    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

    Of course after Abreu wins the MVP, maybe he should be the one to lead the revolt.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
