2019 REGULAR SEASON DISCUSSION THREAD

The MLB season will open a cold, cruel mess. March 20-whatever? That is ludicrous. I hate this new Commissioner and everything he has done. A hole.

It's so Baseball can avoid the horror of playing baseball on November 1, which in most northern cities averages about five degrees warmer than March 26.

Tigers vs Yankees, 2019:  .167/.252/.274.  Its OK, though, small sample size.  Only 107 PAs.  

Tigers vs Orioles in 109 PAs is at .216/.259/.392.

So ... better against the Orioles.

No.  Less horrible against the Orioles.

this is a good point, but TPTB don't care if the games are snowed out the 1st week of the season, whereas as snowed out WS game might actually make more people wonder why the league can’t schedule itself  more rationally.

Plus WS games are at night where it is much colder.

This amuses me because we are less than 2 years removed from this:

I agree, the optics of having weather issues in November are a factor of multiples worse than in March, although I would have thought that this spring, bad as it was, might have given them second thoughts about March starts. Obviously not.

One other non-weather related factor: by moving the season a week up, that's one less football week that regular season baseball will have compete with.

It's still warmer than a night game in March or early April.

If nothing else, we can always debate weather and the start of the season.

If the bimbo tag fits . . . .

Don't forget that she's the one who made all of the fossil fuel that so many people are worked up about.

That's a great point.  They may have been but it hasn't been announced yet.

Crazy stat - so far in 2019 the Yankees Sanchez (10) and Torres (13) have combined to hit 23 HRs vs Baltimore.

How can a team with the lowest team batting average in the MLB 116 games into a dismal season NOT fire their hitting coach?   

Asking for a friend.

I don't know what the rule was but this isn't a good look for Avila's people if they didn't know the rules....

Apparently it's not difficult.  Even Astute Al and Ron Illadvisedhire can pull it off.

No coach can polish a t*rd. If you have a team of cast offs and aaaa players how can you expect a coach to turn them into better players? Not saying Lloyd is good at his job. Just saying you can't judge him for the results of this garbage roster.

Wasn't it Al Avila who was telling everyone that Jeimer Candelaria and Dawel Lugo were stars in the waiting?
