Remembering that most people in the wider world don't hate the Yankees gives me the same feeling as remembering that most people think cops are good and that Elon Musk is a genius

Oh yeah, I still won't be able to watch the Cubs on YouTube TV anyway, well, fuck this, fuck this season, fuck baseball

If we get through this accurséd season only to arrive at a Yankees/Dodgers World Series, I will lie on the floor and scream forever

Does MLB think that fans go to games to cheer for the owners??? This is the only way their "the players are all a bunch of greedy babies and we hate them" PR strategy makes sense

I just read a thing about which KBO team you should root for that devoted exactly one sentence to the LG Twins, and it was like, "just like the Minnesota ones, these Twins seem boring," like exfuckingcuse me, now I must root for them, out of spite

Watching this Blue Jays/Orioles wild card game from 2016 and wondering what happened to Brett Cecil, only to learn that he made 40 appearances in 2018 with the Cardinals and compiled an ERA of 6.89 and feeling like I do not understand baseball at ALL

My husband and I are watching game 5 of the 2016 World Series during lunch and losing our minds over it like we don't know what happens, like we weren't THERE

Watching this game is just an experience of Remembering Some Guys and whispering, "Scott Kazmir," to myself

Show thread

MLB Network is showing Mark Buerhle's perfect game, it's starting right now so we are like two short hours away from "call your sons call your daughters! Call your friends call your neighbors!"

Every day of my life I am furious that most of The Dugout has disappeared into the internet's memory hole

Mx. Scraps boosted
