If you're an adult wearing a baseball cap backwards, I immediately think less of your capabilities.

If I was going to give somebody a task and they showed up wearing a baseball cap backwards, I would immediately be less sure of their capability to fulfill said task. I am sure I have a huge confirmation bias with respect to this, but it sure feels like every time I have to interact with such a person my theory grows stronger. They don't even have to be named Kyle or Brent.

QB's should have a separate award, like the Cy Young award in baseball for pitchers. It is too difficult for any other position to win MVP.

Now that the regular season is over, we are discussing end of the year awards and MVP is always a hot topic. I find it frustrating that once again, almost all the talk and hype is about quarterbacks. The last time a non QB won the MVP was in 2012 when Adrian Peterson nearly broke Dickerson's rushing record and carried the Vikings to the playoffs. In the last 20 years, only 3 MVP awards have ever been given to non QB's (a WR has never won MVP). It seems that unless another player can break a single season record, they won't even be in the discussion for MVP.

The position of quarterback is, in some ways, like pitchers in baseball; they have more control over the game than any other position and are involved in every play every time they are on the field. So naturally, they are going to be the most important position. As such, they should have their own award like the Cy Young award, because they do deserve recognition for their incredible talent and skill, but the current system overshadows other great players.

You want to grow the game of baseball? Make the beer $5.

Ok here’s a rant. There’s so much talk about how to grow the MLB’s fan base. We watch in horror as Manfred guts the game to try to β€œspeed it up” and make it more β€œengaging”, and not only will it fail, it will turn away old school fans.

Want to get more people to like baseball?? Make the beer $5. Make the hotdogs $1.50. Make the peanuts $2. Get people in the door, and get them to come back.

You’re a baseball fan, what does every single non-baseball fan say to you: β€œI like going to the games, but I don’t like watching it on TV”. People like going to games because it’s a fun, chill, family-friendly activity to do with your people, not necessarily because they like the sport. But, get them in the park enough times, and they’ll learn how the game works. They’ll learn some of their team’s players. They’ll gain some loyalty and BAM! They’ll become a fan. I’m willing to bet it’s how most of us became fans when we where kids.

Want more people to like the sport, make it easier to come to the games! Unless you live in a couple major markets, you can easily find MLB tickets for under $20. But if you dare to get snacky, you get gouged for twice what you payed for your ticket to eat or drink. I’m not saying everything has to be cheap, premium concessions should be priced at a premium, but affordability needs to be considered.

It’s time to stop focusing on the game-play accessible, and focus on making the experience arround the game accessible. American Football is one of the most convoluted and complicated games out there, but people gravitate to it because the primary viewing method is so accessible and cheap.

There’s data to back this up, the Atlanta Falcons started a Fan First menu at their stadium with affordable prices and TRIPLED their concessions revenue.

The fan experience is the best asset of baseball, and the best tool MLB has to grow the game. They need to focus on what the people care about, and the people care about snacks and beer.

TL;DR: Make it easy for people to have a great time at MLB games, and they’ll grow into fans. Stop gouging the life blood of the sport for every single penny.

Edit: Holllyyy shit I seem to have struck a nerve. Thank you kindly for the awards. I’d like to note, that a $5 Budweiser isn’t, like, a crazy good deal in most of the country.

3 baseball hall of famers died this month that all used the number 44. Some more weird details inside.

EDIT: I’m a dumbass, one of those athletes played basketball and the other played football. Pretty big fuvk up on my part but still interesting that one of each player from the major 3 US sports passed and all had the number 44. But it wouldn’t be too far fetched for that to be a coincidence.

One of them, the legendary hank aaron just took his first shot of the covid vaccine two weeks ago. I noticed something weird in this article. At the top there is a note saying that they misquoted him saying the vaccine will do more harm than good. Later in the article when the quote comes up, you can tell the quote has been poorly manipulated by an editor because it doesn’t even make sense anymore because now it says the vaccine β€œwon’t harm more than good.” That’s just not even english and shows that someone went in and replaced the word β€œwill” with β€œwon’t” without reading the rest of the sentence.

The first two deaths, Floyd Little and Paul Westphal were on january 1st and 2nd this year.

All these dates look similar.

Paul Westphal: 01/01/2021

Floyd Little: 01/02/2021

Hank Aaron: 01/22/2021

All 1’s and 2’s (and zero(s), multiple depending on how you write out the date)

Now this next part is just some stereotypical conspiracy theorist number stuff but I saw someone else point it out on twitter and thought it was interesting.

01/02/2021 : 1 + 2 + 20 + 21 = 44

also i then noticed that if shorten yesterday’s date (hank aaron) to just 01/22/21 you get 44 again

1 + 22 + 21 = 44

And on a final note i’ve saved the most unrelated bit of information (lol) but the rapper MF DOOM died october 31st but his death was announced 2 months later on december 31st (day before floyd little death) and on the announcement picture he was wearing a jersey with 33 on it. in the announcement his wife kept saying he β€œtransitioned” instead of passing away and how he’s with β€œthe all” now and some other weird stuff like that.

that last part is unrelated to the rest of this post but i’m curious if any of you have noticed some coincidences like that. i think that something is happening. i get this feeling that people who can afford to are evacuating earth right now.
