Honestly, Aroldis Chapman should be arrested and charged with attempted aggravated assault. He wouldn't likely get convicted, but that's not the point. Maybe something like that needs to happen at some point to drive home the point that this is not okay. Brosseau could literally have been killed.


MLB won't do anything about it. Maybe a fine and even less likely a game or two suspension. Tampa should just refuse to play tonight. That's what it will take for MLB to actually do something.

Does that cover three "starts" or just 3 consecutive days?

Totally surprised there was any suspension at all. But it's been appealed and will almost certainly be brought down to 2 games. Even 3 games is too little. If the league really wants to stop this suspend him the rest of the season.

Milone gave up eight runs in his start for the Braves and it will likely barely warrant a mention.

The Brewers' team OPS jumped from .690 to .718 after yesterday's game. Now up to 22nd in MLB. 18th in OBP. One more big game and this will be a league-average offense.

Tigers are down 9 - 0 to Cards in the 3rd. Rough couple of days for them.

The Rays are the first team since at least 1901 that has an entire starting lineup of left handed batters. Pretty amazing!

All the major live poker tournaments have been postponed or moved online because of the pandemic. The internet version 2020 WSOP Global Casino Championship - the season-ender for the WSOP Circuit - just completed. A fellow named AJ Kelsall won it.

His poker screen name is "RandyLerch."

Chase Anderson had a stretch in the 4th inning where he gave up 5 home runs to 6 batters.

Yea, Chase is having a brutal year. Hits are up. Dingers are up. Not good.

How can a pitcher be left in long enough to give up 5 homers in one inning? That is just bad managing.

Bartolo Colon is the greatest. I am not sure if Beltre or Colon is my favorite baseball player ever!

That is amazing. I was so happy when they dumped him in '82. Might have been the first baseball transaction in my life I cared about.

Justin Verlander to undergo Tommy John surgery. I wonder if we have already seen him throw his last MLB pitch. I can’t imagine him being brought back late next season to throw a few measly innings down the stretch. He will be 39 at the start of the 2022 season, which is a likely timeline for when he will be ready to pitch again without rushing him back.

Considering the current CBA expires after the 2021 season & the amount of bad blood between the sides, I suspect the start of the 2022 season will be delayed in some manner..
