    sorney got a reaction from DocBauer in Offseason Status Update: Is That It?   
    I'm ready for some baseball.   I think the roster is "fine" for now.  Obviously adding more pitching would have been awesome, but they are where they are at.  Let's see how it goes the first couple months.

    I'd highly encourage to expand beyond the scope of just "D1".....there is awesome and talented baseball players to watch everywhere.

    I mean, I get your point, but dude is only 44....could be just to keep mind busy and having something to do.  Being retired that early in life, you have to do something to stay busy

    I'm afraid we'll cheer Bundy's first appearance and then his career will over. So Andover is a good nom de plume for the guy. Which coincidentally is French for "Who was that guy?".
    Andover, by the way, was named for the first guy to win the state Annie, Annie Over contest; Andy Ober. He wasn't much to look at but he had a lot of balls.

    I demand we name Bundy after Andover.  It fits.  No one is quite sure where Andover is, and no one is quite sure what kind of pitcher Bundy is.  It is a match made in heaven.

    Pampered crybabies....you mean the owners, right?  The ones who had $10B in revenue....The ones who get tax payer funded/tax breaks/assistance for stadiums to that continue to build their investment.  Like the Pohlads, who bought the Twins for $40M, and are valued at $1.3B.   Yeah, the players definitely are the crybabies.

    With the DH now open, they can even rest him in the field on cold days (that's why they got Caveman, right?  ARG!!!).    I have never been more on a side of a player than Buxton...especially if the $70M extension plus incentives, was true.    If  a team isn't going to pay for elite home grown talent, board em up.

    Between steroids, greenies, spit balls, scuffing the ball, corked bats, etc....they are all forms of "cheating".  There are a plenty of players in the Hall for all of those but steroids.  I think the steroids crew absolutely deserves to be in the Hall....unless we are going to kick out all the HOF'ers who did other forms of "cheating"

    FWIW, Barry Bonds was never found guilty of taking steroids and his conviction for obstruction of justice was overturned 10-1 by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. 
    Bonds was easily the best hitter in baseball, pre-steroids era. If any members who were ever whispered to have used steroids get into the HoF, Bonds needs to go in first. There cannot be exemptions or ... "But, he was a good guy" stuff.
    I'm not invested either way - let them all in or keep everyone out - I don't care. The hypocrisy is tough though. We don't like Barry, Alex is ok, Ortiz was a fabulous post season player- great personality, Manny was a jerk, etc. These judgments are just personal nonsense and hyperbole. All or none is simple.
