Seems that the players have accepted the owners final proposal before the lockout started a couple weeks ago. Opening day set for April 17th. Will include the full 162 game schedule.
Do people care anymore?
I do, actually. I had a feeling when they didn't get a deal done in advance that it would get ugly. At least they were only a few weeks late.
The good news is that minor league ball was unaffected, so support your local teams. :)
I haven't watched or followed baseball in years but I was thinking of going to a couple of games in Seattle when the big market teams are in town.
Some people complain that baseball is boring. This video disagrees.
This right here is the definition of a utility player, and he might be the best ever at it.
@red-bluff Kapler is a clown and an attention whore. So sick and tired of these social justice warriors. I read a little bit of his blog and I wanted to vomit. Just a bunch of people going around “taking but doing absolutely nothing to fix whatever it is they’re crying about. Social justice warriors are the “thoughts and prayers” of the far left.
The Reds this year are the worst team in baseball. I'm having much more fun following the Norfolk Tides than MLB right now.
I was living in Middletown, Ohio in the summer of 90. I caught a few regular season games and at least one was when the Giants were in town. They had a championship team that year and the city was on fire for the Reds. The street vendor Brats were the best I've ever had. And yes I liked Skyline....and it was always 5 way.
...and good moments.
I honestly think the Norfolk Tides could beat the Reds right now. I was talking to someone a few days ago and had to be honest: I'm a lifelong Reds fan, but right now the only one I can name off the top of my head is Joey Votto because they let go of everyone else worth remembering. I'm hoping the big low this season is a prelude to serious change, but I'm also not holding my breath.
