    Re: 2022 MLB Offseason Thread

    Major League Baseball is currently in a lockout and therefore the players cannot be training or rehabbing at team facilities for the time being. That hasn’t stopped the MLB players from finding a place to work out, however, as Britt Ghiroli of the Athletic reports that the MLBPA has reached an agreement with D-BAT Baseball and Softball Facilities to use their fields until the lockout comes to an end.

    Since the players are the ones working all year while the owners sit around and do nothing, that just means a stoppage of work for the players, GM’s and coaches. Teams cannot be in contact with any players, no free agents can sign, and no trades can be made. Injured players also cannot receive rehab or get the treatment that they need at any club facility. They are also barred from working out with team trainers on or off of the facilities.

    This obviously will not work for a group of players that is motivated to get this season started on time and to make it an exciting one as they have fallen behind Football and Basketball in recent decades because of the slow pace of play and the underrepresentation of the game’s best players.

    MLB has done a poor job of marketing its stars and they have another golden opportunity to mess it all up or actually do something great with it. Fernando Tatis Jr., Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Shohei Ohtani, and Jacob DeGrom should not be sitting at home right now–or at D-BAT for that matter–and that is something baseball must fix ASAP.

    Reds to bring versatile infielder to camp

    How do you get 85 AB against lefthanders when your OPS is .945, but only 311 plate appearances against RH when your OPS is 815?

    Bad coaching or bad timing?

    meh, dumb question... I came here looking for owner's offer chatter

    Or perhaps it's nearly all park effect.

    Reno had 23 guys who OPSed higher than did Querecuto.

    League with fewer lefty pitchers?

    Within: The Red Sox have now hired Katie Krall as a minor league coach, making the Sox the first org with two women on their coaching staffs. Bianca Smith: “That’s going to be history in itself…It’s kind of sad that it’s still a big deal, but we’re both really excited about it.” twitter.com/alexspeier/sta…

    Both Krall and Smith started with the #Reds. I wrote about Krall in 2020 https://theathletic.com/1883966/2020...shared_article

    This story contains discussion of suicide. If you or someone you know may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.

    Tampa Bay Rays bullpen catcher Jean Ramirez died by suicide this week, according to the Tarrant County (Texas) Medical Examiner's Office.

    Ramirez died Monday afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, according to a preliminary autopsy report from Tarrant County obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

    How tragic. It's a shame how much isolation has been forced upon us. No wonder why suicide rates are up.

    Tom Selleck (as Thomas Magnum) was the first "regular guy" (i.e., not a professional ballplayer) I ever saw wearing a pro-model fitted baseball cap. As an 11-year-old kid, I thought that was so cool, and I promised myself that some day I would have a pro-model fitted baseball cap, too.
