    Right now the the pressure is too much. As soon as theyíre eliminated, Orioles will start winning again. Mark my words. Iíve seen this pattern over and over again.

    First winning season in a while. Those past few seasons post Buck were brutal.

    Just ran across this today and not sure what to think. What do you all think? Do you like all this?

    "On the heels of the designated hitter being made universal in both the American and National League last season, Major League Baseball is making big changes to the game in 2023 that are meant to improve the pace of play, increase player safety and inject some action into a sport that could sorely use some juice. In addition to some minor tweaks, there are four major MLB changes: a pitch timer, a limit on pickoff attempts, defensive shift restrictions and bigger bases. The play alterations that go into effect on Opening Day on March 30 should lead to some big changes at the All-Star Game on July 11 in Seattle as the batting averages of players who put the ball in play should skyrocket thanks to the elimination of the shift. If those players are fast, they should be able to steal more bases in 2023 than in prior years because their targets will be larger and pitches will be limited in how often they can attempt to pick them off. Power will still be important of course, but contact hitters who are able to spray the ball all over the field and make things happen on the basepaths are going to see their stats spike, especially if they’re fast. Hitting .300 and being able to steal a base used to be important. Now, finally, maybe they will be again."

    1. I do NOT like the DH being adopted in both leagues. The NL maintaining the traditional game is important. With all of the inter-league games, whatís the point of having two leagues? Doesnít anyone care?

    2. Instituting a rule to eliminate fielding shifts is totally unnecessary. Why restrict a managerís prerogative? Whatís more important: hitters being more committed to contract incentives (e.g., home runs) OR winning games?
