Seven of the 10 teams in the AL and NL Central Divisions made the playoffs in 2020, but the four months since then have been about little more than the power draining from MLB's Midwest region.
by: Gordon Wittenmyer — NBC Chicago 19h
Spoiler alert: Since baseball’s two Central divisions sent seven of their 10 teams to the playoffs in 2020, the White Sox are having the best winter of the group. As for where the Cubs’ winter ranks …

The title of this one is a reference not only to the Chicago Cubs, but also to the fact that I haven't blogged in a while and figured I should probably set up some kind of work-life balance to try to squeeze something out on a regular basis. Perhaps...

If you want to feel good about baseball today, I have a suggestion. Go look up Adrián Beltré’s @baseball_ref page and marvel at an amazing career. His last 10 years were better than his first 10 (😱)! Then go to YouTube and watch Adrian Beltre funny moments. You’re welcome.Beat Writer / Columnist
Also gets 100K for Comeback. That would be a neat trick for Hand, who was brilliant last year.Could you imagine what would have to happen for him to win a Silver Slugger? Especially if they eventually go to a DH? Should be way more than $50k https://t.co/prJ2b5JOeJBeat Writer / Columnist

RT @patience_malaba: HB1220 makes big changes to the GMA.

League has since denied this characterization (natch), but it was pretty clear to anyone who has followed this situation for the past 12 months. Of course MLB was hoping to add another push to get players back to the table. I knew it within three seconds of seeing the letter.“Basically, the position that the league stated on the call was that they were open to delaying and that the players were not. And that a document like the letter may help push negotiations along & allow what you guys would like, which is a 30-day delay.” https://t.co/svPhiHGeTfBlogger / Podcaster
