Pretty funny but not surprising. They have like exactly the same bWAR, Jeter has around 5 more fWAR. But he was obviously present more, like 800 or 900 more games it took him to be slightly more valuable.
Really sucks but it’s exactly what I thought would happen. The league completely blew the steroid era so now Manfred is going to go hard on stupid stuff like sign stealing when you are the ones that put the tech right there.
I don’t see what the Red Sox were doing as such a huge deal, and the Astros suspensions are longer than I thought. But while I won’t really agree with it when the hammer comes down on Cora I’ll be shocked if it’s anything less than between 1 year suspension and banned for life.
Part of it is ballot tracking and public ballots becoming so huge. I don’t think anybody would have been one of the 3 that didn’t vote for Ken Griffey Jr. even just a few years later. Forman wasn’t going to vote for Jeter strategically and decided it wasn’t worth the backlash.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
