"We've sold roughly 18,000 grasshoppers," Hale said. "That's more than the restaurant [that runs the stand], Poquitos, sells in a year."

I've decided to make a baseball field in my backyard. Still has a lot of work left to go, but I dug out 30 ft. basepaths.

Rays sweep the Tigers for the first time since 2008.

Lots of stuff going on:
- This Matt Harvey thing is a mess
- The Orioles and Red Sox games are must see TV now
- The Cubs have returned to the mean.
- The NL has a home run race cooking
Which is the bigger surprise? The Rockies are first? The Giants are last? The Yankees can hit?

The Giants have been hard to watch.

Lake Merritt/Laney College will also be nice aesthetically and is close to BART. But the optics and politics will be tough for taking over community college property (sports > school).
Both sites will have prime commercial and residential property sprouting up independently of the ballpark next to the proposed locations as well.
Of course, it's great that this stadium project is privately financed, with the city and county chipping in the infrastructure costs with expected ROI on jobs, culture, and a revitalized urban scene.

Jeffry Loria will soon be gone as the owner of the Marlins. Thank God and good riddance. The day he took over that team was a dark one indeed. But it looks like he screwed the Dolphins and the Rays over good before leaving. His deal with the city & state over Marlins Park was so rotten the state of Florida will no longer allow any state owned assets to assist in sports projects. Once he crossed the bridge he burned it and pissed on the ashes.
With the MLS looking at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg and all the Tampa sites drying up it may be the Rays are boxed out of a new stadium anywhere in the Tampa Bay area. Which means the team will be sold and moved. Likely to Montreal. It's a shame it came to be that way. But anyone familiar with Vincent Namioli and how the Devil Rays came to be and how they ended up stuck in that ugly concrete tomb they play in will hardly be surprised at this
There is an old saying "What begins i misery tends to stay in misery". A fitting epitaph for the Rays if this ends like it looks like it will.

This is genius. Essentially a Season Ticket subscription for $20 a month.
Went ahead and took the plunge. I suppose it's as good as time as any to cord-cut my DirectTV. At least I'll do that when the NBA Playoffs are over.

Good thing you got in when you did Leferd. The A's ballpark passes are sold out: http://ballparkdiges...t-2000-for-now/
In other news 43% of all Rays team ABs end in a walk, a SO, or a HR. They are leading the majors by 19%
Glad I did it!
All hail the God Emperor of the Three True Outcomes.

You know what? Thank God for baseball. It's on literally every day. It takes all of the attention you wish to pay to it and fills it with drama and entertainment. For 9 beautiful innings and 3 peaceful hours you can forget the world is going to hell in a handbasket all around you. If you team wins it's great. If they get the absolute tar beaten out of them, like the Marlins did in LA last night, it does not matter. They will play again tomorrow.
I've got the Rays vs Yankees on the radio now and when that goes off the Marlins will play the Dodgers. And later tonight the Memphis Redbirds are in Fresno and I can catch that on the radio too.
Trump who? Never heard of him.

Dude needs better plate discipline if he wants a call up to The Show.

That ump is all about the letter of the law/rule.
