It probably makes it even worse, but I think this is his second wife and his twins were from the previous marriage.

Re: Jonah Keri beats his wife

Oh my god. I was wondering why Freezing Cold Takes had re-popped a Tweet he sent about Aroldis Chapman during his Cubs days and I just assumed he had written something bad. Never even occurred to me that would happen. Jesus.

Think I saw the Royals are saving some $400K, but yeah that's probably a nonzero part of the reason.

Re: Martin Maldonado to Cubs

Claiming it won't be more than 10 days doesn't mean a ton to me since they also claimed he was available off the bench yesterday.

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

Did Yu at least get some appreciation from the fans today, I hope? Apart from the HRs, he’s basically pitching like an ace since May 15. His peripherals are outstanding. Hopefully he could be in line for a killer 2nd half. He was getting nice ovations after each of the last few innings. I wasn't li...

Then again, Clint Hurdle is an horsefeathers and I've hated him since 2015. Maybe Maddon feels the same way about Hurdle, and all this losing pushed him over the edge.

Definitely feel like both are true.

What’s a Ryan O’ Malley and should I feel shame for not knowing...? A really crappy soft-tossing LHP the Cubs called up at the end of the season (2006).

Nothing about that proposal makes sense. New stadiums both places?

Where do you play the playoff games? How is th...
