MLB 2020 = Catcher Interference = SAFE!

 

btw:  Bill Freehan was a great catcher.

Borderline Hall of Famer who has a substantially higher WAR (and WAA) than Yadier Molina, who is already considered a lock for the Hall, perhaps even first ballot.

Boston has opened the door, all Avila has to do is walk through.

Avila is just a scout. He doesn't know how to walk through doors.

giving up young assets to move this team from 62 to 65 wins would be pure Avila stupidity

The heck with trading for him, buy him. LA will need to bank cash to pay for Betts and their luxury taxes. :wink:

They do in the minors, although I don't it would take much to get Pederson.  It would better if they signed Puig though.

If they don't figure out some way to get good talent on the major league team, other than throwing too much money at random veterans, they don't stand a chance to win even 62 games, never mind 65 games. What they've been doing ain't working.

The position players overall are an historic collection of bad. But the pitching staff, even without the young studs, is marginal. If they add Joc or Puig I'd say 65 wins could happen if things go well.

The reported possible new playoff format is not as terrible as everyone says it is.

Rather than one bye and six teams in the wild card round, I would go with two byes and four teams in the wild card round.  But you could also have teams 6+7 do a one game play-in.

From 5 to 7 teams

Wild Card game would go away

First round would be best 2 of three games

Top seed in each league gets a bye

Teams with best records would pick their opponents.

I don't care how they arrange it.  I will never like having 14 teams in the playoffs.

It’s ridiculous! They’re going the way of hockey, football, and basketball. They’re diluting the integrity of the playoffs. Lowering the bar for the sake of making lesser teams playoff eligible.

From MLB website:

“Are big changes coming for the playoffs? It could happen, including 4 more teams and a live TV show during which 2 clubs from each league would select their 1st-round opponents.”

 

This is so lame.

Oh, can’t you see it now?  All first round road teams board airplanes at the same time with no idea where they are going and with no communication devices (except for the pilots).  Matchups are picked as all six planes take off simultaneously and those teams won’t know where they are going until they get there.

That would be the complete Foxification of MLB....
