        I saw the way you brushed off the Astros, sound team management beats big bucks all the time.

          More parents are pushing their kids towards baseball because of CTE in football, I believe.

            Smoltz is such a great guy. I love how him and Glavine have become such ambassadors for the sport. He makes so many good points, and hes completely right about the Astros.

                      Brady did not "struggle" in college. Just had bad coaches. They wanted a running QB which Brady was not. All Brady did was win every time he got in the game

                          Smoltz has a bit of Rainman in him. He also spent numerous years with Glavine and Maddux, who are the same as Smoltz. All 3, give them an inch and they'll kick your ashtabula.

                            Verlander and Cole are better starting pitchers than anyone the Yankees have. Also the Yankees middle relief pitching is suspect. Houston's beaten the Yankees the last 2 times in the playoffs and will do it again.

                            You can’t trust anything Smoltz says. According to him, he’s the greatest pitcher that ever put on a uniform. If he was so great, why did they only win 1 World Series in that “14 division titles” run.

                              Brian Marquez Guess you don’t watch postseason baseball. Come on, you know these guys throw with 2-3 days rest in the playoffs, so your premise there is a little off. Plus, you need a lesson on what sarcasm is. Not sure you understand.

                              Maybe because it takes the entire team to win a championship, and not just someone who plays every 5 days?

                            With the shift the players are like fine can’t shift into the stands 😂 I personally think the shift is bad for the overall health of the sport.

                                            The Red Sox are struggling this year, but their situation isn't dire. If the pitching works themselves out, then they will become the powerhouse team they were last year. For the Red Sox it isn't too late. If they come charging back, then they
                                            will be the team to beat. They will be the only team to handle the Astros.

                                              @Ivis Gutierrez I agree now. The Red Sox are finished after getting swept by the Yankees. I think some of the players are just trying to stay healthy for next season now.

                                              David Rodriguez you mean the bullpen has been horrible right? Sure they’re capable of turning it around but you’re in a bad situation when there’s a chance that they’re sellers at the deadline.

                                              with the Red Sox on a daily basis. The pitching has been horrible, but the guys they have are still capable of turning it around.

                                            When the ball has 20% less drag because the laces are lower, the ball is "juiced", this isn't even up for debate, they admitted it. The question is only to what degree it is intentional.

                                                  Why do you guys think the mainstream sports media doesn't cover baseball more?

                                                    Because ESPN covers basketball/NBA soooo much becsue they have a $24 billion contract with them that ends in 2024 ... so FOX says wow you like basketball we like basketball, to try to compete with FOX .... and of course American Football is considered the pluralistic “favorite” sport of the country ... baseball realistically seems to be a regional thing from broadcasting and television ... but in terms of kids playing, baseball is a NATIONAL sport

                                                    @itheuser First the NBA is more star based and those stars have a broader impact on their community than MLB players do since MLB players don't have the personality reach NBA does. MLB players are muted with their personalities it seems, NBA stars are a lot more expressive and I think that's because the league allows it.

                                                      Why haven't they cut the middle of a baseball use when home runs were less hit compared to the ones being use today?

When he talked to a-rod a couple days ago he talked about trading draft picks (cant trade draft picks in baseball) and now tells smoltz yelich spent 6 years in the minor leagues (he spent spent 3 years in the minors and debuted at 21 years old, very young in baseball). And he has top ask everyone about bryce harpers contract like he's even been relevant this year. Everyone forgot about harper until colin asks them about his contract. Easy to tell thats one of the only topics colin actually know anything about so he's gonna run that into the ground

Players are swinging for the fences a lot more. That’s like saying the ball is smaller in basketball because more threes are made every year. Larry Bird, the elite scorer in his time took 1.5 threes a game. Curry takes like 12.
