    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    At this point it's more about the real estate and broadcasting opportunities that come along with owning a team than the actual sporting side of it.

    Yeah, if we were talking about vendors and event staff I'd be singing a different tune. The only thing that has me in the players corner at all is athletics and entertainment are pretty much the only way to claw yourself out of abject poverty.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    This is where I'm at. I'm going to side with labor on principle, but this is a fight that is so inconsequential to labor issues that actually, y'know, matter and affect people that are legitimately disadvantaged so it's more of a just figure it out thing for me.

    Like half the owners are completely uninterested in baseball and are more concerned about the real estate venture their teams represent. What I’m getting at is Manfred is bad for baseball because the people who hired him don’t give a shit about it.

    There seems to be a pretty popular opinion that Rob manfred is terrible at his job. his job is to be a lightning rod for the owners. He’s incredibly good at it.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Strikes and Lockouts are both different kinds of work stoppages though. Double edit: there seem to be competeing definitions. So idk whatever
  8. I went to the only home NCAA Tournament game in it's history, at one of the livelier buildings in the sport where the home team won on a buzzer beater. That crowd paled in comparison to Game 3.
  9. Engel, Leury or Vaughn against Pressley in the 9th
  10. Correa and Altuve are going to give an aneurysm
  11. Meh, Id rather use Sheets in a better spot than 1 out nobody on in the 6th
  12. mentioned this before but I think he was trying to say he wants to be able to grow Yoan Moncada's but my immediate reaction was 'oh no'
  13. It was a half baked shitty hot take. No one was offended
  14. I think what he was trying to say was give me a field where I could grow Moncada's but the execution was uhhhhhhhh not good
