    The Rangers think there is, apparently. Got their shopping done early.

    I would be amazed if there wasn’t a lockout at this point. I’m 50-50 on whether it will disrupt the season or not.

    Yeah, I definitely think there will be. But, if it can be resolved quickly, then why didn't they already get something in place? That makes me think it's going to be long and into the season.

    Mariners are finalizing a deal with Robbie Ray! This makes me very happy. I've followed him for years and he's got just about the nastiest stuff I've ever seen when he's on.

    MLB.com and it’s apps getting rid of MLBPA stuff (likenesses, news about current players, etc.). Looks weird.

    I swear some people just live in an alternate fantasy land. The ones posting on Twitter and the like, lobbying for Gary Sheffield to be in the HOF. He's in the Mitchell report. His power numbers came in his 30s. Do you honestly think Sheffield should be in ahead of Bonds? If Bonds (and Palmiero) doesn't get in, Sheffield never will. Crazy talk.

    Saw this stat today:

    Greg Maddux pitched over 5000 innings, winning 355 games. If you said he faced the minimum batters each inning, that's 15,000 batters. Apart from intentional walks, he went to a 3-0 count only 133 times. That is not a typo.

    Players and MLB made no progress today. So fucking stupid that they can't work this out. Spring training definitely going to be delayed. If the season starts on time, I'll be amazed. Fuckers.

    I hate Rob Manfred so much. What a load of shit is constantly coming out of his mouth. The Owners are absolutely not negotiating in good faith.

    In other sucky news, universal DH now. So, Max Fried was the last NL pitcher to win a Silver Slugger award.

    I'm going to miss NL strategy.

    I don't know a single name that you just typed, but I do know that is a Padron cigar and those are tasty.

    You and me both.

    In other, happier news....I'm sure Rush remembers this guy's dad.

    Indeed. His dad was the best defensive outfielder of all time. Watching Andruw get a jump on balls while sitting in CF front row seats was a highlight. His instinct for first step was crazy.
