    I've never played OOTP, but I have played in some Diamond Mind run leagues. Lots of fun for sure.

    I remember him... but only vaguely. It's awesome that he went to med-school! Congrats! His efforts make him one of my favorite all time Cardinals with fewer than 75 AB's!

    why are people pointlessly negative towards someone gravely ill?

    Photographic posts are the norm now. People take pictures and post them. It is what they do.

    Yairo signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox. Glad he found a gig, but man he needs to work on his people skills.

    There's absolutely nothing to talk about right now.

    Watching sports television is just sad. It's either re-runs or covid discussion. There's no sports being played anywhere.

    All baseball operations have been suspended. Seems like they could have proceeded with spring training, and said no fans allowed.

    Could Carlos be pitching himself back into the closers role? I saw he gave up 6 runs yesterday.

    Molina won't get pulled for bad play... especially since Knizner has been pretty poor so far this spring. Worst case is he's so bad, they decide to start Weiters 2 times a week.

    My opinion on value of pitching staff.

    1-5 starters
    Closer
    Setup up man (8th inning)
    Lefty
    Long man (pitches in the 6th and 7th innings only)
    Everyone else

    So, if you have one of your top...

    The problem is... typically the "long man" comes in if a pitcher blows up. So, they're coming in trailing 6-0. That isn't a valuable use of one of our better pitchers.

    Ponce is looking really good… If he doesn’t get a spot in the rotation, he should be heavily used in the bullpen.
