    The same network who trots out Jessica Mendoza and Tim Kurkjian to carry water for the major league baseball is going to become all sleuthy..

    What, you don't think the game directors are going to be zooming in on Altuve's shoulders and body parts looking for lumps and such?

    You won't see those directors zooming in any more than you've seen racing directors zooming out in recent years to show acres of empty grandstands.

    LOL we're going to get some Scorsese-like directing in 2020.

    Little League Baseball coverage.
    I won't even get into the absurdity of 12-year olds playing on 60 foot base paths.

    ESPN's Little League baseball fetish really creeps me out each August.

    I used to feel the same way (and still do to an extent) but started to think about it big picture. If the network is paying a sizable amount to Little League Baseball Inc. that then filters down and helps these programs and, ultimately, the kids, I'm okay with it. But if it's being used to give out bonuses to executive directors and redecorate offices it all can kiss my ass.

    My town's Little League does not participate in the state, regional, national tournaments. One team gets to be town champ and the season ends. That's as it should be. How much more glory does a 12-year old need?

    Surely the parents are up in arms over this. How will Johnny get a scholarship?
