Re: MLB thread

I really hope baseball gets a deal done today. Very sad if they can't put their egos aside for the good of the game.

It's probably going to be a long year for the Nats but I don't care. I'm ready for some baseball. Seeing Max in a Mets uniform is going to hurt really bad. :-(

That parade and incredible 2019 run seems like it was 10 years ago.

Agreed. The start of baseball season is one of my favorite weeks of the year.

Re: MLB thread

According to Evan Drellich, Ken Rosenthal, and Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, MLB told the players on Monday that they have indicated a willingness to miss a month of games from the 2022 season.

The full extent of the conversation isn't yet known, but Drellich adds that MLB "took a more threatening tone" than they did during CBA negotiations on Sunday. Not exactly what you want to hear with MLB's self-imposed Monday deadline before regular season games will be canceled. It's easy to see this as a threat from the players' perspective, trying to test their will with the "deadline" rapidly approaching. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred recently said that missing games would be a "disastrous outcome for this industry," but apparently he's prepared to let that happen.

Manfred is a terrible commissioner

Re: MLB thread

Since we lost the first week of the season here is a fun list a number to retire for every team:

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...number-retired

Lot's of good names that deserve it but plenty in there just to fill the void.

Baltimore Orioles: Mike Mussina-This to me is a no brainer. Man deserves to be recognized at Camden Yards with the other Oriole HOF players. Yes I know he didn't go in as an Oriole but his career here was something special he wasn't a rental or stop gap.

You guys approve of your teams nod? If not who would you go with?

Keith Hernandez will be the first player from the 86 Mets to have his # retired this year and it's definitely well deserved. Can't argue against David Wright, dude was on a hall of fame pace until the injuries piled up.

This is just sad and pathetic on so many levels.

Re: MLB thread

Now let's get Free Agency started again. Interested to see where some of the remaining players land. Pretty impressive they are still going to play 162 games with the delay.

Re: MLB thread

Max got 3 years 130 mill. The Mets always look good on paper at the start of the year but never do a damn thing.. Glad we got the best years of Max, no way do the Mets get their money's worth.

Anaheim is like a graveyard. Rendon fell of the face of the earth once he signed there.

If the Dodgers sign Freeman I will die quite a bit inside.
