In the early 2000s NBA there seemed to be a number of MJ clones; no one as good as MJ but these hyper athletic two guards, like Kobe, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Jason Richardson, etc.

It feels like now we have a bunch of Mike Trout clones, nobody quite as good as Trout, but a bunch of big dudes that can hit for power and flat out fly.

Too much Jeter in this pregame show but it’s kind of hysterical. Can’t tell if Arod is a great actor or genuinely does not hate Jeter. Part about moving to a new position and not even glancing over at Jeter was great.

Happy Happy Joy Joy for the Cubbies. Ian with 2 HR's. They lead the Cards 3-0 in the top of the 3rd. Now 5-0 in the mid.

Outman is such a fantastic name for a centerfielder. (well, on defense at least, and especially on diving catches)

The Angels have scored 13 runs and counting in the third inning in Coors Field, the first three batters of the inning homered and it got much worse from there.

I was thinking about this the other day. Of all the traditionally bad teams, are the Rockies most likely never to turn it around someday ... just be cause of how they're run as an organization?

That, but also Coors has to be the hardest park to build a team for.

21 runs in two consecutive innings has to be close to the record.
