    Yeah, that Tatis contract extension is one of the most idiotic things I've seen in sports management. They basically disregarded their one big advantage - time. Now they get to sweat every injury.

    At this point, I wouldn't let him try to muscle through the season. I'd protect my investment and shut him down. They still have enough talent to stay in the hunt while he recovers, but even if they were to fall too far back, it's better to sacrifice one year than to potentially make it a chronic issue.

    I guess they were worried he’d be so great that a 340 million dollar contract would be pennies to what he’d get in say 2027

    Still his contract isn’t the worst. Especially now when he’s only getting paid 1 million. If he needs surgery, get it now. Even if you sacrifice the year it’s better than sacrificing 10

    Way to go, MLB. Take the game from a community with numerous minority-owned businesses and move it to one that's 87% white, then pretend you're woke.

    Sorry, I know that's political. Probably should have used the other thread.

    He's not a douche, he's just flat out dumb, and he reaffirms it with everything he struggles to articulate.

    Yeah, I am sure during a Pandemic there was going to be an influx of people coming to the All Star Game that was going to really boost the region. I am sure all the locally owned African American businesses around the park are going to take a hit like *checks map* The Punch Bowl, Yard House, Red Lobster, KFC, Dunkin' and many another fine dining you can only find every 5 square miles around the country. Please save me from this Faux News bullshit headline. They plopped a stadium in the middle of nowhere and filled the surrounding commercial with large chain restaurants and major hotel chains. This is making a statement about the state passing ludicrous voter suppression laws and moving it to another state with arguably the best voting practices in the country. That's it. This whole right wing spin on the thing is fucking ignorant bull fucking shit. I don't care who I just offended, btw.

    His point is that the league was disingenuous in making this decision. His response was calculated and appropriate.

    Nobody is offended. You're entitled to your opinion.

    Fox News is no more or less garbage than what you watch and consider legitimate.

    I agree with you that the game is of no consequence to wherever it is played, economically or otherwise. That's precisely why moving the game is just pandering.

    If there is nothing to gain or lose from the All-Star game (as you fairly point out), why did MLB feel the need to move it in the first place? If they move the Braves out of Georgia or don't allow teams to play there as visitors, that would actually impress me. The league would actually stand to lose something in that scenario. Sacrifice for what's right! But they won't.

    As usual, the mob is stating their opinion as fact and extorting anybody who doesn't agree. I actually don't mind the extortion. The league should do whatever they want.

    I'm not offended in the least by others opinions about anything unlike the cancel crowd outrage lefties offended by people's skin color
    And if I were there for the game I'd be looking for the best local places to eat bit that's just me
    I've never eaten in any of those places you mention

    All I got from your rant is that you are offended.
    And brought out some weak analytics to back up your argument.
    The only thing offensive is how useless analytics are continually use to back up non points.
    The amount of KFCs within a 5 minute radius of the park has nothing to do with the point.
    It's like being served a big blop of camel dung at a restaurant and complaining to the waiter that there's a fly on your plate.
    You missing some shit.

    I'm cool with Kid's response too. I value everyone's opinion, and it's good that we don't all agree on everything.

    Both sides are up their asses.
    One by crouching to the left and the other to the right.
    Thats why each side is programmed to react with a trained rebuttal when they see a trigger word or phrase without trying to read the intent of what the writer is saying.
    If you get into politics you will get groomed by one of the two sides into becoming reactionary,
    Those are bad sheep.
    Be good sheep, get lost.

    You know I'm lost
    But now the I'm being hunted by guilt ridden nazis for the color of my skin
    talk about reducing us all to the basest of natures sheerly in the pursuit of power
    i mean jim crow laws por favor that's a blatant lie
    nothing is more racist than telling folks they aren't smart enough to acquire a photo idea
    pretty sure this will go how most of those conversations go though
    throw a bomb and no follow up
    no need to get angry, hate and scream when people don't agree w you
    thats easy and debating requires actual facts
    cheers

    Yet you let yourself fall to the lava pit when you are roped into a side.
    You can't win that tug of war game.
    It's hate cult vs care cult and both sides are just as bad and just as old.
    If you want to be lost you have to check out of the game.
    If you aren't on one of the two mainstream teams then it won't hurt you when someone says something against your team.
    You aren't a Laker with your biases bubbling up at the surface.
    Or a covetous Celtic in the white shadows of the forest floor.
    You are a Dodger.
    And your power is the dark side of the blue sky.
    Skullduggery, the old Vin Scully Dodger way.
    You have more and better information.
    They talk about bad news.
    You talk about good shit.

    But you can't do that if you on team Laker or team Celtic.
    You aint playing basketball.
    And this aint practice.
    Only way you can beat this AI is by being unpredictable.
    Being yourself.
    Not part of Team A or Team B but Team S.
    Yeah like Superman.
    Just means a variation of the mean.
    Everyone else is mean.
    But they mean well.

    Besides this isnt your first draft.
    You know the math, you remember shopping at alpha beta.
    The 1's and 2's trying to punch out black jacks number.
    Its actually predatory behavior of the most civilized form.
    Anything else would be stone age behavior.
    You would think folks were fighting over shiny rocks in clay or other mineral based products deposited at plutonian depths under the ground.
    Best to get lucky and go to the safeway for your daily bread.
    And that is the high ground.
    Not one of the binary but one with the binary.
    Following the safeway covering the 2's for the 1.
    Is the job of the 6th man.
    Who brings the ball up from the rear.
    Before he gets lucky and scores.
    And you score by not falling in to the lava pitfall of political tug o war and instead doing something to help redeem your fallen friend.

    Remember, the black side of the forest is strong with you.
    And that the forest is within you.

    voted for team A, B and C in my life
    always voted for the best man
    you know i'm not a republican but what's going on now is bs
    i possess some very liberal ideals but these aren't liberals anymore
    more like an army of sanctimonious whining fools
    easy to chose a side
    basically whoever's not them

    So apparently Bauer's balls were sticky and the league is examining them. For realz. No word yet if they were sweaty, too.

    How much time do they need to finish this? Would be nice to know if he's pitching next week.
