You joke, but some of the Francophone population in Quebec are still probably reeling over the loss of the Expos and refuse to support the Jays or MLB as a way to stick it to their Anglophone masters.

What people today don't understand is what an amazing baseball town Montreal was and is.

Such a shame what happened in Montreal.

Indeed. Montreal seeded the foundations of baseball in Canada that the Jays finished building in 1992 and 93. Only now are we starting to see the fruits of their labor start to grow in fantastic, young baseball talent coming out of Canada. But there certainly needs to be more in terms of even distribution. Most of the players coming out are from BC, the rest filling out from Ontario, and then Russell Martin.

Likewise, Atkins has asked Rogers to have the payroll bumped up and that the pitch 'will' result in more allowance.

Also heard from the grapevine that Roberto Osuna is now a permanent reliever, and that the team is looking at possibly making Joe Biagini a starter in Spring Training.

With the Rams back in town, still feels weird not seeing Dodgers fans also be Rams fans, like it used to be for forever pre-STL move. It was almost always Giants/Niners vs Doyers/Rams.

OTANI

2 doubles against Kuroda and hit the game winning single in the 10th

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWbSV_KmUKU

If I'm being remotely honest I am going to join the two-teamers when he comes over.

game was soo good, Fighters' OF Nishikawa made a risky steal w/ 2 outs in the 10th to get in scoring position. Osera was shook but still threw a nice slider to Otani...but he knew they were trying to get him inside and just went down and smacked it. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Fs' still down 2-1 though.

Yankee Stadium will be undergoing renos for 2017



Of note: "The Yankees will also release an additional 200,000 tickets priced at $15 and below in order to attract a larger amount of fans for 2017." This includes the introduction of variable and dynamic pricing.

Not every new ballpark can be AT&T!

I honestly believe that the Yankess ownership group doesn't care as much about the stadium's history as say, Boston or the Cubbies do. Sure, they care about the team's history, but they see the stadium as a means to an end.

The thing is, ultimately, you need amenities to attract the casual fans out to the Bronx for maybe a day at the park once, twice a year maybe. The hardcore Yankee fan will go no matter what, even if the stadium is considered 'sterile'. But the people living in New Jersey, Manhattan, or Brooklyn that don't care? That's who the Yanks are trying to attract with this stuff, and why I don't have a problem with it.

And also, even if Yankee Stadium II is considered sterile, it's an infinitely better looking ballpark then the cavern that is the Rogers Centre.

I seem to have thought it was either the Angels or Yankees, but I'm not surprised. Orange County can get racist as fuck from what I've heard, and considering how lily white the Angels are as a whole...

Diamondbacks hire Amiel Sawdaye as assistant GM.

But the biggest nugget of gold from this?

In other D-Backs’ front office news, via Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, the club has parted ways with Ed Lewis, a former veterinarian and long-time acquaintance of executive Tony La Russa who somewhat improbably ran the team’s fledgling analytics department.
