    In a study funded by the A’s, Aguero’s firm projected 53% of the stadium’s annual attendees would come from beyond the city, and 30% of the estimated 405,000 out-of-towners would not visit Las Vegas without stadium events.
    The A's ownership is claiming that 53% of the people going to A's games will be visitors. Insert snarky comment about how they're just moving the team and continuing the plan to suck for eternaty.

    Awful Announcing on Twitter: "The White Sox walk it off on a pitch that hits the umpire in the face. ⚾️ Jason Benetti and Steve Stone on the call for NBC Sports Chicago. "What in the world did we just watch?" https://t.co/i96iEb6j96" / Twitter

    First game in MLB history where all 3 runs are scored with wild pitches and no other runs were scored

    Attack for the 4 seeds in the nightcaps of the NCAA baseball tournament.

    Penn 6-5 over #13 Auburn in 11 innings
    Rider 11-10 over #10 Coastal Carolina in 10 innings
    Oral Roberts 6-4 over #11 Oklahoma State
    and right now Nicholls is up 1-0 on #16 Alabama in the 5th.

    What kinda surprised me was Bally wants to dump the Twins (Comcast (I think maybe Charter, or both) refuses to raise prices to meet Bally's demands. But, they're fine with the Brewers over on the Bally North alternate channel Bally Wisconsin.

    Unfortunately Detroit doesn't appear to be a market Diamond is looking to dump.

    Yeah we are stuck with Bally since Detroit is one of the profitable markets they own while also holding the streaming rights. Detroit will likely be one of the last to get onto mlb.tv without local blackouts.

    Mets pitching faced 28 batters in their 2-0 win tonight. Allowed a walk and 2 singles, but got a double play and one caught stealing. No Philly reached second.

    Domino's are tipping. Bally missed its payment to the Padres, Padres tell Bally to pound sand. MLB to produce the games for San Diego starting with tomorrow's game at Miami, and also provide free streaming of the Padres through Sunday.

    San Diego and MLB is looking at having a local broadcaster take over.

    It's really hard for me to fathom less than 30 wins.

    At 10-45, the A's are tied for the worst start through 55 games in the modern era with the 1904 Senators. On pace for a 29-133 record.

    I've read speculation that the Red Wings will also get Meijer patches next season.

    Tucker Barnhart, a backup catcher, threw nothing but 45-mph* Eephus pitches in the ninth at Wrigley in a 10-1 blowout.

    He threw a scoreless inning.

    * One was 39.
