Yadier Molina is a Hall of Famer. Not because of this play, obviously, but it’s a good illustration of a couple reasons why.

The 2016 @MLB  Draft is fascinating to look back on, 5 years later. Among the first two rounds — 77 selections — so far the most valuable picks are #64  (Pete Alonso), #59  (Bryan Reynolds), and #66  (Bo Bichette) per WAR on @baseball_ref . @MLBNetworkN @MLBPipeline@Metstwork  Pipeline

NEWS: @MLB  Opening Day is one week from tomorrow, and I cannot wait. @MLBNetwork 

Vaccine incentive for @MLB  fans: @Reds  announce availability of "$10 tickets to fans who show COVID-19 Vaccination Card at the Great American Ball Park ticket windows with at least one shot completed." Offer applies for Monday through Thursday games in April and May. @MLBNetworkNetwork 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is one of the best hitters in baseball right now. One reason to believe he will sustain that status: He is one of only 6 @MLB  players with more walks than strikeouts this season -- and is the youngest of that group. @MLBNetworkN @FAN590 @Sportsnett @MLBStatswork Stats

. @usahockey  plays Italy mere moments from now at #MensWorlds  on @NHLNetwork , so of course I offer this game preview in Italian. Per favore, divertiti. 🇮🇹🇺 @ItalyinDetroit  @ItalyinUS  @niaforg 

Trade news: @NHLNetwork  is acquiring me from @MLBNetwork  for the next couple weeks, as I begin coverage of the @NHL  semifinal series between @CanadiensMTL  and @VegasHockeyNHL . I am so honoured to have this assignment. Can’t wait to be at the rink again @SiriusXMNHL  @usahockey 


Baseball is incredible. Alec Mills wasn’t recruited to the University of Tennessee at Martin. He walked by practice one day and told the coach he was good enough to pitch on the team. A tryout followed. 22nd round pick. Today, he threw a no-hitter for the @Cubs . @MLBNetwork  @MLB

My wife is a doctor. I’m incredibly proud of her. I’m also concerned. This morning she asked me to share this message: “Please stay home. No play dates. No restaurants. Support your local businesses by buying gift cards that you will use later. Please give us a fighting chance.”

BREAKING: Pitchers and catchers report next week. @MLBNetwork  @MLB 

Kim Ng has 3 World Series rings. She made 8 postseason appearances as an executive. She was assistant GM of the #Yankees  and #Dodgers , then spent a decade in the Commissioner’s office. Objectively speaking, she has one of the greatest résumés of any first-time GM in @MLB  history.

Sources: #BlueJays  now are the frontrunners to sign George Springer. @brendonkuhn @RadioVendetta and each have reported tonight that the Jays and Springer have a deal in place pending a physical @MLBNetworkx @MLBam.

Incredible: Yadier Molina will start his 16th straight #OpeningDay  at catcher for the @Cardinals . With that, he breaks a tie with the @Yankees ’ Bill Dickey for the longest streak of #OpeningDay  starts, with a single team, of any catcher in @MLB  history. @MLBNetworkN @Yadimolina04etwork

The @Dodgers  are playing the way everyone thought they would: They have hit the most HR in @MLB  while also posting the Majors' lowest team ERA. This is a great team. @MLBNetworkNetwork
