    With how lenient these penalties are, Roberts would probably get 2 weeks paid leave during Spring Training with a $200 a day per diem for Glendale hookers.

    That POS Hinch got one fucking year even though HIS players cheated for THREE YEARS! And the shit fuck lied and said he didn’t condone it. ITS YOUR FUCKIN TEAM! You shit fuck ass bitch. Reports are he was emotional over the ban, I hope he chokes on his own vomit and gets ass raped in hell. The bitch got mad in interviews over cheating accusations. Goddamn, a one year suspension? The fuck. Die asshole.

    How about the billions of dollars in bets that fans placed under an assumption of fair play?

    I'm sure if I put my mind to it I could come up with a workable solution.

    The Cardinals and Rockies are supposedly inching closer to a deal according to Morosi, though it still does not appear to be close at this time. This is going to be hilarious when the Rockies make this trade with the Cards for a lesser package so they do not have to deal him to us. The Cardinals system is VERY top heavy with 3 prospects in the top 41 of MLB Pipeline's Top 100, but it falls off after that. The Rockies want a mix of MLB ready players and prospects. I have heard that they are very fond of Matt Liberatore and I would not be shocked if they wanted him+ Nolan Gorman or a Dylan Carlson. Though it may be tough to get that much back the deal unless Arenado waives his opt-out. Would think that the Rockies would also try to get Bader back in the deal to man CF for them.

    I don't see any reason Arenado would wave his NTC unless they completely reworked his deal and gave him more guaranteed money.

    I actually didn't mean NTC, I meant opt-out and yes, they will probably need to put in more money somewhere to get him to waive the NTC and opt-out as there is a rumor that he prefers to stay here in CO and wait til his opt out if he really is going to have to find a new home.

    I knew they wouldn’t take the title away but I would have been okay with an official asterisk on their “championship”

    Same
    Unfortunately, it's all about $$ at the end of the day
    Not justice
    They're not going to piss off a large, growing baseball market.
    It's bullshit, but it is what it is.

    Weird, I said "NTC" but I also meant his opt-out. Yea, the only way he waives the opt-out is if he completely reworks his whole deal.

    Why should they be pissed at an asterisk or vacating the championship? They should be ashamed they CHEATED to win it. No way I defend the Dodgers if they did that. This is like the bullshit fines they hand out for texting and driving. Not going to change anything.

    Yes, I agree.

    Five seconds after Eric Gagne was proven to be part of the steroid scandal years ago, I tossed that stupid goateed shirt of his I had that read "GAME OVER." My Frisco worshipping Bondo lovers all made ready to jump me about how much of a cheater the guy was, but I never gave them the fuel. I wish every record that Canuck loser acquired in Dodger Blue was stricken from the books forever. He's dead to me.

    If LA ends up implicated in this cheating scandal as well, eff them eternally to boot. The hell with all of these guys. I'll start following minor league nowhere teams if I have to.

    When are the Portland Mavericks in town? I'll pay to watch those dudes ...

    Something tells me there will be a lot of Astros hitters with HBPs during Spring Training.

    I expect to see this a lot this season. Some justice would be if the umpires look the other way.

    Passan reporting that the Cards and Rockies aren’t close to a deal and one remains unlikely.
