    Half their roster tested positive. MLB has officially put them on pause until at least next Monday.

    Also, did any of you catch this?

    Sorry Dusty, but this is frontier justice.

    Baseball's no-dome experiment is done. It will not stop with the Marlins. It also points to a doomed NFL plan.

    As per Philadelphia's cancellations, MLB did that because the clubhouse the Yankees were about to occupy on the road in Philly had been home to the Marlins the previous three days.

    There is a hundred page manual of Covid procedures, and likely only a few of them apply to what we see on TV. No contact unless necessary for play, but they can't even stop high-fiving! Just imagine what happens behind the scenes.


    It was clear to me he lost his control as Jomboy was alluding to and it wasn't intentional. At the same time because he lost control, there might have been a little Ivan Drago bubbling inside him.

    The manager of the Astros, Dusty Baker, is whining about "dirty baseball". Sure he wasn't the manger in 2017, but still....
    MLB needs a new rule barring any Astro from whining about anything for a period of at least 5 years. They're the modern kings of "dirty baseball".

    OTOH, there's always the old maxim, "if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying" :D

    Jomboy is THE BEST.

    Sorry about all the time you're gonna lose watching his breakdowns.
