    You're inventing this idea that the rule disproportionately affects black people or target black people. It doesn't. It affects whites as much or more.

    it’s such an obvious program to repeat, it’s fairly cheap, should be mandatory that every team have three cities they have programs in

    For example White Sox: Chicago, Fort Wayne, Louisville

    Indians: Cleveland, Akron, Huntington

    etc

    he literally used a racial slur last august (which he clearly uses regularly in conversation with friends considering how autocorrect works). he’s still a racist pos he just is better with his performative wokeness now to counter it

    If a pitcher can change speeds, every hitter is helpless, limited by human vision.

    “Except,” Maddux said, “for that [expletive] Tony Gwynn.”

    Cooperstown will forever be a hall of shame until Buck is inducted. Absolute legend, absolute class. Cooperstown did their Negroes league induction and accepted 16 players, Buck didn’t make the cut and was told he’d never be in the HoF. Heartbroken he took the stage to give this speech, to recognize his former teammates. Like he did his whole life, Buck nailed it. Unfortunately I was never lucky enough to meet Buck, but I have been fortunate enough to meet Mr Bob Kendrick many times. You can’t leave a conversation with him without a beating heart, a smile on your face, and a tear in your eye. I’m sure Buck looks down and flashes that incredible smile every time Mr Kendrick tells a story about himself, or Satch, or Jackie, or Cool Papa Bell, or Gibson.






    Just a beautiful human



    Mr Kendrick says it better than I ever could



    Each spring we watch Ken Burns baseball, all 18+ hours, and there is always 2 minutes that will forever bring tears to my eyes

    Was just watching videos of him earlier this week. Such a joy just to listen to him tell stories. I don’t even know how good of a player he was but he should be in the HOF just for his stories. His story of hearing Ruth, Gibson, and then Bo taking BP is great. I could listen to his stories for hours.

    Does Roberto Ramos still belong to the Rockies? It’s a weird case because he’s like 25, now that they need a DH could he leave Korea if they offer a contract or is he locked in there for the year?
