Baseball needs characters again like Goose, Rollie, Mad Hungarian and the Bird.
We've got Andrew Chafin in Chicago. Kind of a poor man's John C. Reilly.

I'm not sure if FOX news carried this story or not. I've been out of the lower 48 for a few days.

I assume they did.

I'm wondering if the millionaire, pampered, idiots who play baseball want me in the stands this year or not.

One knee in the dirt during the anthem and I'm gone again.

We'll see.

Aw.

Such a fragile snowflake.

It absolutely ridiculous we play the national anthem before every sporting event. We're the only country in the world that does it and it needs to end.
Yeah. These are the same people who wanted to overturn the election and declare Martial law.. I'm so sick of the far right radicals hypocrisy when it comes to patriotism..

Should it be played only at the end for the winners like at the Olympics?

Radio app remains an awesome link learned from you on the net. Lots of news on minor leagues starting up May 4 and Cinco de Mayo. AAA, AA, high A, low A. 120 of the 160 cities survived the major restructuring of milb.

Monday’s are off for the minors. Then they have a six-game series with the same team. It’s worth searching. KC radio speaks of their AAA Omaha Storm Chasers and a pretty good starting five rotation. Assignments of players ...

Kopech not in the starting rotation is absolutely criminal. He's a legit cy young candidate.

Walker has pitched fairly well, but he has struggled to pitch efficiently and get past the 5th inning. He also has an injury history and hasn't pitched more than 53 innings since 2017, so I'm taking a wait and see approach with him.

What a cheap win for the Mets. That's a homerun in my book.

This morning they played the Philly announcers play by play of that play. Both said it wasn't an HR, both said it hit the rail..
Two minor-league DHs tomorrow in the majors. Keep the three-batter rule. **** the whiny managers who caused the need for the rule.

Keep the mound visit number rule. **** the managers there also. Make it the 12th inning rule, not the 10th inning rule.

19 games within a division 🆚 6.6 against the other ten teams in their league should be 18 and a perfect 7.0. I’d prefer only seeing Detroit, KC, Min, and CLE 13 times each and seeing the other ten teams like the yanks 9 times each.

Mets fire their hitting coach. That's not the problem, but when your dead last in almost every offensive category I guess you got to do something..

Here’s an impressive level of Cub fan dedication.

Not only is he teaching his child the basics of behavior at a Cub game, he’s brought her (him?) to the bleachers- right field (where people still keep score on scorecards) but he’s also wearing a KYLE FARNSWORTH jersey- which is a level of dedication two standard deviations from the mean.
