    I don't think it is. WAR accounts for positions and I don't agree that we should necessarily induct inferior players like Ortiz simply because their position is under represented. It's hardly a given...

    It's quite a stretch to say that his numbers are obviously Hall of Fame worthy. At best he's a very borderline case and to put a player like that in on the first ballot is as bad as the Harold Baines...

    David Ortiz was caught using steroids for god sakes. He got in because members of the media like his personality. If this was based on performance on the baseball field and ethics then he would be...

    You could divide Barry Bonds' career into 3 segments and all of them are better than David Ortiz. That's absolutely insane.

    We may see Dave Stieb and Carlos Delgado make it some day if this is the...

    So Bonds and Clemens are not in the Hall of Fame because they used steroids when they were not against the rules.

    However, David Ortiz is in the Hall of Fame because he used steroids when they...

    Greenwood has never been wrong about anything in his life. All of the players proposals were ludicrous. Ludicrous I tell you!

    It's very encouraging to me to see some concessions being made. Anyone...

    Both sides are using the threat of missed games as leverage. I think there's about a zero percent chance that this happens. It really shouldn't happen either. A sense of urgency is the only way...

    The two sides are meeting today. I'm not optimistic, but hopefully the meeting is actually a couple of hours and they discuss things like a normal bargaining session.

    I'm naturally optimistic. I'll say they go 20 minutes this time.

    I would strongly consider the second offer. Matt Champan is the perfect fit for this team in so many ways.

    I actually agree with a lot of that. Teams don't want to spend if it won't increase their revenue. That's exactly why you have to force them to do so. It doesn't matter if it's economically viable....

    I think you misunderstood what I meant a little bit. By consistent contender I don't mean that a team makes the playoffs every year. I mean they don't go into these massive cycles of losing driven by...

    I agree. A salary floor is a reasonable ask from the players and would be the most effective deterrent to tanking. They shouldn't leave the bargaining table without one.

    The way some of these...

    MLB pretty much offered status quo and the PA was not pleased with the proposal. This is a downright shocking development.

    I was a little vague with my paraphrasing, sorry. The proposal is to start at 600k next season and be at 700k by the end of this next CBA. It's not a whole lot better than status quo from what I can...

    MLB is expected to offer an increase in minimum salary to 600-700k and some superficial changes to qualifying offers. They are not going to address service time concerns at all.

    The PA is going to...

    Since when does one sentence constitute a rant? Also, a fantasy baseball columnist is not an expert on prospects. I put little stock into what a fellow fan has to say about players he has never seen....

    You're clearly the smartest person here and could actually play major league baseball, but you choose to grace us with your presence instead. We all bow to your infinite wisdom.

    I think we trade for an upcoming FA that Pete Walker belives in, similar to Matz last season. Joe Ross, Sean Manaea, and Chris Bassitt come to mind.
