Itís a good one, too.

MLB announces its 2020 rule changes. Most we knew about. One we didn’t was that managers now have just 20 seconds to make a replay challenge. pic.twitter.com/hEq83C4cpR

That's fantastic. This team needs to continue to tank for the next year or 2. It was amazing to think people thought this team would compete again by 2022.

Steamer has us about 70 and ZiPS 71 (my rough calcs). So no, 59.5 isnít real.

For comparison, CJ Abrams hit .401/.442 in rookie ball over 32 games before advancing to A ball for a 2 game stint. I don't know if it's is taking the wrong player or our development program being so piss poor, but it's highly discouraging when a highly heralded guy like Witt Jr isn't able to come in and dominate the way his draft pedigree says he should.

I wouldnít worry at all about Witt. Every single scout and GM loved him, itís universal. And in the event he busts, that wonít be on DM, since every team takes him 2.

Looks like Ned picked the wrong year to retire.

I canít wait to see a pitcher get injured and be forced to stay in the game, because the ump thinks heís faking.
