    I half-adopted the Expos as my 2nd favorite team as a kid because I loved their hats. These should live on for eternity:

    They are amazing.

    Tim Wakefield passed away from brain cancer this weekend, at a time when his wife is battling with pancreatic cancer. Tim was one of the good guys - the 2010 Roberto Clemente Award winner - and I'm so bummed. Win or lose, he was a stand up man and the world is a little less without him in it.




    Meanwhile, in enraging news, he had been keeping it private. So former World Series hero-turned MAGA chud Curt Schilling outs him last week and calls him selfish for keeping it private. Thanks Curt, you raging *******, for making Tim's last days on earth filled with stress. Take your bloody sock and shove it up your MAGA ***.

    The fact that the Twins will likely win their division with the same record as the Mariners probably has something to do with that.
    Almost a perfect call from 2.5 months ago.

    Braves only manage to tie the Twins single season HR record. Only 3rd team over 300.

    The Tigers -- and baseball gods -- orchestrated one of the great sendoffs in sports.
    On the only play of Miguel Cabrera's first defensive appearance since '21, he recorded an unassisted putout. Then his kids helped A.J. Hinch remove him from the game.
    Goosebumps.
    I was happy with it. Sort of made up for walking him in his last at bat in 7th.

    During the Mets game it was announced that if the game had bearing on the post-season then the top of the ninth would be scrubbed and we would win in 8, while if it had no bearing it would finish including the top of the 9th and we would lose.

    He's a better poker commentator anyway.

    Well they gave him an 81 win team and he more or less gave them an 81 win season.

    Sadly, I agree with this.

    You should adopt the Mets as your NL team, Jim. You are already barrel-aged for it.

    The Mariners are Greek tragedy: the fall of the hero at the hand of destiny, led by the gods to the depths of suffering. The Mets are Shakespearean tragedy: the fall of the hero at his own hands, ensemble cast, deeply comedic.
