Way to go MLB, jeopardizing a huge overseas marketing opportunity in order to try to shave a few hundred thousand bucks.

Thankfully, the issue has been resolved and everyone will be fairly compensated.

Yep. I was looking forward to watching opening day over OJ and breakfast sandwiches. I can't wait...I got up for the Yankee games when they went, it was cool.

I gotta admit, I'm not a big fan of playing regular season games in Japan. I've never been to Japan and I'm sure its a fine country, but the trip takes its toll on the players. When the Yanks went to Japan, it took a few weeks for them to recover from the trip when they returned. For some, it took all season. Just ask Kevin Brown and Jason Giambi about their parasites. Anyway, I've got no problem with the BoSox going though, because any advantage the Yanks can get over them, I'll take.

ESPN has an east-coast bias? Nah.

Screen grab from yesterday (the 19th), courtesy deadspin:



ESPN sucks.

Typical lead story on Sports Center during baseball season:

"ZOMG! Jeter ate a bad taco and has the shits!!11!!!"

Meanwhile, something happens on the same day - like Torii Hunter has an unbelievable game hitting like 5 dingers and knocks in 10 runs or something like that.

But, unfort, Torii plays outside Boston/NY, so he'll be the 3rd story on Sports Center that night, with a short mention.

Effin NY. Effin Boston. Effin ESPN.

John you realize that the owner of your team believes that Anaheim is unimportant right? Why else would he fight to change the team to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Pwnd by reality.

I'll give you the Cubs, but despite the fact that Tampa is on the Western side of Florida, it is still just about as "East Coast" as you can get. Tampa has long been the winter home for the Yankees. The city is CRAWLING with retirees from the NYC area. It is unmistakably EAST COAST!

Can we ban the Lackey?

I think we lackey the resources to do that, a mod would have to.


But instead we can just have him run errands for us since he can't pitch. Thats right, we can have him be...wait for it...





....here it comes....







....Lackey the lackey.
