    This pandemic was probably the best thing for Houston, as f***ed up as that sounds. All the attention and anger directed at them is being used towards more pressing matters.

    Bastards.

    It's interesting that the umpire can throw out pitchers

    So, what would happen if the new pitcher was also ejected, and then the next pitcher, and then the next. etc?

    What happens when the team runs out of pitchers?

    Hope you're right (more about baseball coming back this year).
    Have 1-2 utility players with cannons. Anyone in the pros probably pitched at some point.

    Him refusing to use the word "cheating" really made me want to shoryuken that smug face. "We broke the rules"

    f*** off.

    The organization's lack of remorse and unapolegetic approach to this scandal easily spreads to their whole fan base. That's why even the modest fans, like @punk_o_holic , still have the cocky attitude about this whole thing. You can only imagine how much worse @Duke33 is, wherever he is.

    so apparently hinch and luhnow would be able to return to baseball in 2021 even if there's no season in 2020

    great job manfred!

    Hopefully everyone continues the Asteriks thing even if the season gets cancelled. They should never be let off for what they did.



    Looking forward to Manfred letting Boston off easy knowing it'll fall out of the news cycle within hours due to the current environment.

    "Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci found a single statistic that tells the story of that game better than any commissioner's investigation. Clayton Kershaw is known for his devastating curveball, and an equally weaponized slider, and he threw 51 breaking pitches to the Astros that night and they swung and missed at exactly zero." With baseball in limbo, Clayton Kershaw's shot at redemption is on hold
