    I thought "Big Papi" was a cocksucker a-hole 15 years ago, when he was all the rage.

    I was never wrong.

    WTF, I can't stand the demonization of "snitches"; how about starting with not doing the bad thing? I'm not trying to be perfect and not pretending that I'm perfect, but if you do the act, live with the consequences UNLESS there was an express agreement at the start to keep things confidential, i.e. Fiers was part of the origin (yeah then don't snitch).

    Don't want to have to deal with a snitch?? Don't cheat. Its not that hard.

    Fuck papi. Gets shot for fucking another guys wife/gf. He cheats on wife. Cheats by taking PEDs. And probably cheated with his Sox teammates like the *stros.

    they’ll probably name the All Star Game MVP after him, too

    I love these Little Leagues "banning" the Astros from their leagues - they can talk about trying to set an example for their players, but I figure most of it is parents not wanting their kids to be teased and mocked.

    I work for a rec district that has not banned the Astros, but we have joked about booing the 8-year-olds on opening day and banging trash cans.

    It’s great that players are actually speaking their minds. Answering questions in paragraphs not merely cliches. Trout and Judge, vying to be the most vanilla players in history, speaking extemporaneously, and slamming the Astros without measured tones.

    and every single one those players would have done the same thing given the opportunity.

    They were given the opportunity. There were lots of complaints about the Astros. All the teams complaining had the opportunity to cheat. Did they ?

    That comes from management not players. There’s not a damn player who is going to say no to knowing what pitch is coming.

    The Boston baseball cabal will be doing just that when they, um, bang the drum to get him in the HOF.
