That’s a bit misleading. Because I don’t hate strike outs. I dislike them, sure. It’s an out. But it’s no worse an out than a ground out unless a runner could have been advanced or something like that but still…

Well holy shit. BmoreBirdsNest alerted me to some drama taking over the obscure (yeah I said obscure) Baltimore Sports Media scene.
Holy shit! Are you serious? I have no idea, as the article doesn’t get into the specifics or repost the actual lawsuit, what the deal is here. It looks to be like some cat-fighting, he-said she-said stuff. Some costly cat-fighting. $800k!
Yesterday we gave you the NL preview. Today the AL. I hope you didn’t take it too seriously and yes, we know it’s a rip-off of the Deadspin Haters guide to other things but we prefer, homage. Anyway, here again is Conor O’neill.
OMG, Opening Day is so close I can smell ESPN’s musty montages. And John Kruk. In preparation for this week’s openers, we have to explore the American League teams, for hate’s sake. Hopefully, this season keeps our attention so we won’t be forced to click over to the NBA Finals. Now back to the show….
My good friend Connor O’neil, who you’ve seen in the comments section as Sox fan in hiding, took the time to layout a reason for why you should hate every team in baseball this year. Consider this a handy pocket guide while heckling at inter-league games. Keep in mind that it’s just for fun and not everything should be taken seriously. The Marlins aren’t gay and Pujols is probably worth every penny as much as the gross national debt…so don’t get your panties in a twist. Enjoy.
Jjaks swears he’s going to put up the TWIT for this week tonight so you can read that tomorrow. Also have something from a guest coming up soon. Until then…
Cuts! We have cuts today. Most are from the not surprising category. Reimold to re-slay AAA pitchers. Hendrickson is gone. Winn is gone. This is awesome by the way:
I’m sure most (some) of you expected me to cover twitter arguments in this weeks edition as yesterday was chock full o’ them. But I’m not going to beat a dead horse. Or a TV personality. Our last twitter exchange, the one before I was blocked, should pretty much put the nail in that coffin.
What we’ll focus on instead is the incessant repeating of Vlad Guerrero’s reputation for being “the best bad ball hitter” of all time, by everyone on TV or radio that utters his name. I think it’s been worse because it’s spring training and everyone needs to talk about the acquisitions this off season, but I don’t anticipate a big drop off once the season starts. In the last week or so I’ve heard Joe Angel, Fred Manfra, Gary Thorne, Mike Flanagan, John Kruk, Karl Ravech, Jon Hart and the rest of the 30 in 30 team at MLB Network talk about it.
