the best part was that, iirc, it started because i didn't understand why someone would want to beat up a pitcher for hitting someone in the face instead of being upset/distraught over their friend getting hit in the face

Speaking of odds, anyone have an idea when Divisional odds will be released? Nearly all the big name free agents are signed, and the odds of anymore big trades occurring before the start of the regular season are fairly slim.

Also anyone care to speculate on what the odds of the Cubs winning the Central will be? It's pretty much a two horse race for the title, with Chicago as favorites, so I would think maybe +120.
