You joke, but some of the Francophone population in Quebec are still probably reeling over the loss of the Expos and refuse to support the Jays or MLB as a way to stick it to their Anglophone masters.

We don't talk about those days.
What people today don't understand is what an amazing baseball town Montreal was and is.

Such a shame what happened in Montreal.

Vive les expos!

Indeed. Montreal seeded the foundations of baseball in Canada that the Jays finished building in 1992 and 93. Only now are we starting to see the fruits of their labor start to grow in fantastic, young baseball talent coming out of Canada. But there certainly needs to be more in terms of even distribution. Most of the players coming out are from BC, the rest filling out from Ontario, and then Russell Martin.
 
hi i'm looking for where i'm supposed to file this complaint against Robert Nutting, known cheapskate.

i feel like 2017 is going to be dismal for the Bucs.
 
Atkins is doing his post-mortem with the press.

Says Bautista is still an everyday outfielder. Likes Gibby.
Likewise, Atkins has asked Rogers to have the payroll bumped up and that the pitch 'will' result in more allowance.

Also heard from the grapevine that Roberto Osuna is now a permanent reliever, and that the team is looking at possibly making Joe Biagini a starter in Spring Training.

LATIN, MATRIPEDICABUS, DO YOU SPEAK IT
Ahh there you go. Broncos avatar.
With the Rams back in town, still feels weird not seeing Dodgers fans also be Rams fans, like it used to be for forever pre-STL move. It was almost always Giants/Niners vs Doyers/Rams.

NomarTyme's the only Gaffer I can think of who has that allegiance combination.
 
OTANI

2 doubles against Kuroda and hit the game winning single in the 10th

If I'm being remotely honest I am going to join the two-teamers when he comes over.

game was soo good, Fighters' OF Nishikawa made a risky steal w/ 2 outs in the 10th to get in scoring position. Osera was shook but still threw a nice slider to Otani...but he knew they were trying to get him inside and just went down and smacked it. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Fs' still down 2-1 though.
 
I went to Yankee Stadium a few years ago, and it was honestly such a massive disappointment.

Such a sterile, boring ballpark. A far cry from the old Yankee Stadium.

I honestly believe that the Yankess ownership group doesn't care as much about the stadium's history as say, Boston or the Cubbies do. Sure, they care about the team's history, but they see the stadium as a means to an end.
 
The thing is, ultimately, you need amenities to attract the casual fans out to the Bronx for maybe a day at the park once, twice a year maybe. The hardcore Yankee fan will go no matter what, even if the stadium is considered 'sterile'. But the people living in New Jersey, Manhattan, or Brooklyn that don't care? That's who the Yanks are trying to attract with this stuff, and why I don't have a problem with it.

And also, even if Yankee Stadium II is considered sterile, it's an infinitely better looking ballpark then the cavern that is the Rogers Centre.
 
nah, Angels, I need to find the article because they uncovered some nasty front office remarks about keeping out minorities.
I seem to have thought it was either the Angels or Yankees, but I'm not surprised. Orange County can get racist as fuck from what I've heard, and considering how lily white the Angels are as a whole...
 
i know no one cares but the Fighters came from behind again overnight to beat the Carp and tie the Japan Series 2-2, my favorite player had the game tying home run and I'm a pretty happy dude right now.
