    Houston Astros on hot water over illegally stealing signs

    I love baseball, and I don't agree with all of the changes, and I don't agree that you are the voice of reason.

    And you are the arbiter of what is perfect? Why?

    Your statement about black ball players is ridiculous.

    Houston Astros on hot water over illegally stealing signs

    You haven't offered any proof, since you can't, that having a pitcher face three batters is somehow racist. Are you aware of how many rules changes there have been over the years? Should it take 8 or 9 balls for a walk? Should a ball that bounces over the fence be a home run? Should a ball...

    What about all of the other rules changes? Are they bastardizations, too?

    Houston Astros on hot water over illegally stealing signs

    Did I say or even insinuate that it had been used any specific number of times? No I didn't. Why would you even ask the question?

    Perhaps you aren't familiar with the DH rule. The DH can hit for anyone in the lineup, not just the pitcher.

    I think Manfred understands just fine.

    Not true. Some want to know, others don't. I'll bet that those that don't would change their mind if the info was right.

    Apparently they were using their own camera from center field. That's the problem.

    Are Japanese pitchers worth all the money

    Brien Taylor. He wasn't a bust, his shoulder was after he got into a fight in a bar. IIRC anyways.

    You would have hated working at the post office then. EVERYTHING is an acronym.

    Mariano Rivera first Hall of Famer to unanimously be chosen

    Jeter did most things very good, but no, not good enough to be unanimous. His range was a little better than average and he didn't hit for much power considering his size.

    He is on my list of should haves.

    Mariano Rivera first Hall of Famer to unanimously be chosen

    The mentality of the game has changed, but players are generally bigger and stronger, and the ball is livelier. Many of today's players are barely four tool players.

    Mariano Rivera first Hall of Famer to unanimously be chosen

    Nooooooooooo! I'm saying only five tool players, or certain pitchers, should be unanimous inductees. BTW, Rose played from 1963 to 1986. There were plenty of home runs hitters in that time. List of Major League Baseball annual home run leaders - Wikipedia
