    Baseball is making money.

    But I'm sure the 'some' owners have seen to bad ratings and the drop in attendance and the AWFUL long term contracts some of the idiot owners have given out. See Pujols, Ellsberry, Stanton, etc. and it's still early but Harper and Manny who didn't lead their teams to the playoffs, and neither made the all_star game this year.

    So I won't be surprised if the owners play 'hardball' this year.

    I doubt this years WS will come into play in this investigation since the home teams lost every single game.

    And BTW, no.. This is a crazy thing for him to say, actually might say something about him. Cheating is cheating.. Actually IMO steroids maybe worse.

    Looks like the rule that will require starting and relief pitchers to face at least three batters or pitch to the end of a half inning before being removed will become a reality in 2020.

    This Astros sign steal is getting really big.

    I used to regret that the Nats traded this guy away. Now not so much.
