I read the article today. It makes sense, but who knows, all these guys are taking PED's, so they're getting more jacked too.

Someone should take a ball from a few years ago and one from the home run derby and run some tests. Then you would know for sure if changes have been made.

Excures, excuses. Gerrit Cole did not give up any home runs to LAA.

When red sucks played yanks in London, you could not bet the over/under in Vegas.

The plan was to have an extremely high score game (17-13) to make mlb ďsomehowĒ less boring than soccer to convince them euros.

That one was rigged as well. Sadly, its all about the money nowadays. NOTHING else matters. Nothing.

Nahhhh. If they wanna use a walker by 40, let them all juice. The McGuire/Sosa battle was awesome. If not, make everyone pee in a cup on the regular. Too much skepticism. Clear it all up once and for all. You can take this, not this.

The juiced baseball theory has been around for a few years now, he is just the latest, and highest profile pitcher, to say something.

Some people are suggesting that the stitches are fractionally lower profile than they used to be, which limits the amount of spin pitchers can get on their pitches, and also makes the ball travel farther when hit.

Tiga Woods now plays with a ball containing 331 dimples instead of his usual 336

He won the Masters with that

It's not cheating if both teams played with the same balls. It gives the advantage to the batter but that's it. So it's not cheating and it's not rigged. Play ball!

Itís pretty obvious if you look at the numbers of homeruns overall compared to other years. The kicker is they switched the ball in AAA to the major league ball from last year and this year and HR are up almost 50% so yes itís the ball. All other levels of pro ball are using the old ball and numbers are the same.

I don't any issues here if the ball "juiced" as long as the entire league is using identical baseballs. I would rather see a few more home runs then have to sit though long, low scoring games.

I think the issue is that home runs are not balls in play. I think people think to make the game more exciting more plays should be made. Meaning balls that can have a play made on it but todayís game is strike out or home run. They are on pace for 500 more home runs than the record thatís ridiculous.

He just found a way around the juiced balls. Strike out the side. What did the last at bat have in his ear?

No opinion but would listen to what Nolan had to say.
