One player mic'd up on ESPN "All Access" remarked that one flyout would have been a home run with the '2019 ball'.  Indicates to me there has been a change that the players have noticed.  That's all though.

BigTrain asks the big question.

Almost no talk about the baseball.

And what's going to happen to that team in Boston that cheated in 2018? Is Manfred ever going to decide?

Everyone saw those horrible beatings he took against the BoSox last year; they happened, but he pitched better than that.  At sub-$15, if you can, seems like a decent place to go.

Tanaka's supposedly throwing his nasty splitter again-- Have the seams returned?
