    Jesse IS holy ... he plowed holes often. Some plowing was even consensual, and some didn't even cost money.

    Pissing into the wind right now, with probability looming large of no baseball...but as an afterthought, instead of getting much further along establishing a diluted, weak stream version of the most perfect game there was by instituting the DH, did it cross any of the bargaining minds that a shortened season would be a perfect testbed for really improving the game by using balls and strikes electronic umpires? The umpiring sucks so badly, each season growing worse.
    Also would help with the distancing thing.
    But I guess it's all moot now, as the new covid front reveals itself.
    The Beast was never slain, only waiting for the opportunity it now has been gifted by ignorance and stupidity.

    Brad Penny would’ve been perfect for a shortened season.

    Coulda just done a stay at home mandate countrywide for 4 weeks and no international travel without quarantine and we would have been back to fucking normal in April. But NOOOO, that would be too oppressive.... Every person that fought how serious this thing is, just looks like a collective of the mayor from Jaws.

    Whose the guy who goes into the water knowing there are killer sharks around because its the only way to defeat a Sharknado that will eventually evolve and kill you in your home while you sleep and dream of fins circling around your bed.

    I get people are frustrated, but a year without trivial bullshit could be a good thing. Minor Leaguers can take a guilt free year off to take some community college courses or start learning a trade. There are hiring signs everywhere to replace income for menial and food service jobs at the stadium. Pretentious sports writers might learn some humility now that 100% of the population doesn't give a shit what they have to say instead of just 99%. We'll all get 3 extra hours each evening to build, create, spend time with family, etc.

    No DH though which is kind of stupid. I’d imagine since it’s no DH it will be the traditional standings too. There also doing a runner on second in extras which is fucking dumb

    I don't like the DH at all, but with the type of loaded and deep roster that we have, it would be a nice tool to have.
