Re: The Cardinals

From GRB: I think the Cubs have the rotation edge, we have the edge in lineup , and the pens are pushes going into the year. Ahead of adding Ozuna I would have said the lineups were pushes as well. I like that back of the napkin math at the end of the day. I guess I'm more looking at the additions ...

If/when the Giants get him I really don't get it, they are more than a Stanton away and if they really are cool with committing to $300 million this offseason idk why they wouldn't just go sign like 1 of Fraizer/Moustakas/Walker for 3B, 2 or 3 of Cain, Gomez, Cargo, Bautista, Jay, Kendrick for the ...

Re: Offseason Transactions

True story. Last off-season I was driving through St. Louis and happened to land on a sports talk station.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I love the realignment idea. It’s almost exactly what my brother and I have been wanting for a long time. The main thing I would want in a 32-team league is 8-team divisions. With 4-team divisions you’re just asking for somebody to win 100 games and get stuck in a play-in game while somebody else g...

Re: The Cardinals

I too take support calls from customers. I am convinced 50% of Americans can't find their state on a map and 75% have no general idea of where the time zone boundaries are.

However, foreigners often seem to know US states and time zones pretty well. It's baffling to me.

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

Guess I'll be a meathead traditionalist on this issue. I don't like the idea. The Cubs' record shows lots of ties back in the 40s through 60s, as do the records of most other teams. Obviously some were due to lack of lights, but lots of others were just called as ties after 10 innings or whatever. ...
