    I mentioned Jordan before Jordan. He was Doc before Doc.

    Nice testimonial from old teammate and friend Jerry West.

    Reminds me of the McDonald's customer who got scalded. Yeah, coffee is hot. I don't need a written clause on the cups to tell me so. And baseballs traveling at 100 mph can jack up someone's face. Common sense. Stupidity should not be rewarded.

    Could Seager look a bit more like Cheech or Chong there?

    Also ... all these White boys talking like they are Black. Culturally appropriating bastards ...

    hahaha, that was funny. Best parts

    1. Roberts seemed legit worried, which was hilarious on it's own. Like "fuck, did JT get a concussion?"
    2. Joe Kelly was easily the creepiest as he just answers and stares vacantly into the phone.
    3. I have heard on multiple occasions that Buehler is a walking F-bomb, so it cutting out right when he was about to drop one is hilarious.
    4. Dude... Seager was 100% fried.

    • The Mets have come to terms on a ten-year, $341MM contract extension with star shortstop Francisco Lindor, covering the 2022-31 seasons. Lindor will be paid a $21MM singing bonus, followed by flat $32MM salaries in each year of the deal. $5MM of the annual salaries will be deferred, paid annually from 2032-41, for a total of $50MM in deferrals. The deal also contains a fifteen-team no-trade clause without any opt-out provisions.

    Eric Stephen of TBLA says he isn't on the 60 day DL meaning it's probably a mistake on MLB's website. Dodgers never really announced it and there isn't really a reason to put him on it unless they wanted to add someone else to the roster, which they aren't at this time.

    Hernandez, Verdugo and Pederson are not off to great starts with one hit between the group thus far. The Red Sox are also staring down the barrel of a 3 game sweep at home to the tanking O's. For some reason, the Sox announcers seem to think they're contenders this year in which I say... "huh?"

    There was a piece today about Joc Pederson. In it they talked about his success against lefties this spring. He has changed hitting coaches and stances this offseason and actually spent the winter working on how to approach lefties. Get this... he said that he had not done this for a few years since he knew he wouldn't face lefties with the Dodgers so he just concentrated on being great against righties. WHAT THE FUCK?!? Dude admits that he didn't even try to improve against LHP while with us. What a dumb approach, you woulda faced lefties if you showed at all that you could get productive AB's against them!
