Games We Play
So if Hostess is going out of business, do we still get to call Minnesota the Twinkies?
Damn, you just made me miss Michael Kay. Winter's coming....
Welp, looks like Melk's getting paid.
 I'm through being outraged at what baseball does. Let the players do PEDs all they want, what difference does it make? They'll still get paid, so it's not really cheating, is it?
Nobody had better ever talk about scandal in baseball or anything having to do with rules anymore, nor should owners complain about being able to maintain or compete; we know it doesn't matter because there's always one team out there that doesn't give a crap about perceptions or any of that. The bottom line is "winning" and making money. I don't even want to hear what their explanation is for signing him, just pay the money and STFU, keep it moving.
The sport has never been on the level about PED use and the so-called penalties.
That's why I have never given a shit.
Tell me Ryan Braun was clean, with a straight face. Yet, Bonds and McGwire and Clemmons are vilified.
Makes no sense.
 You're insane! Clarence Clemmons is a hero to all!!
