On the bright side, I'm digging the Reds' Palm Beach throwbacks!

I don't know where this feeling came from, but I thought it was great – and the foul territory didn't seem much more than Oakland. Anyway, I'm sure the sold-out crowd there would've disagreed, as well.

Also, since when did more XBHs equal bad baseball?

Shame. If past cases are any indication, the most likely causes are probably either a heart condition or drugs.

The St. Lucie Mets started a fire outside the ballpark with their Independence Day fireworks.

Apparently the Mets' organizational ineptitude is also developed in the farm system...

All 5 teams in the NL Central are separated by less than 5 games in the standings. And frankly, these teams are all looking rather mediocre this year.

Okay what the fuck is wrong with the Yankees, is it the Fenway curse or what, because they are getting creamed by the Red Sox. Yesterday they lost 19-3 and now they're down 7-0. The last two series against the RS, the Yankees won, but they were interesting, especially the London Series when both teams were running up the scores.

Your $218 million team is 30 games over .500, it will be ok.

Agreed. You win some, you lose some. Unless this turns into a long losing streak, it won't be much of an issue.

Chicago has a new independent team, called the Chicago Dogs, playing out by O'Hare. I need to check them out.
