MLB is surveying all employees across the league about baseball so I will make sure to tell them that everybody wants Universal DH and that the Astros should be removed from the league

I told Manfred to his face that they should remove World Series home-field determination from the all-star game and it took about a year so I assume the results of my recent poll will be in place for 2022

Trying to figure out why the owners are taking this stance, and all I can think is that they want a shorter season as an excuse to cut salaries again, since they know they can't fully open to fans at the start. All of a sudden the owners care deeply about public health and player safety? Yeah right.

Guessing they will try and "compromise" by delaying the start of the regular season but pushing it through October, then doing another neutral-site playoffs so they can play later in the year

hot take: The 2016 Cubs championship was the result of an incredible confluence of good fortune and that core was never as long-term robust as people thought

Here are the top 10 2016 Cubs by bWAR that year:

They had 7 guys produce either a career-best or near-career best season all at the same time. Of these top ten, Baez is the only one who hasn't seen significant decline since 2016. And their farm system produced no one on this level since then either.

Yeah at face value I'm kind of annoyed, but glancing at our recently-non-tendered large beef boy who wasted his peak value, I don't actually mind selling two guys on an upswing at this point

^^^ hissssss ^^^

That's a beautiful hunk of metal.

For real though it's easy to be mad at the Cubs beginning a tank, but I think it will be a quick tank and not a franchise tank like the Pirates. Money is hosed up. And like somebody else said, in a vacuum 2015-19 were great and anybody would have asked for them during the previous tank.

Escalator resets after just one year below CBT. Not to say that they're gonna exceed in 2022 or anything, but if there are free agent opportunities available then or 2023 that can lead into a surge of young players, they'll do it

I'm actually pretty sad about Caratini, I follow a lot of Cub instagrams and he was ALWAYS present in peoples' stories (in the Before Times). I got the sense he was a real popular locker room guy.

Do people care about baseball bats? I have a ton of bats around the house and I need to go through them and see what I got so I can finally build a rack to keep them organized. I figure I could snap some pics and talk about the different bats I own and baseball bats in general if people care to read about that stuff. If anything maybe it'll remind myself of what I already have so I stop buying new bats, seriously it's getting ridiculous.
