Teams can have solid starting pitching, strong middle relief and a potent offense, but if they don’t have a closer waiting in the bullpen to finish off games, wins won’t be easy to come by. And while not every club has an Aroldis Chapman or Kenley...

This is good for the game of baseball. This conversation is long overdue but it’s great that we’re talking about taking better care of minor leaguers. I hope they get a seat at the bargaining table to participate in it and have their voices heard.MLB suggested sweeping changes to the minor leagues, including a potentially significant increase in salaries, better living conditions and improved travel, during a bargaining session with the group that oversees the minors, sources tell ESPN.

@jay_jaffe @BMcCarthy32 @ithrow88 But I think that if a pitcher is ready before the 2:00 clock (like maybe he took the bullpen cart) or doesn’t need all 8 warm up pitches on the game mound he should be able to say he’s ready and we can start the inning sooner (rn we still have to wait for commercial break)Player
@jay_jaffe @BMcCarthy32 @ithrow88 Nah we need those. Relievers esp need at least a few to get used to the game mound after it’s been chewed up by the starters and bc bullpen mounds can be very different. Plus sometimes you have to warm up so fast that you need those 8 to get fully ready.Player
