Bob Watson, former All-Star and championship GM, dies at 74

A good player and a class act - interesting statistic: he was the first player to hit for the cycle in both leagues.

A quick look on like found a number of different dino mascots. I think that must have been a one-off kitty. From the videos, one of those mascots can really dance.

Many of my sport team picks are based on people I know who could beat me up (pretty much anyone). So sign me up for the Dinos. Makes sense, anyway, because I have a geology degree.

 
We might be stuck with Korean baseball for a while, seeing the MLB plan for splitting revenues 50-50 team/players. I don't see the players going for that at all, especially when the main revenue source isn't allowed to go to the stadiums. Exactly where are these revenues gonna come from? What a mess.

They can just scrap the season as far as I'm concerned. 80 games, no fans in stadiums, players concerned about COVID, MLBPA will have to approve everything, blah blah blah.

Hey, it ain't all that most likely, but it's something to watch. It's the top baseball league in Korea. The only live "sports" I've seen in 55 days is horse racing from a few tracks that are open, with no crowd in the stands. And watching a bunch of claimers run when you don't have any money riding on one of them is really not very exciting. At all.

When I try to get across to people what an intense baseball fan my dad was I will often claim that he completely understood the balk rule.  The basic idea is that if you let pitchers be as deceptive as they want to be you will eliminate stolen bases altogether.  A lot of stuff though like accidentally dropping the ball after you've come set shouldn't really be there.  So yeah, it still needs some work.

  I wasn't really fond of that one either, but at least it was sort of in the general spirit of the balk rule.  I do though want to see four pitches for intentional walks for those one time in a hundred moments.  I think anything that involves a clock has absolutely no place in the game.  I'm going to miss sending in a loogy if for no other reason than I just like the word and I think you all know by now not to get me started on the DH.
 
 

 
 Is the plural of loogy loogies or loogy? 
 
loogys I think.

I don't like the automatic walk (whatever they call it) either because freak plays are cool but I will say that if you're on offense it's kind of nice because if you're feeling momentum, you really don't give the pitcher a chance to settle down. The guy in the hole has to be a little more ready, too.

Like the fake throw to third, whirl and throw to first. Not allowed anymore. Why? Sure, 99 times out of 100 it was a waste of time, but once in a while it almost works and I've seen it work a couple of times, I think. If it becomes a game of no smarts, just pure athletics, there's no room for an average kid to dream anymore.
