    Two days ago Ohtani reported cramps in his back. Last night with bases loaded in the 9th, down 4-1, he had to be pinch hit for because he had leg cramps.

    It would be right in line with the Angels for Ohtani to get hurt as soon as they take him off the market and go for a playoff push.

    The problem for the Twins going back a decade was failing to have a pitching staff (SP and RP) built for the playoffs, and their bats often disappeared in the post-season. Their pitching has definitely improved (although it remains to be seen how much of that success is due to playing in possibly the weakest divisions) and they've showed some promise at the plate that could improve as some players get healthy.

    I still don't expect them to win a playoff series this year and sadly the playoff L streak may continue.

    Perpetually. I'm only equipped with an emitter, not a receiver.

    Every National League team would only have 61 home games under the old format.
    Oh my god no, not in a million years.

    Get the owners involved. Bring back interleague as it was and the winning side of the ASG gets home field for all interleague series.

    I literally can't believe it's been so recent.

    But it shouldn't mean anything concrete. It is and always has been a fun little exhibition game. It didn't grow to its importance because it had any material effect on the real season. But one year the fun little exhibition game ended in a tie, because they had already played everyone, because that's what everyone is there to see, all of the favorites play in one game, and everyone lost their minds.

    And it was the first time that triple play (8-3-5) had been done in 90 or 100 years, lol.
