Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I think you have to admit it's pretty cool they put on jerseys with nicknames and sat with the kids for the game. It would have been way cooler if they had told that kid to turn around and pay attention to the friggin game. Mrs psu_dad : You're a grouch. Me : The attention span crisis in this count...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

You can't retool every year in baseball. Well, you can, but you have to spend big money. The Red Sox official payroll is 220M. But that money is not all on the field. For luxury tax purposes, your official payroll includes everyone you're currently paying. So the 55M owed to Fudgie the Whale (DFA),...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

In fairness to the Pirates management, the average ticket price in PNC Park is $23. The average ticket price in Fenway Park is $57. You can't get into Fenway Park for $23. You can't even park for $23.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I put the game on for a few minutes. That park looks like it holds less people than the LL park. I presume a Class A team plays there?

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Unfortunately, that perception of time racing by gets worse with age, not better. Much worse. The summers that seemed to last an eternity as a child now fly by in no time.
