  1. 2015-2016 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    I didn't see a thread yet so I figured I'd kick one off with this trade: http://m.mlb.com/news/article/156606096/mariners-rays-complete-six-player-trade

  4. MLB Requires Teams to Provide Interpreters for Spanish Speaking Players

    MLB has put forward a new initiative that requires each of the 30 teams to provide a full-time interpreter for Spanish speaking players. The article is worth a read because this initiative was spearheaded by Carlos Beltran and what inspired it was the Michael Pineda pine tar incident a couple of seasons back. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/14/sports/baseball/mlb-orders-spanish-interpreters-for-latino-players.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share

  5. Griffey, Piazza Elected to Hall of Fame

    http://www.baseballhall.org/hof/class-of-2016 Congratulations to both of them. As for former Yankees, Mike Mussina's numbers jumped by 18.4% to 43.0% which was the highest jump of any player on the ballot. Bodes well for him for the future. Tim Raines received 69.8%, which left him 23 votes shy of election. He'll probably make it in next year, which will be his final year on the ballot. Clemens jumped but not as much as expected. There's a chart at the link I posted with all voting...

  6. More PED Usage Claims (Ryan Howard, Ryan Zimmerman, etc.)

    ryan howard, ryan zimmerman, taylor teagarden... pretty irrelevant names, but interesting nonetheless... is anyone really surprised anymore when stuff like this comes out into the open? http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/report--ryan-howard-and-ryan-zimmerman-linked-to-doping-ring-031121195.html peyton manning is a bigger name though... wonder how one of the golden boys of the NFL handles this all of this is alleged, of course... lawyers are already coming out with...

    What an atrocity to baseball that jerseys like these are going to be worn by pros. These ugly metallic looking jerseys look like something out of little league.

  8. OTL Report: Pete Rose Bet on Games he Played in as Player

    http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/13114874/notebook-obtained-lines-shows-pete-rose-bet-baseball-player-1986 As the thread title indicates, OTL has found hard evidence that Rose bet on baseball while he was a player, including betting on games involving his own team in which he played. Good thing this came out before MLB made a mistake and softened its stance.

  10. Is Everyone's DH Opinion Follow their Fan Allegiance?

    I have been following the debate about the designated hitter for 40 years. Personally, I much prefer having it. I like seeing 9 major league hitters and keeping the pitcher for pitching, but of course others disagree. I was wondering recently whether people mostly like the rule followed by the league that their favorite team belongs to. When I see and hear people debating this subject, It seems that fans of NL teams mostly watch NL games and are used to it, and hate the DH. Fans of AL...

  14. Playoffs Thread

    Figured we need one of these to muse about the games as they transpire. Arrieta got a dose of his own medicine there. He hits two Pirates, and then takes issue with getting thrown at? Shut up and take your base, Jake.

  15. What is ahead for Baseballs future?

    Let me simply present two or three issues and I'd ask each of you to expand on them and feel free to add more. Before I begin, I am a baseball fan first and foremost and will remain so for the rest of my life. 1. Baseball is skirting into dangerous and costly waters by offering longer and more expensive contracts. A prime example is Robbie Cano's 10 year $240 million contract. Another is ARods 10 year $252 million contract with Texas in 2001 Add Pujols 10 year $250 million contract...

  17. Report: Zack Greinke to opt out of contract with Dodgers

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/13907905/zack-greinke-opt-deal-los-angeles-dodgers 31 years old. One of the most consistent pitchers in baseball. Would you make a run for him? What's the most years you'd go? He has/had 3 years left on his old deal, at $26MM/Year. I might go 5/140 on him, but no longer than that. Thoughts?

  19. 30 Year Old GM - David Stearns of Brewers

    Brewers announced today they hired David Stearns as their GM. He is 30 years old. Heck, he's younger than some of the players around the league. Am I the only one who finds this awesome? I hope he does well.
