    Oh boy here we go again another pro sports lockout/strike whatever you want to call it. The players are all millionaires even the crappy ones after a season or two. The owners are all billionaires. The public always says I'm done with baseball, football, etc when they go out on strike but they always come back. Google says there are 614 billionares in the USA as of 2020. Google says there are 151 pro sports teams in North America. Minus a few indoor soccer teams those owners are all billionares. That's almost a 1/3 of all billionaires in the US are pro sports team owners. They have enormus power to go with the wealth. Maybe more than government at times. Many of the other billionares feed off of pro sports like media, gambling,alcohol, travel,and food etc. I have no respect for either side anymore. The players have elevated themselves since the reserve clause was eliminated in pro sports more than 50 years now. Some high picks make in the minors today what Reggie made with the Yankees in the 70s. If your on a practice/taxi squad in the NFL you make like 10k a week or more during the season.I say fuck all of them and go fishing.

    Bit of a groundswell of support here in NORCAL for Dusty Baker to get a ring as a Manager. Most know he was the SF Giants Manager for 10 years, and just missed a ring in 2002. Before his playing days, he was also a High School Legend in Sacramento at Del Campo High School, then on to American River College.

    Since most here in Northern California have no rooting interest in either the Astros or Braves, this has been the local discussion on talk radio.

    The Astros cheated like no team in any of our lifetimes, and they got away with it with minimal penalties.

    F them. Not sure how anyone can cheer for the Astros, feel good story about Dusty Baker be damned.

    F Dusty Baker.

    I have no respect for anybody who cheers for the Astros. I donít understand how you can cheer for that team. I donít care if thatís your team, you cannot cheer for a team that does that.

    Thereís a couple guys from this site Iím friends with on Facebook who keep posting Astro stuff and theyíre all happy and itís just bizarre. Itís hard to keep my mouth shut. I just donít know how you openly condone that and continue to wank about them with all those guys still on the team.

    Unfortunately for all of us, the Astros did a great job "RELOADING" after they lost the World Series in 2019. Really only the core group of Correa, Altuve, Bregman and Guriell are playing in this World Series. Catcher, all 3 OF and DH are new. Pitching staff is also a complete turn over, after the injuries to McCullers and Verlander.

    They just look so strong, I hope the Braves can pull of some kind of miracle.

    fyi I still root against Penn Pedo St too even if all the players and coaches and AD are new too. Wrong is wrong. Manfred might as well be Graham Spanier and Tim Curley

    Oh I donít think anybodyís upset I just think you should realize that when you post stuff about the Astros you are not going to get a positive response unless youíre an Astros fan. That team is pretty much hated universally at this point. And with good reason.

    Dusty Baker chose to be a part of that so yeah heís going to get his share of shit too. But I didnít like him before that. And he spent most of his career as a Dodger and I still canít stand him.

    not sure where they come up with 151. Just between MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL you have 124. MLS i'm showing has 27 - so there's 151 I guess. Must not be counting WNBA and then all the minor leagues (those guys are professionals, too!) for baseball, hockey and basketball
