I couldn't agree more. I did NOT agree with what Maris Jr. had to say. Big Mac and Barry crushed his father's record and he's still butthurt about it. You still have to go out there and hit the ball and they sure did. Other players in a similar environment were not able to do so. Way it goes.

There’s not a league that hates fun as much as MLB.

It's just absurd.

Bonds and McGwire don't count because they had an advantage.

But the two guys who played half their games in a stadium specifically built to allow more homeruns? The other guy who played on the same little league stadium against only white guys? They good.

Still a joke that baseball shits all over the era that saved the sport from collapse into irrelevancy.

Remember when they used to call the NFL the No Fun League because they started to penalize players for excessive celebrations?

i'm in a two front battle of the mind, in where one side of me is disappointed that our GM punted away the trade deadline and left the team weak in middle relief, DH and catcher - which led to calling up top prospects and unfairly thrusting them into highly important games and expecting them to perform... while the other side of me is telling the #LOLMETS crowd to eat shit as we'll likely win 100 games this season and are still very much title contenders.

i'm also incredibly jet lagged so all in all it's a rough day.

They’ll be *perennial* contenders I hope but some real headscratching choices and losses are going to be fodder if they flame out early in the playoffs.

end of the day... we can talk about September all we want.

Mets are 66-44 since June 1. In any normal year, that's more than enough to close out the division and slide into the playoffs as the 2 seed.

The Braves are 77-33 over that same stretch. if they played at this pace the entire season they'd win 114 games, which would be the second highest win total in MLB history.

tis what it tis.

we're still in the playoffs. reset and go. you'd have to beat these teams one way or the other.

I literally came here just to complain about how much I don’t care about Aaron Judge’s not record. ESPN, CNN, Yahoo, every fucking news media and sports media under the Sun things I need a push notification for a not record. I grew up with Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds actually making records. This isn’t a record.

Actually rant not over.

I don’t give a flying fuck about a fan giving his not record ball back either.

62 is the new AL/Yankee record, so that works for me. It took 61 years to break that record. MLB needs to promote their game as best as they can. I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm sure MLB would have loved for Judge to pass Barry or even Big Mac. 73 is the record. We get it. But, MLB and the networks that broadcast their games need to generate interest in their game for MLB to be successful in the future. I'm sure you all know that. Judge is the face of MLB right now and he is bringing MLB new fans. That should be regarded as a good thing.
