    This is mind blowing. So glad we don't have to wait until the end of the season or get in some sort of bidding war.

    That was the first thing that came to mind. I honestly was not looking forward to this mini season. All I could think of was, "this is our one shot with a super team" and it had me unnecessarily worried. So much pressure off the team and him not playing in front of a crowd could lessen the pressure on him trying to be worth his contract. Too bad he is miserable being in LA.....

    Heyman reporting that there is a last ditch effort going on to expand the playoffs this season from 10 to 16 teams

    Bet this would come with an agreement for the Universal DH in 2021 as a compromise.

    that’s a silly compromise IMO. fuck this expanded playoffs. 8 is already a lot, now you want more than 50% of teams to make it? Especially with all the mediocrity ? Ugh

    looking at all our young pitching starting to mature should keep us on a roll
    sure all the talent surrounding him had to be a factor why wouldn't it?

    fuck that. Like especially now when there is like 3-5 teams who are head and shoulders better than everyone else, you want to create some dumb ass 3 game first round or whatever that could knock them out because they lost 2 of 3 when some shitty team got on a hot streak.

    This is all a government conspiracy by the elite to get you to still love the Dodgers by thinking they gonna win in 2020 but its all coming from the sick twisted minds of McCourt to make more parking lot monies!



    :D
    The way you can tell that this is just a lighthearted joke was because I didnt follow it with 20 more paragraphs.

    Fuck it.
    In this new bubble future a March Madness type playoff that makes the regular season much less important for anything other than stat stuffing so players can get their contracts and owners can sell tickets and tv rights and fans can have more opportunities to go to see a game live = the way of the future.

    Adapt or go watch curling.
    You are homos right?
    That is what homos do.
    We adapt to the changes and we roll with the punches.
    Shed your scaly skins or lose your detachable tails!
    Roll motherfuckers roll!
    If you want to live with the homos.
    And not die when the reign of the flood of fire goes wild on you!

    great call [sarcasm]
    putting the worst umpire ever in charge
    this ought to end well
    • Umpire Angel Hernandez, who has sued Major League Baseball over a lack of top assignments, will serve as an interim crew chief this season after a dozen umps decided to sit out amid the coronavirus pandemic. Hernandez, a 27-year umpire vet, will be one of the interim chiefs. He sued MLB in 2017, alleging race discrimination and citing that he hadn't be assigned to the World Series since 2005 and hadn't been promoted to head a crew. The case is pending in federal court in Manhattan. Hernandez has had his share of highly publicized run-ins on the field over the years. During a Red Sox-Yankees playoff game in 2018, he had three calls at first base reversed after replay reviews.

    giving him the opportunity to find new ways to blow calls would be exactly what the MLB lawyers need as evidence against him
