Prop, I was just talking about Trout with my son. We both agreed it’s a shame we can’t watch him more. If he were in Boston, Chicago, LA, or New York he would be insanely popular. Wasn’t aware the commish called him boring. I completely disagree. He is amazing.
How is baseball screwing up so badly when it comes to Mike Trout? Commish calling him Boring as to why he isn't bigger nationally. Trout is without question one of the greatest ballplayers maybe only behind Bonds I have seen in my 44 years (32 years of actually paying attention)
Game that is dying with fans under 30 you would think they would do more to show case a player like him. I know he has to want it too but he's going to get paid no matter what.
always seemed like a class act, stock just went up
Yea Montreal has been itching for another team for a long time. I'm good with that. Still would like the schedule shortened back to 154 games like the old days. As far as a DH for the national league i'm against it and here's why. IMO it would take away allot of the strategy that managers from both teams deploy during a game. Sac bunts, hit behind the runner, etc. etc. It's been part of this game forever and to a purist it's the only way to play the game. If a player gets plunked by a opposing pitcher by accident or on purpose which we know never happens then with a DH in the line-up the pitcher that did hit the others teams batter has nothing to worry about being hit or at least brush backed off the plate. Just my two cents worth though. What's gouing to happen will happen just hope it appeals to at least me and my thinking. LOL!!! Oh yea I don't like that 1 game wild card game either. A team that has the better record for the year can get beat that 1 game and be done after working so hard during the season to get there.
I like that Prop. And as long as we are blowing things up, the one game wildcard has to go! The entire baseball season, for the most part, is built on 3 game series on consecutive days. The wildcard round should be a three game series at the location of the team with the better record. 1 game wildcard in a sport were winning 55% of your games is usually enough to get you to the playoffs is just stupid.
I would like to see them blow up the two leagues the way they are now. With the interleague play the way it is now it really wouldn't be that big of a change. Midwest division could consist of Twins, Royals, Cards, Sox, Cubs and Brewers. Of course go DH for everyone. No one wants to see a pitcher hit.
