    7 Astros plunked in first 5 games, most of any team.

    The Cincinnati Reds have had six players hit in their four games (1.5/game), slightly more than the Astros' 1.4/game.

    The Astros have been hit with a lot of pitches this spring. I wonder if the umpires are as upset as the players and fans are at the Astros. I doubt they would do anything to screw them like expanding the strike zone when they are up to bat snd vice versa when they are on defense. But I wonder if they will just look the other way when one of them gets hit and automatic ejections when they retaliate.

    From Field of Dreams:

    [The pitcher throws another ball at Graham's head.]
    Graham: Hey ump, how about a warning?
    Umpire: Sure. Watch out you don't get killed.

    This is righteous...if he in fact does return it.

    A French prison inspector wrote in 1837: “It is to the prisons that the historian must go if he is to make a sane judgment of a people’s moral state.”

    MLB will be instituting a plan to curb cheating. (kind of long)

    The Reds have been hit by a pitch 14 times in Cactus League play, the most of any club in the Majors this spring

    Bumping this up as we the fans cannot forget what happened here. They do not get a free pass.

    I thought it was getting bumped because of this:
    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/...on-length.html
    Commissioner Rob Manfred did reveal to ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt on Wednesday that he’s “done” investigating the matter. Manfred has not had time to write a public report yet, though, but he will issue a verdict sometime before the season begins (via Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times).

    Former Astros catcher Evan Gattis tweets picture of ‘Snitches Get Stitches’ Mike Fiers glass.

    Classy.
