When I saw the trade come thru my first thought was “wait, Devin Mesoraco makes $13 million?!?”

 

 

He was basically Johnny Bench offensively in 2014. Injuries suck. 

 

Watching him hit for the Mets against the Reds hours after he was supposed to play for the Reds is one of the weirder things I've seen in this sport. I chatted with him for a few minutes at Tin Roof in the winter of 2013. Couldn't have been nicer.

You ask me, I'd rather take Mets Triple-A than Cincinnati.

Considering that the man who snuck from SD to LA to party while on a road trip would have had all the parties he wanted and then some in his own back yard.

DBacks can leave Chase Field by 2022 without penalty and look for a new home in Maricopa County as voted on by the board of supervisors if the team drops the lawsuit demanding $187 million in upgrades.

And per USA Today they're probably moving to tribal land near Scottsdale.

Arizona just reopened its schools after a teachers' strike. I'm glad the children are learning again since the adults never will.

I wonder how much money the residents of Maricopa county and the state are going to willingly fork over so they can drive even further to their three D backs games a year. 

 

If I hadn't seen it up close and in person, I wouldn't believe it if you told me some of these stories about Arizona and how it's run. You, literally, can't make up this level of stupid.

"Although it may not be perfect, (the deal) best captures what's good for the county, what's good for our community, what's good for the taxpayer and what's good for the team," Chucri said.

 

Here's the thing about Arizona politics. When they spew a bunch of garbage nonsense to their constituents about "what's best for them", they actually, genuinely, believe this :censored:!

Do tribes normally have access to the $750 million to $1 billion it will cost to build an climate-controlled ballpark? I know they make money on gambling but those are some big bonds to pay off.

Didnt think it was possible but the Reds just swept the Dodgers in LA and have now won six straight since trading for Matt Harvey. Where was this team for the past month and a half?

Sweeping the dodgers isn’t an accomplishment this season. They are a worse dumpster fire than the reds were

The 2018 World Champion Cincinnati Reds will be one of baseball's all-time greatest stories.

 

It always felt like everything went wrong all at once for a team that wasn't that good to begin with. They're not as bad as their record and they're not as good as the last six games. Winning is more fun than losing though!

ESPN's mic-ing of the field is stellar.  Gives us moments like this, good freakin' god:
