MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

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.
