    I read somewhere, hell may have been here, that that deal wasn't actually that bad for the mets. It must be nice going to your mailbox once a year and be set til next July, or should be anyway

    Probably from me. The bonilla deal was just the Mets selling him an 8% annuity (which was market rate at the time)

    Apparently some Republicans are setting up an attack on MLB’s antitrust exemption. I hope MLB stepped in it this time. Funny how they don’t care what the laws of communities are when they are taking their money to fund new stadiums every twenty years. I bet they could find laws they object to in all 16 states plus the District of Columbia, they do business in, plus don’t even get started with the damn Canadians! Just total bullshit.

    I doubt they will, but they should go to another red state--Rangers have a new stadium to show off.

    I fuckin' hate that we're talking politics in this thread. Thanks MLB.

    Can't play an All Star game in ATL over voting laws that are basically in line with a number of other states and doesn't prevent anyone from casting a ballot, but they'll play an exhibition game in front of a dictator on their soil in Cuba.

    Makes total sense.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    There is some irony in being able to validate playing in Cuba, but not being able to play in Atlanta Georgia.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    they are all so damn clueless

    anyway, can't wait to get a few weeks in to see how these teams really are. As much as I'd love to see a winning Orioles team I'd be shocked if they can keep it up. And the Astros - has anybody checked their trashcans?

    Just looking forward to sitting on my porch later and finally listening to some Marlins.

    Did anyone stay up for the Sunday night (West Coast) game on ESPN? Angles v White Sox.

    Ohtani put on a SHOW. Threw over 100 MPH in the first, then hit a HR with over 100mph Exit velocity.....lol... Ran into a weird 5th, wild pitch for a run, then a dropped 3rd strike that led to 2 runs. Wild all the way around.



    The game ended on a walk off HR in bottom of the 9th.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he will boycott Major League Baseball events after the league pulled its All-Star Game from Georgia

    Abbott also said Monday he was declining to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Texas Rangers' home opening game.

    Trump is telling everyone to boycott MLB now. Abbott is probably just trying to do right by Trump.

    But, with no restrictions on capacity, I would think Abbott would want people to embrace their new stadium not boycott the sport right now.

    Cancel culture begets more cancel culture. I don't agree with what MLB did with the all star game, but I'm not going to stop watching the game.

    Ugh. Can politics just stop fucking everything up for once? We need sports more than ever and they....just...can't...help...themselves. I know my sports viewing habits have changed a lot since the pandemic started. I rarely watch live sports anymore. I've embraced other hobbies that provide more of an escape which is what I crave in my downtime.

    I actually agree with him. Now granted Iím a Georgia native so possibly a little biased but it was a gross over reaction by MLB. My favorite part was them speaking for hank Aaron and saying heíd approve of it. And seeing how I have 4 tickets to the all star game, Manfred can go fuck himself. And Iím seriously tempted to send MLB a bill for it.
