    The baseball thread

    Baseball is often called "America's greatest pastime." In the 21st century, spending several hours a day on cellphones and other mobile devices seems to be the greatest pastime. But I digress. This thread is devoted to baseball: the games, the teams, the players, the feats, the records and anything else baseball-related. This is not my personal blog. I'm starting this thread in the hope that other baseball fans participate by sharing stories and opinions. Play ball!

    Six thousand, one hundred five home runs were hit in the Major Leagues in 2017. That is a record. Well.......

    MLB insists the baseball is not juiced but has a committee studying it anyway
    Many players said this year the baseball itself is different than in previous years.

    Denton "Cy" Young pitched for five different teams and won a record 511 games in his 22-year career (1890-1911.) A year after he died in 1955, the annual Cy Young Award was established to honor the best pitcher in the major leagues. Since 1967, the best pitcher in each league is honored. Here are the award winners for 2017:

    Nationals' Max Scherzter, Indians' Corey Kluber win Cy Young Awards by wide margins
