Really?



How is this antigay? There are a lot more female cock suckers than male cock suckers.
Sounds like the MLB and Yahoo are sexist.

You get more clicks when you use the terms homophobic or anti gay in the headline.

This is like Yuli's ***** impression. You get in trouble if it's caught on camera. I like how this article insinuates that George should have been suspended. There is a precedent, as Kevin Pillar was suspended two games for calling the pitcher a "f-g f-t". That was dumb, and a suspension here would have been even worse.

And Angel Hernandez gets away scot free once again! That dude has pictures of very important people in compromising situations to stay employed this long with his poor job performance.

I'm not clicking the yahoo trash. Was George actually disciplined or was yahoo advocating for discipline?

MLB said he had been disciplined but wouldn't comment on specifics. My guess is it was a small fine. Probably happens more often than we know about.

Actually pretty interesting that this is Springers 7th DH day

Wonder if he is nursing something as I would have surely guessed Brantley would lead the main guys in DH appearances

I'd take that option over white DHing.

At Sun Trust Park this afternoon to watch the Braves and Padres. This stadium is amazing and the areas outside the stadium are just phenomenal. Hope with all the property that Crane is scooping up that the Astros will build similar entertainment venues around Minute Maid.

General baseball question: do managers over think platooning hitters based on RH/LH pitchers?

It will take a little longer to buy and develop, but that would be fantastic.

And Diaz at 3B. That's a long throw for a noodle arm.

I think it was the exact opposite. They never put much thought into it at all. They just did it. Now there's analytics to help drive those decisions.

With the long flyouts yesterday and the HR today, hopefully he's about to go on a tear.
