2 more teams affected by the sign scandal.
Fortunately for the teams that sucked the past couple of years, there wasn't much to gain by cheating. The manager replacements have already happened.

I stole a sign once. I put it in my room when I was in university.

All these baseball peeps now out of work. Perhaps they can transition their skills to football and go to work for the Patriots.

I was with my roommate when he got caught stealing signs. I say he because he's the dumbass that insisted on carrying a huge sign that was sticking out of his backpack at the time of night where cops pay a lot of attention to people walking around instead of stashing it in the bushes to pick up by vehicle later. He also got felt up while getting frisked by an exceedingly ugly female cop. Stealing doesn't pay outside of the big leagues either.

Yah, read the rumor last Friday, kind of surprised, but kind of not. Great team guy, loved by all. Leader in the clubhouse.

Had a really nice year with Texas last year. Hit .297 mostly in a PH role. Had 18 bombs.

HUGE fan favorite. Near Timmy level adoration. Helps get butts in seats.

Did somebody say Dodgers?

Well, we shall see how Mr. Betts and Mr. Price fit in with the lads, in Dodger Stadium.

Should be a fun season.

They can't be for real. What happens when a reliever comes in and gives up back to back to back HRs to tie the game? Do they have to let him give up the game winner?

Doesn’t matter. He has to face three or end the inning.

In an effort to reduce the number of pitching changes and, in turn, cut down the average time per game, MLB instituted a rule change that requires pitchers to either face a minimum of three batters in an appearance or pitch to the end of a half-inning, with exceptions for injuries and illnesses.

MLB needs to do something to speed the game up. It's almost painful to watch, especially after watching the NBA and NHL. I like Carlin's bit about baseball; each batter gets one swing. You miss? FU, go back to the bench. Next!

I take it you don't actually like baseball...?
Not directed at you specifically, but I can't imagine why people that don't like baseball feel compelled to recommend changes to something they aren't interested in to begin with.

I agree, unless you can improve on balls and strikes calls, there is not much to do about baseball that doesn't change the current nature of the game.

I spent years of weekends at the ball fields since my son played club baseball. He was really into it, so I supported him 100%. Now, however, he's seen the light and is an NBA & NHL fan. Baseball is just too damn slow. If it were faster moving, I'd like it. By your logic, we shouldn't complain about Harleys and recommend that they add better suspension, more power, better braking, etc., right...?

If you don't like Harleys don't buy one. Don't demand they change their product.
If baseball can pay players 300 million for 13 years, it's not going away immediately without tweaking.

I like that baseball has its own pace. I can watch a half inning with no commercial breaks. When the 1/2 inning is over it’s over. 3 minutes or 15.

Three batter minimum to speed up the game. Eff that.

I think manfred os obsessed with trying to shorten them game because he thinks it will attract new fans. Meh. I don’t buy it.

want more fans? How about letting them watch your gawdamned product without the need of a $120 cable sub.

on another note. Wtf are the red sox doing trading away a home grown super star?? Wtf? Holy crap.

No, the manager comes out and twists his pitching arm so that he is 'injured' and can leave the game.

Having every other Sunday game on local broadcast over the air just 9 years ago or so was big on getting the less affluent fans to be casual watchers and even got them out to the stadium occasionally. When listening to the game on the radio, pitching changes doesn't matter much.

Wow I didn't know
1. Betts and Price are Dodgers now? - I don't know why the Red Sox would let a talent like Betts go. It could be that I was not kept in the loop by Boston management.

2. Three batter minimum for relief pitchers - This is a big deal and I like it. It has been getting crazy with all the pitching changes. This from a traditionalist who hated the new rules about contact at second base and home (yes I am a Ty Cobbist) and also hate the automated balls and strikes calls.
I realize this is a minority opinion

Agree.

Any icehole who tries to flock with baseball like that should be shot, drawn, quartered, and then deported.
