Good morning baseball fans!
Here’s a roundup of what’s going on in the National League East.
- MLB is pushing to stream games on Facebook now, because apparently people still use Facebook?
- There are obviously a lot of rule change propositions being thrown around by Robert Manfred. If you were commissioner, what would you do?
- Here are the five breakout candidates for the 2017 season, so get your jersey money ready.
- The Rangers and Rougned Odor are discussing a potential extension.
- Baseball needs a lot of things right now, but the most pressing isn’t a new pitching clock or extra innings reform: it’s kindness.
- Some of MLB’s most high profile (for better or worse) umpires are stepping down. Once again, for better or for worse.
- The Nationals are super sneaky this offseason.
- Intentional walks are potentially on the chopping block with a new set of rules coming to baseball. How dare they.
- Colby Rasmus’ neck beard is some next level facial hair.
- Spring training is here, but gasp, that also means that spring training yips are here too.
- Intentional walks are a beautiful baseball anomaly, darnit.
- Will 2017 go down as the year Shelby Miller makes a triumphant return?
