    JaCoby Jones was a JR when Bregman was a FR at LSU in 2013. I remember people falling in love with him that year because he had a really nice frame and was "toolsy"

    he's off to quite a start so far for the Tigers with a .462 ISO and .562 wOBA. 3% BB% so far though

    MLB's blackout restrictions are so stupid. Apparently NBC Sports has some blackouts that apply to connected devices and local broadcasts. So some games you can't watch on a PS4 or laptop because you have to watch it on TV in the local market? I don't understand it at all but some of these Giants/A's games have been blacked out on my laptop despite the fact I have Xfinity and am clearly in their market

    wish there could be some massive protest by MLB fans against the blackout restrictions

    This happened to me when I had the NHL subscription. The Avs games are on Altitude and since that channel is offered by DirectTV (which I dont even use) they get blacked out on the NHL app.

    i hate that kapler was fired (and the season will likely be cancelled) because him trying to figure this out would be fantastic

    I'm not sure Manfred survives to negotiate the next CBA at this point. The players have such open disdain/disrespect for him, and he makes it worse every time he opens his mouth and says the worst possible thing. The only reason he keeps the job is owners are too stupid to move on.

    feel bad for the guy

    Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez will not pitch this season due to myocarditis, a heart inflammation issue which in his case stems from a COVID-19 infection earlier this year.

    The one thing Manfred has proven is that he's destroyed the PA in CBAs since he's been there. I can definitely see the owners not replacing him for that reason, and it's pretty clear at this point Manfred lacks the leadership skills to get them in line in order to make the kind of deal that would avoid a work stoppage.

    I see and agree with your first point, but I don't think it's going to be enough. Especially the way Adam Silver basically looks like a God right now comparatively.

    The downside if Manfred is fired is the PA is going to use the same strategy with the new guy before the next CBA. That's where a lot of this started, and Manfred is just such an awful public speaker that he's made it 10x worse over the last year or so. I'm not sure a new commish has a chance to be liked if he's walking into a CBA negotiation that's doomed before it starts. Almost makes more sense to keep Manfred to be the fall guy, and then let the new commish step into more sturdy ground to start.

    when this season eventually gets cancelled or MLB becomes a huge example for trying and not containing, I think these super rich guys won't have a choice but to make him the fall guy quickly.

    He's just so bad publicly that it compounds the results we are seeing.

    Eric Hosmer has missed all but 2 games this year with the same. Last I saw it was a total mystery what was going on. Hopefully for Bryant, it’s just some laxative from Rizzo for stealing his dream girl

    And Grienke has been topping out at like 90 this year, right? Amazing how he can just keep finding ways to be really good.

    A's have dropped three straight. Khris Davis being back in the lineup should definitely help them snap that skid
