MMO Fan Shot: A Modest Proposal for Emotion in Baseball

An MMO Fan Shot by Gregory Shaw Baseball has a problem. For over one hundred years, baseball has been played with four bases, nine fielders and zero emotion. So, when you look at the current crop of miscreants like Yasiel Puig, David Ortiz, Jose Reyes and our very own Jenrry Mejia, things get confusing. What the hell are they doing? I’m no art major and I don’t think I’ll...

Sue Me For What?

I’ve got percoset running through my bloodstream and I’m really, really sleepy. So I might not have seen it right. Did the Mets actually beat the Nationals at Citi Field?
