Yeah, he could simply quote Shelley poetry. But the writers still get the opportunity to ask him questions.

They haven't explicitly ruled on that situation. The rules only explicitly say that a player that has been *removed* prior to the suspension and doesn't address players traded to the other team (and in the above example, Minor was never removed from the game).

Remember, any situation in which he's the only relief pitcher for the new team (and the new team wins) and the starter doesn't go five innings, he gets the win.

There's some writer out there right now that's putting together a piece about how Andrew Luck retiring is evidence that baseball is dying somehow.

So...uh...you should probably downgrade Luck in your fantasy draft. I have nothing else because my brain is now broken.

Andrew Luck already has met with Colts’ owner Jim Irsay to tell him that he is retiring, per source.

Also, Jose and Ozzie Canseco aren't actually brothers; Ozzie Canseco was simply Jose from a universe in which baseball was never invented. Plus, Sonny Bono was just Ultimate Marvel Billy Martin.

The starting pitcher must go 5 innings rule makes it possible without the official scoring having some leeway. Honestly, if the starting pitcher doesn't go 5 innings and is *still* the most effective pitcher, they should be eligible for a win in the scorer's discretion scenario.

Remember, baseball doesn't care about temporal anomalies like they do episodes of Star Trek. Juan Soto's official debut was 5/20/18 and his first career home run was officially on 5/15/18.

Remember, if he's the ONLY relief pitcher on the new team and the starting pitcher doesn't go five innings, he always gets the win even if the win isn't earned when he's physically on the mound.

I need to sit and map out the possibilities. Think a game in which Joe Schmo is the starting pitcher and losing and on the new team, he's the most effective pitcher on the second team in relief (and the starter did not go five innings).

I do not believe so. Closest I believe was Hanrahan, who was still the pitcher of record in a game and he was traded for Nyjer Morgan, who scored the winning run to get Hanrahan his win.
