Becoming a more racist organization than the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans.

It has reached that level, right? I don't know the history of the Cardinals that much, so correct if I'm way wrong.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

We got our title. If this is how they operate I hope the Cubs finish in last place for the forseeable future.

This one is my favorite, because it was so obviously a waste of money that the prevailing spin was that they must have tons of cash to waste. The quintessential “Epstein can’t make a bad move, so this apparently bad move is actually good, QED” move.

It helps to remember that all our rivals also exist for the profit of horsefeathers white billionaires and their fan bases are also mostly racist because that is just baseball’s demographics. So think about how sad the Cubs being good would make them.

Fewer ignorant displays by individuals but the Cubs went whole hog enriching the pillars of racial inequity.

But there's a lot less fans of Milwaukee or Cincinnati. It's the utilitarianism approach obviously to inflict the most pain on the largest number of horsefeathers bags.

It’s really funny you guys are surprised that an old, rich white guy is racist and that baseball players are douches.

My point is you should probably avoid all professional sports because you are destined to be sorely disappointed. It is sad but true.

So the two options are:

1. Avoid all sports.
2. Shut up and accept it.

Discussing it is a bad thing somehow?
