Great post, as usual, Freethinker. This absolutely, also, holds true for the serious steroid abuse that is still rampant in baseball, despite the bull$hit put forth by the mainstream, Jewish media that baseball is almost completely steroid free. Only a fool would believe diminutive Golems like Jose Altuve, Ozzie Albies and Jose Ramirez could hit the amount HR's at their sizes. Currently at 5' 7", 160 pound, Ozzie Albies, for example, got a 35 power rating (lowest possible) from scouts when he signed as a 16 year old from Curacao. Expectation was he'd be a career slap hitter/base stealer, in the mold of Rafael Furcal? Yet by the age of 22 he had hit a total of 54 HR's (basically two seasons)and has no problem hitting 400 (plus) HR's to the opposite field. How does that happen? I just saw "Boston Legend" David Ortiz has joined Pedro Martinez in claiming ex-Astros pitcher Mike Fiers is a "snitch" (not a "whistle-blower") for ratting out his ex-team (Houston Astros) in the cheating scam. As you noted, in their culture, cheating, stealing and over criminality must be okay? I guess anything to make millions of Shekels from the stupid ***** that root for them, knowing full well they are cheaters? By the way, even recently demoted ESPN analyst Jessica Mendoza, a tall, lighter skinned American-born Latin woman, who is very articulate and comes off as being intelligent, agreed that Fiers is a "snitch". That took me by surprise, you'd figure she'd have a different attitude, but in the end she seems no better than your average MS-13 hood-rat, gang banger in her native Mexifornia? Her opinion probably cost her a cushy consulting job with the Mets, as she effectively condoned cheating in baseball. ___________ I'm sure Shadowlight will hate this idea, as much as Trevor Bauer does. In this recent rant against Rob Manfred, Bauer brought up something I had forgotten about: In order to cut down on strikeouts, Manfred has proposed moving the pitching mound back to 62 feet. It's been 60 feet, 6 inches for well over 100 years, I suppose? Only a total money hungry jackal, disguised as Commissioner who loves his sport, would ever put forth something so silly and radical. As Tim Kurkjian of ESPN said, once they stop "juicing the ball", the majority of hitters in the league (I say 90% of the Latin players?) will adjust their swings and stop trying to launch the ball into the air once they realize their best, hardest swing will only reach the "warning track". Therefore, instead of trying to hit opposite field HR's every at bat, they'll choke up a bit, simply trying to make contact. Being tougher against steroid use will also help keep strikeouts down for similar reasons. This will also speed up the game, as every 5'6" to 5'10", 160 to 175 pound Latin player won't intentionally foul off a million pitches, fully expecting to get the "right pitch", which they can drive 430 feet out of the park.
