    Indeed. Kids, come on, it was years ago. If I'd been a true Hoser, I'd have come running back here immediately and posted great chunks of her diary for all to chortle over. Or sent a link anonymously to Chips. lol. Or something.

    How many male California-based Hosed-ers with professional aspirations that they would have felt comfortable linking to have there been?

    I was actually commenting on the fact that you apparently don't appear to know who SABR is.

    At the time when this board was formed Sabr, Fuller and myself were the only ones residing in CA. I can remove myself from this list of potential people because I never went to Dodgers games, nor linked to any websites. If I had I would have directed you to pornhub. Fuller was in the bay area, so that leads us to Sabr.

    Marcus Semien has 20 homers. It's July 17th.

    Hahn kind of sucks. At least Anderson takes a lot of that sting away.

    Probably just should've rolled with Semien, Trayce, Montas, etc... teams record would probably be no worse.

    Again, Kenny is the main stain here. Hahn is collateral diarrhea runoff. Who knows what he could do in a real organization.

    Of course, pretty much all his in-season moves this year have been garbage. It's nice Shields turned the page because maybe he's moveable now.

    It would be amazing if they flipped Shields for a quick profit like a house on HGTV.

    But it'll never happen.

    I think his contract still makes him a tough sell, unless for some unknown reason he thinks he can make more by opting out at the end of the season.

    Mark Teixeira to announce retirement today. Was just talking about him the other day; is he a Hall of Famer? I am kind of leaning towards yes; eventually.

    I say no. He doesn't really have much that jumps off the page. His raw counting numbers (404 HR) are nice but he never really stood head and shoulders above others at his position or league-wide. He was Top 5 in MVP voting only once, Top 10 only twice and shockingly only made two All-Star Games.

    Here's what B-Ref puts for his HOF statistics:

    Black Ink
    Batting - 13 (187), Average HOFer ≈ 27
    Gray Ink
    Batting - 78 (319), Average HOFer ≈ 144
    Hall of Fame Monitor
    Batting - 108 (147), Likely HOFer ≈ 100
    Hall of Fame Standards
    Batting - 33 (252), Average HOFer ≈ 50
    JAWS
    First Base (28th), 52.1 career WAR/37.9 7yr-peak WAR/45.0 JAWS
    Average HOF 1B (out of 19) = 65.9 career WAR/42.5 7yr-peak WAR/54.2 JAWS

    So Bill James' HOF monitor puts him... JUST in while most other things don't think he's very close. In particular JAW really shows how he just didn't do enough at the position to warrant it. Not a career WAR eligible guy and his peak is below theirs. I say pretty easily no actually.

    Only 5th switch hitter with 400 homers. 400 doubles. I can see him getting in on an off year. Not saying he's a first ballot.

    Maybe. Of "current"/not yet eligible 1Bs I'd say Pujols, Thome, Miggy, Ortiz and hell maybe even Votto have better cases. Obviously a few of the guys have time to build on that. You also have guys like Bagwell and McGwire who are better but have the PED stench on them.

    He could be a good candidate because he has a nice smile and he's white but he'd immediately be one of the worst 1B in the Hall.

    Unrelated; since baseball will be in the 2020 Olympics there has been chatter of a 2 week break in the MLB season to the pros can play. Would put a damper on the WBC. I guess as of now MLB is the only professional league in the world that has not announced a break.

    I would think you just start the season a week and a half earlier and don't have an all star break?

    Player A: .279/.354/.486, 118 OPS+, 27.6 bWAR
    Player B: .269/.361/.511, 127 OPS+, 52.1 bWAR

    Obviously the thing that immediately sticks out is the WAR number as one of the two was dramatically better in the field but the rest of the stats are fairly similar.

    So the season starts March 27th? Yuck.

    MLB has little to nothing to gain from doing this. The games are going to be going on overnight in North America.

    They've already chosen what direction they want to go with when it comes to international play, and the NHL is back to following suit: Run the damn thing themselves.

    IOC doesn't want to pay the NHL insurance, travel costs, or let the league have access to their players. They're going to tell MLB the same thing, sure send the players but you won't make any money off it, so is the "exposure" really that valuable?

    I think deeming the bobblehead as "looking nothing like David Ortiz" could've sufficed. But no, call out your manufacturer for using their Sambo mold.
