Offspeed pitch - you dont ever see anyone get ejected for hitting someone with an offspeed pitch. I love it how people figure out ways around 'rules' (eg anyone who throws at an astros player will be ejected)
How ironic this will turn into a great advantage for the Astros. How long until every pitcher gets tossed even hitting a player by accident.

Seriously, if you're a tweeter and you're not following Trevor Bauer, you're not Twitter'ing properly.

Players are guaranteed a full 'years service' should no games be played this year - means Mookie Betts is a free agent next year etc. Not a bad result for the red sox in the end.

Another example is my Braves signing 1 year deals for Ozuna and Hamels - $18m each down the drain haha (presuming they get paid 100% of their contract which would be doubtful??)

I don’t mind this idea, realigning divisions according to location. 100 game season and expanded playoffs...

I dont read any articles with 'what could happen', especially AFL etc so didnt read the link, but my question:

Why do i keep hearing about a shortened season with expanded playoffs/finals??? seems dumb to expand playoffs, just play more normal season games.....

My guess is leagues are looking at ways to extend playoffs/finals series for 2021 onwards and lessen the H&A games.

The whole Houston scandal feels like a lifetime ago.
But here we are, ready to go again.

60 game season is extraordinary. Good teams can’t afford to have a poor run. Every game feels like it will carry a lot more meaning. From that point of view I’m intrigued about how it will play out.
