2019 MLB Season Thread

Can someone explain to me how Odrisamer Despaigne continues to get multiple chances year after year to pitch in the majors when all he ever does is get shelled? He's 32 years old and got a career -2.9 rWAR, 4.94 ERA, 4.35 FIP, and 1.416 WHIP across 349 2/3 MLB IP.

He finds a home as pitching depth on bad teams. White Sox got him from Cincy for that reason.

White Sox will be the first team in MLB to have netting foul pole to foul pole 

That's great!! They've got that in Japan and it doesn't hinder the fan experience. This is something that MLB should have done years ago.

What kind of stupid bunting was that?

You play like you practice, Max.  You’re not going to bunt like that in a game, so why do that lazy crap in practice?  There’s a reason you’re supposed to square around with a slight bat angle and level the bat out as the ball gets to you so you bunt the ball to the ground.  Just standing upright and sticking your bat out at a ridiculous angle is how you get a broken nose, ya big dummy.

You practice like you play, and you play like you practice.  Lesson learned, Max.

Some of y’all have undoubtedly seen it, but it’s being reported that MLB has given permission for the Rays to explore becoming baseball’s first multi-city team. There is apparently interest in playing early season games in Tampa, while closing out the season in Montreal.

I think that it's brilliant, but I wonder how playoff home games would work. A one-game elimination home game would be difficult to negotiate. Tampa should get it for weather reasons, but I would expect that they'd have to alternate.

Its pending MLBPA approval if they go forward. I dont see the players ever approving this. That's a lot of traveling, where do you live? Where does your family live? Also, both stadiums have issues. I'm pretty sure Montreal can get one of the expansion teams if they build a new one.
