Outside The Confines: MLB has a mess to clean up

New, 11 comments

The Mets fired a GM but that’s just a small part of the problem. George Springer will play for the Blue Jays in 2021, but maybe not in Toronto. A pitching legend passes.

Days like today are the days I really didn’t miss working here over the past year. The news today, which Sara handled so deftly yesterday, is so . . . well, infuriating is really too mild a word. It’s hard for me to handle it and keep my already way-too-high blood pressure under control. I love this sport and every day I continue to ask myself whether or not it deserves my devotion. I can’t help but be reminded of this piece by John Oliver on Last Week Tonight (video) about soccer and FIFA. The sport is rotten and we still love it with all our hearts.

But today is the start of a new era, right?

And tomorrow will be a better day that today, Buster. Praise be.
