Duensing’s nickname is “Deuce” which is fitting since he always seems to give up two runs.

(as I typed that I got a bit paranoid, please note I'm mildly colorblind so If the aren't actually the exact same colors I blame that)

They look the same to me. Cubs, Dodgers, Royals and Jays all look the same colors to me too.


Same for the Angels, Braves, and Red Sox.

Nightengale having a great night on Twitter. Apparently JD Martinez is an mvp finalist but Trout isn’t.

No offense to old people, but do you really want to hire a 65-year old to lead you in any industry/business?

What a terrible organization... I wish the Yankees were as incompetent as the team on the other side of town.

Ned Yost is awful. They practically had to drag his ass out of the dugout to stick up for his pitcher. He should have been out there 15 pitches ago.

The prognosticators really whiffed on Jose Ramirez this year. By fWAR, ZIPS (2.0) and Steamer (1.9).....he's at 7.7 right now with 6 weeks to go :shock:
