Quote from: L K on December 07, 2022, 07:52:54 AMSo MLB was likely juicing the ball for Yankees games. Cool stuffAlso Judge stays with the Yankees - 9 years for 360 million

The testimony from the players is, for sure, worthwhile. I still can't look at the Yankees season though and see much in the way of any sort of outcome that would make a juiced ball a plausible explanation(again, outside of Aaron Judge just generally having a very good season). To use an analogy, it feels like finding a smoking gun but having no dead body. I fully buy that MLB may have used different baseballs in the season, as the article points out they've done that before, but I'm not even sure I see a good hypothetical as to why they'd rig Yankee games specifically.
Quote from: L K on December 07, 2022, 02:35:35 PMI mean the good hypothetical is the same reason Selig ignored steroids with Sosa/McGuire...and then Bonds until it became painfully absurd how much his body changed...ratings. I don't buy he was doing it to help the Yankees win games, but I do certainly buy that MLB would do it to have the story of Judge breaking a record. Which I think takes nothing away from Judge's season itself.
