Any Yankee Fan That Uses Racial Slurs Deserves to Get Their Ass Beat

There’s absolutely no place for this anywhere, let alone at a baseball game. Yankee fans pride ourselves on making the Stadium a hostile environment for opponents to play, especially in big games. It gets insanely loud, and fans heckle away players. Here’s what Twins’ pitcher Tyler Duffey said after his team came into the Bronx for the ALDS last year.

Yankees/Mets All-Time Crossover Lineup

If our country wasn’t currently imploding, we would be about two months into baseball season at this point. Instead of watching people argue on Twitter about coronavirus, racism, or the upcoming election, it should be ME getting into Twitter fights. I’d be defending Gary Sanchez to Yankee fans trying to trade him after a three strikeout game, or battling an Astros fan who still tries to claim “everyone was cheating.” Maybe I’d even be having a nice argument with a Mets fan about how Aaron Judge is clearly better than Pete Alonso, while still admitting that Jacob deGrom is the superior pitcher to Gerrit Cole.

Get Me in a Room With the Owners, I’m Making Baseball Happen

Pardon my French, but what in the shit is happening right now? I literally wrote a blog yesterday about how it was the most optimistic I’ve been that we get baseball in 2020. Well, today is the least optimistic I’ve been. I changed my mind faster than sorority girls going from best friends to sworn enemies; but Becky did fuck Brad from Sigma Apple Pi when she KNEW Taylor called dibs on him, so I get why that happened. What I don’t get is how the owners aren’t realizing they would be killing their league if they don’t play this year. The choices are literally either play this year, take a hit on your bottom line and increase the game’s popularity moving forward. Or don’t play this year, be the only major sport in America to not come back after a pandemic because you couldn’t agree on money and completely cripple the future of your league. Let me put it in restaurant terms because the best metaphors always involve food:

Anyone Calling the Players ‘Greedy’ Isn’t Paying Attention

As a huge baseball fan that’s been completely tuned into whether we’ll have a season or not since the day spring training was suspended, this is the most optimistic I’ve felt in awhile.

The players aren’t going to accept that, but at least we’re at the point of talking full pro-rated salaries now. Owners countering the players’ 114 game offer with 50 games makes it look increasingly likely that both sides meet right in the middle at 82. These negotiations have been relatively ugly, but as long as we get baseball who cares. One thing I can’t stand for, however, is people blaming this hold up on the players.

BTB Sports Win Now Challenge: Seattle Mariners

For those unfamiliar with the BTB Sports “Win Now Challenge,” we’ve been choosing teams on MLB The Show 2020 and attempting to turn them from some of baseball’s worst into World Series champions in just one year. Thus far we’ve seen the Tigers, Giants, and Orioles all fail to win it all. For my first crack at it, I decided to go with the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners were 68-94 in 2019, finishing a cool 39 games out of first place in the AL West, good for dead last in the division. 68-94 is also meaningful because that equates to a winning percentage of .420, and you would have to be fucking high to think this team is a championship contender.

Ways MLB Can Increase Revenue in a Shortened Season


There’s one thing standing in the way of a baseball season in 2020, and it isn’t coronavirus; it’s money. In a shortened season where fans will not be in the stands for most, if not all, of the games, players and owners are jockeying to see who gets screwed over the least. Players want the original pro-rated salaries the sides originally agreed to in March, but owners now want even more because they said they stand to lose more money without fans spending money on tickets, parking, and concessions.

All Rise: Aaron’s Girlfriend Will Be Facing Different Judge After DUI

 

On days like today, I wish my job was writing the backpage headlines for the New York Post, because that headline was the perfect amount of corny. But really, what are we doing here, Aaron? Derek Jeter played two decades in New York and kept out of the tabloids. Judge is in the middle of rehabbing his broken rib and his girl blows a .18? You just can’t have that shit.

James Paxton’s ALCS Game 5 Performance Really Gets Overlooked

James Paxton had an interesting first season as a Yankee. It started off on the right foot with a dominant April start against the Red Sox in which he struck out twelve in eight scoreless innings. Then he ran into a rough patch, getting knocked around by the Mets, Red Sox, and Blue Jays in June and July. However, the guy was money in August and September, winning nine consecutive starts. Paxton was so good, in fact, that he was tapped as the Yanks’ Game 1 starter against Minnesota in the ALDS.

Paxton’s first career playoff start left a lot to be desired, giving up three in 4.2 innings. His next start in ALCS Game 2 at Houston was extremely disappointing, failing to make it out of the third inning. The next time he took the ball in Game 5, Paxton was a completely different pitcher. After allowing a run in a rocky first inning, Paxton settled down and threw five scoreless innings. His final line was one earned run in six innings with nine strikeouts.
