    Lou Brock passes at 81

    He made baseball so exciting! Big reason I enjoyed watching with my folks. RIP. Posnanski's piece on Brock's life is in The Athletic and is free. Looking forward to reading it.

    Rick Porcello, Mr. Met

    I voted for Rick in the Tommy John contest whenever I got the chance. I'm happy I never won it. One of my fond memories of him was (as a Tiger) how he acquitted himself when Youks charged the mound after a HBP. View:

    MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred: ‘We Need To Make A Change To The Baseball’

    This. But how do you begin to find "the happy medium? Who doesn't remember a young pitcher bleeding all over his white pants from blisters? A young Justin Verlander comes to mind, for me. He made changes to compensate. Health issues in the population of pitchers must be really hard to track...

    I remember it too, Rip. After that he was always surrounded and handled his celebrity with aplomb. Cathy handled it all with extreme grace. The tributes and memories posted here along with thoughts of Stiffy have consumed my afternoon. Time well spent. Cathy, you are in my heart! It was Bob's...

    Rocco Baldelli: new Twins manager.

    Please explain, don't be coy! Good for Baldelli! He went through some tough times (healthwise) while he was in Boston and handled it with such grace.

    Of course I am worried! I voted 6. The Sox won their last 4 out of 10, mfys won their last 8 out of 10. DUH.

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    I asked for and got a refund. NESN is available in my area but NESN+ is not. I called and spoke to an actual person (so points to them); I pointed out that I was out-of-market for the Red Sox when they are broadcast on NESN+ and therefore ought to be able to watch on MLBTV. The guy was nice but...

    David Price 2017

    If I may refer to the Price-Eckersly thing... there was just a quick remark in the game commentary by Eck that Rodriguez was kinda his protoge (meaning Price). Sorry - I just thought it worth a mention.

    Jerry Remy: Players should 'learn baseball language'

    I was truly shocked to hear him express this sentiment. My husband, who is not a native English speaker (but speaks it well) was downright offended. I watch a lot with the tv muted, so I have to ask - has Remy has been more off-the-cuff this year than previous years?

    Which type of plate discipline is eating Panda?

    That Tomase story with Krukow voicing his opinion that Panda has an eating disorder - wouldn't you know that when I clicked on it to read the background for it was a big ol' ad for junk food (including some of my favorites). That's messed up.
