One of the many things non-fans find to complain about the MLB season is its length. For them, 162 games followed by the postseason is too much to follow. That makes sense. If you don’t like the game, that is a whole lot of baseball. But if you do, it is not hard to see at least one significant benefit to such a long season.Football teams can struggle for half the season and be...

Adam Wainwright explains Tuesday's horrific wild pitch

During Tuesday night’s Cubs-Cardinals game, Adam Wainwright threw a pitch that can only be described as 50 Cent-level bad.
