So apparently Nike is determined to have the City Connect jerseys make you lose your eyesight, because if you don't gouge your own eyes out then Nike will just rob you blind.

For reference, the retail price on Fanatics/MLB Shop for an authentic Red Sox home or road jersey including player name/number is $90-$110 less than a blank City Connect jersey...

For that kind of money it should come with a blow job from a north end hooker

While I was looking up those prices I noticed that the replica jerseys now go for $135.

It's the exact same damn jersey as the Majestic replicas that retailed for $120, they're literally charging you $15 for the mark of the beast Nike logo.

Get your scorecards out, ladies and gentlemen:

Toronto will play their home games at their AAA affiliate Buffalo Bisons' ballpark due to the rona.

The Bisons will decamp to Trenton (now in the Refugee Draft League), where they will play their home games in Trenton Thunder uniforms.

No word yet on where the Thunder will play when their season starts. I'm betting on Atlantic City.

So today we see the Yankees do have a rally in their bones to win 8-4 and break their 3 game losing streak, and the Orioles after sweeping the Red Sox at Fenway, get swept by the Red Sox at Camden Yards.

The only thing that really bothers me about them is that they designated the brown jersey as their primary road uniform instead of the tan pinstripes, other than that I'm okay with them. My other minor nitpick is that I wish they went with the '85-'03 style "Padres" wordmark on their home uniform, the original-style wordmark is a bit bland.

Half the team can't hit or play defense, and the bullpen has become full trash outside of Cole and maybe Chapman.

Agreed on both fronts. I always really liked the cursive font, but the classic would've been pretty cool too. I'm happy with anything that isn't Dodgers blue and Dodgers white though

Speaking of, the Dads can't seem to win against anyone besides the Dodgers, which is troubling. I do like beating the Dodgers, but winning other games is similarly important
