Spring training is almost upon us! Go Cubbies! Go White Sox!
Eh, what the hell, more snow on the way I want baseball season.
I like what I am hearing from our new Commissioner. He seems to really want to improve the game, unlike Selig who just about destroyed it.
The Mariner's will win the World Series in 2015.
I'm thinking Cubbies this year.
James Shields to San Diego.
James Shields reaches deal with Padres
NY Mets fan here.
I feel your pain. We have no shortstop, maybe they'll run some new alignment and have Murphy and Wright cover 2B and 3B with a 4th outfielder.
The fantasy league is up and running for 2015. PM me your interest. If you played last year you are in. Or visit the 2015 Baseball Fantasy thread.
Isn't it considered sacrilegious to support both the White Sox and the Cubs? Everyone I know from Chitown loves one, and hates the other.
Also, go Dodgers!
Let's Go Red Sox! Cuz we have no pitching.
Maybe the "5 okay starters" method is going to be the new brilliant strategy in baseball. Or maybe the Sox are going to have to mash their way to victories. Either way, I'm pretty excited about the revamped offense. Last year was pretty pathetic.
Mookie Betts for ROY!
It's an odd-numbered year. The Giants will take a mulligan. See you in 2016!
The NL West is shaping up to be a much more interesting race than it was in years past.
Will the Padres finish over .500? I certainly think so.
So, when you grow up and move away, you're just happy to have baseball.
Honestly, I have fond memories of both. I grew up watching the Cubs, went to more White Sox games.
In my early 20s I went to a ton of Cubs games when I lived down the street.
I just love baseball and Chicago.
As long as he takes back his comments on eliminating the shift. Stupid rule.
And the pitch clock too. Yuck.
I like the pitch clock idea, it should not take 5 minutes to throw a pitch. About the shift, yes I hate it. But if you are a batter and see the whole left side of the field is open HIT THE FREAKING BALL THERE! The best way to stop teams from using the shift is to bunt or hit the opposite say. You are a professional hitter, learn to hit.
That would be really stupid - and I say this as a fan of David "hits into the shift twice a game" Ortiz.
The pitch clock idea is great. But yeah, I'm with you. I really don't understand why they don't lay down bunts to that side every single time. There must be a good reason for it that we're missing and/or it must not be that easy. I'd do it all day and night until they stopped.
Here we go Yankees..... here we go!
I remember someone said, one way to beat the shift is to hit over it.
i have a good feeling about this season: 3 words: deGrom, harvey, wheeler
Kris Bryant, get to the majors now, please.
Pitching is one thing, but you need to back it up with an offense and 7 gloves behind him.
I also think part of it may be ego. Maybe they don't want to admit defeat?
We've been asking this question about Mark Texeira for a few years now. If he was already hitting for a high average and 60 home runs, I wouldn't mind, but he's definitely not. Take the hits and baserunners when they are handing it to you. You beat them a few times and they'll stop doing it. They have batting practice everyday. Take 20 minutes to lay down some bunts.
You can always bunt against it. Barry Bonds did that a few times, and Brandon Belt did it in the 2014 World Series.
You really think they are going anywhere this year ?
How can they lose with A Rod back .
The wishful thinking part of me says another WS Crown. Reality me, says they are going to be building and are probably a year or two out if not more.
A-Rod! Ha........ Almost choked on my coffee with that one.
