    I was in a wedding as a bridesmaid back in the late 70s. The bridesmaids were dressed in a similar rainbow color palate as the picture on the left (I was in baby blue), but to make it even more awesome, the dresses had HOOP SKIRTS!!! #notmakingitup

    While I'm sure there's a wedding album somewhere with photographic evidence of this nightmare, I thankfully do not know where it exists.

    I'm not even much of a baseball fan and must sadly scratch Panda from my list of friends as well.

    Hoop skirts- harder to sit in, cooler and less scratchy than crinoline? I'm not sure which would be worse.
    Almost as fun as the bridesmaids pics in family albums were the guy's outfits. It was lots of fun to thumb through these as a kid! I hope my kids find my friend's album someday where we were alternating in Red, White, & Blue (Independence day wedding) with lots of asymmetrical necklines and two pieces where someone's belly button ring (not mine!) was showing.

    Play off tickets are so expensive. I don’t even want to look st red six tickets. And there are seats at Fenway behind a pole yes a pole and I’m sure they are still 100.

    Wait, when did we start talking about the National League? How did I let this inferior league talk happen?

    Yes, you do.

    I feel like working games is probably very different than just watching. But yeah, your Brewers don't really see much playoff time. At least not without CC Sabathia. Sabathia is ours now and I'm not particularly willing to part with him (I don't hate him as much as some people), but if you need a pitcher, I am willing to part with Sonny Gray (him I hate).

    See, this is what happens when we talk about the National League!

    Haha I've seen pictures of dressed like that ... now I get the aversion to peach bridesmaid dresses.

    If you find this photographic evidence, please come back and post it.

    Wedding pictures are fun.

    Oh Fenway. They may actually charge more for playoffs tickets than the Yankees. (I've been on the tour of Fenway (not wearing a Yankees hat) but I've never been to a game there)

    Ouch. NL all the way.

    TBH I bet they are more than that, because I would even buy $100 tickets behind a pole at Fenway during the playoffs and just stand around somewhere. Haha.

    No comment. #PitchersCantHit

    True story: the Yankees have standing room only tickets. Those are only $101 for the Wild Card game.

    Don't forget where CC Sabathia started...
    He was Cleveland's first.

    We don't have much to brag about here, especially this year, but CC was a bright spot.

    You mean the better league where pitchers still get to hit?

    We nearly traded for Sonny Gray last year and I’m quite glad we didn’t.

    Thank you for starting CC's career and making him into the kind of pitcher that the Yankees wanted to acquire.

    No, I mean the league where each team only has 8 batters and one dead spot in the lineup. And where people who haven't batted since college (if they even bat in college ... I don't know if they do) run the bases and get injured and are never the same again.

    I don't know that he would be terrible for you. He may just be one of those players that can't handle the pressure of playing in New York. But he certainly sucks for the Yankees. Ugh.

    Not ever pitcher is a dead spot. Personally I like that everyone hits. I do think the MLB should be universal in either everyone has a DH or nobody does though.

    Definitely get that. We had Zack Greinke as well. He has anxiety and you can tell he went kind of down hill when he left us and went to bigger markets. We can never afford to keep good players for very long.

    Babe Ruth was not a dead spot when he was a pitcher.
    In the minors everyone has a DH. Which is why if they make it universal, that's how they'd have to go. Either that or get rid of the DH in the minors. But it's ridiculous to have these guys through a minor league system where they don't hit and suddenly have them hit (although at some point in time there were leagues where there was no DH when two NL affiliates played each other - but I don't know if that still exists because I haven't seen it in a while).

    It's because nobody wants to live in Milwaukee :)

    I beg to differ but I don’t actually live in the city of Milwaukee either...

    Seriously Cleveland has so many players across all sports that are ok here but go on to be awesome with other teams. Except NFL kicker Phil Dawson. He was always awesome here. Once he scored the majority, if not all, of the Brown's points in a game.

    My city is sort of sad...

    Speaking of the Browns ... are we thinking 0-15-1 record this season?

    I just saw an apartment listing that mentioned a tall super to change the lightbulbs in your high ceilings.
    I don't need a tall super. I just need a high stool or a ladder. I'm an adult, I can change my own !&(# lightbulbs. I do it at home all the time.
    Grr...

    You mean the league where strategy actually matters. Just ask Tony LaRussa, who won a World Series in both leagues and said the National League game is better.

    It can be. I worked Events Staff in college so I ushered a lot of soccer and volleyball games including NCAA tournament games. I still got to watch most of the matches. As a side note, I think they liked putting me near the student section because I knew exactly how fast to be on the court after the game to discourage rushing the court. How did I know that? Because I had rushed the very same court my freshman year after a big comeback.

    Senior Circuit all the way. I would get rid of the DH at all levels. I might allow it in the All Star Game, but that's it.

    Madison Bumgarner says otherwise.

    And the league where if you can't field very well, you don't play.

    I rather liked it when they blew a 3-1 series lead in the 2012 NLCS and lost the 2014 NLCS in 5 games both times to my Giants. And I liked it when they beat the Dodgers in the 2013 NL playoffs.

    You are correct. I just looked it up and tickets are $170 for the bleachers and $235 for real seats plus tax. It’s like $500 plus for two people. Plus parking Boston and eating. I’ll pass thanks.
