    Mookie will be a superstar in LA.
    He was brought in to ease the pain of Kobe dying for the city.
    Mookie is a country bumpkin at heart so it just takes him a little bit to let loose around new large groups of city folk.

    I agree with you 100 about Price.
    Boston is like Philly in that they are good at picking people to hate and then picking at them until they get put in their place.

    A 30+ year WS title drought may or may not help in that effort

    The outfield wall dimensions will not be impacted by the renovations, according to Vin's voice over on the original announcement.

    Also, here's an update:


    I love to talk shit on ownership, but they've done a pretty good job of improving the fan experience without compromising the original 60's aesthetic (pastel colors, hexagons, wavy roofs, palm trees, etc). The area under the pavilion will be a bar/restaurant with a window looking into the bullpen.

    wouldn't the astros playing in DS next year be great?
    i would spend extra bones just to get close to that dugout
    and 100% i'm getting thrown out
    never happen though since the big pussies of MLB will protect them

    honestly they should just make the seats all blue. Royals do it and it is much more pleasing to the eye than the yellow and orange seats.

    From Dodger Talk interviews with Mookie and Price (paraphrasing):
    • David Price says Mookie will give Kershaw tough competition in ping pong
    • Mookie much more humble, and says he is ok at ping pong
    • Both love Alex Cora. Price says he is unfairly connected to the cheating scandal.

    MLB Radio was all over the Asterisks today. I believe it was Jim Duquette that said that this thing is becoming much worse behind the scenes than people realize. Apparently there are owners that are PISSED at Manfred and want him + Crane out. Also, today was a bad bad day for the franchise. Players around the league had been waiting for something and they did not get what they wanted. He said MLB is supposedly talking behind the scenes about pre-warning teams early in the season as word is players want blood and expectations are that MLB may have to protect the Astros by doling out heavy suspensions for head hunters. I swear, if that shit happens, I may have to buy a ticket to the all star game so I can beat Manfred’s ass myself. Fuck that gap toothed piece of shit.

    Polarizing figure, Curt is...but good to hear him bash the Astros. He immediately stands up for Kershaw, too, which nobody else does.

    Cheat = no suspension
    Hit a cheater = suspension

    I hope Manfred gets booted and Crane is forced to sell. Fuck, McCourt was forced to sell for having bad financials, and as much as I hate McCourt, he didn’t condone cheating that could permanently hurt the integrity of the game*.





    * As far as I know. Eh, fuck McCourt. Fuck him.

    People think boycots cant happen.
    You need a big enough motivator to get the masses behind a boycot.

    You know what though... I no longer think steroids and HGH is cheating.
    Its unhealthy behaviour unbecoming a role model athlete.
    But its not cheating.
    Its legal drug use that some players are allowed to have due to being white and having bad white genes :D
    But black and mexican guys with lots of natural floating testosterone dont qualify.
    Same with texans since they are the white exception to the testosterone rule.
    Probably has something to do with vitamin K.
    In light of this kind of real tangible cheating I am seeing the steroid era in a new light.
    We were babies. Naive to what cheating really is.
    Knowing is half the battle.
