Didn't you/somebody post about them deciding it was a tiny change in how high the stitching was? Maybe they ruled that out.

 
Wasn't there an unusual number of pitchers with finger blister problems last year? That tiny change could certainly be the problem there.

They apparently ruled out the stitching because Rawlings claims that's unchanged because of their QC standards. Considering the amount of time that was spent on the "research" it's not very clear why they don't have any explanation other than "reduced drag".

It's that, or re-plumbing the garage, so yeah. Jealous. I appreciate the kind thoughts tho  
 
I hope your tie-dyed brother gets to go; the play-by-play team loves that. And as I look to the east out my kitchen window, it looks like great weather for you.

Marcell Ozuna was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals because he overslept.

That first 105 broke about 2 feet and wound up that far outside. Even if he leaves it over the plate, nobody's going to make good contact. I'd start swinging about the time he got his signs, so I imagine a lot of batters get in the same mindset: Swing hard in case you hit it.

 
I haven't seen him pitch but suspect he hasn't much in the way of secondary pitches.

That is surprising - apparently he has some control "issues".  In the video of the pitching sequence it looks as if Herrera reached first base on a wild pitch after striking out.

The five pitches Hicks fired to Herrera in a ninth inning at-bat Sunday were the five fastest pitches of the 2018 season thrown by any pitcher. Two registered at 105 mph. The others: 104.3, 104.2 and 103.7. 

"Odubel just takes forever to get in the box," Hicks said, referencing Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera. "It amps me up a little bit. So I bring it against him."

You raise an interesting point. Teams from both Alberta and Manitoba should play some games in Saskatchewan. Not sure about Northern Ontario. Ontario already has 2 teams, so they should jump north for a few games.

The Athletics are one of the storied franchises in baseball tho. Would you turn your nose up at the Yankees? A true expansion club brings no history with it, and it takes decades, with or without a championship, to achieve any sort of parity with the rest of the league, as far as respect from other fans goes. It's kind of fun in the beginning, but it's a tough financial challenge, I think, to succeed.

 
 
Okay, then.
 
Baseball is baseball after all...and the important thing is that we'd have it.

Yeah, on the other hand I do judge teams by their names, and think names should ideally reflect location, unless there is a long history. So when the Jets rose like a phoenix from the ashes, they really should have changed their silly name. And I for one like more expansive location names, if appropriate. There are a number of Australian Rules football teams that have partner relationships where they play periodically in cities that aren't big enough to host their own team. So I think the Jets should be rotating through Saskatchewan and Thunder Bay Ontario. Heck, there are so many NHL games, it would be easy to share some. So yeah, I just can't get very into the Jets. Maybe if they were the Prairie Chickens or something like that.
