LOL.

Although, I have to say, all the tarps + eye masks ruin the fun of a champagne celebration.

Players who sign $300 million dollar contracts are upset teams aren't scrambling to grab them all.

Sure, it probably is owners colluding to bring down the price of free agents, but can you blame them? Ratings and attendance aren't exactly breaking records, and your overall popularity isn't even as good as the NBA's:

9% of the population list your sport as their favorite to watch. 7% list soccer. (Let that sink in...) Maybe instead of those contracts continuing to skyrocket, they need to come back to Earth and be more realistic?

Dear Frank Thomas,

Your pinball machine is easily one of the best ever. I enjoyed watching your baseball career.

However, I am really tired of your Nugenix commercials. Please stop.

All Star Election Day.

Not sure I can think of anything that sounds more pointless.

Man paid millions to play child's game has fan ejected for being mean to him.

Listen, I'm 100% on board with tossing assholes who curse, use racial slurs, etc. There are kids and families there and those assholes ruin their experience.

However, what is with the thin skinned athletes and their war against criticism? It's not just fans, but the way they attack the media and each other. Any slight is seen as a dramatic personal attack.

Pro ball player is currently 0-44 in his last 44 at bats.

2 more ties the record.

Davis is in the fourth season of a $161 million, seven-year contract.

Trump cancels deal that allowed MLB to sign Cubans.

I have no idea why. That's going to hurt Cuba. Expect more refugees.

Acuna's slide is hilarious.

WTF was he doing? Ha!

Don't watch the video at the top, scroll down to see the slide and his monster HR.

I honestly thought it was me for a time, but I have specifically tested it and it will randomly fail sometimes.

I should be more vigilant in making sure the URL I post is the correct one.

TY, sir. So, stupid question, if you are running the bases and get hit by a throw, what is that? Ball still in play, and play continues?

If a fielder throws the ball and it hits the runner then the play continues as is. There have been many instances where a throw has gone off a runners helmet and went careening into the outfield and the runner just keeps on going.

On the other hand, if a runner interferes with a batted ball then the runner is out.
