why haven't you watched npb yet? or do you not actually like watching baseball?
>>100505680I have been asswanker
>draggie doos kek
>>100505692i am delighted to hear this.
>>100505680It's a half measure.I've never supported any weak men and their compromises.
>>100505733there are no half measure. you enjoy baseball or you dont. do you have any other purpose here? you area a weak man yourself, no one would support you
>>100505722the crap game was boring though which should i be watching kumibro?
>>100505750the streams were poor and monopolized into one shit stream frabricated for tv. gints dominated and that was the only stream that worked for me. my drags got dicked harder, but i could not ever witness it. a blessing in disguise if you will. there is one last game at 2am pst, but fuck staying up for that.
>>100505747>you area a weak manI am the only strong man left here. My shoulders are wider than doors, my stamina is days long.There is no man here without me.
>>100505680I've been watching NPB for a few years now. Based Chiba Lotte is on a tear.
>>100505872>roylels>no mention of basedballdisregarded >>100505873i went with dragons cuz typeface bias. but watching umetsu pitch a gem last weekend sold me on him, loved his style and command.
>>100505923You will find my mentions within your own ass.
>>100505953>mentionsgee not like anyone else knew you were one of the few faggot samefags who made up more than 40% of this shit, extended off season general.. you're better filling your own ass, the lord knows no one is as capable as you are
>>100506025Let's take it easy on him why don't we? We're all just trying to get through offseasons and we may say things that we don't mean but it's all because the lack of baseball. Just give him a break.
>>100506035you fags say stuff you dont mean even when baseball is prime for talkin and watchin. are you a co-conspirator to destroy the glorious sport of america? i think your allegiance should be called into question
>>100506055I bleed. I feel. I seeth. I mean no harm to anyone or anything on this general! Lord knows I tried talking baseball the last few nights but could only come up with a few meme team names! I swear to god baseball has been gone for so long I forgot how to even discuss!
Let's take it easy on me too

>>100506070>I tried talking baseball the last few nightswhat a disgrace. you merely conjecture the thought of a few nights of baseball talks absolves your sins? no, speaking of the merit you began a discussion is more than generous to your quasi-exhausted labors. i implore you and everyone else to talk baseball, regardless of nationality. the fact that our general in notated is /mlb/ is closed-minded in itself. we are a global entity, we must act the part. stop being a fucking faggot and promote our glorious sport. now is our time to strike within the hearts of others. if you can disagree with myself, you can kill yourself

Will you fucktards stop leaking out of your containment board?It's like I can't browse 4chan for FIVE FUCKING MINUTES without someone posting a "LE EBIN S4S IRONIC MAYMAY XD". Your dipshits are like a fucking EBOLA epidemic, as soon as one shitposter posts anything even remotely related to /s4s/ another 500 crawl out of the woodwork as start spamming, checking dubs and posting unfunny pictures of shit "memes" that don't even make any fucking sense. And can we talk about /s4s/'s memes for a second here? It's amazing how the board most obsessed with memes has failed to produce even one meme that isn't complete and utter garbage. The closest thing you cocksuckers had to an actual successful meme was topkek, and even that was ripped off ylilauta. And when was that? Two years ago? What actual real memes did /s4s/ produce since then? Just a whole bunch of frankly quite boring pictures with zero humor or exploitability. It's no wonder that nothing from this self-declared "OC factory" ever actually spreads to other boards. This is painfully pathetic to watch. Most of you aren't even being ironic anymore. Some of you actually actually come here and in full sincerity participate in this circlejerk. You excuse your actions by saying mindbogglingly idiotic shit like "this is like old /b/! lel so random", but guess what retards: I've been on 4chan since 2006 and this place is nothing, NOTHING like old /b/. Fucking STOP SAYING THAT YOU PIECES OF SHIT. That's outright OFFENSIVE to anyone who's seen what pre-2007 /b/ looked like. You nuggets of cancer perfectly embody everything that KILLED old /b/. It's like someone took the 2008-era cancer, took THE VERY WORST PARTS of it, concentrated it to 200% levels and then wrapped it in a painfully thin veil of "irony".You know? I'm ain't even mad. Let this be a containment board for you newfags and ledditors. I honestly don't have the energy to care about anything that happens on this website anymore. Just wanted to say fuck you. Bye.
>>100506124We;ve abandoned baseball...when it needed us most..teh notion that baseball has abandoned us...has been misguided...options in kbo...npb...proved fruitful...yet..../mlb//...has...spat on the face of bat and ball...spat on teh face of teh eternal struggle between teh bat and ball...
God I miss the old /mlb/... sighhh
keep in mind newfigs: you're rused the second you start browsing this board and continue to be in a constant state of rusification as long as you continue browsing itand if you're posting? good lord. when does the rusing ever stop

Hey /mlb/, im curious about the sport but im in a non baseball city (MTL)How do I get into baseball, what’s the hitch?Figured now was a good time with a 60 game season
>>100509557Please don't watch our cum guzzling sport. Isn't there something involving snow or ice or drinking shitty beer or something you should be doing?
>>100509713There’d be CFL Preseason around this time of year but the CFL season has been COVID’ed
>>100509557Thanks for the baseball team. No take backs.
>>100509948We’re gonna buy 50% of the Rays and have them play 25% of their games in the olympic stadium
>>100509557you get into the game by watching a shitty team lose all the time and eventually you just get stockholm syndrome and maybe a trophy every 30 years
>>10051002050% of the Rays? What's that gonna cost? Couple hundred bucks?
>>100510206and The cost of replacing whatever mascot the rays have by Youpi
>>100506226next saturday i believe if rotation holds true
She’s the best thing about baseball.
>>100509557It's best to get into it as a kid, failing that just play a couple games yourself. Or if that's an issue you can play a video game. The Show if you have a Playstation, OTP Baseball if you have a PC, Tapout 2020 if you have a smartphone, and go fuck yourself if you have an Xbox

It's hot. The sun is shining. I'm sweating like a pig. The president doesn't give a fuck if Russia puts bounties on our soldiers. And there's still no fucking baseball.
Is it just me, or is this the longest off season ever?
>>100522874No that's when we miss a whole season because of a strike
Good morning, /mlb/. Hope you guys had a great weekend.
>>100524587>Good morning, /mlb/. Hope you guys had a great weekendHi, anon and fren.
>>100524587OH NO I... I... I'M POOOOOOODSIIIING
>>100524587Hello dadsbroWorked on chopping and clearing some downed trees on saturday. It was hot, humid, and there was no breeze, but it was good work to do considering i have no work otherwise.Slept great too
>>100525849That sounds great anon. I put a new bed together Friday night and was working on getting a new set of furniture in my room. I also washed my car, made a grocery run, got my dog groomed, and was able to have some drinks with friends while giving them a hand doing some maintenance on their pool pump.
>>100525869Yeah, I've got no work otherwise so as hot as it was and will continue to be, I'll gladly take something physical to do to stay busy. No work had led to bad sleep, boredom is a killer.
>>100525901Sorry to hear that man. I've been in an essential industry since Day 1, so I've never been able to stay-at-home.

How have the Dodgers not won a WS?
>>100526986Used too much money, it looped back around
>>100526986Not a doyers fan but I would say kershaw deserves the most blame followed by the Astros and Dave roberts
>>100526986Not a Dodgers fan, but let's take it easy on the Dodgers.
>>100527155>>100527315>>100527322They have the most wins over the last 7 seasons. Its puzzling how that hasn't become a championship
>>100527428Why would regular season wins that stacked up because they picked on teams like the poodres and rookies count for anything?

How does a man get hit by a pitch in six consecutive games. That seems insane.https://stathead.com/tiny/n9zSe
>>100530630who tested positive
>>100528450there's not going to be a season
>>100530630Fuck this god damn idiotic sperg motherfucker. Holy shit I've had it. I'm done. That was the last straw. How many times does this retard even have to post that stupid ass image? "ayanometties.png", we get it fucktard. You've been posting the same image for years LITERAL YEARS on end. It wasn't funny the first time and it sure as hell wasn't funny this time. You're honestly really pathetic huh? Is this the highlight of your day? Do you come home after a long day of work and say "hey! I think I'll post the ' ayanometties.png' today for the bazillionth time!" Go fuck yourself with something sharp and long. You're a huge piece of shit and it reflects in how you fuck with everybody with that image. No one wants to see it. It isn't even relevant today and hasn't been relevant for 5 long years, but hey some faggot living in the past still worships it like it was the messiah. Oh my god you piss me off so much.
>Team is too stupid to start properly rebuilding and holds onto its aging players just because they were part of the dynasty JUST
i heared that T I E B R E A K is on MLB nowthe times really has changed
Don’t wanna get any Mets niggers excited, my coworker also part times at Citi Field. She works as a parking attendant or someshit. she said they would start in August, possibly to expect fans.
I fully expect one player from each of a teams 25 man roster to opt out of the season. Might see some stars. Might see some literally who’s. You niggers don’t know who has cancer parents or immune deficient children. This is wild tbqh.
>>100531999hope Mookie opts out
Just finished Major bros, how do I fill the void from a lack of baseball now?
>>100532043A baseball kino like Hardball or a comfy comedy like Eastbound and Down

Top 5 LA Angels of all time? Nolan Ryan, Trout, Vladimir Guerrero and Carew would definitely be in it.
>>100532476Last slot on the Top 5 Angels would probably be someone who was on the 2002 squad.
>>100532464Why is the Angels called the LA angels if they aren't even in LA county?
>>100532486I meant Andrelton Simmons
>>100532488Orange County is part of the LA metropolitan area.
>>100532509I think Tim Salmon is more likely to be in the top 5 than him.
>>100532510But still, Anaheim is its own city and I think it would be cooler if it formed its own identity. I know they were called the Anaheim angels for ~6 years and the California angels for ~31 years. I think they should go back to that.
>>100532528You won't see the Anaheim Ducks change their name to the Los Angeles Ducks for example.
>all the big names are pulling out due to health concerns>even less of a pull to zoomers and Twitterfags only watching for storylinesohnonononono manfredd seething

Recently saw a Red Sox Top 5 that consists of Ted Williams, Yaz, Clemens, Boggs and Cy Young.
late night /mlb/ can be a blessing
>>100531286None of those guys have much trade value and they still draw fans, it's the old post-window Phillies formula. Meanwhile the farm is a lot better than it was 2-3 years ago. Remember they almost traded Bum at the deadline last year but then they went on a hot streak that month, and they just drafted their second elite catching prospect in 3 years. They're not banking the future on the old ring winners anymore, but they aren't taking any of them behind the barn with a shotgun either.
>>100531286Oh and also say hi to the wife.

Baseball is simple yet nuanced, fun but stressful, easy yet hard, simple to understand but with complicated rules, and it’s the greatest game ever created.

>>100533569America used to be the best country in the world until the Republicans ruined it. Baseball is still great though.
>>100504885how does Greinke manage to be the most based pitcher alive
>>100533736The Republicans were goof for 6 years, but they were pussies about reconstruction
>>100533751I was thinking more along the lines of the last 30 years, but what ever.
>>100533991Besides win the civil war name one good things republicans done did
>>100534470race baiting, identity politics, cancel culture, and pulling down racist statues

BOB NUTTING IS A GIANT PIECE OF SHIT
>>100534589>>100534612I thought it was weird that Desmond was saying MLB was only 8% black, because that excludes all the black hispanic players. Like in Desmond's mind pic related isn't black even though he's way darker than Desmond.
>>100540744*Damn forgot the pic
>>100537821>IT WAS HER TURN
That does itChina must pay
>>100534994>People keep claiming that pitchers are terrible hitters. They aren't.
>>100541098Honestly the owners have been planning this for a while. Severe contractions of the minors were already on the table and even cheapskate teams like the Mets have been beefing up their spring training and AAA facilities. Wuhan virus just gave them excuse to speed things up.
>>100541133*them an excuse
NLDF coming in fast and hot with the only three videos of pitchers hitting a home run
>>100541098That sucks, my local Collegiate team's league also ceased operations this year due to how low attendence is expected to be. Sucks too the Miners' new logo is way more appealing than the actual logo
Gents, your BACK TO BACK AAA champions
The Bats are neat and all but it truly sucks that Louisville doesn't have an MLB team. We actually have a really neat history with the National League and are of coarse the home of Louisville Sluggers Most people here would be more interested in an NBA expansion, apologies but myself included, but the MLB would find a great audience here
>>100541569I think Nashville or Charlotte would be a lot more likely. I'd love to see one of the FL teams nobody gives a shit about get moved.
>>100541664They are cheap franchises, maybe the Marlins can be moved here. Southern teams always fail. Atlanta has the Braves and Texas has the Astros, but every city in the South either has a history of franchises failing or have an openly apathetic audience. Baseball is a yankee and somewhat western sport, the South doesn't seem to want anything to do with it.
>>100541773>Baseball is a yankee and somewhat western sport, the South doesn't seem to want anything to do with it.Strange that so many players come out of the south then. I don't mean just Texas or Florida either, backwards redneck states like Alabama, Virginia, Missouri, South Carolina, etc. always seem to produce stars and especially star pitchers.
>>100541155>pitchers hitting a home runExtremely fun, a wonder why the shit league hates it so much
>>100541871Because it's so absurdly rare that it's not worth the other 9999 times out of 10000 that it doesn't happen.
>>100541855Got any numbers that they produce a particularly large amount of people? I've looked into it and the Cubs, just for example, is about 1/6th southern but 1/4th the country is from the South so it doesn't seem like it's a particularly active pool compared to others.
>>100541910So the top 20 states (per capita) in terms of producing pro baseball players are:1 and 2: Florida and California (no surprises there)3. Georgia4. Mississippi (what a stupid name for a state)5. Arizona6. Louisiana7. Alabama8. Oklahoma9. Hawaii10. Texas11. Connecticut12. Washington13. Nevada14. South Carolina15. Tennessee16. Kansas17. North Carolina18. Missouri19. Delaware20. VirginiaSource is: https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/baseball-hotbeds-where-do-pro-baseball-players-come-from/Oh and for what it's worth, New York is 39th, which is amazing when you consider it's one of the most populous states with the most popular baseball team in the world.
>>100541896Oh well then grr, gotta hate it!NL has it and AL doesn't have it at all, that's sad for them but I don't even think twice about their shit league.
>>100542044You don't have to hate it, just understand where the argument for the DH is coming from. Pitchers have never been good hitters*. Even today, the so-called "good hitters" among pitchers are guys like Grienke and Madbum, who have career BAs hovering around the .180-.220 range. And those are the elite hitting pitchers who announcers say "oh you better watch out, this guy can hit!" for. Putting any pitcher up to the plate is basically a free out unless you're pinch hitting for him. It's a massive waste of time.>inb4 "but catchers aren't usually good hitters, why not have two DHs!" like NL fans usually argueThe absolute worst offensive position player in MLB is a catcher, Jeff Mathis, with an OPS+ of 48. The average pitcher has an OPS+ of -15.*Ruth and Ohtani are the exceptions
>>100541569I think Cincinnati would have a big problem with it.
>>100532892SF has the money to push through it and most of those guys are still useful, even if they are overpaid. They all potentially expire within the next two seasons, too.

The angry mob has finally reached "keep all accused roiders out of the hall" level. Anyone in American history who was a product of their time must be canceled and nothing else they ever did in their lives is allowed to matter any more. There's only one thing that is allowed to matter any more or else it's ok to commit crimes against you.

>>100549033The ERG spam during the offseason drove them all away. Someone let them know baseball is back now and that ERG has been banned.
How much would you pay to make out with Fernando Rodney's unwashed armpits after a game? I think I'd go up to $37,000.
>>100549202Go Cubs btw
>>100549053Where do we find them?
So what's going to happen to minor league baseball?
>>100551109minor league season already confirmed cancelled. minor league players have been confirmed to be allowed by MLB to play in independent leagues, with their MLB team's permission. I don't know how it will impact the minor league teams' finances, but it can't be good.
Are they broadcasting summer training
Cubs are taking it all this year.Grandpa Rossy is back and will lead the Cubs to a new golden age
Reminder that Chicago Cubs are the protagonists of baseball, and their fans are indisputably the best, the most pure, and care the most about the sport.
>>100551373Isn't MLB planning to dissolve 40 minor league teams, or something like that?
So are Yankees fans immortal? Because every time they talk about their team they speak like they were alive for every single championship
>>100551848HEY!I EARNED that pocket watchFuck You!

The story behind Bobby Bonilla Day is well documented at this point, but if you don’t know it, here goes:The Mets wanted to get rid of Bonilla and his $5.9 million salary in 2000. Rather than just take a payout, his agent struck a deal that was a bit different: The Mets didn’t have to pay him right away. They could wait 10 years and instead they could pay him $1.19 million for 25 years starting in 2011.The Mets took it — and here’s a surprising turn — because ownership was getting 10-percent returns on their investments at the time with a guy named Bernie Madoff, meaning they stood to make more money by paying Bonilla in the future. Oops.

>>100554711At least now it won't be a ridiculous blowout.
>>100554711so instead of having two things like the movie it's going to have one thing like the movie, ok
>>100554711Are there even who sux fans? The Cardinals are the right choice though. Should we let BAJP know?
>>100555371You can up and go screw
Can't wait for baseball, lads.

>>100555485I support my team the White Supremacy Sox. They will win the league.

Reminder that every single player was tested today, so don’t fucking panic when you see the headlines in 3-5 days of “MLB REPORTS 23 PLAYERS HAVE CORONAVIRUS”, they’ll be bedridden for a few days and be on track for opening day.

The Yankees didn't appear in the World Series at all in the 2010s. Wonder if it'll be the same this decade.
I wonder how bad the free agent market is going to be this off season.

>>100557110Makes sense, the field is already built regardless of muh chink virus
>>100557276>>100557306I always tell Aussies to go with the Oakland A's but you've just gone with one of their division rivals. At least the Mariners are also a west coast team so the night home games will still be on in the afternoon for you.
>>100557419I say Australians should support the Rangers. Texas, though it sucks shit, has pretty good BBQs and the landscape is similar to Australia's

Someone should do a virgin vs chad about the Dodgers and Giants.
>>100558272this with dodger chads
>>100558284The Giants would probably be the chad when compared to the Oakland A's.
>>100558301A's have won more titles in the Bay Area but the Giants are more popular overall.
>>100558294Go back to China you dumb leaf
>>100558312no they haven't you dumbass, both the dodgers and a's have more titles in california
>>100558347I know but you'd expect the Giants to be the more popular San Francisco bay area team overall.
