    2nd WC team in AL is going to be a 90+ win team this year by the looks of things. Royals, Orioles, Rays, Detroit, Texas, KC, A's and White Sox all look like 90-100 loss teams.

    Typing that just made me realize how bad baseball is right now.

    Taijuan Walker suffered a velocity drop, and left his start after 2 innings.

    That's because all the teams are following the Cubs and Astros by tanking; instead of trying to put together a somewhat decent team, that, if lucky and catches some breaks, makes the playoffs, they put together crappy teams in hopes of high draft picks. While that plan obviously worked for the Cubs and Astros, it won't work for everyone and makes baseball worse. The Yankees turned things around without purging their MLB team, and others should follow suit.

    Blindly suggesting that others should follow suit is pretty short sighted. The Orioles seem to be following suit...they refuse to rebuild. You follow them and let me know how that works over the next 5-10 years...

    Teams are all using advanced projection systems and now have a much better understanding of where they are on the "win curve". Teams with a 5-10% chance of making the playoffs are no longer going to go sign that aging, declining vet to a long term deal - which hampers their future - for such a low probability of success. They've also learned that adding that vet only increases their chances by a percentage point or two.

    This has to be the worst start of the season weather wise I can remember, 6 more games postponed today including the Yankees double header.

    I'm especially surprised by just how shitty the Royals and Texas lineups have been. It's hard to believe KC won a world series a couple of years ago by the look of their roster now. I realize that they have some key injuries, but their depth looks terrible.

    One team that I wouldn't be surprised if they're half decent is the Athletics though. Their pitching leaves a lot to be desired, but I think they have a pretty solid offense this year. I could potentially see them hovering around the 500 mark.

    I love how Jackie Robinson day went from being a movement to being a marketing ploy. $37.99 for a hat with the 42 logo and the already admitted by MLB "inappropiate" chief Wahoo logo.

    Current MLB Structure encourages teams to lose and lose a lot.

    There is really no incentives for these 8 teams to do better at all.
