    It’s almost as if sports leagues don’t function the same as other industries and organizations because they are legally sanctioned monopolies.

    But the idea of drafts in American sports are so baked into cultural norms that I’m not going to waste a bunch of time and energy arguing with people who won’t ever change their minds. I’ve heard all of the arguments and just fundamentally disagree/ don’t find any of them compelling.

    Some fan just rushed the field in Atlanta. I hate that the broadcasts dont show it, because the announcers made it seem like he got absolutely lit up against the back stop. I hope a video of it pops up.

    edit - that was quick

    For some reason the Cardinals put in Jordan Hicks halfway through an inning last night to face Touki Toussaint (pitcher) and he proceeded to make Harrison Bader work and turned around one of his fastballs deep to the warning track.

    Imagine missing out on that excitement in an AL game
