    Should be a no doubt hall of famer, especially if he wins the Cy Young this season.
    MLB should investigate the Astros organization.

    AL is -18 in interleague this year? Still early, but that's a little surprising. Wonder how long that will last.

    This is interesting:
    This spring, the league quietly experimented with a baseball with more tack, according to B/R sources. It wasn't done in exhibition games, and those with knowledge of the experiment say one of the myriad issues that arose was the darker color of the balls, making them more difficult for hitters to see.Baseballs used in Japan are universally acknowledged to have more tack than MLB balls, which can be trickier at times to handle, especially in cold weather, not only because the MLB balls are more slippery, but also because the seams are lower. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny, a member of MLB's Competition Committee, says Japanese studies on tackier baseballs are producing data pointing to fewer arm injuries.

    So they secretly changed the balls yet again.

    Holy fuck, this front office can suck many dongs.

    Machado just ruined Price's complete game shutout with two outs in the ninth. He still finished with under 100 pitchers though.

    Over the past two seasons the best pitcher of the David Price for Daniel Norris trade has been Matt Boyd.

    Legit or no?

    I hope Upton didn't break his hand tonight.

    He does strike out a lot, I guess? IDK.

    Longenhagen sucks.

    Upton is about a career .270 hitter in an age where league average is ~.245. If anything he’s above average.

    Yeah I'd have a hard time putting a 40 hit tool on a hitter as good as Upton
