  1. At this point I'm probably going to have get games from whomever is broadcasting them through MLB, as of now with Sinclair making it impossible to get the games through streaming services
  2. This is awesome for a farm fan like myself, I usually would get to games in GCL, FSL and Jax so I can now make a long drive to Pensacola too!!! Now if they'll just let us in to go to games
  3. I can't recall a manager in the Hall of Fame coming out of retirement to manage again. Obviously he has credentials for the job, maybe he'll hire McKeon for the staff
  4. Tommy Phelps is one of the nicest guys I've ever met , glad to have him back in the organization!
  5. This one hurts for sure, I'm one of those old folks that remember Joe as a player, a back to back MVP and the catalyst for the Big Red Machine as much as Rose or Bench, he was a joy to watch with his little arm flap at the plate and blazing speed on the base paths. It's startling to see so many great players dying as such an alarming rate recently especially these guys I watched as a kid.
  6. I'm more surprised he didn't call it a strike
  7. I've been to minor league games where it was done and now have seen it in the majors and I get the reasoning behind it to save arms, but I hate it. I also feel bad for the pitcher that comes in and gets a loss in that situation
  8. I had Brighthouse for phone/cable/internet, after company changes so I'm still left with the shitty Spectrum for internet but got Hulu live with it I get Fox Sports Florida and Fox Sports Sun so I get Marlins, Rays, Lightning and Magic, every now and then a Heat game, pretty sure this is because I live in central FL, but also includes multiple ESPN feeds FS1 and NBC sports along with the major networks so there are few sporting events I miss, my bill went down drastically
  9. He has to go through waivers first before he returns to the Nats, so any team is eligible to make a claim they're also on the hook for the waiver and Rule 5 fee, if unclaimed he can then return to Washington or every now and then the teams work out trades as the original team has moved on
  10. All these rules unwritten or implied are from a different era of baseball where players pretty much stayed on teams for the majority of their careers and pitchers had to hit -eventually you'd get a shot to get your revenge or to face the consequences of any transgressions you committed. Baseball is a far different game these days and no matter what the score the winning team still needs to get 27 outs, not like you can take a knee or run out the clock. Despite the different era I'd still say if you do violate the rules you should expect to get drilled
  11. I know Guzman pitched in relief, but he's been a starter for his time in the organization
  12. Looks like they're set at pitcher, shortstop and outfield, best looking list for the team since probably 2012?!?
