    Buehrle's perfect game. It could be ruined with one at bat, unlike the WS.

    Yeah, AZ kind of has the Sox in a bind now.

    Well that was atrocious.

    Moncada didn't think to go back because he was called safe, so it fundamentally changes the game. Moncada was never given the opportunity to correct it based on umpire error.

    Looks like Tony does as well.

    7/24 Games

    Ramos homer, Kannapolis up 6-0
  8. The continuation is probably worth including. The line about people paying to watch Yermin play is good - it's true, people aren't really there to see Yermin. They're there to see the team as a whole - or Rodon, Lynn, Giolito, Robert, Tim, etc.
  9. Remember when Ozzie and Ozney got so offended that Ozney was drafted in the 22nd round that Ozney didn't sign and he was never drafted again? And how Oney Guillen ragged on Jenks, who famously battled depression and addiction, for crying in the clubhouse, leading to his resignation as a scout? Apples don't fall far from the tree.

    I really should have clarified - when I meant everyone, I meant nationally and amongst people who weren't already SI Yankees stakeholders. I had a bunch of friends around (granted, I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan) that loved it and some bought merch.

    Yeah, the Staten Island Yankees were able to get away with Pizza Rats rebrand - everyone loved it and you can still get that gear. (except reportedly the Yankees, and that reportedly might be part of why they got dumped). Caulfield mentioned the Rocket City Trash Pandas. I'm debating getting a blue "Ballers" jersey because it looks super clean. My brother owns an "Iron Pugs" shirt because that was a great promo. No one cares about the Winston-Salem Dash or Fresno Grizzlies (but everyone loves the Fresno Tacos).

    The Cleveland Guardians

    Spiders - judging by here, r/Baseball, Twitter, and Facebook - was the very, very popular choice by non-Cleveland fans. My friends from Ohio/Cleveland on Facebook joke about the Spiders record / seem indifferent to Guardians. Kyyle's right in that this seems like the safe choice. After reading that Reddit thread, I got admit, Commodores would have been a pretty baller name: https://www.cleveland.com/letters/2021/01/cleveland-commodores-would-tap-into-powerful-battle-of-lake-erie-history.html

    Trade Deadline Thread

    "We're buyers this deadline." GM receives panicked phone call from ownership. "But also sellers."

    The Cleveland Guardians

    Meanwhile, Cleveland fans (at least on Reddit) are relieved that it was anything other than Rockers or Spiders. They wanted Commodores, but are cool with Guardians as a second option.

    Dodgers is because people in Brooklyn used to dodge trolleys. Their name history: Hartfords (they moved from Hartford) Bridegrooms / Grooms (several players got married in one season) Superbas (named after a circus act) Trolley Dodgers, eventually shortened to Dodgers. Reds are named ... for a color. If they picked that name today they be ripped, since it doesn't have big ties to Cincinnati or anything. Rays was a PR move to drop Devil. It's dumb. Cubs was because after their team leader left, they became the Remnants and worst-name-of-all-time, Orphans. They decided a baby animal would be better, so they became Cubs. Philadelphia Phillies would be like having the New York New Yorkers.
