    You mean Cool Papa?
     
  2. Apologies, do not get the reference to the former Negro Leaguer.

    So the seats are going to be disguised as fans?

    I'm thinking the cutouts, like in the KBO.

    What would really be a joke is if the final standings looked like weirdo ca. 1878 standings, where some teams have played more games than others.

    Because it just feels like some of these games are not going to go off, and for reasons that've nothing to do with weather.

    Back when Ted Williams’ son was fighting to keep his father frozen, some writer (forget who) came up with the nickname Cool Papa for Ted.

    An indie league team in Arizona held a "Ted Williams Night" shortly after his remains were frozen in the Phoenix area. Fans got a free popsicle.

    Why can’t MLB front-office employees work from home? This is ridiculous policy by the Rangers, who may be migrating back to the top of my least-favorite franchises list.



    Also, the Rangers’ new ballpark looks like a damn airplane hangar. I fully expect V-22 Ospreys to zoom out of that roof opening.

    And their old stadium really wasn't that old and had already been renovated once, IIRC. Fuck the Rangers.

    Good for The Athletic for taking the locals to task.

    I read a tweet saying it looked like the world's biggest tool shed, which I think is accurate.

    ESPN home page has headline: Sources: Nationals to host Yanks on Opening Day. Who fuckin' cares! Nobody can go to the games. If the headline was Nationals to host Yanks in New Zealand it'd mean just as much. This is so pathetic. So much better to have just folded the tents.
