Thread: Has Gerrit Cole been cheating?

    Hitters should be furious. MLB doctored the baseball to have them be lighter so they don't get their homers. The lighter ball also increases spin rate and velo, so it is both harder to make contact and harder to hit out. Now they want to take away the grip substance that allows the pitchers to control the harder thrown baseball, which now becomes a safety issue. This change wasnt needed and now rather than admitting their mistake, they are making it worse
    Wish List
    [] New owner
    [] New GM
    [] New Manager
    [] New Hitting Coach

    Manfred is a weak , incompetent commissioner. He has no idea what to do about anything.

    Ok maybe I agree more here (in reference to his pace of play post on another thread)...
