    Nick, you are preaching the the choir!

    Nick. I realize my view is in the minority. I also realize it is out of step with current views and perspectives on the survival of the game. I don't expect to change your mind or anyone's, I can...

    Nick we agree on the shift. No one enjoys the human rain delay. I get it. The two throws over seems contrived. In fact most of the rule changes feel contrived imo. A batter should be able to get set...

    It's a minor league deal and an opt out if hes not promoted to the Majors by May 1, per Rosenthal.

    Yep. Before a single ticket is sold or a piece of merch or a beer, soda or hot dog! But yet some cry poverty!

    True, but then the $100M+ EACH MLB team gets from the TV contract might be compromised!

    Starting in 2022 every MLB team will receive a guaranteed $60.1 million via national TV deals (averaging...

    While I agree with the clock speeding up the game, I am not happy with them altering long established basic tenets of the game. What separated BB from most sports was there was NO clock. The game was...

    It's not paid by the MLB, it's paid by teams based on a revenue formula. The Yankees have been a contributor (disproportionate imo) from the outset. In 2019, the Marlins received about $70 million,...

    .....and that is the fear of the MiLB, some teams will cry poverty and cut back on minor leagues teams / spending.

    What confounds the "weirdity", Volpes first ML start and his DP partner is DJ? How much time has he spent playing along side him? I would imagine most of his reps were with Torres. :confused:

    Is Torres nursing a minor injury? DJ is more than capable 2B. Just weird timing.

    I believe it can go in either direction. Starting the season with pitching injuries is not an ideal start. Do the kids provide a spark or experience growing pains and thus a very long season.

    I'm...

    My apology. I read it wrong, I must have missed " When he starts to break down in the OF? You can move him to 1B."
    Again my apology. I reacted, in part because , while I appreciate versatility, I...

    Well..... :confused: He has a -0.6 career WAR and a career slash: .221/.290/.386/.670. Maybe AAA fodder?

    You are right. I reread it. My bad, I overlooked the "predicted lineups for tomorrow" in clown's original post. I thought he/we were discussing "lineups" in more general terms for the season....

    I know, I heard. I'm just suggesting it as a plausible spot at some point in time. I think he would make a perfect lead off hitter, good contact and speed. DJ is also exceptional bat at the top....

    Maybe because they have a 6'3" defensive player of the year and platinum glove winner already playing the position? Just a thought. Simply being a BIG target doesn't make a good 1B.

    I do agree...

    Makes perfect sense.

    How about :

    Anthony Volpe, SS
    Aaron Judge, RF
    Anthony Rizzo, 1B
    Giancarlo Stanton, DH
    Gleyber Torres, 2B
    Josh Donaldson, 3B
