If you mute the Cubs game and listen carefully you can hear Jonathan Papelbon having an aneurysm in the distance.

Junior LOVED staring at his home runs, and I always hated that about him.

Great ad by MLB. Need to market the sport to young people. Look at the NFL and NBA and even NHL. Attitude is fun.

Agreed. This isn’t golf.

I loved it. So many baseball sheriff pitchers love staring down batters after striking them out. Get in the other players' heads. It works.

If I had to choose between A) marketing the game to kids by eliminating the unwritten rules and letting the players have fun or B) changing the actual written rules to make the game shorter or "more interesting" (I call BS), I'll choose option A) all damn day.
