    OK, I will admit that this morning when I made the above comment, I did not realize the extent of the cheating. I read up on it today, and now I realize this was really bad.

    I wonder if Carlos Beltran will get fired. He was part of the 2017 Astros as a player and he played just as much a part in the cheating. However, it’s the managers and GM getting the heat.

    This is devastating for the MLB. Interest has long been on the decline. Lots of casual fans may likely tune out completely. And as much of a disdain as I’ve had for the Dodgers, if the Giants were in their position those years, I’d be pissed.

    The MLB and MLBPA are so far apart on a plan to resume. The future of baseball in the US was already wounded and if they can’t come together on a way to safely resume, it’ll severely impact the MLB for years to come.

    MLB is fucking this up so bad, it is really sad. They are in a difficult situation, since they rely on ticket sales for a higher % of revenue than the NFL and NBA. But shit man, there has to be some kind of compromise. As of now, I think the owners would be OK canceling the whole season, and paying the players nothing.

    Fuck! My 1st round pick just tested positive for Covid today! (Jaun Soto). I just drafted him last night? So this will be a huge story opening against the Yankees today at 4 on ESPN. Soto is one of baseball's youngest super stars. Very bad look for baseball.

    That was a wack suspension by the MLB on Joe Kelly. His 8-game suspension is equivalent to a 22-game suspension in a 162-game format. The Astros’ punishment for sign stealing still doesn’t feel enough. But I guess they wanted to send the rest of the league a message... “I know you’re pissed, but please don’t mess with the cheating Astros or else you’ll actually get punished!”
