He might have to start the season on the... injured list?
I completely forgot the Red Sox and Yanks are playing two games in London this summer. That’s gonna cool as hell (hopefully)
My issue with “must face 3 batters” is that it fundamentally screws up the continuity of baseball statistics throughout history. I want to avoid that at all costs
on the same hand, i'd like to save the half hour-45 minutes that gets added on to a game when a manager goes through 6 pitchers in one inning just because someones a left or a righty or hits singles less against this guy or that guy
it gets monotonous after a while and frequently can be frustrating to sit through
I kind of like the three batter minimum idea. Encourages more forethought in game management.
Plus outside of super high-stakes games it can get tiresome sitting through two or three pitching changes in an inning.
^ ^ ^ yep
Darn, I was hoping for the DH in the NL
The three batter minimum is good in theory...but what happens if a pitcher gets injured? Furthermore, I think you’ll see a lot of teams fake injuries to get around that rule.
If that’s the case, they’ll need another rule that if a pitcher can only face one or two batters, the next hitter is an automatic intentional walk. Or the opposing team gets to pick the reliever. I don’t know.
I don’t know how you guarantee a pitcher can face three straight batters when many specialty relievers come in nightly just to face a lefty or a righty every now and then and then get pulled.
Yeah I can't wait for teams to fake injuries lol. I don't care for restrictions on who you can use when at all.
lmao no one tell him anything
still love him tho
Hahaha why do all th baseball ones fail lol
I had such a good one too lol
I need a figure out if I can solve that. It shows up if I quote it. Very weird. Making a note to look into it.
that one jason posted is way to HD for my taste
For real I'm so ready for some Judge he brings me such joy
I'm totally in favor of some sort of mandate to prevent managers from using more than 1 pitchers in an inning...I fuckkng hate that shit so much... and I love baseball. I want to change the bare minimum and even I think that stuff kills the game.
The dh in the nl on the other hand...ugh no wayyyy. I like that the leagues have different rules. It's one of those quirky things about base all that I actually like.
220m over 7 years would give him 31m per year. That's tied for 5th highest in the league. The only non-pitcher that'd be making more in Mike Trout.
I don't understand how that is considered a weak offer. Is it the length of the contract?
When the Corbin offer was reported, it turned out the Yankees never made a real offer at all so it can be confusing
Phillies may be the best team in the NL
