    To summarize, the Red Sox suck, the Astros are cheaters, fuck the Dodgers, the New York Yankees will be World Series champions!

    Great thread, would read again.

    Still time for all you losers to jump on the Cardinal Nation bandwagon.

    I agree with everything you said

    The Cards still have a team? I thought the CIA had them killed them for hacking into the Cheatros' scouting database.

    It was a rogue employee, not the Cardinals organization. Besides is it really bad if they arent even smart enough to change a password?

    No one in Missouri cares about baseball any more after the Super Bowl

    What does Missouri have to do with the Super Bowl? Trump said the Chiefs are from Kansas.

    Do you think the Red Sox will get banned this season or next season after they are found guilty of having cheated throughout 2018?

    Whenever they decide to consider the Yankees for cheating is when the Red Sox will be considered

    The Red Sux are under investigation right now, but you wouldn't know that because you don't watch baseball.

    It's not like the locals have the option of going to the beach instead.

    Guarantee at least half the stadium at the first Cardinals home game will have Mahomes hairdos

    Former Blue Jays pitcher, Mike Bolsinger, is suing the Houston Astros claiming they ruined his career. He was a bit of a journeyman that bounced around the league for a few years, but ended up pitching against the Astros in Houston in 2017. He was lit up for four runs in 1/3 of an inning on August 4th. On August 5th he was designated for assignment and never played in the big leagues again.

    It is a bit unclear what he is asking for in return for that. What is clear is that part of the lawsuit includes having the Astros essentially forfeit the bonuses they were paid for the 2017 playoffs which is over $30MM. He is asking for that money to be donated to charities in the greater LA area given the Dodgers ultimately lost the World Series to the Cheatros that year.

    Ex-pitcher sues Astros, says sign stealing a 'death knell' for his MLB career

    New rules for the 2020 season:
    • Roster size moved from 25 to 26
    • Players can be designated as "two way players". They can both pitch and play a position. I call it the Ohtani rule.
    • Position players are no longer allowed to pitch in a game unless the game has a 6 run differential or has gone to extra innings.
    • 10 day DL moved back to a 15 day DL
    • Challenges must be initiated in 20 seconds instead of 30. This means nothing because even the 30 second rule was never enforced.
    • Pitchers must face at minimum 3 batters or pitch to the end of a half inning.

    Couldn't teams just use the previously mentioned rule as declare everyone to be an Ohtani and do as they please?

    Does this mean if a pitcher comes into the game when it's 3-0 his team is up, if he gives up 2 hits, he can't be taken out the game until he pitches to the 3rd batter?

    I think there has to be precedent.

    @Willthiswork@Willthiswork Thanks for quoting. My internet briefly went out as I was trying to post on his quote, but it only posted his quote.

    I updated it.
