  1. Double the amount of padding on the outfield wall. Make it virtually impossible to get injured by running into the wall.
  2. Is it possible that this was partly a psychological phenomenon? Maybe Puck was inspired by the home field fan energy, and would have excelled in home games regardless of the ballpark configuration?
  3. I think that both debaters did an excellent job. I am not voting on a winner, because in my mind this was a tie.
  4. I will play. Buy out 2022 for $15 million, then $20 million per year for 2 years, then team option for 2025 at $30 million, plus large incentive payments for years in which he plays more than 100 games. I don't know what incentives are allowed, but I would want a contract where he gets a lot more if he plays in enough games.
  5. Eddie has already scored a run tonight. Go Eddie!
  6. And he made an amazing catch in the last game -- https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/braves-eddie-rosario-makes-best-catch-of-2021-world-series-to-rob-astros-jose-altuve-of-extra-bases/
  7. If the Braves win then Eddie should easily be the series MVP.
  8. Just saw Eddie hit a 3 run blast that puts the Braves up 4 to 1. Amazing clutch hit when behind in the count.
  9. I am happy for Eddie. A great clutch hitter and role model.
  10. It's odd that we are just now hearing this. And we have no details as to what the Yankees supposedly offered.
  11. It might be good to lose and get a better draft pick next year.
  12. I am disappointed about the Kernels loss, but pleased with their season.
  13. I don't disagree with you, but think that people like this because it feels good to perceive potential greatness in a prospect who is on a hot streak. There is reason to hope that Ryan could become a #1 or #2 pitcher. I have hope for this kid and that hope makes me happy. This has been a depressing season and Ryan is helping some of us feel less disgusted. You are clearly correct from a factual perspective, but please consider that the hype may be giving him some extra confidence and he may even match the hype over time. It might also help to turn off the sound on your TV -- kind of like being at the game in person because there are no announcers. Then you don't have to listen to any hype, and if you see Ryan have a bad night then you can (if you wish) turn the sound on to hear the announcers make excuses and/or eat crow, I have watched entire games without the sound, because the announcers can be annoying,

    I agree that is sad and am going to actively celebrate the Lynx.

    Is the lightweight boxing champion less an athlete than the heavyweight champion?
