Here we are again. Pitchers and catchers have reported to spring training and position players will be filing in in the coming days.

Mookie is a Dodger.
Gerrit Cole is a Yankee.
Everyone hates the Astros.
The Red Sox still don’t have a manager.

I look forward to this season of Astros players being asked tough questions as they squirm, lots of brawls at their games and them being thrown at repeatedly.

I also eagerly await Rob Manfred’s punishment of the Red Sox for their cheating 2018 season. :arrogant

MLB gang let us all congregate for what is sure to be an interesting season.

This is gonna be wild this year.

the hatred that the Astros will get around the majors.

The AL Central is the most underrated division.

The Yankees better win the East by at least 20 games

It’s going to be an interesting season this year. I wonder which team will be the ones to pop off on the Astros. Will they face Bauer or Clevinger this season?

Baur is in Cincinati now. I don't know if they're scheduled for interleague play with the Astros. Clevenger definitely unless the Dodgers get him. I read they may trade for him.

Lately, they are always making changes. Manfred is trying too many things. 3 batter minimum, pitch clock, moving back the mound, umpires wearing mics and now this. Give me a break. Trevor Bauer made a great video going off on Manfred.

Beltran got away with murder. :laugh2

Not even a slap on the wrist for him and he was running this shit. I hope Cora does a tell all interview about his partner in crime when Manfred drops the hammer.

The Mets did the right thing. Can you imagine them having to comment on this today in St Lucie if Beltran was managing?

Yeah, I’m happy Beltran isn’t managing my time. So happy this scandal exploded because there’s no doubt in my mind that he would have tried that mess here.

Also I can’t stand Rob Manfred. There are two kinds of people. Those who like baseball and those who don’t. All he does is try to alienate those who like baseball to attract people who are never going to like the sport. Regardless if they shaved off a couple of seconds off of the game, or come out with some playoff gimmick.

Sounds like the Democrats. : unamused:

The Astros had all this time to come up with a plan on how they were going to address this. So what did they come up with? They send to players out to give like one line apologies. I mean why even bother? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I was listening to MLB network on seriusxm, and they were dragging the Astros, from the owner on down.

Apparently they had a team meeting last night to get their talking points in order. Only one player mentioned the word cheat, and whenever they were asked specifically how what they did affected individual players (like Kershaw) they all said to a man that "this is about us".

Oh y’all like Alex now? lol

That would be cool if he bought the team though. But I’m selfish. I’m tired of my faves joining other team organizations.


I was a fan of ARod until he went to you know where. I can’t say it’s the ultimate debacle for us considering our best players ended up there too to win championships. But it’s no secret he grew up a Mets fan. Hernandez was his fave. And they of course blew it after the 2000 season when he was a FA. Every Met fan remembers the 24 and 1 excuse. I’m sure they’ll find a way to screw him out of it like they did Cohen.
