I've had very little respect for the intellectual maturity of many pro athletes for pretty much ever, but covid has just solidified that most of these guys shouldn't be looked up to by anyone, even their pets.   If Brandon Kintzler's dog graduated from obedience school, it's probably smarter than its owner.

Given how petty a lot of baseball players can get (beaning batters, charging the mound, etc.) it's pretty clear to me most professional athletes aren't usually all that book smart. Most of them are immature, whiny, but hey, can't say I blame them. I wish I could get paid millions to play sports, too.

I know there's union issues, but they should just suspend all unvaccinated players, whether they test positive or not.  I guess they'd have the option of converting to some nutty religion that wants people to die if they get sick, but I don't think many would go that route. 

 

I'd rather not even watch these meat heads play, than watch them and get invested in a possible playoff run, only to have the rug pulled out from under it when one of them gets sick.

Bit of a frightening situation in Kingsport for the Appy League Kingsport Axemen. Former player, Matthew Taylor, was arrested on Thursday after threatening the team. He made social media comments vowing for a Columbine 2.0. As a result for the safety of the team and fans, the remaining Axemen season was cancelled by USA Baseball. A travel team will fill out the the remaining schedule

So no jab, no job, right?

I see the Reds annual post all star break implosion has begun right on schedule.

 

Was at the very winnable game on Saturday night that they didn't win. It's almost like the glaring bullpen problem that hasn't been addressed isn't going to fix itself.

At a minimum, I would argue that any player who isn't vaccinated without a legitimate medical reason who either ends up contracting COVID, or is a close contact with someone else and ends up having to be unavailable, should be fined their game check for each game that they miss, because their own negligence is responsible for their unavailability. 100% believe that. You made a choice, fine. That whole "you're responsible for your own actions" thing applies here just like it does anywhere else.

 Canadian government finally gave clearance for the Blue Jays to return to Toronto. I was really hoping one of the conditions was to have each personnel for every team that comes in to have at least one vaccination shot.

I wonder if they extended the Vancouver Canadians High A team the same courtesy?

The Brewers and their fans thank you 🙂

I wonder if the Canadian government will use this to keep visiting players without the shot out of the country. I know that's the reason Erik Hurtado went from Montreal to the Crew.

Yankees just blew a 2-run lead in the 9th to the Red Sox, and then threw 4 wild pitches in the 10th to cough it up. Eesh. Glad I'm on this side of the rivalry right now.

So they pulled a Mets? 😛

Watching the Brewers play the White Sox is like watching my two favorite kittens get into a fight.  I would love to see these teams in a "Hiawatha Series" at the end of the season, not getting in each others' way when both are in first place.

I hate interleague play.
