Reports broke out Tuesday that the MLB will test out robotic umpires in the an independent league. The MLB reached a three-year agreement with the Atlantic League. So that’s what we’re doing… adding robots?
My ass hurts because I’m butthurt that replay is being abused, rules are being changed, and baseball is somehow centuries away from being a modern game and also trying to be in the future. Isn’t it like that crappy Wild Wild West movie Will Smith did? Anyways, what the hell is the MLB doing? Continue reading “Do we Really Need The Terminator as an Umpire?”
Welcome back to the world’s greatest weekly preview of professional sports which is released on Friday afternoons!
This past week, the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics continued to… disappoint (nice call on Gordon Hayward last week Nick… NOT). Dywane Wade made an insane three-point shot to beat the Golden State Warriors, Kyler Murray was announced to be 5’10” Jason Witten decided to leave MNF and come back to the Dallas Cowboys, and Bryce Harper FINALLY chose a team, signing with the Phillies for THIRTEEN (13) YEARS AND $330 MILLION! SHEESH!
March is a great month for sports. March Madness begins on the 19th, playoff races will only heighten in the NHL and NBA, the first games of the MLB season begin on the 20th, while the traditional Opening Day will be the 28th. Hopefully it will finally stop snowing, but who knows; one step at a time.
It finally happened. It took until the last day of February, but Bryce Harper FINALLY chose the team for his future, picking the Philadelphia Phillies. In what ultimately looked like a competition between Philly, the San Francisco Giants, and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Harper chose the longevity and total dollars that the Phillies were offering. The bid of the Giants is said to have been at least 12 years and $310 million, while the Dodgers are said to have offered 4 years and $180 million, an absolutely astronomical short-term contract that would have been the highest AAV in MLB history.
