        Coors Field was made for the all-star game. It would be great if they could get a really great HR Derby field like Harper, Trout, Tatis, Bellinger, Yelich, Story, Stanton and Alonso.

            “Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views,” Manfred said in a statement announcing the decision.

            "Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box. In 2020, MLB became the first professional sports league to join the non-partisan Civic Alliance to help build a future in which everyone participates in shaping the United States. We proudly used our platform to encourage baseball fans and communities throughout our country to perform their civic duty and actively participate in the voting process. Fair access to voting continues to have our game’s unwavering support."

            Good move on the part of MLB. Too bad they they didn't wait until April 15th to make the announcement.

              Fernando Tatis, Jr. out with a partially-torn labrum. Big yikes.

                Trying not to cross the line, but Colorado is also one of the states with general election laws already on the books similar to the new Georgia bill.

                In other words, not great vetting going to probably the first non-Texas/Florida city that said they’d take the game with 4 months notice.

                  NBA had a huge slide in ratings and NFL had a significant decline. Both were in much better shape than MLB which has had ratings decline for many reasons, mostly being aesthetic, i.e., slow and boring play, etc. My bet is MLB will take a big hit in TV ratings, more on national than local markets. Rob Manfred is an idiot on so many levels.

                    You mean pulling guys with no hitters to conform to a mathematical ideology isn’t exciting? Did they try giving the fans calculators to show them how much more exciting analytics is? Has to be more exciting than watching a player throw the best game of his life, perform under pressure, dig deep into his ability and throw that last big fastball. Right? Isn’t that why people watch sports? The theoretical mathematics? That’s why people watch sports right?

                        The Braves will shut down right-hander Mike Soroka for two weeks after he felt shoulder discomfort at their alternate site Tuesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com was among those to report. Soroka has also been recovering from a torn right Achilles tendon and hasn’t pitched in the majors this year as a result.

                          Tommy John surgery has been recommended for Mariners left-hander James Paxton, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. If Paxton undergoes the procedure, he’ll miss the rest of this season and at least some portion of the 2022 campaign.

                            inb4 the Yankees pick up a journeyman/end-of-the-line vet (Anibal Sanchez? Felix?) who suddenly catches fire and just like 2019 the replacements punch well above their weight in keeping the machine going.

                              But we still witnessed a bit of history... and, for better or worse, it ended up working out for the Twins. I'm sure, in the end, Twins fans will take it.
                              Agree in total. Hard to believe "some" came to defend Cash. Just because you made practice of some kind with Snell in regular season....................you don't take him out in post season when the other team can't touch him. I was baffled, can't believe what I saw. You have no idea what the reliever will have on that day.
                              To those who defend Cash, we can end it right here, did the move pay off..........................

                                Speaking of history being made, last night Joe Muskgrove threw the first No-Hitter in Padres history!

                                Home town boy finally playing for the team he grew up rooting for, accomplishes something no other Padre has done, in his second start for the team!

                                Such a feel good story, and what a weight off for Padres fans, now that we're no longer the only ML team never to have thrown a no-hitter!
                                The only way to pitch to Tony (Gwynn) is throw the ball down the middle and hope he hits it at someone." - Al Leiter
