@AudioOutlaw @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo You realize that the time between pitches has steadily increased right?


i.e. "back in the good old days" pitchers and batters didn't take this long.

@DodgerBytes @PagansOedipalComplex What Rose did is SOOOOOO much more potentially damaging to the sport of baseball than any substance any player has ever taken.


Gambling has the potential to remove competition from the game completely, to turn it into kabuki theater that exists only for the enrichment of gamblers and mobsters.  Gambling nearly destroyed MLB in it's early years, which is why the game has had a strong zero-tollerance policy since then.  Go read up on how damaging the gambling scandals in Taiwanese baseball were to that league within the past decade.


When guys take drugs to try to get an edge, at least they're still trying to win.


Also, never forget that Rose agreed to accept a lifetime ban from baseball in exchange for MLB halting it's investigation into his gambling activities.

Prediction:  The Padres will get a few lucky breaks in 2015 or 2016, make a deep (but ultimately fruitless) playoff run fueled by Matt Kemp heroics, and Kemp will join Garvey as a retired Padres number.

@DodgerDodger @ABSmileBunch The lineup needs Kemp's bat more than the rotation needs Lester.


If money is an issue, then bolster the back end of the rotation with guys like McCarthy.

Reply

@LiterallyPFP @Bawfuls So?  The team is as popular as it's been in a long time, attendance is up, and ownership clearly feels like they have something to prove in terms of winning.


Eating half of the CC/Ethier contracts in order to move those guys would free up some money too.

@Dustin Nosler I'll believe the Kemp trade rumors when it actually happens.  Until then I still maintain it's unlikely, particularly within the division.

Even with the shitty stingy voters these days, I would be shocked if he doesn't get in this year.  Smoltz is also probably a slight favorite to make it but I won't be totally surprised if he doesn't this year.

@DodgerDodger Probably that 36 isn't that old for a 1B with good plate discipline, they have a DH slot he can use for some of those later years, and that $21M in 2018 won't be all that much.

Lets laugh at reddit's baseball sub together.

Here's someone proclaiming that Bumgarner is the best pitcher in the game, based on his postseason performance: http://www.reddit.com/r/baseball/comments/2kfj4k/madison_bumgarner_is_the_first_pitcher_to_throw_a/clktybh

Here's someone else pointing out how dumb that is, and also suggesting that most giants fans would trade him straight up for Kershaw no question. Then a slew of Giants fans come running to say that they absolutely would not.  http://www.reddit.com/r/baseball/comments/2kfj4k/madison_bumgarner_is_the_first_pitcher_to_throw_a/clku1hz
