    Default MLB 2018 Thread

    A few observations about all the hot stove action:

    1.) What the Marlins are doing to their fans is criminal. I don't know why you'd pay to support them.

    2.) Also feel bad for Coach and O's fans as they look to unload Machado. It makes me wonder if we're gonna go down a similar path with Nolan.

    3.) Pretty classy move by the Cardinals organization to trade Piscotty to Oakland to be closer to home where his mom was just diagnosed with ALS.

    I think it's really interesting. I hope he becomes great, it'll be fun to watch.

    The way they are hyping him he seems like a can't miss prospect... But the sprained ligament stuff would be pretty worrying if you've just invested that much in him.

    Do they plan to let him hit? I know they were talking about him playing both ways but haven't seen anything about the Angels specifically.

    I've only read the headline, what's the verdict on the elbow?

    I think he could be pretty good. He's one of the youngest Japanese players to come over. I think he's only 23, might turn 24 in season. I hope the Angels let him do both, as well, but I'm skeptical. He's been a baseball nerd darling for a couple of years and his legend is probably bigger than his actual play.

    His ability to hit and pitch well is what enticed teams to sign him, I hope they would let him hit but I can definitely see why they would limit him to just pitching. The ligament damage is a problem for sure, could that void the signing?

    I fully understand the sentiment. And if, for some unknown reason, I rooted for the Marlins, I would be pissed. But, they had the third-worst attendance last year. They weren't supporting the team with Stanton on it.

    Feel much worse for this fan base.

    That's interesting. Don't they own the building they play in too?

    yes, and the network the games are televised on. The Ontario Teachers Union is interested in purchasing them, sounds weird but that Union owns a shit load of stuff in Canada including half of the trucking companies. They have a lot of money behind them.
