That would be a reasonable guess. There is a lot left to do with all the off-season activities that were frozen in December. Like, signing all the free agents. And the off-season training. I haven't even kept up with the issues and I don't know which side to support, but I kind of don't care any more. Sacrilege.

Love it or hate it (and I know those here that hate it) the universal DH seems to be one thing both sides agree on. The next time NL teams take the field it is highly likely that there will be a DH spot in the lineup.
Papi is arguably the best DH ever - you wouldn't get an argument from me, of course - and well deserving of first ballot. Pedroia threw some great shade when talking about his induction, said he loved playing in the World Series with him as he got to play both second and first base.

Sure. Same sort of reasoning too. I wonder why they waited for Buck O'Neill to die though.

Because Buck's stats didn't "count" until 2020.

Baseball bans the guy with the most hits for doing something they now advertise for during the games.

Bonds was a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer before he took steroids, yet is banned because he did something that helped save the game from its post-strike lack of interest in the '90s.  

The Hall of Fame is going the way of the Grammy's and the Golden Globes.... people just don't really care so much anymore.

I'm a few years older than Piazza, but minus the belt buckle that same outfit was in my closet (including the sweet jacket with the patches on it).   It's funny to see the '76 logo over Schmidt's shoulder...now being used by the Sixers for a few years.  Thx

Crazy day in free agent signings ahead of the collective bargaining agreement expiring. Scherzer went to the Mets, and Gausman went to the Blue Jays after apparently turning down a better offer from the Mets. Hoping the Giants scouting/computer has some more scrap heap arms in their sights...

In Water-is-Wet news, Gabe Kapler is NL Manager of the Year. John Madden used to say the manager who won the Series or the Super Bowl is by definition the manager of the year. There's something to that, but not this year. I don't remember watching any game and thinking "that's absolutely the wrong move." Some were interesting, some didn't work out, but they almost always made sense.



Wouldn't surprise me if the BoSox try to woo Kapler after Alex Cora moves on. Kapler was very popular here as a reserve player and the front office really liked him as its Single A manager.
