    Umpire Dale Scott had to be immobilized and stretchered out tonight.

    He's 57. It looks innocuous but those guys are tough so it must have hit him just right.

    Update on this: he passed the concussion protocol (which I had no idea was for the umps, too) and returned to the game. Wonder if he can skate?

    Rob Manfred was on the Braves TV broadcast for an inning. One of the most striking comments? He's open to realignment. More East vs West to reduce travel in the post season. Also kicking around doing away with the American League and National Leagues as they are.

    Also realizes that teams hang on dearly to some of the quirks as part of their teams identity.

    He can DIAF. There is a point I'll just give up. It sounds like Manfred won't be happy until baseball is played 5x5 with a hoop.

    This isn't football or hockey where the conferences are arbitrary and well within an old fan's lifetime. "MLB" itself is a novelty that we should think about scrapping. Go back to two separate leagues with completely separate organizations, meeting once and only once in the WS.

    MLB is destroying its own traditions, and that's all baseball is.

    But baseball needs new fans and you don't get young fans by doing things that mattered in the 50s. Baseball needs to adapt, it's too boring and slow especially to someone who didn't grow up with all these hallowed traditions.

    For me, going to Twins games as a kid was great. Now that I live nowhere near MN, I'll go to the occasional Rockies game but just to be outside and relax for a while not because baseball and its traditions are so great.

    100% agree. I watch baseball and have season tickets because of the traditions and quirks. It's a great way to spend an afternoon outside.

    If this dickwad throws all of that to the wind because a bunch of moron kids want scores of 100-95 or can't pay attention for more than 140 characters, then he can DIAF.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about. Things that mattered in the 50s?

    That part is more of what I hear from some of the younger people I work with. They see it as an old white man's sport that is too focused on when those fans were kids.

    The older I get, the more I hate young people. And I'm 32.

    That's twice in a week I've agreed with you.

    If you want scoring, T20 cricket is your answer. Those 1970 round stadiums would have been perfect!

    I've had 'em. They're actually decent. Taste kinda like fish, but not as flaky.
    I would be all over that.

    Kincaids has by far the best oysters plate I've ever had and at an extremely reasonable price. And since they bring them in 3x per week (a lot of high end places are only 2x) you're almost always ensured they're going to be fresh.
