We couldn’t be more pleased with the unanimous votes for RoY and MVP. Not so thrilled with the owners voting unanimously to send Oakland’s team to Vegas. Props to Gunnar for his sexy defense and leading all rookies in HRs, and to Corbin for being the first Diamondback to win RoY, and the first ever to win with 25HRs and 50SBs. Shohei’s second MVP win was a surprise to no one and Miggy’s enthusiasm for Ronald’s title led us down a “we’re not sure he should say that in front of children” path. Still not sure, but we’re distracted by Acuña’s immediate and remarkable LVBP debut moments after the announcement. Dusty has us re-evaluating Ron’s past as he takes over the LAAs. New Mets manager Carlos Mendoza thanks his wife for sacrificing her career for his. There are more than 60 new free agents as of Friday’s non-tender deadline, and one new one this week as Yoshinobu Yamamoto season kicks off. Fisher may have gotten his As move past the owners, but still has to contend with Nevada’s teachers and Oakland’s mayor. MLB picks markets over justice as it hands the 2025 ASG back to ATL. No riding the coattails of the successful pitch clock – tinkering has already begun. The top 30 girls playing HS ball came together for the Breakthrough Series last weekend, and this week brings the 2nd All American Women's Baseball Classic. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
