I'm all for chaining Mookie to the ground next time we play.

Marlins hire Kim Ng as GM. She's the first female GM of any pro men's sport. Ng has been in MLB for 30 years as a member of the White Sox, Dodgers and Yankees FO's. She does have 3 World Series rings

Baseball really needs a salary cap and salary floor.

David Dahl gets 1Y/3M from the Rangers good pick-up -- good chance for a bounce-back if he can stay healthy, then he can be flipped during the season. Rockies probably made a mistake not tendering him. 

I thought so too until I looked at his splits and saw that he's got dramatic home/road splits. Looks like he's another product of the Coors Field effect.

For $3M, it's an easy gamble to see if those go away out of Coors, as it's done for so many hitters.

The Redskins was just the start of it. They caved followed by the Edmonton Eskimos and now the Indians are no more. They should go to the Spiders name that was used by the Cleveland Spiders NL team back in the 1800s.

Its Spiders or bust to me. Makes too much sense and it has so much potential.

braves better not cower to these ppl.

The Braves may be a little safer for a bit because there name isn't "Redskins" or "Indians." Not gonna lie though, the Edmonton Eskimos sounds like a sick name, but if people are offended by it, you have to take that into account.

The only Native American team name that has staying power in the long run is the Seminoles with Florida State. They did it right by partnering with the Seminole tribe

Its all about money. NBA also guarantees players 49 to 51% of basketball revenues while not hiding any. MLB promises 54% but doesn't disclose a lot of revenue streams. The NBA is a way better run league and the players are more willing to compromise. While Manfred and Clark argued through media, Adam Silver was doing zoom calls with the full NBA union answering every question and concern while explaining his thinking.

Rob Manfred finally did something right!!!

 

Good article trying to make sense of what some of the new all-time records will be now that negro league stats are officially considered MLB stats.
