    "Should" is the key word there. The MLB isn't exactly known for making sensible and/or prudent decisions

    I hope I'm wrong but I think the bureaucracy of the unions and league will bog it down to no end. It's one thing to introduce replay and concede that they make mistakes now and again. Its another entirely to admit a whole position is ineffectual and outdated

    Make them pay for not scoring. Score some runs and take the lead!

    Within the guidelines set out for replay reviews, replay works quite well.

    Also, props to Dusty for bringing in his 8th inning guy early at a critical situation. He shut down the rally but then got ****ed by the ump.

    eta: I hope that's not the only time he uses Stanek that way. In his career, he's used to pitching earlyish in games, keep him ready for that.

    I'm sorry, but taking balls and strikes away from the HPU is hugely ****ing monumental.

    Peralta is serving almost .500 BA (6 for 13) to LHB

    Get em, Castro

    Yeah, Blum, the Yankees have a mascot, it's the Loudmouth Drunken Knuckledragger.

    They say Peralta is 28 years old, this guy looks 50+ if he's a day.

    Castro looks at the pitch he should of went after and then swings and misses the exact same pitch 3 times in a row

    Good catchers who can hold their own with a bat in their hands are few and far between, and expensive, unfortunately.

    Hardest position to fill in MLB.

    The bullpen is this thin that Baker feels he has to keep putting Abreu out there in these spots?
