Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Jeez. Awful news.
Awful stuff. How many DR ballpayers have been killed thus way. I feel like more than a hand count.

Yeah, it feels like it's 1 or 2 every offseason.

Apparently, all it took for baseball to be very good for me was every other facet of civilization collapsing.

No, that's dumb as fuck. You want games to move faster, fucking enforce the pitch clock. Other than that, baseball is fine as is.

Pedro Baez is still pitching the 2016 NLCS.

I honestly don't see anything wrong with the rules or play of the game. Instead of changing the game itself to somehow make it appealing, make it more appealing by having more day games, getting rid of restrictive blackouts, make it cheaper for young fans to go. Build an appreciation for the game and make it easier to support it.

This us ultimately the main problem. And I'm literally only for a pitch clock in extreme cases, like Pedro Baez, who deserves the death penalty.

It takes a lot of capital and connections to get into pro sports ownership, but once you're in, it's a lucrative-as-fuck racket.
