    Yes, I believe it. If I'm wrong, then I'm wromg. I hope I am for the kids, but the end has a deeply rooted foothold, and inevitable as sunrise in the east. Not saying this will happen next week, but in a few decades. Coupled with the actual planet going through changes. we barely can fathom, the combo is insurmountable.
    The organism will reign supreme, and he resulting economic domino disasters will render civilization moot.
    We will be killing each other for fucking water eventually.
    I can thought of as the guy with the tin foil hat, it bothers me not.
    But I wonder how all important quarantines and social distancing, along with the " I refuse to give up my rights" crew will fare in a dystopian wasteland. Tilting at windmills ?
    All the political drivel and rallying slogans from everywhere will amount to a hill of beans, as Rick Blaine said a long time ago.
    It will all end with a whimper.
    So, Go Dodgers!
    End of transmission.

    The proposed format feels more like a circus than baseball. I’m not as starved as most people are for the return of the sport that just months ago ruled that a team cheating to beat the Dodgers to win a WS gets a tiny slap on the wrist. The biggest virus affecting baseball is not the coronavirus, it’s that gap toothed asshole they elected as commissioner.

    Welp... I'm no ironclad news source... but I went by campus today and saw the head baseball coach meeting with a coach from the Dodger minor league system.

    The guy said & I quote..."I was told that the 40-man roster +10 will report to Camelback on May 25."

    FWIW, lads.

    There are disaster movies where the party of adventurers come to an older guy set in his ways who helps them but at some point they have to keep moving and the old man doesn't want to go?
    The old man stays back and always ends up getting overrun by the zombies when he could have just gone along with the younger adventurers to a brave new world up on the mountaintops.
    So i guess what im trying to say is....

    Yeah, sure Rube. Thanks for the advice, Chixlub.
    It's like the last scene in every War of the Worlds movie/remake...only this time we're the Martians.
    I can see your suction cup fingertips in my mind's eye so readily.
    Btw, I ain't running anywhere.
    When the zombies come for me, make sure you wear a Dodger sbirt.
    I know you'll be in front of them, and I'm blowing your cabeza off first.
    This old man ain't going quietly, you can bet on that shit... if you can find a bookmaker still alive.

    That song is about the Chivington Massacre. I use that tune to teach about that event. The now defunct Rocky Mountain News finally admitted that they covered up for that massacre. It took them until 2000 before they copped to it. Pretty good song; pretty awful story.

    I never liked Iron Maiden growing up. I could not stand the style of singing.
    The lyrics and how they were delivered sounded corny as hell to me compared to Megadeath and Metallica.
    I could never get into them because of it.
    But a lot of my friends in school liked them... or their shirts.

    Price laying $1k on every minor league player in the Dodgers minors is freaking righteous

    Too bad he is the rare exception rather than the rule.

    There was a report that in the MLBPA proposal, they wanted 2 more teams added to the league by a certain date. Only one reporter that I saw mentioned this and their follow up was that owners were all for it. Basically the players said no more waiting for Tampa or Oakland to get their shit together. Having season long interleague play is dumb and I am very against mismatched schedules in the sport, so I hope that we get 2 new orgs by 2024 at the absolute latest.

    So there would be two 6-team divisions? Or would this be in conjunction with shaking up the divisions so there are 8 divisions w/ 4 teams each?
