    Should the 5-inning rule for starting pitchers to earn the win be altered?

    So I have been thinking about the ways the MLB has changed over the years, and the tendency to pull starting pitchers before 5 innings is so much more commonplace these days, and when they do get pulled, they are ineligible to be the winning pitcher. Take for example, the May 20th Red...

    While I know the Rox are not exactly minor league baseball, I thought this was the best location for this thread.

    I know some people are frustrated that we didn't step on the Thunder's throat, and the resulting win was closer than anyone wanted. But the end result was a win and you don't get extra points in the standings for margin of victory. So now the Rockets are coming to town. the 1-15 Rockets. This...

    11-20-21: The Thunder are a Path to a Winning Record

While this is probably more of an indication of my age and memory, I thought "wait, Jason Bay was a Red Sox?" Of course he...

    As a FYI for my fellow Floridians, the Blue Jay "home" games against the Red Sox in Dunedin are now on sale: https://www.mlb.com/bluejays/tickets Got tickets for Wednesday night's game, but I think there's availability for all three games still. Chance to see the Sox regular season in...
