did they bother checking out his line for the 2 games (3.2 innings) against the astros in the world series :shock: ::):

I certainly hope so.

The Cubs are an Evil Empire now? Oh, right, you're a Cardinals fan.

And they're run by Theo Epstein, who created the first Evil Empire clone in Boston. So it's not simply being a Cards fan. It's buying your way to a pennant.

I decided to not renew MLB.TV this season. The service is $120 per season, but I'd be surprised if I watched more COMPLETE games with the service last season than I can count on the fingers of one hand. I'm just as happy listening to radio broadcasts of games via SiriusXM Radio. I tend to prefer the Tigers' radio announcers anyway.

There were only about 50 complete games in the majors last year anyhow.







Yes, I know that's not what you meant.

My friend Tiffany says she usually waits until later in the season, around Mother's Day or Father's Day, when subscriptions are deeply discounted. I might do that.

The Cardinals and SS Paul DeJong agreed to a six year, $26m contract extension, avoiding arbitration (a few years from now).

Scott Boras lost the offseason: http://www.espn.com/blog/buster-olney/i ... cott-boras

I don't think it's collusion. I think team management in general is much less likely to shell out big bucks for players in a decline phase of their career.

Outrage about the rule in the minors this season, where every extra inning starts with a man on second:

Bases loaded or man on first make more sense.

I'm impressed that the Tigers are *only* 500 to 1 longshots. I would've expected something more like 10,000 to 1. :fyi:
