    It'll be a lot easier to avoid Buck on Sundays now, at least. Plus the Faux game of the week or whatever.

    You realize this joke is only funny if you don't know how to pronounce "faux," right?

    In other news, the Cubs signed militant anti-vaxxer Andrelton Simmons. Yay.

    IDK of Fox (News at least) would get it right ;)

    But it is apt for that side of Fox.

    Oakland trades Matt Olson to Atlanta, which pretty much means Freddie Freeman is going to walk. Possibly to the Dodgers.

    I thought for certain Freeman would stay put.

    Wait.

    The National league has the DH now (ugh), right? So wouldn't Olson just go there?

    The Braves wouldn't have coughed up four of their top 14 prospects for Olson if they expected Freeman to re-sign.

    Shit, Shit and double shit. What did they get back, a bag of used baseballs and a wad of chewed bubble gum?

    I haven't checked the Cincy Enquirer today yet.

    Well fuck. They traded Sonny Gray too, the day before, for a bag of stale peanuts. :brickwall:

    It's gonna be a long few or more Hard seasons.

    Per multiple reports, MLB and the MLBPA are discussing bringing back the ghost runner in extra innings.
