    It probably has to do with posters like me who have lost some perspective about respectful posting. I blasted a newbie with snark on an off topic comment and it was toxic enough that I haven't seen...

    I don't know this seems like a slippery slope argument at best. Do we all have to stop for stop signs, no but if no one follows the rule and everyone takes the penalty there is going to be a lot of...

    Good point that steroids are against the law and thus against the rules in baseball. However since baseball didn't test they still were allowed to play. The thing is there are tons of things not in...

    All 29 teams don't have the same ability to go over that is why the rule is there in the first place. If your premise were correct then there is no reason for the rule at all.

    I think it depends on what your definition of cheating is. Most would say cheating is gaining an unfair advantage. You can't create a rule to cover every scenario but typically as Human beings we...

    I agree. Only in baseball are Aces up your sleeve and loaded dice allowed. Most definitions of cheating would include some type of unfair advantage over the competition (i.e. more money to spend to...

    Yeah I guess Chris makes sense. He was hot early in the year and this is likely his make or break season for the Twins as the young guys are coming.

    I am a huge CC fan but am starting to fall...

    Glad the Twins are still going after solid pitching talent. I guess I had resigned myself to them not being able to pull this off. I am surprised they got this done considering the money other...

    Nice to see improvement in that area. I still think there is more they need to do pitching wise especially getting younger but I will take good pitching over bad any day. Farm club looks strong in...

    I am feeling pessimistic. I am thinking 5-9. They take two games against NY and 1 game each for the rest of the series. Hoping for 6-8 with them taking two against the M's as well. As always I...

    Yeah that could be a problem if he wants to go more than 2 years. It makes the risk greater as each year he ages the odds of him performing well decrease. Age is an uphill climb. If he continues...

    I agree with you that he won't have as good a year next year or the year after or at least it is very unlikely. I am going against statistics which in the end will likely make me look silly but it...

    A shortage of catchers has nothing to do with a possible deadline trade. The team that wants him only gets him for two or three months tops and they might not be able to resign him as FA. The deal...

    I like that plan and my only quibble would be that I value Suzuki more than I did when the Twins first got him. Maybe he will tank shortly and I will change my mind again but right now he is a...

    I think the question many of us have is what value does Suzuki have on the trade market? Teams have been reluctant to give up much more than relievers or C level prospects for players to make a run....

    Age really shouldn't matter. Is he dominating? The answer appears to be yes. Should he move on to the next challenge? why not? He is going to pitch the same number of pitches whether he is in...

    He definitively takes on the risk of getting hurt or having his performance drop off if he waits things out but he has been durable over his career so he might take on that risk. Who knows what he...

    I agree. I think you would have to overpay him to give up Free Agency. With catchers looking scarce for next year that only increases his value. If I were the motorcycle I would wait for the...

    I was a little surprised that they let him go 6 innings this early. Isn't this just his second game? I think the Twins had most of there pitchers drop the velocity a notch to start the season or at...

    While it is not the end of the world leaving him at high A I think he is better moving to AA soon. Berrios is a fly ball pitcher and somewhat protected in the Florida state league. Better to get...

    If it is deemed an intentional foul it is. I believe you can be kicked off the court after two technical fouls. Also FYI Basketball has a cap.

    The value of a cap is self evident. It creates a level playing field for all teams to operate. It is why all sports gravitate towards a cap. In baseball you have a handful of teams that have three...

    I agree they aren't scheming to keep the other teams down but in the end that is the likely consequence. We know for a fact that many lower revenue clubs do not have the financial resources that...
