A Hall-of-Famer retires from public life. The Astros make an offer to Dallas Keuchel. Derek Jeter doesn’t think fans should worry about winning and losing.

Do you know what would make baseball more interesting? Tiger traps in the outfield. An outfielder going after a fly ball would make one false step and the outfield grass opens up and he falls into a pit. Some pits would have soft foam in. Some wouldn’t, and the outfielder would likely end up on the disabled list after taking a hard tumble. And woe to the unlucky outfielder who fell into the pit that had a live tiger in it. The suspense would have audiences riveted. (And if you wanted to get literary about the whole thing, you can stick Kate Upton in selected pits.)

Somehow, I don’t think commissioner Manfred is going to take my calls on this one.

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