He was getting traded whether he threw a ball over the CF wall or not. He didn't want an extension and Cleveland wasn't going to pay him 18m in his walk year.

The only former Blue Jay I can think of at the moment is Bautista and thatís only because of his bat flip and getting punched in the face for it 6 months later.

At least MLB is doing something about the allegation instead of sweeping it under the rug

It might be just because I watch the 7th inning of ALDS G5 every year, because it's the wildest loving inning of baseball I've ever seen, but yeah that's gotta be it. I still think of Hamels as primarily a Ranger even though he no-hit my team as a Phillie and then played for my team for two years.

I know its way down the list of important things, but does Alomar getting put on the ineligible list mean that he should be removed from the Hall? If an ineligible person can't get in, makes sense to take one added out.

Doc was troubled but seems to have been a morally upstanding person. A few Jays like Bautista and Stroman have been, at least in public, good people who have said some decent stuff. However, Carlos Delgado is the one person who seems have been a moral leader, both inside and outside of the game.

Do this, especially with baseball games. Get into a podcast or some audiobook from your library (though libby or hoopla) and you're off to the races.

I'm a big dummy that didn't know anything about any of this Alomar stuff and now really regret using his card in the Show. Whoever that pedophile Pirates closer was, literally can't remember his name, pretty sure SDS nuked his diamond card from orbit because, sigh, once again I was leaning on that card until the allegations happened (and then SDS rightly nuked him). Anyway, I wonder is SDS will do the same here.

Edit: I need to stop playing DD, maybe that will keep people from being predators. That's how it works, right?

OOTP rules, one of my scouting discoveries ended up being the greatest pitcher of all time and I lost that save to a hard drive crash.

RIP Chris Camacho, I renamed the Cy Young after him for my new game.

I started a game in 2019 and by 2022 the rosters had gotten real weird, like Sonny Gray was the Dodgers' top of the rotation guy and the Rockies signing Gary Sanchez to a 120m/6 year deal.

I gotta say, after years of PS folks hyping up The Show as the ultimate baseball game Iím a little disappointed in how sterile and repetitive it can get.

Though I do appreciate how every between-innings fan shot looks like it was created by aliens trying to interpret yankeefans.gif.

The Show used to be the best sports game around but the devs went the EA route and only care about how many microtransactions they can sell.

the weird thing to me is diamond dynasty isn't at all dependent on microtransactions, I haven't spent a dime on the game past buying it in years and never have any trouble fielding a perfectly competent team.

I have no idea why they ruined road to the show or even changed it, it was just fine the way it was

Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays weren't removed from the Hall when they were placed on the ineligible list. (They were reinstated a few years later by a new commissioner.) No one has been kicked out of the Hall - although if we start, Anson and Landis absolutely have to get kicked out.

They've been investigating for how long now? Surely the team will produce an absolute tome of a report on Callaway, since they are taking their time to so thoroughly investigate...
