Opening night lineup for the Dodgers:
Crawford LF
Puig RF
Ramirez SS
Gonzalez 1B
Ethier CF
Uribe 3B
Ellis C
Gordon 2B
Ryu P

Nats stack up pretty well against this in theory.

I think if a pitcher commits an error, the runs should still be earned.

They'll have a shot of winning at least 1 of every 5 games so long as Fernandez stays healthy.

Angels hitting coach Don Baylor injured his ankle catching the ceremonial first pitch. It looked bad.

Alvarez and Eovaldi are solid as well and they'll probably find something good in the Turner/Koehler/Hand/Toronto prospects bunch to fill the rotation with as well. Their issue is offensive production from anyone outside of Salty and the outfielders. I like Garrett Jones and Casey McGehee, but relying on them too heavily is unwise.

I guess he's battled multiple myeloma in the past, explains how his leg could fracture so easily :(

The Astros are giving the Yankees a good old-fashioned ass-whuppin' :lmao:

After two innings, CC Sabathia has given up 6 runs on 6 hits, and the Yankees are looking for their first baserunner. Carlos Beltran with an error in right field. The Astros have two homers and Altuve has two singles.

Been pretty much a nightmare so far. Jeter HBP in the forearm, McCann foul ball to the hand. Just awful.

http://deadspin.com/new-st-louis-ballpark-village-has-a-ridiculous-dress-c-1552078792

more reason to not like the cardinals

so basically...young black men, not allowed.

only type of people that dress in the manner that the dress code forbids. for the most part.

better shirt-and-tie it up, if you wanna be a St. Louis fan.

cardinals fans are pretty much recognized as the worst in baseball. red sox fans a close 2nd.

at least yankees fans openly admit that many of them are bandwagoners, and at least there is good diversity among the fanbase and heck, yankees fans have seen the most winning of anyone, so they can kinda talk trash anyways.

phillies are nowhere near as smug as the cards and red sox. very annoying and loud and dirty, but i can't stand smug baseballs fans, probably my biggest annoyance with the sport

the fact that the cards have the best organization is baseball means their fans are way more out in the open. phillies fans are all depressed by amaro these days

That kind of dress code is at a lot more bars than you might think. I don't really blame them to be honest. Seriously, who wants to see anyone walking around with there boxer shorts above their pants because their jeans are just above their knees? Wrong element? Yeah, I can see it too. Gangs are stupid. Period. Young 20 something Cards fan is rockin' a Cards jersey and red bandana and gets shot or assaulted by a banger thinking he's reppin' the Bloods. That kinda stuff happens and St. Louis is a hot bed of gang activity.

Also, sleevless shirts on men? Well that also leaves out the rednecks who love sleevless flannels. Profanity on clothing? There's something wrong with banning that? Sweat pants and sweat suits seem like an no brainer. Now the long shirts also make a bit of sense. A long untucked shirt like that makes it much easier to hide a firearm.

I know the reaction is to consider such bans as racist or biggoted, but it's also pragmatic. You post the rules so everyone can see it and apply it to everyone.

The company running it also runs power and light in KC. There, they're accused of, among other things, employing people to pick fights with black patrons so that they could then be ejected
