Baseball was the first professional sport to return in an official capacity in the United States just two weeks ago, and it’s been a whirlwind.
The Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals have had several members of their organization test positive for COVID-19, which has led to the teams missing games. This has had a ripple effect, as St. Louis had to postpone their series against the Milwaukee Brewers last weekend, while the Marlins were not able to play the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals last week.

All four teams have a decent to really good chance at winning one or a few during this new decade, which begs the question, who’s most likely to hold a trophy first this decade?
It’s no secret the Red Sox have been a dumpster fire so far. 17 games into the season and they’re a shitty 6-11. They have the 2nd worst record in the American League. The Orioles have a better record than them. Yes, the Orioles. The team with the worst hitter in baseball.
It’s been a long time since I’ve typed up a baseball blog but I felt that this needed to come to your attention. Major League Baseball blows and we all know it. Not the sport, because baseball is as difficult as it gets. But the product out there is putrid. Which, in part, helped the Red Sox inflate their record this past season. Bad team after bad team, and bad owners not giving a damn is what will make the MLB see it’s demise. I came across an article by Yahoo! writer Craig Calcaterra who points out that this $10.2 Billion isn’t all shits and giggles. It could be the start of a downward trend for baseball. Give it a read, he exposes owners and how they make money of shit baseball.
