Baseball on Facebook: Good? Bad?

“Basebook”. Is that anything? During opening week, the Mets-Phillies game was streamed live exclusively on Facebook. It’s the first time a U.S. league has done this and it made everyone over the age of thirty scratch their heads. They’re doing this for up to 25 games this season, including today’s Brewers-Cardinals game. All of the Facebook Watch games will be afternoon games, so that those … Continue reading Baseball on Facebook: Good? Bad?

Week One Almost Done

It’s been less than a week and already the 2018 season has been WILD. Last night alone, 136 runs were scored throughout the league. 136! There have been multiple inside-the-park homers, players with multi-HR games, unwritten rules, and 15-inning games. As much as I hate giving into the “phenom” thing, Shohei Ohtani has been pretty fun to watch. I’ve always loved a good cold shoulder … Continue reading Week One Almost Done

Baseball is a slow game

Every year Major League Baseball makes moves to try to speed up the the game. A lot of times it’s successful and even more often it’s ignored and then is only a distant memory. This season will be no different. The Commish’s office and the Players Association worked together to come up with new initiatives to keep ratings up and Rob Manfred happy. Here’s a … Continue reading Baseball is a slow game

Babe of the Week: Nov 6

Happy Monday, Babes! The New York City Marathon was yesterday. Congratulations to everyone who ran. You accomplish something that I could truly never imagine and cannot find the wherewithal to even think about training for, mostly because I went for a run this morning and stopped after 3 minutes. And I have an overactive bladder so there’s that. We want to dedicate this week’s BOTW … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Nov 6

OPINION: There’s nothing competitive about a coin toss

The NFL overtime rules have long been under scrutiny, undergoing a few major changes in recent years. And while the NFL has certainly taken steps in improving the overtime format, I’m still not on board. In 2012, the NFL adjusted the rules so the team with first possession in overtime could no longer win the game on a field goal. If they kick a 3-pointer, the other team gets a chance to … Continue reading OPINION: There’s nothing competitive about a coin toss

Babe(s) of the Week: Oct 13

Our first Babe of the Week is a special one. You can find them robbing fans of line drives on the baselines at Dodger Stadium. Amy Moore and Christina Zambrana, both former college softball players and current ballgirls for the Los Angeles Dodgers, are flat out studs. (Confession: I once got a little tipsy at a Dodgers game and very obnoxiously cheered on the ballgirls … Continue reading Babe(s) of the Week: Oct 13
