Fans are Fine With Baseball’s Pace as Long as They’re At the Game

Jayson Stark wrote a great piece about baseball’s pace of play issues and it’s the inspiration for this possibly shitty post. Jayson was then canned along with about 100 other ESPN employees, so hopefully he takes his talents elsewhere soon enough to give me more inspiration. But to summarize the very detailed and well-written article,…

Alright White Sox, That’s Enough of This Winning Crap

Hey, you. White Sox. Knock it off. Cut this winning shit out. If you haven’t realized it yet, your goal for this season is to be as bad as possible. If you’re not, this whole rebuild thing isn’t going to go so well. Just look to the North. You need top five drafts picks in…

Michael Kopech Showing Why He Has a Long Way To Go

Michael Kopech is striking out 14 batters per nine innings in double-A ball this season for the Birmingham Barons.

Of Course Madison Bumgarner Got Hurt Riding a Dirt Bike

Madison Bumgarner was placed on the 10-day DL for some bruised ribs and a left shoulder sprain. He apparently hurt himself while riding a dirt bike, because he’s Madinson Bumgarner and that’s the sort of thing he does on off days. What throws me off is that he says it wasn’t some sort of “crazy…

What Does Kyle Hendricks Need To Do To Suck Less?

Anyone who thinks Kyle Hendricks’ 2016 campaign was a fluke is a grade-A moron. Anyone who expected Kyle Hendricks’ 2016 campaign to become his norm is brain-dead optimist. Anyone who expected Hendricks to fall somewhere in between his past two seasons of production is probably right, but not looking good so far in 2017. Hendricks…
