    A 32 year old Journeyman can be paid 10 million dollars to play a kids game. Meanwhile a family of four would have to take out a loan just to see a major league game. Big money for the players and the owners.

    This guy is awesome, even though he plays for the goddamn Angels.

    Regular season MLB is a grind, but the post-season is great. Looking forward to the next month, particularly if Kershaw can help take the Dodgers deep.

    I'm shorting a shitload of Farmer John stock. Those people are done once Vin hangs it up.

    (Yes I know Hormel owns them. No I'm not really shorting Hormel).

    I watched some of playoffs/World Series last year, after several years of not watching baseball at all.

    I was shocked at how ethnic it's become. They're an overly demonstrative peoples, and I don't really care for it.

    I'm with Adam Jones on this comment, but make no mistake, ALL sports are this no? There is certainly this sentiment among a large contingent of black NFL players. Look at the owners boxes. Just a bunch of fucking white guys with cash that make money off of their minority hired hands (VERY expensive hired hands). I'm not sure how we cross the line into having a more diverse ownership group in all the sports and it's quite possible that many of the rich minorities that are out there just don't give enough of a fuck about sports on that level (and I can't blame them...You don't get in to make money, you get in to win. If you have ideas about only wanting to make money you end up being Jerry Jones or the Pittsburgh Pirates, futile and on the golf course nearly after the season is over, if not after one play-in game).

    I love baseball, but I'm getting very tired of the economics of the game and how the Commish shows up in Texas to rally for the Rangers and their "need" for public money to finance a new stadium because the Rangers - who have won a SHIT TON of games in the last 5 years as well as division titles AND two World Series appearances - are playing at a "disadvantage". Is Manfred retarded? Public money for sports should be WAY off the table and the Rangers are not at a disadvantage in any way. They're doing fine. I get it - it's hot down there. Maybe they should have thought about that in 1992-94 when the new stadium they currently use was being developed and built.

    I'm looking forward to the playoffs, but also hate the current playoff system. It's the "everyone is a winner" format where we end up getting shitty-turned-lucky teams in the World Series (and here's looking at you New York Mets).

    To get off the political trip for a moment, here is my prediction for the postseason:

    AL East: Red Sox
    AL Central: Indians
    AL West: Rangers

    AL Wild Card 1: Orioles
    AL Wild Card 2: Astros

    NL East: Nats
    NL Central: Cubs
    NL West: Dodgers

    NL Wild Card 1: Mets
    NL Wild Card 2: Giants

    AL Wild Card winner: Orioles
    NL Wild Card winner: Giants

    AL Division Series 1: Rangers vs Orioles >> RANGERS
    AL Division Series 2: Red Sox vs Indians>> RED SOX

    NL Division Series 1: Cubs vs Giants>> CUBS
    NL Division Series 1: Nats vs Dodgers>> DODGERS

    ALCS: Rangers vs Red Sox>> RED SOX
    NLCS: Cubs vs Dodgers>> CUBS

    World Series: Red Sox vs Cubs>> RED SOX

    2016 World Champion Red Sox

    I didn't think that this would be possible before the year started, but yeah, they are pulling it all together (and I still only half believe it and it's not because I believe in them per se, but I just believe that the Cubs will find a way to royally fuck this up somehow).
