    I think a realistic ceiling for tebow is everyday AAA player. Occasional MLB Pinch Hitter would be surpassing all expectations

    He could do it. Finance won't hold him back from chasing this for ten years and hey... Ten years is a long time to be devoting your life to something. I think he can get there I just don't think he'll be there in the next few years.

    Cubs have always treated past players well, it is one of the things they do right.

    I'm going to sound like a jerk, but I'm just keepin it real.

    Any reason why there is a statue of Jose Fernandez outside of Marlins Park? Did he get a statue because he died or did he get a statue because he won 38 games in 4 seasons? I kinda thought that only the all-time greats get statues, not guys who were 'really good' for 4 years.

    Because the owner liked him even though he died from being an idiot. Which the news always fails to mention.

    I know. It just kinda bastardizes other statues. Stanton better have like 3 statues in that case.

    That just reminds me how cheap renaming the stadium was for the A's there. Cheapest possible thing they could do. Behind home plate paint and one graphic on a wall. Mini fireworks ceremony.

    As usual no money spent there so fans adorn the place with their artworks and do their own entertainment with the drums they bring in. Rickey's short speech was good though, getting recognition and being speechless as a long time hometown guy.

    Jackie Robinson Day at Rickey Henderson Field didn't go their way for the A's

    playing like Gabby Jay... YAY!

    Yesterday was a good day for walkoffs. Mariners even #baseballed.

    They were all high as fuck on that boat, but it was Jose who was determined to have been driving it I think.

    But he was still loved by that team and the fans. I'm not gonna complain about him getting a statue.

    Come to think of it, didn't they retire his number too? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    But anyway, I mean who else is getting honored like that when it comes to a team owned by Jeffrey Loria? They don't have the litter's pick of legendary players.

    Look who else got their statue tho:

    And if that game wasn't rained out the A's might have the same record as the Mariners...

    You know they're already worldwide leading to make a documentary on Tebow and flip the script.

    Bad news for ball. It's had a fresh wave of popularity in recent years with new faces winning World Series and the last thing it needs is to get dragged back into the PED days

    Dee Gordon and Bartolo got a whole year taken away.

    (And AROD) and Jeter exposed as a user but nobody cared.

    It'll be okay. MLB getting no press anyway either way.
    NFL stuffed all in your face, full coverage of maybe this guy could be drafted.

    MLB the show has a new animation they can add after giving up a HR

    Rounding 1st

    Pitcher reacts at the same time as the crowd. Good camera angle there. Jake Peavy kinda stuff.

    Manning didn't get caught. A place alleged him an a bunch of other athletes were in on something and they weren't. It was slander really and the news outlet that reported it no longer even exists.

    Pop off the bat sound better than even the commercial highlights.

    Bryce
    Solo HR in 1st
    Grand Slam in 2nd

    Made me wait the whole day later almost to get the video hard to navigate the section for media like that, late to put it up on ESPN. Wait til game was over, click the "WATCH HIGHLIGHTS" it wasnt even there. It was embedded next to the scores of all games.

    Hell no, Cubs fan here even back when we were the laughing stock of the MLB.

    But all these comeback wins are doing a number on my heart pressure.

    I get that as a Giants fan. Easy to look at the 3 rings but we scraped all of those. We especially didn't deserve to win the MadBum series, but y'know.

    Even here in Australia I see a bunch of Giants gear but 99% of them can't tell you who Aubrey Huff or Santiago Cassila are.

    I don't even think half of them know Lincecum haha, forget history. It's just trendy, they'll wear Cubs caps soon. You gotta remember though that Cricket rules here.

    Jason Hayward starting off hitting well, he seemed to adjust to going back to a line drive hitter instead of trying to hit a hr every time.

    Small things.

    Giants don't blow a save.

    Romo gets a homecoming party.

    Matt Cain pitches a great game... (wtf?)

    Giants beat Dodgers.
