Manfred denies MLB intentionally juices baseballs

American League starting pitcher Justin Verlander of the Houston Astros address the media at the All Star media day in Cleveland on Monday

Until the Major League Baseball comes out and admits to juicing balls or a conducted study proves it, let the speculation continue.

With the rates of home runs and offensive production increasing in the Major League Baseball year-by-year, Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander recently opened up to ESPN's Jeff Passan about why he believes this is happening.

Rob Manfred, MLB commissioner, stated his intention to pursue a move into esports earlier this year after seeing the National Football League (NFL), National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Hockey League (NHL) all steal a march in the sector. "If you sat in owners meeting and listen to people on how the game is played, that is not a sentiment of owners for whom I work", Manfred said. The Astros starting pitcher called the current baseballs, "a f--ing joke", claiming Manfred worked with Rawlings to increase offensive production. If any other $40 billion company bought out a $400 million company and the product changed dramatically, it's not a guess as to what happened. "I don't know what he's thinking there, maybe that's a personal view as opposed to the MLBPA's view, I don't know, but we've never heard that from him". Manfred - the first time he came in, what'd he say? "What we need to be on the baseball issue is transparent and forward-looking", Manfred said.

"The ball suddenly changed and I don't know why", Clark said. "It's not coincidence. We're not idiots".

Verlander weighed in on the baseball juicing question after speaking on an All-Star Game panel on Monday, ESPN reported.

As a team, the Pirates remain near the bottom of the majors in home runs, sitting 26th this season with 98 after finishing 25th, 29th, 26th and 23rd the previous four seasons.

CannTrust broke rules, grew in unlicensed rooms
CannTrust stock dropped nearly 17 per cent at $5.38 in Canadian trade this morning. Health Canada said the company has 10 days to respond to the inspection report.

"Yes. 100 percent. They've been using juiced balls in the Home Run Derby forever".

By "less drag", Manfred pointed to a recent scientific report on the manufacture of balls that found that if the "pill" inside the ball is not perfectly centered, the wobble of the ball generates drag as it flies through the air.

He does raise some great points, and it's fair to wonder if the balls really are being juiced. As always, we will keep you posted. There is no desire on the part of ownership to increase the number of home runs in the game.

"Limiting and restricting the opportunities of entry, I'll stand here-and I did at the bargaining table-suggesting that I'd like to remove all of it", Clark said.

"The game has changed", Clark said.

"I'm not going to respond specifically".
