MLB Bullets Faces Some Guy

A break in the Cardinals hacking scandal. The Angels have a new boss, and it's same as the old boss. It was international signing day. Yasiel Puig is a pain and the Twins have a new pitcher who is just "some guy."

In the long and tragic history of the Cubs, I don't think anything compares to what happened to Laura Bassett on Wednesday. Only Bill Buckner's error in 1986 compares to that, and that only sent it to game seven. Sports can be cruel and it would be nice if some of the male athletes would be extended the same kinds of sympathy that female athletes like Bassett get. The agony of defeat indeed.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
