Baseball 2021

Will we get a full season? Will the Yankees ever win another championship? Can the Dodgers repeat? How much will the Tigers suck and what will the Cleveland Baseball Team be called? 
 

Stay tuned...

Yikes, the Dodgers are **** loaded. Padres too. They are the new top rivalry.

Should be a fun race out there in the NL West, and you’d be surprised if neither if them two end up representing the senior circuit in the WS. Harder to pick the AL, I feel. The Yankees will be potential juggernaut if healthy, but that’s not an insignificant if.

As objectively as I can, I currently have the Red Sox 4th in the AL East. 

I don't care if we suck this year, I just want to see a game at Fenway with a full house.

Yep. Some things are actually more important than winning.

Cautiously optimistic about the Mets. Don't think we're serious contenders, but being in the playoff hunt will be nice.

New owner looks promising.

Tatis Jr signs a 14 year $340m contract extension. He's 22. Unreal. 

He’s also insanely talented. The AAV isn’t actually that bad in today’s money, and could look like relative small change in a few years if he keeps producing at the level he is, or improves further. Could be a very shrewd move by the Padres. It is also an obscene amount of money, of course, way above what any single person should have, let alone a 22 year old who hits a ball with a stick for a living.

Judge and Stanton are made of glass.

That is definitely a worry, and not entirely suprising for 7ft 250lbs athletes.

They’ve changed their offseason conditioning from a lot of heavy bulking to more agility work this year. Doing yoga and shit, both carrying a leaner build than before. You can only hope it helps, though few will be very surprised if/when either/both land on the IL.

If they don’t...

Youtube are showing 20 odd matches for free on the MLB this season, which is nice.

I am a bit of  a lapsed follower. I was fortunate to have a couple of long holidays as a kid in North America and basically watched baseball most days! Then a watched MLB  on five quite a lot before that was cancelled. Since then only watched bits and bobs. I know a lot of people find it very boring but I always thought of it as quite relaxing  and laid back to watch in the summer.
