    Quite possibly the worst article I've read in a long long long time. That was all around bad journalism.

    A Steve Simmons article getting its own thread on here might make this the darkest day in the history of BJMB.

    Can a mod please smite this atrocity out of existence?

    What are you guys so upset about? Reality hurts…. What in the article is incorrect or not true.

    Pretty spot on.

    At the very least I fail to see what’s so egregious about it

    I haven’t followed but I’m sure there’s all sorts of Aaron Boone articles some NY fans may hate. When you have an underperforming team it comes with the territory, geez

    There's nothing factually incorrect

    It's just all speculation and absolutely terribly written is all

    Calling the AL weak is pretty incorrect. How can you say that when the Rays, White Sox and Astros look so damn good and the Athletics and the Red Sox are squeezing everything they can out of their teams and then you got the Indians, Yankees and Angles all looking to compete for a wild card.

    Is is relative and it is the weakest it has been in a while. Houston is a surprise, Tampa also after the loss of guys in the off season. The CWS are the only ones who are where people probably thought they would be. AL vs NL a lot more “power house” teams in the NL, or supposed to be anyway, this year.

    I dont think there are alot of powerhouse teams in the NL. The Dodgers sure but the Giants and the Padres powerhouses? Hardly. Giants have a bunch of veterans playing way over their heads who are gonna fade in the second half, and the Padres got a poor offense even with a healthy Tatis and if he goes down for a significant time...woof. Any team in the east? If you squint maybe the Mets but can you seriously expect Stroman and Walker to keep pitching like cy youngs? Not one team in the central is very good.

    Interesting read, Charlie is 100% perfect #2 man in command. just like he was in TB. Very likable and positive. As a head man I do not think he gets the respect from umpires or players. i think the manager needs to be a leader, charasmatic, command a room, put the fear a little into players and umpires if things aren't done correctly. Charlie is not this.

    I would like the flip flop of Charlie and Schnieder but obviously this would never happen.
    We will have a new manager next season though.

    Didn't read the article, but the 2nd WC team in the AL right now is currently 43-29. If Manfred got his wish and had a 14 team expanded playoffs, the final playoff spot in the AL would go to the Yankees at 38-33. It's not a weak AL. If anything there are more average-good teams (to go along with the really good/great teams) than in previous years where there were a lot of bad teams that resulted in inflated win totals for the actual good teams. Probably won't see that this season.
