NL fans don't like the DH because they're jealous.

Yankee fans always amaze me by how little they know about baseball.

its weird how yankee fans cling to the "we have 27 championships man!" logic deliriously.

I have super yankee fan friends who are not even 30y/o and will start in with the "we have 27championships!!!" rant... and they are from places like california and have never stepped foot in NY state and have only feasibly lived to see around 5 of those championships.... on TV.

Took me long enough... finally caught a game a Target Field... 75 perfect degrees. Great ballpark.

It's the same way with the Sox. It seems like everybody in WV is either a Yankees or Sox fan with a few disgruntled Buccos fans thrown in. What I find most curious is how they adopt the attitudes of the local fans, which are heavily influenced by overarching Boston and NY attitudes and completely incoherent with their WV attitudes.

 

Very odd indeed.

Finally! A (Detroit Tigers) win over the Royals! Now, on to Chicago. Brawl, anyone?

Oy, Braun. Thinking about his self-righteous speech last year is cringeworthy now. This also puts a lot of pressure on A-Roid to come clean as well.

Ha, I like the lame attempt to muddy that by beginning his statement with "As I have acknowledged in the past . . ."

If you search Twitter for "[insert slugger]" there are people saying they are next. Kinda sad but c'est baseball, I suppose.

You know something is wrong with MLB's disciplinary system when they're suspending someone like Ryan Braun, who's been nothing but an upstanding MLB citizen.

Right, it's almost as if they're suspending him somewhere between a first and second offense for violating the PED policy. It is simply outrageous.

I am visiting family in Wisconsin right now. Ryan Braun is beloved here. I guess the local spirit just rubbed off on me a little bit when I made that post.

I thought he doth protest a bit too much last year. That speech he gave was more suspicious than the 20:1 test:epitest result.
