Yeah that was awesome. Wasn't the same after they moved it to Reading.
Drunk and stupid is no way to be remembered but it is an easy way to forget.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.

Never went when they were in Reading... I remember buying two huge blue Phillies winter coats for $5/each and giving my son's godfather one for Christmas... was great too getting random player shirseys which you never saw around here for a buck or two

From SABR bio:

Frank Robinson accomplished as much in baseball as anyone ever had: Rookie of the Year; MVP of each league; MVP of the World Series; MVP of the All-Star game; Gold Glove winner; Manager of the Year; Triple Crown winner.


I'm thinking that's pretty good.
Which part? And who are you?

This is the greatest MLB/Pokémon crossover tweetthread in history. Might be the greatest overall tweetthread in history.

Three-batter requirement for all pitchers, universal DH among proposals that could bring big changes to baseball. Latest for The Athletic

https://theathletic.com/802364/2019/02/ ... -baseball/


Seems like pretty major potential changes for 2 months before the season?
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

Yeah, Ill say. Have to think we would've kept Slamtana (or at least Bour) knowing we could use a DH?

Missed this last month but it was mentioned when the Raiders were blocked from San Francisco, but AT&T Park is now Oracle Park. 4th name in 20 years

Britton says his name is actually spelled zack so he’s going with that now instead of zach.
