Re: 2016 MLB Season

I know... I know...

It's hard not to look down the line and cringe. O's have Manny Machado through 2018. I'm hoping they somehow lock him up. But... it's going to cost a FORTUNE.

Eric Hosmer is the player us KC fans would like to see locked up long term. Realistically, it's probably not gonna happen. Boras will cash in handsomely yet again. Oh and we got this one tonight Todd!

Ventura doesn't appear to be in very good standing inside the clubhouse right now. There was no reason for him to do what he did. Take your beating (no pun intended) like a man and keep working your craft to improve. Ventura's issue is between the ears and I'm not sure there's any fix for that. Very bush league as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah... I'm not a fan of throwing at players. I thought Yost's post game comments danced around the sentiment that players on KC aren't thrilled about some of his antics (though, I wasn't really aware of Ventura having issues going into the game). Your catcher didn't exactly move fast to stop Manny.

Gotta say, I'm not a big fan of charging the mound, either. I get the frustration, but you put yourself at risk (not to mention the possibility of a suspension). I was disappointed to see it all go down. At least the two teams calmed it down quickly.

Yeah, neither player has the cleanest of records. The difference is Machado has been producing and would appear to have the support of his teammates. Ventura's act has grown thin within the clubhouse. I have a feeling his days are numbered here in KC. Good game so far tonight.

Machado - a year or two ago - did a very foolish thing where he swung and released his bat on purpose. It went flying at the A's third baseman. No excuse for that. He denied it at first... But Buck Showalter - who is a total class act - had him hold a press conference and admit guilt and apologize. Was definitely a not so good moment for Manny.

He generally appears to be liked by his teammates and is loved by fans. I think he's a little on the cocky side, but, in general seems to be maturing. Last night his teammates certainly stepped up after the game to support him.

Re: 2016 MLB Season

Well...suspensions were issued.

Not surprised Manny is told 4...I'm guessing he'll get it to 3?

Ventura's 9 game sounds like a lot...but is essentially a 1 game start suspension unless there's a double header snuck in there.

I'd love to know how the MLB goes about figuring this out.
