    I would agree with that. It doesn't mean he is the best HOFer in the building. But I'm glad it's over with and someone took took it down. His story is pretty incredible.

    Plus no more Tom Seaver as the highest vote getter as a pitcher talk lol

    Mariano was obviously a no brainer. Very deservedly so also. Red Sox fan don't respect many Yankees player but Rivera and Jeter are probably the two exceptions. Am kind of surprised he was unanimous though. But I guess that breaks the mold for the future. Kind of glad that Edgar finally got in to break the DH stigma when Papi is eligible.

    Probably in the minority, but still want to see Bonds and Clemens in the HOF. They would by no stretch of the imagination be the first PED users to be inducted. I still rate them as the best player and best pitcher I have seen in my 45 years of watching baseball.

    Solid rotation to start the season. They really showed a desire to improve their team this off-season. Hope it turns out well for them.

    I know that feeling, it was rough a few years a go when the Reds went into full sell mode.

    starting to realize the damage of getting that close to a title like they did in 2016 and not winning it and what that does to a fan base. fans knew going forward we didnt have the horses to beat the good teams but were good enough to win a bad division so attendance suffered. Small market teams cant keep big name players when being in the bottom third in attendance

    It will be interesting to see how the Twins play in the ALC this coming year.


    Strangely, I'm somewhat optimistic.


    I think it will hinge on this: Sano and Buxton, mostly.


    I think if they return to form (remember Sano was an All Star) the Twins will fight to win the ALC or at least a Wild Card.


    Eternally optimistic about the Twins, though deep down inside I'm always a skeptic.

    That's definitely a big blow, 1 game away would sting. I understand the small market big time, I loved that the Reds resigned Votto when they did but it really kills your teams chances of paying anyone else. And since they got rid of everyone a few years ago, attendance went to crap.

    Love that the Reds are still trying to make moves, but I feel like Keuchel or Kluber would be better going after at this point than Relmuto. Don't get me wrong, would love to have him but if they are going to give up some of their better prospects in this deal I'd rather get a front line pitcher.
