Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I'm fascinated to see how the sportswriters parse voting for Ortiz and not for A-Rod since they both tested positive for PED's. Wasn't Ortiz only listed on the 2003 "anonymous" test that has been picked apart and legitimacy questioned? ARod was suspended twice and admitted to taking PEDs ...

He looks awkward on the court being so thick and relatively short. Just doesn't "look" like a superstar, whatever that means. And then he does something super explosive and/or awesome.

He did play an entire inning there in 2016 so it’s totally legit. He played an inning at SS too so maybe I move him there instead of Castro.

Ok fine, move him to left field, put McRae in CF and Schwarber to the bench

Somewhat interesting.... https://twitter.com/MarkLazerus/status/1219659160578678793 Also interesting is that the Hawks have won 5 in a row and are 3 points out of a Wild Card spot (with a game in hand) and 4 points out of a division top 3 spot.
