw the headline that the Rays beat the Yanks, I thought the reporter was joking, and he needed a stern reprimand. :P

    Someone at another site posted that Ford was a truly nice guy. By my count, he appeared in 11 World Series (it would have been 13, except he missed the 1951 and 1952 seasons due to military service).

    I grew up listening to/watching Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn doing Phillies games in the 70s. The broadcasters of the past are a tough act to follow.

    2020 MLB Season

    I really Hope most Cubs fans don’t buy into that Bartman stuff- if they think a fan is more responsible than a SS who couldn’t make a pee-wee league catch, then they are tragically clueless.

    2020 MLB Season

    I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but Cubs SS Alex Gonzalez is SO much more a culprit in that collapse, and the team lacked character (if that team saw Chapman give up the tying HR to Rajai Davis in game 7 of the 2016 World Series, the game would still be going on, with the Indians leading...

    Will Pujols join Mariano Rivera as the only unanimous vote into the Hall Of Fame? Probably not, but a case can be made that Albert deserves that honor.

    Expanded playoffs should definitely mean a reduced regular season. 154 games will likely be approved.

    2020 MLB Season

    The pitch clock will have to be forced upon the players, which isn’t going to happen. A few years ago, there was a rule that the batters had to stay in the batter’s box, and the umpires were enforcing it- for 1 year. That came to an end. I guess the players were bitching about it, so it’s no...

    2020 MLB Season

    It goes against the tradition of the game, and most other sports have adopted extra play that decides a winner, which means to me that the people who run the sports leagues have determined that ties are an unsatisfactory ending for a big % of the fans. My take.

    2020 MLB Season

    Universal DH- not a fan, but it’s inevitable Three batter minimum- hate it Suspended games- fine Extra innings rule- not a bad idea to do this after the 11th inning Double headers- leave them at regulation 9 innings, and do the base runners starting in the 10th inning.

    2020 MLB Season

    Yes more teams in the postseason is one of several reasons why I’m just not interested. Both baseball and football are ignoring the traditions of the game with the changes being made (there won’t be the kickoff in the NFL for much longer, which will significantly change the game). Baseball was...

    About the cardboard cutouts- on today’s Trunk Nation show on SiriusXM Volume, Trunk’s producer Ed Robinson mentioned that at one of the stadiums (he didn’t recall the team), there was a cutout of Bernie Lomax (Weekend At Bernie’s). Hilarious! I can see Bernie sitting there with his little...

    I still don’t understand how or why A Rod was given that job- he is a poster board for what was wrong with the game (attitude and PEDs), and he stinks at the job.

    Do you have any clue what he was trying to say? I can’t get one from this sentence.

    Seems that a shutdown is likely if there are more positive tests, and more postponements.

    2020 MLB Season

    Kelly did low-bridge an Asterisk player. Manfred and baseball should be called out on why these teams were scheduled to play each other this season.

    2020 MLB Season

    Was this about a pitch that low-bridged an Asterisk? For those who are still watching- was this a good idea to pit these two teams against each other this season with a reduced amount of games, and the cheating scandal that is still fresh in the players minds? IMO- no, it wasn’t smart. In fact...

    That’s a funny name, and an appropriate one- The Asterisks.

    Yes I feel the same way- not only about baseball, but all sports right now (I canceled the NFL Sunday Ticket).
