If it weren't for the e-mails being grey-area leaked and MLB having ⅖ a testicle compared to the NBA, that would be Donald Sterling territory sanctions-wise.

The Dogs will soon be joined in the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball by the Milwaukee Milkmen - who begin play this season! They're building their ballpark 2.2 miles from my house - so I plan to be out there a lot this summer!

Dogs vs. Milkmen is a much more fun rivalry.

Agreed!! I drive past the park every day on my way to work and slowly - but surely - it's coming together.

I think the difference might be that Joe Ricketts apparently doesn't have much (if anything) to do with the team - his kids - specifically Tom - run the franchise. I would hope MLB at least makes a statement condemning his behavior and that the Cubs - who have already issues a statement - take further steps to ensure he truly has no ties to the franchise going forward. He's a horrid human being.

The Dogs just play in Rosemont near O’Hare. Nothing exciting. Just a bland strip mall and hotel hell.

I really enjoyed the MiLB game I went to last summer — great fun/stadium experience. Makes me regret not going to see Vlad Jr. in Buffalo.

Crackton Rox are Cape Cod League...short-season A-ball. They're wedged between the fairgrounds, high school football stadium, and the Motor Vehicle Registry building where I found an Elmer Fudd-caliber shotgun casing sitting on the front steps last year after a hellish hour in line. Like every single municipal building in town the sportsball stadium is named after hometown hagiography subject Rocky Marciano.

I've never been to a game even though there's a bus right at the end of my street that'll take me there. They've got the best attendance by far in the Cape League being in a city of 90K that's only 4 commuter rail stops from downtown Boston, and I've heard great things from the townies.


Even though you have a par chance of getting shot in the fairgrounds parking lot during fair season. Or in the DMV parking lot during wabbit season. :meh:

It's insane to me that we're, what, less than ten days before pitchers and catchers report for most teams and Harper/Machado/Kimbrel still haven't signed somewhere. There haven't even been any great rumors in awhile!

Also, MLB and the MLBPA are mulling a universal DH. Amen. #endclownball.

Kimbrel doesn't surprise, given his demands and a less-than-stellar season. Likewise Harper—he has enough warts that he doesn't suggest long-term/super stud money. Machado is going to kill whichever club signs him unless he does a one-year deal. He screams "got paid, get lazy" to me.
Also, MLB and the MLBPA are mulling a universal DH. Amen. #endclownball.
But … but … strategy! How will the LaRussas of the world show off their big brains if they can't replace the tiring pitcher with a pinch hitter in the seventh?
