    Another factor I forgot to mention is Rose did it without DH and recovery drugs, so there is certainly room for improvement.

    I think the first sign of Bruce doing well and he will be traded... Dipoto is a trade machine! He completed a trade recently while getting a lung surgery.

    I open the ESPN app today and see the story headline "Milos Mikolas open to longterm deal with Cardinals." ...well no ****, he's 30 and just spent several years in Japan, I can't imagine he would turn down long term security. This is the reason I hate slow off season FA signings, I have to read something like that, that has no right being a story unless I was reading Duh Magazine, instead of reading about who's signing where, it's simply a result of bored writers.

    A funny one I read was "Machado thinking about meeting with Padres" holy sht, he is that lazy?! Its Feb and he hasn't even met with 1 of the 3 teams that could possibly sign him.

    He couldn't be bothered to run 90 feet in the playoffs, you think he's got the energy to fly across the country?!

    This thinking is probably the best so far.

    I tried something similar at work with a guy who was screaming "the owners are colluding!" So I work retail and I told him look at our business, it makes sense that the CEO makes more money than us, he's making all the decisions and ultimately the responsibility of a company and call it half a million workers rely on good decisions. If I'm a GM or an owner I'm not comfortable betting on an athlete staying at the top of his profession for 10 years and staking my job to it.
    Then he says "it's not fair the owners make way more money" so I told him the owners make more money in ANY job field, if players don't like it certainly a few could retire early, form an ownership pact and buy a team. I'm willing to bet a huge amount of money that Bryce Harper as an owner isnt paying 300mil over 10 years to anyone because he knows it's almost impossible to live up to.
    It's not collusion, owners/GM's just finally aren't being dumbasses.

    Yeah, and I think another big factor not mentioned is not only GMs are getting smarter but fans are getting smarter too. You can't take an Arod in 2019 and put him on a team with shtty pitching and hope fans pack the stadium. People know all your flexibility to round out the roster is gone... they would rather you suck for high draft picks if your'e going to suck anyways.

    oh, and 2000 Arod is waaaaay better than Harper/Machado. The guy was a middle infield Mike Trout.

    Rose turns 78 in April. There's no way he'll live to see it.

    Altuve is the only current player with a shot, with four 200-hit seasons and 1,400 hits in eight years, and he's still almost 3,000 hits away from Rose's record. That's insane.
    Not gonna happen.

    No one will ever catch Roses 4,256. The game has changed too much. You have to really love the game and want to play that long and have the talent in the first place. Most are in it for the money (understandably).

    Yeah he was so fast as a young guy in Japan. 20 year old Ichiro almost ran like a deer, where there is a calf "bounce" that propels him forward. I wonder how much quicker he was at the start of his Japan career than over here as a 27y/o rookie.

    Anyone who wants to break such a record is going to have to suck for a while. iirc Petes last 6 (six!) years of baseball netted a negative WAR. There is no I in team, but there's 2 in hit king!
