    IMO talk of faked injuries is much ado about nothing. Won't happen. If I'm wrong, which I doubt, I like Stu's solution.

    William Hill sportsbook set an over/under of 83.5 for Houston hit-by-pitches in 2020, a number that would rank as one of the 10 highest in the previous five seasons.

    Giants are having a reunion of the 2010 WS Champions but have disinvited Aubrey Huff because of his tweets....what did Huff have to say?

    "Quite frankly, shocked. Disappointed. If it wasn't for me, they wouldn't be having a reunion," Huff told The Athletic about the Giants' decision. "But if they want to stick with their politically correct, progressive bulls---, that's fine."

    Giants bar Huff from '10 WS reunion over tweets

    A lot of kids leagues across the country use the names of MLB teams. I saw an article where some LL team in Pennsylvania dropped the Astros name. I'll bet that they won't be the only ones.

    oh no, 2 little leagues in California banned the Astros back when this first broke out. The Commissioner totally pissed this thing down his leg.

    Pretty funny that Madison Bumgarner has been doing rodeo for a few years under an assumed name. I don't know how he was able to pull it off though. Surely people recognized him or his friends and family knew he was doing it, probably some teammates as well. Seems like somebody would have leaked it. He got found out from a Facebook post. When I first read about it I thought bull riding, bronco busting, etc...but it turns out he's a roper, not exactly in the same category as those others in terms of injuries. o_O
