    Houston should win this. They're a better team. But that hasn't mattered so far and doesn't seem to matter tonight

    Today is Ken Griffey Jrs 50th birthday. He shares a birthday and birthplace with the greatest hitter in the history of Baseball, Stan " The Man" Musial.

    How crazy to think a small town like Donora PA birthed 2 MLB HOFers and 2 of the best hitters of all time.

    I'm sure all the teams are doing it to some degree, but the Astros got caught. MLB will probably come down hard to set an example.

    As technology advances, policing this shit will become even more difficult.

    With players switching teams so often this will work itself out. Players will get free agent contracts just to tell on how their former team was doing it.

    Reds signed Mike Moustakas. 4 yr deal.
    He should be good for 30+ HRs with half his games being played at GABP.

    I like it. They needed a left handed bat with power. I'm assuming they intend to put him at 2nd.

    Plus he is use to being on suck teams so he wont complain about losing so much. Not sure why they paid him so much.

    30+ bombs from a middle infielder.

    Suarez was the only real HR threat on the team. This gives them one from each side of the plate. I like it. I could care less about the money - it isn't mine.

    The White Sox just signed outfielder Luis Robert, a dude with 0 major league experience, to a 6 year / $50 million contract. They added 2 years of club options onto the deal - so essentially they have control over him until 2027

    I actually like the move. If they are positive he's legit, why fuck around with service time and have him start the season in the minors?

    Robert's minor league slash last year (he's 22 years old):
    .328 / .376 / .624
    In 122 games he hit 32 HRs, 31 Doubles, 11 Triples and stole 36 bases.

    Looks legit. Hits for average, power and has plenty of speed. Definitely a guy to keep your eye on.

    With the addition of Dallas Keuchel, Yasmani Grandal and Edwin Encarnacion - the White Sox have some interesting things going on for 2020

    Its always a great move to sign a un proven player to a big contract.
