    MLB changes 2018?

    Oakland, Tampa, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh fans have probably had it worse.

    San Diego Padres focus-grouping new uniforms for 2020

    I think it's time to retire the 2004 font, but yeah, the color distribution is right.

    The brown could be more of a redder chocolate brown, but that could just be lighting.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Emery went 45/47 and perfect in the shootout in what felt like a real turning-point win in The Year The Blackhawks Saved Hockey. Crawford went wire-to-wire in the playoffs that year, but the Hawks probably don't get that run out of Crawford without Emery picking up two-fifths of the compressed schedule and throwing up a .922 with it. Hell of a goalie, sad to see him die so young, glad he got his name on the Cup.

    Just to put a bow on this, the actual line of "I am a Cardinal" is loads funnier than "Today, we are all Cardinals." Ah, we were kids.

    Here's hoping the Padres can settle on a uniform that focus groups agree is "mostly the least displeasing."

    I like forest green too, but the vividness of kelly green and athletic gold suits the Oakland A's on so many levels: baseball as summer sport, California, being untraditional. Rays should be in columbia blue and forest green. Tar Heel baseball with green instead of navy, basically.

    No, you're actually not, "today we are all _____" is classic CCSLC Mandela Effect.

    That's too bad, he's been a sizable part of the Cubs' recent success. When was the last time St. Louis fired a manager midseason? Had to be one of the times they plugged Schoendienst in, right?

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Here's Lambert not knowing his stuff again: One doesn't have to wonder at all. The Jets have the wealthiest ownership in the league and their small venue and small market overachieve into middle-market status. I'm sure their TSN money dwarfs the TV deals in Dallas, St. Louis, Nashville, et al. The line from Chipman has always been that they're not going to throw money away but will have the green light to spend to the cap when they're playing for a Cup. They're doing that now and we should expect them to spend to the cap.

    Agree to disagree: the goal of the post-Wahoo caps should be to retain the color balance of the hats they wore for the last 30ish years but without the objectionable logo:

    Why is that bad news? Kruger was an outstanding shutdown center when he was healthy. He was terrible with the Hurricanes because they didn't know how to use him in a "fling bad shots and pray" system, and was probably hurt. If the Hawks can actually score goals with their top three lines, Kruger is a useful piece on the fourth, though I'll allow for the possibility that here in the Golden Knights Era, no one can afford a pure defensive specialist at 4C or anywhere and that every line absolutely has to be Fast Dudes Doin' Stuff.

    By "red block C hat," do you mean "the hat with the red block C," or "the red hat with the block C"? Because the Tribe shouldn't have red hats.
