Thank fucking God the Asterisks are out, now just hope to God the Braves can win or they'd pull the biggest choke ever.

Well we weren’t up by 3 but up 2 so not really the biggest choke there.

We really didn’t choke. We only lead 2-0 when we had the first loss and then it was a win one lose one situation. This last game was also pretty close so we didn’t almost do what the rays did which was be up for 3 games and then lose three straight

I am going to make it to Fenway this summer, but, it is for an "internationally friendly" futbol match (Liverpool FC vs Sevilla FC) I am really looking forward to seeing baseball in alternative parks, but still, kinda weird...

Have a good season because you're lucky to go there, because I can't move.

They beat the Rays who beat the Astros, so they indirectly paid the Astros back with a series victory.

Yankees are shuffling up their minor league affiliates.

Not sure if ditching Trenton is a good idea financially, the Thunder consistently put asses in seats and sell a lot of merchandise.

Somerset is closer to NYC to pull local fans. Dropping Staten Island is news. They are putting all the farm teams around the city. (Except tampa).

Increased draw of local fans seems like it would be negligible, the Yankees still have a strong fanbase around Trenton, plus Trenton has the advantage of pulling in all the Phillies fans whenever Reading comes to town.

Earlier reports had Binghamton on the chopping block, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Thunder affiliate with the Mets.
