Julio Arias arrested for felony domestic violence.  He was suspended 20 games back in 2019 under the domestic violence policy.

He's done. POS.

Big blow to the Dodgers but they're loaded with pitching.

It is possible the Astro's will join the Yankees and the Red Sox watching the playoffs this year.  Nice.

Pathetic crowd at The Trop for a playoff game. Thousands of lower bowl seats which aren’t filled.

  Tough call with Woodruff out, Brewers still have a decent 3 rotation; buuut Dbags, I mean Dbacks advance.

Yeah, I’m guessing 25-30% of the tickets went unsold for Game one of the WC at Tropicana Field.

 

That’s…bad.

Rays fans expectations are probably higher than the WC round (As they should be given their track record). But I have a hard time giving them the benefit of the doubt as no one goes anyway. Bad location, bad market, no one to really root for as the team acts as a revolving door for players for years, though maybe that's changing a tiny bit.

Whatever fondness I had for the fans in the Tampa area waned when Hillsborough County couldn't put together a competitive offer to get the team the hell out of St Pete. 

 

LOL they had the third level covered in tarp so the capacity was reduced to 25k. They sold 19,704 tickets to the game today.

Twins up on the Jays, 3-0. Royce Lewis is getting in touch with his inner Harmon Killebrew.
