getting a DUI at 76 is amazingly sad alcoholism, surprised he’s still alive
White Sox players should honestly make a joint statement saying they refuse to play for TLR. They have too good of a thing going to deal with this nonsense
Tim Anderson is so beloved in the clubhouse he can pull this off. Especially now that McCann is gone, he’s a crazy religious trumper and would’ve stopped it
Stroman publicly telling the White Sox to not even call his agent...... oi
That would be amazing
Fuck Jerry Reinsdorf
Of course after Abreu wins the MVP, maybe he should be the one to lead the revolt.
AL MVP says fuck you to old drunk manager would be great
Twitter saying Cohen crushed the presser today.
He went Hulk Hogan on him
Not great, Tony
i think he had more than a glass of wine if you're asking me
I’m a Hall of Fame baseball person
I'm a legit baseball person
The Florida is strong in this one
What’s the backstory on Passan’s beef with TLR?
He had a glass before he drove to that dinner brother. He’s a hall of famer.
I can speak for teel when I say I have never, under any circumstances, felt this good about any off-season for any team. Our owner is ruthless, intelligent, and willing to build. This doesn't even seem real.
lol Mets are doing that thing they do again.
So, Ex-Rays is gonna be a thing. Went and visited the future stadium site yesterday.
Stroman is taking the QO from the Mets. Good decision for him, IMO.
Stro is back in my good graces, lets do it
Assuming Gausman either takes the QO, or is closing in on some kind of long 2-3 year deal with SF if he doesn't.
Means Bauer, Realmuto, Springer and LeMahieu are the four who will cost draft pick compensation, and I doubt that stops anyone.
Deadline for accepting the QO is today at 4 PM
Just need some relievers. And an upgrade on defense but so many of the bats would be hard to keep off the lineup.
And that is a lot of money for someone who relies so much on groundballs.
I apologize to my #NLstrong boys but praying for the DH to come back, that is a real issue
#Los Angeles Dodgers
pretty amazing to have him memorialize the season. So lucky to still have him around.
Funny how Bauer cheated and was rewarded with the Cy Young.
These baseball writers need to cut the bullshit and put guys like Bonds, Clemens into the hall of fame.
What did Bauer do?
Pine tar on his glove like most pitchers.
Not in the same ballpark as roid'n imo
Figured that was it. I've been against it in the past but at this point it seems like MLB doesn't care so I can't blame any pitcher for doing it. It just seems accepted now.
Yea, the spin rates on a lot of pitchers pitches was pretty damn insane this year if I’m not mistaken.
How does the pine tar not show up on the ball though?
Not sure if they are still using it, but at one point Bullfrog sunscreen was the preferred method. Mixed with sweat and it gets super sticky.
He added 400 rpms to his fastball. No biggie
Not that uncommon these days. Pine tar/sunscreen has been rampant for years now. In fact, Bauer has been the most outspoken about it but MLB doesn't seem to care. I know you're just mad about him winning over Yu but I guarantee you someone on your staff uses it.
Once again you missed the point entirely
Tell us your point.
Didn't Bauer in 2019 have a start where he came out with pine tar or some other substance and pitched a few innings and then went back to without just to show the difference in spin rate?
The same people who are punishing the likes of Bonds and Clemens... riding that white horse turn around and reward a obvious cheater. Cut the bullshit and let guys like Bonds and Clemens into the HOF.
Ahh so it has nothing to Bauer beating out Darvish, its really about equating pine tar to steroids. Got it.
Bauer was very anti substance and compared it to using steroids in the past. Listen I don’t give a shit about the cheating. I didn’t when Sammy and Mark saved baseball. I didn’t with Bonds. I don’t really care now. It’s clear baseball never gave a fuck or will.
The baseball writers can’t have it both ways and they truly are hypocrites
Congratulations to Trevor Bauer on his apparent election to the Baseball Hall of Fame
I guess you really want to have this convo... you could’ve easily awarded the Cy to Bauer, Yu or DeGrom I doesnt bother me either way. Him winning only highlights the hypocrisy of the writers association.
Statistically speaking Yu had a better season. He also pitched on a team who made the playoffs for whatever that may mean. As a Cubs fan did I want him to win sure. But that isn’t my point. If it was I wouldn’t just said just that. I’m pretty blunt with my opinion no need to skirt around the issue
Glad we got to what you really wanted to say.
The Reds also made the playoffs
This conversation is very odd. This isn't like PEDs. It's not close. But it's also weird that dblplay1212 complained for years about how the Astros' pitchers were cheating by using substances like this that improved their spin rates, and that doing so naturally was basically impossible. Now it's no big deal?
Let's all just pretend this convo never started and wait for people to get mad about whoever wins the MVPs tomorrow.
