I’m not saying it’s a good deal or smart or whatever, but I’m so used to the opposite of this happening that I’m pumped.
Padres are FUN. I love this, especially after watching the Rockies and Indians trade away their star players for bags of balls.

Come into my healing basement.
Are we going to have Minor League Baseball this year or not? Gonna be a real damn shame if I can't go see the Lynchburg Hillcats or Salem Red Sux this spring and summer. @hayvis when we XOOM next time (assume you too don't cut me out of ur life) I'll have to show you my Salem Buccaneers collection from '88-90. Plan on livestreaming from Lewis Gale Stadium to the motherland if we get live in person MiLB this year babby so be patient with me boss.

Without a salary cap these kind of signings always elicit an "it ain't my money" reaction from me. Who cares?

It also makes for good comedy with teams I don't like. Barcelona is paying Griezmann $1.2m a week lol.

The Kernels are advertising May 4th as Opening Day, so fingers crossed! I'm planning to swing buy the stadium next week and buy like $100 worth of ticket vouchers and hit up the clubhouse shop.

Only minor league team cut by the Phillies was the Williamsport Crosscutters. The biggest "change" was Clearwater and Lakewood swapped low-A and high-A designations. Clearwater now low-A and Lakewood now high-A.

Everyone in that first gif is 100% outwardly racist and proud of it

Have mercy
The sad kid in the second gif makes it for me. Imagine taking your grandkid to a playoff game and sitting next to those kind New York ambassadors.
That's grandpa's fault. Look at the energetic grandpa in the lower right and excited dad in upper left of the first gif explaining to their youngsters what the goons are doing. Gotta have some more pep.

BTW, I can't recommend the Baseball Prospectus Essential Guide and the Prospects Guide enough. I get them every year, great reading.

Straight fire emojis on the article about the Red Sox. What a garbage ownership group and disaster.
