    They’ve played against some of the worst teams in the league? I’d kill to have a schedule that includes the Tigers, Orioles and Royals this early in the season, not to mention the slumping A’s.

    Re: 2022 MLB Season - Better Late Than Never

    I’m not getting too excited, but the Orioles are actually looking kind of decent. They won 5 of their last 6 games. Beat the Twins twice, Royals twice, and won the opener against the Cardinals.(Of course they gave up an inside the park homer to Harrison Bader, but still lol.) Kyle Bradish had 11 Ks against STL. They’re also leading the league in turning double plays.

    LFG.

    Also: Josh Naylor of the Guardians got 8 RBIs in 3 plate appearances. Hitting a grand slam of Liam Hendricks.

    Anthony Rendon bats as a lefty for the first time in his major league career against Brett Phillips during an Angels blowout/no hitter, and of course he hits a home run! You can’t make this stuff up

    That was the absolute silliest thing I've ever seen. Last night must have been heaven on earth for Angels fans.

    Ah, there’s my Orioles. Giving all of birdland some false hope by winning a couple games...only to be completely destroyed. Stop red birds, that’s enough, they’re already dead

    Twins/Astros game was suspended due to inclement weather: i.e., tornadoes touched down in most of the state including my county. Fun stuff.

    Re: 2022 MLB Season - Better Late Than Never

    And just like that, the Orioles nice little 10 game run of winning some games has completely evaporated. A good majority of the key players are out with injuries, and they’ve lost like 4 straight.

    Fans are really freaking out about them not calling up Adley, and while I want to see him debut in the bigs as much as anyone. I don’t think it would make a real difference at this point.

    This whole set of games is against the AL East, so the Yankees specifically will be able to pull away with their league leading record.

    Oh, and this happened:

    John Fisher, who worth a mere $2,200,000,000, is doing a bang on job of absolutely shredding the Oakland A's. Lots of non-A's fans seemed to think the winter sell-off (well, trade) of almost all talent was just another Beane-esque Moneyball rebuild. But it was asset stripping as those trades didn't net much for quality prospects. The team is now nothing but AAA and AA caliber players. 2nd lowest payroll in the MLB. ticket prices have gone up. Attendance is dead worst. Oh, and the A's record is also dead-worst in baseball.

    Not a fun time to be an A's fan.

    2022 payroll is 20m higher and current record is 5 games better. THEY'RE BETTER!

    Seriously, i know how poorly and cheaply the Pirates have been run for decades now. its a pretty disgusting tactic by billionaire owners when they never make any effort at all to be competitive, and too many fanbases suffer for that.

    Think what makes this talent stripping so frustrating is that it was so obvious and just an excuse to drive the move to Vegas. A's fans were whining when it was happening and I saw a fair bit of "you're overreacting, the deals look bad but you always ship out talent, you'll make the playoffs with a $20m payroll" type of dismissal of the concerns from fans of other teams. Fisher is burning everything down and seems to have little interest in selling, so if the team doesn't move, it will just be more of the same. And as always, fans just don't matter.

    Re: 2022 MLB Season - Better Late Than Never

    The Jays have finally fired Charlie Montoyo and I can't say I'm that upset. He seems like a genuinely good dude, but he was a horrible manager and totally lost the team this year. John Schneider has been promoted from Dukes of Hazzard bench coach to Interim Manager, so let's hope he also brings Daisy along for the rest of the season.

    That was one hell of a terrible game for my Sox.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Oh, it was nasty. Like, not even mad at the other team for winning so much, but yelling at your own team for being such a dumpster fire in their own field.

    They started the year really hit or miss, very up and down. One game they'd put up 10+ on a team and look like a force, the next they'd get destroyed and look terrible. So I had meh expectations. Biggest issue seemed to be the bullpen, collapsing late. There was a very long start to the year where we did not win a game that went to extra innings, too.

    But lately, it's been a whole lot more bad than good. And when you look at the record against AL East teams, I'm pretty sure we still have yet to win a series this season.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    The Padres just acquired Juan Soto and Josh Bell from the Nationals for a ridiculous amount of prospects. These prospects are so good that the Nationals moved from 24th to 8th in the farm system rankings in the space of a few minutes.

    It's dependent on Hosmer though, IIRC

    Apparently not. He's no longer part of the deal.

    Re: 2022 MLB Season - Better Late Than Never

    It’s still a done deal and Padres get Soto and Bell, as well as keeping Hosmer and Washington will probably get someone else instead of him. As a Padres fan this makes me extremely happy to see them making these moves, and it gives me hope that there’s a chance I can see them win a World Series in my lifetime.

    Washington got some solid prospects on their end too.

    Legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully has passed away tonight at the age of 94. Huge loss for baseball and Dodgers fans.

    Rest In Peace, Vin Scully.
