Methinks baseball is going to have an off-season of a lot of cost cutting and free agents dangling in the wind

So, kind of like the last two offseasons?

How was this missed?  ;D

Everyone is so serious.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Clearly the surprise of the night was Cardinal outfielder Tyler O'Neill winning a Gold Glove. Pre-season not even the most die hard kf Cardinal fans would have predicted that. Kolten Wong won again at second base which was expected, but not O'Neill. Interestingly enough, among the Hot Stove chatter...is the possibility of the Cards getting Joc Pederson and platooning him with O'Neill in a corner OF spot.

Evidently charged the day BEFORE he was hired. And the Whites Sox knew. Awful just got more awful.

Repeat offender.

White Sox knew it when they hired him, though, so it's all good!

There was really no defense to the hire other than Tony and Jerry are best friends. Every comment, column, tweet ripping the Sox is well deserved.

I doubt this is the second time Tony has been impaired while driving, it's only the second time he's been caught.

TLR is such a dick.

Before searching his person and placing him in the rear of my patrol vehicle La Russa asked, “Do you see my ring?” I asked La Russa what he was talking about? La Russa stated, “I’m a hall of famer baseball person.” While placing him in the rear of my patrol vehicle, La Russa stated, “I’m legit. I’m a hall of famer brother. Your [sic] trying to embarrass me.” I advised La Russa that I will to embarrass him, and he would be treated with the utmost respect.”

What a dirtbag.

And where’s Rob Manfred? This dirtbag tried to use his association with MLB to get out of committing a crime.

La Russa should be suspended and fined by MLB.

Add in “I’m a hall of famer brother” in a Hull Hogan voice and it’s perfection

Kim NG is the new GM of the Miami Marlins, well earned, long overdue. She is also the first female General Manager in MLB:

LOL, couldn't they find better pictures of her than those?  They looked like they were scanned from a newspaper in 1978.

Here's the NYTimes' take for those with a subscription:

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/13/sports/baseball/kim-ng-miami-marlins.html?campaign_id=60&emc=edit_na_20201113&instance_id=0&nl=breaking-news&ref=headline&regi_id=108420427&segment_id=44457&user_id=d36dcf821462fdd16ec3636710a855fa

Long viewed as the person who would break baseball’s glass ceiling, Kim Ng was named general manager of the Miami Marlins on Friday, thus becoming the first woman in baseball history to lead a front office.

Ng, 51, was most recently M.L.B.’s senior vice president of baseball operations. In more than 30 years in baseball, she had been an assistant general manager for both the Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers, and earned praise at every stop.

“I entered Major League Baseball as an intern and, after decades of determination, it is the honor of my career to lead the Miami Marlins as their next general manager,” Ng said in a statement that accompanied the team’s announcement.

‘They Just Get It’: How Women in M.L.B. Found Support in a Group Text
In 2019, Jen Wolf felt a lack of support for women like her trying to find work in professional baseball. The group chat she started has become a rare place for mentoring and understanding.

In addition to being the first woman to lead an M.L.B. front office, the statement from the Marlins said Ng is believed to be the first woman to hold the title of general manager for any of the major men's professional sports leagues in North America.
I will be rooting for her.


Very happy for Ng. I will be rooting for her.
