Tenacious D

2020 Spring Training

Recommended Posts

OT but I just saw on Twitter that MLive is doing away with their comment section and discussion forums, I wonder if that means we're gonna get an influx of new posters from there. 

If they're still anything like they were when I was there 10 years ago godspeed to us all.

I love it.  I’m not sure why, but I’m enjoying the wrath that Manfred and the Astros are facing.  I don’t see it dying down for a long time.

The longer this one stays on the front burner the better. Markakis threw a little more fuel on the fire now as well.

I dunno, I'm kind of sick of it.

Let's not forget about the doctored up baseballs that Manfred won't fess up to.

I definitely want that fixed.  The game is way stupider now than it was when Manfred got there.

I'm sick of it too but I think it needs to run its course to the full.  The Astros cheated other players and their fans.

Not a doubt in my mind that the anger and disgust from other teams' players will eventually spill over onto the field ..and some pitchers are going to pay the price for inadvertently hitting an Astro player with a pitch.  Would not surprise me to see Astro hitters take offense to inside pitches at some point in the season and perhaps start a brawl over it.

Teams should have plenty of incentive to beat the Astros.  The Tigers have 7 games against the Astros this year ..3 at home and 4 in Houston.  Would love to see the Tigers win both series.

Seidel reported in the Freep that Cabrera was bombing the ball out of the park to all fields today

The Astros should be forced to take on the rest of Cabrera’s contract as punishment.

I think we will see a few Astro home games were the first pitch in the first inning might be used to get the umpires to warn both dugouts that there will be no more inside pitching for the day.

I have thought about first pitch of the season and/or first pitch of a series ..for any team facing the Astros.

Since Manfred has already issued a warning to all teams (thus, to all pitchers) ..do you think it is possible that an umpire might not issue a warning and instead immediately eject the pitcher who hits an Astro hitter?

What might be the odds that the Astros first batter this season gets thrown at with the very first pitch?

How about the second pitch?

The Astros first regular season game is March 26 against the Los Angeles Angels in Houston.  

With so many players speaking out against the Astro cheaters ..I wonder if at some point this season that one of those outspoken players might be intentionally thrown at by an Astro pitcher?

.............

Side Note:  In case anybody did not know ..the Tigers play the Astros in a Spring Training game in 5 days ..on Monday February 24.

With the All Star Game being at Dodger Stadium this year I wonder if any would be Astros All Stars opt to miss the game and festivities for "rest".
