I figured :haha:

Whatever the case, the guy should be in the Hall of Fame. That's the biggest thing here that I don't understand, and the same goes for Bonds.

You realize the Dowd report I'm referencing was the result of the original investigation in 1989, correct? My point (and it's backed up by what Dowd said in that article) is that when they first...

It's simpler than that. Kipnis' triple slash is .354/.431/.521.

Given the recent news that Pete Rose bet on baseball games he played in, what's everyone's thoughts on whether he should be a HOFer now?

Tabata is literally in the wrong in this situation if you believe he leaned into it, which I do. It's against the rules. I'm not disagreeing with taking the hit by pitch if you can get away with...

Buck isn't good, but he's not on the same level of Kay, The Hawk, and Sterling in my opinion.

Scherzer just lost the perfect game. No hitter still intact though, top 9, 2 outs.

Not a fan of Jerry Remy, though this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufSQMXLO95w) is hilarious. I tend to have unnecessarily strong opinions about broadcasters, and he's near the bottom of my list.
