  1. I would ban the steroid users, etc. who cheated the game and nullify their career numbers. Career home run leader is Hank Aaron. Period. The gonzo stats put up by chemical cheaters belong in their own category. Say that Bonds is the career leader in home runs among the banned but don't compare his career numbers to those who didn't cheat their way to elevate themselves from "great player but not someone who would ever rewrite anything in the record books" to "legend who re-wrote the record books and put up numbers that no clean player will likely ever touch." If Rose bet on baseball o
  2. This seems like the absolute best approach. Will likely require some manufacturing adjustments from their suppliers but making it so the balls are pre-treated and nothing else is permitted is the cleanest solution by far.
  3. Do you guys think Clase still owns a share of the role in Cleveland or have they full on moved to Karinchak at this point?
  4. Pretty sure you cursed him to the IL.
  5. If he looked back and realized he missed it, should have just walked back and stepped on it. Not that hard.
  6. Same. Very frustrating. Kind of a worst case to never play but not get definitive word that he is going to be out. Just have to cross my fingers that we'll see him again with the ability to play meaningful amount of the remaining season.
  7. Anything new on him? Could really use his bat in the lineup.
  8. It is definitely fair to point out that he is striking out less often recently even if his K:BB ratio is still ghastly during that period. For example, his last 6 games have a terrible 6:0 ratio but 6 k's over 6 games is probably the most you can hope for. Based on how he has been playing lately, the ratio could be said to be more a reflection of him just not walking rather than an indication of excessive strike outs. It is still something I'm going to monitor on him but probably better to focus on the strikeout metrics.
  9. My biggest worry is still that K/BB ratio. Over the last 28 days (just my easy sorting point but maybe not so far off from the 31 games above), he has 26 K's against 2 BB's. I've got lots of OF injuries and I still just don't know if I can get behind him again. On the season he is 62:7 so this really hasn't changed this year. Last year's 30:11 wasn't great but it was much better than what we've seen from him this season.
  10. CBS lists him as probable for today. Has anyone heard anything to confirm?
  11. It isn't like Ohtani isn't capable of playing OF. Not a big risk position. My hope is they recognize how special his bat is and ease him into this for the long run. Would be good to see him regularly play OF when not pitching during visits to NL parks.
  12. His OPS over the last two weeks is .940 so while the counting stats haven't been great this seems like a good sign for the rest of the season.
  13. He's just over .900 OPS over the last three weeks and over .1100 over the past week. 7 walks against 10 K's over 3 weeks. Encouraging.
