    Ortiz OPS+ with Minnesota without roids: 108
    Ortiz OPS+ with Boston with roids: 148

    He doesn't belong anywhere near the HOF.

    MLB Network is having an interesting discussion about them right now. One of the writers talking said "Look how Sosa helped save baseball in 98 after the strike of 94. Look how much interest there was in the sport."

    One of the former players on the same panel goes "When I think of Sosa, I think of the PED reports. I think of the corked bat. I think of all the times he got caught. That was one guy who was potentially taking a spot from me and other clean players because he was cheating to get ahead."

    Final year as well for Clemens.

    I'm okay with Ortiz being elected. Bonds, Clemens, and Curt Shilling can get fu**ed.

    There’s no way Rogers would allow a second team in Toronto. Plus unless there’s a shared stadium you’d probably have to build one out in Mississauga.

    I would prefer Montreal to keep divisions intact, but I suppose Nashville and Carolina would accomplish the same thing.

    Vegas is getting a team at some point, only question is will it be the A’s or an expansion team.

    Has anyone suggested they just have a second Toronto team? Or a Vancouver team (Seattle would sh-t a brick)?
    I interpret it at the usual "build a nice place to play or move. 2027 is your deadline."
