Remember, nothing is alleged to--or can have--happened to all of MLB over some one or two seasons: the claim is that PEDs were being used at a slowly but steadily increasing rate (and thus "distorting records") from very roughly 1980 through the present. Were that so, or anything like it, we would expect to see a clear long-term uptrend during this period. But we don't: we see a nearly flat line that, if anything, slopes slightly down. The "boost" just isn't there. But that doesn't seem to stop anyone from talking about it.

It’s been a long, long time since opening day was actually opening day for everyone. In the past, there’s been a national game the night before the big slate, and usually some teams that don’t get going until the day after most everyone else’s opening day, for some reason, and sometimes even an international series in Australia or Japan a week before the rest of the league takes the field. Baseball doesn’t need a slow rollout; it’s a long season with a lot of games, and it’s much more fun when every team and every fanbase gets to partake in the acute excitement of opening day on the same day–a real opening day.

Kyle Crick is the most experienced player acquired in the McCutchen deal, a 25-year-old reliever dealt by a Giants organization that needs pitching. The Pirates also got a Class A outfielder, Bryan Reynolds, ranked by Baseball America as the No. 5 prospect from what is regarded as one of MLB’s worst farm systems. Similarly, some rival evaluators view the return Pittsburgh got from Houston for Cole as mediocre, a collection of decent young players who probably can’t significantly boost the Pirates’ playoff chances but might be serviceable big leaguers immediately.

In 2002, among the 188 players in the Hall, a player was just about as likely to enter through a selection committee (93 such players) as by election from the writers (95). But since then, entry for a player to the Hall has been almost exclusively through the writers, by a 20-3 count.  The only three players in the past 12 years to gain enshrinement by a committee vote have been Joe Gordon, Deacon White and Ron Santo. Enshrined managers, executives and umpires have outnumbered players from those committees, 13-3.  Here's another way to look at how difficult it has been recently for players to get into the Hall after they fell off the writers' ballot: Over the past 12 years, only one such player who debuted after 1938 has made it to the Hall of Fame (Santo).
