    Yes. He was 6th in the ROY voting that year. It was the worst year of his career. His OPS+ was 103 that season. His career mark was 182.

    I do not disagree with you. Both deserve to be enshrined, as both had tremendous careers. They were arguably the best hitter and pitcher in baseball for over a decade. Their plaques should show their choices, however and their enshrinement might have to be posthumous or at least via the veteran's committee. The writers won't likely vote them in.

    Kyle Seager announced his retirement.

    I'm kind of surprised, he was a guy who even in his last year when he hit .212 still had an OPS+ of 100, was a remarkably healthy player throughout his career, only having one season where he missed significant time.

    I thought that he might want to play with his brother, or go to a contender and have a chance at the postseason.

    Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association plan to meet Monday, when the union is expected to present a counteroffer to the league’s proposal last week, sources tell ESPN.

    This would be the second meeting between the sides since MLB locked out players on Dec. 2.

    - Passan


    Also reporting this will take place in person, in Manhattan. MLBs last offer was done via teleconference.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    I love these videos. Also really enjoyed the colorized one of Gehrig and Ruth taking BP.

    LA won't prosecute Trevor Bauer.


    There was a lot of pontification in the dodgers blog-o-sphere by hacks & journovists regarding how Bauer was going to go jail, and even if he didn't the dodger would get his contract voided, and even if that didn't happen he would get some super long suspension, and he would be blackballed from baseball.
    It's becoming more and more clear that all that bad *reporting* on Bauer was just wishcasting from a place of internal bias.

    What a shock that the same guy that has no problem defending a murderous child rapist also feels the need to defend a scumbag like Trevor Bauer.

    Lol. Just because he wasn’t charged doesn’t mean he’s innocent.

    Just because the DA won't do anything doesn't mean that MLB won't. They can discipline players without a conviction in court. For evidence, I give you Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez. Neither was convicted of a charge in a court, but both were suspended for PED use.
