MLB Baseball Twitter Rumors Reaction!! NSS Report !!

MLB NSS Report!!! Baseball Twitter Rumors Reaction!!

Baseball is on the way back (Maybe)!!! Probably without fans!! Probably Maybe but is a step forward!! (Disclosure: rumors nothing official).  But hey with everything that Dana White is doing to bring back MMA, baseball also needs to show that they are also trying to make a comeback.  So, whether is fake news or not, is nice to see that they are Baseball related news of a return plan.  So, let’s talk some baseball Twitter rumor mill nonsense.

The rumor on Twitter is that on June 10th spring training is going to start or pick up where it left off.  Then on July 1st will be Opening Day 2.0 for baseball!! Teams playing on their home field, located in Arizona or Florida more than likely. 

Here is the tweet that started it all:

                Personally, I will be okay with if this rumor became a fact.  Baseball gets me hype what can I say.  And off course, the good news or just a favorable rumor was “shut down” less than 2 hour later.

Here is the rebuttal tweet:

                The question of who is right, we don’t really know, because this are rumors from the best source of rumors Twitter.  Maybe the more important question is who do YOU (or we) want to be right? I want Trevor to be right but I have to acknowledge what Keithlaw said.  Neither side stated the source of their information, but we’ll see who was right with time.

At the end of the day, MLB or Baseball hasn’t spoken out.  But this is still great fun and we are talking about baseball and that is a win for baseball.

So, whether whoever Twitter fingers is right or not? let us keep talking baseball and enjoy when it comes back.

NSS MLB Report: What’s Going On With The MLB? Did we forget about baseball?

What’s Going On With The MLB? Did we forget about baseball?

                What’s going on with the MLB & When is baseball coming back? Also where are the baseball fans? The NBA is officially making steps towards return by trying to open up training facilities and looking into possible venues.  The NFL recently had their virtual draft and is still planning to begin their season on its regular schedule.  Other sports like golf and MMA are planning so when the green light is given it all starts up.  So, what about the MLB?  Opening day was delayed by 2 weeks but that was back on March 26.  Let us talk some baseball and some nonsense.

The Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) has already started their season and have been playing games.  Noted the CPBL have been playing without fans but made up by setting up piped-in crowd noise, mannequin fans and some extremely hyped up broadcasters.  The CPBL has been around since the 1990s and is composed of only 5 teams.  The CPBL does have multiple Dominicans, Americans and Cubans players on their roster.  Even at a small scale its still win for baseball.

Check out some highlights from the CPBL from their twitter account @CPBL:

So, for Major League Baseball the time frame as there will be Baseball in 2020 according to many reports.  Now whether starting out in June, July or later is still uncertain.  Also, the numbers of games that will be play is also uncertain, plans are being made for a 100 game season, but trust MLB will do everything they can to get their 162 games.

I went digging deep into baseball news reports from actionrush.com, usatoday.com and espn.com there seem to be a plan.  One possibility that showing how MLB is getting creative with their season and not dwelling on making up missed games is only playing 100 games.   Note this just may be just premature rumors, discussions or just idea, but the positive is that baseball could be returning.

Here is the (or a tentative) plan: 3 division made up of 10 teams that will only play within their division.  Saying goodbye to the American and National Leagues and realigning the divisions based on geography.  The games will still be play without fans but there will be testing for the players to get them out of isolation, allowing them to play the game simultaneously reducing travel.

Here are the 3 Divisions with their Teams:

Along with the new division and team concept change, some of the rules may change to deal with COVID-19.

Some of the new rules are:

  • No mound visits.
  • On-field microphones for TV viewers.
  • Sitting in the stands 6 feet apart, instead of in the player’s dugout.
  • Two seven-inning games in a doubleheader, which would allow closer to a 162-game season.
  • Electronic strike zone, which allow for better social distancing measures.
    • Electronic Strike Zone = Robot Umpires.

Final Thoughts/ Nonsense Thoughts

So, the MLB is trying to make a comeback and while there is no time frame there is a little bit of hope.  The idea of the new divisions and games played mostly based on their geographical location is actual a smart idea, either way is not like teams play every team in the league. 

The “on-field microphones” make me think about the volume of the microphones and the regulations/restrictions and the access to this? I highly doubt that it will be free, but how you determine what to charge to “let people talk” on field (who would pay for this?)  Or it going to be just a big zoom video conference room reacting to the games and the players will be able to see it on the jumbotron.

 Can you imagine if they just put a Ipad on every seat and let the fans just by the seat and the view from that Ipad.  Ps the Ipad will have a great A camera great for zoom in and other great features to add for the greatest of virtual baseball experience.  The NBA already started doing working with Samsung Gear VR, Oculus and Good Daydream.

Lastly, the Electronic Strike Zone, in my opinion, could help MLB avoid some controversy.  There is still too much unknown factors to make a clear a argument or make a clear decision but drastic call for drastic decisions.

At the end of the day, I am just happy that sports are ( or could be) coming back to create more a sense normality.  To everybody, be safe and best wishes.

Yankees Opening Day!! Nah, We Still On Corona(virus) Time, So… Safety Than Fun…

Yankees Opening Day!! Nah, We Still On Corona(virus) Time, So… Safety Than Fun…

                What should have been a day full of baseball parks new attractions and weird ballpark foods, it is actually another #quarantineandchill aka Staycation aka “somebody please find a cure because I miss sports and I don’t want to watch Grey’s Anatomy” day.  This time last year, I was watching the Yankees on Amazon Prime MLB Extra Innings Free Trial, it was a good day.  Today, it looks like some more Netflix, a couple laps around the house for the kids and maybe a tik tok video.  Let’s say that I miss sports and I want to watch the Yankees, so Let’s talk some Yankees Nonsense.

                Opening day may not be today for the Yankees, but it still a good day.  You must turn positives into negatives in all situations.  Fortunately, and unfortunately, the Yankees have plenty of injuries that take time to heal and with baseball being postpone means that they may be ready for the future start date whenever that will be.

                Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge are the glaring injuries for the Yankees, but now they’ll have more time.  On the mount Luis Severino, is still missing plenty of time, but maybe depending when the season starts and if it will be ending late, he might make a late season appearance.  On the other side, Domingo German who is on suspension, he was probably one player that could have want it to the season to start, his suspension still based on the games played.

                As of right now the number 1 priority not just in sports but also in the world is the health and safety of the people.  With that in mind, we can wait for baseball and just keep hoping that everything gets resolved and people get better.  Sports and entertainment are important but so are the players, the fans and the everybody else in the world.

Thank you for reading, stay safe.

Yankees 2020 Spring Training Nonsense Report!! #Winning!! Yankees

Yankees 2020 Spring Training Nonsense Report!! #Winning!! Yankees

               MLB Spring Training is rolling!! The New York Yankees have played 3 games and won none of them but are still winning in spring training.  MLB spring training is about moral victories and the Yankees are winning all the moral victories.  3 games in and the Yankees are looking like the juggernaut that they are being projected to be.  As long as they stay healthy they will be a problem once the season starts.  Let’s talk some Yankees Nonsense

Pitching

JA Happ – looked fantastic in the 2 innings that he pitch ending with 2 strikeouts in his short time.  Happ look fresh and somewhat rejuvenated this season.  Happ ended the season with 12 wins and 140 strikeouts, in a season where he was probably asked more than he could provide, which that should be different this year.  The Yankees have a bit more depth and even with injuries that could limit James Paxton (3-4 Months), Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka, Happ’s role should still be one that he can handle.  Happ will be a key player during the 1st half of the season.

Gerritt Cole – Debut went was expected 2 strikeouts in 1 inning and he looks like he is picking up right where he left off last season and that is exactly what the Yankees are needing.  Welcome to New York Cole!!!

–Replacing Dellin Betances—

Adonis Rosas, Domingo Acevedo, Jonathan Loaisiga, Albret Abreu are Luis Cessa are in charge of taking over those innings and they are all looking great.

Batting

Welcome Back Miguel Andujar!!!

Yankees Nonsense Conclusion

The Yankees look great so far in the areas that they should.  Injuries are still lagging but they are looking to have the depth to deal with.  So far, the Yankees pitching looks great as the are rotation through as many pitchers as possible.  Batting wise the health Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and the rest of the Bronx Bomber is crucial but with plenty of time till opening day they are looking good.

What do you think about the Yankees so far??

Betts Traded to DODGErs

Mookie is goin Hollywood

I can’t believe this is a real trade got pulled off! Its simply not a trade you see every day. A Franchise star moving just days before spring training begins. But it is indeed happening. Let’s take you back.

It wasn’t that long ago that we first heard rumours of the Sox looking to move Mookie and his huge contract. There was a lot of noice but I figured that the one who was gonna be moved was JD Martinez. Few weeks go by and the Stros sign stealing scandal happens and we heard no news. And then what to me at the moment sealed the deal was when Betts signed a deal to avoid arbitration.

But a couple of days ago the news broke on a huge three team trade that would send the former AL MVP along with David Price to the Dodgers.

Full trade breakdown:

  • DODGERS Receive : Mookie Betts, David Price + cash from BOS
  • RED SOX Receive: Alex Verdugo, Brusdar Graterol
  • TWINS Receive: Kenta Maeda

For the Dodgers, I dont know how they did it, but they are even better than last year, with reigning NL MVP Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Chris Taylor, and now Mookie to the lineup plus another great arm added to the rotation Next to Buehler and Kershaw it’s looking like one of the Dodgers best deals of all time and it might be the missing piece the Dodgers need to finally win the championship that has eluded them for so long.

Minnesota also walks away a winner. A team that last year showed a lot of improvement and looks like it could be a contender in the next couple of seasons and now adding a much needed arm might make them a team to look out for in the upcoming season.

Now for Boston, there’s not a lot of possitives here for the team, they just lost their star and piece for building the team for years to come. This could be because of the Sign stealing situation, maybe from the Red Sox as a sort of apology or punnisment perhaps. This is a very interesting theory that needs a post all to itself, but it’s crazy timing.

Either way I can’t wait to see how LAD does this season. What do you think? Do LA have enough to win it all? Let Us Know down below. That was NonSense.
